Destiny 2: Lightfall has just dropped, and the Season of Defiance has never looked better. With the new Strand element, players have more opportunities than ever to customize their guardian and try out brand new play styles. However, there is a lot of love for the original subclasses in this system as well. The Vexcalibur in Destiny 2 is a valid option in the Energy slot for any melee-centric Void character. Let’s talk about how you can find this new exotic weapon and why you might want to incorporate it into your build.
How to Get the Vexcalibur in Destiny 2
The Vexcalibur is one of the new weapons in Destiny 2‘s “The Variable” questline. To do this, head to the Gulch of Earth and collect the six code fragments scattered around the map. From there, head to the cave on the left-hand side of the trees on the hill of the gulch to begin the //node.ovrd.AVALON// mission. Once you complete the mission, you will unlock the glaive, which you can customize with mods to your liking.
“The Variable” takes place entirely in The Gulch. Begin by going to the top of the hill next to the Cabal Gear. Then, tuck under the bridge for trace two and go to the top of the hill on the other side for the third. Find the fourth and fifth trace in the group of trees, then look near the billboard for the sixth trace.
Once you’ve obtained all six in the time limit, head into the cave adjacent to the third trace and begin the quest. This is an 1800 Power dungeon.
Once you have the glaive, you’re not quite done. There are several mods that you can slot in, such as “Authorization Override” and other weekly intrinsic traits that you can collect.
When you use the shield block of Vexcalibur, you grant overshields to yourself and nearby allies. You deal more melee damage with the overshield and refresh it on kill, making it a fantastic mix of defensive and offensive in a glaive. It’s really worth visiting the Gulch for this thing!
