In this article, we discuss how to get Recluse, the coveted submachine gun that was introduced to Destiny 2 as part of Season 6 – Season of the Drifter.
How To Get Recluse In Season Of The Drifter
Destiny 2’s PvP meta is increasingly fickle, but you won’t hear any complaints from your fellow teammates if you include the new Recluse SMG in your Crucible kit. The Recluse has been coveted in Destiny 2 since its introduction during the Season of the Drifter. You’re going to have to play a lot of Crucible to get your hands on this submachine gun, but thankfully, it’s not so bad due to some Crucible changes that were made around the launch of Shadowkeep.
Why the Recluse?
Recluse is an impressive Submachine Gun that makes PVP and PVE very fun indeed. It has two very useful advantages – Feeding Frenzy and Master of Arms. Feeding Frenzy increases reload speed for some time and Master of Arms improves damage for the weapon after kills. This gun allows you to melt PVP opponents and PVE enemies alike.
The coveted weapon is a no-frills bullet hose at 900 rounds per minute, and its special Master of Arms perk buffs outgoing damage if you land a kill with a different weapon in your loadout.
The Recluse thus promotes synergized swapping between a sturdy one-two punch setup, and it’s a horrific surprise for long-range enthusiasts trying to protect themselves from unwarranted close-quarter surprises.
This is how to get Recluse :
Go to the Tower and Pursue Lord Shaxx: He’ll have the quest for you.
Getting the Recluse involves a lot of PVP (which makes sense as it’s a PVP pinnacle weapon), however, it’s worth the grind and it is a must-have addition to any Guardian arsenal. Let’s start the guide on how to pick up the quest and work your way through the PVP grind to get Recluse by going to Shaxx.
Shaxx will continue standing in his stoic resignation looking like Peter Pan, but he’s probably smiling behind his helmet for the well-behaved Guardian who takes his Pursuit and keeps it safe in the inventory.
Complete the “Stuff of Myth” Triumph: earn Crucible wins, receive the Glory rank of Fabled
This can be found in the triumph tab under Crucible and Glory. This step of the quest requires you to reach Fabled Rank in Competitive PVP and get 30-50 wins in PVP. You can progress this in Quickplay, however, Survival and Iron Banner make the most efficient progress.
Reaching Fabled rank means getting 2100 Glory points.
Like the Gambit-flavored 21% Delirium questline, this is a balls to the wall tough act to rack up ranks and wins to appease Triumph’s specifications. Glory ranks are earned through 4v4 Competitive matches, so you’ll need to pay close attention to teamwork and coordination to maintain as high a win rate percentage as possible (over 50 percent is ideal)—losses can cause your rank to slip down and wash off several hours of effort.
Fabled is the fourth of the six Glory ranks, so it’s not far fetched to reach your goal. A victorious standard match brings up your required wins by 1%, so it’s always nice to jump into some Iron Banner rounds whenever Lord Saladin sets up shop to fasten your progress.
Players cannot lose Glory ranks below Fabled I
Losing a match reduces Glory streak by 2 rather than resetting
Losing a match reduces Valor or Infamy streak by 1 rather than resetting
Glory adjusts more quickly to match the player skill
Bungie has also added a Survival: Freelance mode meaning you can solo queue for competitive playlists. As everyone is going into the playlist solo, it makes it less likely to meet well-drilled teams. You are still going to encounter top players, but it’s easier than it has been in previous seasons with these changes.
On your way to reaching Fabled Rank, you should hit the required amount of wins. If you don’t, get those wins and then return to the Tower. Once you have reached Fabled I, you can navigate to the triumphs tab and complete the triumph.
Please keep in mind that as and when you do hit Fabled I rank, the triumph doesn’t autocomplete, you have to go into one more match for the triumph to complete. You can go into one more match, win or lose or even queue and then exit for the triumph to complete.
There’s good news and bad news on this one. The bad news is if you don’t like PVP, then it’s going to be a grind (however it is worth it). The good news is in the Destiny 2: Shadowkeep expansion Bungie changed the way Glory is earned.
Pick up the Recluse from Lord Shaxx
The final step of the quest is to go back to Shaxx in the Tower and pick up your new Recluse. It’s fully master worked and is a lot of fun to use so jump into PVP and start dishing it.
That’s it for this quick guide of how to get Recluse. There’s a fantastic reason for why everyone wants a Recluse, and now you’ve worked hard enough to have one to call your own.
