Farming weapons in Destiny 2 can be a long process, especially those that come from dungeons and can drop randomly from specific encounters. This guide will shortly explain The Navigator Dungeon Exotic weapon and how to get it.
Destiny 2 The Navigator
You can get and unlock Destiny 2 The Navigator from Ghost of the Deep final boss. It’s a unique strand Trace riffle with a fantastic support trait. There aren’t many good trace rifles in the game, but this gem is worth the grind and time. The Navigator drop rate is low (around 5%), so you’ll need to be patient and most likely complete the dungeon multiple times before you get it.
Strand Exotic Trace Rifle – Ghosts of the Deep
The new Navigator exotic weapon from Ghosts of the Deep Dungeon is Strand Trace Rifle with the unique Protective Weave perk:
The Navigator Dungeon Exotic
- Weapon Type: Trace Rifle
- Element: Strand
- Intrinsic Trait: Protective Weave – Firing this weapon at an ally grants Woven Mail to both the user and the target.
- Trait: Weft Cutter – Dealing sustained damage severs the target.
- Basic Trait: Full Bore, Light Battery
How to get The Navigator
The Navigator can only drop after you defeat the final boss, Simmumah ur-Nokru, from the third chest in the Destiny 2 Ghost Ghost of the Deep Dungeon. The new activity is part of season 21, Season of the Deep and Lightfall – so you need to own the Lightfall expansion (Lightfall+Annual Pass or Lightfall Dungeon Key) to be able to participate in the Ghosts of the Deep Dungeon.
You can access the Ghost of the Deep Dungeon from H.E.LM, as shown in the picture below. Ghosts of the Deep will challenge Guardians to submerge into the depths of Titan’s methane sea to confront the Lucent Hive and uncover what was lost to the waves.
Here are all the steps to get The Navigator:
- Own or purchase the Lightfall+Annual Pass or Lightfall Dungeon Key
- Head to the H.E.L.M. and choose the New Dungeon Icon on the top left side of the screen.
- Complete all three encounters in the activity.
- Loot the final chest and get The Navigator Exotic Trace Rifle.
Is The Navigator Exotic Weapon Good?
This new Trace Rifle not only deals considerable damage, but its’ unique perk, Protective Weave, provides a valuable buff for your fireteam, which is very promising. Undoubtedly it’s something you should try to get. We’ll test the weapon and update this guide to provide more information about it and whether it will find its use in our builds.
