How to get Briars Contempt Linear Fusion Rifle?

The Briars Contempt is a new Linear Fusion Rifle that has a chance to drop from the first and last encounter in The Root of Nightmares Raid. To obtain it, you must own the newest Destiny 2 Lightfall expansion. In the Raid, each weapon can drop randomly from a specific fight. So it takes a few runs before players will collect what they need. Luckily the new raid is short and easier than the previous one.

Once acquired for the first time, all The Root of Nightmares weapons have a chance to drop from the two hidden chests. Also, after the final encounter, you can interact with the boss Nezerac’s Scythe and focus the weapon with Spoils of Conquest, the currency obtained from all Raids in Destiny 2. Focusing will provide you with the weapon that you obtained before and unlocked in collections. Also, once per week, the first weapon you’ll “focus” will have guaranteed Deepsight Resonance.
