When you're on the Moon, we guess you should do as people on the Moon do? That joke worked a little better in our heads. Anyway, if you're playing Destiny 2 and you haven't yet found yourself checking out the Moon weapons or making use of the Lectern of Enchantment, then you're missing out. Check out our Every Waking Moment Destiny 2 guide to get started on picking up that SMG and for more information about the Essence quests.

Every Waking Moment Destiny 2 Guide: How to Get This SMG

You get the Every Waking Moment weapon from finishing the Essence of Obscurity quest which you turn in at the Lectern of Enchantment. If you're wondering what other cool shooty things you can get from said Lectern, check out our full list of all the Moon weapons that we're aware of to date. The premise of the Lectern is that you can use it to purify these new lunar Essences, and completing the requirements for purification for each Essence will spit out a corresponding weapon. You can grind away at this until you get the roll that you want. 

To get this SMG, it's pretty simple. Like the idea behind all the other Moon weapons, the Essence of Obscurity will have to undergo some purification before you're rewarded. To purify this Essence, you have to complete the following objectives:

  • Finish 50 activities (either Lost Sectors, Patrols, or Public Events) on the Moon
  • Kill 50 enemies with a submachine gun
  • Possess the Withered Plumes from the Circle of Bones

If you're not sure where to find the Withered Plumes, we've got a guide out on that which explains the location in detail so that you don't have to second-guess yourself. Once you've got the Withered Plumes (which you only have to find once), you'll be able to use the Lectern of Enchanemtn to your heart's content to roll on this so long as you've ticked off the other requirements as well. 

Now that you know how to get the Every Waking Moment Destiny 2 SMG, you can cross that off your list and move on to other Moon endeavors. We hear it's haunted this time of year, not only because of the Festival of the Lost. Want to know what this year's Halloween event will give you? We've got a list of the spookiest rewards.
