How to Get Python Ritual Weapon in Destiny 2

by Nicholas Barth

Destiny 2 players have been injected with an infusion of new weapons for them to acquire and use in their battles with the arrival of Season of Dawn. Some of these items are ritual weapons that provide unique characteristics and would be great additions to the inventory of any Guardian. One of these new ritual weapons is the Python shotgun that is inspired by the Gambit game mode. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know to get the Python shotgun covered.

Players will first need to visit the Drifter in the Tower and grab the Get Closer quest. This Get Closer quest tasks players with getting 500 shotgun final blows, 150 shotgun close-range final blows, and reaching the Heroic Infamy Rank in Gambit. Once you have completed these objectives, revisit the Drifter, and you will receive the Python for your inventory. You will then have collected one of the three new ritual weapons to be added to the popular title in Season of Dawn.

This particular ritual weapon from Gambit comes with the perks of Aggressive Frame and Shield Disorient. 

You will likely be seeing Guardians running around with the Python and testing out everything the new Season of Dawn ritual weapon has to offer for those who bring it into battles.
