How to Get Loaded Question in Destiny 2

Loaded Question is an Arc High-Impact Fusion Rifle that’s been out of the loot pool for quite some time. And its potential return has led to quite a bit of celebrating for Fusion Rifle fans and some grumblings from others who think there are quite enough Fusion Rifles with Reservoir Burst.

Either way, it’s hard to deny that Loaded Question is a damn good gun in PvE.

Previously, you could only get this Fusion Rifle through the Loaded Question quest you picked up from Zavala. But now, there’s a whole new way Guardians can get this gun.

And that’s through Nightfalls in Season 21. Yep, Loaded Question is going to our Exclusive Nightfall weapon! Which means it’s likely to get some touchups (probably for the better) before we can get our hands on it.

If you’ve never done Nightfall, don’t worry. Your best bet to grab Loaded Question is to reassure you get a score above 100,000. The higher the difficulty, the easier it is to do this.

Be sure to bring lots of anti-Champion mods or guns, as you don’t want to always depend on your Fire Team to deal with these high-point menaces. Be mindful of the buffs and debuffs of the Nightfall you’re tackling as well. And with luck, Loaded Question will drop! If it doesn’t, keep trying. Destiny 2 is all about RNG and the grind.

Loaded Question isn’t the only new weapon coming back in Season 21. Check out another blast from the past here: How to Get Randy’s Throwing Knife in Destiny 2.
