The newest Destiny 2 season dropped yesterday, and with it came reissues of Reckoning weapons (which had long been sunset). A fan favorite, Spare Rations, also returns with new perks alongside its Taken counterpart. But the methods for getting these two guns are quite different, so let’s take a look at how, specifically, to target-farm Spare Rations in Destiny 2.

How to Farm Spare Rations in Destiny 2

To farm Spare Rations, you first need to acquire Spare Rations. A little paradoxical, I know, but the easiest method to get it quickly is to cross your fingers and Focus Deep Engrams at the Sonar Station in the H.E.L.M. using the bottom-most row, called “Reckoning Weapons,” until you get one.

Spare Rations can also be acquired from the new Fishing activity – all you need to do is catch a Legendary fish, then trade it with the Sonar Station in the H.E.L.M. for a chance at reprised Reckoning weapons, armor, and more.

Once you’ve acquired six weapons from either Season of the Deep (the Taken versions) or the reprised Reckoning weapons, you can focus-roll Spare Rations for four Deep Engrams a pop. This is a little expensive, but it’s worth doing if you’re chasing a specific roll.
