Here's how to get the hidden Sleeper Simulant gun in Destiny


No longer a mystery

Yesterday, Destiny's quest to unlock the Sleeper Simulant Exotic weapon was unveiled -- and within 24 hours time, the entire mystery has been solved. Here's what you need to do to unlock it.

As previously mentioned, you need to complete the quest The First Firewall on Earth (which may not be available for play on any given day). Then, input the following codes into the transceiver. From there you'll get a quest to complete Cayde's Stash in four minutes, which grants you a Fusion Core for the Sleeper Stimulant. Just run through the entire mission with speed modifiers equipped and nuke the three witches at the end. Now, you need to complete five more actions.

Right off the bat, you can dismantle a heavy weapon (some are reporting that it needs to be a legendary or above -- I had success with a Year One Exotic), and complete The Archive mission on Venus (which can be done on normal, by the way). Then, you'll need to complete a Defend the Warsat mission on Earth, Mars, and the Moon -- that's one for each planet. Use this site as a resource to to check for Warsat events, and try to constantly go back and forth between zones that host them. If a timer is over six minutes late, head to the next zone.

Next, head back to Banshee at the Tower (the Gunsmith), and then complete the Light 280 specific SABER Strike. From there you'll net the frame, and the gun itself. It's a 290 fusion rifle that sits in the heavy slot, and has bullets that bounce off the walls. Note that if you're turning in the Warsat stage of the quest to Banshee today, you may need to wait until tomorrow to get the final Strike quest.

As for its efficacy, the sound effects are pretty cool, but I'm stashing it in the vault as there are much better Exotics out there. This entire questline is disappointing actually, as it's 100% a retread through existing areas and fights, just with slightly different waves for the first two bits.
