Are you guys really looking for ways to get the Fourth Horseman in Destiny 2? If your answer is yes, you have come to the right place. The Fourth Horseman is an exotic shotgun which has been added in Destiny 2 along with a catalyst for this weapon.

The Fourth Horseman is a totally automatic shotgun that has the potential to deal high damage. To get this exotic weapon is quite easy, you all just need a bit of better luck on your side to acquire the catalyst in Destiny 2.

At the time of writing this guide, there are only two sources available which are known to drop the catalyst. However, this might change in the near future.  There are places in Destiny 2 called Seraph Tower Public Events or Legendary Lost Sectors where you can get the Fourth Horseman catalyst. It’s a random drop at the end of the activity when you open the chest.

Notably, the drop rate is unknown but given it’s tied to a seasonal event we suspect it’s a little bit higher than most catalysts. This is said to be the only way to get it, so make sure to jump into this activity along with a few friends.

It is to be noted that, your prime aim is to keep the enemies at bay so they charge. If you managed to do so, it will produce orange orbs that can be thrown into an orb hovering over the activate plate. When you hit it six times, it will give you some progress towards finishing this event.

Master working this weapon provides Destiny 2 users with other rounds and faster reload time making an already deadly weapon even more impactful. If this gun becomes a new DPS weapon we suspect the catalyst will be a big requirement for a lot of endgame activities.

Since, you are required to kill foes with this exotic gun, running either Escalation Protocol or the Blind Well is highly recommended.

Destiny 2 Zavala Office: How and where to find the hidden vault

In order to begin the quest, you will have to head toward the tower and speak to the Vanguard. Zavala will advise you of the weapon’s return and point you in the direction of his hidden vault. To which, you can easily make your way through the various walkways on its lower levels.

What tricky part in Destiny 2 is to discover the vault under the stairs. In order to save your time, we have got you covered the exact way to the vault from entering the tower.

Once you have managed to find the box that must have your precious shotgun is empty, you will have to return to Zavala telling him the bad news. He will then hum and haw before sending you on a trip to Mars to talk to Ana Bray, as she might know the person responsible for the Fourth Horseman’s disappearance.

Battle Cabal or take part in public events for Ana

On Mars, do not forget to ask Ana about her rogue shotgun. Ana will tell you that you required to recover some data, which means, you will have to kill some stuff. Twas ever thus. This specific step asks players to defeat Cabal and participate in public events.

The easiest and fastest way to do this is to stay in the initial area and finish the Escalation Protocol levels for 10 per cent each while awaiting the Cabal Public Event in the back for 20 per cent.

When you have finished, speak to Ana again and then she will tell you to accumulate Heist Data, which entails killing Cabal Psions and opening Cabal Chests. In order to get it done as soon as possible, you need to head to the Ma’adim Subterrane Lost Sector in Glacial Drift on Mars. It must take you three solo runs earning enough data to progress.

Once you have managed to gather the data, Ana will point you in the direction of Benedict 99-40 in the Tower.

Complete patrols or public events on the EDZ

Now, the time has come to move back to the Tower and talk to Benedict 99-40. It is Benedict, it will as you to visit the EDZ and mop up. As this ties into your weekly powerful engram bounties, consider coupling this quest step with your attempts at the Seraph Tower in the EDZ alongside whatever Rasputin Bounties are available to maximise your Destiny 2 Warmind Bit grind.

It must take three-to-four successful Seraph Tower events to clear this, depending on what patrols you are able to pick up in the vicinity. After completing enough Seraph Towers, you will have head back to Benedict asking for the next step.

Lost and Found: Complete the Destiny 2 Quarry Legendary Lost Sector

For Legendary Lost Sectors, the recommended power level is 1,000 and you are required to bring Unstoppable, Anti-Barrier, and Overload modded weapons.  It is to be noted that you might have to wait a little bit to complete this step as one Legendary Lost Sector is available per day and they rotate in the following order: Scavenger’s Den, Skydock IV, The Quarry.

Once you have managed to get the exotic shotgun, the Fourth Horseman’s catalyst is also available. In order to unlock it, you must complete Legendary Lost Sectors or Seraph Towers. After unlocking the catalyst, then kill hordes of enemies with the gun to activate it. The result is an additional round in your magazine and a faster reload speed increasing its ability to annihilate enemies even more effectively.
