The Mountaintop grenade launcher is undoubtedly one of the most successful weapons in Destiny 2. If you want to get Mountaintop, you are required to have some specific playstyle. Courtesy to Bungie, who has compromised the requirement and made it an attainable weapon for those who want to acquire Mountaintop in Destiny 2.
How To Begin The Mountaintop Quest?
Similar to Destiny 2’s other weapons, you need to choose a quest from Shaxx. The Mountaintop Quest, which is termed “The Ascent” required you to hit the Glory Rank of Brave requiring merely 200 Glory points. This is said to be the easiest part of the quest.
The next part of The Ascent asking you to complete a Triumph called “In Pursuit of Honor.” In order to complete the Triumph, you must go into the Crucible and earn 750 grenade launcher kills. Besides this, you will also need 75 double kills and 25 Calculated Trajectory Medals (triple kills). It is to be noted that playing in Banner or Competitive will provide you bonus progress, with kills in the former worth double and kills in the latter worth triple.
What To Do After Completing The Triumph?
After concluding the In Pursuit of Honor Triumph, it is time to move back into the Crucible, only this time, you need to achieve the Glory Rank of Fabled. Notably, reaching the Glory Rank of Fabled is also a part of “The Stuff of Myth” Triumph, which is an essential step in to get the Recluse submachine gun.
The Glory Rank of Fabled need to collect 2100 Glory points but it has become quite easier thanks to some Crucible changes brought about by Destiny 2’s Shadowkeep expansion. Even solo Destiny 2 players do not need to worry because there is a Freelance Survival playlist that has a maximum party size of one. Hitting Fabled has never been such an easy but it can still be a daunting task.
What Happens After Reaching Fabled?
After accumulating all your grenade launcher kills and reaching Fabled by achieving 2100 Glory points, you now need to move back to Shaxx at the Tower and turn in The Ascent quest. Once you reached there, he will offer you very own Mountaintop, which fires micro-missiles instead of grenades.
There are four main parts to this questline:
- First of Many – Reach Glory Rank Brave
- The Third Wave – Complete the Triumph, In Pursuit of Honor
- No Second Chances – Reach Glory Rank Fabled
- An Oath Broken – Speak with Lord Shaxx
