Destiny: Rise of Iron Has a Mysterious ARG Puzzle That Fans Are Trying to Solve

Destiny, Rise of Iron Gjallahorn

What a tangled web we weave.

Just when you thought that you’ve seen everything in Destiny: Rise of Iron, Bungie went ahead and threw players another loop. There is a new puzzle being presented to players, and it’s not being confined to the companies latest expansion for their hit shooter. Instead, players can head over to this site, and if they’re logged into their Bungie account with either their PSN or Xbox Live information they will be given a Node and several pieces of unprocessed information.

Once all of the information has loaded in, you’re then shown this message at the bottom in bold letters:

Local resources Insufficient to process data. Increase resources by combining processes with 7 other nodes, per Forwarding Protocol. 

It’s not entirely clear what this information is for, but there are plenty of members on over on Reddit currently deciphering the mountain of code. Apparently this is all linked to the Owl Sector event that preceded the launch of Rise of Iron a couple of weeks ago. Information is being collected using this form (which is complete with instructions to help you provide the proper information)

As of the time of writing, a solution has not been found to the overall puzzle, but there is progress being made as players figure out how to combine the different strings of information.

There’s a good chance that this may lead to that mysterious exotic scout rifle that players have been wondering about, but that’s just speculation at the moment. With this being round two, it will be interesting to see what Bungie comes up with next.
