The mystery surrounding Destiny’s lone exotic heavy fusion rifle, Sleeper Simulant is over. The final part of the quest is available today (10/8/15) to everyone that has kept up with its objectives.
Yesterday, everyone who had discovered all of the four legendary DVALIN fusion rifles and turned them into the Gunsmith had a mysterious mission called “The First Firewall” available to them on Earth. If you missed it, the mission will reappear at some point and you can read up on how to get caught up for when it does here.
Guardians that completed yesterday’s objectives were greeted with a new quest from the Gunsmith called “The Sleeper Stirs” which unlocks a new level 42 version of the strike, Fallen S.A.B.E.R. It’s already arguably one of the most difficult strikes in Destiny, so upping the level to two above the Guardian’s cap is a bit cruel on Bungie’s part. However, there is matchmaking for this so you don’t have to go at it alone. Still, try to bring two friends you trust just to be sure. If you’re still having trouble, check out our strategy guide for Fallen S.A.B.E.R which has tips and tricks for each phase of the strike. Generally speaking, try to equip any armor that protects you from Arc attacks (provided the light on it is still high) and try not to rush the Warsat portion, which tends to be the trickiest part of the strike for many people.
Once you complete the strike, all you have to do is simply return to the Gunsmith and voila, you a have a 290 Sleeper Simulant! Really not as hard as many people were expecting provided you can work your way through that level 42 Fallen S.A.B.E.R.
