The new Shadowkeep expansion for Destiny 2 brings with it a whole slew of new cool weapons to collect. While it can be tempting to just go down the rabbit hole of completing the new, complex Exotic quests, you shouldn’t forget about the new Legendaries either, which are quite good this expansion. Here’s how to get the Essence of Rage item for the One Small Step Shotgun in Destiny 2.
How to Get Essence of Rage and One Small Step in Destiny 2
One Small Step is a Legendary Shotgun, and also one of the Essence weapons you can get in the Shadowkeep expansion. This means that you’ll first need to obtain an Essence item, complete the quest steps, then turn it in to the Lectern of Enchantment to get your reward.
Actually getting the Essence of Rage is the tricky part, as it seems to have one of the lowest drop rates when compared to the rest of the Essence items in the game. At the time of writing, it looks like the Essence of Rage has the best chance of dropping if you’re farming Nightmare Hunts.
After completing the main story campaign in Shadowkeep, you’ll be able to take on the Nightmare Hunts at Adept difficulty for extra rewards. You’ll also have a chance of obtaining the Essence of Rage for completing these, so it simply becomes a matter of farming Nightmare Hunts and getting lucky enough to get it to drop.
Once you have the Essence of Rage, all you have to do is fulfill the requirements to get the One Small Step Shotgun.
Destiny 2 Essence of Rage Quest Steps
The quest steps for the Essence of Rage are pretty straightforward, as listed below:
- 120 Super kills
- Obtain the Fangs of Shun’Gath
The Fangs of Shun’Gath can be obtained in the World’s Grave area in the Moon. Once you’ve fulfilled all the requirements, bring it back to the Lectern of Enchantment to receive your Shotgun as a reward.
As always, if you’re not a fan of the rolls and perks you got on your Shotgun, you can purchase the Essence of Rage again from the Lectern of Enchantment for one Phantasmal Core. You’ll have to redo the quest steps, but you’ll have a chance at getting a better roll.
To sum things up, here’s how to get the Essence of Rage and One Small Step Shotgun in Destiny 2:
- Farm for the Essence of Rage through Nightmare Hunts.
- Complete the Essence of Rage quest steps.
- Turn it in to the Lectern of Enchantment to get your Shotgun.
