How to Get the Origin Story

The Origin Story is a Legendary variant of the Auto Rifle that players originally receive during the first mission of Destiny 2’s main storyline.

Getting the Origin Story won’t be an easy process, or well it might be. It really all depends on your luck of the draw when it comes to decoding engrams. See, in order to get the Origin Story Legendary Auto Rifle, you’re going to have to earn yourself some Vanguard Tactician Engrams, which can only be obtained by ranking up your Vanguard Rank in Destiny 2.

How to Upgrade Vanguard Rank

As we stated above, the only way to get the Origin Story is to unlock it via decrypting Vanguard Tactician Engrams. Now, these items are only obtained by ranking up your Vanguard Faction reputation, which can only be done by earning Vanguard Tactician Tokens. Luckily, these items are easily rewarded by simply completing Strikes in Destiny 2, so all you really need to do to level this Faction Reputation up is simply complete Strikes, and then take the Vanguard Tactician Tokens that you earn and turn them in to Commander Zavala in The Tower.
