One of the best ways to increase your Power level in Destiny 2 is to get new Exotic gear and weapons. Whether you’re looking to get more armor, weapons, or just any kind of Exotic gear to push your Power level up, there are plenty of ways to do this. In fact, in this article we’ll show you how to get the Rat King Exotic Hand Cannon in Destiny 2, which is a very effective weapon at close to medium range. Not only will getting this weapon add to your arsenal, but when equipped it will also help increase your Power level, making you stronger for end-game content.

How to Get the Rat King Exotic Hand Cannon

The first step to getting the Rat King Exotic Hand Cannon is to complete the main storyline in Destiny 2. Once you’ve completed this storyline, you’ll unlock a series of quests throughout the game’s different worlds, that will open up doors for you to earn Exotic weapons like the Rat King.

We’d really suggest waiting until you reach at least Power 265, as there is no real point to getting any Exotic weapons until this point, as it will only make your grind to reach the maximum Power level of 300 that much harder.

Enemy of my Enemy

Once you’ve completed the main storyline, make your way over to Titan and complete the questline Enemy of my Enemy. This is a multi-mission questline that isn’t very difficult to complete, but once you’ve done you’ll receive a Kinetic Weapon item that tells you to complete three requirements, but things are a little vague at first.

Rat King’s Crew

In order to complete the Rat King’s Crew item, and charge it up, you’re going to need to complete three requirements, which we’ve listed below.

  • First, you’ll need to complete 3 Patrols.
  • Then you’ll have to complete 2 Public Events.
  • Once that is done, you’ll have to complete 2 Crucible Matches.

Completing the Patrols is very easy, as you can hit them up on any of the planets in the game. The public events are going to be pretty easy as well, as you can complete regular old public events in the game, so they won’t have to be Heroic. Crucible is going to be pretty easy as well, as you can just complete any Crucible type events.

The final step in the Rat King’s Crew questline is to complete the Nightfall strike, and you’ll have to finish it with five minutes or more remaining on the clock. This might be tough for lower level players, so you should definitely wait until you’re much stronger to take on this part of the quest.
