Destiny 2 Mysterious Box: How to obtain it and unlock it

0

The Black Armory has a mystery to solve...

Destiny 2 has a new mystery to solve thanks to the aptly named Myserious Box. Here’s how Annual Pass holders can obtain it and begin to unlock it.

How to get the Destiny 2 Mysterious Box

First, Guardians will have to progress through the Black Armory content to the point where they can access its first Forge found in the EDZ: the Volundr Forge. There you’ll find the Mysterious Box inside a cave.

There’s a ledge leading to the cave just underneath the broken bridge you’ll see as you enter the area. A video below from Arekkz shows you exactly where the Mysterious Box is.

Congratulations — you’ve now acquired the Mysterious Box, complete with four locks to unlock: Fishhook, Butterfly, Hand and Black Armory.

How to unlock the Mysterious Box’s Fishook lock

The Fishhook lock requires you to complete several steps — best to work as a Fireteam on this one.

  • Between rounds 1 and 2, you’ll need to shoot and destroy two Ghost-like objects that appear on opposite sides of the map. The objects are pretty far away, so a Sniper Rifle will work wonders.
  • Successfully complete the Forge as normal.
  • A Loot Cache will spawn behind the Forge’s regular rewards. It contains the Fishook key.

A video from Esoterickk shows how to unlock the Fishhook lock.

How to unlock the Mysterious Box’s Hand lock

The Hand lock is similar to the Fishhook lock. To open the Hand lock, you’ll need to shoot two specific objects at Nessus’ Gofannon Forge.

  • Between rounds 1 and 2, you’ll need to shoot and destroy two Ghost-like objects that appear on opposite sides of the map. The objects are pretty far away, so a Sniper Rifle will work wonders.
  • Successfully complete the Forge as normal.
  • A Loot Cache will spawn behind the Forge’s regular rewards. It contains the Hand key.

Once again, it’s Esoterickk to the rescue with a video that shows exactly how to obtain the Hand lock key.

How to unlock the Mysterious Box’s Butterfly lock

If you know how to unlock the previous two locks, you’ve probably got a good idea as to how the third will work. To open the Butterfly lock, you’ll need to shoot two specific objects at Nessus’ Izanami Forge.

  • Between rounds 1 and 2, you’ll need to shoot and destroy two Ghost-like objects that appear on opposite sides of the map. The objects are pretty far away, so a Sniper Rifle will work wonders.
  • Successfully complete the Forge as normal.
  • A Loot Cache will spawn behind the Forge’s regular rewards. It contains the Hand key.

Once again, it’s Esoterickk to the rescue with a video that shows exactly how to obtain the Hand lock key.

How to unlock the Mysterious Box’s Black Armory lock

This one’s not as easy as the other keys. Full steps are below:

  • First, collect the Black Armory key mold from Ada-1 at the Tower.
  • Watcher Lens: Harvest parts from every Watcher in the underbelly of the Leviathan. (Here’s how to get in if you’re not familiar with the steps.)
  • Glimmering Amethyst: Obtain concentrations from supply caches, public event chests and Strike chests.
  • Forge Black Armory Key: Head to the Bergusia Forge and shoot the drones to get “Maximum Temper” status. Complete the forge ignition to obtain the Black Armory Key.

Here’s a video to help with the last step — and keep in mind that the Bergusia Forge is best approached at 650 Light:

Once you’ve got the key, you can unlock the Mysterious Box and continue down the questline.

Destiny 2 is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
