Destiny 2: How to start the Birds of Prey Exotic quest

Today’s update to Destiny: Beyond Light brings a new quest, not that you would know it as Bungie have not signposted it all, not a map marker, not a message on the map screen, nothing. Here’s how you can get going.

  1. Head over to Crow on the Tangled Shore, he has the quest which is called “Bird of Prey. “The Light calls from across vast distances, beckoning you to the reservoir in the EDZ,” reads the description, “Heed the call.”
  2. Well that seems quite simple doesn’t it? Over to the map screen and on to the EDZ to find the mission start icon.. except it is not there. Because reasons, Bungie have decided to hide the mission start with no indication of where it could be, which is why you are reading this. So, head over to the EDZ and spawn in at the map location in Trostland, nearest Devrim Kay.
  3. From there you want to head towards the building to the left of the front of the church, it has the sign “ABS Kastner” above the doorway.
  4. Go up to the second floor and you will see a wooden fireplace which has been bricked up. You must now use Hawkmoon, the gun you received from a previous Exotic quest from Cdow, to shoot the bricks and open up a passageway.
  5. Step inside, and voila, you can start the main mission! The next step has you hunting for Emissaries through a maze of tunnels, and – yes – some jumping puzzles. Have fun!
