Sleeper Simulant is an exotic fusion rifle that no one has so far. It is a weapon that is only obtain by completing a quest chain in Destiny: The Taken King. How to trigger that quest chain was on everybody’s minds. We knew for a fact that it has to do something with Rasputin-an AI warmind–and there is a long series of quests you have to complete before you actually get the weapon.
We also knew that it was the gunsmith that gave the quest and it proved to be true when someone on Reddit received a legendary item which in-turn prompted the Gunsmith to give him a quest called ‘The First Firewall’.
The exotic quest is called Midnight Exigent and is most definitely results in The Sleeper Simulant weapon.
So there you go, time to grind patrol enemies and hope for a drop that gets you this quest. If you haven’t gotten the expansion yet make sure to read our review which explains why it’s time to jump in to Destiny: The Taken King.
We will keep you updated once we hear more on this. Stay tuned.
Update: Bungie had unlocked the first firewall quest and here’s the way to get the gun. The quest has disappeared and we do not know when it will be live again. They did say that they will be periodically making the quest live.
