Destiny 2 Jotunn: How to get Jotunn in Destiny 2

The Destiny 2 Jotunn Exotic is, to my knowledge, the only way to shoot an orb of fire out of a fist-mounted toaster in Destiny 2. It's the closest thing to a Mega Man blaster that Destiny's ever seen, and that alone is praiseworthy. Fortunately, you don't have to jump through too many hoops to acquire it. Unlike the Destiny 2 Mysterious Box quest that leads to Izanagi's Burden, Jotunn comes down to good old-fashioned RNG, and thanks to some drop rate tuning, it's easier to get than ever. 

You have a chance of receiving the Jotunn in addition to your Black Armory weapon each time you complete a bounty in Bergusia. It has to be a powerful gold bounty, however, meaning you only get two shots at Jotunn per character per week. And again, you have to complete it at the Bergusia Forge regardless of what the bounty actually says. You'll still need to go through all the calibrations elsewhere, but for the final step, head back to Bergusia. 

To access the Bergusia Forge, you'll need to unlock the other three Forges first. If you want to try for Jotunn on multiple characters each week, you'll need to clear the Forge questline on all of them. Which sucks, I know. Here's hoping you get Jotunn early. And it is quite a cool weapon. It certainly feels like an Exotic: unlike traditional bolt-firing fusion rifles, Jotunn shoots a single solar orb which really does feel straight out of Mega Man. It may not be the most efficient gun, but it is one of the flashiest, and it's great fun to use in PvE and PvP. If nothing else, it's worth owning, so be sure to complete your powerful Black Armory Forge bounties at Bergusia until you get it. 

Speaking of complicated Black Armory quests: here's how to finish the Destiny 2 Black Armory Mysterious Datapad quest.
