The quest is challenging but you can do it with the help of this guide. We have covered all points for you to get the Destiny 2 Izanagi’s Burden.
The Mysterious Box Quest
The beginning of your journey will be from finding the Mysterious Box. It is the easiest part.
The Sunken Isles landing zone on the EDZ is your place to start. Once you come in go to the left with the path and turn into the tunnel at left. Keep going to reach the end and turn right. You will find a glowing orange door there at the right. Go inside and follow it towards the Smidur’s Cavern.
After reaching there follow the path straight and ignore the natural curve of the right path. Look over the edge and you will find a big rock platform. Jump on the leftmost one and it will take you to a small carven. At the end of this carven, finally, you will get your mysterious box. Add the box to your inventory.
The Mysterious Box quest has a total of four steps.
- Fishhook Lock opened
- Butterfly Lock opened
- Hand Lock opened
- Black Armory Lock opened
The Butterfly, Fishhook, and Hand Keys
Once you get the mysterious box, now you will need a key to open it. The first three keys are easy to get but the last one is tricky and challenging for getting the rifle.
To get these keys you must clear the Forges with a buff called Maximum Temper active. You can activate this by killing two small droids in between round one and two. If you are not fast enough, they will disappear so be quick. After max temper, finish the forges and open the boxes to get the keys.
The Butterfly Key
You will get this at Izanami Forge. To get this you have to shoot them both droids between waves 1 and 2 above the island. Ensure you have a good weapon like Scout or a Sniper to take them out. After destroying both the drones, you must complete the activity and you will get a Black Armory Key. Use it to unlock the Butterfly Lock.
The Fishhook Key
To open this, you will need a Black Armor Key. It is available in the Volundr Forge. Shoot out the droids to get this. The first droid will arrive when you look out of the back of the forge, turn around and you will the second droid flying inside the cave. Snipper will be your best equipment here to shoot them. After that just play the Forge out and you will get the key at the end of the activity.
The Hand Key
You will find the Hand key in the Gofannon Forge. For this, droids will be very close. One will be on the left side just above the door and the other one will be at the top of the wreckage. Kill them and finish the activity to get your black Armory Key.
Ponce, you get all three keys, go to your inventory. Hover over the first key and use it to insert it into the mysterious box. Repeat this with the remaining keys as well.
Black Armoury Key
You got all the easy ones. Now it’s time to get the toughest one the Black Armoury Key. You have to go through the same max temper shenanigans but with a different plan and preparation.
To begin this part of the questline, you will require all 3 keys of the earlier step. After that Speak to Ada-1 and she will present you a Black Armory Key Mold.
At this stage, you will need to collect a bunch of things to forge the key. We have listed down the process for you:
Collect Watcher Lenses from Leviathan
Collect a total of 24 Watcher Lenses from the Watchers in the Leviathan Raid. To find them go to the Leviathan and run forward. Drop down and under the bridge and interact with the levers in a specific pattern. With this, you will open the path forward. Be quick as you cannot afford to do any mistake there. After doing it successfully you will find ‘The way is open… ‘ in the bottom left-hand corner.
Jumps on the pipe. Turn on the fan. Jump up, go around and open the door and you will find the Watchers there. Keep killing them till you don’t achieve your target.
Collect Glimmering Amethyst
In this step, you need to collect 200 Glimmering Amethysts. To get this you have to do Supply Chests, Public Event chests, and Strike Chests. You can run the Lake of Shadows quest for 10 times. It is a quick and easy way of collecting 200 Glimmering Amethyst. You can get 5 from Public events and 10 from Heroic Public event. You have an option to run a strike, but it takes more time.
Get the Final Key
Now head back to the Bergusia Forge and ge max temper. After entering the forge, check your right and straight on. Two small drones will spawn, so make sure you destroy them. Once they are destroyed, complete the forge and the Black Armory Key will drop.
Now you will be able to open the mysterious box with this.
Crafting the Izanagi's Burden
Use the Black Armoury Key and you will find “A Mysterious Decryption Device”. Bring this to Ada-1 in the tower and she will assign you a list of tasks with rewards and Crafting Izanagi’s Burden. Complete the tasks. Go back to the Tower and speak to Ada-1 and she’ll hand over Izanagi’s Burden.
Have fun with your Izanagi’s burden. Happy Playing! It is great for PVP too.
