Legend Of Acrius

First, get the “On The Comms” quest item by defeating Cabal enemies. It is a random drop. Once you get the item, it will appear in a slot under your Power weapons. Then, go to Nessus and defeat more Cabal to randomly get the “Red Legion Communications” item to drop. Once you get that item, the “On The Comms” item will change into a new item called “Destroyer Of Worlds”. The “Destroyer Of Worlds” item requires you to complete the Leviathan raid. After completing the raid, the “Destroyer Of Worlds” item will become a new item called the “Imperial Invitation”. Go back to the Tower and speak with Benedict 99-40, near Ikora and Hawthorne. Benedict 99-40 will send you on a modified version of “The Arms Dealer” strike that you must complete with more than 7 minutes remaining. It is a 300 power level strike that contains the Prism modifier (elements rotate and weapons with those elements are stronger) and Time Warp modifier (map contains hidden floating squares of light, which add 30 seconds to your timer when destroyed). After completing the strike, you will get the Acrius Legendary shotgun, which deals piercing damage that can hit more than one enemy at a time. However, it only contains one shell in its magazine and does not have many other traits. To upgrade the shotgun, you must complete more quests. After getting the Acrius Legendary shotgun, you will get another quest item called “Back To The Bazaar”. This quest requires you to go back to the Tower and speak with Benedict 99-40. He will give you a quest called “Cabal Killer”. To complete it, you must:

Kill 25 Cabal any way you like.
Kill 15 Cabal at close range.
Kill 10 Cabal without reloading.
You can do these quests multiple ways. It is recommended to play the beginning of the Leviathan raid again, go to the Trostland in the EDZ, or return to Nessus and do Cabal-related public events again. You can complete the last task, “Kill 10 Cabal without reloading,” using the Acrius Legendary shotgun, as long as Cabal are bunched up and you can hit them with the shotgun’s spread. After completing those tasks, return to Benedict 99-40 to get another quest called “His Highness’ Seal”. This quest requires you to play the raid again and “eliminate Bosses and complete the raid” to get Emperor Seals. You need 100 of them. After completing the “His Highness’ Seal” quest, the you will get the Legend Of Acrius Exotic shotgun. It has two bullets in its magazine and contains the following stats:

All Leviathan raid chests
Search the indicted locations in the Leviathan raid to find all nine secret chests. Raid chests contain Legendary and Exotic engrams and high Power loot. The Leviathan raid is not easy to navigate. The labyrinth is a series of under-tubes and chambers filled with secrets and security systems. To access more than half of the raid chests, you will need to find and destroy entire rooms filled with security turrets. If you do not destroy the turrets quick enough, they will gain invulnerability rings and you will have to wipe and try again. Each raid chest is associated with one of the Boss battles you complete as you finish the Leviathan raid. Once a Boss is defeated, you will earn their key that can then be used to open one of the chests. There are two types of raid chests —- hidden in secret areas, or locked behind ornate gold-trimmed security doors. To unlock the doors, you need to deactivate the security system.

Getting started – Unlocking the Underbelly: On the entrance bridge at the start of the raid, drop down to the lower level of the bridge and enter the room at the end. There are three pillars in this room with two levers on each pillar. Use the switches in the correct order to open a secret door. From left to right, press the switches in the following order: 1, 5, 3, 2, 4, 6. Go up the tower to the top. On the large battlefield platform, there is a dark area in the back with pipes. If you entered the switch code correctly, this area will be open. You can then access the underbelly of the ship. Enter the dark void to appear in a long sewer-like obstacle course. Jump to the fan at the end and follow the path to a locked door with a switch. Wait a few seconds for the prompt to appear, then press the switch to enter the next room.

Raid Chest 1 – Engine: To deactivate the security system in the following room, kill all four watcher turrets at the same time before they gain an invulnerable shield when they spot a Guardian. Sneak around to get into position, avoiding the red vision cones, and shoot them all in unison.

Raid Chest 2 – Ventilator: From the previous raid chest, continue through the room and drop down into the long maintenance tunnel with the spinning fan blades. Past the second fan, jump onto the raised platform on the left to find the Ventilator chest.

Raid Chest 3 – Pipeline: At the end of the fan tunnel, ride the wind up and turn left to go through the path that is lit in white light. Ignore the red passage for now. The white path leads to a red tunnel. Fall down and try not to die from the fall, then unlock the door with the switch panel. Down below is the locked security door to the right on the catwalks. Sneak around and destroy all the turrets in unison again to unlock the security door.

Raid Chest 4 – Conduit: Backtrack to the entrance of the room with the Pipleline chest and security turrets. Instead of going right, look left and jump into the wind generated by the fan to ride up. On top are more turrets (you may need to go up here to destroy all the Pipeline chest turrets in unison). Continue to the lit room that leads back to the top of the fan shaft. After returning to the hub with the two passages (one white, one red), go through the red passage. Go right and drop down to reach a tunnel with purple sludge. This is the shortcut path to the raid Boss. From this central passage, proceed into the circular tunnel on the opposite end and up. In another tunnel, turn around to the raised platform with the monitors, then go through the small door on the left in the area ahead with red light. This small passage leads up and into another security chamber after a long drop down a fan shaft, through another switch door. Sneak around and destroy all the turrets in unison to unlock the security door.

Raid Chest 5 – Irrigation: From the Conduit room, exit through the back door that leads to a room with a large metal grating fence, positioned diagonally in the room. At the top is a bright light —- jump above the bright light and land on the narrow pipes. If you slip, you will die. Sneak across to the opposite side on the pipes and drop down into an optional room. The Irrigation chest is to your right.

Raid Chest 6 – Drain: Return to the massively long chamber with the purple sludge that leads to the throne room. From the sludge drain, go left and into the deactivated fan shaft, using the metal ribs to climb up to the top. Then, go through the red hallway to find another fan shaft. Drop all the way down, press the button, and ride the fan all the way to the top of the shaft to return to the Pipeline room. In the Pipeline room, ride the fan up to the top, but instead of going right to backtrack, go left to find a hidden open pipe on the wall with bright red lights inside. In the tube, go left when you reach a fork and crouch through the bundles of pipes. Continue down this path, then turn left to find another hole you can drop down to reach “The Drain” section. Sneak around and destroy all the turrets in unison to unlock the security door.

Raid Chest 7 – Transfer: Return to the start of the raid, at the door you used the levers to open at the start of the sewer passage. Jump across the leaning platforms and ride the fan up. Instead of turning left at the top, go directly straight forward. Keep going up the ramps to reach the Transfer room. Sneak around and destroy all the turrets in unison to unlock the security door.

Raid Chest 8 – Armory: Backtrack a little and look for an axe-icon path in the back-left. It leads to a narrow path that requires you to crouch through. Keep following the signs to reach the Armory. Sneak around and destroy all the turrets in unison to unlock the armory key door in the back-left of the room.

Raid Chest 9 – Aqueduct: From the Armory, find the narrow passage in the corner. It leads to a locked door with a switch panel. Open it to re-enter the Transfer security area. Go left from the tiny passage exit and through the doorway marked with a bright red light. Jump through the platforms above, and when you reach the long hallway, go right instead of forward. After going up the ramps and back down, continue left and drop into the chamber with a huge spinning centrifuge ahead. To the left of that is a raised platform with the final secret raid chest.
