Destiny 2 Buried Bloodline Catalyst Guide

updated December 27, 2023


Buried Bloodline is an Exotic sidearm with potent bonuses designed for Void builds in both PvE and PvP, including an included Catalyst that further augments its already potency.

As with previous Exotic weapons found in Dungeons and Raids, this one will drop randomly from a Dungeon’s final boss. To increase their odds of unlocking it more often by completing Triumphs associated with this particular Dungeon.

1. Collect Hefnd’s Bones

Destiny 2’s Warlord’s Ruin Dungeon requires players to put in some work before using its Buried Bloodline Exotic sidearm in PvE combat, much like any Exotic sidearm would require them. Players must collect all three Catalysts necessary to unlock it by completing “In the Shadow of the Mountain” quest and its three secret puzzles before they can use this Season of Wish weapon in battle royale mode.

At the very start of their adventure, players can access one of three secret catalyst objectives. Once players escape prison and slide down a broken bridge that leads to Chimaera bombardment, a door hugging left-wall will appear nearby and hold one Hefnd Bone inside of it.

After defeating the first boss and reaching the room with all of the trap chests, players will uncover another secret catalyst objective – Hefnd Bone can be found under snowy room with Scorn. Players can reach this Hefnd Bone after the firefight by sliding through a crack in the wall and climbing up into a cave. Additionally, it can be found immediately following it in a room filled with traps – just after. Once all 10 Ahamkara Bones have been collected, players will unlock the Buried Bloodline Exotic and gain its Catalyst; upon doing so, players will also be awarded with some fascinating lore and Triumph that increases the drop chance on this Exotic.

2. Collect Dark Ether Tincture

Warlord’s Ruin’s Buried Bloodline Exotic sidearm is an invaluable asset to Void builds in both PvE and PvP, offering unique two shot kill augmentation along with added fire power for any Guardian class. However, unlike most dungeon exotic weapons this one requires an exclusive Catalyst in order to unlock its full potential.

To acquire this rare weapon, players must first complete each encounter in the Dungeon on Master difficulty and defeat its final boss, an enormous skeleton with glowing bones and an unusual smile. After this victory is accomplished, they will receive the Buried Bloodline catalyst, but to enable its full capabilities they will need to solve three puzzles related to Taken Totem mechanic introduced at the dungeon’s start room and correctly read three Taken Totem puzzles correctly before activating this rare weapon’s benefits.

One of the puzzles players encounter in this dungeon lies within a series of prison cells they find themselves locked into; others can be found throughout; but one of the hardest puzzles can be found at the end of a platforming section where there’s a Taken Blight floating between snowy mountains – to solve this challenge, players must first read all torches surrounding this Taken Blight before extinguishing them sequentially within 30 seconds to solve this particular challenge.

Buried Bloodline’s second puzzle involves an unfamiliar machine. Once activated, this mechanism activates its unique ability to track enemies and grant Devour upon landing multiple rapid final blows – making this mechanism much simpler to understand than previous ones.

3. Collect Blighted Wishing Glass

The Buried Bloodline Exotic sidearm is an invaluable addition to any Void build, providing two-shot kill augmentation in both PvE and PvP environments. However, its power can be significantly amplified when equipped with its respective Catalyst that boosts its abilities.

To gain access to the Catalyst, players must complete Warlord’s Ruin dungeon – this activity involves solving puzzles and beating a final boss battle – or increase their odds by completing specific Triumphs associated with Hefnd’s Revenge.

As previously discussed, the initial step involves finding 10 Ahamkara Bones scattered throughout the dungeon and collecting them by interacting with objects inside it and eliminating enemies. Guardians can collect them by killing enemies and collecting these items by manipulating various objects within it.

After collecting these items, the next step will require players to travel back into the mountains. Here, they must navigate a prison maze before arriving at a gate where there is a Taken Blight that, when shot with Buried Bloodline, grants their fireteam an Imminent Wish buff that ignites three torches that correspond with light totems around it; once lit, a device in the center activates and unlocks their catalyst.

After unlocking the catalyst, players will arrive at a mountainous spire location with stone doors spread around it and a Taken Blight in its center. When this Taken Blight appears, it becomes invulnerable for a short while; Guardians should then stand on Totems that correspond with lit torches in order to breach and destroy it before the spire opens and the Catalyst and weapon are awarded as rewards.

4. Collect Taken Blight

After collecting Hefnd’s Bones and Dark Ether Tincture, Guardians can unlock Buried Bloodline’s third and final exotic catalyst in Warlord’s Ruin through various puzzles found around Warlord’s Ruin. One such puzzle can be found outside of prison cells players find themselves locked into; shooting Taken Blight with Buried Bloodline grants the fireteam an Imminent Wish buff that activates devices around the room corresponding to darkness totems; light three of these totems sequentially and the weapon’s Catalyst will appear.

Next is a puzzle which places players inside an enormous jump room with parkour and doorways, housing the final blight located in one of the doorways on the left-hand side. Shooting it with Buried Bloodline will release several torches around the room that correspond to darkness totems located across a wide area on rocks and pillars – lighting these one by one within the 30-second timer will activate Buried Bloodline’s final Catalyst Catalyst!

Once players collect all three Catalysts, they’ll be able to launch a secret boss fight with Primeval Thressia in the Cairn Chamber location. She’ll enter an invulnerability phase; however, players can clear her shield using light-based attacks that trigger when aligned with any one of six torches around the room.

Once defeated, you will unlock the Buried Bloodline Catalyst for use in PvP and Trials of Osiris; its 52 precision damage up to 50 meters gives this sidearm an additional chance at taking down enemies with its 52 precision damage up to 50 meters away. Furthermore, two unique perk systems exist: Hungering Quarrel uses tracking bolts that drain health from targets while Violent Reanimation grants Devour upon each rapid final blow fired.

5. Collect Catalyst

Buried Bloodline Exotic sidearms are excellent weapons for Void builds in both PvP and PvE, but what really sets this gun apart from its peers is its Catalyst. This component enhances its perks to include Hungering Quarel which fires tracking bolts that leech health on kills, and Violent Reanimation which awards Devour every time someone receives a fatal blow.

To secure the Buried Bloodline Catalyst, players must solve three puzzles located throughout Warlord’s Ruin. The first one involves shooting Taken Blight using Buried Bloodline shots – when shot this way it activates an Imminent Wish buff and lights five darkness totems that correspond with five prison cell lights-up torches that correspond with it in sequence – to trigger an Imminent Wish buff and light five darkness totems around it; once lit they will activate and unlock its device and release its Buried Bloodline Catalyst.

Players will enter a spire location with stone doors scattered throughout and a Taken Blight in the center, and shoot it with Buried Bloodline to trigger Imminent Wish and activate its device along with three torches that must be lit according to their positions in prisoner cells left to right from left to right. Once this device has been activated correctly, a DPS phase begins that leads to battle against Primeval Thressia; once won, a chest on the left holds the Buried Bloodline Catalyst!

Destiny 2’s Buried Bloodline Exotic makes Warlord’s Ruin an essential must-play. Its incredible benefits and catalyst make it worth pursuing, especially as Devour complements it so perfectly. However, unlike some weapons found elsewhere, this exotic can only be obtained once every week by clearing its respective dungeon on Legend difficulty – unless farmed repeatedly through subsequent runs!
