Destiny 2 – How to get the MIDA Multi-Tool Exotic scout rifle

1 min read

MIDA (3)

If you were ever in the market for a Jack of all trades gun in Destiny 1, then the MIDA Multi-Tool was a gift from the heavens. A scout rifle that was capable of tremendous damage in the right hands, ol’ MIDA was a mainstay in PVP and a reliable backup in PVE scenarios. In Destiny 2, mighty MIDA (Mooooo) is back with a fresh coat of paint.

Naturally, you want it. Here’s how.

Some spoilers possibly below, so before you start this quest make certain that you’ve dinged level 20 and have finished the main campaign. Steps after that are:

  • All EDZ story missions must be complete after the main campaign
  • Devrim Kay will reward you with the MIDA Mini-Tool
  • Vist Banshee-44 at the Tower to get the Sight, Shoot, Repeat quest
  • With a scout rifle equipped, get 50 precision kills, as well as 25 kills without reloading
  • Return to Banshee-44 to get the Under the Hood quest
  • Now you’ll need to dismantle five rare (blue) or Legendary (Purple) scout rifles
  • Return to Banshee-44 to get the Fall Will Kill You quest
  • Get 50 kills with an SMG while airborne
  • Return to Banshee-44 one more time to pick up your brand spankin’ new MIDA Multi-Tool

Destiny 2’s MIDA doesn’t stray too far from the original. It’s a sharpshooter’s wet dream, able to land headshots with perfect accuracy and perk your movement speed  up while giving you a more detailed radar. In the hands of someone who enjoys killing from afar, the MIDA Multi-Tool is deadly. Here’s a full list of its perks:

  • Kinetic Damage – This weapon causes kinetic damage.
  • Soft Ballistics – Less recoil.
  • CQB Ballistics – Greatly reduced recoil.
  • Smart Drift Control – Predictable and controllable recoil.
  • Third Eye – Radar stays active while aiming down this weapon’s sights.
  • Lightweight – When held, this weapon grants +2 character Agility.
  • Quickdraw – This weapon can be drawn unbelievably fast.
  • Field Scout – Increases carried Ammo capacity.
  • MIDA Multi-Tool – This weapon boosts move speed and fires on a hair trigger.

Bring on the Crucible.

    What I love about these articles is that by the time I get round to playing Destiny (bit of an if/when scenario), I’ll have forgotten all this.
    So it’ll be fresh and spoiler free.
