Destiny: The Taken King – The Chaperone Exotic shotgun guide

1 min read


A new year, for new guns! By now, you’re most likely considering turfing your favourite legendaries and exotics in Destiny, thanks to the fact that they’re quickly being outclassed by those filthy greens on the battlefield. Fair enough.

But there’s also a whole new world of Exotic weapons waiting to be discovered. Newer, deadlier gear that’ll get the blood-pumping to your crotch-NRA. Here’s how to get your hands on the Chaperone, a new Exotic shotgun that’ll have you tossing your Invective away quicker than a terrible Christmas gift.

    Does the last hit on the shield brothers have to be with a shotgun or how should I understand “kill the shield brothers with a shotgun” ?
