Destiny 2 - How to get MIDA Multi-Tool Exotic Scout Rifle

Posted in destiny

The MIDA Multi-Tool is a classic exotic from the original Destiny game that makes a comeback in Destiny 2. In this guide you'll find all the necessary quest steps to earn this exotic weapon for free, no luck involved.

Why is MIDA worth getting? Well, it's two standout perks mean that whilst using MIDA you have increased movement speed and a constant radar that never disappears, even when aiming down sights. This is vital for most Raid encounters and even more so in the Crucible where players attempt to outflank you.

Furthermore, this quest will result in both the Multi-Tool and Mini-Tool, an SMG that works in harmony with the exotic for even greater bonus perks.

Ok, here are the steps for claiming this exotic weapon...

Step by Step

1. Complete the story

Before venturing off to start the MIDA exotic quest you must have completed ALL the story missions and have reached Level 20. Other exotic quests follow a similar pattern and the MIDA quest is no exception to the rule either.

2. Start the "Enhance" quest on Earth

Enhance quest

The Enhance quest appears in the Trostland area of the EDZ patrol zone. The quest description reads:

"Initial Consultation. Devrim has a strange tale to tell of the Fallen. Get in touch with him and learn more"

Players should note that the recommended Power Level for this quest is 260. Accept the quest and complete all objectives, eventually resulting in a trip back to meet Devrim Kay. As a reward for your troubles, he gives you the Legendary Submachine Gun called MIDA Mini-Tool.

As part of this quest, you also receive a collectible item that only Banshee (the gunsmith) understands.

3. Complete "Sight, Shoot, Repeat" quest step

Sight, Shoot, Repeat - quest step

Return to the Tower and pay a visit to Banshee the gunsmith. He has a new quest for you called "Sight, Shoot, Repeat". The description for this quest reads:

MIDA, MIDA. Old name. Almost as old as me. Lost a bunch of my schematics when the Tower went down. Could recreate one for you. If that's the kind of thing you're in to".

This quest step has multiple objectives that are:

  • Eliminate enemies with precision shots (x 50)
  • Eliminate enemies without reloading (x 25)

Note, you must kill three enemies without reloading for objective two.

4. Complete "Under the Hood" quest step

Under the Hood - quest step

Pay another visit to Banshee and accept the quest "Under the Hood". The new objective changes to:

  • Dismantle valuable scout rifles (x 5)

These can either be Rare or Legendary scout rifles so hopefully you haven't dismantled them all previously trying to get Gunsmith Materials for faction packages! If in doubt, get some materials together and buy Scout Rifles from one of the faction vendors or the gunsmith himself.

5. Complete "The Fall Will Kill You" quest step

The Fall Will Kill You - quest step

Again, return to Banshee for the next quest step to refresh. This time, the quest changes to "The Fall Will Kill You" which has the following description:

"The MIDA series features several unconventional features. Banshee wants you to get kills with a Submachine Gun while airborne."

The only objective for this quest is:

  • Airborne SMG kills (x 50)

This is the perfect excuse to use the MIDA Mini-Tool and test it out.

6. Claim the MIDA exotic

MIDA exotic rewarded

That's it, job done! The MIDA Multi-Tool exotic is now waiting for you from Banshee. Just head back to the Tower and claim the weapon. The Power Level of the weapon will closely follow your existing PL, with a 5-10% increase commonplace.
