You're just 1.. 2.. 3 steps closer to getting that Savior Title.

Season of Dawn Ritual Weapons Guide

With Season 9 set to close on March 9th, many Guardians are scrambling to obtain the Destiny 2 Ritual Weapons that form three components of the Season of Dawn Badge: the Buzzard, the Komodo-4FR, and the Python Ritual Weapon. While these Masterwork-optional Ritual Weapons are not set to disappear anytime soon, Destiny 2 players have been rushing to procure them before the season’s end because of their contribution to the Season of Dawn Badge, one of the main elements of the highly sought-after Savior Title. And unlike these Ritual Weapons, the Dawn Seal Savior Title will in fact be inaccessible once Season 9 has concluded. Whatever your reason for wanting these weapons, though, this guide is here to help.

Buzzard – Legendary Kinetic Sidearm


How to Get the Buzzard

  • Speak to Zavala, Commander of the Vanguard, in the Tower.

    • 400 kills with a Sidearm
    • 50 kills while airborne with a Sidearm
    • 10,000 points earned all while in a Vanguard Strike
  • Recommendations for efficiency:
    • Use a Solar Sidearm (best for Molten Glory Vanguard quest)
    • Only run the Nightfall Prestige Playlist to efficiently gain points
