Clever Guardians Solve A Two-Year-Old Warmind Puzzle Right Before Rasputin Returns

Just under two years ago, in May 2018, Bungie released Warmind for Destiny 2. This was the second DLC to come to the game, and was the last of the smaller content packages that the developer would ever release for the series. It was co-developed by Vicarious Visions, which was part of the help Bungie received as part of Activision Blizzard. The DLC had a puzzle, one which led to loot in the real world, but it was never fully solved until now.

Just under two years ago, in May 2018, Bungie released Warmind for Destiny 2. This was the second DLC to come to the game, and was the last of the smaller content packages that the developer would ever release for the series. It was co-developed by Vicarious Visions, which was part of the help Bungie received as part of Activision Blizzard. The DLC had a puzzle, one which led to loot in the real world, but it was never fully solved until now.

The Puzzle

Warmind is still one of my favourite DLCs for Destiny 2, better than a few of the seasons we’ve had. It brought a lot to the table, including masses of extra content that was a pleasure to work through, and an ARG. This ARG led to some treasure in the real world, but it was found before the puzzle was ever solved.

There was a final word in the three required to solve the puzzle, but the original Guardians who solved it brute forced the solution. They never actually solved the final riddle. This is interesting because of how that solution has finally been found, indicating that Vicarious Visions clearly put a lot of walls in front of Guardians before they had the ability to solve the puzzle. We Guadians are crafty though.

The Solution

In order to solve the puzzle, you need to have Sleeper Simulant. There’s a huge quest to complete before you earn this weapon, and that’s the time-consuming part that Vicarious Visions were counting on to delay Guardians. Two Guardians have now solved the puzzle, check out their solution below.

This warning sign has long been thought to be part of the Rasputin puzzle, but now one has solved it until now. The diamond is the exact same shape as Sleeper Simulant’s reticule, and the above is how we were supposed to find the solution.

It’s impressive that even a two-year-old puzzle can hold relevance in Destiny 2 today. With Season of the Worthy bringing the focus back to Rasputin, I’ve found myself exploring the contents of Warmind in the vague hope of getting more information about what’s coming. Hopefully we’ll get a season that does the best DLC for Destiny 2 justice when it starts next week.

I'm an avid Destiny 2 fan and player. I fell in love with Destiny 1 during the early alpha and have been hooked by the universe ever since. I really enjoy playing with other Guardians, speculating about the lore, and writing about as much of the Destiny universe as I can.
