Getting the Year 3 Gjallarhorn in Rise of Iron detailed
So initially, to scan the Anomaly within Site 6. Start a Patrol objective and go to the The Archon’s Keep location of The Plaguelands, where the Anomaly must exist, signposted as an apparently routine Patrol Mission marker. Once you discover it, it’ll particularly state this on the screen to you understand you’re on the best course:
“A rushed datastream appears to be indicating an abnormality buried deep within Site 6.”
Before you go to Site 6, make certain you have a Splicer Key on you – you can discover the numerous sources in our Splicer Key short article.
Once you have one, go examine that Anomaly. To get to Site 6, go from Archon’s Keep to Archon’s Forge, then take a left in The Warrens, then utilize the Splicer Key to enter into the Site 6 complex correct.
Instead of falling the slope and into the caverns where the duplication chamber remained in The Iron Tomb objective, you’ll need to beat a Walker rather. Once you have, scan the Anomaly behind it. Now go to the Iron Temple and chat with Saladin to get the Beauty in Destruction mission.
Iron Medallion places for the Gjallarhorn’s ‘Beauty in Destruction’ Quest
This part of the questline has you discover Iron Medallions dotted through The Plaguelands Patrol location (and one in Felwinter Peak, too). While they remain in particular places, and will appear on your screen when you get close enough, they can be missed out on quickly enough. Since we wished to offer a more stressful visual guide, we’ve put every place in our committed Iron Medallion places for the Beauty in Destruction Quest short article. The set will not take you half an hour to finish.
Once done, head back to the Iron Temple, where you’ll get the A Symbol of Honor Quest.
Gjallarhorn Quest objective A Symbol of Honor
This is a cool objective that occurs on the Bannerfall Crucible map. The very first part of the objective is really uncomplicated – simply go where advised and scan the sights in the archives, library and workshop.
Then, Fallen will begin showing up. Sprint to the waypoint and scan the wall to trigger protective turrets, which will assist you in slaughtering the crowds. Next, you need to pacify 2 bombs one after another, which is a case of triggering your Ghost and remaining within the radius while eradicating more opponents.
Instead of entering, take your time weakening the opponents prior to scanning, and attempt and remain by the bomb as cover as you take down advancing enemies. Your biggest worry for both are Shanks – both explosive and regular – who will kill you quickly if you aren’t careful.
Having more than one Guardian in this mission will help you stop getting overwhelmed, otherwise don’t worry about a temporary retreat. The final part is a fight against a powerful Captain; in our battle he was more pre-occupied with shooting defense than targeting us, so remain at a distance, remove other opponents and shoot him whenever you can.
Collect SIVA Clusters
Once done, you have to go back to the Iron Temple, then go and collect 5 Dormant SIVA Clusters. These are positioned throughout The Plaguelands, and by now you’ve probably run into a few yourself. If you want to know where every known Cluster is located, see our Dormant SIVA Cluster locations list.
Whichever way you get them, return to the Iron Temple and receive the final objective, a Beauty in Delivery.

Final part of the ‘Echoes of the Past’ Quest to complete your Year 3 Gjallahorn
Similar to A Symbol of Honor, the Beauty in Delivery mission takes place on a Crucible map, Skyshock. First, clear the entire map of Fallen. This is made pretty difficult thanks to the tripmines everywhere, but take your time, use ranged weaponry, and be wary of Vandals that suddenly appear out of nowhere.
Once done, you have to fix the final components and defend the Ghost when it is create the weapon on a workbench. This is a pretty tough finale as a lot of Fallen will come your way. You can either do it fairly – and ideally with a Fireteam – by staying mobile and making clever use of Supers, or by cheesing it by standing in the corner right by the entrance doorway, making you mostly invisible to the enemies outside, while still causing the meter to fill. The occasional foe can still come in and take a few shots, but it’s an easy way to finish what is a challenging mission.
Once the Ghost is finished, you get your hands on your own Year 3, Light level 350 Gjallahorn. To finish the mission, you have to once again clear the map of Fallen, with the map populated with Heavy ammo caches. You essentially just need to take out the two Walkers, which the Gjallahorn does certainly assist with, so take your time and enjoy blowing up Dregs with rockets while you’re at it.
When the Walkers are down, head back to the Iron Temple, chat to Lord Saladin to total the Gjallahorn questline. Well done!
