The Quest Step, A Melted Hunk of Metal in Destiny 2:Season of the Drifter.

A Melted Hunk of Metal is part of Independent Study in Destiny 2: Season of the Drifter.


"Despite the burn damage, you recognize this weapon as a Thorn, a legendary weapon capable of severing Guardians from the Light. The Shadows of Yor, follow of an infamous Guardian-killer, are well-known to carry Thorns. This one is broken, but you think it may be possible to fix it. A reputable (and discreet) gunsmith would know where to start. Bring the ruined Thorn to Banshee-44 in the Tower.."


  • To begin this quest, you need to find the Melted Hunk of Metal.
  • Travel to Trostland in the EDZ.
  • Once there, make your way to the entrance of the Salt Mines.
  • Make your way into the Mine itself, either ignoring or fighting through the Fallen.
  • Make your way to the Transmat inside the mine to get up top.
  • Start going up the slope from there.
  • As you approach the top, favor the left, the narrow ledge just past the guard rail for the road.
  • This will lead you through to a wider ledge and just past that, a camp site on the next ledge.
  • At this camp site, find the fire pit.
  • Interact with the fire pit to sift through the ashes and find the Melted Hunk of Metal.
