Brief about Destiny 2
Destiny 2 is an online multiplayer game released in 2017. In 2019, this video game became free to play. It was great news for gamers around the world.
The plot of the game is interesting. It is foxed in a sci-fi world. The players are like the guardian of the cities or we may say the protectors of the earth.
The players head on to protect the last safe city present on the earth from the aliens. The guardian has a power which is known as the light which is used for the protection of the city from the aliens.
Even with the presence of the guardians, the aliens’ species which is known as Cabal, and their leader Dominus Ghaul attacks the last safe city and takes away the light from the guardian.
The guardians’ role is to fight the aliens and take back their light and the city that was taken from them.
Destiny 22 was a success as it received favourable reviews and ratings from the critics. But the former part of the game didn’t get applauded for its plot. The game has some solid grounds and an original plot.
What is Black Armory?
Black Armory is an expansion pack that was released in 2018. It is the first expansion in the annual pass of Destiny. This expansion has some new actions; there are raids, lots of new weapons, and an armory for collection.

Destiny 2 Forges Locations
In the quests, the guardians have to look for the mysterious Ada and the hidden weapons. The quests include reigniting the lost forge locations in Destiny 2 by clearing different waves of enemies and different tasks.

Every location has its quest which makes things challenging and time-consuming. Even after finding locations, You need to clear different enemy waves which will cost you a lot of time. Here we have listed the locations one needs to visit on the map and how to find them.
Volundr Forge Location and Quest Steps
Volundr Forge is the first forge location in the game. The location is challenging with several hoops that need to be jumped. Although it is very easy.
Many activities in Black Armory require a power level of 595 to 600 for doing damages. In the new expansion, the power level has been raised.
Volundr is guided by 610 to 630, so you need to level up from there and gather some more gears.
For starting the quest, you need to visit the old spider in the tangled shore. There he will give you a black armory badge which needs to be shown to Ada for gaining her trust. Ada will help you in your journey.
Next, you need to talk to Ada, she will then give you the next steps of the quest. The first quest is called a basic machine gun frame. From there you need to find a weapon core and collect 25 Compound Ether.
Next, you need to head to EDZ and then complete it by visiting the outskirts and the Gulch. Forge Saboteur is the guy you will be looking for. For his defeat, you need to on around 600 powers but defeating him is very easy. After defeating him, look for a large black crate that will have the core weapon in it.
For charging the core weapon you will have to obtain a compound weapon from the ether. Now, here comes the difficulty, After starting the calibration, you will have to kill a large number of hives that have powerful weapons. Defeating the powerful enemies will yield powerful weapons as well.

Gofannon Forge Location and Quest Steps
Just like the steps from Volunder to forge, in Gofannon forge also you will have to follow the same steps for getting into the forge.
The beginning steps towards Gafannon Forge’s location are to identify the fallen enemies and kill the ones who have stolen black armour gear. It may sound easy but it isn’t.
Finding the fallen enemy may take some time and you can try finding than in the tangled shore. After you gather the armour gear head to the tower, talk to Ada she will guide you towards the next steps which include gathering 35 tainted gears and that can be done by killing fallen.
After this talk to the spider and ask for the next step which will be killing 75 fallen enemies using melee. It is the easiest part of the quest but also it will take some time. Finish the crypto-pod heroic event at the Thieves Landing.
After completing these steps, go back to the spider and he will tell you to go to the next location that is the scary Winding cove. You will need 620 powers from here onwards.
Next, look for the captain. Go towards Exodus black. You are moving closer to the final steps and here you need to kill the boss and look for gears. Then head on to Artefacts and cross through a ship to the forge locations.
Once you find the forge, You will definitely need a Sniper Rifle. You need to look for Ada and she will give you a basic Sniper Rifle frame quest that will help you in reigniting the Gafannon Forge. The quest isn’t over here.
You have to look for other weapons now, which include 25 compound ether and power weapons. After this, you will have to achieve 25 precision kills with the sniper rifle and also have to kill 5 powerful enemies. Which is a tough thing to do.
There is nothing much to do in this quest. Another step includes 10 multi-kills with the help of a sniper rifle. Now you need to gather 20 radiant seeds and go to the tower to meet Ada-1, she will give you a radiant sniper rifle frame.
As you have the weapon head back to Gafannon forge, kill the boss in the same way as you did in Volundr. After defeating the boss you will receive a powerful Tatara Gaze sniper rifle as a reward.
Izanami Forge Location Quest Steps

Go back to Ada to know what’s next. You will have to complete three missions and after the successful completion, the igniter will get fixed.
Now you can reignite the forge. The process is the same as it was in the other two forges.
Bergusia Forge Location Quest Steps
It is the final location of the game. For getting started, you need to head towards Niobe Labs. You need to visit over the bridge in Europian Dead Zone (Southeastern part). For detail, Visit the upper platform and you will find the exact location.
You need to have a power level of 640, there are no tricks or tips for reigniting the forge. You have to do it on your own. Look out for the flying drones and try to get access to black armour key mould. This is by far the toughest forge for Destiny 2 players but the rewards are worth trying as you will not only get the best rewards but also you can earn multiple Prime Engrams. Survival of three waves of the enemy is not going to be easy. So, make sure to practice before trying.
In this forge, you will have to fight a walker and two other enemies. It is said that defeating enemies in this location isn’t difficult. The reward of fighting these enemies can be an exotic weapon known as Jotunn.
The quest might be difficult but it is worth trying. After all the more difficulty you face the better reward you get.
This was all about this sci-fi game. It has several levels of difficulty and the thrill keeps on rising with the locations.
Many weapons have their role, category, and importance in the game. You can surely complete the game with basic weapons, although it may take years to complete. So, it will be a better choice to find and earn exotic weapons. The exotic weapons are the most precious ones and have limited weapons and are difficult to get. The pinnacle weapons can be achieved through the moderate hustle and are less powerful and useful than exotic weapons and the augmented weapons are easily available but less useful in game.
