Season of the Chosen’s secret mission, The Presage, leads you to a fight against the Scorn and a boss called the Locus of Communion. In the end, you’ll obtain the Dead Man’s Tale exotic scout rifle. The gun absolutely slays out in both PvE and PvP with its intrinsic perk called Cranial Spike which causes multiple precision hits in a row to deal increased damage and improve reload speed.
Dead Man's Tale / Exotic Scout Rifle / Kinetic
The gun comes with random rolls so it is definitely worth the grind to acquire an absolute God-roll.
To get random rolls of Dead Man’s Tale, you will need to re-run this quest after you’ve beaten it. The first time you complete this mission you’ll be given the generic version of this exotic scout. It won’t have any additional perks, so we strongly recommend running it several times. Beating the quest a second time will reward you with a piece of Pinnacle gear along with a random roll of this firearm. You will also earn a piece of lore, so it’s definitely worth the effort if you want to learn more about what happened.
You can only run the mission once a week per character. This gives you a total of three tries a week to get the roll you want.
