Gathering Intel Quest Steps – Salvation’s Grip

Anxious to get your hands on Salvation’s Grip? Here’s how:

Step 1: Gathering Intel – Defeat Fallen Captains and Servitors on Europa

For this step, you will need to kill Fallen Captains and Servitors on Europa. This is pretty simple since the Fallen are all over Europa. Both Camdus Ridge and the Eventide Ruins boasts a ton of Fallen enemies, but I had the most success in Bray Exoscience. Not only is there always a servitor that spawns in the top right room directly overlooking the lobby, but you can keeping reinstating these enemies by leaving the area and returning.

“I’ve picked up a few Fallen weapons in my time. Pretty impressive what they can do with some spare parts and grit.” —The Drifter

Step 2: Locating the Prototype – Complete an Empire Hunt

Empire Hunts are pretty simple, as they are boss fights with Eramis’ various council members. If you’ve been following the campaign, you should have The Dark Priestess available after beating the main story. Just following this questline and beating it will satisfy the requirements for this step. If you’ve already beaten it, just visit Variks and he should have three Empire Hunts available at the bottom of his menu.

Defeat one of Eramis’s council members in an Empire Hunt. Requires completion of the “Reclaiming Europa”, “Empire’s Fall” and “The Dark Priestess” quests.

Visit Variks in Charon’s crossing to purchase Empire Hunts quests.

“Looks like there are some cracks in the empire now that Eramis is out. We can use that.” —The Drifter

Step 3: Stasis Practice – Eliminate Foes with Stasis

Time to prove we understand our own newfound abilities.

Eliminate combatants with, or affected by, your Stasis abilities.

“Spider’s got eyes all over this system. What do you wanna bet he has an inside man on Europa?” —The Drifter

Step 4: Lost Sector Rendezvous – Go to the Concealed Void Lost Sector

Here’s where the difficulty spikes, as you’re asked to complete a Lost Sector on Europa. This is the one found in the Asterion Abyss in the large glacial chasm. Enemies here are around 1200 Power, so try to be at a minimum of 1170 before tackling this. I recommend saving your Heavy ammo for the final boss since the room is small and it’s very easy to become overwhelmed. After defeating the boss, speak to the spikey Vandal by the chest to complete this step of the quest.

“I got one more piece of the puzzle to give you. Then we’re ready to pull this thing off.” —The Drifter

Step 6: Stealing Stasis – Complete the Stealing Stasis Mission

Your final task is completing a mission called The Stasis Prototype. This can be found in Charon’s Crossing and is not too difficult if you’re properly leveled. We won’t spoil any of the story details, but it’s a pretty fun mission — especially if you’re a fan of Spider’s Fallen. Once you complete this mission, return to the Drifter to unlock your shiny new grenade launcher!

Complete the “Stealing Stasis” mission.

“I’ve got some… business to take care of. But I’ll send your Ghost some notes on the area. How to get in and out real quick, no trouble.” —The Drifter

Step 7: Rendezvous with Drifter – Return to Drifter

And that’s it! Head on back to The Drifter and claim your all new Stasis grenade launcher!

Visit Drifter in the Annex.

“Let’s see what the Fallen managed to cook up.” —The Drifter
