Every Waking Moment is a Legendary Void SMG that debuted in one of the Destiny 2 Shadowkeep expansion’s Story Quests. Some of the weapons from the expansion were “sunset” by Bungie in 2020. Nevertheless, now Guardians are able to get the Every Waking Moment SMG again in Destiny 2.
Where to Get Every Waking Moment in Destiny 2
To snag yourself the Every Waking Moment SMG, you need to complete the “Essence of Obscurity” Quest from Lectern of Enchantment on the Moon. There are three things that you have to do to finish the Quest:
- Complete Activities on the Moon.
- Defeat 50 Combatants with Submachine Guns.
- Collect Withered Plumes from the Circle of Bones.
The first two requirements are rather simple. Completing Activities, aka Lost Sectors, Public Events, Patrols, etcetera, is just a matter of grinding around five of them. You should also complete the second one halfway through if you use SMG while doing the Activities. Now, the last requirement is a bit tricky.
Where to find Withered Plumes in Destiny 2
Withered Plumes can be found in the Circle of Bones in Hellmouth. Check YouTuber Esoterickk’s video above or read our text guide below:
- Keep following the path until you make it to the Gatehouse.
- Head straight until you enter a room lit by green light.
- Take right, go through the door, follow the path until you’re facing a bunch of Hives.
- Look for a door lit by green light. Enter that door, and you’ll go through the Circle of Bones.
- Go past the caves, take right and keep going until you reach a dead end.
