Just in time for the upcoming Dark Below expansion, Destiny players can now use the Sword of Crota in Patrol.
The blade, which originally appeared in a mission of the same name, is now available as part of a new public event called The Blades of Crota. The new event was discovered as part of the new update (Dec 1st, 2014), and its occurrence is on both the Moon and on Earth.
In order to get your hands on the sword, you’ll have to wait for the event to start and track down a gold Hive Knight called The Blade of Crota. After killing him, the sword will be yours to use. It will only last a minute or two, so be sure to make it count!!!
