How to get Taraxippos (Legendary Scout Rifle) plus god roll guide in Destiny 2

Taraxippos is a Scout Rifle added to Destiny 2 as part of Guardian Games 2023. This is a lightweight Scot Rifle, with some very good perks, plus good combinations for both PVE and PVP. Today I’m going to go through the stats, the perks, the god rolls to chase, plus how to get Taraxippos in Destiny 2.

How to get Taraxippos

To get this one you’ll have to run through the introduction quest for the Guardian Games in 2023. The quest is fairly straight forward, all you need to do is speak to Eva Levante, follow the quests steps and you’ll get a Taraxippos at the end. You’ll then be able to get more rolls of Taraxippos throughout the Guardian Games event by adding medals to the podium in the tower. The more valuable the medal, the better rewards you’ll get in return.
