A Khvostov Rising
A Khvostov Rising is a side-mission included in Destiny's fourth installment, Rise of Iron. It succeeds the quest We Found a Rifle, and is required to finish in order to accumulate the Khvostov 7G-0X, an exotic auto rifle and the upgraded variant of its predecessor, the Khvostov 7G-02. It takes place in the reduxed version of the Cosmodrome, available by travelling through the Plaguelands.
The Guardian deploys, beginning their search in Dock 13.
The Guardian dispatches a pair of enemies, then scans the former resting place of their first jumpship.
The Guardian progresses in the direction of The Divide, facing light opposition before entering the open area.
The Guardian deploys their Ghost in an open spot just outside of the building they came from.
The Guardian searches The Divide for the Captain.
From here, a timer begins to count down. The Guardian has a short amount of time to slay Kaviss, Splicer Captain. After enough damage, he will begin to retreat towards The Breach, finally transmatting from harm.
The Guardian enters The Breach, into familiar territory. They exit the tunnel.
The Guardian deploys their Ghost in the SIVA cloud originating over a cluster of small nodes on the ground, situated in the centre of the room.
The Guardian presses onward, navigating through SIVA clouds and laser trip mines. Eventually they come across an open area of the Wall,
After a brief trek through the open area, the Guardian spots Kaviss with a pair of Splicer Servitors on the other side of a barred wall.
Combat re-ensues. Fallen Skiffs emerge and deploy Fallen into the area, and the Guardian combats Kaviss and his heavy reinforcements. Upon death, Kaviss drops the Khvostov 7G-0X, an exotic auto rifle.
The Guardian equips the Khvostov, and begins to make their way outside of the Wall.
The Guardian exits the Wall, coming out into the open again, and the place of their rebirth. Fallen litter the area amongst the dozens of derelict husks of Golden Age cars. The Splicership Menkis-Syn looms over the area from the edge of the cliff ahead. The Guardian fights their way onboard, clearing its hangar of any enemy resistance.
The Guardian obliges, making their way to the bow end of the Ketch's hangar deck. Amidst the blizzard the ruins of a city can be seen in the distance, on the other side of the collapsed highway. The Guardian chats with Ghost.
