Bad JuJu

Bad Juju: Exotic Pulse Rifle

Calus has rewarded us with our own Vault, a way to honor the enemies, allies, and experiences gained during our journey as a Guardian called the Tribute Hall. On top of that, he's brought back one of our favorite exotic weapons from Destiny 1, and our team is here to help you acquire it!

In order to unlock the quest for Bad Juju, you must obtain and place 18 Tributes in your Hall.

There are two types of Tributes: some you earn through completing Triumphs associated with the Tribute Hall, others are purchased from the Visage of Calus (the statue) in the Tribute Hall with resources including Legendary Shards, Bright Dust, planetary materials, and Glimmer. We offer most Triumphs as well as planetary material/Glimmer grinds at the following service page:

Weapon Perks

Exotic Perk: String of Curses - Kills refill the magazine, increase damage for a short duration, and grant Super energy based on the strength of String of Curses. Fires full auto

Barrel: Hammer-forged Rifling - Durable ranged barrel

Magazine: Steady Rounds - This magazine is optimized for recoil control

Legendary Trait: Hip-fire Grip - Ergonomic grips that increase accuracy and stability when firing from the hip

Stock: Short-action Stock - This weapon is especially easy to grip

Obtaining Bad Juju

Unlock the Tribute Hall

In order to unlock the quest to obtain Bad Juju, you must unlock the Tribute Hall. Please note that we do not offer services for this particular step. All you need to do is visit Werner on Nessus and open the chest next to him. You will receive an invitation to the Hall where you will be asked to complete your first Visage Bounty. Once that is complete, you can start placing and earning your tributes. 

Obtain Bad Juju

To obtain Bad Juju, you need to place 18 Tributes in your Tribute Hall, whether they are earned via Triumphs or from purchasing the ones available from the Calus Visage in the Hall. Once this is complete, you will unlock the quest called "The Otherside", and completing it will result in obtaining Bad Juju.

Bad Juju Catalyst

Obtaining the catalyst is a lengthy process as it requires you to obtain and place 45 out of 50 Tributes in your Tribute Hall. The catalyst perk increases the duration of String of Curses.
