Here's how to solve the Void, Arc, and Solar configurations and get your hands on the coveted Outbreak Perfected Exotic Catalyst.

If you've already gotten your hands on Outbreak Perfected in Destiny 2, congratulations! But if you're already smiting your enemies with the new hot weaponyou're going to want to get your hands on the catalyst. Here's how to complete the Voic, Arc, and Solar Configurations to get the Outbreak Perfected Exotic Catalyst from the Zero Hour Heroic Mission.

Configuration and Keycards

Before you can get started, you'll need to grab the configuration keypad and three colored keycards. The keypad and keycards are all in the same spots regardless of what element you're doing at the time, so no worries there. The important thing is to make sure you and your fireteam all have the keypad, since you won't be able to grab the keycards nor interact with the nodes in the vault without it. Note that you can only get these on the Heroic Difficulty.

The keypad itself is located right outside the first fight area, down this alleyway to the left of the barrier. It'll be on a set of shelves. 

Blue Keycard location

For the blue keycard, go through the vent near the aircraft, then drop down and walk down the stairs. Don't bust open the grate - instead, look under the stairs to find a secret tunnel. Walk to the end of the tunnel, jump over the gap, and get your first card.

Green Keycard Location

The Green Keycard is found just before the jumping puzzle - lucky us!. As you enter the room with the small pipes around you, head right and look under the platform to find yet another hidden tunnel. The Green Keycard is at the end of this tunnel, leaning against a box.

Red Keycard 

The final keycard can be found after the jumping puzzle. Jump to open door above you, but instead of turning right and going down the slide, head left. Go to the end of the room and find this side passage. You'll see the Red Keycard at the end of the vent. Now with all three keycards, head to the Cryptarch's vault to access the nodes.

Fire Room Paths

Now, of course it can't be easy enough to just walk in and get to the vault - you'll have to make your way through the Fire Rooms first. One wrong step and you'll get cooked - but luckily there's only three different path layouts. A little trial and error will get you to one of these three paths which will allow you to access the vault.

Vault Room Terminal and Lock Layout

Now that you're in the Vault Room, you can begin to activate the 49 nodes to claim your SIVA Particulates. Below is a perfect artist rendition of the room as it will appear to you in-game. Use this layout along with the tables we'll be providing you below to work out which terminal you'll need to activate. Eventually, you'll get to the point where you won't even need this diagram.

How to use the Configuration Terminals

Still with us? Here's how to properly interact with these terminals. Each of the 3 terminals have these clock-like dials on them. Interacting with the terminal will light certain segments of the clock up. You'll have to combine the segment lit up on the left and right dials to locate the correct room. For instance, the above dial will read 9-11. Should you run into a duplicate, just use a different terminal. Each week the correct room will change, so be sure to bookmark this page and keep the tables below handy. You'll receive a timer boost each time you successfully unlock a node, which will no doubt give you enough time to get through all 49 before time runs out. 

All Configuration Puzzle Tables

Below are each of the three tables containing the input and outputs needed to solve the configuration. The tables are organized so that the first column is Terminal 1, followed by the next two, with the required room on the right.

Alright, here are all the possible combinations (at least so far,) based on the following criteria:

Terminal 1 - Terminal 2 - Terminal 3 - Room Color & Number

That's a lot of numbers. You can always use tools like  Configurations – Outbreak Perfected, which allows you to type in the segment numbers and it'll give you the solution. But where's the fun in that? 

Once you complete all 49 nodes, the configuration puzzle is complete, and you're done. Each week, the quest will rotate between the three elements, so keep this guide handy. Best of luck and enjoy your new catalyst, Guardian! You'll need it, since Bungie decided to nerf all the fun Exotics. Not sure what we're talking about?
