Outbreak Refined is a series of quests in Destiny 2 that unlock additional perks for Outbreak Perfected. These quests are only available once you’ve completed the Asset Protection quest from Ada-1, which involves finishing Zero Hour. Each quest will require you to get kills and complete Zero Hour on Legend, but more importantly, find and activate hidden switches.

Outbreak Refined guide

Once you complete Zero Hour once, visit Ada-1 every week and collect your Outbreak Refined quest. You can stockpile all three and get them all to the same point of needing to toggle switches and then complete them in a single run. This is useful if you don’t want to run Legend multiple times.


Outbreak Refined 1 – Rapid Hit

  1. Defeat Fallen in the Cosmodrome to claim 20 Inert SIVA Clusters
  2. Toggle the first pair of switches in Exotic mission Zero Hour on Legend difficulty
  3. Complete the Exotic mission Zero Hour on Legend difficulty
  4. Speak with Ada-1 in the Tower

The first pair of switches are only available on the Legend version of Zero Hour. You may need to activate the switches and then restart the activity if you don't have enough time to reach the boss and defeat it. If you're playing in a fireteam, get one person to throw the switches while the others continue on.

The first set of switches is found immediately after the landing pad with the plane. Instead of going below the plane, enter the vents on the upper level. Drop down into the room and break into the vent behind the blue boxes. Take a left and drop down the circular tube to find two Fallen Captains.

Look for the switch on the center wall, this is one switch. To the left of the switch are red pipes, jump to them to find another switch – activating this  opens the hatch that lets you access the other switch.

From the hatch switch, turn around and jump diagonally across the room (the switch for the quest should be on your left). Go through the small tunnel that's lined with red pipes into a large chasm. Jump across the chasm and climb up the steep wall to the top.

On your left will a large "03" printed on the wall with an open hatch. Jump on top of the hatch and then jump up the tube using the notches on the wall as small platforms. At the top of the room is the switch beside the shelves. Activate the switch and then quickly retrace your steps to the center room. Activate the switch on the box to finish this step.


Outbreak Refined 2 – Rewind Rounds

Developing…

  1. Defeat Fallen in Exodus Garden 2A Lost Sector in the Cosmodrome to claim Inert SIVA Clusters
  2. Toggle the second pair of switches in Exotic mission Zero Hour on Legend difficulty
  3. Complete the Exotic mission Zero Hour on Legend difficulty
  4. Speak with Ada-1 in the Tower

Outbreak Refined 3 – Headseeker

Developing…

  1. Defeat Fallen in The Devils’ Lair strike in the Cosmodrome to claim Inert SIVA Clusters
  2. Toggle the final pair of switches in the Exotic mission Zero Hour on Legend difficulty
  3. Complete the Exotic mission Zero Hour on Legend difficulty
  4. Speak with Ada-1 in the Tower

Completing all three Outbreak Refined quests will reward you with all three additional perks for Outbreak Perfected: Rapid Hit, Rewind Rounds, and Headseeker. The ideal perk is no doubt defined by your playstyle, but it’s hard to look past Rewind Rounds, especially during raid bosses fights where ammo is scarce. Remember to level up Outbreak Perfected so you can swap out new barrels and magazine options (don’t forget the Exotic catalyst too).
