Perhaps the name should have been a clue, but it’s been a rough road for players undertaking ‘The Lie’, the questline closing out Destiny 2’s current season. For those who haven’t been following, here’s a recap: The Lie will ultimately lead to Felwinter’s Lie, a reprise of a shotgun from the original game with a set of perks that make it eye-wateringly OP for PvP. 

Unfortunately, Bungie vastly overestimated players’ enthusiasm for the first step of the quest, which required 9 million completions of heroic Seraph Tower public events. Given that these were actually painful to finish with random teammates (the events occur in public instances, so it’s pot luck as to whether you’ll match anyone competent), it swiftly became clear that it would take over a month to finish the quest, taking it past the end of Season of the Worthy.
