3# The Solutions to the Perplexing Riddles

A# ‘The Rat King’s Crew runs to and fro, good girls and boys know where to go, pick up your toys and Daron your socks, on errands of woe, on errands we walk.’

This riddle suggests that you need to complete three patrols by teaming up with other individuals. The quickest way: Titan (Yes, Rat King’s Crew item).

B# ‘The Rat King’s Crew goes arm in arm, to fight as one, to not harm, so have your fun and run outside, rally the flag, and we’ll never die.’ 

Coming to the second riddle, you will have to finish the two public events. If there is a paucity of public events, go back to orbit and re-enter the planet.

C# ‘The Rat King’s Crew goes four and four, with good fights they learn to score, then three as one they stand upright, return from past the wall and want more.’ 

To solve this riddle, dive into the crucible (2 matches) with the help of a team member. This is the easiest riddle of all three.

D# ‘Rat King’s Crew stands there as one, they see Night’s fall and fear it none, but watch the clocks as you scale the wall, lest five remain hope comes for none.’

In this final riddle, the difficulty level increases. The nightfall strike is required to be completed (Twist – Make sure that five minutes are remaining).

Final Words

RKC (Rat King Catalyst) helps in enhancing the performance of the weapon (Rat King). But at the same time, it does not bring it to the league of other top-tier weapons like PVE or PVP.
