Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer brings a host of new and returning normal and exotic weapons and armor to the game. Many of these exotic guns come with new perks that rain hellfire or shield you from incoming damage.
The list on this page will feature all the guns and armor released—as well as a short description of each—in the latest update of Destiny 2. Let’s take a look.
What is an Exotic Weapon in Destiny 2?
Exotic weapons are powerful, high-tier weapons that feature unique perks and traits. They’re fitted in a golden frame, a testament to their sheer rarity and difficulty to obtain. To compensate for their power, you can’t add more than one golden weapon or armor per slot in your weapon slots.
If you’re looking to find the rare Exotic weapons fast in Destiny 2, here are some places where you can get a chance to find these top weapons:
- Special vendors
- Crucible matches
- Bright and Exotic engrams
- Misc quest and missions
Many past Exotic weapons tend to be seasonal and time-limited. But due to the Beyond Light update, you now can purchase discontinued Exotics in the Monument to the Lost Lights Vault.
Destiny 2 New Exotic Weapons
Let’s look at the best guns in the latest Destiny season.
The Cryosthesia 77k is an Exotic sidearm that came out as a brand new weapon on the Season of the Splicer. It’s second to the Salvation’s Grip as the only Stasis damage-dealing sidearm you can find in Destiny 2.
This weapon has several beneficial perks like Polymer Grip, which increases handling speed. It also has Polygonal Rifling and Particle Repeater, which both increase stability.
But the more interesting trait of this weapon is its ability to freeze an enemy with Liquid Cooling, which it does in exchange for a magazine’s worth of ammo. To fully utilize this, you’ll need to be a quick shot on the battlefield. But battle-scarred veterans know the drill, and this sidearm works like a charm for that crowd.
That’s not all—this gun also fires charged shots through its ability, the LN2 Burst. This versatility allows this gun to wear many hats in PVP and PVE alike.
If you have the premium version of Destiny 2, you can receive this gun instantly in-game. Otherwise, you’ll need to be level 35 of the Season Pass before you can get this gun.
The Vex Mythoclast is unlike any other Fusion rifle in Destiny 2. Since it features no charge time and can shoot a sustained fire rate, it could be said that the Vex Mythoclast behaves more like an Auto rifle. It also can deal Precision damage on enemies, which the other rifles in its class can’t afford to do.
While the Vex Mythoclast has those Auto rifle-like perks, it also benefits from Fusion rifle perks on your Guardian’s armor.
You can find the Vex Mythoclast as a possible Vault of Glass final encounter drop.
Destiny 2 New Exotic Armors
These exotic armors are acquirable via solo completions of Legend and Master Lost Sectors.
Exclusive for Hunter Legs. As you run around the map, you gain more Super Energy from Orbs of Power that you find on the ground. You can overcharge your Super when you pick up an Orb of Power when your Super energy is full. This makes you gain a burst of healing when it’s cast, as well as additional Bonus damage to your Super.
The Path of the Burning Steps
Exclusive for Titan Legs. Stasis and Freeze statuses will have a minimized effect on your Guardian. This can be an absolute gamechanger depending on who you’re up against, especially since many powerful enemies and Champions require Stasis and Slow for immobility.
Aside from that, releasing your Guardian from the grips of these status conditions won’t hurt your character anymore. With this Exotic leg armor, a burst of Solar energy ignites around your character as well, which grants a 20% damage buff for every solar weapon kill.
Boots of the Assembler
Exclusive for Warlock Legs. If you stand in a healing rift, you create Noble Seekers that go out and search for allies to heal them so long that they’re outside the rift.
If you stand in an empowering rift, you boost your and your ally’s weapon damage so long that you’re inside the rift. For each time your Noble Seeker spots an ally outside the circle, the duration of the rift lasts a little bit longer as long as you’re standing on it.
Destiny 2 New Legendary Weapon Complete List
Here’s the complete list of Legendary guns that you can find in the latest season of Destiny 2.
Kinetic weapons shoot out bullets at enemies to widdle down their health bar. This is your standard gun type, a more normal option compared to Destiny 2’s plethora of space-themed guns. But don’t disregard this weapon as mediocre. The Kinetic weapons deal more damage on average compared to the other weapon types.
- Chroma Rush
- Ignition Code
- Fatebringer (Timelost)
- Survivor’s Epitaph
- Hung Jury SR4
- Hung Jury SR4 (Adept)
- Praedyth’s Revenge
- Praedyth’s Revenge (Timelost)
Energy weapons shoot bullets and energy beams. There are three unique elemental types of energy flavor: arc (electric), solar (fire), and void (dark light). They don’t do as much damage to enemies compared to kinetic guns, but they are better at slicing through shields.
- The Number
- Null Composure
- PLUG ONE.1
- PLUG ONE.1 (Adept)
- Empty Vessel
- Finite Impactor
- Pleiades Corrector
- Vision of Confluence
- Vision of Confluence (Timelost)
- Found Verdict
- Found Verdict (Timelost)
- Sojourner’s Tale
- The Deicide
- The Vision
- Occluded Finality
- Uzume RR4
- Uzume RR4 (Adept)
- Borrowed Time
- Shayura’s Wrath
- Shayura’s Wrath (Adept)
- Stochastic Variable
Power Slot: (Gun)
This includes special and heavy weapons. These shoot rare ammo that has the potential to deal the highest damage in the entire game. This makes them solid companions for bosses, raids, and strikes. This also makes the gun a good choice for clearing out high-priority targets in a crowd quickly.
- Memory Interdict
- Archon’s Thunder
- Corrective Measure (Timelost)
- Corrective Measure
- Shattered Cipher
- Hezen Vengeance
- Hezen Vengeance (Timelost)
Power Slot: (Knife)
Unlike Power guns, Power knives can also be used to defend against attacks. But, of course, the weapons also come at a cost of needing to go up and close with your enemies.
Here are the three released power knives in Season of the Splicer.
- Eternity’s Edge
Destiny 2 New Legendary Armor Complete List
