The Shadowkeep expansion for Destiny 2 launched right at the beginning of October, and it introduced a ton of new Exotic weapons and armor items for you to uncover. In this guide to all the new Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Exotics, we'll be providing you with a full list of all the Exotic weapons and armor items found within the new DLC.
Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Exotics List
As you'd expect, Shadowkeep features a load of new Exotics, just like every other Destiny 2 expansion has done before it. Below, we've outlined all the Shadowkeep Exotics we've seen so far, and we'll be updating this guide as soon as we uncover any additional weapons or armor items.
- Ancient Gospel - Hand Cannon.
- Assassin's Cowl - Hunter's Cowl.
- Deathbringer - Rocket Launcher.
- Divinity - Trace Rifle.
- Erianna's Vow - Hand Cannon.
- $MACHINEGUN.NAME4 - Machine Gun.
- Monte Carlo - Auto Rifle.
- Leviathan's Breath - Heavy Bow.
- Zealot's Reward - Fusion Rifle.
A powerful hand cannon with a rounds per-minute rating of 140, the Ancient Gospel looks damn smooth. With a magazine of 10 shots and a really high impact rating, the Ancient Gospel certainly looks like a powerful tool.
This is an Exotic piece of armor in Shadowkeep, exclusive to the Hunter. If you defeat a Guardian with a melee attack, you'll temporarily turn invisible, as well as having your health and shields partially restored.
This Exotic is a really unique and stylish looking rocket launcher. Deathbringer actually fires remotely detonated projectiles that drop void orbs on enemies, and the further a void orb falls before it hits the target, the more powerful its detonation blast becomes.
It's been a while since a great trace rifle has been introduced to Destiny 2. Divinity looks set to sort that out, and if you sustain the beam on an enemy for long enough, it'll become enveloped in a field that weakens them, perfect for teammates.
Just like Ancient Gospel, this is another insanely powerful Exotic hand cannon for Shadowkeep. Although Erianna's Vow is supposedly powerful, if you fire the weapon too quickly it'll actually light you on fire. Huh.
MONEY. This Exotic machine gun fires explosive rounds, perfect for taking out high value targets or Gambit invaders extremely quickly.
A Kinetic auto rifle, the Monte Carlo charges up your melee ability with every kill. In turn, melee kills with the Monte Carlo grants ammo, as well as increasing weapon damage for a short time.
This new Exotic for Shadowkeep is actually termed as a 'heavy bow.' Leviathan's Breath fires explosive ammunition, which we've no doubt will come in handy for Crucible and other PvP combat.
The Zealot's Reward Exotic is a fusion rifle, and bears a striking resemblance to the Ancient Gospel. This weapon has really solid handling, impact, and reload speed ratings, but doesn't have great stability.
