Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Exotics Guide ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


The Shadowkeep is the fourth expansion for Destiny 2 and it has a couple of new cool Exotics that can be found.  Let's take a look at where can you find them, how to get them and which of them are worth going after. In case you have no idea, the Exotic stuff can range from different weapons to different gear. The tricky part is that they are only available during the specific timeframe of the expansion.

Exotic Weapons in the Shadowkeep

  • Ancient Gospel - this is a very strong hand cannon that has a total of 10 bullets. Each of them deals tons of damage, which makes it one of the best weapons right now.
  • Deathbringer - a very cool rocket launcher that has the capabilities of remotely detonating its projectiles. In addition, the longer the range from where you fire it, the more powerful the detonation. In other words, it is definitely a very cool thing to have.
  • Erianna's Vow - this is also an exclusive weapon to this Season Pass. In fact, it is very similar to the ANcient Gospel but it deals more damage, which makes it the better choice. What's more, it has one pretty cool perk - if you shoot while looking down on the sight, you will do extra damage.
  • Divinity - a notable rifle that has the ability to shoot "beams" at an enemy. However, the thing that makes this weapon stand out is that this beam can also drain the life of your enemies. In order for this to happen, you need to to keep this beam on your target for a couple of seconds, which makes it tricky to pull off.
  • $MACHINEGUN.NAME$ - As the name suggests, this is one of the coolest weapons right now. It can fire exploding ammunitions which makes it perfect against multiple enemies at once.
  • Leviathan's Breath - this bow has one of the best attack speeds and damage in the game right now. In addition to that, it looks damn cool, which makes it a perfect choice for some players. It also has a pretty cool perk - whenever it is fully drawn, it will release a concussive blast that knocks away any enemies.

Exotic Armor

We will only focus on the most interesting armour pieces here.

  • Assassin's Cowl - this hunters' armour piece is aimed at improving the stealth capabilities of the hero. Needless to say, this makes it very important in some scenarios.
    The big perk of this armour is that it grants you temporary invisibility whenever you kill a Guardian, which is pretty cool.
  • Phoenix Cradle - these boots are very cool because they can help your allies a lot. That said, they don't really do much for you, so if you are a solo player this is definitely something that you would want to pass on. Whenever you use them and then an ally passes through the Sunspot that it creates, he/she will be granted with a cool buff called Sun Warriors.
  • The last piece of armour that we want to emphasize on is the Stormdancer's Brace. Unlike the rest on this list, this is definitely the strongest armour you can get because it allows you to take on multiple enemies at once. The effect that it has is basically a stacking ability that does more damage with every kill that you do. What's more, there is absolutely no cap here, so in theory, you can reach tons of bonus damage.

Exotic Catalysts - a Bonus

Apart from the cool exotics that we can get in Destiny 2, the new expansion also brings special stuff called Catalyst. They are basically different items that allow you to upgrade even further the Exotic items and weapons that you got. Needless to say, this will make them even more powerful, which means that it's something that you really want to get your hands on.

The good thing about these Catalysts is that you can get them in many different ways. Let's take a look at some of the most common ones you can find.

  • Borealis Catalyst - this cool thing gives you +20 Reload Speed, which works wonders with some of the slower weapons in Destiny 2. Unfortunately, this is a random drop only, which means that you need to kill a lot of enemies in order to find it.  Once you find it and want to upgrade it, prepare yourself to do 150 arcs, sollar and void kill.
  • Coldheart Catalyst - this is a very strong catalyst because it increases the stability, as well as the reload speed by 20, which makes it even more valuable than the first one. Sadly, similar to the Borealis Catalyst, it is only a random drop by heroic Strike and the Nightfall Bosses. In order to upgrade it, you need to do 300 kills.
  • Colony Catalyst - unlike those mentioned above, this one is a little bit weaker because it does not improve any stats. Instead, it increases the ammo reserves by 10, which is still cool. It is a random drop in the Crucible Matches and if you want to upgrade it, prepare for doing over 500 kills.
  • Crimson Catalyst - this can be absolutely priceless in certain scenarios because it provides +20 range. Just imagine having this in any of your weapons that are lacking the range. If you want to get your hands on this catalyst, prepare yourself to grind a lot because it is a random drop by PvE enemies. If you are interested in upgrading it, you will have to do over 300 precision kills.
  • A.R.C.I Catalyst - the last catalyst on our list provides +20 stability, which can be priceless for some of the heavier weapons in Destiny 2. Sadly, the only way in which you can get it by a random drop. Similar to the previous one, you will need to do over 300 precision kills.
