Destiny 2: All The Final Shape Exotic Weapons

The Final Shape adds four new Exotic Weapons to Destiny 2; here are locations and everything you should know.

Destiny 2 - All The Final Shape Exotic Weapons

Bungie revealed six exotic weapons and six armor pieces, totaling 12 golden items in the Final Shape. However, there is still a possibility that we will receive more because this coming expansion is unique – it’s the finale of Dark and Light Saga. It wouldn’t be surprising if Bungie decided to break the rule and add more exotics for the final release on June 4th, 2024. While Beyond Light counted only 12 new exotic items, both Lightfall and Witch Queen introduced 13 new exotics in total.

Each exotic weapon has a special golden unique perk, which makes it highly valuable, rare, and worth hunting. They not only fill your exotic items collection but often have great use in different combat scenarios. You can get exotic weapons through story rewards, exotic engrams, complete exotic quests, random drops, or purchases from Xur.

All Exotic Weapons in the Destiny 2 Final Shape

There are six exotic weapons revealed so far by the Destiny 2 developers coming in the Final Shape:

  • Microcosm – Exotic Trace Rifle
  • Red Death Reformed – Exotic Pulse Rifle
  • Still Hunt – Exotic Sniper Rifle
  • Khvostov 7G-0X – Exotic Auto Rifle
  • Ergo Sum – Exotic Sword
  • Tesselation – Exotic Fusion Rifle (Possibly Comming)

This highly anticipated exotic Trace Rifle will use heavy ammo. As a result, its beam will be fantastic for damaging heavily shielded enemies and bosses, thanks to its bonus damage to shields with the unique perk.

Red Death is an exotic pulse rifle returning to Destiny 2 with some changes. It will now be a Solar weapon in the Energy Weapon slot. In Destiny 1, Red Death functioned similarly to the Crimson Hand Cannon in Destiny 2. However, details about its performance and the perks it will have in the final shape are still unknown.

This auto rifle returns to Destiny 2 as exotic with the same name as the previous legendary version but with new perks and few tunings. Every seventh bullet fired from Khvostov 7G-0X will inflict extra damage and bounce off to nearby targets. This special effect can be a game-changer in crowded combat situations, allowing the user to hit multiple enemies with a well-placed shot. Moreover, due to the Auto Rifle’s fast fire rate, it can be great for swarms of minor enemies.

There is a rumor that this exotic weapon will be available during the tutorial mission; consequently, all players will get it early in Destiny 2 Final Shape.

Ergo Sum is a stunning new addition to The Final Shape, boasting a striking design and unparalleled versatility. In a departure from other Exotic weapons, it offers the ability to drop with a range of elemental affinities, frames, perks, and traits. This opens up numerous possibilities for customization and makes it a weapon worth hunting multiple times each week to get the perfect roll.

With the Prismatic Subclass coming to Destiny 2, we will need to wait and see how it fits the new combat scenarios. However, the theme of Tesselation’s unique perk fits prismatic subclass flexibility in damage type.
