Deathbringer Destiny 2 Guide: What We Know About This Shadowkeep Weapon

The Deathbringer rocket launcher is confirmed to arrive with Shadowkeep, and it more was revealed about it at PAX West. Here are its two perks:

Dark Deliverance — this fires projectiles that can be remotely detonated to spew out Void orbs

Dark Descent — the further the Void orbs generated by the weapon fall, the stronger the resulting explosion.

Those curious about the Deathbringer Destiny 2 exotic may also be pleased to know that it will have the following stats:

  • 15 rounds per minute
  • A Blast radius tuned to maximum
  • Magazine size of 1
  • Even handling, reload and stability

The weapon’s tagline is “Sing them a lullaby of death and nothing more.” This glamorously-shaded weapon boasts a royal purple hue and a pronged muzzle that is giving us intense Predator vibes. It looks like it packs a hell of a punch and from what we know about its numbers so far, it stands up to that reputation and then some. With Shadowkeep not too far away at this point, we’re sure to get more information about other Exotics that will be keeping the raiding crowd well-occupied, so stay glued to our guides hub as we update it with more information just for you. Need to keep abreast of the planned content roadmap for Destiny 2 going forward? We’ve got the updates here on hand for you.
