With Destiny 2 Shadowkeep coming up, those of us who are already ahead of the curve are probably already scoping out the crème de la crème of weapon drops. While there isn't a definitive list yet of the high-tier weapons that we're going to be seeing in Shadowkeep, there have definitely been some rumored Exotics floating around. Here's our Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Exotics guide which we're going to update as more flash gear gets added.
Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Exotics Guide: Rumored Exotics
So far, there are three Shadowkeep Exotics that have been confirmed for the latest and greatest in Destiny 2 content. Both items were confirmed either in the trailer for Shadowkeep and in subsequent press releases from Bungie. We have the lowdown on them here.
Assassin's Cowl is an Exotic Hunter helmet
This will benefit from Vanishing Execution -- killing someone with a melee attack or with a Finisher will give you invisibility and grant some health and shield charge back.
Phoenix Cradle is an Exotic Titan piece of gear
This will benefit from Beacons of Empowerment -- once you create a Sunspot, the Sun Warrior buff that you get will double in duration. Any allies passing through the Sunspot you created will also get this status effect.
Monte Carlo -- Exotic auto rifle
The Monte Carlo's newest effects have not been confirmed, but this weapon has previously benefited from the Monte Carlo Method -- you have a chance to refill your melee attack after you damage someone, and you can fully charge your melee hit with every kill you get.
While we're sure that there will be plenty more cool treasures that will round out the Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Exotics list when all the new content drops, these are the ones that have been more or less confirmed for now thanks to the footage that we've seen and the information that Bungie has made public. It's also important to remember that the new Season of the Undying is due to start on October 1 as well, so this is just the beginning.
