How to Get Forensic Nightmare in Destiny 2

There are plenty of submachine guns in Destiny 2, and the Witch Queen expansion brought quite a few more. That’s the case for Forensic Nightmare, a Legendary Kinetic Stasis Submachine Gun with a Precision Frame. But if you’re a weapon collector trying to get that coveted 782/782, you might be wondering how in the world you can get your hands on this Submachine Gun.

Fortunately, it’s likely easier than you think.

If Forensic Nightmare has eluded you, it’s likely because you haven’t been looking in the right place. This Submachine Gun is part of the Throne World loot pool. That means you can only find Forensic Nightmare in Savathun’s Throne World or while engaged in Throne World activities.

But the good news is that it can drop from pretty much anything on the Throne World. It can drop as a Vendor Rank up reward, it can drop from Public Event chests, it can drop from chests in general. But once you find it, is Forensic Nightmare worth having in your inventory? Or should it be relegated to the vault (or even dismantled)?

Well, it’s certainly not the best Submachine Gun around. But for PvE, it’s okay. Check out its God Roll and try it for yourself.
