Destiny 2’s new expansion pack, Beyond Light, has a lot of new maps to explore and new weapons to collect. In addition to the new regions, the new Beyond Light Exotics are something many players have been looking forward to.
Exotics are a powerful weapon in Destiny 2, each with its own perks. These can be obtained in a variety of ways, including long quests, random drops by eliminating enemies, mission rewards, vendors, and even pre-ordering Season Passes.
Beyond Light New Exotic
In this article, we’ll show you all the new exotics of Beyond Light, along with their unique perks, how to get weapons, and their areas of expertise.
No time to explain – the first new thing beyond the exotic of light
No Time to Explain is an exotic pulse rifle that you get by purchasing Beyond Light with the Season Bundle. Weapons will be acquired at the end of the Beyond Light campaign, and Bungy has announced that everyone who owns Beyond Light can also acquire it without time to explain later.
This pulse rifle has the unique benefit of refunding a round to the magazine on hits against precision shots and stasis-affected enemies. What makes this even cooler is that as you continue to stack, the weapon will spawn the portal in front of you. This portal fires bullets from another dimension. These perks (time slip and rewind) make it a very fun and unique weapon. With excellent range and stability, this weapon is well suited for long range damage.
Not at the top of the DPS chart, this weapon works very well to wipe out groups of enemies from a distance.
Eyes of Tomorrow is an exotic rocket launcher that hasn’t been released yet. It’s unclear if the weapon will be the ultimate reward for the raid, but it will be obtained through future Deep Stone Cryptrade. This rocket launcher launches multiple tracking rockets at the same time. Obtaining removal with these will reduce the damage to the rocket in the next round.
This exotic sword hasn’t been released in the game yet, but the long-drawn quest has already been leaked. To get TheLament:
- Find 3 dead Exos in Europa
- Find the giant Exo hidden in the Exo facility
- Eliminate 100 Beck’s and 20 special Beck’s enemies with a sword
- Complete 3 missions: Pioneering Europe, Dark Priestess, Fall of the Empire
- Here’s another challenge that hasn’t been completely leaked yet
- Defeat 60 Beck’s in the finisher and find a piece of mourning on the Grassway (Strike)
- Take them to Banshee-44 and find a bunker in Europa
- Complete the mission: rebuild the past
- Talk to Banshee-44 again
After all. This weapon is better, Destiny! The Lament Sword has a chainsaw side of the blade that can be charged to unlock full power. This allows you to heal you while breaking the shield, making it a great option for nightfalls.
CloudStrike is an exotic sniper rifle that can be dropped from the Empire Hunt. These hunts are all unlocked after the Varik quest line (after the campaign) and hunting Elamis officers. As you complete them on a higher difficulty level, CloudStrike is more likely to drop.
CloudStrike increases damage and drops enemy lightning bolts for each accurate hit. Attacking many of them quickly enhances this effect, causing a nice thunderstorm that damages both the original target and the enemies around it. This weapon is perfect for fighting bosses and creating thunderstorms to break through groups of enemies.
Duality is an exotic solar shotgun that you can get as soon as you get your Season of the Hunt Season Pass. Even if you don’t buy it, you can get a rank 35 weapon for free.
As the name implies, the Duality shotgun has a dual shooting mechanism. ADS and shoot will fire slugs, and hip fire will fire pellets. This is ideal for multiple situations: short range and long range combat. Its unique “On Black Wing” perk also improves reload speed and accurate damage when getting pellet kills.
Hawkmoon is not yet available in the game, but may be available in Season of the Hunt’s own quest.
The Hawkmoon is the first exotic hand cannon to appear in the original Destiny. Based on the mechanics of the game, it’s safe to assume that the Destiny 2 version of Hawkmoon is very similar. In the original Destiny, this weapon randomly boosts damage when reloading. We will learn more about this weapon in the near future.
Salvation’s Grip is an exotic grenade launcher available after the Beyond Light campaign is complete. Special weapon quests are available from Drifter. This can be completed by following the steps below.
- Defeat 10 captains and servants who have fallen in Europa
- Eliminate enemies with stasis ability
- Complete the hidden void lost sector
- Talk to Drifter to get the Stealing Stassis mission
- After completing this mission, talk to Drifter again to get Salvation’s Grip Grenade Launcher.
Since the mission is based on stasis, the grenade launcher also handles stasis effects. Grenades shot with this launcher produce stasis crystals that freeze enemies. This launcher can also be charged to increase the number of crystals and the freezing radius of each crystal. This is great for controlling crowds and getting out of trouble.
Endnote on New Beyond Light Exotic
We hope your guide will help you understand Beyond Light’s new exotics! Personally, I love the grip of salvation and I don’t have time to explain it because of its unique perks. It’s always great to see weapons that aren’t just about shooting. These new exotics are very creative and crafted.
