A pirate-themed season wouldn't be complete without a suite of new guns. Destiny 2's Season of the Plunder has added over 20 new weapons for players to chase, some of which are reprised weapons from the original Destiny's King's Fall raid. Paired with new perks, this season has something for everyone to chase, both for PvE and PvP.

Blunderbuss Shotguns, lightning-infused Fusion Rifles, and weapons carved from the bones of slain Hive are just a few things you can expect this season. We'll be covering every weapon added in Season of the Plunder, including Exotics and upcoming King's Fall weapons.

New Exotics

Season of the Plunder contains two new Exotic weapons—three if you pre-ordered the Lightfall expansion. Delicate Tomb is a Season Pass Exotic that acts like a Rapid-Fire Frame Fusion Rifle. It has horizontal spread in hip-fire and vertical spread in ADS, and kills generate Ionic Traces which supercharge the gun. Quicksilver Storm is a 720 Auto Rifle that can turn into a Grenade Launcher if you land enough shots.

The third Exotic is tied to the reprised King's Fall raid, although its Exotic perks are currently hidden in the API. Jump to the King's Fall section to learn of that raid's Exotic weapon.

Bungie 30th Anniversary Weapon Refresh

All Legendary weapons tied to the Dares of Eternity activity may now be crafted at the Enclave, allowing these weapons to use Enhanced Traits for the first time. Each weapon has received a new Origin Trait: Hot Swap. Switching to the weapon while damaged strongly increases its handling for a short duration. Swords gain charge speed and guard buffs instead.

Some new perks that can roll on these weapons include:

  • Gutshot Straight: Aiming down sights increases body shot damage, decreases target acquisition.
  • Pugilist: Final blows with this weapon generate melee energy. Dealing melee damage briefly improves the weapon's handling.

Some fan favorite perks like Incandescent and Chain Reaction may now roll on some of these weapons as well. Check out light.gg for a comprehensive breakdown of their new perk pools. We'll have a guide showcasing their new god rolls in the near future.

King's Fall Raid Weapons

This section contains spoilers for King's Fall loot. If you don't wish to be spoiled, skip to the net section.

King's Fall returns with six Legendary weapons and a highly-anticipated Exotic: the Touch of Malice. The perks for Touch of Malice are currently hidden in the API, but if its original Destiny variant is anything to go by, this weapon will drain your lifeforce to sustain its magazine, granting it a massive damage buff in the process. The items listed below are visible during the King's Fall trailer. We'll add the rest of this raid's loot once it launches.

You can obtain this weapon by ranking up with Zavala, Shaxx, or the Drifter by playing their respective ritual activity.
