Destiny 2’s latest expansion Beyond Light has officially arrived, and with it comes a number of brand new Exotic weapons that players can earn and use as they enjoy one of the best Xbox One shooters around. Here’s an overview of each of the new Exotic weapons, as well as an explanation about how to get them.

Wield the Darkness

Welcome to Europa, Guardian…

In Beyond Light, players will encounter a dark Fallen faction, travel to new locations, and go beyond the Light to wield the power of the Darkness.

No Time to Explain

The No Time to Explain pulse rifle returns rounds to the magazine whenever you land precision hits or hits against enemies who are affected by Stasis. Stacking this effect repeatedly will spawn a portal in front of you that shoots bullets from an alternate timeline, increasing your DPS.

How to get it

This Exotic is exclusively available to people who purchase the Beyond Light + Season bundle, which includes the Season Pass for the Season of the Hunt, and will be given once the Beyond Light campaign is finished. However, all Beyond Light owners will be able to acquire the weapon after the Season of the Hunt ends, though Bungie hasn’t announced how yet.

Cloudstrike

The Cloudstrike sniper rifle causes lightning bolts to spawn on an enemy when you land precision hits, boosting damage. Additionally, rapidly landing precision hits will cause a full lightning storm to appear, damaging both the enemy you’re shooting and the enemies around them as well.

How to get it

At the moment, it’s not clear how to obtain the Cloudstrike, but we’ll update this guide when we know.

The Lament

The Lament sword features a special block that allows you to rev the chainsaw part of the blade. Once it’s fully revved up, you can unleash the blade’s full power. This attack shreds through shielded enemies, which means it will be a stellar option against Barrier Champions during Nightfalls. Attacking while fully-revved will also heal you, which is helpful since using swords against strong enemies can be quite dangerous due to how close to them you have to be.

How to get it

Currently, it isn’t known how to get The Lament sword. We’ll update this article when those details are revealed.

Salvation’s Grip

The Salvation’s Grip grenade launcher is a Stasis-focused weapon. Each grenade you shoot will create Stasis crystals at and around the point of impact, freezing targets. You can also charge the grenades up to increase the number of crystals created and the radius of the freezing.

How to get it

We’re not sure how to get the Salvation’s Grip just yet, but we’ll update this article when we know more.

Duality

The Duality Solar shotgun is unique in that it fires pellets when hip-fired, but fires slugs when you aim down the sights. This makes the weapon versatile since you can change the type of shot you’re putting down range depending on the situation. Additionally, the weapon’s On Black Wings perk makes it so that kills with pellets give you a boost to precision damage and reload speed, which you can stack repetitively by landing slug precision hits.

How to get it

You get the Duality immediately if you purchased the Season Pass for Season of the Hunt, which is the season that launched with Beyond Light. If you don’t want the Season Pass, you’ll still get the Duality when you reach Rank 35 on the free-to-play version.

Hawkmoon

Hawkmoon is a special Exotic hand cannon that we know is coming back to Destiny 2 in Beyond Light, although it doesn’t appear to be obtainable just yet. In the original Destiny, this weapon would apply a damage buff to random bullets in the magazine when you reloaded. It’s unclear if it will work exactly the same way in Destiny 2, but it’s likely that the new version of the weapon will, at the very least, be similar.

How to get it

As of now, the Hawkmoon doesn’t appear to be available just yet so we’re not sure how to get our hands on it. We’ll update this section when we know more.

Eyes of Tomorrow

Finally, there’s the Eyes of Tomorrow, which Destiny fans have figured out is the Exotic weapon tied to the new Deep Stone Crypt raid coming on Nov. 21. Based on this Light.gg listing, this rocket launcher can target and track multiple targets at the same time. Getting four or more kills with one volley will increase the damage of the next volley, though it’s not sure if this effect stacks.

How to get it

If the Eyes of Tomorrow is like previous raid Exotics, players will either have to accomplish a specific objective while in the raid (like doing a special puzzle) or hope they get a lucky drop after killing the raid’s final boss. Once the raid releases, we’ll let you know how this weapon is obtained.
