Destiny 2: Season of Arrivals - How to get the Witherhoard Exotic Grenade Launcher

There's a new Season Pass Exotic weapon to get your hands on in Destiny 2, so let's take a look at what you'll be doing.

Alongside six weapons from previous Shadowkeep seasons being added to the loot pool, there's a new Exotic available for those who own the Season Pass in Season of Arrivals: the Witherhoard Exotic Grenade Launcher.

It rolls with the Intrinsic Perk Primeval's Torment, where projectiles fired by it Blight the target or nearby area on impact. It also comes with Break the Bank, where Blighted targets take damage over time and Blight the nearby area on death. This means you can effectively one-shot really powerful enemies and it is beautiful to see.

The Destiny 2 Season Pass costs 1000 Silver, which is roughly £8.50 or $10. There are two ways to get the new Exotic, so don’t fret if you don’t want to part with your hard-earned cash.

If you’re a Premium Season Pass holder, head to the Seasons screen to view your rewards. You’ll see that you have a Premium Rewards box - in my game, it was a Premium Warlock reward - that contains Witherhoard Exotic Grenade Launcher, a set of Seasonal armour and an XP boost.

If you speak to Banshee-44 after you receive it, you should be able to pick up a Catalyst quest for the new Exotic. To complete the Catalyst, you'll need to:

  • Collect 50 Vault Keys by defeating combatants using Kinetic or Special Grenade Launchers
  • Earn 300 Filthy Lucre from Nightfall Strikes, Gambit and Crucible matches
  • Get 200 Grenade Launcher Multikills
  • Kill 100 Guardians using a Grenade Launcher

Once you've done that, visit Banshee-44 again to receive the Catalyst. You'll get the Silent Alarm Perk, where handling is increased and holstering this weapon automatically reloads it after a short wait.
