The Curse of Osiris DLC for Destiny 2 has launched. As you’d expect, it brings a ton of new exotics that Guardians can now get. This includes, of course, both weapons and armor. Let’s not forget the Ghost Shells, too! Every bit of equipment has it’s own perks for you to mix and match. So, let’s go over the exotic weapons and armor in Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris.
As far as weapon’s go, there’s a total of five new exotics you can get. This doesn’t take into account the weapons you get through the Forge and Prophecies from Brother Vance (for more info on those, check out our Destiny 2 Lost Prophecies & Forge Weapons article). First, there’s the Crimson hand cannon. Killing enemies with this gun gives you health back, while precision kills refill your magazine. Then, there’s the Telesto fusion rifle. Its projectiles “attach and detonate with a delayed Void blast”.
Moving on to The Colony grenade launcher allows you to fire insectiod robots, which them chase your enemies and explode in their proximity. The Jade Jackrabbit is an exotic scout rifle which gives you bonus damage when chaining body shots, on top of returning ammo to the magazine. Lastly, there’s the Prometheus Lens exotic trace rifle. It’s like Coldheart, just with solar damage, and it does more damage the longer you fire it. It’s a complete beast. If you get it, head straight into PvP and enjoy wreaking havoc.
Then, of course, there’s the exotic armor and Ghost Shells. The armor pieces include a bunch of helmets, chest armor, gauntlets, and boots. We’re going to list them all below, along with the perks that they offer. There’s a ton of new stuff to get through, so let’s not waste any more time.
