Malfeasance is an exotic weapon in Destiny 2. It’s a kinetic hand cannon that was added in the Forsaken expansion. It looks quite disconcerting, and it does bonus damage to Taken and invaders in Gambit. Getting it might be a bit of a chore, though, especially since it’s such a situational weapon. This guide will show you everything you need to know about Destiny 2 Malfeasance, how to get it and what it does.
How to get Malfeasance?
If you’re attracted to the unusual curves and slits of the new exotic hand cannon, you’ll have to spend some time in the coal mines. First off, you’ll need to play a bunch of Gambit. There’s a drop called Seething Heart that you’ll need from there. It drops from a boss called Ascendant Primeval Servitor. It’s a corrupted servitor, with actual flesh on it and some tentacles for good measure. There’s no way to force it to spawn, so you’ll just have to wait for it to appear.
Malfeasance stats & perks
Malfeasance’s main selling point is the increased damage it does to Taken enemies and Gambit invaders. This means you won’t have much use for it outside the stuff Forsaken brought. The Dreaming City is the biggest Taken colony you’ll find in the game, a Gambit is the only place where both of these bonuses will come in useful.
Its intrinsic perk is called Explosive Shadow, and it makes every fifth bullet you fire into the same enemy cause an explosion that does AoE damage. This is pretty cool, but it won’t get triggered on enemies with tiny health bars, since you won’t have the opportunity to shoot them five times before they’re dead. The damage output is not impressive when not fighting Taken, so you’re probably better off with something else.
