How to get Prospector Exotic Grenade Launcher?

Getting the Exotic Prospector Grenade Launcher in Destiny 2 is as simple and as difficult as decrypting them from Exotic Engrams. In order to get those, well, you’ll just have to play the game and get them to drop from chests. Arguably the best way to do so is to finish Public Events. Unfortunately, hunting for a specific weapon can be frustrating if the RNG gods are displeased with you. Don’t give up, keep farming Engrams, and the Prospector Grenade Launcher will be yours in the end.

As for the weapon itself, probably its most striking feature are the looks. It’s very ornate, a true beauty of a gun. It kinda resembles a Tommy Gun if it were made in the Wild West. Except it shoots grenades that deal Arc damage. A lot of them. Its Intrinsic Perk, called Excavation, allows you to hold the Fire button and shoot up to eight grenades. When you release the button, all the grenades will explode at the same time, covering a wide area in the blast radius. This won’t work so well against fast, agile enemies, but in other cases, the Prospector Exotic Grenade Launcher is a wreaker of havoc.

The barrel Perk, Volatile Launch, increases the blast radius, but slightly lowers handling and projectile speed. It has an Augmented Drum magazine, meaning it has a huge magazine, but the reload speed is decreased drastically. The Trait is basically what allows the Intrinsic Perk to happen, giving you Full Auto fire. The hand-laid stock gives you more recoil control, increasing stability.
