It’s also pretty strange-looking: it has a makeshift vibe, but with fancy gold ornaments like wings and Anubis heads. It can be obtained as a random drop, and in this guide we’ll list some activities that have been known to reward players with Destiny 2 Vigilance Wing exotic pulse rifle, and show you its stats and perks.

How to get Vigilance Wing exotic weapon?

At the moment, the only known way to obtain the Vigilance Wing is through exotic engrams. Hopefully there’s a quest later on (maybe in the rumored Osiris-themed expansion later this year?) that’ll help us get it without grinding, but for now you’ll have to make do with endlessly repeating the same activities until you get what you want. Some players have reported they got it from playing public events in the Europead Dead Zone, so maybe start from there.

As for what the gun does, it has an intrinsic perk called Harsh Truths, which makes it shoot in bursts of five bullets. It also increases your health regeneration and movement speed whenever a teammate dies near you. If you ever decide to chicken out and run away when your fireteam starts dropping like flies, this is the weapon to use. It’s a kinetic weapon, and it reloads faster when you spend the entire magazine.

One magazine can hold 50 bullets, which is enough for ten bursts. That’s a pretty hefty mag there, and the reload speed when you empty it completely is insane. The recoil is no worse than on other pulse rifles, which is especially nice considering the extra two bullets you fire per burst. If you’re into pulse rifles, this is one we’d recommend any time.

Keep in mind that engrams are tied to your current power level, which means that the weapon will be slightly more powerful than what you’re using when you find it. If it looks like a gun you’d like to use a bit longer, it’s better to save it for later.
