The grind is real in Destiny 2 but if you have been playing the game since it first came out then by now you must know the basic dynamics of the game and must have reached somewhere between power level 280-305. Here we are going to talk about the best grenade launchers in Destiny 2 so far. As The Curse of Osiris is not out yet we are not including items that will be included in the DLC.
There are loads and loads of weapons in Destiny 2 and the game does not do a good job at describing what perks the weapons have. Having that said, you can easily dismantle a weapon that is way better than what you are currently using. This guide should help you figure out which grenade launchers you need to keep and which ones to get rid of.
Without further delay, let’s get into the best grenade launchers in Destiny 2.
Destiny 2: Best Grenade Launchers
The best grenade launchers in Destiny 2 are as follows:
Destiny 2 Best Grenade Launchers: Berenger’s Memory
One of the perks of this grenade launcher is sticky grenades. Not only to the grenades stick to enemies but the floors and walls as well. This makes it a great weapon for tactical attacks. This can come in handy in PVP as well. Another cool perk is that it can reload on its own when holstered. This means that you need to worry about having to reload the weapon when you switch to it after some time in an intense situation.
This grenade launcher can be found from Io, Gunsmith, Faction and random drop Legendary engrams. This is a rare weapon and the only other weapon that has the sticky grenade perk is the Stampede Mk.32.
Destiny 2 Best Grenade Launchers: Play of the Game
One of the perks of this weapon is Proximity Grenades. This means that the grenades will only go off when the enemy is close. This can make it a great tactical weapon in PVP. If you are running away from an enemy then this weapon can come in handy. Play of the Game is great in close quarters and it is preferred over a rocket launcher in such cases.
You can get this weapon from the Crucible Engrams. There is no weapon that we know of that has the same perks as the Play of the Game.
Destiny 2 Best Grenade Launchers: Flash and Thunder
This grenade launcher has 2 perks that can be useful in both PVP and PVE. The Flash causes a blinding effect that can disorient enemies in PVP as well as PVE. Thunder causes concussions and can also be a game changer in PVP. Anyone you hit with Thunder is not going anywhere for the next couple of seconds, this can lead to an easy kill especially in the Crucible.
This grenade launcher can be found in EDZ, Gunsmith, Faction and random drop Legendary engrams. Truthteller also has the concussion grenades but it does not have the Flash effect.
Destiny 2 Best Grenade Launchers: Fighting Lion
The Fighting Lion is one of the best Exotic launchers in Destiny 2. One of the perks of this launcher is that the projectiles only explode when the trigger is released which can produce a huge area of effect and damage per second. This is a great weapon for controlling mobs. You can get this item from Exotic engrams and Xur.
