Whether it’s for PvE or PvP, boss DPS or add clearing, or if you’re just looking to have some fun, there’s a grenade launcher for you to use in Destiny 2’s different game modes and activities.

The grenade launcher archetype is home to some of the coolest and most unique Exotic weapons in the game, too. There’s a lot of good times to be had roaming around the open world with some of these guns.
