One of the better linear fusion rifles you can own in Destiny 2 is the Arbalest. It’s a rare kinetic linear fusion that has an exotic perk that will rip enemy shields off quite easily. Here’s how to get Arbalest as of Destiny 2: Season of the Dawn and any other future seasons.
How to Get Arbalest in Destiny 2
Arbalest was once obtainable via a timed quest during Destiny 2 Year 2’s spring event, The Revelry. However, once that event ended, the quest was no longer available.
