Another season, another round of Destiny 2 ritual weapons to grind for and collect. Season of Dawn adds three ritual weapons for Vanguard, Gambit and Crucible. In this guide we’ll go over all three weapons and what their perks in Destiny 2.
Ritual Weapons in Destiny 2: Season of Dawn
Vanguard Ritual Weapon: Buzzard Sidearm
The Buzzard is a Kinetic Adaptive Frame Sidearm that carries the following perks:
- Extended Barrel
- Alloy Magazine
- Outlaw or Fourth Time’s the Charm
- Osmosis or Swashbuckler
- Masterwork: Stability
While it might seem like Buzzard has a unique pinnacle-style perk in Osmosis, it doesn’t. Osmosis is a new perk being added to the pool of perks as of Season of the Dawn. Likely overtime more new weapons that are released in Destiny 2 will have this perk.
What it does is changes the element damage type of the weapon, in this case Buzzard, to match your current subclass whenever you use your grenade until you stow the weapon.
Considering Buzzard is in your Kinetic slot in a way you can run double energy weapons if you take advantage of Osmosis. If you want though you could roll with Swashbuckler if you’d prefer just a simpler damage increase from kills and melee kills.
How to Get Buzzard: Speak to Commander Zavala and accept the quest: “Anything That Moves” and complete the following objectives in Strikes:
- % of Final Blows with Sidearms
