Destiny 2 Ex Diris: The Season of the Witch Exotic grenade launcher Ex Diris.

Destiny 2 Ex Diris is the latest Exotic weapon in Season of the Witch, boasting one-of-a-kind perks and traits that make this a fun weapon to add to your collection. But, how do you get Ex Diris in Destiny 2 Season 22? Well, you’re in the right place to find out everything about this powerful new Exotic weapon.

Destiny 2’s Ex Diris isn’t the only new weapon you can get your hands on in Season 22 though. Check out all the Destiny 2 Season of the Witch weapons and the best guns from this season to know what else is up for grabs. Like last season’s Destiny 2 Centrifuse Exotic auto rifle, Ex Diris is another unique Exotic worth adding to your collection.

Destiny 2 Ex Diris perks and traits

The Destiny 2 Ex Diris Exotic Arc Energy grenade launcher comes with the following perks and traits:

  • Corrupted Nucleosynthesis – This weapon enrages when dealing or taking sustained damage, gaining increased rate of fire while enraged.
  • Loyal Moths – Final blows with this weapon create a loyal moth. The moth will seek out nearby targets and detonate, damaging and blinding them.
  • Nucleosynthetic Magazine – This magazine continuously draws ammo from reserves. The magazine also enables firing Arc projectiles that detonate on impact.
  • Volatile Launch – This weapon is optimized for an especially explosive payload.
  • Hand-Laid Stock – This weapon is optimized for recoil control.

This Exotic grenade launcher has some unique perks that make it strong for tougher enemies. Notably, taking or dealing sustained damage will enrage the weapon, causing it to increase in fire-rate, which is great against high health foes. On the other hand, final blows will create a loyal moth that can damage and blind nearby enemies, also making it a great pick groups of enemies.

While it could rank among the best Destiny 2 weapons, it’s unlikely to take a spot next to the best Destiny 2 PvP weapons, as it’s generally tricky for grenade launchers to make it into the meta outside of a select few. However, the loyal moths perk could be useful in certain scenarios in Trials when players are grouped together.

How to get Ex Diris in Destiny 2

Ex Diris in Destiny 2 can be obtained by reaching rank 1 in the paid season pass or rank 35 in the free season pass for Season of the Witch.

For those with the paid Season 22 pass, this weapon is a breeze to get. Simply open the seasonal reward track and claim the weapon right away. Thankfully, it’s not too much harder for those with the free Season 22 pass either, as it’s unlocked relatively early on. To get it quicker though, be sure to complete the seasonal narrative, season challenges, and lots of bounties to quickly earn XP to level up.

Destiny 2 Ex Diris Catalyst

To get the Ex Diris Catalyst in Destiny 2, you will likely need to complete a quest obtained from the Gunsmith after acquiring the weapon.

While it’s unknown what the Ex Diris Catalyst currently does, it will no doubt be a powerful upgrade to the weapon that’s worth chasing, especially if you’re a big fan of the weapon. After all, what’s better than a weapon you already love getting even stronger? And perhaps the Catalyst will be just enough to bring around those who aren’t such big fans of the base weapon.

That’s everything you need to know about the Destiny 2 Ex Diris, from how to get it and the Ex Diris Catalyst, to all the perks and traits that make it deserving of the Exotic weapon category. With the Destiny 2 The Final Shape release date only two seasons away, we’re going to need all the help we can get.
