But, you may be wondering exactly what you can do to get the weapon in Destiny 2 and how long it will take you. Thankfully, this guide will help you out so you can add another one of the Destiny 2 Strand weapons to your arsenal to complement your Destiny 2 Strand subclasses.

Destiny 2 Final Warning perks and traits

Final Warning is a Destiny 2 sidearm that deals Strand damage.

  • All At Once – Holding down the trigger marks targets within range and loads multiple bullets, which fire in a burst with increased stability on trigger release. Hitting a marked target with a fully charged burst will unravel them
  • Pick Your Poison – While hipfiring projectiles will track marked targets, dealing increased body shot damage on impact. While aiming projectiles have greatly increased velocity and deal extra critical hit damage to marked targets
  • Hammer Forged Rifling – Double ranged barrel. Increased range
  • Flared Magwell – Optimised for faster reloading. Slightly increased stability and greatly increased reload speed
  • Combat Grip – The weapon’s recoil direction is more vertical. Greatly controls recoil.

Final Warning’s base stats include a 21-round magazine, with a 450 rounds-per-minute fire rate. It has a speedy reload as well at just 1.88 seconds.
