Destiny 2 Vexcalibur

Vexcalibur is a special Exotic glaive in Destiny 2, that deals Void damage and was introduced in Season of the Defiance.

The Vexcalibur perks and traits are:

  • Intrinsic Perk – M1R Distribution Matrix (I-IV)
  • Trait– Perpetual Loophole
  • Haft – Ballistic Tuning, Low-Impedance Windings, Tempered Truss Rod, Supercooled Accelerator, Auxiliary Reserves, Lightweight Emitter
  • Magazine – Extended Mag, Alloy Magazine, Appended Mag, Accurized Rounds, Swap mag, Light Mag
  • Stock – Hand-Laid Stock, Composite Stock, Fitted Stock, Short-Action Stock

The Intrinsic Perk here gives you an overshield while you are guarding and can be upgraded to give overshields to allies, Perpetual Loophole deals additional melee damage while you are protected by an overshield with the weapon. Defeating targets with the melee attack with the Glaive will then refresh your overshield if it is active.

How to get Destiny 2 Vexcalibur?

Vexcalibur in Destiny 2 is obtained by completing ‘The Variable’ Season of Defiance secret Exotic quest.

It is a weapon that is obtained at the end of the mission, which is a repurposed version of The Pyramidion strike on IO, which is no longer accessible. This mission started in the European Dead Zone in the Gulch. To get an idea and full walkthrough of it, check out our Destiny 2 The Variable guide.

Destiny 2 Vexcalibur crafting

After you obtain the Vexcalibur in Destiny 2, you are able to extract a pattern for it and craft it on Mars at The Enclave.

The crafting process will take place across Season 20, so you will need to continue to complete the follow-up Vexcalibur quests to be able to fully customise the glaive. Upgrades include the Destiny 2 Vexcalibur Catalyst and several Intrinsic upgrades found in secret chests during the AVALON mission.
