Destiny 2: Forsaken data mine reveals new and returning exotics in the expansion

Some of these new pieces could be very powerful come Sept. 4

Destiny 2: Forsaken - two Guardians, with one aiming a bow Bungie, High Moon Studios/Activision
Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

Destiny 2: Forsaken’s 2.0 pre-patch is only a few days old, but already players have begun to datamine the new information released. Despite only being a pre-patch, v2.0 contains much of the Forsaken expansion itself. Destiny redditor ninth_reddit_account put together a list of all the new data-mined exotics coming in Forsaken.

Here is the full list of data-mined Forsaken exotics from that post.


Cerberus+1, kinetic auto rifle — “Four-Headed Dog: Shoots erratic bullets from all gun barrels at the same time.”

Wish-Ender, kinetic bow — “Queen’s Wrath: While aiming down sights with a fully-drawn bow, enemies behind walls are highlighted.”

Trinity Ghoul, energy Arc bow — “Split Electron: Fires an arrow that splits when released. Aiming down sights and fully drawing the bow both decrease the spread.”

One Thousand Voices, power Solar fusion rifle — “Ahamkara’s Eye: Charging this weapon unleashes a giant continuous beam of death.”

Malfeasance, kinetic hand cannon — “Explosive Shadow: Shoot tainted slugs that burrow into the enemy. Stacking enough slugs causes them all to explode.”

Ace of Spades*, kinetic hand cannon — “Memento Mori: Reloading after a kill loads magazine with a few extra-damage bullets. Grants radar while aiming down sights.”

The Queenbreaker*, power Arc linear fusion rifle — “Wire Rifle: Fires a long-range precision Arc bolt that blinds enemies on hit.”

Two-Tailed Fox, power Void rocket launcher — “Twintails: Shoots two rockets, one Void and one Solar, that can track onto the same target.”

The Chaperone*, kinetic shotgun — “Precision Slug: Fires a single-slug precision round.”

Lord of Wolves*, energy Solar shotgun — “Shrapnel Launcher: Fires a powerful short-range burst of Solar damage.”

Black Talon, power Void sword — “Crow’s Wings: Press the attack button twice to fire off a projectile cross combo.”

Wavesplitter, energy Void trace rifle — “Harmonic Laser: Laser damage has three power levels that oscillate while the trigger is held down.”

*Indicates a returning exotic from Destiny. In the case of The Queenbreaker, it could be a new exotic. However, Queenbreaker’s Bow from Destiny fits the description here very closely, leaving us to believe that it is the same exotic.



Gwisin Vest, chest armor — “Roving Assassin: Each Spectral Blades kill you make before going into stealth will restore more of your Super energy.”

The Sixth Coyote, chest armor — “Double Dodge: Gain a second dodge charge.”

Oathkeeper, gauntlets — “Adamantine Brace: Bows charge faster, and charges can be held indefinitely.”

Shards of Galanor, gauntlets — “Sharp Edges: Hits and kills with Blade Barrage will return Super energy after the Super ends.”


Heart of Inmost Light, chest armor — “Overflowing Light: Using a grenade, melee, or Barricade ability empowers you, granting increased damage and resistance. While empowered, the next ability you use has faster regen.”

Ursa Furiosa, gauntlets — “Ursine Guard: Move faster while guarding when Sentinel Shield is active. Guarded damage converts to Super energy when the Super ends.”

One-Eyed Mask, helmet — “Vengeance: Marks the enemy that dares to damage you. Track down and destroy your enemy for increased damage and overshield.”

Antaeus Wards, leg armor — “Reflective Vents: Improved slide. Sliding reflects incoming projectiles. Reflecting projectiles grant Super energy.”


Chromatic Fire, chest armor — “Crystalline Transistor: Precision kills with your Kinetic weapon create an explosion in the element of your equipped subclass.”

Phoenix Protocol, chest armor — “Battle-Hearth: Kills and assists you make while standing in your Well of Radiance return Super energy.”

Contraverse Hold, gauntlets — “Chaotic Exchanger: Charging your grenade with Chaos Accelerant, Consume, or Radioactive will give damage resist. Charged grenade hits return a random amount of grenade energy.”

Geomag Stabilizers, leg armor — “Close Enough: When Chaos Reach Super energy is almost full, sprinting tops it off. Damaging enemies with Chaos Reach extends its duration.”

It’s worth noting that these exotics will likely have several other perks feeding into them. Ninth_reddit_account also assures players in their post that this is not the full list of exotics, and that some are being hidden. Players will to wait and uncover the rest of the game’s exotics after Forsaken is released on Sept. 4 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
