Destiny 2 Dead Messenger: Crafting the Perfect Arsenal with Vox Obscura

Destiny’s Exotic Wave-frame Grenade Launcher, the Dead Messenger, has made its return and it’s now fully craftable. However, obtaining the optimal version requires more than just a casual trip to the vault. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll delve into the craftable god roll, catalyst, and how you can acquire the Dead Messenger in Destiny 2.

Unlocking the Craftable Dead Messenger

With the Season of the Witch, Bungie has introduced the Exotic Mission Rotator. This weekly activity revives old missions and rewards you with a new craftable variant of an existing Exotic weapon. Vox Obscura, the second exotic quest in rotation, is the gateway to obtaining the Dead Messenger. Unlike its previous iteration in Season 16, Dead Messenger is now craftable and features an enhanced intrinsic trait.

To unlock the craftable Dead Messenger, you need to complete one run of Vox Obscura on Normal difficulty. Access this Exotic quest through the Legends section of the Destinations tab when it’s the featured weekly mission. Upon finishing Vox Obscura for the first time, you’ll be awarded a Red Border variant of Dead Messenger. Extract the pattern from Dead Messenger through the Weapon Mods interface, and voila! You’ll have a craftable weapon waiting for you at The Enclave in Savathun’s Throne World.

Obtaining the Dead Messenger Catalyst

The Dead Messenger catalyst can be acquired by completing one run of Vox Obscura on Legend difficulty. Legend difficulty is set at 1830 Power and comes with Equipment Locked, requiring players to defeat both Barrier and Unstoppable Champions.

Once you obtain the catalyst as a drop, applying it to Dead Messenger is a breeze. Simply add the Turnabout perk at The Enclave in Savathun’s Throne World. Players who obtained the catalyst prior to the release of the Exotic Mission Rotator will already have access to it.

Unleashing the Power of Trinary Vision

The Trinary Vision upgrades for Dead Messenger can be obtained by completing runs of Vox Obscura on any difficulty after acquiring the pattern. After acquiring the catalyst, it will require two completions of Vox Obscura to acquire the remaining upgrades. Each completion rewards one extra tier up, and the upgrades are not time-gated, allowing you to earn them in a single go.

Unlocking Fourth Slot Trait Upgrades

To unlock the fourth slot traits, complete subsequent runs of Vox Obscura on Legendary difficulty after obtaining the Catalyst. Once unlocked, you’ll have the option to choose from Thresh, Unrelenting, and Demolitionist. Each trait offers unique benefits, catering to Dead Messenger’s proficiency in add clearing and taking out multiple combatants with a single shot.

The God Roll for PvE & PvP

With the craftable nature of Dead Messenger in Destiny 2, players have the freedom to create their own version of the perfect arsenal, making this Exotic Grenade Launcher much more versatile. Since Blast Radius has no effect on Wave-frame Grenade Launchers, prioritizing Velocity and Handling is essential for both PvE and PvP encounters.

Our recommended Dead Messenger PvE God Roll is as follows:

  • Intrinsic: Trinary Vision III
  • Barrel: Quick Launch
  • Basic Trait 1: High-Velocity Rounds
  • Basic Trait 2: Demolitionist
  • Unique Trait: The Fundamentals
  • Catalyst: Turnabout
  • Stock: Short-Action Stock
