The Destiny 2 Manticore, known as one of the most extraordinary exotic weapons in the game’s history, has finally arrived in the Season of the Seraph. This guide will provide you with all the information you need to acquire the Manticore Exotic SMG, including its catalyst, base perks, and how to unlock the powerful Flying Monster.
A Dynamic Universe to Explore
Destiny 2 offers a dynamic and ever-changing multiplayer experience that allows you to team up with friends and explore a vast universe. As a live service game, Destiny 2 undergoes regular updates, bug fixes, and content additions to ensure fairness and balance for players. Each season, Bungie introduces new catalysts and weaponry, often through unique challenges or in-game events.
The Destiny 2 Manticore Exotic SMG
This season, Destiny 2 introduces the Manticore Exotic SMG, offering a unique perspective on airborne battles. With its high shooting rate and accuracy, the Manticore allows players to briefly float in the air while unleashing a hail of bullets on their opponents. The base perks of the Manticore include Arrowhead Brake, Ricochet Rounds, Swooping Talons, Fitted Stock, and Soaring Fang.
The Arrowhead Brake barrel enhances handling and reduces recoil, while Ricochet Rounds increase stability and range. The Fitted Stock perk reduces handling speed but also decreases recoil and increases stability. Swooping Talons improves the weapon’s ability to deal airborne damage. Lastly, the intrinsic trait Soaring Fang charges antigrav repulsors when airborne, dealing damage while on the ground.
Unlocking the Manticore Exotic in Destiny 2
Obtaining the Manticore Exotic SMG is a straightforward process that allows you to add this powerful weapon to your inventory for both PvE and PvP gameplay:
- Reach Rank 35 on the Season of the Seraph reward track by gaining experience through gameplay.
- Alternatively, you can purchase the Season Pass for 1,000 Silver ($9.99 US) to unlock the Manticore.
- Once acquired, you can immediately start using the weapon in battle.
For free-to-play gamers, the Manticore becomes available at level 35 in the Season of the Seraph. Leveling up quickly can be achieved by successfully completing seasonal challenges and bounties. After obtaining the Void SMG, Banshee-44 in the Tower will provide the catalyst.
The Manticore Exotic Catalyst: Flying Monster
The Manticore Exotic Catalyst, known as the Flying Monster, grants damage resistance for each weapon’s final strike in the air. To unlock this catalyst, known as Volantes Violentium, you must complete three key processes:
- Take out 50 targets using the Manticore while in the air.
- Defeat additional targets by calibrating inside numerous actions.
- Submit your completed quests.
The second step is where the real grind begins, and running Nightfall Strikes is the most efficient way to complete this task. Higher-tier activities offer faster calibration and kill progress, making the third step more manageable. Once all three steps are completed, you will receive the Flying Monster catalyst, which can be unlocked by achieving more kills.
