How to get The Manticore Exotic SMG in Destiny 2

The most fun we've had since Tractor Cannon.

The Manticore Exotic SMG is a unique weapon that functions like a jetpack with bullets. When you damage enemies while on the ground, you charge up your jetpack. If you jump while firing at enemies, you remain suspended in mid-air, similar to the Warlock ability Winged Sun. The Manticore is tons of fun in PvE, and has the potential to catch enemies off-guard in PvP. Here's how to get The Manticore Exotic SMG in Destiny 2.

If you bought the Pass for Season 19, The Manticore is unlocked automatically on rank one. This allows you to experiment with new Exotic weapons right when they come out. To claim this reward, open the Season 19 tab in the Director menu, and select The Manticore. You do not need to earn any XP to obtain this weapon, as it is available as soon as the Season Pass releases.
