Destiny 2: Shadowkeep Exit Strategy Guide – Quest Steps & How-to Get!

We're taking a look at the Exit Strategy, which is one of Destiny 2's new Ritual Weapons that can be obtained in the Shadowkeep expansion! You'll need to complete a small quest to obtain this Submachine Gun.

Ritual Weapons have replaced the old Pinnacle Weapons that were popular among collectors. These new weapons will no longer have special perks and will instead feature curated rolls. This seems to be a way to keep things more fair across the board, and will make it easier to balance in the future.

"If you don't got one, it's time to make one." —The Drifter

Exit Strategy Perks List

  • Adaptive Frame - A well-rounded grip, reliable and sturdy.
  • Arrowhead Brake - Lightly vented barrel. Greatly controls recoil, increases handling speed.
  • Ricochet Rounds - Rounds ricochet off hard surfaces. Increases stability, slightly increases range.
  • Underdog - This weapon gains a boost to reload speed as your health gets lower.
