How to get Anarchy Exotic grenade launcher in Destiny 2

Learn how to unlock Anarchy, a powerful Exotic grenade launcher in Destiny 2.


Getting the Anarchy Exotic grenade launcher in Destiny 2 is not going to be the easiest task for a lot of players, as it’s locked behind some of the game’s most challenging and demanding content. However, players will no doubt want to get their hands on it, as it is one of the most unique weapons in the game.

The only way players can get the Anarchy Exotic grenade launcher is to complete the Scourge of the Past raid. This raid has only just released, meaning a large portion of the playerbase will be far too underpowered to even attempt a clear. In fact, the recommended Power of the Scourge of the Past raid is Power 640.

This is obviously a huge barrier for entry, and those who do want to unlock the Anarchy Exotic grenade launcher have a long path ahead of them. To make matters worse, given that Anarchy isn’t attached to a quest means it is a random drop, so even if you manage to complete the raid, there is no guarantee of receiving it.

However, if none of this has deterred you in your goal to acquire this hilarious Exotic grenade launcher, then more power to you, literally. Start getting more Power. This can be accomplished by focusing on activities that reward the best Powerful Gear engrams, this will ensure that you level up fast. The sooner the maximum Power level is reached, the easier it will be to breeze through the Scourge of the Past raid and acquire Anarchy.

Anarchy's main perk, Arc Traps, creates a web of Arc lightning that can quickly off any opponent.

For those scratching their heads over why the Anarchy Exotic grenade launcher is so highly sought after, one look at the perks should explain that. Instead of firing grenades that explode on impact or after bouncing, Anarchy fires tripmines into the ground that connect together with Arc lightning. These Arc wires pulse fast enough to kill any player in a matter of seconds. Though not one of the best weapons in standard Crucible, its strengths lie in area-of-denial.

Getting your hands on the Anarchy Exotic grenade launcher requires playing through and completing the Scourge of the Past raid, and even then it’s a random drop. Players should start finishing the raid each week, and even complete it on multiple characters, to have the best shot at getting Anarchy.
