While you can sit in a pool of tears and mourn what’s been lost, we’re going to show you how to get Frozen Orbit in Destiny 2 in this guide and dry your eyes instead.

How to get Frozen Orbit in Destiny 2

Getting your hands on Frozen Orbit has a lot to do with RNG and your relationship with Shaxx. It’s a weapon that will only drop from Crucible rewards. So you need to jump into the Crucible playlist and plough through as many matches as you can stand to.

You can also pick up the weapon from reputation reward packages. You get these by turning in reputation tokens. Just keep doing that and the weapon will probably drop all by itself.

Of course, the best way to increase your chances of getting Frozen Orbit is by increasing your reputation in the Crucible. Play as many matches as you can, complete all the bounties on offer, and just get through it.

What If I Hate Crucible?

I go through fits of loving Crucible, and spates of hating it. If you want to change your mindset to help you pick this Sniper Rifle up, try thinking of your quest to get it as I do.

First, you’re trying to get a weapon that will improve your overall experience of Destiny 2. Second, by playing Crucible matches, you’re completing the weekly challenges, which is always a good thing. Finally, you can scrap all the other rewards and use them to boost your other weapons, such as Ticuu’s Divination.

I'm an avid Destiny 2 fan and player. I fell in love with Destiny 1 during the early alpha and have been hooked by the universe ever since. I really enjoy playing with other Guardians, speculating about the lore, and writing about as much of the Destiny universe as I can.
