Salvation’s Grip: How to Obtain the Stasis Grenade Launcher in Destiny 2 Beyond Light
How to get this creepy new Stasis weapon!
For many eager fans the Stasis grenade launcher was thought to have been the raid Exotic, but after trekking through the snow on November 10th it was discovered to be its own end of campaign quest. Salvation’s Grip is the first Exotic weapon to wield the new element of darkness known as stasis, and while many may already have this gun or are already working towards it I’m here to provide a play by play for those who haven’t yet started their journey on the icy moon of Europa.
Your first step is a little unexpected. After you beat the campaign and get all of your quests and goodies from Variks and the Exo Stranger, head to the tower and speak to your old pal Drifter. He’s going to give you a blueprint for a prototype weapon that him, Eris, & the Stranger found in their expedition. Then you’ll head to Europa to kill Captains and Servitors, but don’t worry those other quests will help you hunt those down.
Those silly Variks missions aren’t just for post-story fluff. You’ll need to complete Reclaiming Europa, Empire’s Fall, & the Dark Priestess in order to properly end the House of Salvation’s reign of terror.
Next up is to get 100 kills with or on stasis afflicted foes. My fire team did this in strike playlists, but I’ve been told taking a jog around the Dreaming City works just as well. After that you’ll want to meet Spider’s Associate in the Concealed avoid Lost Sector located in the Asterion Abyss. Then you’ll go speak to the Drifter once more.
Finally, you’ll receive a mission entitled Stealing Stasis. After traveling throughout the mission eliminating fallen and vex alike you’ll craft the Salvation’s Grip. The back half of the mission is a firefight where your fireteam, while being aided by the Spider’s forces, will take down an attack by the House of Salvation while using your new grenade launcher. Pay close attention in this mission, your ghost will deliver a one ghost stand-up routine; it’s priceless.
Overview of Salvation’s Grip
This grenade launcher is an ice filled T-shirt cannon. It’s one of the most fun Exotics in game. You can launch glaciers at your enemies by holding down the trigger. Not only is it devastating to freeze and shatter your foes it can also be used for additional platforming when needed, but the best part is when you catch the unexpected Guardian trying to enter a room that you freeze the doorway shut. Hope all of you Guardians have an “ice time” playing with your personal snowblowers; I know I am.
