Best Grenade Launchers in Destiny 2

Mentioned below are some of the most powerful Grenade launchers:

Deafening Whisper

This Energy-type legendary weapon has the strongest blast radius out of all. This grenade launcher is the best and perhaps the strongest for PvE matches. It also has an exceptionally quick reload speed and can shoot 72 rounds per minute. You can get Deafening Whisper by completing the Wrathborn Hunts with a prey lure or the Crow Rank-up packages.


Although it is a Grenade Launcher, Parasite is a disguised Rocket launcher that blasts off enemies. It has a single magazine and is best suitable for PvE matches. If you are grinding in a challenging dungeon, you can trust this weapon to damage hordes of enemies anytime. But coming to the PvP matches, it has a much slower reload speed.


This rare-type Kinetic grenade launcher fires away blight upon enemies and the proximity. When the blight sticks to an enemy, it will deal with damage over time. So, you can use the Witherhoard for controlling the area. You can get this weapon by purchasing it from the Exotic Kiosk in the Tower for 1 Exotic Cipher, 1 Ascendant Shard, and 100,000 Glimmer.

Lingering Dread
