Destiny 2: Prospector Exotic Heavy Grenade Launcher perks

These are the fixed perks that the Prospector comes with in Destiny 2:

  • Volatile Launch
  • Hand-Laid Stock
  • Full Auto Trigger System
  • Augmented Drum

The trigger system works greatly with Exotic Trait Excavation that can launch grenades which latch onto surfaces. You can fire them up by releasing the trigger and the opponents catch fire.

The weapon has eight rounds in one clip with 19 shots overall. Players can increase the capacity by getting the Exotic Catalyst, which betters ammo to 23.

The weapon’s blast radius also gets more area to cover. The Prospector is great when inflicting a lot of damage within a minimum period of time, but its increased fire rate makes it harder to shoot moving targets. 

Thus, this is everything that players need to know about the Prospector Exotic Heavy Grenade Launcher. Players will enjoy using this beast in several battles where they need to deal heavy damage quickly and clear the battlefield.
