The methods needed to unlock the Anarchy Exotic Grenade Launcher in Destiny 2 are difficult, though relatively straightforward in nature. First, the Anarchy Exotic Grenade Launcher weapon drop is exclusive to the Black Armory raid, Scourge of the Past. With a recommended Power Level of 640, Scourge of the Past is the final boss area in Black Armory.

By completing Scourge of the Past, you’ll have a chance to unlock the Anarchy Exotic Grenade Launcher, though receiving it is not guaranteed. As such, you may need to run through the raid multiple times before you get the Anarchy Exotic Grenade Launcher in Destiny 2. When approaching Scourge of the Past, it’s recommended that you and your team split up with one half covering the outer half of the raid, and the other half covering the inner part of the raid.

Outside, players will need to repeatedly kill Shanks, Vandals, and the Servitor before opening the electric gates. Meanwhile, the inside team will make their way underground using different entry points once the outside team has taken out the first Servitor. Inside, head right until you reach a generator depicting either a circle, square, or triangle symbol.

Warning that you don’t want to touch the red flashing symbol that seems to be glitching out, as you and your entire team will die. Seriously, don’t touch it, trust us. Instead, communicate with your team on which symbol you’re selecting from the available two that aren’t red so that your other teammates can pick symbols different from the one you’ve chosen.

When you reunite with your team, keep a safe distance from one another to avoid tether damage. After the outer team has lowered the gates, the inner team will work on dealing damage with their tanks. Keep dealing damage to the Metal Gear in the tanks until the counter reaches zero. At that point, the tanks will explode forcing you to exit them.

Continue dealing damage to the four arms holding down the Metal Gear until they’re destroyed. At this point, you’ll have reached the end of the first segment and can proceed to the next part of the Scourge of the Past raid dealing with the final boss form, Insurrection Prime. Defeat Insurrection Prime together as a team, and upon success, you’ll receive a reward drop with the Anarchy Exotic Grenade Launcher as a potential item.

If you receive the weapon on your first try, you’re all set and can begin testing out your new Anarchy Exotic Grenade Launcher. If not, you’ll simply need to repeat the Scourge of the Past raid until you receive the weapon as a drop. Again, while the process is pretty straightforward, it can be annoying to have to run through the raid multiple times in order to get the Anarchy Exotic Grenade Launcher.

Of course, if you really want the item and have a Power Level at 640 and above (same goes for your teammates), the Scourge of the Past raid shouldn’t be too difficult to handle. So, were you able to get the Anarchy Exotic Grenade Launcher after your first run of Scourge of the Past? What do you think of the weapon? Let us know down in the comments below!
