The Traveler’s Chosen is an Exotic sidearm that was introduced during Season 12 of Destiny 2. Like other Exotic weapons in the game the perks of the Traveler’s Chosen are fixed, meaning everyone gets the same rolls on the weapon. If you want to see what those rolls are check them out below:

  • Gathering Light (Intrinsic Trait): Final blows with this weapon grant stacks of Gathering Light. R Press: Consume stacks, granting melee, grenade, and class ability energy based on the number of stacks.
  • Gift of the Traveler (Trait): Each stack of Gathering Light improves this weapon’s reload, handling, and target acquisition.
  • Quickdot SAS (Sight): Agile Sidearm sight. Greatly increases handling speed and slightly increases stability.
  • Armor-Piercing Rounds (Magazine): Rounds cause extra damage to combatants’ shields and overpenetrate targets. These bullets also slightly increase range.
  • Short-Action Stock (Stock): This weapon is especially easy to grip. With this grip handling speed is greatly increased.
