Destiny 2 Love and Death Review

Bound Manacle in hand, Love and Death is yours. Here's a quick look at the Aggressive Frame Rocket Launcher's stats. The gun has a possible curated roll with Proximity Grenades, Rangefinder and Rampage, but there are also several random rolls as well.

Here are some of the key perks worth knowing:

  • Pulse Monitor
  • Moving Target
  • Genesis
  • Threat Detector
  • Rangefinder
  • Field Prep
  • Quickdraw
  • Full Court
  • Kill Clip
  • Ambitious Assassin

Overall, the Love and Death is a fairly strong launcher provided you get a solid roll with the right perks. That being said, much like many of Shadowkeep's other Essence weapons, this one is somewhat passable if you have another strong Legendary launcher with better abilities. Because it's so easy to obtain, though, all good Guardians should probably have one.

The Love and Death Launcher is just one of nine Essence weapons currently available in Destiny 2 Shadowkeep. So far, we have guides for the Arc Logic Auto-Rifle and Tranquility Sniper as well. Those looking for a quick Exotic might also want to try the Pain and Gain quest as well. It seems like none of these weapons will revolutionize the meta, but that may change as Guardians work through their advantages and possible god rolls.

Destiny 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
