4. Tomorrow’s Answer

Could you please repeat the question? 

Here’s Tomorrow’s Answer, the answer to what question? If you’re asking if I’ll be paying off my student loans anytime soon, then the clear answer is no. The question it does answer is “how’s the random perks?” The answer is that they can be pretty good since this is one of the few that can roll Clown Cartridge which randomly fills your magazine with 2 rockets when you reload instead of one

Weapon Stats:

Impact: 95

Range: 51

Stability: 64

Handling: 79

Reload Speed: 69

Rounds/Min: 15

Magazine: 1


High-Impact Frame: Slow-firing and high-damage. This weapon is more accurate when stationary and aiming down sights.

Underdog: This weapon gains a boost to reload speed as your health gets lower.

Disruption Break: Breaking an enemy's shield with this weapon makes them more vulnerable to Kinetic damage for a brief period.

What makes Tomorrow's Answer good?

  • Can roll Clown Cartridge, helps for DPS via faster damage output
  • Good handling

You can get this rocket launcher as a random reward from Trials of Osiris

5. Death Bringer

"Sing them a lullaby of death and nothing more." 

This crow themed weapon has style but also some unorthodox power . Deathbringer is an exotic that releases void orbs that drop and explode on targets, and the longer it takes for the orbs to drop the more damage they do, which after getting over it’s learning curve you’ll be able to rain damage on bosses. It handles decently in crucible too, making it a good all around weapon if you’re willing to use an exotic rocket launcher.

Weapon Stats:

Impact: 100

Range: 42

Stability: 58

Handling: 69

Reload Speed: 67

Rounds/Min: 15

Magazine: 1

Dark Deliverance: Fires remotely detonated projectiles that drop Void orbs on combatants. : Fire; release to detonate.

Dark Descent: The further a Void orb falls, the more powerful it's detonation becomes.
