The Ascendancy is now the Best DPS Rocket Launcher in Destiny 2...
After a brand new BUFF, we now have a New Best PvE Rocket Launcher in Destiny 2: Season of the Lost! Well, arguably 2! These are now the BEST when it comes to Rocket Launcher DPS!

--- *NEW MERCH*:


New video, Showcasing the Ascendancy Rocket Launcher, the new Ritual Weapon (and somewhat the Hothead Nightfall Weapon), during Destiny 2: Season of the Lost. This is after the new Witch Queen Gameplay Trailer, and Bungie 30th Anniversary Event Reveal during the Destiny 2 Showcase Event during Year 4 of Destiny 2: Beyond Light in the most recent Bungie TWAB! The new Destiny 2 Season 15, Season of the Lost is out now for PC, the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PS5! But today, we are going over the massive Buff to the "Explosive Light" perk! This spawns on the Ascendancy Season 15 Ritual Weapon, and "The Hothead" new Nightfall Weapon! These are now the Best DPS Rocket Launchers, and some of the best dps weapons in Destiny 2!

    Hothead with field prep and explosive light will be better for dps cause of the insane crouch reload speed

    I already know none of this will matter once the gjallarhorn gets here however luckily for me I need a legendary rocket launcher and I just unlocked this yesterday. My primary weapon is the scepter. This rocket launcher felt strong to me but because I'm a new destiny player I've only been playing for like a week I wasn't sure if it was actually worth it or not I was only using it because I needed a heavy weapon that wasn't exotic for a grenade launcher. I wanted the sleeper stimulant before they release the scepter and now I'm in love with the scepter. My only issue with this rocket launcher is Kelly reload after every shot but I guess it would be as powerful if it could have more in the magazine right?!

    No it's not. It's important to distinguish DPS from overal damage, clown cartridge is superior for dps, especially combined with a hunter dodge or demo. This rocket is probably the best overal damage legendary rocket though.

    Does ARGENT ORDNANCE MOD increase more damage for rocket launchers? Like does it stack with ASCENDANCY? I use it but haven't done big testing to know for sure..

  • Brandon P

    Ummm test this against cluster bomb rocket launcher

  • Videome123

    Another thing to note that you didn't talk about. If you want to add more dmg to ur rockets and you run argent ordanace or w/e it's called. The problem with lasting impression rockets. It takes 2 charges of lights, since 1 rocket detonates twice. With explosive light, I'm assuming it will only use 1 make explosive light and argents stack well with each other. But!! Depending on the "activity" an overflow/Vorpal hezen vengeance rocket still has great utility to it. Grab special or heavy ammo to start off with 2 rockets, and if ur standing in front of ammo, you can shoot another 2 rockets. Allowing you to shot 4 possibly 6 quick rockets with ease without reloading.

    Rocket Launchers are most likely also going to be the big focus next season. Have you noticed how ritual weapons are becoming Meta the next season? Salvagers Salvo, next season comes breach and clear. Null composure, then this season there’s particle deconstruction. Then especially with Gjallerhorn coming back out in December 👀

    Mines going to sit in my vault till they make rockets more usable, fusion rifles are the low slot high DPS strats atm rockets can’t even compete unless I’m wanting something that can slap for solo play where I want to keep my distance. This with Argent is great but lasting impression and impulse on something that doesn’t need orbs with same build is just way better. Sticking a invading guardian with a rocket that gives them time to say “Oh Fuck!?!” before it nukes them gives me the “Haha” vibes I missed from Halo and Plasma nade sticks 😈

    I tested the ascendancy vs. my godrolled Timelost Hezen's with Vorpal on Karl on the Nessus lost sector and the dmg numbers were Identical. 86k+27k, so 114k dmg on both. Bungie lied about the buff to ascendancy and noone's covering it, perhaps you should @RickKackis.

    • JL AkA Great 1
      JL AkA Great 1

      The Hezen has more impact than the Acendancy, so that could be the difference between your verbal roll and explosive light. Hezen 5% more impact + vorpal 20% damage increase= 25% which what the explosive light damage increase is

    Would mind doing a DPS breakdown of the new Exotic, Ager's Scepter? With Stasis elemental well/charged with light build? The gun melts Unstoppable and Overload champs in its own right without stunning them. Curious to see what the exact number of damage would be.
