Darkness in the Light: Exploring Malfeasance Stats and Potential Perks

When it comes to Destiny 2, mastering the use of Exotics can be a bit challenging. Especially when it comes to obtaining and utilizing weapons like the Malfeasance hand cannon. But fear not! Our comprehensive Darkness in the Light Destiny 2 guide is here to help you on your quest for this powerful weapon.

Malfeasance is an Exotic hand cannon in Destiny 2 that inflicts Kinetic damage. Formerly available only to players with DLC, the quest to obtain this highly sought-after weapon is now open to all. The weapon’s main draw is its unique perk called Explosive Shadow, which unleashes tainted slugs that embed themselves in enemies and detonate when enough have been stacked.

With its impressive stability and firing rate of 180 rounds per minute, Malfeasance delivers devastating damage with every shot. While it may not have the largest magazine size, the explosive rounds more than make up for it. This weapon is a perfect choice for those looking to eliminate their foes in a spectacularly messy manner.

Darkness in the Light Guide

To embark on the quest for Malfeasance, called Darkness in the Light, you must first obtain The Seething Heart. It drops from an Ascendant Primeval during Gambit matches. Kill regular enemies until one spawns, defeat it, and then proceed with the questline. Here’s a quick overview of the steps once you have The Seething Heart:

  • The Seething Heart – Bring the Seething Heart to the Drifter.
