Destiny 2 Osteo Striga Guide – How to Unlock Osteo Striga, Details So Far

The White Wolf could handle this.

Not too long to go until Destiny 2‘s The Witch Queen arrives, and with it myriad additions tagging along. If you haven’t already, there is still time to prepare for the expansion, including a weapon that you should grab ASAP and catching up on everything that is being vaulted.

While the bulk of the expansion is yet to be revealed, there are details regarding a new SMG roaming around. This guide will explain everything we know about Destiny 2 Osteo Striga, aside from its kickass name.

How to Unlock Osteo Striga in Destiny 2

At the moment, everyone who purchases Destiny 2: The Witch Queen Deluxe Edition will unlock Osteo Striga automatically. This includes the base exotic SMG, as well as a catalyst and ornament.

If you’re curious, the deluxe edition also grants you access to seasons 16 to 19, two dungeons released in Year 5, and the Throne World exotic sparrow. In case it’s worth mentioning, purchasing either the Deluxe Edition 30th Anniversary Bundle or the Collector’s Edition will give you all the aforementioned benefits, as well.

That being said, Bungie is yet to detail whether or not players who purchase the Standard Edition will also be given access with another method. The pulse rifle No Time To Explain is a similar example that comes to mind — this weapon was bundled exclusively with Beyond Light‘s own Deluxe Edition. Nowadays, if you want to obtain it, you need to either purchase said edition or the standard edition plus the season pass.

It may be different for the Osteo Striga this time around, and you may find it inside exotic engrams after a certain period of time. Who knows? Until further confirmation, this is the only known method so far.

Everything We Know About Destiny 2 Osteo Striga

So what’s the deal with Osteo Striga, anyway? Well, there is yet to be a proper breakdown or showcase of the weapon, but Bungie has already been teasing what to expect from the weapon.

First of all, you can see the exotic SMG in the trailer premiered during The Game Awards 2021. It’s only for a couple of seconds (head over to the 0:53 time mark) but it’s definitely an intriguing sight. There’s a clip below as well, courtesy of DestinyTracker on Twitter:

Over at Reddit, users have already begun to theorize about the weapon’s naming. More importantly, they made an interesting mention regarding the short clip, as it’s a short teaser of what the Osteo Striga perk is, producing necrotic grip explosions.

We only have to wait for a couple more weeks to see how the SMG will impact the game, but I have the hunch we’ll be seeing it often in Strikes.

It’s not uncommon for developer Bungie to debut new weapons in season and expansion launches. Recently, the 30th Anniversary Event hosted the comeback of the exotic rocket launcher Gjallarhorn, as well as a catalyst for it (you can still pick these up if you haven’t).
