In Bungie’s May 11th TWAB, Bungie showcased the ritual weapon for Season 21 and its ornaments. Destiny 2 ritual weapons are some of the most versatile weapons in the game with great perk combinations that can be used for both PvP and PvE. Additionally, they come with the Origin Traits of all three ritual activities.
In Season 20, we got the Ecliptic Distaff, a Void Adaptive Glaive that comes with both Close to Melee and Destabilizing Rounds in the same column. It’s been quite a sleeper compared to the previously release ritual weapons like the Veles-X pulse rifle. But that’s more to do with it being a glaive than anything else. (Sorry glaive enthusiasts.)
Destiny 2 Last Rite
In Season 21, we are going to be getting the Last Rite Scout Rifle. According to Bungie, it is an Aggressive Scout Rifle in the Kinetic slot. The Tex Mechanica means that it will most likely have the Tex Balanced Stock Origin Trait – Damaging targets while firing from the hop increases handling, reload speed, and movement speed while aiming down sights. We’ll talk more about that Origin Trait further down the article.
Bungie doesn’t want to spoil too much right now about the Destiny 2 ritual weapons. We’ll definitely know more details like the attached perks closer to the season’s release date. For the time being, however, we get to see the ornaments that come with the gun.

Guardians will get access to these Destiny 2 Ritual weapons ornaments after resetting ritual vendors and reaching the end of the ritual rank track.

Last Rite Crucible ritual ornament
Last Rite Gambit ritual ornament
Destiny 2 Long Arm
So the reason why we think the Tex Balanced Stock Origin Trait is going to be on the Last Rite scout rifle. The new ritual weapon looks exactly like the Long Arm Aggressive scout rifle from the Spire of the Watcher dungeon.
The difference between them is that the Long Arm is an Arc scout in the Energy Slot and the Last Rite is going to be on the Kinetic Slot. The Last Rite is most likely going to function the same way but will have the damage that comes with being a Kinetic weapon.
The Long Arm has been called the Legendary version of the Dead Man’s Tale and for good reason. And while it doesn’t have that level of ease-of-use DMT enjoys, it does nevertheless hits like a truck when your shots connect.
And that’s everything we have on the Last Rite scout rifle and the Destiny 2 ritual weapons for right now. When the gun’s details have been released, we will have an in-depth look at the weapon and how best to use it in both PvP and PvE. So watch out for that. And don’t forget you can get all the previously released Destiny 2 ritual weapons at the Tower at the Monument of Lost Light Kiosk.
