Destiny 2 – How to get Deafening Whisper (Legendary Grenade Launcher) plus PVE/PVP god rolls and Lore

Deafening Whisper is a Legendary Energy Grenade Launcher. This is a Wave Frame, One-shot handheld Grenade Launcher. Projectiles release a wave of energy when they contact the ground. This is a void grenade launcher and takes special ammo.

Looking at the stats it has 44 for stability, 75 for handling, 73 for reload speed, 68 for velocity and 55 for blast radius. It’s a 72 rounds per minute grenade launcher with 1 in the magazine.

The curated roll comes with Smart Drift Control for the increase in stability, handling speed and projectile speed, Proximity Grenades where grenades fired from this have proximity detection, Killing Wind where final blows improve mobility, weapon range, and handling for a short duration and finally Rampage where kills with the weapon grant increased damage and stack up to three times.

For PVE Lead from Gold were picking up heavy ammo also grants ammo and Rampage is a good pick. For PVP Killing Wind and Wellspring would be a nice pick. The most popular roll for this at the moment is Ambitious Assassin and Wellspring.

To get this weapon you have to run Wrathborn Hunts, the new seasonal activity from Season of the Hunt. This can be a drop from the end, or ranking up at The Crow. To get access to Wrathborn Hunts you have to complete the opening mission of Season of the Hunt, run through the Wrathborn Hunt tutorial mission and then run some Wrathborn Hunts. I got one to drop for me on my first hunt, and then again from a rank up package from Crow, so the drops seem to be fairly generous.

This is the second Wave Frame Grenade Launcher Martyr’s Retribution, from Season of Dawn. Generally I’m not too keen on Grenade Launchers, I don’t seem to ever get the trick with them, but this one looks like it could be effective mainly in PVE.

Finally today, let’s check out the lore on the weapon.

Deafening Whisper Lore

“The right message is loud at any volume.” —Osiris

The Acolyte shuffles amidst the carnage of the battlefield. It lopes blithely beneath the impassive statues of Awoken Techeuns, unable to make the abstract connection between the memorials and the stiffening corpses.

It sorts through all materials with equal interest: blood-stained cloth, stone rubble, burnt paper, viscera. It examines an empty bandolier. It chews on a clump of hair. It does not consider the taste.

The Acolyte rolls over the upper half of a corpse bisected by Tulkor’s void eyes. Unlike other enemies, this one clutches a thick black tube. Not flesh, but metal. It pauses.


Its grasps the tube and pulls, prying the tube from the enemy’s rigid fingers. It remembers hearing the tube roar. Seeing explosions stagger The Ferocity of Xivu Arath.


For the first time since the assault began, the Acolyte glimpses the Final Shape. With this weapon, the Acolyte could ascend. It could impose Logic. This weapon could destroy—

Its incipient thought is interrupted by a hollow crunch.

The Acolyte’s eyes go dim. It slumps to the ground as a Knight dislodges its sword from the Acolyte’s skull. It tosses away its subordinate’s corpse with one hand and picks up the grenade launcher with the other.

A fine weapon. Worthy of a Knight of Xivu Arath.
