Destiny's new season, Season of the Splicer, kicks off today.
Players can expect the return of the Vault of Glass later in the month, a new Override activity and the return of Iron Banner alongside plenty else, but one of the highlights of the new season's trailer was a new exotic sidearm.
Known as Cryosthesia 77k, here's what it does and how to get it.
Destiny 2: Season of the Splicer – How to get Cryostesia 77k
There's only one way to unlock the exotic Cryosthesia 77k in Destiny 2 and that's via the game's new season pass for 'Season of the Splicer'.
Even then there are two very different ways to gain the new exotic.
If you’ve purchased the season, then you can get it right away as a gift at rank 1.
Alternatively, if you have opted to not buy the new premium pass for the season, then you can still earn the exotic through the free season pass, but you'll need to reach a higher rank – this time around, it's rank 35.

It's worth remembering as well that you need not worry about missing out should you go the free route.
That's because a new Exotic kiosk in the Tower can offer older exotics, including those tied to the season pass – you'll just have to earn them with materials.
