Exotic Review: Peacekeepers

Designed for the seamless delivery of justice in an unjust world. 

The Peacekeepers are a bulky, yet useful Titan Exotic that focuses on the refined use of submachine gun spraying and praying. There are a few powerful submachine guns hiding within the pixels of Destiny 2 and with the arrival of the new Osiris weapons in Curse of Osiris, it may be a perfect Exotic to utilise.

The Peacekeepers use the Exotic perk Mecha Holster which reloads stowed submachine guns and lets you ready them instantly. For those unfamiliar, the time it takes to ready a weapon is basically the time taken between switching a weapon to the time it can be fired. In essence, the quicker the ready time, the sooner you can get back to blasting aliens in the face. The instant ready time for submachine guns is quite valuable, especially when you consider the fact that smgs are oftentimes used as a last resort/close quarters tool to deliver heavy damage in a short amount of time. Mecha Holster also reloads any and all stowed machine guns, whether they be Kinetic or Energy based. This process takes about two seconds, basically, when you switch weapons and that weapon is readied, the entire submachine gun mag is reloaded. This once again adds to the benefit of smgs being a close quarters weapon.

Performance

Mecha Holster is the ideal perk to utilise if you are a fan of submachine guns, as they will prevent any hindrance to combat in terms of reloading as well as ensuring that your close quarter’s weapon is firable from the moment you switch. The instant reload is beneficial no matter what activity within Destiny 2 you are playing, but will see more use in the Crucible. It may not seem like much, but those couple seconds you will take to reload your SMG could be incredibly precious and the difference between emerging victorious and waiting for a respawn.

Acquisition?

The Peacekeepers can be acquired through a random Exotic Engram decryption or purchased from Xur if he happens to carry it in his inventory.
