How To Get Succession in Destiny 2

When it comes to long-range and high damage, Sniper Rifles have always been a popular choice for dropping enemies in an instant.

Amongst the BRAVE Arsenal is a returning weapon called Succession, a Legendary Sniper Rifle with both high damage and a great deal of range.

This weapon became available once more with the Into The Light update and can be utilized in both PVE and PVP to take out your enemies within a few shots or even just a single Precision Hit.

How To Get Succession (Legendary Sniper Rifle)?

The Succession Legendary Sniper Rifle is obtainable in many ways while Into The Light is still available and some of the more common ways are to do Onslaught Activities or trade Trophies of Bravery.

You can trade Trophies of Bravery in the Hall of Champers by interacting with the BRAVE Arsenal Chest near Lord Shaxx. (Costs 10 per random BRAVE weapon)

There is a quest called Right of Succession that you may acquire from Arcite 99-40, which will reward you with a Masterworked version of this weapon from Lord Shaxx.

Attuning with Succession Holo-Shaxx in the Hall of Champions will increase the chances of getting this weapon from the BRAVE Arsenal Chest or when completing Onslaught Activities.

Succession Origin Trait


Similar to the other weapons included in the BRAVE Arsenal, Succession also has the Indomitability Origin Trait to restore energy for either Grenade or Melee Abilities.

This causes Final Blows with the Succession to regenerate Grenade Energy for Light Subclasses or Melee Energy for Dark Subclasses.

Succession Intrinsics

Aggressive Frame

The Aggressive Frame Weapon Intrinsic boosts the damage of the Succession Legendary Sniper Rifle but the drawback is that the recoil is also increased.

This is acceptable since Sniper Rifles often have fewer shots in a magazine and you won’t need rapid fire that much if you can take most enemies out with a single shot.


Completing the Right of Succession quest from Arcite 99-40 is a good way to get Succession early as it will be Masterworked, which gives it increased Handling. (Faster ready and aim speed)

Eventually, you can get better rolls with Succession as drops from Onslaught Activities or the BRAVE Arsenal Chest, especially if you have attuned with the Succession Holo-Shaxx.

Using Light Subclasses provides you with more Grenade Energy with Final Blows with Succession, which can be useful when engaging enemies from afar, or Dark Subclasses if you need Melee Energy often.
