It’s able to be wielded as a melee weapon, akin to a lance, and is the first melee weapon in the Destiny franchise to be used entirely in first-person.
It’s also capable of firing its blade toward enemies, while also offering bonus effects depending on which one you have.
So far, we know of four Glaives, with three of them being class-specific exotics and one being a Legendary weapon.
|The Enigma||Any||Legendary||Dealing ranged damage generates shield energy, can project a shield.|
|Edge of Concurrence||Hunter||Exotic||Tracking chain lightning|
|Edge of Action||Titan||Exotic||Place a protective shield|
|Edge of Intent||Warlock||Exotic||Deploy a healing turret|
There’s another Glaive called Lubrae’s Ruin, but we’re yet to locate the weapon pattern for that just yet.
If we find any more over the course of the Witch Queen or Season of the Risen, we’ll update this page.
Your first Glaive, The Enigma, will be earned through weapon crafting during the course of the campaign — you’ll be prompted to build it after the opening couple of missions.
As for the Exotic variants, you’ll need to finish The Investigation Board exotic quest which will be revealed during the campaign.
