The Glaive could be one of Destiny’s most versatile weapons yet.

What is the Glaive in Destiny 2 Witch Queen?

The Glaive is a hybrid melee and ranged weapon that’s making its debut in the new expansion.

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.
