Here’s a quick preview of the three ritual weapons you can earn in Season of the Undying. Because these weapons are no longer pinnacle weapons, the quest required to earn them is not as in depth as previous seasons. Note: Players can still earn Pinnacle Weapons from previous seasons, source @cozmo23. Bungie is making several changes to Pinnacle Weapons and perks, view the article by Bungie for more information.
