Dead Messenger is an Exotic grenade launcher introduced in Season of the Risen. It does Void damage by default, with the capacity to change to dealing Solar and Arc damage by holding the reload button.
A gift for the empress who has everything.
The Guardian ducked behind cover and pulled out a sleek grenade launcher, recovered during their last assault of the base. They fired into a pack of onrushing war beasts, sending shrapnel hurling through the air.
The Cabal empress emitted a low rumble as she admired the weapon. Zavala looked up at the enormous ruler with raised eyebrows. Her gaze was fixed on the firefight, her eyes twinkling with violent ardor.
Caiatl looked down at the Awoken leader, suddenly aware that her avarice had been on display. She lowered her tusks, which the commander interpreted as equivalent to a blush.
"That would be most welcome, Commander," Caiatl replied. "I'd like to fire it into Xivu Arath's belly and bathe in her soulfire."
Zavala turned back to the screen. "You have a… passionate spirit, Empress."
He did not see it, but beneath her mask, Empress Caiatl smiled.
It was terrifying.
