Fighting Lion is an exotic Grenade Launcher in Destiny 2. It was designed by Wei Ning.


"I call it the Zhang Fei. It hits almost as hard as I do." —Wei Ning

Wei Ning punched the mountain. It moved. A microscopic shudder, but enough to make her punch it again. “They're just angry that you keep winning without a gun.” Her Ghost danced fretfully around her fist. “That's why they say these things. Jealousy.”

“I tell you,” Ning grunted, shattering granite, “someday they'll lose their smart guns and fancy ships, and then they'll wish they'd listened! There's one weapon you can always count on, and it's your strong hand.”

Eriana would be sad to hear you dismissing machines.” Her Ghost bobbed slyly up to her shoulder. “Eriana would ask if those mighty hands could build a machine in the image of your strength. Just like she was made in the image of a woman.”

Wei Ning tapped her fists together. “Huh,” she said.


Unlike most grenade launchers, which are power weapons, this one goes in the energy weapon slot. Fighting Lion's main perk is that when it strikes an enemy, quickly killing an enemy damaged by the blast will generate and reload another shot for the Fighting Lion.

Weapon Perks[edit]

Delayed Gratification - Grenade projectiles will bounce off surfaces. Hold to fire, and release to detonate.

Countermass - This weapon is weighted for vertical recoil.

Implosion Rounds - This weapon's projectiles travel faster and have a controlled explosion.

Thin the Herd - Direct hits do more damage to enemy combatant shields. Rapid kills against grenade-damaged enemies refill the magazine. Kills always drop Primary ammo.

Short-action Stock - This weapon is especially easy to grip.


  • The Fighting Lion was considered by the community to be the worst exotic weapon in the series due to its exotic perk having very limited use, until it’s mechanics were revised in Curse of Osiris.
