The Colony is an exotic void Grenade Launcher in Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris. This weapon fires grenades that, if they do not hit their target, will chase after the nearest target as an autonomous drone.


We outnumber you. We will find you. You are alone, and we are colony.

Have you ever watched a snake kill something? It's awful. It's so awful. I watched a man die of a terciopelo bite once. Out by the northern wall. I still have nightmares about it. Anyway, that's where VEIST comes from. The inspiration, I mean. Weapons with all the power of a venomous creature. Plus an onboard AI with that creature's killer instincts. And now there's the Colony. A grenade launcher packed with fully mobile, AI-controlled insectoid detonators, each one designed with a taste for blood. We've made some pretty messed-up stuff. You've probably seen it. You know. But we've never made anything like the Colony before.


This grenade launcher can be useful to kill fast moving enemies, such as Vandals and Psions when they are running. The Colony is one of the most used weapons in The Crucible, with people mostly choosing it because of the weapon's tracking grenades and auto-loading magazine when stowed.
