Destiny 2 (opens in new tab) just got a new exotic grenade launcher and it's one-shotting raid bosses.
A number of examples collated by the good people at PC Gamer (opens in new tab) show the new Witherhoard launching raid boss-deleting grenades, much to the confused satisfaction of players. Here are a few close-ups of the currently very broken Witherhoard in action:

OKAYSeeing an ass-ton of clips where Witherhoard RUINS raid bosses. Not in a normal, DPS-type way, but in a "wtf that can't be working as intended" way. For Majors, the multiple shots seem to not-stack, but for now, Raid bosses are ALLERGIC to this. Will be fixed soon 4 SURE https://t.co/zvdcEAUYDhJune 10, 2020
You'll notice the caption on that last clip notes that the fatal damage the Witherhoard inflicts on raid bosses probably wasn't intentional by Bungie. That means it's probably being patched out at this very moment, and if not it'll almost certainly be patched out relatively soon. It also means you should absolutely grab yourself one of those suckers and laugh maniacally as you fire off death bombs at unsuspecting raid bosses.
You'll need to download the new Season of Arrivals expansion for Destiny 2 before you can start dunking on raid bosses, but you'll have immediate access to the Witherhoard if you carry a season pass. The big new update also adds a new dungeon, Prophecy, and is available to all Destiny 2 players (including New Light-only players) now.
Bungie recently unveiled massive plans for the next three years of Destiny 2's future, and it's set to shake things up in major ways, some even likening the collective expansions as Destiny 3 in all but name. Here's a round-up of everything we learned during June 9's Destiny 2 reveal (opens in new tab), written up by GamesRadar's very own authority on Destiny 2, Austin Wood.
Here's how Bungie is building Destiny 2 into the all-encompassing MMORPG (opens in new tab) it's been planning for years.
