How To Get Trinity Ghoul?

To obtain the Trinity Ghoul exotic weapon in Destiny 2, you have several options:

  2. Fireteam Medallions: Using Fireteam Medallion items can increase your chances of receiving exotic drops and improving overall loot quality. However, it doesn’t guarantee a Trinity Ghoul drop; it simply enhances your odds.
  3. Xûr: Xûr is a special vendor who appears weekly, selling exotic items. After Destiny 2 patch 2.2.0, Forsaken exotics were added to Xûr’s inventory, so periodically check Xûr’s offerings to see if the Trinity Ghoul is available for purchase.

The Weapon Perks

Currently, Trinity Ghoul comes with three weapon perks in addition to the base stats. One of the three perks comes naturally and is fixed. Regardless of the weapon drop type, this intrinsic perk remains unaltered and is used passively from the get-go. The other two perks are unlocked as you progress while playing with the Trinity Ghoul. Here is a breakdown of the perks that come with the weapon.

  1. Split Electron (Intrinsic Perk): The perk allows a guardian to fire an arrow that splits into multiple arrows. This passive effect happens whenever the arrow leaves the bow. If the guardian aims down the sight and fully draws the bow while firing the arrow, the overall spread of multiple arrows is decreased significantly.
  2. High Tension String: Upgrading to the perk alters the bow’s configuration by +10 Accuracy, -5 Stability, -5 draw time rating, and +20ms Draw Time. Overall draw time and accuracy increase significantly, but at the cost of stability.
  3. Compact Arrow Shaft: Unlocking the perk allows a guardian to carry +20 arrows. Also, the overall size of arrows becomes thinner, hence the increase in the inventory size.
  4. Lightning Rod: Leveling up this exotic weapon to infuse the lightning rod perk allows the guardian to channel a chain-lightning attack arrow shot. The perk’s status effect applies to the next shot after a guardian gets a precision kill using the Trinity Ghoul.

Catalyst Slot

The catalyst slot sets this weapon apart from the other exotic weapons. Moreover, if you run with an arc class, using Trinity Ghoul Catalyst can prove a menacing exotic weapon one can dream of while playing PvP or PvE in Destiny 2.

After using the catalyst modification of this exotic weapon, the lightning rod perk gets triggered every time you land arc damage as the final blow to an enemy in PvE or at a guardian in PvE. Moreover, using the Trinity Ghoul proves devastating if you equip it with all the perks and the weapon mod. It is a perfect weapon to avenge Cayde-6’s death or destroy guardians in PvP mode.
