This weapon is one of the most amazing Hand Cannons added with Shadowkeep. It’s not the easiest weapon to initially earn, but once you’ve got it, there are a few different rolls to look out for. In this Loud Lullaby Destiny 2 guide, we’ll cover how to get the weapon, and everything else you should know about it as well.

This weapon is intrinsically linked with the Necromantic Shard. It’s an item that’s part of the side content on the Moon for Shadowkeep. You’ll find it as part of one of the tasks for Essence of Brutality. It’s not on all the charts, so you’re going to have to really search for it. Luckily, we know exactly where. You want to head to the Hall of Wisdom to pick it up. This is an underground segment of the Hellmouth. First, head to the east of Archer’s Line and look for a tall entrance that’s glowing. Walk through here and continue until you hit the Hall of Wisdom.

Within this area is a space that’s illuminated by an orange chandelier. Keep walking down the corridor and you’ll be able to see it. You’ll find the Necromantic Shard here, and it’ll drop in the shape of a weapon plan. This is all you need from the area, so you can now back out and get away from the creepy location.

The other parts of the quest to get Loud Lullaby are easy. You’ll need to do some bounties, complete a few Lost Sectors and Public Events, and then you’ll have this Hand Cannon in your hands. Wonderful.

Best Rolls

The best rolls with this weapon are entirely up to you. The thing is, it all depends on how you play, and what you want to use the weapon for. However, we have noticed that the combinations you should be looking for all revolve around reloading faster and dealing higher damage.

With increased accuracy, you’ll gain more precision hits, and more buffs to the way you’re using the weapon in general. This is what you want to mainly focus your efforts on, since the weapon doesn’t have much else going for it. Keep the damage you’re dealing high through perks, but always be aware of what you can do to make use of the increases to other stats through the other perks on this weapon.

There’s not much room for Loud Lullaby to be a useful weapon in every game mode. However, we do see that if you’re hoping to get a new weapon to use in strikes and raids, this is probably it. There are a few perks that relate to precision damage, something that you can keep up against a big foe like a boss.

When it comes to Gambit and the Crucible, there’s not much to say with this weapon. It feels like it truly misses the mark there. What you’ll be getting here is a brilliant and beautiful Hand Cannon though. The weapons added in Shadowkeep were some of the best-looking in Destiny 2 history. While each of them is fantastic in its own right, this is the weapon that you’ll want to chase if you’re good at making the most of Hand Cannons.
