Destiny 2: Malfeasance Guide

Malfeasance is one of the coolest looking guns in Destiny 2: Forsaken. But there is one very important thing you need to know about it before you equip it into your exotics slot. This guide will tell you how to get it, how to use it in PvE and in PvP.

Destiny 2: Malfeasance Guide

How to get

You can get Malfeasance as a random drop on Exotic Engrams. That means you will have to grind a lot. You can get the engrams from participating in PvP, Raids, Strikes and do some other things. Pay attention, that the drops are random and you may get another weapon from the Engram. Everything depends on your luck.


  • Explosive Shadow: when you shot an enemy he gets tainted slugs that burrow into him. When he gets five of them, they all explode dealing extra damage.
  • Corkscrew Rifling: increases range, stability and handling speed a little.
  • Extended mag: Greatly increases magazine size and decreases reload speed.
  • Taken Predator: deals bonus damage to Taken enemies and Gambit invaders.
  • Heavy Grip: increases stability, decreases handling speed.

This weapon has very specific mechanics. Explosive Shadow and Taken Predator perks are the most important perks of this weapon, they give a serious damage boost, but they both work only when you fight against Taken or Gambit invaders. So this makes this weapon useful in certain situations only!

If you are going to use this weapon every time as the primary it will not benefit you a lot. The reason is because of this gun shots pretty fast but it also deals less damage per hit. Sometimes there are the enemies that stay with the tiny amount of health after you shot them. This forces you to shot once again. But there are weapons that can one-shot such enemies. A lot of other guns allow you to kill enemies with 3 or 4 shots less.

This gun is a very good choice for the raids where you have to fight against Taken a lot. It hits quite hard, especially against Yellow Health Bar enemies when you can hit them 5 times and benefit from the explosion.

As for the PvP, this thing is useless. It doesn’t give any special perks that you can benefit from. Moreover, it requires you to hit the enemy 5 or 6 times which is annoying. Most of the time you will be destroyed before you finish the aim.

In my opinion, this gun isn’t the best. It’s a niche weapon and you must understand when to use it. Otherwise, you will find yourself underperforming. There are a lot of other guns that can replace Malfeasance and give you many valuable perks and higher overall damage.

To be honest, I expected this gun to be much better. But unfortunately, we have what we have. I hope that developers will patch this gun in the future giving it more power or making it useful in any situation.
