The Beyond Light expansion for Destiny 2 is filled to the brim with new content. When you land on Europa, you will find new kinds of enemies, environments, and items, including some exotic gear you can find on Jupiter’s icy moon.
Cloudstrike is a unique and powerful exotic sniper rifle that became available after the completion of the recent Deep Stone Crypt raid. If you’re the type of player who prefers to camp and pick off his foes from long range, then you’ll want to swing for this gun. Here is everything you need to know about the Cloudstrike sniper.
Cloudstrike exotic sniper perks
Many sniper rifles are no longer available in Beyond Light following the completion of the raid. The Cloudstrike is one of the few left and it has 5 unique perks:
- Fluted Barrel: Boost to handling speed and stability
- Alloy Magazine: Weapon reloads faster when the magazine runs out
- Hand-Laid Stock: Improved stability
- Stormbringer: Formation of a lightning storm after multiple precision hits
- Mortal Polarity: Lightning forms from precision hits and final blows
The Cloudstrike does bonus lightning damage to enemies hit by rapid precision hits, especially those with a lot of health. This makes the weapon ideal when battling raid bosses.
How to acquire Cloudstrike in Destiny 2
Here’s how Guardians can acquire the Cloudstrike exotic sniper rifle:
- Talk with the Exo Stranger to start the “A Hard Rain Falls” quest
- Kill foes, complete public events and patrols in the week’s Eclipsed zone until you reach 1000 points. This week it’s in Eventide Ruins.

What are Destiny 2 Glory Ranks?
Destiny 2 uses these as a way of measuring how good a player is, and they can determine what level of rewards you can obtain.
Guardians that want to test themselves have many ranks to power through, and it can help improve your ability, leading to a more successful time doing Raids and other single-player content.
How to rank up Glory Ranks
Glory points are earned by winning matches in the Crucible – a competitive PvP mode in Destiny 2 – with enough points enabling you to move up a Glory Rank.
Taking part in the competitive playlist will allow players to fight against a variety of different skill levels as the game mode favors connection-based matchmaking as opposed to the modern-day norm of skill-based matchmaking.
The Quickplay playlist will not level up your Glory, so instead, make sure you are only sticking to Competitive Crucible modes.
All Destiny 2 Glory Ranks & points required
From beginners starting their first match at Guardian I to veterans who have managed to hit the Max rank ceiling, there are many levels to ascend.
Here is a complete list of all of the Glory Ranks.
|Glory Rank||Points bracket||Glory points needed for next rank|
As you can see, the first few ranks aren’t anything to write home about, but as you start to make some serious progress, the points needed per rank will seriously begin to mount.
Glory Ranks rewards
But what are you doing all this work for apart from pride and honor? Destiny 2 players are also trying to acquire flashy Titles to display, along with Glory itself.
That’s it. Glory Ranks used to reward weapons, but that was changed some time ago, and cosmetic alterations are the only true, tangible rewards now.
Glory Ranks are one of the many different ways you can enjoy Destiny 2, and there are also Gambit Infamy Ranks to climb up.
