Bad Juju

"If you believe your weapon wants to end all existence, then so it will." —Toland, the Shattered


Excerpt from the Bad Juju Exotic Weapon Review


Bad Juju is an Exotic Pulse Rifle in Destiny wielded in the Primary Weapon slot. Back in Year One, Bad Juju was bad by name, bad by nature. It was the Necrochasm of Exotic Pulse Rifles. However, its Year Two version is another beast entirely.

In Year One, you could only obtain Bad Juju from the Exotic Bounty. This quest line is no longer available, so you have some options ahead of you to obtain this weapon. First of all, if you had the Year One version, the Year Two version is available for purchase from the Exotic Blueprints Kiosk in the Tower. Alternatively you can buy Primary Legacy Engrams from Xur and then upgrade via the kiosk. You can also play Year One content (Vault of Glass, Crota, Prison of Elders) to try and get lucky with a Bad Juju drop. It may also be possible to obtain Bad Juju from Year Two Primary Weapon Engrams. We’re not sure whether this Exotic is in Xur’s inventory pool.

We have a full Exotic Review and perk breakdown of Bad Juju Year Two.

Lore of Toland and Bad Juju

Bad Juju is a weapon crafted by Toland the Shattered, a Warlock exiled for his extreme fascination with the Hive. Before his exile, he was the owner of the Legendary Auto Rifle Shadow Price.

The story of Toland and Bad Juju is told through several Grimoire cards and items:

Before hunting Crota, Eris and her fireteam found the exiled Toland. They recruited him – the exiled master of Hive arcana – to assist in their mission to kill Crota. While Eris' fireteam was unsuccessful, Toland's fate is unknown.
