With Lightfall, a brand-new element was released: Strand. And while most are excited about all the over-the-top Strand abilities, including the ability to fling yourself in the air, Lightfall also introduced Strand weapons for the first time.
In this guide, we cover every Strand weapon released so far with Lightfall and Season of Defiance, including both Legendary and Exotic weapons.

Note that two of them are Exotics:
Quicksilver Storm (Auto rifle)
The Quicksilver Storm was released in Season 19 as a bonus to all players who pre-ordered Lightfall. This Exotic Auto rifle starts out as a Kinetic weapon but transforms into a Strand weapon once its Catalyst is unlocked. As described in the weapon’s catalyst:
This weapon’s damage type becomes Strand. Final blows with grenades from this weapon create Tanbles.
Final Warning (Sidearm)
This sidearm is the only other Strand exotic in the game. While we still haven’t tried this weapon ourselves, it appears to have aggressive tracking capabilities, similar to the sidearm from the original Titanfall game. This can be seen during Bungie’s official reveal trailer:
Hold down the trigger of this Kinetic slot Strand Sidearm to mark targets within range and load a burst of bullets. When hip firing, projectiles track aggressively toward marked targets.
