Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted continues to roll along, and like every new season, there are plenty of new weapons and armors to grind. Exotic weapons are some of the most powerful weapons in Destiny 2 that have some of the best traits. Unfortunately, you have to grind a lot to get your hands on some of these rare exotics.
While acquiring most exotics requires a bit of work, you can snag one for free along with its catalyst. While this may seem too good to be true, especially since you can't even get some of the "free" exotics like the Osteo Striga SMG without grinding for hours, you can actually get the Coldheart Exotic Trace Rifle for free without breaking a sweat. Here's our step-by-step guide, which explains how to unlock it.
Steps to acquire the Coldheart Exotic Trace Rifle for free in Destiny 2
The Coldheart Exotic Trace Rifle is part of Bungie's reward program, which you can access via Bungie's official website. Once you have accessed the website, head towards the Reward tab and select "Claim Digital Rewards."

- Destiny 2 Iron Banner Season 17 changes - PL disabled, new mode, more

In the "Digital Rewards" section, look for Bungie's Reward pack #1. Claim it to get not only the Coldheart Exotic Trace Rifle and its catalyst but also an Exotic Ghost "Sanctum Plate Shell" and a Legendary Ship "Talon Blue."
Before claiming the rewards, make sure you're logged in with the Bungie account you use to play Destiny 2. You will also need to verify your email before you get to claim the rewards.
Once you have claimed the Bungie Reward pack, log in to the game and acquire the items from Master Rahool in the Tower. The Coldheart Exotic Trace Rifle isn't a very powerful Exotic, and won't come in handy in high-level activities like Nightfalls(Legendary) and Dungeons.
The intrinsic trait "Cold Fusion" allows the arc laser to deal more damage the longer it remains on a target. While it isn't a game-changing exotic, it's a free weapon that's still fun to use.
That concludes our guide on how to get the Coldheart Exotic Trace Rifle for free in Destiny 2.
