Deepsight Resonance is a gameplay mechanic introduced in The Witch Queen. It is related to Weapon Shaping.


After the player completes The Arrival mission and The Relic quest in the free segment of The Witch Queen campaign, they will acquire the Shaping: Extraction quest. This quest requires the player to get a Deepsight Resonance weapon as a drop, but it is unclear if acquiring the quest is the only prerequisite for allowing weapons to drop with Deepsight Resonance. Bungie's Weapon Crafting Guide suggests that it is tied to the player unlocking the Deepsight power during The Investigation mission, which is also free.[1]


A Deepsight Resonance weapon is signified by a red border around its icon. A distinctive sound is played when one drops. Only weapons that can be crafted can drop with Deepsight.[2]

To unlock a weapon for crafting, its Weapon Pattern must be unlocked. Most Patterns require players to perform a certain number of Deepsight Resonance extractions on specific weapons to unlock them for crafting. A Deepsight weapon's tooltip will note whether or not the weapon has a Pattern that can be progressed.

Deepsight can be extracted from a weapon by either using the extraction option on the Details screen, which leaves it intact, or by dismantling the weapon.[2] The number of extractions required may vary depending on the weapon. Infusing a Deepsight weapon into another weapon will not count as dismantling it, and will not reward Pattern progress.


Deepsight Resonance weapons will drop from activities that reward craftable weapons. Weapons will not drop with Deepsight if their patterns are unlocked.[2]

For players seeking a specific Deepsight Resonance weapon to unlock its Weapon Pattern, the primary way to improve one's chances is to continue getting drops of that weapon until it drops with Deepsight Resonance. In some cases, players can guarantee Deepsight Resonance drops. For example, in the Vow of the Disciple raid, the first weapon purchased from the Lubrae's Ruin vendor in a given week is guaranteed to have Deepsight Resonance. Some rewards from quests, activities, or vendors may also be guaranteed to have Deepsight Resonance.

Deepsight Activation

The Deepsight Harmonizer icon.jpg Deepsight Harmonizer item can be used to activate Deepsight Resonance on copies of weapons that the player has acquired. Using a Harmonizer consumes the item, as well as 15 Spoils of conquest icon1.jpg Spoils of Conquest if the weapon is from a raid. Harmonizers cannot be used on weapons that have already had Deepsight, weapons that already have their Patterns unlocked, copies of weapons that were obtained before becoming craftable, or non-craftable weapons. Weapons purchased from raid vendors are not eligible for activation, while weapons purchased from Banshee-44 and Xûr are eligible.[3]
