Bungie has dropped a new trailer for Destiny 2: Beyond Light showcasing some new, powerful, exotic weapons and armor coming in November.
- Pulse – NO TIME TO EXPLAIN
Precision hits and hits against enemies affected by Stasis will return to the magazine. Stack this effect to summon a portal which will fire bullets from an alternate timeline of the weapon.
- Sniper – CLOUDSTRIKE
Precision final blows will generate lightning bolts at the target location. Rapid precision shots will summon an entire storm at the point of impact.
- Sword – THE LAMENT
A mortal blade, a stalwart shield. Block with The Lament to rev the blade, then shred through shielded enemies. At its peak, damaging an enemy will heal the wielder.
- Grenade launcher – SALVATION’S GRIP
Redemption is within your grasp. Each fired projectile will create Stasis crystals that will freeze nearby targets. Charge to increase the amount of crystals created and the freeze radius.
- Titan – ICEFALL MANTLE
Stand tall against the oncoming hordes with this reinforced armor that replaces the Titan’s Barricade with Overshield, absorbing damage from incoming fire.
- Titan – PRECIOUS SCARS
Prove your strength, even when coming back from the brink. Upon revives, the Titan gains an Overshield aura that protects the wearer and nearby allies.
- Hunter – MASK OF BAKRIS
Don the Mask to replace the Hunter’s Dodge ability with a longer range Shift ability that also temporarily cloaks the wearer during use.
- Hunter – ARTHRYS’S EMBRACE
The Hunter’s weighted knife gains a second ricochet; rapid precision hits gain a damage bonus and can temporarily stagger enemies.
- Warlock – DAWN CHORUS
Feel that sweet burn. The Warlock’s Daybreak projectiles deal extra damage and cause enemies to burn on contact. Gain melee energy each time a burn damages a target.
- Warlock – NECROTIC GRIP
A deadly caress, compounded. Melee attacks corrupt enemies with increasing damage over time. Defeating a corrupted combatant spreads the corruption to nearby targets and restores melee energy.
Beyond Light releases on November 10th.
Patriot’s Position: This all looks amazing and powerful. And it’s about time Destiny gets some truly powerful and awesome stuff. It’s also important to remember that Bungie excels at trailers and making things look better than they actually are. There’s a lot here that looks cool in the trailer and sounds really strong on paper, so we shall see.
I would say crucible feels like it’s going to be even more busted with some of this stuff, but frankly I don’t care. I’m of the mindset that PvP in this game should be for some casual fun and that the stronger more unique stuff we can get the better the PvE experience will be. And PvE should be the main focus.
This is not all of the exotics coming, at least I wouldn’t think. We know Hawkmoon is returning, so there’s no reason to assume a few other D1 exotics, be it weapons or armor, wouldn’t also be returning.
