Destiny showcased a hefty amount of new weapons and armor players can expect to obtain in the brand new expansion Beyond Light. These exotic pieces of gear look like excellent additions to the game’s ever-expanding arsenal of destruction.
Below, you can watch the trailer that highlights each of these pieces of gear. From shield-breaking swords to lightning sniper rifles, I think Destiny has its bases covered.
From a design point, it looks like Bungie is ushering in a much different design than previous expansions. Each piece of gear seems wildly different than the last. This helps distinguish them and make them feel more significant.
I certainly do not want to go up against any of these gear pieces in the Crucible, but it doesn’t look like I’ll have a choice. I can’t wait to be sniped by a lightning bolt.
Here is the list of every piece of gear in that trailer.
No Time to Explain (Pulse Rifle) - 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.
Cloudstrike (Sniper Rifle) - Precision final blows will generate lightning bolts at the target location. Rapid precision shots will summon an entire storm at the point of impact.
The Lament (Sword) - 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.
Salvation’s Grip (Grenade Launcher) - 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.
Icefall Mantle (Titan Gauntlets) - Stand tall against the oncoming hordes with this reinforced armor that replaces the Titan’s Barricade with Overshield, absorbing damage from incoming fire.
Precious Scars (Titan Helmet) - 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.
Mask of Bakris (Hunter Helmet) - Don the Mask to replace the Hunter’s Dodge ability with a longer range Shift ability that also temporarily cloaks the wearer during use.
Arthritis’s Embrace (Hunter Gauntlets) - The Hunter’s weighted knife gains a second ricochet; rapid precision hits gain a damage bonus and can temporarily stagger enemies.
Dawn Chorus (Warlock Helmet) - 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.
Necrotic Grip (Warlock Gauntlets) - 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.
There is plenty more to see from the Beyond Light expansion, which launches on November 10. When was the last time you played Destiny 2? You can play for free with Destiny 2 New Light, or if you want to play through the expansions, it’s on Xbox Game Pass.
There is still time to level up before Beyond Light drops, so be sure to start soon! Beyond Light will also take away some of the games older content, so if you want to experience that before it’s put in the vault, your days are numbered.
