Bungie has unveiled quite a few particulars about Destiny 2‘s subsequent DLC growth, The Black Armory, and Season 5 this week, which has introduced new Exotic items to Eververse. Along with the small print about new actions and a brand new Raid comes a take a look at 4 new Exotic weapons to chase as soon as the DLC releases subsequent week.
Those 4 Exotics are Anarchy, Le Monarch, Izanagi’s Burden, and Jotun, detailed in Bungie’s Black Armory vidoc (watch it above). Three of the Exotics are modeled after the three completely different Golden Age families–French, Japanese, and Norse–at the center of the story of the Black Armory, who every labored to grow to be the best weaponsmiths of all time. The final Exotic, Anarchy, takes its design from the Fallen. We additionally learn about a fifth Exotic, which Bungie says will probably be a returning weapon from Destiny 1.
Anarchy, the primary Exotic, is a Fallen-styled grenade launcher. Its massive cool perk is Arc Traps, which flip its grenades into proximity mines that stick with surfaces. It sounds just like the gun will reside as much as its identify by creating ridiculous chaos, particularly in Crucible Control matches.
Le Monarch is an Exotic bow within the fashion of the French household. It takes a web page from the Destiny 1 gun Thorn: its perk, Pestilence Arrows, create a cloud that damages enemies round whoever you are taking pictures at.
From the Japanese household comes Izanagi’s Burden, a sniper rifle that additionally seems type of like a sword. Its perk is Honed Edge, which lets you maintain down the reload button to slam your complete four-round journal into one shot. According to Bungie, the ensuing blast is so highly effective it will probably take down an enemy in a single physique shot–which will make this a robust possibility for the Crucible, and a weapon that may stand as much as favorites Sleeper Simulant and Whisper of the Worm.
The final Exotic, Jotun, is proven in Bungie’s vidoc. It’s a fusion rifle gamers put on on their palms (the builders name it the “arm blaster”), and fires a big flaming slug that explodes on influence. It additionally tracks enemies, which is able to make it lethal within the Crucible.
As far because the final Exotic, we do not know which Destiny 1 gun it’s going to be, however Bungie may need dropped a number of clues within the vidoc and with its long-term schedule for Destiny 2’s Year 2 content material. In the vidoc, when the ultimate Exotic will get talked about, footage from the strike The Corrupted is proven. It’s the model of the strike that gamers run by means of once they’re engaged on the search for the Exotic Malfeasance, throughout which they’re despatched by the Drifter to seek out the grave of a Guardian named Callum Sol.
Speculation is that the Drifter is carefully associated to Dredgen Yor, a determine from Destiny lore who supposedly created Thorn, an Exotic hand cannon from Destiny 1. Yor famously turned corrupted, and was finally hunted down and defeated in a duel by Shin Malphur with one other Exotic hand cannon, Last Word. We know from Bungie’s content roadmap in Season 5 that an Exotic quest is approaching January 29. That quest’s identify: The Draw. Given these clues, it appears we could possibly be seeing both Thorn or Last Word popping up in Destiny 2 come January. From a narrative perspective, that’d make sense, since Season 6 is all concerning the Drifter.
Unfortunately we’ll have to attend and see what Exotic lastly does pop up in The Black Armory, and the way participant will go about getting the 4 Bungie has detailed. Destiny 2’s subsequent growth drops on December 4.
