In this week’s Destiny weekly update, Bungie released information and screenshots on some of the new weapons coming in Destiny’s first major expansion, The Taken King.
Now they aren’t sharing stats mind you. Instead, what we do get is a up close look at not only the weapons but some of the weapon manufacturers as well.
The weapons used by our Guardians come from the salvaged remains of our Golden Age and new discoveries in advanced energy systems. After the Collapse, gunsmiths who were the best at repurposing and repairing these artifacts quickly became crucial to any group’s survival. But with large arsenals comes power, and threats to our common goals forced the City to monitor the size of its weapon foundries. The foundries that survive today are the best of the best. Some are built on centuries-old traditions and tribal knowledge, others grew with new discoveries and rediscoveries, and each one has proven vital to our survival.
Check out the gallery below for a look at the new weapons slated to be released when the The Taken King expansion arrives on Sept. 15. There are guns from what is probably the most well known manufacturer Suros (thanks to this gun) and also others as well including Omolon and Hakke. Personally, I’m hoping that some of these guns are at least legendaries. That Suros rocket launcher in particular looks rad.
If you’re into lore, it’s worth visiting the full post as the update provides some interesting tidbits about these three manufacturers including a tactical analysis and concept art. Also of note is that according to Bungie, some of the new weapons are class specific and there will be more choices in weaponry than currently exists in Destiny. “There will be more choices than ever to arm yourself in the Tower. Factions will have their own guns. Classes will have their own guns. More Quests will lead you toward specific guns.”
Finally, also worth mentioning from this week’s update was news about this week’s Trials of Osiris map. Namely, there won’t just be one map.
