In addition to being exceptionally powerful on its own, the weapon gains increased fire power and spread with each subsequent shot fired. Not only that, but it’s fully automatic, allowing Destiny 2 players to bombard enemies with a steady stream of punishment to ensure they deal as much damage as possible as fast as they can.
This is all set to footage of the Fourth Horseman in use by three Guardians. Side by side, they tear through hoards of enemies ranging from basic to bulky, blowing them all away with ease thanks to their choice of armament.
Little else was revealed about the gun – namely, what Destiny 2 players would have to do to get one for themselves – but it’s still a nice teaser of what could be in store for those willing to do the leg work to get such an impressive weapon.
The trailer can be viewed in its entirety down below.
