New Destiny 2: Witch Queen Weapons & Gear Trailer Teases Crafting And New Exotics
Destiny 2: The Witch Queen is only a few weeks away. It’s been a strange buildup for Destiny 2’s next big expansion. For starters, well, Sony just bought Bungie, so that’s one thing. But also, this has been a cycle where it seems like Bungie released so many trailers and little tidbits of information, but said very little. This trailer does a better job of getting into more difficult details.
We know that crafting and new exotics are coming to Destiny 2. We don’t yet know how crafting will work and we don’t have an extensive list of exotics in The Witch Queen yet. This trailer doesn’t tell us much about weapon crafting, except where the video seems to tie crafting to various items and alchemy, which has been teased during some of the other videos Bungie has put out in recent months.
The trailer, however, gives more substantial information about the new exotic gear. To start with, there will be three class exclusive Glaives. It is not clear from the trailer if they are exotics. The Titan Glaive will deploy a protective bubble. The Warlock Glaive will deploy a healing turret. And the Hunter Glaive will fire chain lightning projectiles.
On the non-Glave front, three new exotic weapons have been introduced. Grand Overture, with the description: “Slug Launcher Charges Full Auto Missles” – looks like a machine gun to me. Parasite, a “worm” grenade launcher with increasing damage and fires explosive hive worms. And finally, Osteo Striga, an SMG that has swarm projectiles with a toxic blast that seems incredibly powerful.
But wait, that’s not all. Three new exotic armor pieces were also introduced, one for each class. The Hoarfrost-Z chest for titans will allow Titan Barricade to cast a huge wall of Stasis instead of Barricade. Osomimancy Gloves for Warlock allow for an additional Coldnsap with improved quest. And the Hunter’s Blight Ranger helmet will allow the projectiles reflected by the Arcstrider from the central axis to increase the damage; the trailer shows the hunter deflecting the Hive-Light’s powers back at them to remember.
The trailer overall is solid. Check it out above to get a head start on the 2/2/22 release date for Destiny 2: The Witch Queen.
