Destiny 2: Black Armory rumours reveal new Black-type weapons and a few old Exotic favourites

Destiny 2 Black Armory (2)

More than ever before, Destiny 2 is positioning itself as an investment. Not just of time and effort, but also on a financial side with its approach to rolling out future content. The Forsaken expansion that revitalised Bungie’s cosmic sandbox may have cost a few bucks, but the other upcoming content drops that’ll frame each season for the next year? That’ll also cost you.

Thing is, give players something worthy to play, and they’ll happily drop a few bucks extra into the pot. Destiny 2 feels properly satisfying lately, and if Forsaken is an indication of where the series is headed then I’m already feeling justified in grabbing an annual pass. So what’s on the horizon for Black Armory? According to leaks that popped up on the Destiny 2 reddit community, the next slice of substantial content is going to be appropriately gun-heavy. Here’s a breakdown of the details that were spilled. Light level 520 pinch of salt, probably required:

Destiny 2 Black Armory (3)

  • The Last Word hand cannon, Thunderlord heavy machine gun and Icebreaker sniper rifle will be returning
  • In the EDZ, there’ll be a new “bubble location” raid lair, with a focus on the Hive
  • There is some dispute with this new Raid Lair, as other sources claim that it takes place on Titan
  • New Forge of the Chain activity, which continues the Blind Well and Escalation Protocol public arenas
  • This will be set in the EDZ and will feature a mix of Vex and Cabal enemies
  • A new weapon rarity will be introduced, Black-type guns
  • These will surpass Exotic-type weapons
  • The Black Armory will introduce Gaunt, the curator of the infamous arsenal
  • Guardians will find themselves working to uncover the history of the Black Armory
  • Players will be able to earn new Exotics in these missions, one by one
  • Kromas will leave a nasty comment and I’ll spend the rest of the day crying about how I’m never allowed to enjoy nice things

Oh my yes. If you want to know what Destiny 2’s primary appeal is, it’s the chase that the game represents. The constant grind for more power, that is found in the loot that enemies drop. Always striving to be deadlier in combat and experimenting with new weapons from a wide range of ballistic disciplines, is what Destiny 2 is all about.

If Black Armory is tapping into that compulsion, then the upcoming quarter is going to be a fun foray into December dismemberment.

    I only recently started playing Destiny 2 (think I got a “free” copy with my GPU which I bought in November 2017), so I have no idea what it was like back then, however I do have to say I’ve really enjoyed my experience thus far… to me it sorta feels like an MMO’ish Borderlands… anyway… I’m considering buying all the expansions, and perhaps even the season pass. Is there an active SA community / clans for Destiny 2 or not really?

      There are a few out there but knowing if they are active or not is another story. I know my clan still is active but not sure to what extent. You can have a look at them. Red Faction ZA.

            Since a GPU key is bound to PC I would say yes. Also you don;t buy a GPU and then play games on an inferior system … even if that game is a giant ripoff like Destiny 2. 😛

            Lol… You are one narrow minded, funny individual.

            It’s called having a choice, also would not call jamming 4k with HDR on massive screen inferior..

            But to each his own.

            Sometimes i will play destiny on PC as well, when not in the mood for console..

            Also at 30fps you can keep your 4k screen.

            Lol 30fps… What is this 2016?

          • Kromas

            60FPS is only achievable with dynamic scaling and with that your whole 4k deal goes out the window.

            Technically not true in all instances. Look at games like Forza 7, Madden 18, forza horizon 4

          • Kromas

            October 10, 2018 at 12:21

            I can’t speak for madden or Forza 7 but Horizon 4 is either 60fps 1080p or 30fps 4k.

            You missed the “:P” but good for you. Also not everyone can afford to purchase a game twice. I am really happy you have that much money lying around. The rest of us suffer with increasing petrol prices and vat increases.

            Well… I only have a monster PC… so no plans to switch over to the dark less powerful side anytime soon 😛
