Destiny 2’s Graviton Lance Exotic doesn’t just look good…it sounds good too

Graviton Lance (3)

What makes a gun in Destiny so memorable? Even after the first-person shooter genre has managed to exhaust its supply of making an assault rifle as iconic as Half-Life’s MP-5, Destiny still managed to deliver some…high-calibre gun love. Heh. The formula that made guns such as The Last Word, Monte Carlo and Universal Remote so beloved?

It’s that these weren’t just weapons, they were characters in their own right. You read the lore attached to Last Word and Thorn, and you delve into a legend that spans years of conflict as one lone gunslinger tracked down a corrupted Guardian and finished the job that his father couldn’t. It’s one of may stories, that made certain Exotics so popular on and off the killing field.

I haven’t had a chance to handle too many of Destiny 2’s Exotics, but I can easily say that Graviton Lance may be the one gun that sounds the best in action. Here’s what it looks like and some of it’s lore that comes attached to it:

Graviton Lance (1)

So wait, that thing you found does…what?

It fires black holes.

No it doesn’t.

Oh yeah. It does. Actual, tiny, bullet-sized black holes.

Did you tell the others?

Only that I found some weird gun in some overgrown tunnel back on Old Chicago. And that my Ghost was all “THIS is why we were led here…”

Yours talks that way too?

What do you think?

OK OK, but the gun – Are you going to tell them?

Yeah, definitely.

When?

Crucible.

Oh no.

Oh, yes.

In action, it’s a Pulse Rifle that spits out a trio of Void-damage rounds which can leave a target stricken with a sudden case of Baysplosions. If you’re into Pulse Rifles, it’s a decent weapon that can be used to clear a room quickly. Listening to it fire off round after round, is what makes it special. There’s an emphasis on the deepest of bass attached to each squeeze of the trigger. It’s like Dr Dre designed it.

You’ll only do your ears justice when you’re sitting with a decent headset on to get the full brunt of that bass, so hopefully you’re kitted out. I know I’m getting worked up over something that only appeals to a niche audience of audiophiles, but I live for stuff like this. It makes my world go round, to see or hear small details like this. I can’t wait to get my hands on the Graviton Lance again tomorrow.

    Haven’t read the article, but thanks for the spoiler warning :/

    Another site I now have to avoid until I actually get to play the damn game myself.

      I don’t see how it’s a spoiler? I didn’t mention the steps required to obtain it even, just a rundown on why I like it.

        See my reply to Gavin, sorry for coming across as a bit of a douchebag, D.

        As someone who has to sit at work for another 9 hours before I can experience this myself, I don’t want to have to avoid reading CH because at this point, Reddit and most other news sites have them spoils for days… You guys are pretty much my only reading material today haha.

          Fair enough, and you do have a good idea that I will implement for further Exotic weapon breakdowns.

          You might want to avoid the site today anyway. Or at least my articles, because I’m in full D2-mode right now.

            Will keep an eye out, thanks for the heads up bud.

            Once I actually get online, should organize a strike or PVP or something? I have a pretty decent size clan going at the moment if you keen?

      A spoiler on a weapon in a game with hundreds of weapons? Seems a bit odd to see this as a spoiler

        Hundreds of weapons yes, but Exotics, like this one, are unique. Could just be me, but after going into Destiny 1 knowing about every leaked exotic and knowing as much about the game as possible ruined the experience a lot.

        This time around there are a good few people going in completely dark in order to experience things fresh. So when I actually get a Graviton Lance, there is a legitimate WOW! factor because I’ve never seen something like this before instead of an, “Oh cool, this one I saw on a news site a few days ago”.

        I’m not expecting you guys to not post Destiny 2 coverage, especially with it being the massive release that it is, but a cool/funny cover image not spoiling the weapon detail screen with a spoiler warning would be nice to give those people a chance to skip the article/reveal until they have a chance to even boot the game first.
