Destiny’s latest piece of exotic gear is a god-killer

3 min read


It may not be to everybody’s tastes, but I’m genuinely digging Destiny as I approach my twentieth hour while patrolling the Cosmodrome. Sure, it’s not perfect, but there’s a lot to love. Especially when it comes to loot. Now that I’m busy working my light level up and earning both Crucible and Vanguard marks which will be spent on some of that sweetass exotic gear, I’m also keeping my eyes peeled for when I finally get my first taste of exotic loot. And baby, I want this helmet. I just gots to have it!

It’s called the Celestial Nighthawk, and what it does is turn your Hunter in a boss-killing death machine of destruction. It works simple enough, as the Celestial Nighthawk adds the following perk to your Hunter character:

BIG GAME: Golden Gun fires one shot, delivering 6x damage, while granting Keyhole for overpenetration.

Been playing as a Warlock for too long? Then let me break it down for you. Hunters have the ability to summon a Dirty Harry-esque hand cannon into battle, that allows them to quickly fire off a few shots of solar damage that are amplified to deal the mother of all burns. It’s amazing that Kelso from That Seventies Show doesn’t show up every time you use the ability. The gun itself is already overpowered. With the Celestial Nighthawk helm on however, that power is amplified sixfold. Which means that you can pretty much finish a boss off such as Crota, in half a clip of rounds.

It’s also pretty damn difficult to get the helmet, and perhaps a tad bit useless outside of boss raids. But hot damn, the helmet does help reinforce the idea of having loot in Destiny that truly feels special.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
