Destiny’s arsenal is vast and varied: fire-spewing shotguns and head-melting fusion rifles coexist beside traditional pistols and rifles. Weapons span three broad categories: Primary (autorifles and hand cannons), Special (shotguns and sniper rifles), and Heavy (rockets and belt-fed machineguns). There’s plenty of variety within each category, too. The autorifle sub-category include burst-fire pulse rifles, single-shot carbines, and an array of full-auto assault rifles that prove murderously effective at close range. Despite the sprawling arsenal, Bungie’s designers are taking pains to hand-tune each weapon’s look, feel, and lore, making them feel like natural extensions of the game’s fiction, not the expressions of some rampant computer algorithm.
Very soon, you’ll have a chance to take your first steps into that world as a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth in Destiny. We have a grand adventure planned for you, and we’re thrilled to be sharing another piece of it. For now, check out just one of the ways you’ll be to enjoy our upcoming shooter. This is a Strike — a cooperative scenario that sends a Fireteam on a dangerous mission to defeat hostile aliens and reap sweet rewards. See the action through the eyes of three of our heroes.
Beneath the ruins of the Cosmodrome, in the shadow of an old colony ship, we’ve located the House of Devils’ lair. Fight the Fallen, burn back the Hive, and clear a path that leads straight into E3, Beta, and beyond.
Our Destiny has been revealed. Thanks Bungie!
