New Faction Weapons Added to Destiny 2 Database
By Derek Nichols 19 January 2018
After the launch of Curse of Osiris, Bungie faced a growing problem where Destiny 2‘s non-DLC owners were suddenly locked out of previously accessible content such as Prestige raids and seasonal events like Iron Banner. The developer has since made good on its promise to fix things as Faction Rallies, Iron Banner, and other content is once again available to all. Though fans have yet to see the newly revamped Iron Banner or Faction Rallies return to the game during its second season, the content may just be right around the corner. New gear and weapons tied to these specific events have recently been added to the Destiny database.
Reddit user RBugaev managed to grab a complete list of all the new weapons coming to the second season Faction Rally and Iron Banner in Destiny 2. Whenever these events do appear, these are the weapons that will be available:
Future War Cult
- The Dream – This scout rifle with above-average range and impact also comes with Armor Piercing Rounds and Snapshot Sights.
- The Doubt – A fast firing, 600 RPM auto rifle, this weapon also comes with perks like Snapshot Sights and High-calibur Rounds.
- The Defiant – The hard-hitting hand cannon also features above-average handling and some interesting perks with Drop Mag, Accurized Rounds, and Threat Detector.
- The Domino – Another above-average impact weapon, this sniper rifle features enhancements to reloading thanks to Alloy Magazine, Flared Magwell, and Pulse Monitor.
- The Decide – FWC’s high impact, high reload speed shotgun, The Decide comes with Steady Rounds, Flared Magwell, and Moving Target for available perks.
- Eternal Slumber – The Dead Orbit pulse rifle is optimized for stability thanks to bonus perks like Steady Rounds and Under Pressure.
- Controlling Vision – This silencer included sidearm takes a page out of Hard Lights playbook with Richocet Rounds and can deal added damage with the Rampage perk.
- Hollow Earth – Similarly to the Dead Orbit sidearm, this auto rifle also comes with Richocet Rounds, while giving the user added stability through Zen Moment and Steady Rounds.
- Dead-Ender – Though this linear fusion rifle may not have eye-popping stats, players can boost its stats further with perks like Particle Repeater, Projection Fuse, and Outlaw.
- Distant Tumulus – This Legendary Sniper rifle is similar to the FWC sniper thanks to perks like Flared Magwell, Pulse Monitor, and Extended Mag.
- Loquitor IV – Sporting a higher than normal range stat, this auto rifle is capable of dealing major damage at distance with perks like High-Impact Reserves and Richocet Rounds.
- Legal Action II – Another high range pulse rifle, players can increase its damage as well with Rampage and High-Calibur Rounds.
- Adverse Possession IX – A jack of all trades, master of none style scout rifle, players also gain access to stat boosting perks like Flared Magwell, Steady Rounds, and Moving Target.
- Quitclaim Shotgun III – The Legendary New Monarchy high impact shotgun looks to be a beast at close quarters with Assault Mag, Field Prep, and Flared Magwell.
- Interference VI – Finally, the legendary grenade launcher gets a slight boost from perks like Alloy Casing, Field Prep, and Implosion Rounds.
This post also includes the previously revealed Iron Banner’s weapons for season 2 such as Gunnora’s Axe and Frostmire’s Hex. Interestingly enough, the final weapon in this list is a Kinetic Sidearm called Peace by Consensus. Though it isn’t listed in Destiny DB quite yet, the Reddit post goes on to reveal that the weapon will be made available to Curse of Osiris owners.
At this time, Bungie hasn’t specifically revealed when these events would be making a return. After seasonal events went on a short hiatus post-Curse of Osiris, and with the holiday season effectively shutting Bungie down, fans are hoping for a clearer picture of what’s next for Destiny 2 on Thursday. As part of its weekly communication with fans, game director Christopher Barrett is planning on revealing where the game is going in 2018. While details on what the discussion is going to cover are fairly slim at the moment, many fans are hoping to at least hear a few solutions for a few of the game’s nagging issues.
Destiny 2 is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
