Destiny 2 Reveals New Exotic Armor And Weapons In Warmind DLC
New Exotic weapons and armor are coming in Destiny 2’s second expansion
New Destiny 2 Exotic weapons and armor are officially on the way to the game, and we finally have some idea of what to expect. With Bungie at long last revealing the first details about the upcoming Warmind DLC expansion, it’s also shared a look at a selection of Exotic gear that will soon be added.
A ton of new content is on the way to Destiny 2 with Warmind. Of course, new gear is the big highlight for Warlock, Titan, and Hunter players, and it’s ultimately why many people play the game. A reveal livestream for DLC didn’t focus much on Exotics other than some talk about changes to existing ones, but the developer subsequently revealed a bunch of images showcasing the new expansion. That includes a look at 14 new Exotic items that will be available for those who buy Warmind. As with other Destiny 2 Exotics, some of these are returning items from the first game, such as the Apotheosis Veil helmet, Claws of Ahamkara gloves, Suros Regime auto rifle, and Armamentarium chest armor.
Others are brand-new; these include the Wormgod gauntlets, Wormhusk Crown helmet, Sanguine Alchemy chest, Oculus Xol helmet, and Huckleberry submachine gun. We don’t yet know exactly how you’ll obtain any of these. The latter, in particular, resembles the Leviathan–it could possibly be a reward added as part of Warmind’s new Raid Lair, Spire of Stars, which is set on the Leviathan. That wasn’t shown during the stream, but Bungie says it’s the Leviathan’s final Raid Lair.
It’s unclear just how many Exotics will be added in total, but other new gear is also being added. Additionally, those playing on PS4 will have a timed exclusive once again; in addition to The Insight Terminus Strike, there will be an armor set for each class available exclusively on the console until at least Fall 2018.
Warmind launches on May 8 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It also introduces the Escalation Protocol event as an endgame activity, new Crucible maps, and much more. The free Season 3 update, 1.2.0, also launches on that day and brings Exotic weapon changes, private matches, Crucible rankings, and much more.
