Destiny: The Taken King New Weapons Up Close
Destiny will be getting a host of new content in the upcoming expansion, The Taken King. Check out some of the new toy’s coming to the game, in detailed high-resolution.
Posted online by Bungie 3D artist Matt Lichy, the pictures show detailed close-ups of the Telesto, Suros, and Omolon rifles.
The Telesto rifle was previously announced by Bungie, described as the following.
“An end will come, Guardian. Bring it about sooner with Telesto, a vestige of the Queen’s Harbringers. This Fusion Rifle will attach projectiles to your foes and detonate with a delayed Void blast. Multikills with this weapon will drop Orbs for your allies.”
Check out the weapons in the gallery below:
The Omolon rifle
“Pioneers of energy weaponry, Omolon is the first foundry to experiment beyond the world of combustion ballistics. Sporting lighter ergonomic frames, Omolon weapons all start with generous base handling stats to build from. Omolon talent grids focus on behavioral perks over stat customization. Legendary talent grids are the only weapons that offer three perks: one as the first non-scope upgrade and two as a binary choice in the final column. Perk selection favors perks that are energy based and/or go beyond the weapon to interact with the wielder’s abilities or status.”
The Suros rifle
“Some say the best weapon for a Guardian is the one they can customize to match their intent. Suros believes in options–weapons that can be repurposed for a variety of combat situations. Suros talent grids offer two columns of two stat perks, granting more options for changing weapon stats than any other foundry. The single behavior perk is grounded in the middle of the talent grid as a focus point for the weapon’s core potential. If you want a weapon that can flex from CQ to ranged, quick to powerful, fast handling to hard hitting all with the swap of a few nodes: SUROS.”
Destiny: The Taken King launches on September 15th. Alongside the expansion, Bungie is releasing a substantial update to the game which will feature an overhaul of the quest system as well as a rebalancing of the weapons in the game.
