CULT OF AEON

The Bungie team has some cool plans to shake up the Aeon suite of Exotics. Here it is straight from the Destiny Dev team on what you can expect when you equip these arms.

Destiny Dev Team: In redesigning the Aeon Cult Exotic armor pieces, the Bungie Dev Team wanted to lean hard into the idea that these are the Exotics you and your fireteam wear when you really want to work together as a team. With that in mind, they had three main goals for the revamped mechanics:

  • Create role-based mechanics that reward you for doing the things that your role is supposed to be good at.
  • Create mechanics that reward other players on your fireteam when you fulfill your role.
  • Give your fireteam incentive for each player to take on a different role.

Instead of having a single, monolithic Exotic perk to handle this, they opted to take a page out of the Armor 2.0 book and give the Aeon Cult Exotics their own, unique mod socket and mods, which are all unlocked as soon as you acquire the Exotic and each of which is tied to one of the different Aeon Cult roles. These mods are identical across the Exotics for all three classes, so you can choose any role regardless of what class or subclass you are playing.

The three Aeon Cult mods, and their associated mechanics, are shown in the image above.

CATALYST COMEBACK 

In a previous TWAB discussing the Destiny Content Vault Bungie mentioned that some of the content being vaulted would affect several Exotic weapon catalysts and they would be temporarily removing them while we worked to update their drop and upgrade sources.

Catalysts for the following weapons have had their drop sources and objectives updated to not be associated with Vaulted content:

  • Bad Juju
  • Izanagi’s Burden
  • Sleeper Simulant
  • The Huckleberry
  • Worldline Zero
  • Polaris Lance
  • Telesto
  • Legend of Acrius
  • Skyburner’s Oath

The catalysts for Whisper of the Worm and Outbreak Perfected are still unobtainable for anyone who hasn’t already earned them and will be added in a future update.
