All profits from the emote, available now in the Eververse, will be split equally between the Bungie Foundation and Team Rubicon.”

Deterministic Recoil

Starting in Season 22, all weapons with a Season 22 or later watermark will have deterministic recoil. This applies to:

  • Auto Rifles
  • Pulse Rifles
  • Scout Rifles
  • Submachine Guns
  • Sidearms
  • Hand Cannons
  • Trace Rifles
  • Machine Guns

This includes all types of primary ammo weapons: automatic, burst-fire, and semi-automatic.

“Here’s how it works: 

A weapon is set up with a few possible recoil patterns. The weapon will always start with the first pattern. Most of the time, it will run through this recoil pattern until you stop firing for long enough to let the weapon’s recoil and accuracy reset completely. Occasionally, somewhere in the first half of the magazine, it will switch to another pattern. 

Each bullet fired has a small amount of randomness to it, due to the accuracy cone (a.k.a. error angle) placing the bullet somewhere in a radius around the target point. 

The entire pattern shifts left and right, dependent on the weapon’s recoil, with higher recoil direction having smaller horizontal spacing. But even as a recoil direction stat changes, the pattern will still be recognizable.”

The Final Shape Supers

Warlock: Song of Flame

Unleash your inner phoenix with every attack. Buff your weapons, allies, and harness the living Solar flame.

Hunter: Storm’s Edge

Dagger in hand, become the Arc flashing in the darkness; the edge of the storm your enemies cannot outrun.
