Unique Item

Universal Wavefunction – Exotic Ship


“I believed your presence at the genesis of the Infinite Forest would lead to a comprehensive understanding of the Vex. When will I learn that things are never so simple?” —Ikora

“The fluid itself is not the Vex. If their consciousness could be contained in such a state, it would have manifested in other states by now.” Ikora looks up from the terminal. “Perhaps Lakshmi’s device is the key. Was I wrong to dismiss it?” She chuckles. She does that a lot more, lately. “Probably. I was wrong about a lot of things.” She paces, hands behind her back. “If understanding their ability to manipulate simulations and, in doing so, appear to travel to different times is our goal, then…” She stops and turns to look… at me? “What do you think, Ophiuchus?” She hasn’t spoken to me in 22,303 days. I haven’t spoken to her in almost as long. I’m speechless. “You’re not just my Ghost. We were friends, once. I want to know what you think.” I try to maintain my composure. I don’t think it works. “I’m glad you asked.”

Aug 09: This Week at Bungie – Menagerie of previews

Aug 02: This Week at Bungie – A Trip Down Memory Lane

Aug 07: Destiny 2 Year Two Combat Reveal Stream

Info from Bungie Blog Post – August 09, 2018

This week at Bungie, we demonstrated the evolution of combat in the second year of Destiny 2.

During an action-packed livestream, we showed off the changes that all players can expect, including our new weapon slot system, random rolls, more meaningful weapon mods, and a decreased time to kill in the Crucible (crispy three taps and spicy Devils!). All Destiny 2 players can experience a preview of our sandbox updates on August 28.

One topic that we’ve seen a lot of questions about is how we’ll migrate from old weapon mods to new weapon mods. Starting on August 28, your current mods will be deprecated, and your inventory will tell you that you can safely discard them for materials and parts. On September 4, the Gunsmith’s inventory will be dedicated to new Forsaken mods.

Between now and the preload on August 28, use your Year 1 mods to lock in the elemental damage type you want for your Year 1 weapons. They will retain that damage type after the mod deprecation. On August 28, the old mod slot will go away, and you will no longer be able to insert any mods into Year 1 gear or change the elemental damage type. Some weapons will be moving to the Kinetic Slot and will not retain elemental damage regardless of what mod you had applied. The IKELOS Sniper Rifle and Shotgun will be locked to Solar. Here are the Legendary weapons that will be moving to Kinetic:

  • Baligant
  • Shepherd’s Watch
  • Hawthorne’s Field-Forged Shotgun
  • Alone as a God
  • Perfect Paradox
  • The Frigid Jackal
  • Silicon Neuroma

Cayde’s Exotic Stash

Since the reveal of Destiny 2: Forsaken, players have asked whether or not Cayde’s Exotic Stash will be included with pre-orders directly from platform online marketplaces. We can confirm that this pre-order bonus will be available to all players who purchase through the PlayStation, Xbox, and online stores before launch.

Additionally, shown below is what players can expect to become available to them in Year 2, based off of title ownership. For information on purchase eligibility from other retailers, players should visit the official page.
