How To Get The Gjallarhorn In Destiny 2
Early adopters of the game will be able to purchase the title this year, equipped with some tasty classic weapons that include the Eyasluna Handcannon and the sword from Bungie’s Myth. Whilst the December Party will be a free event, players can alternatively purchase an anniversary pack that includes a Dungeon (set in the original Destiny’s Loot cave) alongside the exotic Gjallarhorn itself.
What Is The Gjallarhorn: Destiny 2
The Gjallarhorn was an exotic rocket launcher found in the original Destiny game, equipped with tracking missiles that operated independently from the warheads themselves. Originally, the weapon was obtainable via the Beauty in Destruction mission – however, players who purchase the 30th-anniversary pack get it as an additional extra.
The Gjallarhorn was hugely popular in the original game, often being the key for getting players into certain raid groups. The weapon players a key part in the Guardians taking down Atheon, Crota, and more bad guys from the original saga.
Whilst the gun won’t be identical to the original offering, Bungie promises fans of the game that it will live up to expectations.
Finally, Bungie is also launching a Nerf version of the gun, available at the same time as the release of the title.
