Strand, as we now know, is the brand new subclass coming to Future 2 with the launch of Lightfall. Osiris himself now not has the Mild, the facility which retains Guardians alive, so it’s attention-grabbing to notice right here that he’s the one wielding Strand and educating Guardians about it. It’s described as one thing that everybody has inside them and isn’t associated to the Mild, which is necessary for the narrative forward.
Our finish begins
The Witness’ ship is proven within the ViDoc and we’re knowledgeable that they’ll lastly materialize bodily to face off in opposition to the Traveler. This would be the first time gamers have seen the bodily manifestation of The Witness within the sport, and when it’s adopted by the quote, “Massive shit goes down,” we are able to’t assist however really feel that’s considerably of an understatement. Concerned in that “huge shit” might be Crow, Amanda, Petra, and Devrim Kay. That is the primary time shortly these characters have been closely concerned in an enlargement’s storyline, however it stays to be seen wherein context.
New weapons incoming
A number of new weapons had been proven off within the trailer, considerably not directly. In numerous cutscenes and stills new weapons and armor could possibly be seen.

The Titan’s helmet appears new and could possibly be an Unique we haven’t seen but. The Quicksilver Storm from the pre-order bonuses is proven off, in addition to a Strand monitoring pistol that Bungie has beforehand revealed.
Guardian ranks and loadouts
Guardian ranks have been introduced by Bungie already, however a brand new display screen exhibits how this method will look when logging in after Lightfall releases. There are 11 ranks to attain, and every rank has particular person sections of options for methods wherein gamers can obtain the following rank. This isn’t locked to particular content material, and Bungie stipulates that these are solely options and never necessities.
The brand new loadout screens present all geared up mods and all armor items on one display screen in addition to some new weapon perks and armor mods. The seasonal sword is Photo voltaic power and might roll with Incandescent, that means that it could unfold scorch stacks to enemies leading to igniting them and inflicting enormous injury. The seasonal grenade launcher has the flexibility to roll with the Volt Shot perk. If Guardians acquire the flexibility to make use of blinding grenades and volt shot it may rapidly enter the brand new meta, particularly in PvP. Round Logic, one other seasonal weapon, is proven to roll with the Hatchling perk which we are able to assume is said to the brand new Strand subclass and the threadlings linked to it.
By way of armor mods, one new addition is the Font of Vigor arms mod which causes gamers to realize a short lived armor cost when amassing an orb of energy. Armor Cost is proven to offer a bonus to the energy statistic, and decays over time. Melee Kickstart now additionally positive aspects a short lived Armor Cost.
