Just on the heels of Destiny 2‘s Forsaken launch, data miners have discovered a heap of intriguing information about the upcoming expansion, including a list of new and returning Exotics and the Power level requirements for the Last Wish raid.

According to Reddit user ninth_reddit_account, the latest Forsaken pre-launch 2.0 patch housed over 1,643 new items for the game. Within the list, the player found a handful of Exotic weapons and armor that Guardians will be able to acquire in the DLC. While there will likely be more gear on top of the uncovered list, players can get a sneak peek at 12 weapons and 12 armor pieces, as well as their perks, ahead of launch.

Weapon

  • Cerberus+1 (Kinetic Auto Rifle)
    • Perk: Four-Headed Dog – Shoots erratic bullets from all gun barrels at the same time
  • Wish-ender (Kinetic bow)
    • Perk: Queen’s Wrath – While aiming down sights with a fully-drawn bow, enemies behind walls are highlighted
  • Trinity Ghoul (Energy Bow, Arc)
    • Perk: Split Electron – Fires an arrow that splits when released. Aiming down sights and fully drawing the bow both decrease the spread
  • One Thousand Voices (Power Fusion Rifle, Solar)
    • Perk: Ahamkara’s Eye – Charging this weapon unleashes a giant continuous beam of death
  • Malfeasance (Kinetic Hand Cannon)
    • Perk: Explosive Shadow – Shoot tainted slugs that burrow into the enemy. Stacking enough slugs causes them all to explode
  • Ace of Spades (Kinetic Hand Cannon)
    • Perk: Momento Mori – Reloading after a kill loads magazine with a few extra-damage bullets. Grants radar while aiming down sights
  • The Queenbreaker (Power Linear Fusion Rifle, Arc)
    • Perk: Wire Rifle – Fires a long-range precision Arc bolt that blinds enemies on hit
  • Two-Tailed Fox (Power Rocket Launcher, Void)
    • Perk: Twintails – Shoots two rockets, one Void and one Solar, that can track onto the same target
  • The Chaperone (Exotic Shotgun)
    • Perk: Precision Slug – Fires a single-slug precision round
  • Lord of Wolves (Exotic Shotgun, Solar)
    • Perk: Shrapnel Launcher – Fires a powerful short-range burst of Solar damage
  • Black Talon (Sword, Void)
    • Perk: Crow’s Wings – Press to fire off a projectile cross combo
  • Wavesplitter (Energy Trace Rifle, Void, PS4 exclusive)
    • Perk: Harmonic Laser – Laser damage has three power levels that oscillate while the trigger is held down

Armor

  • Chromatic Fire (Warlock Chest)
    • Perk: Crystalline Transistor – Precision kills with your Kinetic weapon create an explosion in the element of your equipped subclass
  • Phoenix Protocol (Warlock Chest)
    • Perk: Battle-Hearth – Kills and assists you make while standing in your Well of Radiance return Super energy
  • Contraverse Hold (Warlock Gauntlets)
    • Perk: Chaotic Exchanger – Charging your grenade with Chaos Accelerant, Consume, or Radioactive will give damage resist. Charged grenade hits return a random amount of grenade energy
  • Geomag Stabilizers (Warlock Leg)
    • Perk: Close Enough – When Chaos Reach Super energy is almost full, sprinting tops it off. Damaging enemies with Chaos Reach extends its duration
  • Heart of Inmost Light (Titan Chest)
    • Perk: Overflowing Light – Using a grenade, melee, or Barricade ability empowers you, granting increased damage and resistance. While empowered, the next ability you use has faster regen
  • Ursa Furiosa (Titan Gauntlets)
    • Perk: Ursine Guard – Move faster while guarding when Sentinel Shield is active. Guarded damage converts to Super energy when the Super ends
  • One-Eyed Mask (Titan Helmet)
    • Perk: Vengeance – Marks the enemy that dares to damage you. Track down and destroy your enemy for increased damage and overshield
  • Antaeus Wards (Titan Leg)
    • Perk: Reflective Vents – Improved slide. Sliding reflects incoming projectiles. Reflecting projectiles grant Super energy
  • Gwisin Vest (Hunter Chest)
    • Perk: Roving Assassin – Each Spectral Blades kill you make before going into stealth will restore more of your Super energy
  • The Sixth Coyote (Hunter Chest)
    • Perk: Double Dodge – Gain a second dodge charge
  • Oathkeeper (Hunter Gauntlets)
    • Perk: Adamantine Brace – Bows charge faster, and charges can be held indefinitely
  • Shards of Galanor (Hunter Gauntlets)
    • Perk: Shard Edges – Hits and kills with Blade Barrage will return Super energy after the Super ends

The new gear will come in handy in several areas of the expansion, especially the raid. According to a separate Reddit thread from user kevindavid40, the Power Level required to enter the normal version of Last Wish will be 520. With most Guardians currently in the middle to high ends of 400 Power, they’ll need to boost their Power significantly to partake in the raid. As for the Prestige version of Last Wish, Guardians will need at least 600 Power to enter.

The raid will also be divided into five realms, which are basically rooms with puzzles, waves of enemies, or both. Within the realms, fireteams will have seven encounters to defeat, with the final in the fifth realm being the mysterious raid boss.

As previously revealed by Bungie, the Dreaming City’s raid activity won’t be available until September 14th, a little over a week after Forsaken launches. Still, with the Power level requirements now out in the open, it seems Guardians will benefit from the week-long wait. In that time, players should be able to slowly increase their Power by participating in the DLC’s new campaign, Gambit mode, and new Exotics hunt.

Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Forsaken DLC will arrive on September 4th.
