After the release of the reveal trailer for Destiny 2‘s first expansion, Guardians looked deeply into the footage for any clues of new content that hasn’t been formally announced by Bungie. So far, the community has been successful with its theories, like the return of old Exotics and the level cap change, but another speculation has recently been questioned.
A screenshot from the Curse of Osiris trailer, seen below, became a highly discussed piece of content after players noticed something peculiar. Two Guardians can be seen jumping across a chasm, with one clearly holding a hand cannon that looks similar to the first Destiny‘s Thorn. Of course, the community believed this was another returning weapon, but after zooming in on the photo, it seems to be a completely different hand cannon.
Players were initially convinced it was Thorn due to a long piece sticking out of the bottom of the gun, which the old hand cannon famously has in its design. However, Thorn’s frame is a seamless design, while the trailer’s hand cannon has a space in the body that makes the extended portion look more like an added bayonet or Ornament. In turn, the hand cannon is likely a brand new weapon, and while that may disappoint players hoping for a returning favorite, it’s nice to see Bungie has more new weapons to offer in the expansion.
The good news is Guardians will learn a lot more about Curse of Osiris before its December 5th launch. Bungie recently revealed the dates and times for three livestreams that will give an in-depth look at the new Mercury setting for the expansion, the many weapons and pieces of armor that will be available to earn, and a few quests that will drive Curse of Osiris‘ story.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
