Bungie just started Fate 2: Season of the Splicer on Tuesday, which means the game has just been filled with a variety of new exotic weapons and armor.
Season of the Splicer already offers a new exotic weapon for players and three new exotic armor pieces. But it looks like Bungie has some surprises in store too. Here are all the exotics that we know to come in Season of the Splicer.
[Note: There are some light gear spoilers in this post, as we look into some evidence both in and outside of Destiny 2 that suggest other, unconfirmed Exotics are coming this season.]
Cryosthesia 77K – Stasis Sidearm
Cryosthesia 77K is the new Season of the Splicer Season Pass weapon. Players who own the season pass can pick it up immediately, while free players must reach level 35 to unlock it.
Cryosthesia 77K has two exotic benefits. The first is LN2 Burst, which offers a variable trigger for the weapon. Players can tap the trigger to fire shots like a normal sidearm. Guardians can also hold the trigger down to fire a charged stasis shot at enemies and freeze them instantly. The charged shot is only available when the second exotic perk, liquid cooling, is active.
Liquid cooling is activated as soon as players receive a fatal blow while the weapon is in standard fire mode. The liquid cooling allows players to fire the charged stasis shot that uses up the rest of the weapon magazine.
This is the player’s first stasis energy weapon – when Bungie added stasis in Beyond Light, the Grip Grenade Launcher of Heavy Redemption was the only stasis weapon players were given. While being a stasis weapon is interesting enough for its own rite, the Cryosthesia 77K also goes into the Kinetic slot, which is usually reserved for weapons with no elemental affinities.
Star eater scales – hunter’s legs
The Star Eater scales come from either the Master or Legend Lost sectors, similar to Season of the Chosen. Every day there is a featured Master or Legend Lost sector that offers a different Exotic armor slot as a reward if you complete it on your own. Wait for the leg tag and complete the Lost Sector until it drops.
The Star Eater Libra features the Festival of Light Exotic Perk. This benefit causes hunters to gain bonus super energy when picking up Orbs of Power. Picking up Orbs of Power with a full super overwhelms the hunter, healing him when he casts his super and increasing his super damage. In the event of maximum overload, hunters also receive an overshield.
The path of the burning steps – titanium legs
The path of the burning steps comes from either the Master or Legend Lost sectors, much like Season of the Chosen. Every day there is a featured Master or Legend Lost sector that offers a different Exotic armor slot as a reward if you complete it on your own. Wait for the leg tag and complete the Lost Sector until it drops.
The path of the burning steps is associated with the firewalker perk. Firewalker causes solar kills to gradually increase weapon damage. Titans are also more difficult to slow down or freeze while in stasis, and they will not take damage when breaking out of a frozen state. Breaking out of stasis also causes a solar explosion around Titan.
Assembler’s Boots – Warlock Legs
The assembler’s boots come from either the Master or Legend Lost sectors, much like Season of the Chosen. Every day there is a featured Master or Legend Lost sector that offers a different Exotic armor slot as a reward if you complete it on your own. Wait for the leg tag and complete the Lost Sector until it drops.
The Assembler’s boots are endowed with the “Blessing of Order” perk. This perk gives warlocks a bonus when they are in a healing rift. While the blessing of order is active, the warlock brings forth noble seekers who hunt down allies not in your rift and heal them. Each ally healed by a Noble Seeker also grants the warlock and ally a damage buff. Each time a Noble Seeker affects an ally, the warlock’s healing rift also increases its duration.
Unconfirmed exotic weapons
There seem to be two unconfirmed exotics fate 2: Season of the splicer.
The first is an easy guess if you are a Destiny veteran. Vex Mythoclast, the exotic fusion rifle that fell from the Atheon at the end of Vault of Glass, is back. Players can go to their in-game collection and find an ornament called The Untold Tale for the Vex Mythoclast that confirms its existence.
Because it’s in too Fate 2In the API we can also see the updated benefits. According to the Light.gg Destiny database, Vex Mythoclast has two exotic benefits Fate 2. The first is Timeless Mythoclast, in which the gun fires a single fusion rifle bolt with each trigger. This suggests that the weapon is not fully automatic like the original fate Execution. But the advantage of the same name in Fate 1 used the same language, so Fate 2The Mythoclast will likely function very similarly to its original version.
Vex Mythoclast’s second exotic advantage in Fate 2 is temporal unlimited. Defeating targets with Vex Mythoclast will result in an overload. Players can switch fire modes once they’re completely overloaded – likely by holding the reload button – and holding the trigger to reload linear fusion rifle shots. Linear fusion rifles are usually reserved for the heavy ammo slot only and kill enemies with a single headshot.
The new Vex Mythoclast also features a catalyst that adds the benefit of calculated balance. This results in higher overload stacks to increase the stability of Vex Mythoclast.
There is also a mysterious exotic scout rifle ornament in Fate 2Collection. It is classified, which is quite unusual for an ornament. For example, the Vex Mythoclast ornament is not classified even though the weapon is not yet in the collection. It is probably a hidden ornament for a secret exotic. However, since this is just a wildcard classified node, it also means we have no idea what this weapon might be.
While it is possible that Bungie could add another exotic weapon this season – by increasing the number of exotic weapons from likely three to four – there is only evidence for the ones mentioned here. Bungie will update its database as the season progresses, so we should learn more about these unconfirmed exotics in a few weeks’ time.
