It's Official: Hawkmoon Will Return To Destiny 2 In Beyond Light
On its charity livestream, Bungie showed off a Destiny 1 Exotic that'll be coming back to Destiny 2 this fall.
Bungie shared a few looks at what's coming to Destiny 2 in the Beyond Light expansion on a charity livestream, confirming that the Destiny 1 Exotic hand cannon Hawkmoon will return to the game this fall. Hawkmoon was a fan favorite weapon, and it'll get some slight tweaks when it makes its way to Destiny 2.
Director Luke Smith announced the return of Hawkmoon on Bungie's charity Twitch stream to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. As of this writing, the stream has garnered more than $600,000 in donations. Bungie offered several "stretch goals" to encourage fans to donate, with Smith making the Hawkmoon announcement at the $500,000 mark.
In Destiny 1, Hawkmoon carried a perk called "Luck in the Chamber," which caused one random bullet in the gun's magazine to do significantly more damage than all the others. Some other guns had the Luck in the Chamber perk to get one bullet with bonus damage, but the thing that set Hawkmoon apart was that it carried three, which could make it extremely powerful if you got a lucky few shots in a row.
Smith said Hawkmoon would maintain that measure of luck, since it's pretty essential to the gun's identity. But it'll be tweaked some in Destiny 2, it sounds like, to be better balanced for PvP activities.
Bungie also showed off two other pieces of concept art from Beyond Light. The first gives a look at "Stasis," a new material that'll appear in Beyond Light that relates to the new Darkness powers that players will utilize in the expansion. The other shows a Legendary weapon that you'll discover on the new location of Europa.
