Destiny 2 Curse Of Osiris: All The New Masterworks Weapons We've Gotten (So Far)
By Chris Pereira on
Destiny 2's new 126.96.36.199 update makes a variety of changes and additions. Undoubtedly the most significant piece of content is the arsenal of Masterworks weapons. These can be obtained in a variety of ways, but they're now among the most desirable weapons in the game.
Masterworks are variants of Legendary weapons. They differ in a number of ways; for instance, they track either Crucible or PvE kills and provide Orbs whenever you pull off a multi-kill. But their most important distinctions are the weapon stat bonuses they provide, which include things like enhanced stability or reload speed. Aside from their usefulness, these stats can be re-rolled, meaning two Masterworks won't necessarily be identical to each other. The process of re-rolling stats is called "Reworking" a weapon, and doing so costs both Legendary Shards and Masterwork Cores, the latter of which can only be obtained by breaking down unwanted Masterworks.
Masterwork Cores are also used to turn a standard Legendary into a Masterworks version. Alternatively, Masterworks weapons will begin to drop once you reach Power level 250. Drops in the Raid and Trials of the Nine have a "very high chance" of being Masterworks, so those will be your best way to farm both weapons and Cores.
Bungie plans to expand Masterworks to other types of gear, not just weapons. The developer also intends to highlight the kill tracking in more ways, such as displaying it on the Crucible kill screen.
In the gallery above, you can check out a selection of Masterworks we've acquired so far. This includes screenshots of the new UI elements you'll find when inspecting a weapon, which is where you'll Rework a Masterwork or upgrade a Legendary into one.
