Destiny 2A new exotic quest for the old Destiny 1 Gun sees an alternative version of one of the game’s protagonists, only seen in the E3 2013 trailer, and brings a bit of a breather to the story that never appeared in the finished game.

Hawkmoon is a small, agile and exotic hand cannon dedicated to PlayStation. Destiny 1First year of. Fun and flexible, it was explosive to use and one of the most unique guns in its class, even if it was never in the top tier of deadly weapons.But it didn’t come back Destiny 2, until now. Last week, a new two-part quest was unveiled as part of the Season of the Hunt. Complete both “As the Crow Flies” and “Let Loose Thy Talons” to earn Hawkmoon with new perks. That’s great, but what makes the gun return feel special is the deep cuts buried between the steps of the quest.

The hunting season is also marked Crow’s returnFormerly known as Uldren Sov, the Prince of Reef and one Cayde-6 murderer. Executed for his crimes and reborn as a guardian by Travelers Wright, Crow, unaware of his past, helped players chase rotten hives and fallen enemies scattered across tangled shores. A city that dreams of being busy getting used to the status of a new good man.

The seasonal activity itself is fine, but a small clip of the conversation with Crow after the hunt has helped a lot to tease the potential for upcoming events and embody the character’s new identity. “He’s trying to do some of the things you’ve seen,” says his ghost at some point. “That’s great … and annoying.” And Hawkmoon’s quest seeks to dig deeper into the character’s past as Bungy begins to turn his tragic story into one of the possible redemptions. It shows that.

Crowfly begins by examining a series of strange anomalies scattered throughout the solar system in the shape of gold feathers. Each comes with a small mystery that suggests its location, and the third in the returning Cosmodrome is one of the more mysterious ones. “I’m … somewhere. I know it’s useless. I think it’s a ruin on earth. I’m flying, and these … towers and .. Do you have a ship? I landed on a broken concrete pillar, and I see … myself? But it’s not me. I don’t think it’s ever been. I said ever I’m saying nothing, and … the Guardian is there. Yes. That’s it. “

Each hint can be read as a claw that looks back on dreams and traces past life, but given the complex origins of the character, this has special implications.It comes off as standard Fate Unless you know about Uldren Sov’s previous life, opacity: he Destiny 1Main campaign before returning for a more minor role in The robbed king Expansion. However, this was not always destined to do so.game E3 2013 trailer Crow showed him pointing his gun at a Cosmodrome player. Kotaku report Back to 2015, The character was going to have a much bigger role at some point Destiny 1Minutes of. However, that version of the character was eventually abandoned, and his character model was recycled to the current Uldren Sov after the game’s story made significant changes later in development.

Now the crow is beginning to reach his deadline again, and Bungy nods and elegantly weaves into this alternative version of the character who eventually died on the floor of the cutting room. The quest step with Cosmodrome feathers is called Neverwas, and the “broken concrete pillar” that Crow refers to is very similar to his previous one.Destiny 1 Self is standing on an E3 trailer. The broken pillar at the beginning of the Cosmodrome Step Zone is also where you can find the Hawkmoon Quest collection itself.

Fate Players have always longed for clues about the future of the game, as well as what its creator intended in the past. Bungie was now able to share just a little bit of it in the current game through the weird vision briefly mentioned in the game. Game quest log. “Bungy took seven years to get this back, and I think this is a great way to do that,” wrote one. In the game subreddit.. “Mini TL; DR / Conclusion: Bungy is wandering around an old school D1 geek like me, and I love it.”

I’m still not sure if Crow will be one of Destiny 2It will draw the protagonist, or other unpredictable path, standing side by side with things like Osiris, Zavala, and Ikoraray (perhaps picking up the old Vanguard Mantle of Cade-6?). Destiny 2: Beyond the LightThe main campaign and subsequent story missions have been surprisingly good, but so far the Season of the Hunt has made a slow start. However, Crows are quickly becoming one of the most fascinating characters in the game, and we hope it will continue well beyond this season.
