Destiny 2 Anniversary Pack Includes Halo Magnum and Energy Sword

Adding more Halo into Destiny 2!

December 7, 2021

Destiny 2 delivers Halo Combat Evolved magnum with the same iconic aim-down-sight zoom through the Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack, which is now available!

Kept as a secret until the very last moment of launch, the latest trailer for Destiny 2: Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack reveals Halo Combat Evolved Exotic Magnum as well as the well-known Energy Sword from Halo 2.

Previously, Bungie has been revealed that they would have special items and weapons in the 30th Anniversary Pack in Destiny 2, which represent their previous titles. And well, they are creators of one of the most praised shooters of all time: Halo.

Destiny 2 Gets Halo CE Magnum and Halo 2 Energy Sword

While we already knew some Halo-themed armors would be available in the pack, but the latest update revealed even more Halo-themed stuff that you wouldn’t want to miss.

This includes the iconic Halo Combat Evolved Magnum which seems to be an Exotic weapon with a special grenade that is being thrown by the player much similar to Master Chief in Halo CE.

What makes this weapon even lovelier is the fact that when you go aim-down-sight you spot the iconic zoom UI of the weapon that you used to see in the original Halo title.

Also, the developers at Bungie are delivering an Energy Sword that highly represents the popular melee weapon of the same name from Halo 2. That being said, the appearance of the Energy Sword in Destiny 2 has only one side of Halo‘s weapon.

Last but not least, the trailer also showcased a weapon that looks very much like The Battle Rifle from the Halo series, with a similar scope and shooting mode.

Destiny 2 is available for free on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Stadia, and PC. Bungie’s 30th Anniversary Pack is a paid expansion of cosmetics that will cost you $24.99. It is available now across all platforms as the maintenance is almost over.
