Destiny 2’s 12th season is almost upon us, and with it comes new ritual and adept weapons that can be acquired through quests. These new gear aren’t available just yet, but Bungie already released the official designs and some players aren’t impressed.
In order to maintain, if not increase the hype, Bungie has been revealing Destiny 2: Beyond Light information bit by bit before its official release date. Some of the most recent reveals are the armor and weapons designs, both of which are receiving a lot of criticism.
In fact, some fans say that they prefer the old designs, or that these new ones are unoriginal and creatively lackluster.
Fans were extremely excited for the Adept weapons to make its way to Destiny 2, especially since they were very popular in Destiny 1. In the first Destiny game, these weapons could be achieved by players who got Flawless during the Trials of Osiris.
When these Trials made its way to Destiny 2, long-time players were looking forward to getting Adept weapons, only to be disappointed that they were not available in the Flawless chests.
Adept weapons are finally making its way to the game this upcoming season, however, the fans are concerned with what Beyond Light has to offer.
The fans’ main complaint is that the weapon looks pretty much just like an old design that’s poorly wrapped in a purple bandanna. Some seem to think that the bandanna is a cool addition, but most players are disappointed.
On the other hand, fans are also comparing the rare armor found in Destiny 1 vs. Destiny 2’s upcoming core activity armor. Twitter user @DestinyNostalgia states that they’re generally a huge fan of Destiny 2’s art team, but this new armor isn’t appealing nor exciting.
I don’t want to sound mean, because the art team for Bungie is awesome, but man the armor in D2 has been super meh for the most part IMO.

Although there are some fans who have rushed to defend Destiny 2, it’s definitely safe to say that the upcoming gear for Beyond Light has mostly been negative. Hopefully, Bungie will be able to win back these disappointed fans once they actually try out the expansion.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light will be available for the PC, PS4, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X this November 10. A PS5 version is also in the works.
