Gjallarhorn Returns To Destiny For Bungie Anniversary Event

The famed Gjallarhorn rocket launcher will make a reappearance in Destiny 2 to commemorate Bungie’s impending anniversary. The renowned studio, which is responsible for the Halo and Destiny franchises, was founded thirty years ago in 1991. Several speculations surrounding Bungie’s anniversary have lately surfaced, including the possibility of a Destiny 2 and Halo crossover event in the game.

Destiny 2 has been supplemented with in-game events and extra story extensions since its release in 2017. Destiny 2 became a free-to-play title in 2019 employing a “games as a service” model to finance continuous development.

It was acclaimed upon release for making numerous improvements over its 2014 predecessor. Bungie is said to have a lot of material planned for the game’s future, with expansions scheduled for 2023 and beyond. Bungie just announced the official release date for Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, the game’s next expansion, which will be released in February 2022, during Gamescom 2021.


Bungie revealed an upcoming Destiny 2 event during the Gamescom 2021 showcase to commemorate the studio’s thirtieth anniversary. Beginning in December 2021, the in-game event will debut Dares of Eternity, a new free six-player action.

Many homage to Bungie history can be found inside the new mode, including armor from the classic third-person shooter Marathon and a claymore sword referencing the Myth series. A special Destiny 2: Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack will be available for purchase, which contains cosmetic items and a new treasure-themed three-player dungeon.

The dungeon has several classic weapons from the first Destiny, like the Eyasluna pistol and Thousand Yard Stare sniper rifle. Gjallarhorn, a famous and adored rocket launcher from the first game in the series, will be the crown gem of Bungie’s anniversary event.

Gjallarhorn was a mainstay of the original Destiny arsenal, and many players considered it a necessity for completing the game’s endgame content. The unusual weapon fires a huge missile that bursts in mid-air, launching a volley of smaller homing missiles, making it useful against both big raid bosses and swarms of weaker enemies.

Due to the weapon’s popularity, rumors of Gjallarhorn’s return in Destiny 2 have surfaced frequently, but Bungie’s 30th-anniversary event will finally see the destructive rocket launcher reappear in the game.

Bungie’s thirty-year anniversary, as well as the history of the Destiny franchise, will be commemorated with the return of Gjallarhorn. The reintroduction of the deadly exotic has been long anticipated, and a makeover will guarantee that the traditional powerhouse fits within the more current game. Bungie’s anniversary celebration will undoubtedly be an explosive occasion, with many cherished games behind it and many more planned for the future.
