Next week will officially mark the beginning of August, and you can help alleviate some of the almost-end-of-summer blues by buying yourself a shiny new gun from Destiny’s weekly Armsday event.
In case you’re new to Destiny or you just never bothered to check out Armsday until now, Armsday is a weekly Destiny event which happens every Wednesday. Banshee-44, the Tower’s resident Gunsmith vendor, offers a selection of special Legendary tier weapons which players can place orders for by spending Glimmer. Once an order is placed, the player must wait until the next Armsday event (so the next Wednesday after their order is placed) to pick up their weapon. The types of perks which each Armsday weapon can have is randomized, and players can actually wait to pick up their order over multiple weeks since the weapon will be given new perks each week it isn’t picked up.
However, in order to earn the ability to purchase orders in the first place, players must first progress their Gunsmith reputation track by taking the free test weapons which Banshee-44 offers and completing specific tasks with them (kill a certain number of a specific enemy faction, earn a certain number of PvP kills, etc.).
Below you’ll find a list of the weapon orders and test weapons which Banshee-44 is offering during the week of July 26:
• Lyudmila-D Häkke Pulse Rifle
• Herja-D Häkke Pulse Rifle
• ARI-45 Suros Auto Rifle
• Gaheris-D Häkke Hand Cannon
• Kumakatok HC4 Omolon Hand Cannon
• Omolon Test HC1 Hand Cannon – Score precision kills
• Häkke Test-A Pulse Rifle – Earn Crucible kills
• Häkke Test-A Hand Cannon – Earn double kills
• Omolon Test RR1 Sniper Rifle – Kill Fallen Captains
• Suros TSP-10 Pulse Rifle – Kill Vex
