Destiny 2 will officially launch a week from today, which means we’ll likely be switching over to cover the sequel as part of our weekly Armsday roundup (assuming Destiny 2 does indeed have its own version of Armsday). However, before all that goes down, there’s still an Armsday in the original Destiny to look at, so read on to see which new weapon rolls and test weapons are available.
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 August 30:
• Suros ARI-45 Auto Rifle
• Suros DIS-43 Scout Rifle
• Hakke Gaheris-D Hand Cannon
