Destiny 2 hides Gjallarhorn behind a paywall

One of the most anticipated weapons in Destiny 2 will be locked behind a paywall since Bungie decided to cash in on their own anniversary.

Bungie is known as a stingy company and in case the excitement for the pile of news they announced on August 24 removes the rose-tinted glasses from the fans, they will probably start providing negative feedback over the decision to make the Gjallarhorn portion of a paid bundle.

The 30th-anniversary bundle in Destiny 2 will cost $25 and will include:

  • Pirate-themed dungeon
  • Thorn-inspired armour set
  • Bungie-themed ornaments and cosmetics
  • Claymore Sword from Myth (1997)
  • Gjallarhorn
  • ...and more

Conspicuously, this bundle features armour and ornament sets while the latest season pass is missing its own armour set. Yes, they announced it ahead of time but it doesn't change the fact this feels like content was cut out of the pass without reducing the price and now it's put into a different bundle that will cost a separate $25. The price tag also dangles one of the best weapons from the original Destiny in front of the fans' noses in an attempt to entice them.

Considering this is a game that costs about as much as a AAA title at any given time, has microtransactions and season passes, it once again feels greedy that they are putting an anniversary pack up for sale.

The announcement itself was vague at some points and the new six-player activity will have "new secrets to unravel, and collectable rewards that commemorate our long and storied history". Maybe some of this content will be available through the activity but it remains to be seen.
