Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer Dates, Rewards, and Season Pass Detailed
Bungie has officially revealed the next season of Destiny 2, titled Season of the Splicer. The much-awaited Vault of Glass raid from the original Destiny is coming to Destiny 2 in the next season along with new weapons, armour, exotics, public activity, and more.
Season of the Splicer Story
The Vex have attacked the Last City and taken away the light. Ikora reveals that an unlikely ally, Mithrax, Kell of the House of Light, can save us from the Vex. Mithrax, a Sacred Splicer, leads a small group of Eliksni who have the knowledge required to combat the Vex technology.
Helm Upgrades and Public Activities
Season of the Splicer will bring Splicer tech to the Helm and assist in planning response to the Vex incursion. The season will also add a 6-player matchmade activity called Override, where players can use Splicer tech to hack the Vex Network. Along with these, Expunge will be a weekly pinnacle mission, where players will uncover new vulnerabilities in the Vex Network and use Splicer Keys to collapse the network from within.
New Weapons, Armour, and Exotics
Season of the Splicer will add over 30 new and reprised Legendary weapons as well as new armour and ornaments. Bungie is also bringing Armour Synthesis, which feels a lot like a tedious process. The new seasonal artifact is Splicer Gauntlet. The new Exotic weapon and armour pieces are mentioned below:
Cryosthesia 77k is a Stasis-powered sidearm with liquid cooling tech. The trailer shows a Guardian loading a Stasis bullet that freezes enemies. This sidearm will be instantly unlocked after purchasing the season pass for Season of the Splicer.
Star-Eater Scales lets Hunters consume Orbs of Power, allowing them to charge their Super quickly and buff their Super.
The Path of Burning Steps
The Path of Burning Steps is a Titan armour that converts Solar eliminations into increased weapon damage and gives them resistance against Stasis.
Boots of the Assembler
Boots of the Assembler condenses Warlock rifts’ healing or empowering energy into projectiles that seek out allies and blesses them with noble benefits. This seems to work similar to the noble rounds in Lumina Exotic hand cannon.
Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer will run from May 11 to August 24.
