Traditionally, some of the most sought after gear in Destiny 2 is the weapons and armor that come from the game's raids. And while fans already got a good look at the raid armor for Garden of Salvation, which caused controversy because the armor is technically a reskin of an Eververse armor set from Year, for the first time the full weapon set from the raid has been revealed.
Some players want raid gear to be a complete surprise until they themselves play the raid or start seeing it on other players, so be warned for those who consider seeing raid gear early to be a spoiler, spoilers follow. These weapons and armor are still classified in the database, meaning they cannot be seen on websites that display items in the Destiny 2 database; however, this gear is completely viewable in the Collections tab in Destiny 2 itself.
The weapons that will drop from the raid are a:
- hand cannon
- auto rifle
- sniper rifle
- fusion rifle
- pulse rifle
What does not show as well in the images below is the animation of the lines on each of these weapons, surely to be a raid shader that comes standard on these weapons. Even though these weapons are listed in Collections as obtained from Garden of Salvation, it does not tell exactly how. Players will certainly figure it out as they have in past raids. Every raid has handled its loot pool a bit differently, with weapons that only drop from certain bosses and special curated rolls that drop from specific encounters or challenges. And while it shares some similarities with previous raids, at the time of this writing, the raid has not gone live so it is impossible to know exactly how players will get their hands on these weapons.
The same can be said for the armor, of which each class gets a full set. All the gear in Garden of Salvation will be able to drop up to 960 Power, which is the highest Power level that players can reach by gear alone. Other powerful rewards will get players up to 950, but only pinnacle activities like the raid can drop gear up to 960.
The Garden of Salvation raid goes live Saturday, October 5th at 10 a.m. PDT.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version also in development.
