Bungie adding Eyasluna to Destiny 2 during 30th anniversary

During the Destiny 2 Showcase in August, fans finally found about Bungie’s plans for the company’s anniversary. The developers announced that the game will have a free event to celebrate thirty years of the company. The event will add some classic weapons from Destiny to the game, which includes the Eyasluna Hand Cannon.

For years, the community has believed that the Eyasluna is still to this day the franchise’s best Hand Cannon. The Legendary Hand Cannon has some great stats and perks. However, with its arrival in Destiny 2, players can expect to see a new perk pool for it. Guardians have a lot of excitement and it looks like Bungie might reveal one very powerful weapon in it.

Better than the Austringer?

However, this isn’t the first time players might have seen something about Eyasluna in Destiny 2. During Season of Opulence in the Forsaken era, the developers had added an Hand Cannon in the Austringer. Many fans of the game had called the weapon to be the second coming of the Eyasluna. However, it wasn’t quite the same, and it looks Bungie will add the iconic Destiny Hand Cannon for fans to play with the real thing.

It remains to be seen how both Eyasluna and the Gjallarhorn will play with its arrival in Destiny 2. Both weapons will have new perk pools and stats. However, fans don’t want the weapon to drastically change from the Destiny version. So, Bungie has a very fine line to walk in order to adapt this weapon for the franchise’s latest title.
