Rise of Iron expansion will feature two Gjallarhorns, the standard one we already know and love, and the new Destiny: Rise of Iron Gjallarhorn. Speaking in an interview, Eric Osborn revealed that Rise of Iron expansion will not only allow you to have your standard Gjallarhorn but new Iron Gjallarhorn is separate from it.
There will be two separate items in your inventory and the new Iron Gjallarhorn isn’t a customized version of the original. There is a chance that we may be able to dual-wield Gjallarhorn but even if that is the case, don’t expect that to happen in PvP.
Gjallarhorn is very a powerful weapon and dual-wielding means you might become untouchable. This doesn’t fit with Bungie’s vision of keeping everything balanced. However, dual-wielding Gjallarhorn would be really amazing.
We can still expect the same level of features and types of attacks from Iron Gjallarhorn, but they won’t be as effective as they were in base Destiny.
Powerful missiles and homing cluster bombs are still at your disposal but Destiny: Rise of Iron won’t allow it to become an overpowered weapon of mass destruction like it has been for a long time.
Destiny’s new expansion is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in September. Rise of Iron isn’t coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Bungie explained why:
In order to add new content at this time, and especially on the scale and scope of Rise of Iron, we would have to take away from those older consoles, you would have to lose something. We still wanna make sure that people playing on legacy consoles still have all the content that they paid for to date.
Destiny: Rise of Iron adds new enemies, brings Lord Saladin to the limelight and explains his backstory.
