ALL Eris Bounties, PS Exclusives, & Swords!

Published on: Dec 1, 2014 @ 15:58

If you haven’t already seen the patch notes, you can read those here. There was a lot of changes and improvements today!

Our database also has all of the new Exotic changes, and we’ll be doing updated reviews for many of these weapons.

What you didn’t seen in those patch notes are all of the new Eris Morn Bounties, and a few other interesting items.

Eris Morn Bounties

The new bounties from Eris Morn are no longer known as “Hidden Bounties.”

This is most likely all of the bounties that will be available at launch, though more could still be added after Eris has been unveiled on December 9th.eris tower location

Bounties that were newly added in this patch are designated with a *

Warlocks can sleep easy now (see: comments), knowing there’s bounties specific to their class!

New Items

Blade’s Sword

Remember the sword gameplay we saw awhile ago? Now we can use the sword ourselves!

This “Blades of Crota have invaded this world” mini-event allows us to use a Blade’s sword for a short time. It appears that these events are happening on the Moon as well as Earth.

Exotic Shard

First of all, let’s talk about the item Bungie has already announced: the Exotic Shard.

As you’ll notice, Exotics no longer require any Ascendant materials, making them slightly easier to upgrade.

This item will be used for the final upgrade node in any Exotic. They’re obtained from Xur for 7 Strange Coins, or by breaking down an Exotic (1 per Exotic, or 2 if it’s fully upgraded).

You might be asking yourself, “Then what about Ascendant materials?”

Ascendant Materials won’t be going anywhere; they’ll still be needed for Legendary gear.

The 4th Horseman

the 4th horseman exotic shotgun
Timed PS Exclusive until Fall 2015

While technically not a new item, The 4th Horseman Exotic shotgun has received a name change from “Sweet Business” and is also confirmed to be coming in The Dark Below!

We talked about it before Sony officially announced it in this video:


Items that weren’t actually mentioned in the patch notes, are the Crucible Commendation and Vanguard Commendation.

Based on the description in-game, it looks like we’ll get these reward packages once we rank up – but we’ll need to be rank 3 or higher to earn them.

This is probably just a different name for what was already implemented in the game.

Rare Armor

There were a few seemingly random armor pieces added to the database as well.

These are probably the rewards from The Dark Below package.


Knight Type 1

Rustburner 1.5

Nemesis Plane


Knight Type 1

Rustburner 1.5

Nemesis Plane

The Undying Mind

Finally, we got our first look at the timed PS exclusive Strike called “The Undying Mind.”

We published a video a couple months ago showing off some of where it’ll take place, before its name was changed.

An ancient Mind, feared by the Vex themselves, hides among the channels of the Black Garden. Find this machine and end its existence.

Step back into the coveted dangers of The Black Garden to face a timeless Vex machine-beast that has survived for ages. Prepare for firefights amidst vine-laden pillars and decaying paths in an effort to destroy the centuries-old evil.

  • Nice knowing that I lost an exotic sense I got the same shit-ty exotic with my engram from Xûr for the second time (No auxiliary plans) and dismantled it. Also I just achieved rank 3 and got a Doctor Nope without stability which I had to dismantle, if I would’ve had a commision I would’ve picked something different. I hate my luck!

    It looks like the Crota’s End cinematic is now available for everyone to view from Orbit 🙂

    EDIT : It says Eris has landed at the Tower, but I can’t find her, I guess it’s normal since the DLC is scheduled for release on Dec 9, so the reason I’m able to watch the cinematic must be a simple, yet awesome bug…

  • ORB1T4L

    “The Blades of Crota have invaded this world” just saying… 😀

  • Guest

    Titans let us rise up an crush these pitiful foes with our mighty fists for we are not subtle nor are we masters of the arcane arts but when the time comes in the heat of battle we become war machines.

  • ORB1T4L

    Seriously, fuck Bungie, the first exclusive Strike was total crap but this one… A WHOLE YEAR SERIOUSLY ? I feel betrayed, what a nice way to thank the community that raised them to the top. Great.

    • Frank Alamo

      Is not Bungie’s fault, blame activision, after all they handle all the surf related to market, and psn exclusive is one of them

      • ORB1T4L

        Yeah maybe, but still, it was Bungie’s decision to make a deal with Activision… why them ? Why choose to make a deal with such a shitty video games publishing company ? I don’t care what the numbers about CoD and shit say, they just think people are milking cows and it works, brace yourself for a new Destiny in about two years.

        • Frank Alamo

          As u know and every other person who play destiny, the game cost a lot of money to make without mentioning how long did Bungie work on it. All that time and resourses used in the production needed to get pay off. As u know the marketing and reproduction of a product cost money itself and I’m 100% sure that activision was the best party that could get involve and get back the money invested in the game. After all activision have make a really good income out CoD from all this years

          • ORB1T4L

            I have to say, all your points are good. But I can’t help myself but think Activision will screw Destiny up with future yearly releases, it’s part of the reason why I’m done with CoD, I never agreed with the “same shit every year” until recently, I really hope Destiny will NEVER get there, it’s such a great game, I would literally cry like a little girl if it had to happen. It’s honestly my favorite game ever.

          • Frank Alamo

            I totally understand how u feel, destiny is a good game made by a greate company and u don’t want it to get screw, but the truth is that if people want their preferred companies to make good games and for this the money is most important factor, even tho activision could screw destiny, it can make sure dat people will get what they want from Bungie

        • Christian

          I hope you realize ALL publishers are like that. They all would have done the same thing. They don’t do anything for free so they will perform contracts with external organisations and make exclusives.

          EA, GT, Microsoft, Sony Publishing and all the other publishers do exactly the same stuff. Frankly, Activision is one of the better ones. There are a couple of “Timed Exclusives”. That’s good. Microsoft has done things like making players buy a brand new games consoles for exclusives (Halo4, Fotus Armour), making some games entirely exclusives to consoles (Halo, again).

          If Microsoft Published Destiny it wouldn’t even come to Playstation at all, because they fall out over everything. Activision were the right people for the job. At the end of it all, we get everything, exclusive or not. They advertised the game well, had it organised and promoted it fantastically. They didn’t fill it to the brim with micro-transactions or do monthly paymets. When you step back and look at the big picture, they did a much better job than other publishers did. Look at the history of the company “Oddworld Inhabitants”. Watch in amazement at how disgustingly publishers like GT, EA and Microsoft treated them. They treated their company like an animal.

          dude activision has been around since before you were a sperm shut your kid bitching ass up dude we live in a commerce and capital gov. its how this shit goes stop bitching it does nothing but make you look like your a waster of time and space and something that should have swallowed

          • dakota


    • Yea, plus I helped raise them to the top myself when I bought halo 1-4 when I was an xbox/xbox360 owner. now I own a PS4, so I guess I’m getting what I deserve for “raising bungie to the top”

    • TitanGodRace

      lol, raised them to the top. you tweens are adorable.
