Wrath of the Machine Weapon Review


The newest Destiny raid weapons look to have taken a leaf out Year 1’s book, deciding to add extra raid-specific perks to the weapons’ intrinsic slots, as opposed to replacing something from the perk tree.

While consistent critical shots grant one of the fastest PvP times-to-kill in the game ... Read More »
