“Earned Through Glory in the Crucible”

Published on: Nov 4, 2014 @ 16:19

Our Destiny database is nearly finished! While looking through it, I found some interesting weapons, each with a similar description.

‘Crucible Weapons’

In the coming expansions, it looks like we’ll be able to earn new weapons exclusively through Crucible matches. The following are Crucible weapons manufactures:

crucible manu (1)

As you can see, they all have their own (common) emblem, which can be bought from the Guardian Outfitter.

Each of these manufactures has Rare quality level 40 weapons, as well as Legendary quality level 100 weapons. Each of these weapons will have many different upgrade possibilities that are chosen randomly for you.

Some of the weapons include…


Black SUROS ADM-94

A rapid-action Suros firearm, earned through glory in the Crucible.

Black Trung-D

A long range Häkke firearm, earned through glory in the Crucible.

Silvered Warmonger SA/4

A devastating Crux/Lomar launcher, earned through glory in the Crucible.

Currently there’s over 40 different Crucible-specific weapons: 36 primary, 17 special, and 9 heavy.

There’s also rare weapons “Commissioned by Lord Shaxx.

Random Rewards?

It’s interesting that each manufacture has an easy-to-acquire emblem. This leads me to believe that to have a chance at earning one of these weapons, you’ll need to be representing the gun creator via wearing their emblem.

Each of the emblems are sold for only a small amount of Glimmer from the Guardian Outfitter, so basically everyone will be able to easily buy one these.

My guess is that the Rare, quality level 40 weapons, will be introduced in the Dark Below. I think the Legendary, quality level 100 weapons, will be introduced in the House of Wolves.

Do you think it’ll be as simple as equipping the emblem to have a chance at winning a weapon from that manufacturer? Or will there be a bigger event to go along with this?

Lore

We know hardly anything about these weapon manufactures, but the Grimoire does briefly mention Suros and Tex Mechanica.

Suros

Suros engineers designed the Regime using recovered Golden Age schematics. Forced out of production by a crippling shortage of smartmatter, the few remaining models are cherished by those Guardians fortunate enough to wield them.

Tex Mechanica

[…] not going to fix Crucible fights for you idiots just to make your Tex Mechanica junk look good.

/ What was that?

/ Nothing. We’re secure.

/ Calm down. Whole district’s been deserted ever since the Gap. Nobody’s here.

/ Except us. Why’d he make us come out here?

/ Secrecy. I don’t know. He’s our man on the inside; so we humor him. It’s just the quiet making you jump. Help me get this screen set up?

/ I got word from the Consensus says it’s not.

/ So stay. OK. Think it’s working now.

/ Nothing on screen. Do we have a signal?

/ No. Sha – the contact said at 6 sharp.

/ Or we can talk about how you’re going to make this up to me.

/ Ah.

/ My little buddy’s listening. Make him an offer.
