“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.

/ We’d better be.

/ 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?

/ It feels criminal.

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

/ You know what I mean. Maybe it’s not against any law. But it’s messing with the Tower. It feels –

lore destiny city/ Dangerous?

/ Wrong.

/ So go home.

/ Yeah, you’d like that, wouldn’t you? You take the credit, get promoted to Division Head, I’m stuck –

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

/ Nothing on screen. Do we have a signal?

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

/ Then he’s late. If he dragged us out here for nothing –

/ Yeah? What are you going to do to him, exactly?

/ Let’s just –

/ We have a signal! OK, here it comes.

/ Static.

/ There –

/ That’s not –

/ You’re not Sha –

/ 99-40. Arcite. Are you Modris Wyndham and Sya Droysen, of the Tex Mechanica Foundry West District?

/ Yes –

/ My owner has instructed me to give you the following message: I don’t have time for lowlife dregs like you. You disgust me.

/ But –

/ My owner has instructed me to continue: Sit down and let the frame talk. I know your type. City bigshots. You can show some damn –

/ Listen –

/ respect. Now listen. I got your message. The answer is no. I’m –

/ But –

/ not going to fix Crucible fights for you idiots just to make your Tex Mechanica junk look good. Do you –

/ Now I wouldn’t put it quite like that –

/ think you’re the first dregs dumb enough to try to buy me? Why do you people think you can buy me? Don’t I have an honest face? Do I look like I need your money? The Crucible is sacred, that’s what you people don’t understand, like you think it’s a game. Now –

/ Damn.

/ this is the part where you start blustering at my little buddy here and telling him it’s all legal down in the City, just business, just sponsorship. So listen: I can have ten Titans crashing through your ceiling any time I like and you can tell them it’s just business.

/ Damn.

/ 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.

    Apparently at some point it looks like there’s going to be a public event where players get to publicly vote for their faction of choice to dispense a certain legendary ship. It looks like there’s an object that is given to vote with and then the winning ship is dispensed…only to those who voted for it? Probably.Seems interesting though.

    I saw this over at destinytracker in the inventory buckets…

    • We talked about those items a bit in the middle of this article: http://planetdestiny.com/destinys-expansion-exotics

      • echelon

        Thanks for pointing that out! I read that article several times but I seemed to have missed that part…

        Thanks for your coverage on this stuff. It really keeps me excited to see what Bungie has up their sleeves in the coming months/years.

  • BOoya956

    I don’t play crucible. Only PvE. Reward system in crucible is broken in my opinion.

    • Sloth

      how so? its random, and most of it is worthless anyway once you achieve a certain level.

    • Hunts Rattata

      Reward system in PvE isn’t much better. Getting 5 coins from a Nightfall isn’t just bad, it’s strictly worse than the 9 coins you can get for doing the easier, weekly version of the same strike.

  • G-Mal

    Looks like Cassoid had something to do with creating the Invective exotic shotgun. The grimoire card for Invective refers to it as a “modified shotgun”, perhaps Cassoid was responsible for creating the ammo-replicating “Invective” modifier. Hence their logo is featured on the side of the barrel and as the modifier icon. (my 1 cent)

    I saw a black suros drop in iron banner today just another rare weapon like silvered hush wind that only drops in crucible

    • They’re already in the game? o.O

      • Alex Howden

        I have gotten them in Iron Banner occasional. Guns like black suros a black suros shotgun, black pulse rifles and a few other. I have also seen 1 or 2 Heavies but can’t remember what company they were from. Most seem to be suros but there is a few from Cassiod and some of the other company’s but no Tex Mechaninica from what I have seen. I have seen them also drop from the Crucible a lot for some reason. Don’t know if this means anything but I thought it was worth pointing out.

        • So you’re saying you’ve seen guns with the “earned through glory in the Crucible” description?

          • Alex Howden

            Yeah a couple of times there always rare quality from what I have seen. I can try my best and find you a picture of one if you want.

          • sure, thanks. or just someone who has one, and I can look it up in their Bungie profile.

          • Alex Howden

            Sorry It took so long to reply I have being hunting the weapon down and final got it. (RNG wasn’t playing nice) You can look at it on my character on ArcDeathLord99. Here is also a picture of it I got on my Ipod. (Sorry the best I had on me at the time.)
            P.S make sure you click on the Xbox live ArcDeathLord99 not the bungie ones.
