What the Destiny 2 Community Wants from Season 22 Weapons

The Destiny 2 community is eagerly awaiting the launch of Season 22, which is set to happen on August 22. With the upcoming season, players have some clear expectations for new content, especially when it comes to weapons.

In the past, one of the criticisms directed towards Destiny 2 was the lack of unique and compelling weapon designs. Many players felt that the DLCs were simply reskinning existing weapons, leaving them disappointed. This was particularly noticeable in the Lightfall DLC, where the main weapon set consisted of slightly remodeled versions of Shadowkeep weapons.

Now, as Season 22 approaches, players are expressing their desires for new weapons that are not just reskins of old gear. The community hopes for fresh, unique designs that will make the chase for these weapons worthwhile.

The two main expectations for Season 22 weapons, as expressed by the Destiny subreddit, are that they should not be reskins and that they should be worth pursuing. These expectations are understandable for a live-service game that relies on keeping players engaged with new content and a rewarding loot system.

In the previous Lightfall seasons, Season of Defiance and Season of the Deep, the community felt let down as they mainly featured retextured and recycled weapons from previous seasons. This made the regular Legendary-tier weapons visually uninteresting, especially compared to the more exciting Exotic weapons.

Therefore, with Season 22, players are hoping for a more hands-on approach to lower-tier gear. They want Bungie to invest in designing unique and visually appealing weapons that will enhance the gameplay experience and make the chase for gear more rewarding.

Luckily, players won't have to wait long to see what Bungie has in store for Season 22. However, it's important to note that the content for this season has been finalized well in advance and may not have been influenced by the negative response to Bungie's recent State of the Game blog post.

In conclusion, the Destiny 2 community eagerly anticipates Season 22 and hopes for a fresh batch of weapons that break away from previous reskins. They want compelling designs that will make the pursuit of these weapons exciting and worthwhile.
