New Destiny 2: Beyond Light Trailer Shows Off Impressive New Exotics

Only one more month to go before Guardians can dive right into Destiny 2: Beyond Light, but while we wait Bungie has shared a new trailer detailing some impressive new exotics on the way. 

The latest trailer, seen below, cycles through the new gear that players can look forward to, but what was most impressive was the new exotics shown. A big focus of feedback since launch is that ‘new’ gear coming into the Destiny sequel was recycled. Out of everything shown regarding this top-tier loot, most of it was new, though there is one returning drop and a nifty new redesign. 

Here are exotics shown off in the trailer above, starting with one that is coming back:
