Future Destiny 2 Exotics Could Have Random Perk Rolls | Game Rant
Destiny 2: Beyond Light appears to be experimenting with giving Exotic weapons random rolled perks. In Season of the Hunt, Destiny 2: Beyond Light gave Guardians their first look at what random-rolled Exotic weapons could look like with the hand cannon Hawkmoon, the first Exotic weapon to feature randomly rolled perks. Now, in Season 13, the new Exotic Scout Rifle Dead Man’s Tale has become the second Exotic weapon with randomly rolled perks.
Dead Man’s Tale is a Kinetic, 120 RPM, Tex Mechanica Scout Rifle, featuring the Exotic perk Cranial Spike. Cranial Spike grants bonus damage and increases reload speed with chained precision hits, stacking up to five times. With the Exotic Catalyst called Dark-Forged Trigger, the weapon gains increased rate of fire when shooting from the hip and removes the hipfire accuracy penalties, making this Exotic Scout Rifle a unique option for Guardians who are fans of The Last Word and are looking for a new Scout Rifle.

The most interesting thing about Dead Man’s Tale is the reappearance of random rolls on an Exotic weapon and the potential implication this has on Exotic weapons in the future. Dead Man’s Tale has nine barrel options, four stock options, and seven options in both the magazine and trait slots. Guardians can acquire these random rolls by completing the Exotic Quest: Presage, similar to how Guardians acquire random rolls of Hawkmoon in the Harbinger Quest.
Thanks for the feedback!
Team isn’t planning to do this for all exotics moving forward. Hawkmoon was the first, but more could see this in the future. It’s a fun new tool in the toolbox, but may not be seen again for a while.

Guardians in the Destiny community have started voicing their concerns over the continued use of random rolls on Exotic weapons. For many Guardians, Exotic weapons are made Exotic by their Intrinsic perks paired with their static perks and unique Trait. Exotics like Thorn are statically rolled and feature an Intrinsic perk with a Trait specifically designed to support the Intrinsic perk.
Introducing random rolls to Exotic weapons could diminish the experience of hunting for a powerful, curated Exotic weapon. While some Guardians may not enjoy the continuation of random rolls on their Exotic weapons, other Guardians may find that the random rolls create a more personalized Exotic weapon experience.
Regardless of if Guardians enjoy or dislike the idea of having more Exotic weapons with random rolls, the idea looks like it will not be a frequent occurrence. The Senior Community Manager at Bungie, dmg04, responded to feedback on Twitter stating, “Team isn’t planning to do this for all exotics moving forward,” leading Guardians to speculate on when more random rolled Exotic weapons could appear in Destiny 2.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

Old Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Leak May Reveal Next DLC Fighter
It’s been nearly two years since Nintendo hosted a proper Nintendo Direct presentation, but that hiatus will come to an end today. The next full-fledged Nintendo Direct presentation is set to take place at 2pm PT later today, and at roughly 50 minutes long, it should be a rather exciting event for Nintendo enthusiasts. Nintendo is keeping most of its Nintendo Direct announcements secret for now, but it has confirmed that the event will feature Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Nintendo didn’t specify what it will be specifically showing in regards to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate during the Nintendo Direct presentation, but the general assumption is that it will reveal a new DLC hero for the game. After all, it’s been a couple of months since the Sephiroth DLC was added, so now is about the time that Nintendo would announce a new character for the game. The next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighter could be just about anybody, but an old leak may have already let the cat out of the bag.

An old Super Smash Bros. Ultimate leak from May 2020 has accurately leaked numerous DLC fighters for the game. This includes Min-Min from ARMS, the aforementioned Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7, and Steve from Minecraft. There are three DLC characters that have yet to be revealed for Fighters Pass Vol. 2, and considering how accurate this leak has been in the past, it wouldn’t be surprising if it were one of the other three characters it mentioned.
The other characters mentioned in the leak are Ryu Hayabusa of Ninja Gaiden fame, Doomguy from the Doom first-person shooter series, and Rayman from Ubisoft’s Rayman platforming games. Ryu and Doomguy have been rumored for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate since before the game even came out, so at this point, it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see them added to the roster. Rayman has also been rumored off and on throughout the years, though some reputable leakers have said that he isn’t in the works for the game.
Luckily, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans don’t have to wait much longer to find out who the next DLC fighter is. As previously mentioned, the Nintendo Direct for February 2021, set to air at 2pm PT today, will likely announce the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighter. It will be interesting to see if it’s one of these characters as leaked.
And if the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighter is Ryu Hayabusa, Doomguy, or Rayman, then the rest of the leak is even more validated, and it’s a safe bet that the remaining two DLC characters will be the other ones mentioned in the list.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out now, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
