Guide for Exotic Weapon Perks

Exotic items in Destiny are rare items that are symbolised by the Gold colour in the game. Every player is able to be equipped by only one Exotic Weapon and one Exotic Armor at a given time. These items are usually purchased via Agent of the Nine with Strange Coins.

Exotic weapons are known to perform better than other weapons in the game. Some of the weapons are also known to have hidden perks that make them function differently than other normal weapons.

Below is a list of compilation from Redditors on that act like Exotic Weapon Perks guide:

  • Thunderlord- Firefly-esque effect that triggers randomly on kill
  • Icebreaker- Breaks a Hive Knight's Shield if it is shot as he is putting it up, Ballistic perks affect recoil pattern
  • Gjallarhorn- Rockets explode when in proximity to the target (Grenades and Horseshoes)
  • Truth- Holds 3 in the magazine rather than the 2 which the tooltip suggests, also hold more rockets than regular RL's
  • Super Good Advice- can hit oracles, oversoul, Crota's shield and detain bubbles and have them count as misses
  • Mida Multitool- Causes Enemies to stagger almost always up until Majors or Shields
  • The Last Word- Fanfire perk not only allows Full Auto but increases fire rate by about 30%
  • Suros Regime- Can be fired faster while using Focused Fire if used like a Scout Rifle
  • Thorn- Over penetrates and gives the visual posion effect but without the damage even while the perk is locked
  • Plan C- Provides a boost to agility
  • Vex Mythoclast- Doesn't deal reduced damage to majors due to it being a special weapon
  • Claws of Ahamkara- Boost grenade cool down rather than melee speed
  • Heart of the Praxic Fire- Extends the length of Song of Flame for a Sunsinger

Players have to note that this list is not a complete one and there has been not official list from Bungie, reported Gameranx.

Teen Confesses Deliberate Game Data Deletions

A 17-year-old with an alias 'Chris' has confessed to deliberately deleting Destiny and GTA 5 data of other gamers, by hiding his identity and doing it in his friend's PSN account.

However, he has been remorseless for what he has done and when GameInformer interviewed him, he said, "Suck it up and move on with life. What else is there to say?"

He used to convince other players on the online modes that he can help them to progress in the game and used to ask for remove control of their PS4 via SharePlay functionality. Once the controls were with him, he used to got to their game menu's and delete files, reported GameSpot.
