Have you gotten your Gjallarhorn in Destiny 2 yet? Earlier this week, Bungie celebrated its 30th anniversary, and developers re-introduced the beloved power weapon back to the game for everyone to get.

The company has also made Forsaken Ciphers available to those who have purchased the Forsaken DLC.

New Weapons

Aside from the Gjallarhorn, there are six new weapons that you can acquire. The first is the Forerunner - an Exotic sidearm that uses Special ammo instead of Primary ammo. It has a perk called The Full Stop that deals increased precision damage to unshielded targets.

The BxR-55 Battler is perfect for those who want to use a pulse rifle that deals potent damage when firing from the hip. It has the perk, Blunt Execution Rounds, that dramatically increases the rifle’s handling and damage after hitting nearby enemies with your melee abilities.

Forsaken Ciphers

Those who bought the Forsaken DLC can now get the Forsaken Ciphers at the Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive in the Tower. The ciphers can be used to acquire the Exotics introduced in Forsaken. So, if you missed any, you can get them now.

If you acquired all the Exotics, you can exchange the ciphers for Ascendant Shards instead.

Additional Changes

The update last Tuesday is quite extensive, which is why some things have not been included in the patch notes. They are:
