Destiny gamers face off in what Bungie is calling a race to the death (more specifically ‘Death Race 2015’ were their exact words). In just a few days New Guns and Gear as well as up to Level 33 will be unlocked as players experience Hard Mode of the Crota’s End Raid. The following is a comprehensive list of unlockable gear being added to the game for free through the 188.8.131.52 Destiny Update on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live respectively for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 players of Activision and Bungie’s newest franchise.
Auto Rifle: Abyss Defiant
“We will not go quietly.”
Scout Rifle: Fang of Ir YÛT
“This is the shape and the point of the tooth: nothing has ever lived that will not die.”
Pulse Rifle: Oversoul Edict
“The light of the will of Crota shines down like a vast and inverse sun.”
Hand Cannon: Word of Crota
“There was life, and He spoke unto it, and it was silent, and lived no more.”
“Hard Mode is also the only place to obtain “Crux of Crota,” the final piece needed to upgrade the Eidolon Ally (the gun formerly known as Husk of the Pit) to its full, Necrochasmic glory” – Bungie
Auto Rifle Upgrades: Husk of the Pit >> Necrochasm
“Eternity is very close. Can you feel yourself slipping?”
Ship: Bane of the Dark Gods

Follow us on Twitter. There will be a manual start for Hard Mode. I’ll swing from vine to vine in our studio and give you a glimpse at what it’s like when we push big red buttons. Our target will be 10AM Pacific (West Coast). Just like you, we hit most of what we shoot for. Nevertheless, stay tuned.”
