A Destiny 2 weapon keeps showing up in cutscenes, and now we know why

A Destiny 2 weapon called Khvostov 7G-02 has appeared in Lightfall cutscenes, leaving players wondering why this weapon, which players receive early on as part of the FPS game’s New Light campaign, seems to spawn without a good one. raison. This has led some players to suspect it might return as an Exotic weapon, but Bungie hints that won’t happen. In a recent post as part of the Destiny 2 team’s This Week at Bungie blog series, film director James Meyers explained why this weapon appears seemingly randomly.

Meyers explains that a specific story pacing tone required the player to begrudgingly aim a weapon. If implemented, it would require a particular animation compared to what game cutscenes normally require. Since some weapons can give “dumber results” in real-time cutscenes, Meyers suggested a “default weapon” the team could come up with in cases where the team needs something specific. He suggested the Khvostov because it’s the first weapon every Guardian receives in the New Light campaign, and in a sense it could be considered one of the few weapons every player has encountered at least once. times in the multiplayer game.

However, Lightfall presented the team with several visual bugs, especially those with less standard animation formats such as glaives and bows. The animation team was “on edge” closing cutscenes, and a new set of animations would have cost valuable time.

“For this reason, we made the decision to use the same default logic in cases where a visual error would hurt the quality bar we aim to achieve,” Meyers explains in the post.

In the original Destiny, the Khvostov was also the first weapon players would get. In this game, it returned as an Exotic, which added to the excitement that the Khvostov could appear as another weapon on the Destiny 2 Lightfall Exotics list. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Meyers also notes that some Destiny 2 Season 20 animations respect The Guardian’s decision to use a default helmet in common areas, and future animations will consistently recognize this where appropriate.

The post also shows how animators should work to render footage to achieve the perfect framing of the scene, showing an example of what players see during an animated scene and the character models and settings that lead to this shot. .

So while it doesn’t look like Khvostov will return as an Exotic in Lightfall, there are still plenty of other great weapons to get your hands on this season, such as the Destiny 2 Final Warning Exotic weapon and the Winterbite. Exotic Glaive from Destiny 2.
