Destiny 2’s Gamescom trailer hides Shadowkeep Exotics, Artifact, and map updates


Bungie revealed how Finishing Moves work during its time at Microsoft’s Inside Xbox Gamescom showcase on Monday. But inside the packed trailer, the studio hid a host of new changes coming to Destiny 2: Shadowkeep this fall. We’ve rounded up what we were able to find, including new Exotics, difficulties, and Artifact mods.

Click on the video below, from YouTuber xHOUNDISHx, to see the gameplay from the showcase.


With Shadowkeep, like all Destiny 2 expansions, players will earn a host of new Exotic weapons and armor. Between the trailer and some press release images, we have an idea of at least three new Exotic toys for players this fall.

Assassin’s Cowl Hunter helmet - Vanishing Execution: Defeating a Guardian with a melee attack or a combatant with a Finisher grants invisibility and restores a portion of health and shieldsPhoenix Cradle Titan legs - Beacons of Empowerment: Your Sun Warrior benefit lasts twice as long once you create a Sunspot. Allies who pass through your Sunspot also gain the benefit of Sun Warrior

In the trailer, players can also see the returning Exotic auto rifle Monte Carlo in a player’s inventory. What’s strange about Monte Carlo is its Vex Icon, but the rest of the items on screen have a Shadowkeep icon. Weapon icons always represent the expansion or season the item comes from. It looks like Monte Carlo may be part of the Season of the Undying, rather than the Shadowkeep expansion (both start Oct. 1).
