Cryosthesia 77K – A Powerful Sidearm

The first addition to the Exotics lineup is the Cryosthesia 77K, a new sidearm available right from the start of the season for Season Pass owners. Don’t worry if you don’t have the pass; you can still obtain this weapon by reaching Season level 35. The Cryosthesia 77K comes with some unique features:

  • LN2 Burst: The variable trigger allows you to shoot normally or charge a special Stasis shot by holding down the trigger. The charged shot is ready when Liquid Cooling is active.

New Exotics for Each Class

Each class has its own new Exotic armor piece:

Star-Eater Scales Legs (Hunter)

  • This Hunter-exclusive armor allows you to absorb Orbs of Power, charging your Super faster and increasing damage output.

Path of Burning Steps Legs (Titan)

  • Titans can enjoy the benefits of the Path of Burning Steps. This armor piece converts Solar kills to boost weapon damage and provides resistance to Stasis, making it highly effective in PvP scenarios.

Boots of the Assembler Legs (Warlock)

  • Warlocks can equip the Boots of the Assembler, which condense rifts into projectiles that boost nearby allies.

Hidden Exotic Weapon – Vex Mythoclast, Fusion Rifle

The Vex Mythoclast fusion rifle makes a return with the Season of the Splicer. This highly anticipated weapon has been confirmed with the Untold Tale weapon ornament. If you’re excited about its return, here’s what you need to know:

  • Timeless Mythoclast: The fusion rifle shoots a single bolt for each trigger hit.
  • Temporal Unlimiter: Continuous shots build up Overcharge, and holding down the trigger unleashes higher damage output.

Additionally, the Catalyst for the Vex Mythoclast adds the Calculated Balance perk, which improves stability by stacking Overcharge.
