With the launch of the new dungeon Warlord’s Ruin, guardians’ arsenals have been upgraded with a brand new weapon frame, and a return to form of sorts for the sidearms of old. We haven’t seen the return of special-ammo sidearms since Forerunner released with the 30th Anniversary Pack, almost 2 years ago.
Special Ammo Sidearms From Warlord’s Ruin
We’ve gotten two brand new special ammo sidearms with this update. The first of which being the dungeon exotic – Buried Bloodline. A dual-firing crossbow that grants devour to any class. The second, and arguably more important being the Indebted Kindness. A gyrojet, rocket-assisted sidearm that deals really solid damage.
Because currently the dungeon gear is hidden from the Bungie API, we can’t show you every new roll and perk for the weapon. But, we have seen a new perk, named Beacon Rounds, that grants tracking capabilities for the rocket-assisted shot upon final blows, with damage increasing the timer.
The Mountaintop Returns?
The first thing that Redeem member and streamer Sweatcicle commented on the weapon was its similarity to The Mountaintop, a sunset special grenade launcher that shot a grenade with no curve. I personally think this is the closest we’ve gotten to replicating that level of power. Early damage tests show that this thing is an absolute weapon of mass destruction, having a great damage-to-ammo ratio with a huge set of reserves.
There’s very little doubt in my mind about Indebted Kindness being a new champion killer, a new DPS swap weapon and an overall hilariously fun weapon to use in all content.
