With a snap of their fingers, Bungie has caused a stir among the warlocks in Destiny 2
It’s release day for Destiny 2: Season of the Hauntedand we’ve already seen plenty of content revealed, including a range of exciting new weapons, a researchable Leviathan, and a new dungeon coming Friday, May 27th. However, it was the Solar 3.0 overhaul that caught the attention of the community, particularly Warlock players who have excitedly discovered their newfound finger-snapping melee ability.
In the video embedded below, you can see each class perform numerous new or updated Solar abilities as they burn through waves of enemies. We only see the finger snapping and incinerating a pack of curled-up enemies for just a moment, but that was all it took to spark an explosion of posts, discussions, and of course, jokes on the Destiny 2 subreddit.
The flashy finger cannons in this new melee ability were the first to catch the community’s attention as a particularly stylish and somewhat magical way to set enemies on fire. Fans of certain Japanese media immediately pointed to a direct comparison to a specific alchemist, while others likened the maneuver to the Bioshock franchise as well as our favorite big purple boy, Thanos.
Others used their talents for Photoshop or their pens and brushes to create humorous depictions of warlocks melting enemies who tragically managed to get in their way. There’s something about snapping your fingers and setting the world on fire that seems to have struck a chord with Warlock players! This is the mental toll of years of grinding up god rolls, filling their vault with junk and objectively worse than Titan regardless of recent Guardian Games results.
But stepping back a bit, there must be a reason why there is so much excitement in the air surrounding these 3.0 overhauls. Void got a lot of love when it first released earlier this year, but it made all of the remaining vanilla damage types feel a bit naff. Overall the finger snapping, plus all the awesome and badass new abilities that mark a continuous evolution from old Destiny 2 and the current era of the title, with fire becoming the newest member of the fold. Cheers to Arc 3.0, because right now playing an Arc character feels extra rough compared to the shinier, more exciting alternatives.
