Bungie’s 30th anniversary event is going live today in Destiny 2, featuring a new dungeon, a free-to-play activity, the return of Gjallarhorn, and much more.

Both owners of the 30th Anniversary Pack and free-to-play players will also be able to get their hands on several Halo-themed items “inspired by the past” of the developers at Bungie, including the game’s iconic pistol and battle rifle.

The Forerunner Exotic Sidearm is a Destiny-themed take on the iconic Magnum pistol from Halo: Combat Evolved. Both the weapon itself and its catalyst are available for all players via completing the Dares of Eternity matchmade six-player offensive activity.
