Destiny 2: all of the swords so far – katanas, broadswords, and more

Swords were introduced in Destiny as part of The Taken King, and they’re back in Destiny 2.

The Destiny 2 reveal last week was stuffed full of details for the new game, which you can catch up with here if you missed anything.

Amongst the tidbits were the new weapon categories and the return of swords. Previously nestled in the heavy slot, swords will now reside in the power category, and it looks like the three different classes may wield them differently.

Whether the stance is weapon specific or dependant on your class is something we’ll have to wait for more information to get the answer to.

Alex talks us through the five swords revealed in the gameplay Bungie has shared so far.

We’ve seen the Titan using two different swords, the Hunter using a katana, a fourth sword that comes with the premium edition, and Lord Shaxx’s Raze Lighter.
