One of the most interesting additions coming to Destiny 2 with the Forsaken expansion is the new enemy faction: The Scorn.

In the Destiny 2 lore, The Scorn are Fallen who have been reanimated. The Scorn don’t just look different from traditional Fallen, they also have completely new move sets.

In a new video from Game Informer, Bungie explains that the intent was to make all the different Scorn types more aggressive than anything else in the game.

One of the more interesting new enemy types is the Chieftain, who each spawn a different totem that comes with a different effect. The Solar totem spits out fire all around it, blocking your path, whereas the Void totem grants shields to nearby enemies.

Similar to the Chieftain, the Barons – the game’s main villains whom you’ll be hunting down in the Forsaken campaign – each bring a particular gimmick to the fight.

Watch game director Steve Cotton, and design director Del Chafe walk you through all of them below:

In case you missed it, the Game Informer cover story also provided some great new details, such as this look at all the nine new supers.
