Admittedly, I’ve never played Destiny. But I know from friends that play that Gjallarhorn was an iconic weapon in the first game. From the press release, it’s clearly coming back. Not only that, but players who unlock it by the listed date will have first dibs on the preorder – a nice touch for hardcore game fans, while not leaving out all of the general public. It’s only a nice touch, however, if they physically receive it first.
In any case, actual production Mega shells, firing Mega darts? That’s cool. Given that it’s four feet long, it won’t be practical. So for someone like me that collects things with the intention of using them, the Gjallarhorn loses some appeal. Even so, it’s an exciting thing to see Nerf make game-accurate props and new mechanisms.
