Destiny 2 has accumulated the passionate player base that came from the first title in the franchise, as well as from fans of Bungie’s previous work. Fans have consistently showed their love for Destiny 2 and the world that it brings to life, and an example of that has come in the form of the Rat King exotic gun, which a player recently created in precise detail.
The Rat King comes from an exotic quest within Destiny 2 and makes use of the perk “Rat Pack,” which increases the gun’s power when other Rat King users are nearby. The weapon, however, is one of Destiny 2‘s most unique exotic guns, and so it comes as no surprise that it has been produced in the real world.
Reddit user clonewolfstudio has made physical replicas of the Rat King, one of Destiny‘s most beautiful weapons. The design features the iconic burrowing rats that are prominent on the original weapon, as well as the red grip. The gun, which is granted to players via the Rat King’s Crew exotic quest, represents one of Destiny 2‘s most elegant and extravagant weapons. It’s aesthetic makes the physical creation even more impressive. And, even though Destiny 2‘s recent additions have been successful, the Rat King is an exotic that has been in the game for years and maintained its status.
Indeed, while Bungie has offered items to fans via collector’s boxes or special editions of Destiny 2, there have not been many replicas as detailed and well-considered as the Rat King. The recreation of the weapon shows a true love for the Destiny franchise and for the design and intrigue that Bungie has brought to its newest title. To its credit, though, Bungie has always fostered a sense of community and support from its fanbase and has encouraged embracing the world of Destiny. Destiny 2‘s events may come and go, but its passionate players will remain.
The construction of the Rat King exotic is a serious achievement and comes at the perfect time. As Bungie prepares for the launch of its newest expansion The Witch Queen, the Destiny community cannot contain its excitement for the next chapter. As the next era of content approaches, it is amazing to see that the fans of Destiny 2 are showing their passion for one of the most ambitious games that Bungie has ever made.
Destiny 2 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
