Destiny 2‘s 30th Anniversary adds a ton of new content to Bungie’s popular looter-shooter, including some weapons based on the company’s past games. A number of Halo-themed weapons have made their way into Destiny 2 through the 30th Anniversary celebration, including a pair of swords that each look like one half of an energy sword from Halo. Destiny 2 The Other Half and Half-Truth swords have proven to be popular in the community for their usefulness and looks, but a glitch arguably makes The Other Half look even cooler.
Reddit user leofungo recently encountered a visual glitch in Destiny 2 while viewing The Other Half sword that gave it a much different look. Typically, The Other Half Sword in Destiny 2 has a purple look to reflect its Void damage output. However, the glitch shared by leofungo shows The Other Half colored black instead, almost making it look like the Darksaber weapon from the Star Wars franchise.
For the uninitiated, the Darksaber is lightsaber-like weapon with a black blade. It first showed up in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but more recently was seen in the popular Disney+ show The Mandalorian. It definitely looks similar to this glitched version of The Other Half, but unfortunately for Star Wars fans, this look for the weapon isn’t permanent and is simply a temporary visual glitch.
Destiny 2 players interested in getting The Other Half will need to play the Dares of Eternity mode that was added to the game as part of the 30th Anniversary. The Other Half is a random drop that Destiny 2 players can get for completing Dares of Eternity sessions, plus it can also be obtained from Xur’s Treasure Hoard, where players can open chests using Treasure Keys. Treasure Keys can be earned through Dares of Eternity as well as purchased.
The Destiny 2 Other Half sword has proven to be difficult for some fans to get their hands on, especially when compared to its Half-Truths counterpart. It seems like Destiny 2 players aren’t having that much trouble getting their hands on Half-Truth, whereas The Other Half is a much rarer drop. All players can do is keep going through the Dares of Eternity mode and unlocking chests until they get lucky enough to get the sword.
In the meantime, Destiny 2 fans seem impressed with this alternate look for The Other Half, and with the popularity of The Mandalorian, maybe Bungie could one day add a proper Darksaber-style weapon to the game.
Destiny 2 is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
