Spoiler Alert, a legendary sidearm from Destiny 2, was reintroduced in August for Season of the Lost. Its description reads: “Someone’s going to die.” This is not all that remarkable, Destiny 2 follows the same pattern. However, this weapon could indicate very bad news for one of the main characters.
Spoiler Alert with the same description was added to the original Destiny 2 Warmind DLC, which went live in May 2018. A few months later in September, the Destiny 2: Forsaken expansion was released. Cayde-6, the beloved Hunter Vanguard, did the opposite. His death seems to be a permanent event, contrary to my expectations.
This is a significant, perhaps even ominous, but it could also simply be a coincidence. So, it’s not right? No. Nikko Stevens, senior narrative designer for Destiny 2: The Witch Queen spoke out against this possibility in a conversation with GamesRadar.
Stevens stated, “It’s no coincidence.” “That’s all that I’ll say.”
Julia Nardin, senior narrative lead, was less than helpful and declined to answer the question.
It is possible that Zavala and Ikora, two-thirds of the original Destiny 2 Vanguard could be in danger. Inside sources, i.e. resident Destiny machine Tim Clark, have confirmed that Osiris is the prime candidate. Osiris is the legendary Warlock who played a key role in the recent seasonal narrative. I was told that this is a great example of live service gaming.
Osiris, the Witch Queen’s prisoner, became Osiris recently, following the death of his ghost, Sagira. This may be due to the difficulty in locating Morena Baccarin, the voice actor.
Savathun used Osiris’s form to enter the City, spying on guardians and inveigling into their plans. Mara Sov, the returning Awoken Queen, recently exposed this subterfuge. So now it is unclear if Osiris is actually being held prisoner or if he’s already deceased. It will be a shock to Osiris’ partner, Saint-14, if he does indeed go bye-bye.
The show is a soap opera, but it’s a lot of fun for players. Each week, new narrative nuggets are given out as part of a seasonal questline. Myelin Games, a Destiny 2 YouTuber and sometimes PC Gamer correspondent breaks down the Osiris stuff. It’s quite convincing that he’s a loser, I’m afraid.
Crow/Uldren and Mara Sov are also possible candidates. It could be an unfortunate misdirect. It’s possible that I was wrong about Cayde-6’s prediction in Forsaken. I will, however, wait and see what happens. Destiny 2:The Witch Queen will go live on February 22nd 2022. However, don’t discount the possibility of a big twist landing in the current season.
