Kiss Your Destiny 2 Season Of Dawn Favourites Goodbye Before The End Of The Season

Don’t talk….just close your eyes.

As Forbes so poetically put recently, every season in Destiny 2 now comes with a bitter aftertaste. For all the new content we get, we lose a good chunk from the game’s past. With the next season after Season of the Hunt, we’ll be losing a total of 21 Season of Dawn weapons. That’s no small number, and some of these weapons took a lot of grinding in specific activities to earn. All good things must come to an end though, and at least Destiny 2 is still going to be live.

I wanted to write this article so that all you Guardians who put the effort in with the Sundial and everything else that was part of Season of Dawn know to take one last look at these weapons before they’re gone. Give them a knowing look that says they were the best, and they’ll stare right back at you with that same look. It might be painful, but don’t cry, just take them out into an activity one last time for the sake of those good times you had together.

The weapons being sunsetted at the end of Season of the Hunt are as follows.

  • Uriel’s Gift
  • Last Hope
  • Old Fashioned
  • Elatha FR4
  • Hawthorne’s Field-Forged Shotgun
  • Mos Epoch
  • Buzzard
  • Python
  • Komodo
  • Trophy Hunter
  • Pyroclastic Flow
  • Infinite Paths 8
  • Jack Queen King 3
  • Traveler’s Judgement 5
  • Breachlight
  • Patron of Lost Causes
  • Steelfeather Repeater
  • Martyr’s Retribution
  • Perfect Paradox
  • Gallant Charge
  • Line in the Sand

Look, I know it’s hard to lose content. What’s worse is that you’ll still have the weapons in your inventory, but you won’t be able to infuse them any higher than they’re now very low cap. As I mentioned here, I don’t see the point of this. Every weapon should just be removed, and Guardians awarded the raw materials that come from dismantling them.

I’d like to know what you Guardians think of all this. It’s a hard situation for those who have been running with these weapons for a long time. You might love them, and rely on them to do well in the Crucible or Trials. On the other hand, you might just not care, which is totally fine! Either way, leave a comment to tell us your thoughts.

I'm an avid Destiny 2 fan and player. I fell in love with Destiny 1 during the early alpha and have been hooked by the universe ever since. I really enjoy playing with other Guardians, speculating about the lore, and writing about as much of the Destiny universe as I can.

    I have used the solar Uriel’s Gift to break shields, even the hardest boss shields, since Destiny 2 introduced the auto rifle. To say that I am sad is a complete understatement. Sins of the Past, the very best rocket launcher has also been sunsetted without much todo but I am at a loss trying to find anything new that comes close. For average players it is our guns and how we come to use them that gives us any type of edge over the people that play this game 24/7. Having a “real” job that takes up lots of “real” time I could always rely on my favorite guns to help me play catch-up for Triumphs and gaining light. Not any longer. Seriously, Skyrim is looking better and better to me every day I waste in Crucible or grinding in D2. And what the heck… Breachlight isn’t even a year old. Why is it on the sunsetting list? My Vestian Dynasty was my go to sidearm and that is also gone. The only alternative is the exotic Traveler’s Chosen of which a majority of players now use. Is that the end goal? Everyone using the same guns? Not smart as the world of gaming expands.
