New weapon types

So, after going through the alpha videos, all the weapon types available seem like your bog standard shooter stuff: DMR's, assault and semi auto rifles, shotguns, snipers, LMG's and rockets. However, the fusion rifles did really stand out as a relatively new, futuristic weapon type that seemed really cool, and they seem to suggest that there are other crazier weapon types available in game. I hope that the full release contains: -Mini guns -Grenade launchers -Anti tank rifles/Railguns -Flame/chemical/gas throwers -Beam weapons -Sonic/shockwave weapons (i.e thunder cannon from zombies) -Arc rifles (I heard these mentioned a while ago, so they could be confirmed, and I hope they'll be like the lightning guns from district 9) So, you guys have any other opinions or suggestions for weapon types?

  • Railguns have been confirmed, in one of Bungie's mailsacks. It wasn't that long ago, but I forgot which one.

      I have seen the thigh fire HMG/chaingun with the titan for awhile. Even the Cabal have one in the experience trailer. I want. Who needs ads.

      • Alien weaponry. I know it's pretty much a given seeing this is a Bungie game but I still haven't heard anything about it.

                • I'm sure that a lot of weapons will fall into those standard categories, but some of the more exotic weapons will probably feel like their own category.

                  • I think an arc riffle could just be a scout riffle or something with arc damage. And I think Deej said something about railguns one time. That said, Destiny was sadly deviod of SMGs.

                    • Heavy machines guns are already in the game lol. Beam weapons are kinda already here. Grenade launchers? not really sure why you'd need that to be honest and same with ANTI TANK rifles? well theres no tanks to take out so im not sure why you'd want that.

                            • Was thinking the same thing. Maybe there's more, or mid to end game the weapon skills start to make weapons more unique. I'd like to see more though. Nothing super crazy, just like you said more fusion rifle kinda stuff. We'll see though, I'm excited to find out either way. And that's a nice list you have composed. Any of those would be a nice addition.
