Destiny: Exclusive Achievements

So my private group OTK and I were having a discussion about the future with Bungie's next title, Destiny. In Halo 3, we had the Katana to unlock. In ODST there was really nothing grand save achievements, and in Reach we had the Haunted Helmet. These were both in-game collectable items a player could earn. We really know nothing about Destiny. But that doesn't mean we can't voice our opinions on that topic. We know it's some sort of shooter and, since it'll be on the Xbox and likely playstation, it'll have achievements/trophies. What would you guys think appropriate, if anything, for in-game unlockables? Say it's an MMO-esque game. Would you guys approve if Bungie went World of Warcraft or Halo 3 style- if you earn a special achievement you can get some sort of title or non-gameplay-affecting-trinket? Or do you guys think the future should hold to giving player meaningful things outside of the Team Fortress 2 'Hat' type items? Give players boosts for doing certain tasks, like in Borderlands where players get badass points that give them permanent powerups, albeit in small increments? What sort of items or unlockables, if any, would make you want to get achievements and the likes that much more? Because let's be honest, we all love the bleep bloop, but a little something extra never hurts!

  • As far as unlockables go, I'd like something that's usable in game, like an overpowered gun after completing the campaign on the hardest difficulty.

    • It would be cool to see a katana for a post-endgame item just for the nostalgia.

    • Since I hold the idea that it won't be like any Halo or Call of Duty game, in that, it's primary focus won't be PvP, but co-op, I'd say aesthetic and player 'boosts' would be good unlockables.

    • I would love some kind of throw back armour set, maybe some Marathon looking armour for a certain hard to obtain achievement.

    • Some armour like the Katana and Security would be awesome. Except more. I kinda like the idea of of the Vidmasters for super 1337 armour.

    • A comeback of the Mjolnir V Armor in for the player to wear, i think it would be awesome, you know like the Security helmet in halo 3.

      • I would love if bungie would give each console exclusive achievements/change the names of the achievements depending on the console you're playing the game on.

          • Going by the art we've seen so far? Perhaps different armour parts, maybe the option to wear "battle-scarred" items, etc. Flag brearing on a player's back, akin to in 40K. Only smaller, if it's PvP.

            • I always liked WoW's tabards, titles, and trinkets. Having social items to display achievements is an important part of social-heavy games like Destiny is hinted to be.

            • I'd hate to say it but there should be a set of achievements kinda like the vidmaster to get some super l33t armor
