Our focus this week comes from the DestinyTheGame subreddit. Amidst all the chatter about the game, there is an account that replies to posts and comments only using flavor text from Destiny. Every piece of armor, weapon, mission, ship, and sparrow contain a little extra insight into the Destiny universe. Destiny Flavor Text combs through them to create some clever responses. No one knows who they are or if they are even human. We spoke with the source of this humor to see if we could crack the case.
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
You sound like a badass. What is your role in the Destiny Community?
Why are you calling me out? My allegiance is to Dead Orbit. Where can we find you on the internet?
DFT: We linger in the wild, stalking and exploring without a sound.
OK… So what is your favorite subclass?
DFT: "Sometimes the solution is as simple as a Golden Gun and a handful of bullets." —Cayde-6
And your favorite Weapon?
I see what you did there. So out of all of the Destiny flavor text, which one is your favorite?
A lot of Redditors seem to think you’re a bot—or maybe even a Warmind! Are you ready to set the record straight?
Come on DFT, give it to us straight. Are you a living, breathing human being or what?
Whoa… that’s a deep Tower thought. So what will you do with yourself once you inevitably run out of flavor texts to post?
DFT: "Someday I'm gonna get out of this place. Do another tour of the system, probably shoot some people. And now I have a pretty great story to tell as I go." —Cayde-6
Oh, you! Are you excited about Destiny 2?
DFT: Oh yeah!
Is it true you are going to make it the Destiny 2 Gameplay Premiere on May 18th?
Your presence at the big show will settle the debate about your existence forever. Anything else you would like to add before we let you go?
That doesn’t sound pleasant.
We’d like to thank Destiny Flavor Text for taking the time to respond to our inquiries in thought-provoking ways. Keep an eye out for them on Reddit; you never know what they’re going to say.
