Destiny Daily 1/1/15: Happy New Year, Daily Bounties, More

Welcome to 2015 Guardians. Happy New Year!

Destiny Daily

Welcome to 2015 Guardians; I hope you all have a great year. I ended 2014 with a bang; I had a great day playing Destiny. I completed the bounties for the Invective and Bad Juju, both of which I already had but these are the upgraded versions. So I’ll just dismantle the other two for the shard. My big thing was FINALLY completing the PVP part of the Thorn bounty and then Xyor, which wasn’t a problem. I had rage dismantled the Thorn bounty three times. I’ve had it for weeks, but last night I played and knocked it out in a couple of hours. I’ve been wanting this gun for quite some time, and it is oh so sweet. Finally, a gun I can say I truly earned. Now the only exotic hand cannon I need is Hawkmoon; I love the handcannons. My good times will continue today when I hit level 32, which after spending months as a “Forever 29,” is going to be quite sweet for me. Now if Xur sells the Gjallarhorn tomorrow, it would cap off an excellent week for me.

Here are the bounties for 1/1:

Hard Fall Rapidly kill 4 Hive with a heavy weapon. Death will reset your progress. 75 / 3750
Chase The Dark Kill Hive with Axion Bolt. 75 / 3750

Rank 4 today and I’ll never have to do another Eris bounty (but I will because it’s good XP for my weapons).

The Sword of Crota

Ocean of Storms, Moon


  • Infiltrate the Hive Fortress and destroy the legendary Sword of Crota, a weapon once used to slay thousands of Guardains.


  • HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
  • JUGGLER – No ammo drops for your equipped weapon.


Cryptarch Engram

+5 Vanguard Marks

XP + 4800 / 6000 / 7500

+1 Ascendant Material (lvl 26) 2 Ascendant Materials (lvl 30)

Destination Materials + 10 / 12 / 16

This is a really easy mission and you can ignore that juggler modifier since you’re not going to be using a gun very much. This is where you get to pick up the big sword, go into third person, and destroy some Hive. It’s a fun mission, and one of my favorites in the game. Won’t take long and won’t be difficult.

Tomorrow Xur comes, and the only gun that he could be selling that I need is the Gjallarhorn. Do I expect it? Of course not. Nevertheless, I’ll have my fingers crossed for it for sure. Even if he doesn’t, I’m still going to be happy purely because I finally got my Thorn and I thought for months that it was going to be impossible for me to do. I didn’t hide and snipe with a void sniper, and I didn’t hang back and hide behind corners with a shotgun. I used Atheon’s Epilogue, Final Rest II fusion rifle, and MG18A Harm’s Way machine gun and played fairly aggressively. Never had a bad game; in fact most of them were really well (KD anywhere from 1.5 to 3.3 and usually first on the team). I only got mad about constant super deaths, respawn not wanting to work some times, and teammates stealing kills. Whatever, I got it Thorn. I’m happy.

Happy New Year, that’s all for today Guardians.
