Bungie’s loot shooter destiny 2 will grow again on February 28th, the day when it is expected to be new incidence of light extension should start. But with the “Deluxe” edition launching at a whopping $100, one wonders if any of the bundled rewards can justify the price.

This new infusion of content follows the well-received one witch queen, whose $80 deluxe edition, which included the expansion and season pass, received highly positive reviews. Fans, myself included, expect good things. However, incidence of lighthas also experienced a price bump, with the base expansion selling for $50 and the Deluxe Edition expansion + Season Pass combo asking for $100. (There is also a physical collector’s edition for a staggering $250, which includes an LED-lit Pouka figure, among other things.) But I don’t need any of that; My eyes fell directly on the deluxe edition.

I’m tempted, see, because of a specific weapon you get when you pre-order the deluxe edition: Quicksilver Storm. An Exotic Auto Rifle, fans have quickly noticed that it is the most exciting destiny 2 exotic for a long time. The only pressing question is whether or not the fun justifies the means.

It’s a very cool weapon. For every two rocket shots hit, a grenade also spawns in the weapon’s alternate fire mode, which contains a total of three separate streams of ammo from a weapon that requires primary ammo. The damage? Very high. This auto rifle also suits very well Actium War Riga Titan-exclusive exotic that allows you to passively replenish your gun ammo from reserves, allowing your magazine to last longer before you need to reload.

Now the case against it. First off, the Quicksilver Storm has previously been disabled by Bungie due to an exploit that allowed it to bypass the team wipe mechanic in certain raids and dungeons. This is now fixed and the weapon is back. Additionally, Bungie hasn’t mentioned any plans to weaken or otherwise hamper the weapon’s performance in the future.

That said, players are all too familiar with the history of destiny 2 Balancing could be cautious about embracing an exotic that seems too good to be true before even the first post-release patch has landed, and with good reason. In the past, Bungie has been known for releasing new exotic weapons or armor that are either considered groundbreaking or that are either dominant in PvE or PvP; it runs this for two or more patches and then either balances the exotics that were once in the OP into mediocrity or, at worst, degrades them to the point of futility. (As a warlock, I can’t seem to forget it a particularly devastating nerf to Skull of Dire Ahamkara.) The question then becomes, is $99.99 really a reasonable price point for an expansion, an annual pass, and an exotic that’s already survived hotfix purgatory?

Quicksilver Storm has opened many doors for new builds, especially in conjunction with the new one Arc 3.0 subclass and specifically Actium War Rig Titans. While it was already temporarily disabled prior to its official release, Bungie has rarely left items in this state for long periods of time. And personally, I’ve always opted to buy Annual Passes because I find that having seasonal content released during each expansion will save me money in the long run. The deluxe edition is just right for me. However, for people who were already planning to buy the $50 incidence of light expansion, but were reluctant to spend the extra cash on the annual pass, it’s worth noting that Quicksilver Storm will be available to everyone incidence of light Players when the first season of the expansion begins in February.

Still, I think the fun factor and impressive abilities of this exotic – should you gain access to it now – make a compelling case when coupled with the additional rewards typically unlocked through an Annual Pass. The price of admission is steep, but if you can save the money and want to fully realize the dream of firing rockets, grenades, and primary ammunition from the same auto-rifle—and do it now, without waiting—then you might want to tackle it. Quicksilver Storm is a fun exotic that has the potential to expand your experience in both areas Season of Plunderand for those who come in incidence of light. Lightfall’s exotic rifle that’s worth the $100 premium?
