The Destiny franchise has a rich history of very talented fans creating art, props, videos and more based on the game. Many of them have been featured here on Game Rant. Here’s another one worth highlighting: one fan has created some Destiny 2 concept art for Fallen and Cabal themed armor sets, which are totally awesome.
The artist, Plain Ben, said this art came from an exercise “photobashing some Destiny Armor concepts out of existing Bungie assets.” The result is something that takes a page out of Monster Hunter‘s book, armor that looks as though it has been forged directly from the enemies players fight in game.
In the past, Destiny has featured armor sets that are heavily themed after a certain race or activity in the game—those that come to mind first are the raid armor ornaments added in the Destiny‘s Year Three Age of Triumph. This art concept takes that to the next level, piecing together exact armor that players fight against in the game.
Since being shared on Twitter and the Destiny subreddit, this art has blown up with many fans saying this is exactly the kind of loot they would like to see available in Destiny 2. Take internet responses for what they are, but this art has resonated with many fans who are making comments about how they would spend hours grinding for this kind of armor if something similar was in the game.
It seems to hit a nerve with fans who feel Destiny 2 armor matters very little. In comparison to Destiny 1, armor in the sequel has less of an impact on the stats of a player’s character and many of the armor sets—even for special event sets like Faction Rally—are practically reskins of another armor set already in the game.
It will be interesting to see if the hype over this fan creation inspires any armor in the future of Destiny 2, as Bungie pivots to continue to make the game more engaging for its player base.
Destiny 2 is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
