Destiny 2's most broken gun has now been given a bug on purpose


If youve ever played Destiny, youll know of Telesto. This exotic weapon is a fan-favourite for its exploding purple projectiles – and also notorious for often being bugged.

Its broken nature is so notorious, in fact, that Destiny developer Bungie has now added an Easter egg to the game where Telesto fails to properly fire – and instead sends its projectiles floating lazily into the sky while the weapon itself fizzes and sparks. (A simple reload clears the Easter egg, and the gun can then be used as normal.)

But while this appeared at first to be just a fun nod to Telestos oft-bugged state, fans are now suggesting the Easter egg may hint at a further secret, as Destiny 2 heads towards the end of its current season.

Forbes writer and Destiny fan Paul Tassi posted footage of the “bug” apparently showing the guns projectiles forming into the shape of star constellations – though its unclear at this point what all this is leading to.

“What happens from here, Im not sure,” he wrote. “Yes, Telesto is shooting out constellations. No, I do not really know what to do with that fact. Ive gotten indication that this may continue to unfold over the coming days, so we might need to wait and see what further [game update] resets bring.”

TELESTO is sparking, smoking and shooting out what I believe could be coded patterns into the sky

you have to hold reload to literally smack it to get it firing normally again

no, this is not your average Telesto bug. Get to work… pic.twitter.com/vOy9NNtdJW
