Adds New Weapon Type – Sidearm

Destiny is getting a new weapon type, sidearms, developer Bungie announced during today’s Prison of the Elders livestream. Siderarms will act as secondary weapons that add elemental damage and a very high rate of fire.

As you can see in the image above, the Vestian Dynasty sidearm, for example, also has high stability and reload stats.

Bungie today released tons of new details about Destiny’s new Prison of Elders co-op arena that’s included with the upcoming House of Wolves expansion. For more, check out GameSpot’s guide to everything you need to know about House of Wolves.
