Into the Light Stream 2

Preview of the loot from Onslaught, lots of fan favorites coming back!


Hall of Champions

  • New social place, in the back areas of the tower
  • Landing area is decorated with all of the out of season event decorations used in the tower
  • Main area is a large, grand hall, full of chests, holographic statues of Shaxx, large statues of guardians, and Shaxx at the very end standing in front of a containment device holding a flowing black substance.
    • By obtaining both Superblack keys from the vendors (mentioned below), you can interact with the black substance to obtain the Superblack shader from D1
  • Social space has several sets of chests, grouped according to class.
    • Chests work much like 30th anniversary, requiring a certain vendor rep (Hype) and costing vendor currency (Trophies of Bravery), dropping armor.
    • One chest is dedicated to dropping weapons, costs just Trophies of Bravery
  • They're bringing back "Gift of the Thunder Gods", drops hard cap gear, free for all players
  • Players can interact with the holographic statues of Shaxx to enable weapon attunement for the weapon that the statue is holding. Attunement makes it more likely for that specific weapon to drop.
    • Certain Shaxx statues are locked, which will be unlocked by completing the weapon quests mentioned below.


  • Shaxx gives vendor rep rewards, which include Trophies of Bravery, armor chest unlocks, an Enhancement Shard, an Enhancement Prism, an Exotic engram, and the "Superblack Key Alpha" as the last reward. He also offers bounties.
    • Superblack Key Alpha: "This one of two keys needed to unlock Superblack Containment at the rear of the Hall of Champions. The other key, Superblack Key Omega, is held by Arcite 99-40. Complete weekly weapon quests to unlock."
  • Arcite (a redjack) gives weapon quests (seemingly will be weekly), bounties,
    • Weapon quests have objectives like "Defeat combatants with precision damage using Sniper Rifles anywhere in the system. Bonus progress granted in Onslaught. OR Defeat combatants in raids and dungeons using Sniper Rifles."
    • Weapon quests drop curated "limited edition" versions of their corresponding weapons (extremely good roll, not necessarily the god roll), are necessary to get the gun to start dropping in general, will unlock Attunement for that weapon, as well give a boost of rep.

BRAVE Arsenal

  • The armor is based off of the D2Y1 parade armor
  • There is a low chance that any BRAVE Arsenal weapon will drop as a "limited edition" variant, with a unique ornament, and 2 perks in the 3rd and 4th column.
    • These "limited edition" variants will be unobtainable once The Final Shape launches.
    • The limited edition ornaments are unshadable, but can be taken off to be able to shade the base ornament.
  • The BRAVE Arsenal weapons will be enhanceable once The Final Shape launches.
  • Legendary ornaments for the original guns will be applicable to the Onslaught versions.


  • Origin Trait - Indomitability: Final blows grant grenade energy when playing a light subclass, melee energy when playing a dark subclass
  • Magnificent Howl: The number of precision final blows before reloading affects the total rounds granted with increased range and damage. Precision final blows with Magnificent Howl active extend the effect for additional rounds.
    • 1 precision kill seems to translate into 1 buffed bullet after reload. Damage buff seems to be 50% buff to precision hits.
  • Last Stand (name will be different on release): Weapon final blows grant bonus damage. Melee and grenade final blows grant a larger damage bonus that can stack
    • Damage buff on weapon kill is 10% for 6 seconds, buff from ability kill is unknown
  • Master of Arms: Kills with any weapon improve this weapon's damage for a short time
    • 15% damage buff for 6 seconds
