If you're hungry for more Destiny 2: Lightfall info ahead of its release next month, you're in luck. Bungie has released a new trailer showing off some of the weird and wonderful weapons and gear you'll be bringing to the city of Neomuna when Lightfall arrives on February 28th.

Some of the weapons we got a look at include the Final Warning, which fires charged tracking rounds, as well as a rifle called Deterministic Chaos, which weakens enemies with every fourth shot. League of Legends' Jhin would be proud. There's also Cyrtarachne's Facade, which looks to be a helmet granting flinch resistance when you use the new grapple that's coming with Lightfall.

The new Quicksilver Storm weapon will let your grenades create Tangles when you down enemies, and a melee weapon called Winterbite lets you fire frost orbs that freeze enemies before moving in close to deliver the final blow. All in all, the arsenal you can unlock in Lightfall is looking pretty impressive.

Destiny 2: Lightfall is the latest expansion to grace Bungie's expansive MMO looter-shooter. It'll take place in the Neptunian city of Neomuna and will revolve around the Shadow Legion, who you'll have to fight in order to avert disaster (for what else do Guardians do?).

New features coming as part of the expansion include a new subclass called the Strand, which will add a grappling hook for traversal. Every class can take the Strand as a subclass, but as Bungie says, "it's up to you to create the perfect build". Pre-ordering Lightfall will net you access to a new Exotic Ghost and Legendary emblem, as well as the Quicksilver Storm weapon mentioned above.

Destiny 2: Lightfall arrives on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on February 28th, so make sure to mark your calendar if you're excited to get to grips with some of the outlandish new weaponry and gear on offer.
