Old friends returning in Destiny

So with all of the new content coming to Destiny with the Rise of Iron major expansion for this year, I was already super excited. But now they have announced that an old friend will be returning in a new and shiny yellow! That's right ladies and gentlemen, the Khvostov is making the return to our inventory even though it never left mine. It's the only gun I use in Crucible and I even try to pass story missions solo with it.

With it's new exotic remake that has me more excited then a dog with biscuits, it has all new customization options as it's upgrades. The following is a full list of options.

  • Classic Scope – The original Khvostov scope. Optimized for range and stability
  • Modernized Scope – Grants additional zoom and target acquisition
Firing Mode
  • Automatic – Sets firing behavior to fully automatic 
  • Burst Fire – Sets firing behavior to burst
  • Semi Auto – Sets firing behavior to semi-automatic with higher muzzle velocity
Frame Options
  • Hammer forged – Improved range and accuracy
  • Rifled Barrel – Increased range; Slower reload
  • Braced Frame – Increased stability; Reduced magazine size
  • Extended Mag – A larger magazine
  • Counterbalance – This weapon has increased stability
  • Rangefinder – Aiming this weapon increases its effective range
  • 450 RPM – Sets firing behavior to 450 RPM. Grants bonus range    
  • 900 RPM – Sets firing behavior to 900 RPM. Grants bonus stability
  • The final column on the right represents the gun’s ornaments. This feature is new to Rise of Iron. We don’t know much about the Khvostov’s ornaments at this point, but we do know that once players find the requisite items to activate the ornament that they will be able to change the way the gun looks. Players will also be freely able to switch between these ornaments after they’ve been unlocked.

To acquire this magnificent beast, players must acquire parts of this weapon through chests drops and even breaking down the original. Once the player has the necessary parts they can turn it into one of the new Rise of Iron quest givers to unlock a quest chain in order to acquire the Exotic Khvostov. I just love saying Khvostov!
I am so excited to wield this beautiful weapon again!.


Before I started my youtube I had quite a few issues and now it seems I have more of a purpose, as an entertainer. If you are reading this then I must've entertained you at some point with my content, and I am glad that I have :). "Stay focused, stay deadly"
