Red Death is a weapon in Destiny.

Summary[]

Red Death is an Exotic Pulse Rifle. The rifle is said to have been taken from a fallen guardian and redesigned by another. It is earned at the end of an unknown mission and is rare to find.

This gun will be wielded by everyone but it will not be given it will be found. It has been taken all over the system wielded by individuals who have customized it to fit their needs at that certain time. It has a savage look and represents what the world has become outside the walls of the Last City. This weapon was taken form a guardian who was defeated, and was repainted in addition to having its optics changed. It is truly a work of art, but with such a savage background, the name Red Death is fitting.

During the first Destiny Bungie Podcast they stated that this gun originated from two words; Red, and Death, and that it built up from that.

Speculation[]

  • From the first Bungie podcast it could be concluded that the red death is a bad guy gun.

Trivia[]

  • Comparing the general body shape for the Red Death and Monitor S11 will reveal that the Red Death is a highly modified Monitor.
