In celebration of Bungie‘s 30th anniversary — which just happens to coincide with the release of Halo Infinite — the long-awaited Destiny 2 and Halo crossover event is finally here.

While Bungie doesn’t overtly mention Halo, it’s pretty clear from the trailer that the weapons have been inspired by their previous work on the franchise. Included in the special update will be the Forerunner sidearm which mirrors the ultra-iconic Magnum pistol from Halo: Combat Evolved, the Half-Truths sword which is basically half of an Energy Sword, the BXR-55 Battler which, with its three-round burst mode, is unmistakeably the Battle Rifle in Halo 2, and the Retraced Path, a trace rifle mirroring Halo: Reach‘s Focus Rifle.

Of course, aside from its Halo tributes, you can also expect a new Grasp of Avarice dungeon, as well as a fresh armor set and even more weapons. New quests, cosmetic items, ornaments and streetwear-inspired outfits are also on their way.

For those interested, check out the trailer above and learn more about Destiny 2‘s Bungie 30th anniversary event over on the game’s website.

In other related news, 343 Industries will be debuting the first Halo live-action series trailer at The Game Awards 2021.
