Out of its four seasonal events, Solstice usually has some of the most attractive and functional gear to unlock in Destiny 2. This year’s new Candescent armor sets certainly are easy on the eyes, but they’re also packed with stats that can be fine-tuned if you’re prepared to put in the effort.
On the firepower side, Solstice has a new hand cannon that is broken in a very specific way. Called Something New, the hand cannon’s Dreamwork trait can potentially overfill the chamber with rounds when used properly and it’s quickly becoming a favorite amongst Guardians who know the value of teamwork.
When you first start Solstice, you’ll be handed a Candescent set of armor and an Event Card that can be upgraded to unlock other rare gear. You can also pay to unlock a premium version of the Event Card, and whether it’s worth its price for a cute Ghost shell and hot-dog eating emoji, is up to you. If you’re looking to see if Solstice is worth jumping into this year, we’ve rounded up a look at all the gear on offer right now.
