Destiny 2 Gun Has Call Back To Original iPhone Keynote

Illustration for article titled iDestiny 2 /iGun Has Call Back To Original iPhone Keynote

One of Destiny 2's exotic weapons has a nice reference to Steve Jobs’ keynote for the original iPhone.


**Spoilers for Destiny 2 lore, if you’re mindful of them.**

The Hard Light auto-rifle looks pretty sweet, and packs a punch too. But one mindful redditor noticed that the weapon’s lore was eerily similar to a famous Apple keynote speech. (h/t /u/GenericUsername004)


Hard Light’s lore, according to one Destiny 2 wiki, is as follows:

Today, we’re introducing three revolutionary products.

The first is a quick-config interface for outgoing damage. The second is a ricochet projectile that bounces off any surface. And the third an infinite range zero drop-off projection weapon platform.

So! Three new products in the Omolon portfolio. But, unlike other product launches, we won’t be staggering the releases.

We will be releasing them all at once. In a single device. In extremely limited quantities.

We call it Hard Light.

But there is one more thing.

Compare that to Steve Job’s keynote, and it matches up pretty well. Interesting, given Omolon (creators of the Hard Light) are pioneers who also used proprietary tech.

So if the trend keeps true, it’ll become one of the most overrated, overhyped, and overpriced items in its category, at least for the next nine years?
