Destiny will feature three weapon slots

New dev doc shows off weapons, worlds and creatures.

A new behind-the-scenes video for Destiny entitled Out Here in the Wild shows off a plethora of the strange, beautiful worlds, weapons, costumes and monsters in Bungie's highly anticipated FPS MMO that refuses to call itself an MMO.

One new addition since Bungie's work with Halo is that you can go from carrying two weapons at a time to three. You've got a primary weapon slot for all-purpose assault rifles and such, a secondary slot to use for more specific situations like for when you absolutely need a shotgun or sniper rifle, and then you've got a new "heavy slot" for "causing unrealistic amounts of damage over a very small window of time." The example shown in the video is the "exotic machinegun" Thunderlord, which increases damage dealt with each kill over a limited period of time.

We also get to see some slick super powers, like a Hulk smash with your "Fist of Havok" or tossing a nova bomb. Plus there's plenty of hovering, and if Spelunky has taught me anything, it's that everything is more fun with a jetpack.

Look forward to these airborne antics when Destiny launches next year on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3.
