A while back, Bungie announced that
they’d an “unknown benefactor” would be gifting every Destiny player a Legendary weapon because reasons. It’s probably got something to do with Christmas and New Year and wanting to get people who stopped playing a while ago to come back to continue grinding for phat loot.
So, if you head off to the Postmaster in the Tower, that cheerful robotic mailman will hand over a random Legendary weapon. That’s pretty neat, especially for those who gave up in their pursuit of Legendary items… like I did. Because I guess I’m lazy and Diablo III‘s ridiculous loot drop rates have spoiled me.
