probably the smallest and dumbest little detail that i worked in beyond light but i’m still bizarrely proud of us is this lament perk which is a health cross symbol but made out of fucking chainsaws lol
exotic perks are some of my favorite assets to create in destiny. "pool perks" can appear on all sorts of different weapons so they need to be fairly neutral aesthetically and illustrate what the gameplay effect of the perk is.
on exotic-specific perks, what we like to do is dive more into what the power fantasy and narrative behind that particular piece of gear is, and worrying less about the perks being "infographics." we always want to reinforce the uniqueness of the items with these icons.
finally, exotic perks are also a great way for us to provide another avenue to showcase some of the awesome details and decals our concept artists create for exotics, like here on our old friend arbalest
thank you for coming to my ted talk
