Bungie and Nerf have built a real-life Gjallarhorn with foam Wolfpack rounds

Gjallarhorn, the gilded rocket launcher Bungie has brought back to Destiny as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations, is also showing up somewhere else: the playground. The studio has partnered with foam-based weapons maker Nerf to create a one-to-one replica of the legendary Exotic. 

Measuring four feet long and featuring a breach loading mechanism inspired by the game, the real-life Gjallarhorn fires three darts at once from a shell—a first for Nerf, apparently. It also boasts an illuminated scope, and reloads just the way it does in Destiny.

There are a couple of compromises: first, it’s not lethal; and second, the gun’s iconic gold exterior has turned orange, in accordance with Nerf’s branding. It’ll be available to pre-order first to those who acquire the Gjallarhorn in-game before August 1, 2022. If that’s you, expect to be notified via email once your early access period begins late next year. You’ll still have to pay $160 or €171 to get the gun, mind.
