Something New is a legendary Stasis hand cannon introduced during the Solstice of Heroes 2022 Destiny 2 event. This hand cannon comes equipped with a new origin trait unique to this event. As a 120 rounds per minute primary weapon, it is built for mid-range combat across PvE and PvP activities.

The new origin trait Dream Work lends itself to several God Roll PvE builds specifically. Something New is a reprised version of the sunset Destiny hand cannon, Better Devils, even down to its aggressive frame and recoil deviation upon firing.
