Just like Taken King last year, GI will be showing off little tidbits of info every few days. The teaser they put out has some brief new gameplay snippets.

Looks like the "Kill Confirmed" mode from CoD to me. Dead players drop engrams. Pick up a friendly team engram to remove it from the board, or an enemy engram to score points. You only get points for kills if your enemy engram is collected!

I like that game mode in CoD because it forces CQC in a game where ranged combat is king. I'm not sure I like it in Destiny where shotguns are arguably the best weapon type there is, and CQC is super common.

Halo Reach had a very similar mode called "Headhunter"

If I still had a hunter, the only legendary helmet I would ever wear would be the Iron Camelot Casque:

I love it because it is as close to an ODST helmet for my Hunter as possible. My XBO Hunter is not so stylish.

Now. If only I could get a proper all black shader.

"Infinite Link" is pretty close, but it'll have a splash of red in places (more so on hunters than Titans and Warlocks). There's also "The Old Guard" and "Revenant", but they include suble cammo patterns with shades of grey.

It's a nice shader - one of my favorites. Unfortunately it only comes from the Refer A Friend program - I think it drops when you complete a nightfall together.

Ugggg, Why can't I get a solid Red/Black shader to save my life!? The closest I've ever gotten is Orange/Black. One of these days it is going to happen.

There's a decent red/black/white shader from the TTK reef quests.
Vallsgarde from the Cryptarch is black/gold and by far and away the best looking shader for a hunter.
