There is a ton of new content in Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer, and players have discovered an absurd Stasis exploit to take advantage of in the new Cryosthesia 77K Sidearm.
Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion brought plenty of new features for players to enjoy, including the Stasis subclass, which lets players utilize the Darkness in battle. It’s even more powerful in Season of the Splicer.
Aside from the Vault of Glass raid and a new Battle Pass, the new season also introduced a brand-new Exotic Pistol called the Cryosthesia 77k, which has an exploit that lets you boost Stasis to an absurd extent.
Landing final blows with the Cryosthesia 77k lets you enable a Charge Shot with the Liquid Cooling perk that lets you “freeze someone five different ways,” according to Destiny Twitch streamer Joverrated.
The streamer attached a clip where they used the Charge Shot to stop their enemy’s momentum before using two more abilities followed by a Super to entrap them. The opponent was unable to break out of this for a half-minute.
This all took place during a competitive Trials match, and players who cannot break out of their frozen entrapment in a short amount of time might find themselves listed as “AFK” by the game, which is no doubt frustrating.
This clip went viral and had over 100,000 views at the time of writing. The streamer was quick to add that “Stasis is fine” as a joke, and it’s clear that the Cryosthesia 77k is an extremely powerful weapon.
Players who purchase the Season of the Splicer Season Pass will automatically unlock this Exotic weapon and will be able to use this weapon perk to dominate opponents in Stasis.
You can try out this new combo for yourself with the new freezing abilities in the game. If you’re looking to Transmog in Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer, you can also check our Armor Synthesis guide.

Competitive Destiny game could be in development with Bungie job listing
A Bungie job posting strongly points toward a new competitive game set within the Destiny universe being in development.
According to a job listing from July 2022, Bungie are developing an “exciting new title” in the Destiny universe with competitive elements.
Destiny 2 is currently in its 17th season and is showing no sign of slowing down, with rumors claiming a Destiny mobile game is in development and a job listing pointing towards a competitive title being in development.
Destiny devs Bungie are certainly no stranger to developing games that competitive players love, with the original Halo trilogy having a booming esports scene. Now, this job listing appears to confirm that Bungie are developing a brand-new competitive game set in the Destiny universe.
Bungie’s job posting reveals they are looking for a Senior Concept Artist to work on an “exciting new title” where the dev will need to work on “guns, characters, armors, vehicles, environments, and other seasonal art needs.”

The job posting is rather vague when describing the game, but there are a couple of bullet points that give us a strong indication.
The listing appears to confirm that it’s associated with Destiny, where the Concept Artist will need to “Continually push aesthetics of the Destiny universe.”
There’s no guarantee that it’s a competitive-focused game but it should have at least a competitive element where “Experience with and love of competitive games” is listed as a “nice-to-have skill.”
Aside from these snippets of information, what the game’s about is anyone’s guess. It’s possible that it’ll be a standalone version of the Crucible mode, but with it being a “new title” it’s unlikely.
The job listing also doesn’t clarify if this is the leaked mobile title or something completely different, but don’t expect it anytime soon if they’re still hiring senior developers.

According to The Game Post, this information came from a “source with knowledge of NetEase’s development plans” and Bungie are said to be collaborating with the Chinese conglomerate for this project.
Bungie has allegedly been working on a new Destiny game for “over two years now” so they might be bringing a mobile port similar to Apex Legends mobile or the upcoming Warzone Mobile. However, it’s possible that they could be developing an entirely new IP altogether.
Is there a Destiny Mobile release date?
At the time of writing, no release date has been confirmed for this mobile game. However, it’s been 5 years since Destiny 2 first arrived, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Bungie are gearing up to release a new entry. We’ll let you know once we hear anything about the release date.
