Fate 2Their high-end cosmetic items have really come into play lately, especially when it comes to equipment. Not too long ago, we had a cosmetic set themed from wooden cargo cars, and during the annual Halloween event of the past Destiny, Destiny, Bungie released a new one. The sparrow is modeled after a giant spider, complete with movable legs. For this summer’s Summer Solstice, we’ve got a new competitor to the crown for best aesthetic vehicle: the Crab Cycle, a motorcycle shaped like a crab.
You can find the Crab Wheel in the Eververse Store this week, where it will run you 800 Silver, or about $8. Like the spider-shaped Skitterscare sparrow, the Crab Wheel features articulated metal legs that move around as you ride your space magic hoverbike. However, throwing it in front of Skitterscare for the best and most grotesque sparrow is the fact that it has claws, both in the front (where you can’t see them while driving, unfortunately) and in the back. (where you maybe see them while driving, even if their location puts them at shame in nature). Crab Cycle is also a great alternative if you’re one of those people who doesn’t deal well with spiders.
The Crab Cycle joins the growing list of awesome, clunky personal transports appearing in Destiny 2. If you’re not familiar, those personal vehicles are called “sparrows” – they’re cars. nimble, maneuverable jet bikes that look more or less like the speed bikes from Return of the Jedi, hovering a few feet above the ground.
Whether Ky Cua is the best sparrow is a matter of personal opinion, especially since it faces stiff competition. In the “jet bikes that look like goofy animals” division, there’s, of course, Skitterscare, as well as the winter-themed Polar Vortex.
And while the Roundabout is at least running for the best vehicle of the summer, to really claim the crown it has to face the king of all sparrows: the Micro Mini.
However, I bought the Crab Cycle because I was such a parasite in Destiny 2. all the immortal superhero players were running around, performing the dance at the same time. In a stellar move, Bungie has even released lore entries featuring alien enemies discussing the madness of watching the Guardians perform sparrow tricks and dances as they die. kill your enemies.
If only this entry bike could grip the Hive Thralls with its hooves, it would be perfect. Well, maybe next year.
