So I never got into Destiny - possibly because I was having too much fun with the Far Crys and Dragon Ages at the end of last year - but that doesn't mean you can't. And millions of you do.
That awkward sentence is out of the way, so its time to tell you about a really legendary gift. And by that I do mean Legendary. Bungie is rolling out millions of totally free Legendary items to its players today. All you have to do it log in, head to the tower and chat to the Postmaster. He (or it) will reveal a magical email from an Unknown Benefactor which somehow has a weapon as an attachment. Don't ask.
Open it and you'll get a legendary item, a primary, secondary or heavy weapon with some fun random perks. If you've been playing for a long time there's a chance you'll have outpaced the gun but for those who haven't logged in for awhile, or new Christmas players, it should provide some much needed firepower.
