Destiny 2 Lore Pocket Infinity

Exotic Weapon Lore

Destiny 2 hints at Pocket Infinity

“You will find the nightmares grow worse. Thankfully, you no longer have need to sleep.” – Gallida Tuyet.

Welcome back Guardians, the quote you just heard is from the Destiny 2 warlock bond, Ego Talon. The reason why this item description is really interesting is that Gallida Tuyet is from Fireteam Tuyet which is the lost Fireteam on Venus, a fireteam who had the schematics for the creation of Pocket Infinity. This lore is told to us in the year 1 exotic bounty, “Shattered memory fragment”. So today we are going to talk about the lore of pocket infinity and the significance of this item in Destiny 2.

As usual, when I upload, I will be live over on twitch. Right now, I am actually working through the Titan quest lines to screen capture all the lore to complete my subclass lore videos. Feel free to come and join. The script for this video is also available on my website, see the link below. This is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest destiny lore episode.

Before we get to the significance of the Destiny 2 warlock bond and the new quote, lets talk about the lore of pocket infinity from year one. After you receive the exotic bounty you are tasked with visiting Venus to discover a dead ghost from Fireteam Tuyet, the in-game description reads,

Track down Fireteam Tuyet’s last stand.

One of our Venus patrols found a memory fragment on the remains of a destroyed Vex. This fragment concerns the final mission of Fireteam Tuyet, lost long ago on Venus’ Shattered Coast. Perhaps one of their Ghosts can be recovered.

The interesting thing about this, is that the memory fragment is in-fact on a Vex, a Venus patrol found this memory fragment on a Vex, which was then passed to you, you are then tasked with further investigating this fragment to see if you can find a dead Ghost from Fireteam Tuyet. So, you visit Venus and do discover a dead ghost from Fireteam Tuyet, however the dead ghost can only be activated with the mind fluid from a Vex Gate lord. The in-game description reads,

Kill a Vex Gate Lord with the Heroic modifier active.

The Tuyet Ghost is damaged. But its last memories ask for the mind fluid of a Vex Gate Lord – the key to its dying secret.

The fact that the first memory fragment from Fireteam Tuyet was found on a Vex and then the dead ghost requires Vex mind fluid, is what really interests me. The reason why it is interesting, is that it may imply that Fireteam Tuyet were infected by the Vex.  With the new cards from Age of Triumph we know that Guardians and their Ghosts can be infected by Vex cells. In Ghost Fragment: Eris Morn, Eris Morn visits an awoken Guardian named Asher Mir. Asher Mir is unconscious in a medical bay and his arm has been replaced by Vex machinery, the card also implies the ghost has also been “infected” due to its now red eye. The Card ends with,

“The room returned to stillness. The blip of the Awoken man’s heart echoed from the machines. And the Ghost stared into the night, its red eye never blinking.”

This is not the first time that a guardian has been infected by Vex cells. The Vault of Glass fireteam appears to have also been infected, Kabr is the best example of this. The Relic: The Aegis grimoire card implies that Vex cells have entered his blood and brain. The card reads,

I have destroyed myself to do this. They have taken my Ghost. They are in my blood and brain. But now there is hope.

Furthermore, Pahanin recalls Kabr’s final words in the Vault of Glass grimoire card, of particular importance is that Kabr said that he drank the Vex, the card reads,

“I drank of them. It tasted like the sea.”

Further reinforcing the infectious nature of the Vex cells, is the Vault of Glass armor. Cuirass of the Hezen Lords reads,

“Slept in the armor last night. Woke to feel my heart stuttering to the pattern of an unknown signal.”

Gloves of the Hezen Lords reads,

“Capable gauntlets. Extremely effective. I have only one piece of advice: never touch a living Vex.”

The Prime Zealot Helm reads,

Forged from the cores of Hezen Vex. If you feel a sense of revelation, remove immediately and inject antientheogens.”

By the way, an entheogen is a psychoactive substance used in a spiritual context, this item implies that Vex cells could cause a spiritual hallucination.

The Prime Zealot Greaves reads,

“Skinned in the membranes of the Hezen Vex. There is very little risk they will become permanently attached to your body”

As you can see, within Destiny’s lore it is very well documented that living Vex cells are dangerous, Guardian do not touch them, do not go into the vex fluid ever.

So, why does the Dead Ghost from Tuyet’s fireteam require Vex fluid, well, this may be a clue that the team was consumed, infected by the Vex, similar to Ashir Mir and now Vex fluid can be used to reactivate it and discover its secretes.

Alternatively, it may just be that this was the mission of Fireteam Tuyet, and they died before they gained access to Vex fluid, so we are essentially continuing their mission. The grimoire card for Pocket Infinity does confirm that they were trying to uncover Vex secrets and the design of pocket infinity came from uncovering Vex technology. The pocket infinity card reads,

Fireteam Tuyet died in the Ishtar Sink, hunting the secrets of the Vex. They must have come too close to something precious, for the Vex descended on them with their typical inscrutable, thorough violence.

But their sacrifice was not in vain. The data they gathered helped forge the Pocket Infinity. Properly modified, the weapon should be capable of devastating output on just a single charge cycle.

The Infinity’s mechanisms have proven difficult, if not impossible, to replicate en masse. It is conceivable that the weapon draws its energy from the Vex networks…an ominous possibility. So be wary with it

In addition, the exotic bounty confirms that Gallida Tuyet was a weapons scholar and she was trying to discover vex weaponary. The quest reads,

“Gallida Tuyet was a leading weapons scholar. She and her Fireteam were researching Vex weaponry.” —Ghost

I definitely think it possible that Gallida’s curiosity lead her to close too the Vex and although she gathered invaluable data for the creation of pocket infinity, she was also infected. The reason for this, is have a listen to the new quote from the Destiny 2 warlock bond, it reads

“You will find the nightmares grow worse. Thankfully, you no longer have need to sleep.” – Gallida Tuyet.

This sounds very similar to the paranoia that Kabr and Pahanin suffered after venturing into the Vault of Glass, and it would be really cool if this fireteam was not just lost but in fact transformed into Vex, maybe still within the Vex network.

Regardless to whether you think that Fireteam Tuyet was infected by the Vex or not, it is interesting that we have to access a Vex Gate Lord. Vex Gate lords are very important to the Vex network system, Zydron, Gate Lord grimoire card reads,

Warlock scholars believe that Gate Lords regulate traffic between Vex gates, and that their minds contain codes that might open the way into forbidden realms. An enormous amount of hope and anger has been spent on a particular debate – could we find a Vex gate that opens onto a place and time before the Collapse, and somehow forestall it?

Of course, now my mind races down all the possibilities for the future of Fireteam Tuyet, why were they after a Gate Lord, did they want to gain access to the Vex Gate system, did they in fact gain access to the Vex Gate system, was their mission to travel back in time and prevent the Collapse, why has Destiny 2 mentioned this fireteam, is someone now planning to discover Fireteam Tuyet’s secrets and travel back in time to prevent Ghaul’s invasion? Are Fireteam Tuyet still out there as Vex guardians traveling the Vex network… obviously hanging out with Osiris, just wanting for the Osiris DLC to drop….

Sorry… back on track. Regardless to what rabbit hole you want to jump down, the Gate lord has some significance to Fireteam Tuyet’s story and of course the Gate Lord is significant to the creation of Pocket Infinity, as after you defeat the Gate Lord, you are able to extract schematics from the Dead Ghost to construct pocket infinity. The quest reads,

“Thanks to your efforts, and the deconstructed memories of the Vex Gate Lord you defeated, this Ghost has completed the design of a formidable weapon, Fireteam Tuyet’s legacy: the Pocket Infinity.”

“Perhaps the Gunsmith could build it.”

Following this, Banshee-44 helps you construct Pocket Infinity, which requires dismantling fusion rifles to charge the core and also using Fusion rifles to gather data and stabilise the weapon.

This weapon is already extremely mysterious with its origins from Fireteam Tuyet, but its intrigue continues with the placement of Rasputin’s warmind symbol on the weapon.  At this stage I do not know why this weapon has the warmind symbol. However, my best guess is that it may have something to do with the fusion rifles that Rasputin provided humanity during the Collapse. During the Sleeper Simulant quest line, we discover Dark Age relics called DVALIN relics, which are legendary items that look like fusion rifles, when we hand them to Banshee-44 he says this,

Cryptarchs say there weren’t many guns in the Golden Age. Warminds made “Dvalin Forge” to arm Earth for the attack. But whatever the Collapse was, seems it wasn’t too receptive to bullets. Least, that’s what I remember. Of course, memory ain’t been the same since Twilight Gap. Okay, before Twilight Gap.

So, the Warmind symbol on Pocket infinity may indicate that the Frame is a relic from the collapse and weapon that Rasputin provided humanity. BUT we don’t really know if this is what Fireteam Tuyet would have used, because technically, we only find the schematics in the Dead Ghost and Banshee is infact the one to assembly the weapon, so maybe Banshee had some of these fusion rifle frames and used that in its creation.

To me, pocket Infinity definitely has the blend between Sleeper simulant and Vex Mythoclast, Sleeper simulant because of the warmind symbols, and Vex Mythoclast because of the link to the Vex and the Infinite mechanisms in its firing. The secrets of this weapon still remain mysterious…

Fireteam Tuyet are thought dead, killed whilst hunting the secrets of the Vex. They must have come too close to something precious, for the Vex descended on them with their typical inscrutable, thorough violence.

But their sacrifice was not in vain. The data they gathered helped forge the Pocket Infinity. A weapon capable of devastating output on just a single charge cycle.

The Infinity’s mechanisms have proven difficult, if not impossible, to replicate en masse. It is conceivable that the weapon draws its energy from the Vex networks…an ominous possibility. So be wary with it

Oh.. and Guardian, keep a look out for any time traveling Vex Guardians from Fireteam Tuyet in Destiny 2.

That concludes this latest destiny lore episode, if you would like to support the channel, please leave the phrase “Fireteam Tuyet”, man I will be so happy if we see any lore to do with this fireteam and Pocket infinity in Destiny 2.

As usual, it has been a pleasure, this is myelin games. Peace.
