About

Destiny Guns refers to a series of image macros that use the guns from the video game series Destiny as reaction images, serving as the punchline to a caption.

Origin

On September 9th, 2014, the video game Destiny was released in the United States.[1] Three years later, on September 6th, 2017, a sequel to the game was released in the United States. Both games feature dozens of weapons, many featuring evocative names that contain phrases, colloquialisms and descriptive language, such as "Single Clap," "Unspoken Promise," "Origin Story," "Nameless Midnight" and more (examples below).[2][3]

While memes about the guns have been circulating since the release of the gam, one of the earliest examples of the gun as an image macro was posted by Redditor [8] ItsDanken posted an image of the gun "Whisper of the Worm" with the caption "When you're 16 days into NNN and your penis has evolved to speak." The post received more than 12,000 points (97% upvoted) and 200 comments in four days (shown below).

I always see Destiny as the game with generically-titled characters, vehicles, etc. and trying to make some things sound cool and unique using generic words.

Guardian, Titan and Reaper are three titles I always see in video games (and some movies) nowadays. Overwatch, Call of Duty, etc.
