The Oryx fight at the end of the Destiny's King's Fall raid is a rather tough proposition for six players.

Destiny has a huge universe with more aliens to shoot than you can fathom. However, as the game has progressed, one thing I've found interesting is the new 'big bads' that have emerged.

Destiny: The Taken King Soundtrack Getting Released Next Week

Destiny: The Taken King Soundtrack Getting Released Next Week

The Destiny soundtrack from last year had moments of pure brilliance on it.
