If you’ve performed Destiny 2 these days, you could have seen a brand new emote through which Guardians all of a sudden sprout a pair of neon horn-rimmed glasses and a prodigious mustache, after which proceed into essentially the most rigorous sequence of finger-guns variations witnessed by mortals. It’s referred to as Unbridled Enthusiasm, and it’s a nod to a particular Bungie worker, FX artist Dave Samuel.
Bungie lately tweeted a brief video of Samuel himself teaching a motion-capture performer on the Unbridled Enthusiasm emote. It seems the brand new unique emote, now obtainable in Destiny 2’s Forsaken enlargement, is aptly named – even mid-performance, Samuel’s enthusiasm is unbridled to the purpose of infectiousness. He and the mo-cap performer sq. off, capturing imaginary rays of pleasure and lasers at one another.
“Yeah, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!” growls Samuel, after which they each break down into giggles.
Like any interview with Samuel you could have seen, it’s fully charming.
Samuel’s expertise as a human sound results machine comes by within the video as effectively – he gives all of the pew-pew sounds and explosion noises himself, as standard.
Here’s Bungie’s tweet, with the video clip.

Whatever points Destiny 2 gamers could have had with Bungie over the course of the game’s life, David Samuel is broadly considered a mad hero inside the corporate, somebody they will’t assist however love.
His emote’s in-game textual content reads “Get excited and like things,” which by all appearances is Samuel’s guiding philosophy in game design.
