  • The weapon's name and description both seem to reference a specific type of PTSD, often associated with soldiers who participated in the Vietnam War.
  • 1000 Yard Stare technically only exists in Destiny 2 as its Destiny 1 counterpart includes a hyphen between "1000" and "Yard". Thus, originally named 1000-Yard Stare
