Bungie has been consistently under fire by users ever since Destiny 2 released. There have been some major ups and downs, but it feels like we’re finally hitting that high on the roller coaster. The team over at Bungie is looking to repeal the current shader system that has caused all kinds of drama in the community, there’s a new Iron Banner event happening, and all kinds of other cool things are being added or adjusted in the game.
First let’s talk about the shaders. Bungie has plans in the works to change the Destiny 2 shader system to one much more familiar to original Destiny players. The ability to more freely use shaders, and have access to more are some of Bungie’s top concerns. They’re also doing their best to try to find ways to delete stacks of shaders all at one time rather than individually. Bungie’s latest blog post explains this is much more detail if you want to check it out at the bottom of this article.
The newest Iron Banner event for Destiny 2 will be starting on Tuesday, January 30 and will run until Tuesday, February 6. There will be Season 2 weapons in the Iron Banner Engrams in case you didn’t get a chance to snag them. But of course there will also be brand new items including a new hand cannon, scout rifle, shotgun, and many more. A brand new emblem has also been introduced into the game that will showcase how many rank ups you’ve gotten in Iron Banner. Players will earn this emblem by finishing the Iron Banner Milestone. New to this Iron Banner event will also be the ability to get armor and three weapons directly from Lord Saladin. Another bit of news that Destiny 2 fans will be excited about, there’s no limit to how many engrams or tokens you can get during this Iron Banner. Bungie urges fans to “Go nuts!”
Masterwork weapons have been in Destiny 2 for a good bit of time now, but Bungie is also introducing Armor Masterworks. It’s possible for a Masterwork to drop from Legendary armor now. Bungie has also made some changes to Raid rewards to better suit players wants and needs. Raid armor that drops will now have perks, this also includes Raid armor that you already own. Bungie has changed the system so that Raid encounters will always drop some sort of reward. There’s also the fact that if you finished a Prestige Raid you’ll get Prestige and normal loot drops. Destiny 2 ‘s Raid vendors will now change their stock every single week. And a brand new item has been added to Raids, Ghost Contender’s Shell.
