Destiny 2 microtransactions are not just cosmetic

Destiny 2 microtransactions are not just cosmetic

Destiny 2 players have a burning question: "how do I get a bloody Sparrow?".

Destiny 2 launched on consoles today, and many players already aren't happy with the new way shaders work. Shaders are no longer an unlimited resource, but are now consumable items.

In this Destiny 2 Bright Engrams Farming Guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about farming Bright Engrams to purchase items such as Sparrows, Shaders, Ghost Shells, etc. But as positive as the internet's reaction to the game has been, there is one issue that has a significant portion of the community up in arms.


"There's a lot of content now that we place in these worlds - there's a lot of little offshoots and bits of history - and we don't want people just blasting past it", said Bungie senior environment artist Jason Sussman to Polygon. It can be used to efficiently travel across different places, as well as escape from dangers. Well, better hope you have two more stacks of that same shader in case you ever decide to switch back. Maybe you wanted a yellow hue instead of a blue one (or whatever else). After completing the campaign, players can then pay a visit to Amanda Holliday, a vehicle vendor who also appeared in Destiny. The most popular is the thread calling for the boycott, which is nearing an incredible 40,000 upvotes as of this writing.

"Getting a stockpile of shaders doesn't beat just having a collection you can use at will, even if the shader drops were so frequent that you never ran out of the ones you want", WeilageM writes. While players are able to acquire shaders by accomplishing tasks and defeating enemies in game, they can also spend Silver (the game's premium currency, which can be purchased with real world money) to buy Bright Engrams, which feature a wide variety of items, including shaders. However, shaders are the biggest offender. Many players have responded negatively to the way they function as consumables, and now Bungie has responded with an explanation of why the adjustment was made. In particular, the change to the game's shader system has drawn the ire of the game's fans. Now, all that remains to be seen is whether Bungie will listen.
