Destiny 2's been dogged by a number of controversies, which has made it hard for the online shooter to retain players. Rest assured, Bungie has plans for winning you back, and they start with an adjustment to the game's controversial shaders.
Currently, Destiny 2's shaders are one-and-done items that are acquired randomly, unlike the first Destiny's shaders. Shaders reportedly drop much more often when you reach level 20, but the shift in the system (which some players feel are meant to rope them into spending money on microtransactions) proved unpopular.
Cheer up: Things are probably going to get better. "We understand you want shaders to be more freely usable and not limited by availability," Bungie community manager Chris "Cozmo" Shannon writes in an extensive blog post about what's coming up in Destiny 2. "We're looking at re-introducing shader collections or a way to get copies of a shader in your possession.
"This work is ongoing, and we'll go on record as to when the solution will land as we get closer to a fix that we test and certify. For now, it was important to us that you know it's on our workbench."
The blog post also outlines upcoming events, including the Iron Banner event, which starts on January 30 and lets players pick their rewards instead of relying on random results. There are also changes on raid loot drops, and a new exotic raid ghost, The Contender's Shell, is available. Take a look at Bungie's news post for a full list of what's coming and going. There's a lot.
