Destiny 2's next Iron Banner has gear actually worth fighting for

No Caption Provided

The studio is introducing unique perks to raid armor, perks that only function when you're on the Leviathan.

Oh man, this is gonna make Celestial Nighthawk even more of a beast. Giving an example, the developer says that while playing the Leviathan Raid, a new mod - called Emperor's Blaze - will now give 25% buff to Solar ability damage. Speaking of raid loot, it's no longer tied to specific sections of the raid, so "no matter what encounter you clear, you can get raid loot". You're now guaranteed raid-only equipment when you complete an encounter, and you'll always have a chance of scoring exotic gear you can start using right away. When you throw raid-specific mod perks and a drop-enhancing Ghost into the mix, you might be more inclined to come back to the raid without feeling like you have to repeat it ad nauseam. First, Seeker of Brilliance enables the chance for encounters to drop Bright Engrams from their loot pools. Remember those Exotics that can drop from encounters I was talking about earlier?

Seeker of Opulence means you have a 50% chance for the Exotic drops to be an item you don't already own.

"I realize this is a bit of an avalanche of text more than a wall, but I wanted to talk about both what we were working on and why we did it", said Auchenpaugh. If we missed the mark on something, please let us know. While the current single use system looks like it will remain, they're going to try and restore the old Destiny system alongside it in some capacity.

However you play, there's an additional perk: Destiny 2's Masterworks perk now covers armor.

Finally, Bungie have addressed and acknowledged work that is ongoing with the shaders system in the game, where they've become nearly impossible to manage in a sensible fashion.

"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".

You want it? You can buy it! The new tournament will begin in a short time, starting on January 30th and will stay until February 6th.

Bungie has announced a host of changes and improvements coming to Destiny 2 next week with the release of a new patch. In addition, Bungie has added a way for players to directly buy Iron Banner gear, rather than relying on Engram drops. Players will now be able to purchase armor and weapons from Lord Saladin during each event, and completing challenges for him can unlock ornaments for Iron Banner gear.

And while it won't be coming in the immediate future, Bungie is promising to tackle one of Destiny 2's lingering annoyances: having to delete dozens of shaders one at a time to make room for new ones.
