Destiny 2: Forsaken’s new collections will give you an arsenal to access on the fly

Destiny 2 forsaken (2)

There’s a certain satisfaction to having a complete set of themed guns in Destiny 2. Right now, I’m attempting just that with the summer catalogue of Osiris-themed weapons, gorgeous hunks of overdesigned metal and bullet-delivery systems that I’m this close to completing. We’ve all got a completionist inside of us, and that fella is going to be mighty satisfied with how Bungie is handling its weapon collection in the Forsaken expansion.

One of the biggest new features in that massive slice of DLC, will be collections. A menu that you can call up at any time, Collections detail exactly what you have and what you don’t have. The biggest draw of Collections, is that it’ll enable players to grab whatever weapons, armor, ghosts, ships, sparrows, emblems or shaders they want, for a small price of course. On the Bungie Blog, the developer detailed how the system will work:

D2 Collections 2

  • Reacquisition isn’t a currency sink. We aren’t trying to make you spend all of your hard-earned Glimmer. We just want to make sure the items you find out in the world still have value.
  • Players won’t have to deal with currency conversions. For example, if a shader dismantles into Glimmer, it costs Glimmer to reacquire. If the shader came from Eververse, it will dismantle into Bright Dust, and therefore costs Bright Dust to reacquire. These same goals are true of all Collection items.

D2 Collections 1

The most important part of this system, is just how much power every requisitioned item will when players grab it from their Collections inventory. Bungie says that they’ll be looking to avoid having the items create a power-leveling exploit, with weapons and gear usually matching the Light Level of your Guardian.

The catch here, is that players will not be able to purchase randomly rolled legendary weapons and armor from their Collection once year two begins. Bungie is looking to fix that problem, but Guardians will still at least be able to say what they have, before they store it in their vault and promptly forget about it until that one weekend when Xur offers the Huckleberry and they need to grab a few legendary shards.

Destiny 2: Forsaken launches on September 4, which gives you only a precious few months left to say goodbye to Cayde-6.

    Sigh. If you buy this DLC you can never complain about things like lootboxes or scummy DLC practices again.

    Just saying.

      No, you certainly can (and many will) still complain about lootboxes and scummy DLC practices. The only difference is how seriously anyone will take them. 🙂

        Suppose that is also true.

    In a matter not related to Destiny…

    Just saw now on the PS Store that The Division is only going for R140. To all who have played it, please tell me, is it worth it?

      For R140, you should be able to crack out a solid number of hours in The Division. That’s a solid price, plus all the free updates have made it properly fab as well.

      For R140 it’s a steal

        Sold. Cheers, D.
        Added incentive is that one of my best mates has also recently picked it up, so I have someone to jam with.

          Just avoid the Dark Zone. Griefers galore.

          They also have a semi pve survival battle royal mode that came out a few years ago. Well worth a few playthroughs as it was massive fun.

            Ugh, Battle Royale ain’t my cup o’ tea.

            I worded it wrong. It is a battle royal in the sense that only a certain number of people can make it out but everything else is pve and you start with no skills or gear you have to collect and craft them. It really is fun.

            Shot, will check it when when I get a chance to. Like I just mentioned below, my jam time at the moment is far and few between.
            I currently only have maybe two or three nights at home. In about a week, that’s going to shrink to one.
            And then zero….
            *sigh* Why I do this to my self, I do not know….

            Yeah my days are solidly booked at this moment as well so I get maybe 3 solid hours a week at the moment.

            I’ve had two nights off that I SHOULD have been using to learn lines (something I HATE doing).
            I jammed games. I was naughty.

            I bought Fallout VR thinking I might play it. I have not even plugged in my Vive yet since they remodeled my place.

            Would still love to get VR for my PS, but with the thin selection of games currently available, I can’t justify it.
