'Destiny 2' players are furious that shaders can only be used once

Destiny 2 Nightfall Strike Recommended Level and Time Limit Explained

It looks like there might be some microtransactions in Destiny 2 that could potentially impact gameplay.

Destiny 2 has Bright Engrams, using them you can buy Sparrows, Shaders, Ghost Shells and more items. Whether and how Bungie responds to these player concerns will set a strong precedent for the years of Destiny 2 ahead.

Once you have completed Destiny 2's Red War story campaign and reached level 20, check in with all the vendors and NPCs in the social space for a range of rewards, including a Sparrow. Bungie's sequel makes so many little quality of life improvements on the original that it's hard to count them all, but those two relatively minor tweaks are dominating the community conversation a few days after launch.

In a series of tweets this afternoon, Destiny 2 game director Luke Smith explained the thought process behind changing the way shaders work in the sequel. Shaders are no longer an unlimited resource, but are now consumable items.

Shaders, in Destiny parlance, are special items that change the coloring of your gear.

As the clock struck midnight last night, countless gamers from all around the world logged into Destiny 2 for the first time to embark on a new adventure. In essence it takes the Chroma system of cosmetics that was introduced for some armour in the original Destiny after Rise of Iron and spins it out across the whole game with microtransactions.

The Sparrow is one of the most useful things in "Destiny 2". Instead, players are expected to gather Armor Shaders in bulk. One of those threads is actually an attempt to put the situation in perspective, but the others plead with Bungie to change the shaders, call for a Destiny microtransaction boycott, and claim the shader change has doomed the game, respectively. Now, all that remains to be seen is whether Bungie will listen. If you want to change the color of your gun, or shoes, or whatever, you can do that.

For the game's most dedicated audience, though, it's a real problem that directly conflicts with the sense of ownership and in-game representation that's at the heart of the game.
