Bungie plans on fixing Destiny 2's controversial shader system

Destiny 2 Iron Banner NEWS Weapons Armour Ornaments REVEALED

It appears that the developer Bungie has granted some of those requests, at least with the first major update for 2018.

The Iron Banner, with the Control gametype, will begin after the release of patch 1.1.2 on Tuesday.

On Thursday, Bungie announced that the January update for the game will come alongside the year's inaugural Iron Banner week.

Destiny 2's Iron Banner tournament is coming back, and it'll arrive with new weapons and Ornaments for you to collect. This time around, there's no limit to the number of engrams that players can earn during the week. The Iron Banner will run from January 30 to February 6, and will start after the release of the patch 1.1.2 on Tuesday.

All raid encounters now also have a chance to drop an exotic item, and the exotic is already decrypted so you can start using it immediately.

The dollar index is now trading at 89.1; continuing its decline that started back in December 2016. On Thursday, Mnuchin said this is not a "shift in my position on the dollar at all".

"Get as much playtime as you can during the week". A new emblem can be earned by completing the Iron Banner Milestone, and it will showcase a player's lifetime Iron Banner rank ups. "Go nuts!" Bungie says. So far, the weapon and armor perks have been more or less general. The raid gear will be on sale at the raid vendor, which you can buy using Legendary Shards and Calus Tokens.

The Prestige raid will drop both Prestige and Normal items, so there is no need to run the raid again. Also, these will be reusable, i.e., a player can shift to usual mods for regular activities, and revert back to specific mods for the Raid. Bungie is looking into ways to allow players to copy existing shaders, and may also reintroduce shader collections.

Better Raid rewards are also in the offing in an upcoming Destiny 2 update, with Prestige serving up double drops and a guaranteed Raid piece. The system of customizing and coloring armor from Destiny 1 was expanded to include weapons and other items in Destiny 2, but in the process, shaders were made into consumable items rather than permanent unlocks.

Bungie promised Destiny 2 players significant changes to the endgame PVE. Players can rework Masterwork Armor into any stat combination players like. Of these, Restorative armor is the most useful as it allows a player to look sharp without sacrificing survivability.

In the most recent "This Week at Bungie" blog post, Senior Design Lead Tyson Green stepped in to acknowledge the issue with shaders and give a little bit of insight into why it's not that easy to let players delete entire stacks of them at once. Each Masterwork piece will grant 3% damage resistance while using a Super, up to a 15% reduction for Guardians wearing a full set of Masterwork armor. We are planning to continue updating this system and adding additional benefits. "For now, it was important to us that you know it's on our workbench".
