'Destiny 2' Guide: How to get a Sparrow

In fairness this is great

This was introduced after the release of The Taken King as a way to generate money for the game's continued development and still provide additional expansion-like content and events without selling smaller paid DLC expansions - Destiny 2, funnily enough, features both microtransactions and two paid expansions in its first year. Guild Wars 2 has cosmetic items called dyes which are virtually identical to Destiny 2's shaders.

Smith also makes it clear that Bungie wants the shaders, which are exclusive to different destinations and activities in the game, to be an extra driving force to encourage players to be playing more activities on a regular basis. As players note, they feel slightly betrayed as the sequel offers plenty of quality of life improvements while this change feels like a slimy way to drive up microtransactions. Knowing these prices help gauge what players will have to pay to purchase Bright Engrams with Silver. You popped one into your shader slot and it would color all of your armor in matching tones.

What happens if you get a new set of gear? This was the most active of them all - look at those upvotes!

UEFA puts Paris Saint-Germain finances under investigation
European football's governing body UEFA says it will be looking at the deals under its Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations. Arsene Wenger says that Arsenal wanted to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer, but were unable to afford his transfer fee.

The top-voted thread on the subject - titled, "Do not spend a SINGLE CENT on micro transactions until shaders become unlimited use" - makes it clear what the problem is: "Shaders being one time use is a deliberate decision to make an aspect of the game worse for the sake of profit".

"Getting a stockpile of shaders doesn't beat just having a collection you can use at will, even if the shader drops were so frequent that you never ran out of the ones you want", WeilageM writes. However, shaders are the biggest offender. You'll get them in batches (3 or 5 at a time, from what I've seen so far) and you'll have to put them on individual pieces of equipment, which uses them up. The shader controversy is dominating discussion in the Destiny community, despite the fact that it exclusively involves cosmetics, because few things piss people off like games changing for the sake of microtransactions.

For its part, Bungie has remained quiet on the issue to date.
