Destiny 2 has come out and has been hugely successful with many within the gaming community praising it for the in game changes. Yet there have been some who have nitpicked some of the supposed flaws in the game.

In their weekly report Bungie stated that “Millions” of Guardians  are already playing the game, which seems to suggest that the game has already been deemed a success. Bungie also posted a roadmap of activities for Destiny 2 that players can expect in their first month. The first raid will start from next week, Leviathan, as well as the Trials of the Nine in PvP and the vendor of exotic goodies Xur will also be making a return.

However along with heaps of praise their also comes criticism, such is the nature of this industry. One such criticism has been the constant grind that players have to go through to earn shaders within the game. They can now be used only once, previously though they could be used infinite amount of times.In Destiny 2 and its predecessor Destiny shaders offer you the option of customize your weapons and apparel with different colors. Shaders can also now be bought through microtransactions which further intensified the debate. yet it is also interesting to note that players have reported that they have gotten more shaders in game than they can count, and hence this is a non- issue.

Here is the official statement by Bungie on the matter:

“In Destiny 2, there are more options than before for earning and applying color to your character, your ship, your weapons, even individual pieces of armor. The changes to the way Shaders work have started a new conversation in the community about customization and rewards. This morning, Game Director Luke Smith weighed in with some notes on the topic.”
