Destiny 2 season 13 will get reissued Forsaken and Shadowkeep weapons
In Bungie’s very first post of the year, the studio strolled back a few of Fate 2’s weapon and armor sunsetting from late in 2015. Beginning in February, gamers can re-earn some old armor and weapons in both the Dreaming City and the Moon.
Beginning in season 13 — which must introduce on Feb. 9, according to the in-game countdown clock — 8 weapons and 2 armor sets will return from Forsaken and Shadowkeep. Gamers who currently own these weapons or armor pieces will require to re-earn them in their uncapped kinds.
- Waking Vigil, Sleepless, Vouchsafe, and Retold Tale from the Dreaming City
- Apostate, Blasphemer, and Apostate from the Moon
- Premonition will likewise be on the Moon, however special to the Pit of Heresy dungeon
- The Reverie Dawn armor set from the Dreaming City
- The Dreambane armor from the Dreaming City
According to Bungie’s post, it seems like gamers can get never-before-seen rolls of these weapons from their particular dungeons — Shattered Throne in the Dreaming City and Pit of Heresy on the Moon. The armor pieces will likewise drop with extremely high statistics from the dungeons.
Bungie ended up this area of its post by stating that not every weapon from older locations like these will go back to the loot swimming pool. However with these reissues, gamers must have more factors to hang around on the Moon or in the Dreaming City. This announcement comes after some major frustrations rumbling through the Destiny community post-Beyond Light.
When Destiny 2: Beyond Light launched last November, Bungie implemented its infusion capping system. Players could no longer infuse weapons that were more than a year old. Infusion is a process that involves feeding a high-powered weapon to a low-powered one, causing the low-powered weapon to gain strength. For activities that require high power levels like the raid Trials of Osiris, or Nightfalls, these older weapons became virtually unusable.
Nearly all the weapons from the Forsaken and Shadowkeep expansions saw an infusion cap in November, despite both expansions still being for sale. This caused a frustration point where new gamers have no loot incentives to play through these expansions, meaning they could invest their money only to get a handful of Exotic quests and no Legendary loot.
Fate 2’s game director, Luke Smith, recently told Polygon that the studio is looking into ways to improve sunsetting. While the studio still deems it necessary, it’s causing some pain points and unexpected behavior in the neighborhood. Bungie will continue to repeat on sunsetting throughout the year.
