In a recently released blog post, Bungie Inc. has explained in detail, its plans for overhauling the crafting system of weapons with the upcoming Destiny 2: Lightfall DLC.
Bungie has made the decision to remove the Deepsight attunement objectives entirely from Destiny 2: Lightfall. The studio has said that if the players want the pattern progress they can dismantle the Deepsight weapon but if they wish to obtain the Pattern progress as well as keep the weapon, they will have the option to immediately obtain the pattern without dismantling the weapon.
Players will have the option to use in-game currency to upgrade a craftable weapon to a red border variant, provided they have not yet acquired a naturally dropped red border version of the weapon. This upgrade can only be done once. Certain weapons will also cost more to activate Deepsight on, like raid weapons.
Players will be able to augment their Raid Adept gear with enhanced Perks, elevating their performance beyond their usual capabilities. However, this enhancement process will require both resources and leveling.
Since unique weapon-crafting resources aren’t integrated into the economy, they are going to be removed. The relic tether will also be removed from the player’s inventories.
Similarly, Resonant and Harmonic alloys will also be removed from the game, but Bungie has not been specific about when it plans to do so. Weapon crafting will now cost regular resources like legendary shards, enhancement cores, etc.
A new weapon modification will be introduced, which will enable players to level up their crafted or enhanced weapons by spending standard in-game currencies. Although not the only means of upgrading the weapons, this modification may prove to be more convenient.
Although a number of changes are planned for implementation in the upcoming DLC release, not all of them will be immediately integrated into Destiny 2: Lightfall. Certain changes will be added at a later point in time.
Destiny 2: Lightfall is a free-to-play online multiplayer first-person shooter which was initially released in 2017.
