When the next big update for space MMO Destiny 2 arrives December 7, you can expect to see some changes to your favourite third party Destiny 2 apps coming shortly after. That’s because Destiny 2 will be dropping the glimmer cost associated with armour mods, and opening up Armour 2.0 mods, weapon perks, shaders, and more to app developers.
Apps like Destiny Item Manager and Ishtar Commander make it easy to manage your Destiny 2 inventory from your mobile device or web browser, but historically there have been some limitations on what these apps can do with the Destiny 2 API. Fortunately, Bungie says it’s ready to at least start opening up the options available to developers, with an eye toward making loadout creation and management possible through these apps.
“Starting next week, you can swap out your armor mods instantaneously, at any time, with no Glimmer or currency required,” writes senior community manager Dylan ‘dmg04’ Gafner in the latest This Week at Bungie. “The goal of the team is to better enable build crafting on the fly, whether you be loading into a PvP match or prepping for a Nightfall.”
