Ada-1 is ditching mods for shaders.

Recently, Bungie has been announcing many quality-of-life changes and general improvements to Destiny 2 like the major buildcraft changes, and now changes to shaders. Shaders are key to customizing your Guardian and with these changes, shaders will be more accessible than ever. Here is what is happening to shaders when Destiny 2 Lightfall starts.

Every Shader Change in Destiny 2 Lightfall Explained

Shaders, if you are unfamiliar, are color palettes that you unlock permanently in Destiny 2. They can be applied to any armor piece to change the color of your Guardian’s armor. Previous to Lightfall, the only way to get shaders was through vendors and the Eververse store.

In a recent announcement from Bungie, when Lightfall begins, shaders will now be sold by Ada-1 in the Tower. In Season 20, which is the Lightfall season, and on, shaders can be bought from Ada-1 in the Tower for 10,000 Glimmer. This is a great change since shaders were previously locked behind Bright Dust.

Ada-1 will only sell three shaders per week in Season 20 and on. This means that you’ll need to bank at least 30,000 Glimmer every week to potentially buy the coll shaders on offer.

And the best part is that along with new shaders, Ada-1 will release fan-favorite shaders that haven’t been available for a very long time.
