Destiny Daily 12/14/17: Challenges, Modifiers, Gunsmith Mods

Destiny Daily

It’s a new day in Destiny, ripe with new challenges and unfortunately no change in the vendors purchasable weapon from yesterday. I don’t know about you folks, but the patch this week as really reignited my joy of the game. Some of the armor pieces that I wanted but didn’t care for the heavy RNG of a rankup reward to get, can be purchased directly and that has me out farming Tokens on destinations that I never spent much time on (looking at you Io). Challenges, which I used to ignore, offer up a great source of tokens while farming. I even enjoy doing the Daily Heroic Adventures on Mercury, when they work that is (and today they actually are for me).

Next week, December 19th, The Dawning comes to Destiny 2 and last through January 9th. We’ll have the post up shortly detailing that. In January, Bungie will reveal what changes are coming to the game in their January update as well as the update after that one. There’s still a lot fundamentally wrong with the game, but in my opinion Curse of Osiris and the update this week are making progress on correcting some stuff and providing a reason to log in and play everyday and not feel like you’re wasting time.

How are you guys enjoying Destiny 2 in the week after Curse of Osiris and the new update that introduced Masterwork weapons (I love these) and purchasable vendor items? Let me know in the comments.

Daily Milestone

Destiny 2 Vendor Weapons

Weapons can be purchased from most vendors once you have received 10 reward engrams from that vendor. This is character based, not account based. Weapon selection resets daily. Weapons cost 20 Legendary Shards AND 10 of the vendor specific Tokens.

VENDOR WEAPON NAME WEAPON TYPE INTRINSIC / TRAIT
Commander Zavala (Tower) Wicked Sister Grenade Launcher Adaptive Frame / Auto-Loading Holster
Lord Shaxx (Tower) Swift Solstice Energy Sidearm Suros Rapid-Fire / Zen Moment
Devrim Kay (EDZ) Hawthorne’s Field-Forged Shotgun Shotgun Lightweight Frame / Full Auto Trigger System
Sloane (Titan) Nox Echo III Fusion Rifle Adaptive Frame / Hip-Fire Grip
Failsafe (Nessus) The Mornin’ Comes Sniper Rifle Adaptive Frame / Outlaw
Asher Mir (Io) The Rattler Energy Sidearm Lightweight Frame / Kill Clip

These are suppose to reset daily, yet each weapon today is the same that the vendor was selling yesterday. Really hope that’s a one off and that didn’t stealth change it to be a weekly reset.


Destiny 2 Legendary mods

The Gunsmith is selling the following Legendary Mods today for 5 Mod Components and 10 Legendary Shards:

  • Arc Damage Mod
  • Energy Counterbalance Mod [Arms Armor Mod]
  • Power Bracket Mod [Chest Armor Mod]

You can also spend 2 Mod Components and 1000 Glimmer to roll the dice on a random Legendary Armor or Weapon mod.

That’s all for today. Tomorrow, Trials of the Nine returns and Xur will arrive to. If you don’t own Curse of Osiris, worry not, Xur will NOT be appearing on Mercury.
