Details on Destiny 2’s microtransactions

It looks like Destiny 2 may feature micro-transactions that give players a boost over their peers, something Bungie swore they would not do years ago in the first game.

Popular Destiny streamer KingGothalion inspected some Bright Engrams during a stream and it turns out there are mods you can purchase for your weapons that will change the item in question’s elemental property. You could use this to destroy a foe’s shield quicker or shoot more accurately with increased weapon stability. It isn’t clear if these benefits will improve a player’s performance in PvP but in PvE that seems to be the case.

Of course, these Bright Engrams can be unlocked through normal play but they can also be purchased using silver at Eververse.
