Destiny’s 2.2.0 April Update adds Chroma Gear and Revamped Infusion System

During last night’s Destiny April Update Livestream Art Lead, Keith Bachman and Designer, Brent Woodrow, gave their expertise on the new, earnable gear set to be included in Destiny Update 2.2.0.

Players of Destiny will soon be able to take full advantage of a newly revamped, upgraded Infusion system that will aid in cutting down on some of Destiny players daily grinds. Boosting players stats on weapons and armour through Infusion will become a one-on-one upgrade, which overall means higher and lower weapons that are infused will see the less powerful weapon come out at the same level. As of this moment, the less powerful of the two weapons only receives a portion of the stronger light level, this new system will remove the slow process.

One of the other big reveals from last nights Bungie livestream were the new customisation options coming via the Chroma feature. Chroma is a new feature that can be applied to select sets of gear and weapons to further customise your Guardian, according to Bungie.

Brand new Taken-themed Gear is also set to drop in April, with a full set of Desolate Armor up for grabs that unlocks a new unique Taken emote titled “Shiver”.

“Both Chroma and Taken-themed gear can be found in Sterling Treasures.

“Three Sterling Treasures can be obtained each week by visiting the Postmaster after each weekly reset, successfully completing one Level 41 Prison of Elders activity, and completing one match in the featured Weekly Crucible Playlist.

“Additional Sterling Treasures can also be purchased via Tess Everis in the Eververse Trading Company stores.

“Faction packages will now contain select Chroma-enabled versions of their Legendary armor sets at up to 330 Light. Updated Prison of Elders Legendary Gear is also Chroma-enabled and can drop at up to 335 Light in Challenge of the Elders.”

Destiny Update 2.2.0 will deploy on 12th April, 2016 giving you new ways to level up and customise your Guardians.
