How Shaders Work In Destiny 2
With all the buzz around the Destiny 2 currencies that are being deleted forever along with tons of other kicked content, we’ve decided to bring it back to the basics and add more light on how to equip shaders. Because different content comes and goes, but shaders stay.
How to use shaders in Destiny 2?
Basically, to look good. Shaders are items that you can apply to your armor to give it a different color or texture than it has in the original. So get ready for the update of Destiny 2, which will take place in November 2020, with a badass look.
How to apply shaders in Destiny 2?
Do you want to get real hardcore gameplay? Then you need to look sharp for it. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Before you were able to change your whole gear you needed to apply just one. Every piece of gear you want to change needs to be individually shaded so a full set will set you back by 5 lots! Just something to focus on.
Here is a step by step guide on how to apply shaders in Destiny 2:
- Open your inventory.
- Select any piece of armor that’s Rare quality (or higher).
- Hit Triangle/Y to see that item’s details.
- Select your preferred shader from the armor mods on the left side of the screen.
That is quite it. It can be a bit frustrating to change the shader for every item so here are some basic coloristic rules that will guide to your ultimate appearance.

That way you’ll not only have a fresh character but more exciting gameplay. As Freddy Mercury used to say: “I dress to kill, but tastefully.”
