Destiny 2’s Bottomless Grief and Celerity perks will see an enormous rework subsequent season, Bungie mentioned Thursday in its weekly blog post. The studio additionally revealed vital overhauls for 2 Tower distributors, giving gamers separate areas to buy weapons or armor. Both the perk and vendor adjustments will seem in Destiny 2 season 14, which begins May 11 and will see the return of the Vault of Glass raid and the addition of a Transmog system.

With the return of Trials of Osiris final 12 months, Bungie added a brand new perk that may roll solely on Trials weapons: Celerity. Celerity is a novel perk that drastically improves participant stats in the event that they’re the one dwelling member of their Fireteam in PvP. The studio added an analogous perk for Strike-specific weapons earlier this 12 months, Bottomless Grief. Guns with Bottomless Grief will mechanically reload their journal when gamers get kills. But like Celerity, Bottomless Grief solely works when a participant is the final dwelling Fireteam member.

These perks sound good, however hardly ever really feel helpful in the second. As weapons function lead Chris Proctor famous, “Players never like betting against themselves or their teams.” Without that fail state, the perks do nothing, making them undesirable for many gamers.

But beginning subsequent season, each perks will see some enchancment. Bottomless Grief will mechanically grant gamers +30 to the Magazine stat (which is a share improve to ammo, primarily based on the weapon sort) in addition to its standard perk. Celerity will provide gamers +20 to the Reload and Handling stat in addition to the “last player standing” base impact.

Even higher, each perks will mechanically seem on Adept weapons — Bottomless Grief for Grandmaster weapons, and Celerity for Trials weapons. The perk will seem as a separate node underneath the left-most perk, giving gamers the selection to pick out certainly one of these new perks or one thing like Outlaw that rolled in the opposite slot. It’s not solely clear if these perks will now be reserved for Adept weapons and that particular slot, or if they’ll nonetheless randomly roll on non-Adept variations (we’re inclined to consider the latter),

Bungie famous that different game-mode-specific perks — what Bungie is now calling “origin perks” — labored nicely with the brand new perks added by way of the Deep Stone Crypt raid. The studio mentioned it plans so as to add extra origin perks in the long run, though it appears it’ll keep away from “failure state” perks like the unique Celerity and Bottomless Grief going ahead. It’s price noting that gamers might want to get new Adept weapons if they need the assured Bottomless Grief or Celerity nodes.

In addition to those perk adjustments, Bungie additionally revealed some vendor enhancements coming in season 14. The studio beforehand introduced that Ada-1 will return to the Tower to function the Transmog vendor — what Bungie says it’ll now name “Armor Synthesis,” or the method of constructing one piece of armor appear like one other. But the brand new weblog detailed one other function for her: armor vendor.

Ada-1 will promote two random armor mods every day, giving new gamers an opportunity to diversify their arsenal of mods. Ada-1 may even promote a whole armor set randomly pulled from the world loot pool (solely armor that drops from common actions or enemies, so no raid armor). This weekly armor set works equally to Xur in that it adjustments weekly and has mounted stats for all gamers for the given week.

With Ada-1 taking up weapon duties, Banshee-44 — the Gunsmith — will increase his weapon providing. Starting subsequent season, Banshee-44 will randomly promote six completely different weapons per week (two Kinetic, two Energy, and two Power). Each weapon comes with a static perk roll, giving gamers the possibility to unfold the phrase to associates if Banshee-44 has a very good weapon on the market. This is a superb new addition for gamers who can’t appear to select up a great roll for False Promises or another weapon in the overall world drop pool.

Both Ada-1 and Banshee-44 will promote improve supplies like Ascendant Shards and Prisms. All of those adjustments ought to seem in sport on May 11, at first of Destiny 2’s as-yet-unnamed 14th season.
