Destiny 2 began Season 14 with the introduction of one of the game’s biggest new system.

However, the system became highly controversial at the start because fans thought it was confusing. Additionally, players had to grind a lot to gain the currency required to obtain these items in the game. This soured the experience for players and many of them did little with it. However, with Season 15 arriving in a month, it seems like the developers will be massively tweaking it for the better.

Bungie removes Synthstrands from Destiny 2

The developers at Bungie recently announced a major tweak in the most recent This Week At Bungie blog post. The post stated that they will remove the currency of Synthstrands from the game when Season 15 drops next month. Players needed this currency to purchase Armor Synthesis bounties from Ada-1. Instead, from Season 15, players will only need 10,000 Glimmer to buy the same bounties. This is a major change that players have wanted for a long time from the developers.

Why this decision makes sense

Players have stated for a long time that the transmog Armor Synthesis in Destiny 2 is quite complex. With the removal of Synthstrands, players will gain an extra slot in the Consumables inventory bucket. So removing a major element of currency should definitely improve the experience for players in the game. Other than that, players won’t have to spend a long time grinding for it in the game. This will drastically decrease the time required for players to earn 10 Synthweave tokens per class each season.
