What you need to know

  • Destiny 2 is a popular first-person shooter from Bungie.
  • The game will be upgraded for Xbox Series X.
  • A future update will allow you to make armor into Universal Ornaments.
  • You can purchase Destiny 2: Shadowkeep for $35 on the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).

Universal Ornaments are highly prized in Destiny 2 and it looks like you'll be able to make your own soon. Recently, Bungie revealed that "Transmogrification" was coming to the game in a future update, possibly in Year 4.

The developer said the following.

We will be adding a Transmogrification feature to Destiny 2. This will allow players to turn their Armor into Universal Ornaments. We plan to allow players to do this with in-game effort or Silver. This feature is in early development and is expected sometime during Year 4. Each Season we will deliver an aspirational pursuit for armor. We haven't done this consistently in Destiny 2. This armor will come from activities, not the Season Pass nor Eververse. As an example: We removed the Eververse Armor from Season 11 and itemized it into an aspirational activity because this is the right thing to do for the game.

Hopefully, the cost to make armor into Universal Ornaments won't be that great. It'll be nice to change the appearance of Exotics too, instead of being limited to only a few options. Many Exotics have no variations and no way to change them even now.

What do you want your armor to look like? I want my Recovery and Intellect armor to look like the Exile armor you get from Trials of Osiris.

  • I'm fairly new to Destiny 2, what are universal ornaments? Are they like the cosmetic attachments from Warframe?
  • Yes, and they could either only be bought for Silver through microtransactions or possibly earned years later thought random Bright Engram drops. Now it seems like you can make your own.
