'Destiny 2' players are furious that shaders can only be used once

It has to do with something called "shaders".

The post-release update to this article is that Bungie has changed things so that players will not receive engrams until level 20; they can't even buy Bright Engrams, Destiny 2's loot boxes, until then.

"Shaders are earned through gameplay: leveling, chests, engrams, vendors", he explained over a series of tweets. Below is exactly what you need to do to get one, step by step. Now, shaders are consumables that disappear on use.

The worst part about all this is that there was no mention of this change whatsoever in the weeks leading up to Destiny 2's launch. The majority of the forum-posting Destiny fan base, however, seems to be very unhappy with the change.

In Destiny, one of the possible cosmetic items players could receive obtain was a shader which could be applied to a set of armor to change its color scheme and pattern.

If you don't like your ride, you can find new and shiny Sparrows inside Bright Engrams, which can be earned in-game or purchased via microtransaction. For whatever reason, Bungie decided to make shaders work on only one piece of armor at a time, which means players would have needed to get four copies of the same shader if they wanted their entire outfit to match. In essence it takes the Chroma system of cosmetics that was introduced for some armour in the original Destiny after Rise of Iron and spins it out across the whole game with microtransactions.

Destiny 2 has faced some controversy recently by the fans for the limited use allowed by Shaders.

The top-voted thread on the subject - titled, "Do not spend a SINGLE CENT on micro transactions until shaders become unlimited use" - makes it clear what the problem is: "Shaders being one time use is a deliberate decision to make an aspect of the game worse for the sake of profit". The Sparrow is one of the most used vehicles in the game. A quick scan of social media and sites like Reddit shows that the majority of players are enjoying the game and consider it a marked improvement over the original.
