Destiny 2: Forsaken is bringing a ton of changes when it launches this fall. One of the biggest changes is the new weapon system, which launches right before Forsaken. Because of the new weapon system, Bungie is reworking how infusion works in-game, throwing out the current system in favor of something simpler.
Destiny 2’s current infusion system allows players to infuse weapons of the same class into one another, so auto rifles can be infused into auto rifles, scout rifles into scout rifles, and so on. However, Bungie is getting rid of some of the restrictions for infusing weapons in the new weapon system. Players will now be able to infuse weapons of the same slot into one another, so auto rifles can be infused into any weapon type that shares the same weapon slot, making it easier to find infusion fuel for weapons.
The cost of infusion is going up to balance out the freedom that players get for infusion. While Bungie has not offered specifics, developers have stated that the cost of infusing a weapon will be based on what players are infusing. The cost of infusion will be cheapest if players are infusing duplicates of a weapon. The price for infusing year one weapons will likely be higher, according to Bungie’s comments earlier this year.
The new infusion system sounds like a good fit for the new systems Bungie is implementing in Forsaken. With all the new powerful gear that is coming in the expansion, it will be nice to infuse the gear straight away instead of hunting for a specific archetype of gun. Hopefully more quality of life changes like this will be coming when the expansion launches this fall.
Destiny 2: Forsaken launches September 4 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
