Destiny 2: Beyond Light Will Have A New Kiosk For Buying Vaulted Exotics
It'll cost you, but at least you'll be able to earn old Exotic Gear without having to jump through hoops.
When Destiny 2's new expansion launches on November 10, it'll be adding and removing content in an effort to reduce the game's overall size. Several destinations will be removed and placed in the Destiny Vault, including Io, Titan, Mercury, and Mars.
The Exotic rewards attached to those destinations won't completely disappear from Destiny 2, however, as developer Bungie revealed in its weekly update that players will still be able to obtain that gear for a hefty price. Two new Kiosks will be added to the tower on November 10.
The Quest Archive will be found next to the Postmaster and will allow players to access any previously discarded missions. Veteran players can also try out the New Light Quest tutorial quest.
The Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive will be found next to the vaults. Various Exotics and Legendary Pinnacle/Pursuit weapons that were once available through now-retired quests can be obtained here, but they'll have a hefty price attached to them to reflect the effort that players went through to originally obtain them.
The Glimmer currency, destination materials, masterworking materials, and an Exotic Cipher or Ascendant Shard will be needed to purchase this Exotic or Legendary gear.
Exotic Ciphers were a particularly rare resource in Destiny 2 previously, as players could only earn one per season through the Season Pass. Xur, the Exotic gear arms dealer who arrives every weekend, will start offering Exotic Ciphers as a reward for completing a quest. For those weapons that were only obtainable through Raids, players will need to save up an additional new currency called Spoils of Conquest which can be earned after successfully completing a Raid.
