Any Guardian worth their salt has struggled with the idea of what piece of loot to keep and what to blow up. Without fail, that weapon you thought was useless three months ago is now the standard meta in the Crucible, and you feel like an idiot for dismantling it. Sound familiar? Well, thanks to the new Collections feature in Destiny 2: Forsaken, you no longer have to worry about that.
Collections – Reacquire Your Gear
When you bring up your character screen in Destiny 2: Forsaken, you’ll notice the new Collections menu tab alongside the Triumphs tab. The Collections screen is precisely what its name implies; it keeps track of every single piece of gear you’ve acquired and stores it in your Collections. When you pick up a new gun or decrypt a new piece of armor, it will be recorded here, along with all its details, lore, perks, and more.
At any given time, you may choose to reacquire a piece of gear from your Collections. Depending on the type of item, you’ll have to pay with a combination of Glimmer, Legendary Shards, planetary materials, Gunsmith Materials, Silver, or Bright Dust. As long as you have the currency, you can buy the item and get a brand new, fresh in the box, piece of gear delivered into your inventory.
Gone are the days of stuffing your vault with junk for fear of it becoming valuable at some point in the future!
Collections – Track Your Gear
The new Collections system also serves a secondary purpose; tracking all of your gear. Inside the Collections system, all your gear is grouped into specific categories, such as the Exotics: Curse of Osiris and Warmind collection. Some of these collections will earn your Guardian a Badge when you’ve completed the group by finding each item in it. At this point, we’re unsure what purpose the Badges serve, aside from providing that great feeling that completionists have when they’ve collected everything there is to find.
The Collections screen is also a great place to keep track of recently acquired items, which can be very helpful when you’re blasting through new mission content and are drowning in new gear.
Now that you’ve got a handle on the new Collections system in Forsaken, why not brush up on all the other new features by visiting our Destiny 2 Guide Hub.
