The primary of those to be launched to the sport will likely be weapon enhancing, which is able to drop “a number of weeks” after the Lightfall Grasp raid and will likely be obtainable just for a choose few weapons–initially solely Adept weapons acquired in Lightfall’s Grasp raid will likely be obtainable for enhancing.
The method will permit Adept weapons to be upgraded with enhanced traits, a stage, and a memento socket, with the enhancement working on a three-tiered system as detailed under:

A brand new mod will likely be added that may stage up a crafted or enhanced weapon utilizing commonplace currencies. “Whereas this won’t be initially positioned as the one technique for leveling up a weapon, it might be a handy technique for unlocking early perk selections and an outlet for any spare currencies you might have stockpiled,” the put up explains. Gamers will nonetheless be capable to stage up weapons the identical method they do now.
Together with these new options, Bungie may even be eradicating some outdated ones, together with Deepsight Attunement targets, resonant parts, and Resonant and Harmonic alloys.
