Bungie has announced that in the next season of Destiny 2, players will get an increase in their vault space.
As indicated in the last post TWAB, Bungie said it will increase the size of players’ vaults by 100 spaces, bringing the grand total to 600 items. This is Destiny 2’s first player-vault-sized expansion in almost four yearssince the last time he received a boost was in Destiny 2’s Forsaken expansion.
The Vault space, which has been considered a prized possession by the most invested Destiny 2 players, has been a frequent source of tension for the community since its last upgrade. It’s not just years since player vault spaces were increased to 500 slots; Countless seasons and three expansions full of armor and weapons have come to the game since then, meaning the vault space is long overdue. For a game all about collecting rare and valuable loot, the lack of vault size updates started to feel unfriendly to many long-term players, and countless scoffed at the situation, some content creators going so far as to make videos of what they clean up or roast other vaults.
This issue came to a particular climax at the start of Destiny 2’s latest expansion, The Witch Queen, which introduced weapon crafting. However, crafting weapons required keeping different versions of weapons in order to use them and mine materials before players could drop them. This meant that even the most spacious chests began to lose real estate to equipment players didn’t need, and players whose space was already shrinking had nothing to do but dodge. ‘accept that they should remove things they had been holding on to.
With the streamlining of crafting in Destiny 2’s upcoming, and currently still unknown, season coming next week, as well as the introduction of more vault space, it seems Bungie has listened to what its audience has been asking for. Countless content creators and gamers have gone online to say how happy they are to finally receive a meaningful update to their vaults.
