A lot of changes are coming with the Beyond Light expansion to Destiny 2 that’ll make your Guardian look cooler. Bungie already outlined how transmogrification will allow you to change the look of any piece of armor when its next expansion drops. Now it turns out that you’ll soon be able to customize your Ghost sidekick to make it more useful as you play, and give you a chance to show off a little more.
In its This Week at Bungie blog post, the developer outlined alterations it’s making to Ghost shells, the customizable looks you can add to your robotic Ghost pal. Right now, Ghost shells are largely cosmetic, and while you can earn some through different gameplay activities, most are purchased through the premium currency Eververse store. Shells offer a bunch of different looks for your Ghost and often have themes–there are some for the Festival of the Lost Halloween event, for instance, while others align with the story underpinnings of certain seasons, or just have cool animations and styles.
Each Ghost shell currently comes with a set of random perks that make using certain shells useful in specific situations. A Ghost shell might give you boosts to Glimmer or resource gains on a specific planet, make your Sparrow load faster, or give you extra experience boosts. Since perks are random, you’ll often find yourself switching Ghosts for different activities, which might saddle you with a shell you don’t particularly like to get the perks you need. Bungie is changing that in Beyond Light so that Ghost shells become more customizable, provided you’re willing to put in a little work.
