“The bounties returning to Destiny 2 in Update 1.2.3 are a return to most of the properties of bounties in The Taken King. They will be obtained from a variety of vendors, they will generally award XP and faction reputation (though some will offer even better rewards), and can be redeemed “in the field” to immediately claim your rewards. In Forsaken, you may also see some bounties drop in the wild. There are two new mechanics. Bounties will expire if left uncompleted, and acquiring them will cost a small amount of Glimmer. We wanted to avoid the ‘grab every bounty you see until your inventory is packed and sort them out later’ experience without constraining players to the tiny inventory they found in previous iterations of the game.”
Meanwhile, Bungie has been pushing out new info on the upcoming expansion through GameStop’s promotional outlet, Game Informer; there’s a huge infodump on new supers and subclass branches, the Tangled Shore map, weaponry, and the Flashpoint milestone, all worth a peek if you’re eagerly anticipating Forsaken.
