Ever been playing Destiny and had to travel all the way back to the Tower to switch from one precious piece of gear to another? Be it because you’re swapping characters or because you just need something different, the Vault was a handy place to store your items that was also tediously time-consuming to manage. Now, via the Destiny Companion app, Bungie has introduced the ability for players to swap things between the Vault and their inventory no matter where they are.
Revealed in the latest Weekly Update, the latest update will allow players to transfer items to and from their Vault using Bungie.net or the Companion App. Transferring items is as easy as a few clicks, as you can see in the below GIFs.
“Android phone, or iOS device, go to an item in your inventory and bring up the item detail screen,” Destiny‘s Engineering Lead Chris Gossett explained. “There are two options available (Equip and Move to Vault).”
“Hit Move to Vault to transfer an item to your vault. Conversely, when viewing an item in your Vault there’s a button that says Take from Vault. Doing so will move the item to the character currently in focus on the app. If you’re transferring an item that has a quantity (like materials) you’ll get a prompt that asks “How many?” If you just need a couple, there’s no need to take the whole stack. Just get what you need.“
Bungie’s Senior Designer Leif Johansen also detailed some changes coming to the Inferno Crucible game modes:
No Tracker: Players have no “radar” in the top left corner of their HUD. Super Good Advice: Please, please check your corners, Guardians.
Simplified Scoring: We’ve removed as many scoring events as possible. The mode is much more about getting kills and playing the core objective.
Fast objective capture: Without the Tracker, players are much more vulnerable when interacting with objectives because it gives away their position. Speeding up capture time keeps the risk/reward for trying to capture an objective more fair.
Less Heavy Ammo: There’s only one set of Heavy crates per match and dead players don’t drop purple bricks. With no Tracker, it’s much easier to flank an aggressive opponent that’s pushing for kills because they have Heavy. Expect players to play more conservatively with Heavy ammo to try and get more bang for buck out of it.
Bungie’s last few Destiny updates have been pretty fantastic as far as user-friendly content goes. I expect as House of Wolves gets closer, they’ll keep them coming.
