There is a seemingly endless conga-line of materials and treasures that you need to collect in Destiny 2. However, sometimes, it pays to remember the most crucial and basic of resources in the game. For Destiny 2, that’s Bright Dust. This basic resource is required for the merch store, so you can look as good as possible. Thankfully, you can’t spend a cent on this… But, you’ll need to gather up quite a bit if you want to look good. And you can also purchase useful items, like Scavenger’s Boon, too! So, let’s get farming.
How to Get Bright Dust in Destiny 2
Bright Dust in Destiny 2 is best farmed from completing Seasonal Challenges, Vender Challenges, Seasonal Bounties, and the Season Pass. In addition, you can farm Bright Engrams to get a large boost of Bright Dust, though these are rare. By far the most profitable farm is the Weekly Seasonal Bounties, so you should probably consider that before you do anything else.
Seasonal Bounties provide a large amount of Bright Dust for players willing to complete Strikes, Crucible matches, and Gambit playlists. If you do this on all three of your characters, you can grab 14,040 Bright Dust a week. That’s pretty stellar!
That’s not to say the other farming activities are bad. Weekly Seasonal bounties during holiday events are fantastic sources of Dust. The Solstice of Heroes is a great time to farm!
The Season Pass is also a great way to get some Dust, though payed players will be getting a lot more.
Bright Engrams might sound like a great source of Bright Dust, but they really aren’t. They can be, and you’ll be getting a handful of dust for gathering them… But, uh, they probably shouldn’t be your farming target. Your highest possible total from these will be 1,000. And that’s rare as heck!
There’s a lot to do in Destiny 2 while you’re farming Bright Dust! If you want to gather some weapons, you should look at the Stormchaser and Anarchy. If you’re interested in one of the tankiest builds that the game has seen, check out the seasonal artifact’s Classy Restoration Mod!
