Bungie has outlined plans to shake up the way Destiny 2 players obtain Enhancement Cores in a move that should make the infusion process more accessible.
Infusion is the process of using an item to power up another item. For example, you might burn a gun that’s a higher level than the gun you’d like to use, to make the gun you’d like to use the same level as the gun you’re burning.
Enter Enhancement Cores, which must be spent as part of the infusion process. Pretty much all Destiny 2 players agree Enhancement Cores are too scarce in the game’s economy, limiting the amount of infusing you can do. And the system doesn’t play well with the way Destiny 2’s character progression works out in the field, either. You might find a weapon one or two levels above the weapon you want to use, burn three Enhancement Cores to infuse it, then soon after find a weapon one or two levels above the weapon you want to use again. You’ve just wasted three Enhancement Cores!
