You'll get them in batches (3 or 5 at a time, from what I've seen so far) and you'll have to put them on individual pieces of equipment, which uses them up. Here, then, we'll be talking you through how exactly to get them, and sadly it might take a bit of time.

Taking on the now traditional loot box format with its Bright Engrams, you can get all manner of vanity goods, from armour skins to Sparrows, Ships, Ghost Shells and weapon mods that can tweak the perks that your armour convey on your combat ability.

Complete the Destiny 2 Campaign. Destiny players, already cynical about this pervasive system, have theorized that Bungie turned shaders into consumables so it'd be easier to sell them.

In Destiny 2, Bungie brings back shaders for weapons and armor. This guide will help you obtain the Sparrow, allowing you to travel quickly across the world of Destiny 2.

Head to the rebuilt Tower and speak with Amanda Holliday in the Hangar.

She'll have three fairly basic Sparrows for you to choose from, for free. As highlighted in a popular post on the game's subreddit and in a video by the critic Jim Sterling, Destiny 2 shaders can be purchased for real money. Now every time you fill the XP bar to the Max you will get a Single Bright Engram. At this point it's unclear whether there are plans to address the complaints at all, but given the growing number of voices against the feature, the Destiny 2 makers will be unable to ignore the calls for much longer. Through the use of silver, players can go to the Eververse Trading Company and trade some of it to buy a Bright Engram which may or may not have a shader inside. It means you can technically get them before compelting the story, but you'll need to do some grinding, and finger-crossing, to do so.

Finish the opening mission, Homecoming. The bottom line, at least from where we're sitting, is that the previous system has been butchered in order to bolster the appeal of Destiny 2's bright engram microtransactions. While Bright Engrams from Eververse will get you rare (blue) mods, players are likely to find better legendary mods in the game from Gunsmith after finishing Destiny 2, as one Redditor has found.
