Heh. (Gaming)

In Destiny, (correct me if I'm wrong, it's been a while) to unlock a specific gun/armor/whathaveyou you must complete a mission and hope you get the item you want. Which you probably won't. Then even if you do, it's unlikely to be the optimum version of what you want. Or, you can just directly purchase it.

You literally can’t directly purchase any piece of gear, save for the ornaments that are exclusive to Eververse. You can’t just go buy yourself a set of raid armor. Every gun or piece of armor has a prescribed way to get. We can debate all day about drop chance and RNG rolls, but there literally is no paying to bypass the activities to just buy the stuff you want.

I won’t sit here and pretend Bungie’s monetization is perfect, but if you’re willing to pay up front (I understand the hesitation to do so), it’s pretty fair on a yearly basis, assuming you just enjoy playing Destiny.
