In Destiny 2, Bright Dust is a currency used to purchase cosmetic items such as ornaments, ships, sparrows, Ghosts, and more from the Eververse store.
Bright Dust is one of the currencies used in Destiny 2, and it’s the only one that allows players to buy various cosmetics that appear in the Eververse store. Through each week of every season and special events, Destiny 2 is filled with numerous cosmetic items that are purely for the enjoyment of whoever uses them. These come in many forms, such as weapon and armor ornaments, emotes, ships, and much more.
Unlike other materials in Destiny 2 such as Legendary Shards, Bright Dust has a limited number of resources that twindle over time. Dismantling weapons and armor won’t award players with any Bright Dust, nor will completing any of the playlist activities. Instead, players will need to specifically target certain objectives in order to earn more of the Eververse currency, especially if they want to buy some of the upcoming cosmetic items that will be featured in the 2022 Guardian Games at the end of Season 16.

By far the easiest way to get more Bright Dust is by completing the Season of the Risen pass as quickly as possible. There are several rewards throughout the pass that earn players even as much as 2000 Bright Dust, which can cover the cost of some of the more expensive items like new ships and sparrows. Many Season of the Risen challenges in Destiny 2 also rewards Bright Dust upon their completion, though the amount remains unlisted. Fortunately, the amount of Bright Dust earned for certain challenges corresponds with the amount of Challenger XP awarded. Players who complete a seasonal challenge that rewards them with Challenger XP+ and Bright Dust can expect to earn 75 of the currency. Challenger XP++ and XP+++ reward 150 and 300 Bright Dust, respectively.
Destiny 2: How To Earn More Bright Dust (The Fast Way)
Other than challenges, players can potentially earn more Bright Dust in Destiny 2 by reaching every fifth level past 100 in the season pass. While Bright Dust isn’t technically guaranteed, the Eververse engrams that are rewarded at these levels have a chance to give players varying amounts of Bright Dust, if not other cosmetic items or sparrows. As more challenges in Season of the Risen are completed, players will earn bonuses to the amount of XP given for completing challenges, making it easier to level up at the end of the season pass.
The Drifter, Zavala, and Shaxx all have additional bounties that reward a small amount of Bright Dust for completing them each day. This can quickly stack up in Destiny 2 if completed daily on every character, though it may take a while as each bounty must be completed in a playlist activity. Lastly, holiday events like the Guardian Games also incorporate bounties to earn more Bright Dust in Destiny 2 as well.
