Destiny 2 Glimmer Guide, How to Earn Glimmer

It’s the most generally accepted currency in the game but not all uses of this are very effective so it’s important to know where to spend this currency. Now, there are two ways you can spend this currency.

  1. Before 200 Power and level 20 – Get items from vendors. Each vendor sells gear up to a cap of 200 Power. Most of the gear will be above your level but since you have so much Glimmer, get the best stuff from each vendor.
  2. After 200 Power and level 20 – Get random weapon mods from the gunsmith. After this Power level, you can no longer buy higher level gears from vendors but Glimmer can help you raise your Power Level. Hit 280 Power and you will be able to turn blue weapon mods into the Legendary purple ones and these add +5 power to the weapons or armour you add them on.

It costs 5,000 Glimmer to install one Legendary mod but since Glimmer is so abundant, you might as well should spend it. Don’t ever let the Glimmer cap reach full. Keep spending them as they come.
