Destiny 2 Forsaken Expansion is scheduled to release this fall and with it, Bungie intends to right many wrongs but fixing the bug that prevents players from purchasing armor from various vendors isn’t one of the wrongs that Bungie will be fixing with Destiny 2 Forsaken expansion.
Bungie community manager, Cozmo, took it to Twitter and posted that the bug preventing players from purchasing armor will be fixed with update 1.2.3 which will roll out after the next faction rally. Suffice to say, this has many Destiny 2 fans disappointed.
Cozmo explained that the reason why the bug exists in the first place. According to him, when Bungie added the seasonal progression rewards it conflicted with the players’ ability to purchase armor from vendors.
Since then armor purchasing has been disabled by Bungie and now the studio has confirmed that this bug will be fixed with the upcoming Destiny 2 update 1.2.3.
We removed direct purchase of armor from certain vendors due to constraints when adding seasonal progression rewards. The fix came too late to add direct purchase of armor in 1.2.1. This issue will be addressed in the 1.2.3 update for both Iron Banner and Faction Rallies.

Speaking of the upcoming expansion, Bungie has noted that the focus of the Forsaken expansion are Destiny 2 fans.
Destiny 2 had a strong start but following the launch, Bungie made some decisions that put off many of its dedicated players and with the upcoming expansion, Bungie intends to right many of its wrong and win back the trust of its fans and player base.
Not only that, Bungie has also confirmed exotic armor changes. According to Bungie, nine of its exotics will receive changes. These exotics include:
- Hunter: Lucky Raspberry
- Hunter: St0mp-EE5
- Hunter: Young Ahamkara’s Spine
- Titan: ACD/0 Feedback Fence
- Titan: Doom Fang Pauldron
- Titan: Dunemarchers
- Warlock: Crown of Tempests
- Warlock: Karnstein Armlets
- Warlock: Starfire Protocol
The changes made to these exotics will give players a certain degree of control over some aspects of these exotic armors.
Destiny 2 is a first-person action shooter developed by Bungie for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
