Destiny 2

Bungie will release character customization before Destiny’s The Final Shape

In the first “This Week in Destiny” blog post of 2024, Bungie revealed that, in an upcoming update before the release of “The Final Shape,” Destiny will be introducing character customization.

This feature allows you to modify your Guardian’s appearance at any time, and the best part is – it’s absolutely free, with no limitations on the number of changes you can make. While you can tweak body type, face, hair/head, and markings, keep in mind that transitioning between different origins (Human, Exo, or Awoken) won’t be possible.


Let’s see if this sounds familiar: You created a very edgy Awoken when you were a teenager. Maybe you chose some regrettable markings on your Human’s face, or you didn’t coordinate the colors of your Exo’s mouth and eyes. Or perhaps your character’s body type no longer represents who you are.

No matter the reason, you’ll be able to change your Guardian’s look when character customization goes live in an update before the release of The Final Shape. To do so, you’ll only need to launch Destiny 2 and you’ll notice a new option when you hover over a character at the character selection screen.


You will be able to modify the appearance of your Guardians anytime, without cost or limit to the number of changes. Just take into consideration that while you can change the body type, face, hair/head, and markings, it won’t be possible to change from one origin to another (i.e., Human, Exo, or Awoken).

In a March update, we’ll be resetting the Synthweave bounty cap to give everyone even more opportunities to customize their look when this feature goes live. We hope being able to customize your characters freely will help you refine—or redefine—your beloved Guardians for years to come.

In addition to this new feature, Bungie has announced an increase of Glimmer you can carry. Starting with Update 7.3.4 on January 30, players will be able to carry up to 500,000 Glimmer.
