My first piece of information on this topic came from the inventory item "Weapon parts" that you got from dismantling weapons.

Weapon parts - used to upgrade and repair weapons.

There is also the same descriptions for the three armour dismantled parts.

My second clue was that after a while, I noticed that my cloak (on my Warlock) had become tattered and soiled. I had sworn it was nice and crisp a few hours beforehand.

So my question is, does your equipment actually degrade? I haven't seen anything similar to durability, so is it only aesthetic?

  • The Destiny wikia has the same description, but it doesn't seem to be something you can do as of yet?

    The repair part might refer to the need to use those parts to "restore" exotic weapons to their former glory.

Currently there is no way to repair items and there doesn't seem to be any degrading factors in the game.

That being said, I have also noticed my armor visually degrading by getting scratched up and paint peeling slightly, though. That seems to be purely cosmetic based on its use/duration of ownership. It doesn't seem to affect stats in any way, and it probably won't until a repair system is implemented.

There might've been repair/durability stats in early development in the game and that description was just overlooked when the system was removed.

    I thought as much. However I must say I do like the cosmetic aspect of it.

  • I've never noticed this on my titan.. does logging out and back in restore the degradation? I feel like it would be noticeable by now since I've been wearing mostly the same legendaries for about a week now.

  • I never noticed this either. Meant to look today when I got on but then I found myself zoned out at the loot cave and forgot... I'll check tomorrow for sure.
