Find it hard to scrounge for Weapon Parts in Destiny? If you are, Bungie has heard your plight! On the Bungie Weekly Update, the developer confirmed that Destiny Weapon Parts — which are used primarily to upgrade gear –can be bought by Glimmer from the gunsmith in the Tower, Banshee-44 and will be available once the November update kicks in.

We know! We’ve read a lot of feedback about the abject poverty that was induced when we adjusted their drop rate. My Boss says things are getting dire for him! He’s down to only 1,656 of them, so we need to act fast. As part of the November update, we’re authorizing Banshee-44 as your Weapon Parts dealer. He’ll accept Glimmer as a form of payment.
Additionally, Bungie has confirmed that the Destiny in-game economy will see some “welcome changes” when the studio rolls out its December update. Bungie also mentions that seeing as they are the “curators” of Destiny’s social world, they deserve the right to tinker with the Destiny economy.
In all sincerity, as the curators of your living social world, we reserve the right to tinker with the economy. We also reserve the right to change our minds again once we’ve had a chance to read the forum. Thanks for giving enough of a damn to tell us what’s up.
On that note, you’ll see yet more welcome changes to the in-game economy in the December update. Rumor has it that Petra will have use for your Etheric Light, and Eris has been asking if anyone out there is hoarding a surplus of Worm Spore. Turns out she loves the stuff.
 Let’s hope that whatever changes Bungie makes to Destiny’s economy, it’ll be a good one and won’t require us to pony up some real world cash.
