Best Gold Shaders in Destiny 2

Spread awareness for a good cause.

There's a trend sweeping through the Destiny 2 community during the month of September. A father made a post in "The Dad Gaming - Dadstiny" Facebook group where he shared that his daughter had passed away in 2020 from Ewings Sarcoma. In an effort to raise awareness for childhood cancers, whose awareness color is gold, it was asked that all Guardians who see the message deck their gear out in the color. With that in mind, here are some of the best gold shaders and where to find them.

  1. Several of those aren’t exactly gold and you forgot “Midnight Talons” which on lock has a lot of gold.

    1. I was tempted to add in Midnight Talons, but the primary color isn’t gold. It’s still a solid shader though.
