Can You Still Earn And Spend Simulation Seeds In Destiny 2 Beyond Light?


The complete lowdown on Simulation Seeds in Destiny 2: Beyond Light.


Destiny 2 is undergoing a lot of changes right now. The Beyond Light expansion finally landed in our laps only a couple of weeks ago, taking a lot of the original game’s content out. Much of what Destiny 2 players have enjoyed over the last few years has either been outright removed or transformed, and that has had massive repercussions for the rest of the game. One of those repercussions regards currency. Namely, some players have a lot of currency earned from locations where they can no longer spend it, and new players can no longer earn that currency to buy items.

Simulation Seeds are the big problem right now in Destiny 2. Simulation Seeds are a currency that was exclusive to Mercury, and Mercury is one of the locations that has been removed and vaulted by Bungie, meaning you can no longer visit and farm for Simulation Seeds. So, is there a solution? Can players with too many Simulation Seeds spend what they have, and can players who need more still earn them somehow? We have all of the answers below, so keep reading for everything you need to know about Simulation Seeds in Beyond Light.

Can I Still Earn Simulation Seeds In Destiny 2 Beyond Light?

As we’ve already said, Simulation Seeds were a currency that was exclusive to Mercury, and with Mercury no longer available, you can’t visit and easily earn the local currency. That means that I’m sorry, there is no easy way to earn Simulation Seeds right now.

That’s not to say it’s impossible, though. Spider is an NPC you can talk to at Thieves’ Landing at the Tangled Shore, and he has been known to sell Simulation Seeds in the past. If you’re lucky, you may be able to trade with Spider to get a few extra Simulation Seeds, if you’re looking to earn just a few more. But as has been mentioned, this isn’t a guarantee, meaning if you do manage to earn some Simulation Seeds through this method, it won’t be efficient to get you many.


Can I Still Spend Simulation Sees In Destiny 2 Beyond Light?

You can actually still spend your remaining Simulation Seeds if you have managed to accidentally accrue far too many during your time playing Destiny 2. Both Spider, at Thieves’ Landing, and Banshee-44 in the Tower (the Exo Gunsmith) may still accept Simulation Seeds as currency for select items. This might be a bit disappointing if you just logged in and don’t have any Simulation Seeds to spend, but this is primarily for the long-time players of Destiny 2 who wish to spend their Simulation Seeds before they become entirely useless.

Sorry new Destiny 2 gamers, these gadgets are pretty much entirely out of your attain. Conversely, in case you’ve been a player for years, make sure to shed those Simulation Seeds while you still can, as there might not be anything to spend them on sooner or later.
