In other news, Bungie has confirmed even more features coming in update 1.1.2 and one of them is exceptionally important for those who keep accidentally deleting their weapons. “One recurring story we keep seeing involves Legendary and Exotic gear getting accidentally dismantled by errant pets and over enthusiastic children,” says UI engineer Daniel Hanson on Bungie’s site (opens in new tab). “We decided to empower players to protect their precious gear with Item Locking”
Locking means nothing can be dismantled and it’s just a matter of highlighting an item and clicking down with the right thumb stick. This will then be safe from any of these ‘errant pets’ until you unlock it again in the same manner.
Also in the update will be the ability to show off your fabulous headgear while back at the Tower. You’ll be able to toggle whether you want to be running around wearing your helmet on or off in the Settings menu.
