Bright Dust is a currency used to buy applicable items from the Eververse store and previously, the Tribute Hall. They used to be occasionally rewarded from Seasonal Engrams, however instead can now occasionally be rewarded from Eververse Engrams. Bright Dust is primarily earned from weekly and additional bounties from certain vendors, such as Zavala, Lord Shaxx and The Drifter. If there is a seasonal event ongoing, and Eva Levante is present, she may offer weekly and additional bounties related to the event that reward Bright Dust upon their completion.
Completing eight bounties per week with Zavala, Lord Shaxx or The Drifter will award 120 Bright Dust per vendor. Additional bounties from these vendors also award 10 Bright Dust each, at a cost of 3000 Glimmer, but are infinitely repeatable.
Because bounties are per character, a soft cap of 1,800 (3,000 if Eva is present, whose weekly bounties provide double the normal) Bright Dust can be earned weekly, as 100 is rewarded per weekly bounty, with 6 (8 if Eva is present) weekly bounties available per character. Additional Bright Dust can be earned through the previously mentioned additional bounties.
With the launch of Beyond Light and the simultaneous launch of Season of the Hunt, the base amount of Bright Dust earnable from the weekly bounties was halved to 100. Though 10,500 was added to the season pass, it has been calculated to be a net loss of earnable Bright Dust by 15,600 to 17,400, or just over 31% less Bright Dust per season.
