Do you want to obtain Ascendant Alloy in Destiny 2? Before you get it, it is important for you to note that Ascendant Alloy is relatively rare. As explained on the Polygon site, you will only get a handful in your first 10 to 20 hours of the game.
The Reason Why You Need Ascendant Alloy
Why do we have to find Ascendant Alloy? This question may come to your mind when you are looking for Ascendant Alloy in Destiny 2. As explained on Polygon, Ascendant Alloy can be used to craft Exotic weapons such as the Osteo Striga Catalyst, Osteo Striga, or Enhanced Traits (perks) for your Shaped weapons.
It is also explained on the Polygon that Enhanced perks are the real draw because you will be able to noodle around with your favorite guns and make them more powerful than normal versions of the similar weapon. If you want to unlock or swap to a new Enhanced perk, a single Ascendant Alloy will be needed by you.
There is also a possibility that other Exotic weapons or raid weapons could need Ascendant Alloy in the future. So, it is worth stockpiling them.
