If you’re a Destiny 2 player who likes to take pride in their Guardian’s appearance, the plethora of shaders available in Bungie’s FPS is a godsend. No matter which class you’re playing as, what element subclass you main, the mood you’re in, or anything else, a Destiny 2 shader usually fits.

However, every now and then, there’s a shader that applies to all – something that looks good on everything, no matter the situation. And, even more infrequently, a shader like that is free for Destiny 2 players to pick up. Do you see where we’re going with this? That’s right; Amazon Prime Gaming is rewarding Destiny 2 players with a slick new shader – and it’s an exclusive new one, too.

Yep, you’re reading that right. If you’re an active Amazon Prime member or someone with a Twitch Prime subscription, you can go to the Destiny 2 Amazon Prime Gaming page right now and pick up the Spring Showers Exotic Bundle for free.

Available until May 9, this bundle includes the Spring Showers Emote, the Arrow of Time Exotic ship cosmetic, the Grey Tiger Shell for your Ghost, and the Velvet Intention shader. This is a brand-new cosmetic and a timed exclusive to Prime – something we’ve never seen before.

From what we can tell, the Velvet Intention shader you can pick up with this new Amazon Prime Gaming bundle for Destiny 2 gives your Guardian’s armor a brushed gold effect with red and purple accents. It’s also going to make any armor glow effects red or gold. So… It’s definitely adding a touch of class to your loadout – and we certainly think there are some armor pieces out there that would look incredible with this shader.

If you want to see it in action before you go through the effort to claim it, here’s a little video:

If you’re someone who doesn’t actually have Amazon Prime yet, we have a little deal for you below – so, you can get your hands on this without the cost.

We know Lightfall was a little, how should we phrase this, disappointing to some of you, but things are looking up for Destiny 2. Not only is Destiny 2 getting Exotic armor focusing, there are also more changes and quality of life updates on the way.

So, while we wait for those, you can check out our recommendations for the best Destiny 2 Titan build, the best Destiny 2 Warlock build, and the best Destiny 2 Hunter build right here.
