Bungie will be reworking another Destiny 2 vendor soon and this time it will be everyone's favourite baldy that is guilty of excessive indeeding.
Commander Zavala is one of the most beloved characters in Destiny 2 and it's in no small part thanks to his voice actor, Lance Reddick. Thankfully, the changes Bungie is planning for the leader of the Vanguard do not include a bullet hole in the head or something along those lines. The changes will bring him more in line with Shaxx, who previously changed the way he dishes out weapons and gear to PvP-happy Guardians.
Season 15 will begin on August 24, 2021, and it's at this point that Zavala's mechanics will change. Vanguard tokens will become deprecated and you will have rewards at certain Vanguard ranks to bump your loadout, Power level or Legendary Shard count. Therefore, you should spend your Vanguard tokens before this date as you will only get a handful of Glimmer for them once the change kicks in.
Those with thousands of tokens will see the worst of it as they will probably spend a lot of time turning them in and dismantling all the useless stuff they get in return. On the flip side, Season 15 should feel better when ranking up Vanguard and you don't have to bother with repeatedly clicking on the button to deposit the tokens anymore.
