How to Get and Use Chroma in Destiny

by Prima Games Staff

This guide will tell you how to get Chroma and use it to modify your Guardian in Destiny. The latest Destiny update included several things, but perhaps the most noteworthy feature added to the game is Chroma, which allows for the modification in appearance for both Weapons and Armor. However, the catch is that it can only be used for new items introduced in the game, instead of ones previously available to your Guardian.

Getting Chroma

There are two different ways to get your hands on some Chroma. The first is by checking out the Sterling Treasure that automatically comes with the April update, which you can get through a variety of in-game events, as well as picking it up from Tess Everis at the Tower.

The second comes from taking current Armor that already has Chroma compatibility, including the Spektar gear earned through Sterling Treasure. Keep in mind that it’ll take you a good amount of time to get a full set of Chroma compatible gear with the same color, unless you’re willing to drop a few bucks in microtransactions.

Using Chroma in Destiny

Let’s say you manage to get a full set of Spektar Armor in the game, along with all the Chroma that comes with it. If that’s the case, you’ll want to use this to modify your character’s Armor and Weapons.

To do this, you’ll want to check out the screen where you can infuse it. This is a necessary step in the process but easy to complete. First, check out your Armor details in the sub-menu, where you’ll see a color associated with it next to Infusion. This can be one of four different colors: White, Yellow, Red or Blue. It helps to have the same color across all your different Armor pieces so your set appears complete. Feel free to roll any pieces that don’t match up to get better results. Once that’s done, all you need to do is apply the Chroma, available in your inventory and easy to infuse.

Be sure to check out which Chroma you’re using, which appears right below the icon, with an option to change its color at the cost of 100 Glimmer. If you have Chroma on hand, the current color of your Armor will be finished. If not, spend the 100 Glimmer with each roll and you’ll be able to do this. It should only take a couple of rolls to get the color you want.

Once it’s done, you can repeat the process for each piece of gear in your inventory until it’s the color you want it to be. By dismantling a current piece of Chroma gear, Armor or Weapon, you’ll get another back that’s a different color, so you won’t be left empty-handed.
