To unlock the Superblack Shader in Destiny 2, you must first unlock both the Superblack Key Alpha and Superblack Key Omega which can be obtained from Lord Shaax and Arcite 99-40 in the Hall of Champions.

The Superblack Key Alpha can be earned from Lord Shaax. However, to unlock it, you have to first earn a total of 10,000 Hype. Hype can be earned by completing Onslaught waves, turning in Shaax’s Onslaught bounties, Arcite’s weekly, and completing Brave weapon quests.

  • Blast From The Past
  • Edgelord
  • Stranger Danger
  • Spin To Win
  • Patience and Forbearance
  • Bring Down The Hammer
  • Jury Duty

Unlocking The Superblack Shader

Once you’ve acquired both the Superblack Alpha and Superblack Omega keys, head to the Containment Center located in the Hall of Champions. Walk up to the black mass contained within the tub and interact with it. Once completed, you’ll then have acquired the Superblack Shader.

So there you have it, that’s how to unlock the Superblack Shader in Destiny 2. This is just one of the treats that Bungie has given fans leading up to The Final Shape in June.
