Transmat Effects are a type of cosmetic item in Destiny 2. They are special visual effects that are displayed when a player’s character is being transported, or “transmatting,” from one location to another in the game world. They are clearly visible at the start of multiplayer events where all players will drop down into the area before the event starts.
Transmat Effects change the appearance of the transmatting animation and can be equipped in the appearance slot of a player’s character. They come in a variety of themes, such as seasonal or event-specific effects, and provide a unique visual experience when the player is transmatting.
Like many cosmetic items in Destiny 2, Transmat Effects do not provide any gameplay benefits. However, they are a popular cosmetic item among players due to their unique appearance and the ability to personalize the transmatting experience.
