Bungie Reveals Destiny 2 Faction Rally Details: How They Work and When They Start

Destiny 2's Faction leaders have been gone for some time now, but they're back and they bring with them some sweet looking armor and powerful weapons.

Ever since the destruction of the Tower, Destiny 2 players have been wondering how they were going to be able to show their support for factions and unlock those sweet sweet shaders. On September 26, however, the factions – New Monarchy, Dead Orbit, and Future War Cult – will return with tokens, faction packages, and powerful weapons.

Beginning on Tuesday, September 26 after the weekly reset, the three original factions, and their representatives, will return. After pledging your allegiance to one of the factions, you will be tasked to “gather supplies for [your] faction and destroy enemy resources.” This can be completed through all of the game’s activities including Lost Sectors, Public Events, Strikes, the Nightfall, or the Raid.

Once you’ve amassed some tokens you’ll be able to turn them in – similar to other reputation vendors – in exchange for engrams that include faction-specific armor sets, weapons, and of course, shaders. In addition to this, each faction has a specific “powerful weapon” that will be rewarded based on the faction that wins the rally. The winning faction will sell its weapon to those who’ve pledged to them for 1,000 glimmer, and to everyone else for 50,000. The event concludes on October 3 at 10 AM PST.

Destiny 2 is currently available on PS4 and Xbox One, and will be coming later in October to the PC. You can check out our review of the game and see what we thought about it here, or read up on what Xür is selling to be sure you don’t miss it.
