When They Start, How They Work, And Gear Rewards


Not now. Destiny 2 is undergoing another round of scheduled maintenance, which is currently planned to last until 3 PM ET/12 PM PT.

In addition to all of the gear on display above, each faction will be offering a special weapon as a reward to be sold if they emerge victorious.

"Each of the factions of the Tower is having a rally to collect resources for its cause", Senior Designer Tim Williams explained. Once you pledge allegiance, you simply play the game and earn Faction Tokens for the one your chose. The faction whose Guardians collect the most faction packages will be declared the victor. All three factions return from the original Destiny-Dead Orbit (represented by Arach Jalaal), Future War Cult (Lakshmi-2), and New Monarchy (Executor Hideo)-to task players with "gather [ing] supplies for their faction and destroy [ing] enemy resources". There looks to be quite a lot of gear for each faction. There's a whole new injection of content coming with this update, so you'll definitely want to start deciding who you want to pledge your loyalty to going forward. Anyone who did not pledge can still get it, but will have to pay a higher price of 50,000 glimmer.

The early days of a massive online game such as Destiny 2 are fraught with technical challenges that need to be overcome quickly and as smoothly as possible.

Players will want to know the best Faction to back in Destiny 2, but there won't be one. Make your choice wisely though, because once you've chosen a faction for a character, that's it. Members of the winning faction will be able to purchase it for only 1,000 glimmer.
