Destiny 2 Faction Rally event: Here’s what you need to know

Destiny 2‘s first Faction Rally event kicks off tomorrow, and we’ve got all its details for you right here.

The event will allow Guardians the chance to pledge allegiance to one of Destiny’s three factions: Dead Orbit, Future War Cult or New Monarchy. Guardians then have a week to support their faction by completing public events (actual Public Events, the Crucible, Strikes, the Raid, Lost Sectors) and earning XP through faction tokens.

Just like with normal Tower vendors, Guardians will have to cash those faction tokens in. At the end of the week, the faction with the highest amount of XP will offer its members a shiny new weapon for only 1,000 Glimmer. The factions that lose the event will still be selling special weapons, but they’ll cost 50,000 Glimmer. Talk about a discount, eh?

Here’s an explanation of each faction, alongside the weapon they’ll be offering.



Dead Orbit

Led by Arach Jalaal (above left), Dead Orbit has all but given up on the Traveler. Believing that Earth is essentially dead, Dead Orbit believes in survival before all else. They invest in finding Golden Age technology scattered around the system in an effort to abandon Earth and find a new homeworld.

  • Shader colours: Black, silver, white
  • Special weapon: Scout rifle (perhaps Call to Arms)

Other loot drops from faction engrams are below:


Future War Cult

Lead by Lakshmi-2 (above middle), The Future War Cult believes that war is inevitable, and even more war is necessary to prepare for, um, other wars. They like fighting, alright?

  • Shader colours: Yellow, orange, blue
  • Special weapon: Pulse rifle

Other loot drops from faction engrams are below:


New Monarchy

Lead by Executor Hideo (above right), New Monarchy believes that a single leadership group can bring Earth back to the Golden Age. It works with the Vanguard to find said leadership, repeating its manta: “Together we will rise.”

  • Shader colours: Silver, Grey, yellow, maroon
  • Special weapon: Sidearm

Other loot drops from faction engrams are below:


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. Everyone who pledged to the winning faction will be able to purchase it for 1,000 glimmer. Anyone who did not pledge can still get it, but will have to pay a higher price of 50,000 glimmer.
Here’s what is up for grabs during this event.
Dead Orbit Scout Rifle
Future War Cult Pulse Rifle
New Monarchy Sidearm 
You can earn faction Tokens to turn into your faction of choice all the way up until 2 AM Pacific on October 3. Bungie will declare a winner later that day at 10 AM Pacific. Good luck Guardians, and may the best faction win!

Which faction are you pledging loyalty to? If you’ve got three Guardians, it’s recommended to pledge one to each faction in order to ensure cheap weaponry.

Faction Rally starts at 7.00 pm AEST (2.00 am PT) tomorrow, 26 September.

Destiny 2 is available on Xbox One and PS4. It heads to Windows PC in October. Check out our ever growing Destiny 2 guide, for more tips and guides of Destiny 2.
