This week at Bungie, we watched Guardians become Legends
In the coming weeks, the team will dive into what’s changing about Faction Rallies and shed a bit more light on what Crucible Labs will bring to the table. This week’s focus is on feedback…
Feedback never stops. From the moment Warmind landed, the team has had their eyes on the chatter surrounding all aspects of Destiny 2. One trending topic is how players reach appropriate Power levels for endgame content. Head over here, where Senior Investment Designer, Daniel Auchenpaugh shares some details on what to expect moving forward.
Going for Glory
Progression isn’t just achieving new levels of Power, the team also looks at how players are rising through ranks of Valor and Glory. They have gotten some questions on the hows and whys of the ranking system. Head over here, where PvP Design Lead Derek Carroll has some answers.
Lord Saladin returns—with updated rewards!
BEGINS: Wednesday, May 23 (ANZ)
ENDS: Wednesday, May 30 (ANZ)
The game is Control!
The ways in which players earn rewards have also been updated for Season 3. Saladin will feature a similar reputation system to Vanguard, where players can climb the ranks by turning in Iron Banner Tokens. Each reputation rank up will lend progress to unlocking desired rewards.
New Ornaments have also been added, each with specific objectives for players to complete in the Iron Banner playlist when available.
At Your Fingertips
Destiny 2 isn’t the only thing that’s evolving over the course of the Roadmap. The Bungie.net team is also making plans to improve the experience on the website and Destiny Companion App. Head over here, where Senior UX Designer, John Stvan and UX Designer, Stosh Steward give a report of what’s to come.

This week was a wild one. The Destiny Community Podcast team took on Team Bungie in the first “Bungie Versus” stream. The Podcast team bested Bungie through refined teamwork and perfect strategy.
The team will be planning more of these matches in the future, and will have more information in the coming weeks.
There were a lot of learnings yesterday in terms of running the show, so they are refining the layout for how to determine the game modes, match lengths, etc. Got suggestions for who should be featured next? Feel free to get in touch with the team on Twitter here or post a suggestion to the Community forum on Bungie.net.
