This Week at Bungie, we are welcoming back faction leaders to rally your support

This week at Bungie, we are welcoming back faction leaders to rally your support.

The factions are coming back next week to duke it out again. New Monarchy has lived up to its name, dominating the last three events in a row. Dead Orbit looks to return to glory, and Future War Cult is desperate to get its first win on the board. Next week, all three factions will have their shot. Faction Rallies kicks off at 4 AM AEDT on Wednesday, March 21.

Pride isn’t the only thing on the line. New weaponry is now available. Here is what’s been added to the packages reward pool:

Those are not the only new weapons up for grabs. Whichever faction has the most redeemed packages at the end of the event will make their prized weapon available for purchase. Anyone who pledged to the winning faction will pick it up for 1,000 Glimmer. Those who were not loyal can still get it, but it’s going to run them a steep 50,000 Glimmer. Here are the offerings the factions have to entice you to join their cause:

Future War Cult Sniper Rifle

New Monarchy Grenade Launcher

Dead Orbit Sniper Rifle

Their fates are in your hands. Choose wisely.

Faction Vacation


This will be your last chance at earning the ornaments for Season 2, so if you are missing anything, you’ll want to make sure you grab it before victory week ends on April 4th in ANZ. If you are missing any emblems, you will need to pledge to the faction you are missing before March 28 in ANZ. After that, Faction Rallies will be taking some time off while we work to make the event even better. We spoke with the Seasons team about their goals for the upcoming Faction Rallies improvements, planned for Season 3, to read more- head over here.

I know, you want the juicy details on how we are going to accomplish these goals. As we get further along in development, we will share more with you on how this event will evolve in the future.

What Does “High Score” Mean?

Every week, we plan on showing you the three highest-scoring fireteams from the previous Nightfall. Last week, there were some monster scores on “The Pyramidion.” If you are wondering how these Guardians were posting such astronomical numbers, some of the hardcore players in the community discovered a creative method of juicing their scores in Lost Sectors. We’re looking at a fix in 1.2.0, but until then, we’ll see who can be the most efficient at running up the score with these methods. Game on!
