Second Wa

Launching a game reveals to the team what we did right and where we could have done better. With the first month of Forsaken behind us, the team are taking stock of what they’ve learned. Some of those learnings will manifest in game updates that they are deploying in the very near future, but not every improvement can be made with code changes. They also want to make it less complicated for other Guardians to begin their journey in Forsaken.

Effective October 17, the purchase of Destiny 2: Forsaken will include the two expansions included in the Destiny 2 Expansion Pass. Every player of Destiny 2 who has yet to touch down on the Tangled Shore will need only the Forsaken upgrade. Our hope is that this will eliminate some of the questions that confront a player as they try to join our party.

“What about us?” we can hear everyone who has already purchased Forsaken asking.

You’re our Vanguard. The team appreciate you beginning the hunt on day one. You were there when the first raid finish changed the Dreaming City. You’ve been part of the conversation that has breathed enthusiasm back into the Tower. For you, and only the players like you, we have a collection of veteran’s rewards as an expression of our appreciation for being on the frontlines.

Every Guardian who played Forsaken prior to October 17 will receive the following bundle of items.

The Tiger Stripe Black Shader and Veterans Nameplate emblem are exclusive to players who earn this bundle by playing Forsaken prior to October 17. The two Exotic emotes will be made available on Eververse sometime in the future. All item names are subject to change.

Thank you for playing, and thank you for being the first to experience what we’ve created. This package is currently slated to be delivered to Veterans in early December. When the new Guardians arrive, please join us in extending to them the welcome that has made this community so notorious as an awesome group of people.

Out of the Iron, into the Fire

Lord Saladin returns to the tower, just in time to witness Guardians donning their brand new Shaxx masks. Iron Banner begins Wednesday 17/10, and ends Wednesday 24/10 in ANZ.

Coming with Destiny 2 Update 2.0.4, Iron Banner bounty objectives and rewards have been updated to address player feedback.

  • Each bounty will now offer a powerful reward
  • Bounty objectives have been updated to the following:
  • Lightbearer: Reduced Super kills to 20 from 25
  • Iron in the Blood: Reduced match completions to 15 from 30
  • Shine On: Reduced Orbs generated to 50 from 100
  • Iron Victory: Reduced match wins to 7 from 10
  • To Be Precise: Reduced precision kills to 50 from 100
  • All in a Week’s Work: Reduced kills to 150 from 250

Players will also unlock an item in Lord Saladin’s inventory for direct purchase with each bounty completion, featuring curated perk rolls. This time around, foxes and wolves will battle it out for a spot in your arsenal.

Looking to earn some masterwork cores on top of everything above? For the duration of Iron Banner, Valour gains will also be increased.

Double Valour: 17/10 – 20/10 in ANZ

Triple Valour: 20/10 – 24/10 in ANZ

With all these rewards, there’s no better time to dip your toe into the Crucible. See you out there.

 

Get Your Mask On

 

The team have already told you about masks your Guardian can wear, here’s a way you can join in on the fun in the real world: Download and print out the free papercraft chicken template, courtesy of the Bungie Store.

 

 

If you’re eager to change your look further, a three-pack bundle of papercraft mask templates will be available on the Bungie Store the day before Festival of the Lost launches, in both digital and physical editions. Each purchase of the 2018 Festival of the Lost Papercraft Masks will come with a Destiny 2 in-game emblem code for the Circles Entwined emblem.

Movie of the Week

This week, we’ve come across a few submissions that we just can’t get out of our heads. Throw on some headphones and get ready to rock out to some fun tunes.

If you’d like a shot at the Lens of Fate emblem, make sure to submit your video to the Creations page on bungie.net and include #MOTW in your title.

Keep an eye out for more Bungie Bounties! Here is the full schedule for next week featuring our very own Myelin Games from Australia! This is the last week we have scheduled but we will do more Bounties in the future.

It’s an exciting time at Bungie. Festival of the Lost is about to begin, with Iron Banner in tow. It’s always a pleasure watching the community reach new heights. Some of you earned your very own Wayfarer titles this week on Titan. More of you are summoning the courage to attempt a flawless raid for the “Petra’s Run” Triumph, and Luna’s Howl is becoming more common in the Crucible as players reach Fabled in Competitive Crucible.

With Update 2.0.4’s bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements on the way, we’re excited to see you checking off your goals in Destiny 2.

See you next week!
