Developer Bungie had previously revealed that an event called called Faction Rallies would start off on September 26 for Destiny 2, but not much more information was given on what they actually are until now. Bungie has now recently given more details on how these events will work and what players will receive in return by participating in them.
These Faction Rallies are special events that will begin next Tuesday September 26, at 2 AM PT / 5 AM ET / 9 AM BST and will start off with a weekly reset up until October 3 at the same time. All the Factions from the original Destiny – Future War Cult , Dead Orbit , and New Monarchy – are returning within this event. Players will have the task of “gathering supplies for their faction and destroying enemy resources.”
They will have a choice between one of the three factions to serve and then will be able to to earn Faction Tokens by completing public events, Lost Sectors, Strikes, or the Raid, or by playing Crucible. These Faction Tokens can then be used to obtain reward packages containing many items that are exclusive to that said Faction such as shaders, armor, and weapons.
Each faction will also have a powerful weapon that is specific to them as well. Dead Orbit will have the scout rifle, FWC a pulse rifle, and New Monarchy a sidearm. At the end of the event on October 3 the faction with the most packages collected will be named the winner and their respective weapon will be sold to all other players for 50,000 glimmer. While players in the winning faction will be able to purchase the weapon for only 1,000 glimmer.
