New Monarchy, Dead Orbit & Future War Cult Return To Destiny 2 Next Week

Faction Rally

If you wondered what happened to your three favourite factions and their leaders as the Tower fell at the start of Destiny, then you need worry no longer. They all made it just fine, and they’ll be returning to Destiny 2’s social space next week for a special event called Faction Rallies, which brings a little glimmer of Splatoon’s Splatfests to the game.

From 10AM UK time on Tuesday 26th September, Arach Jalaal from Dead Orbit, Lakshmi-2 from Future War Cult, and Executor Hideo of New Monarchy will be asking you to pledge your loyalty to one of them and fight for them during that week. Everything from public events to Lost Sectors, strikes, multiplayer and raiding will count.

During that time, you’ll be able to earn faction tokens to spend on loot boxes filled with branded gear, just as in the original Destiny. You’ll also be able to be disappointed that it’s just recoloured and tweaked Legendary gear you can earn in the game. However, you’ll have to keep fighting, because at the end of the week, the faction that has done the best will be rewarded with being able to pick up a high powered weapon for just 1000 glimmer. If you chose poorly, you can still get this weapon, but for 50,000 glimmer.

I feel sorry for New Monarchy, who’ve been sold up the river with a sidearm, where Dead Orbit  have a scout rifle and FWC a funky looking pulse rifle.

    1000 glimmer bit is rather amusing, given the 50,000 glimmer is child’s play for anyone dug into the game.

    The pistol is indeed sadly useless.
