Destiny 2's Latest Faction Rally Is A Bit Of A Mess

Oh dear

Bungie have revealed that the latest Faction Rally will only give you one weapon and you’re going to have spend some Glimmer to get it. The Curse of Osiris expansion brought with it five new weapons per faction but Bungie have announced that these will be drip-fed over time, at present none of them will be dropped via Engrams as they had in previous Rallys.

Many people have questioned what the point of the Rally is as there is no incentive to collect the Rally tokens, the only available weapon will be available to everyone at the end for 50,000 or 1,000 Glimmer, depending on the faction you signed up with. It might be a problem if Glimmer was in such short supply but I would wager that almost every player has maxxed out their Glimmer at 100,000.

Here is the statement from Bungie:

With the release of Curse of Osiris, each Faction has received 5 new weapons. These weapons become available over the course of the season, and cannot be earned through Faction Engrams immediately.

In the first Faction Rally of Season 2 (this week), there is a new Auto Rifle available as the Winner’s Offering. No new Faction Weapons are available through Faction Engrams.

In the second Faction Rally of the season, the Winner’s Offering is updated to a new weapon. Additionally, the previous Winner’s offering (Auto Rifles) and an additional weapon are added to Faction Engram rewards.

The final Faction Rally of the season will follow this functionality: The Winners Offering will be updated to a final weapon that has yet to be featured. The previous Winner’s Offering will be added to the Faction Engram rewards, alongside an additional weapon. This brings the total to four weapons within the Faction Engram, and a final Winner’s Offering for factions to compete for over the course of the event.

There is also a problem with Rally tokens as Bungie introduced a throttle to stop people farming them as they had in the previous Rally. However, players are completing Lost Sectors without cheating but are going so fast the throttle kicks in and they don’t get a token.

“The timer was meant to fix an exploit but it is way too penalizing right now. It’s being adjusted in the next patch but we likely need to adjust it further,” tweeted Destiny 2 Game Designer Christopher Barrett.
