Weapons tied to factions have begun to pop up in Destiny 2, but things will soon become much more involved. Bungie previously revealed that something called Faction Rallies would begin on September 26, but we had no idea of what those would actually entail. The developer has now provided details on how they’ll work and what you can get by participating. [Update: Destiny 2’s new patch is now online, which prepares for the game for Faction Rallies. As pictured below, you’ll see markers on the map for the new NPCs, but they aren’t actually in place yet.]
Additionally, each faction has a “powerful weapon” that is specific to it–Dead Orbit has a scout rifle, FWC a pulse rifle, and New Monarchy a sidearm (also pictured above). At the end of the event, the faction that collected the most packages is named the winner, and its weapon will be sold to all players for 50,000 glimmer. Members of the winning faction will be able to purchase it for only 1,000 glimmer. The winner will be named at 10 AM PT on October 3.
