Today, Bungie announced plans to add a new reward to Destiny, a video game in which Kirk and I just got to motherfucking Mercury.
This one’s interesting: anyone who has pulled off 10 of Destiny’s most iconic tasks—like beating Crota’s End on hard or doing tons of public events—will get access to a unique year-one emblem that Bungie says will never be available again after this. It’s only for Destiny’s most dedicated current players. It’s slick, too:
To get this emblem—which, like other emblems, has no tangible benefits and is just there for aesthetics and bragging rights—you’ll have to complete a number of tasks that Bungie is calling “triumphs.” You have to finish them all before September 9 for a shot at the emblem. (You can check your progress at Bungie’s site here.)
Here’s the full list of tasks:
- Reach max level
- Beat the Black Garden mission
- Prevent the summoning of Crota’s soul (finish The Dark Below’s story missions)
- Capture Skolas (finish House of Wolves’ story missions)
- Beat Skolas in the Prison of Elders
- Beat Atheon on hard difficulty
- Beat Crota on hard difficulty
- Finish 50 public events
- Win 100 crucible matches
- Get all 20 golden chests (five per planet)
Most dedicated players have likely already finished all of those, except for #10, because golden chests are useless trash and there was never any reason to get them before now, but hey, that emblem’s pretty goddamned slick.
The only problem will be having to rotate between this and the other emblems we want to show off, like a certain prize you get from a certain flawless Trials of Osiris run. Free suggestion for Destiny 2, Bungie: let players wear multiple emblems at once.
