Although there have been many watershed moments throughout the lifespan of Destiny 2, two stand out for the PvP community. Now, Bungie says it will be rewarding the “survivors” of those events with unique emblems.
Previously, Bungie had revealed that players would receive a special Triumph for participating in Crucible during the reign of the Lord of Wolves exotic shotgun. Destiny 2 players that compete in an Iron Banner match between now and July 30th will unlock a Triumph and the Wolves Unleashed emblem. However, chances are many players have already unlocked the emblem for participating in Iron Banner between June 18th and June 25th.
The good news is that Lord of Wolves won’t be as potent as it is now following an update next week. Bungie intends to nerf the Destiny 2 exotic’s range and ammo count in an effort to reduce its effectiveness when the “Release the Wolves perk is active.
While Bungie revealed the Lord of the Wolves Triumph ahead of time, the Destiny 2 developer also revealed a reward for those players who experienced the Laser Tag event of 2017. For those that may not remember, the Prometheus Lens introduced with the Curse of Osiris DLC expansion was extremely broken upon release. It was capable of killing an enemy guardian in a few seconds and had incredible range.
This was also back when Trials of the Nine was still active, so any who ventured into the weekly PvP event found that they were outmatched against any players who had the weapon. And since Bungie couldn’t patch the weapon so quickly, they simply put it into Xur’s inventory and turned the Crucible into Laser Tag.
So those players who participated in a Crucible match between December 8th and December 12th, 2017 will receive a pretty cool emblem:

Emblems may not be the most glamorous rewards for Destiny 2 players, but these are a fun way to remember two of Destiny 2’s key PvP moments. Granted, both emblems are also attached to instances where a weapon was broken and ruining Crucible, but that’s par for the course when it comes to Destiny 2 these days.
Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
