Factions have returned to Destiny 2 after a brief absence between games and they’re ready to help the cause once more — if a guardian is willing to pledge their allegiance, of course. Players will also need to earn Faction Tokens in order to get their hands on the new loot each organization is bringing with them. YouTuber Gigz has published a surefire way to earn tokens in a short amount of time.
First, Destiny 2 players need to make sure they’re pledged to a faction — that’s very important. Next, according to the video, they’ll need to head to IO and land in the Lost Oasis, Echo Mesa zone. Once they’ve landed, they’ll go left and make their way to the Grove of Ulan-Tan Lost Sector, which should be visible on the map with an icon. After that it’s just a matter of progressing through and shooting the glowing boxes scattered around the area — there were six in the video. For each box that was destroyed, Gigz earned one Faction Token. As soon as he was done collecting, he fast traveled back to the landing zone and repeated the roughly two minute process.
Tokens can drops from Public Events, Lost Sectors, Strikes, the Crucible, and the raid, which means Guardians have a lot of options. However, it’s hard to match the swiftness of the IO strategy and, while it’s certainly mundane, it’s also efficient.
Factions were added in yesterday’s maintenance as part of a Faction Rallies event that will be live today. Players that are still mulling over what Faction to join will have three choices: Dead Orbit, Future War Cult, and New Monarchy. Every Faction has its own representative that can be met on the Tower, each carrying a unique inventory themed after that organization. Players will have to weigh the options and find a Faction that suits their style.
The gist of Faction Rally is clear: earn reputation for your Faction to net loot. What isn’t clear are the mysterious terminals that have popped up next to each of the three faction vendors. These terminals require a Dance Party Key that no one is quite sure how to obtain at this time. Some assume it’s an extra reward for some undisclosed task, while others predict it will come into play once a winning Faction has been chosen. We’ll have to see how all this unfolds once the Faction Rally gets rolling.
Destiny 2 is out now for PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version releases on October 24th.
