The Destiny 2 Crimson Days event starts on February 13, and brings some Valentine’s Day festivities to the game. Bungie has provided details on all the activities, which will be available for one week.
The Crucible will feature a 2v2 Clash mode, with “a round-based twist.” A new map variant, called The Burnout, will also be available for player to explore.
The main reward, Crimson Engrams, can only be earned through gameplay. Players will not be able to purchase them from Tess!
Here’s what Bungie is packing into the Destiny 2 Crimson Days rewards, along with some developer tips on the best way to earn them:
The best way to earn rewards during Crimson Days is to compete in the Crimson Days Crucible playlist, and we’ve tuned the experience to focus on rewarding single-character play. Most rewards are found within a new Crimson Engram, with all contents on a “knock-out” list, preventing you from receiving duplicate items until you’ve earned all of the new gear.
No matter which activity you play in Destiny 2 during Crimson Days, every player will receive both an Illuminated Engram and a Crimson Engram when they level up. Crimson Engrams are only earnable through gameplay, and are not capped or limited during the event. To qualify, you need only to reach the level cap for your Guardian (that’s 25 if you’ve acquired Expansion 1; 20 if you haven’t).
There are also five new rewards found exclusively for players who complete the following:
- Complete the milestone “Welcome to Crimson Days” by finishing five Crimson Days matches and visiting Lord Shaxx in the Tower to earn the Fire of the Crimson Days Emblem and the Tirastrella Ghost Shell.
- Complete matches in the Crimson Days Crucible playlist for a chance to earn the Undeterred Exotic Sparrow.
- Complete either the Leviathan Raid or the Raid Lair: Eater of Worlds to claim the Dieselpunk Exotic Ornament for Wardcliff Coil from the final chest.
- Complete the Nightfall Strike during the Crimson Days event to earn the Flaunting Dance Emote.
