Destiny 2 Faction Rally - Faction Rally Event, Dead Orbit, Future War Cult, New Monarchy, Faction Rally Tokens Guide

In this guide, we'll be going over the Faction Rally event in Destiny 2.

Whenever the three Destiny 2 Factions reappear in the Tower, you'll be able to pledge your allegiance to one of them, and then trade in Faction Rally Tokens to your side, in exchange for various rewards. In this Destiny 2 Faction Rally event guide, we'll be walking you through how to pledge your allegiance to one side, as well as how to earn Faction Rally Tokens.

Destiny 2 Faction Rallies

Destiny 2's Faction Rallies event first kicked off back in September 2017, shortly after the game itself launched. However, Bungie revealed that the second season of Faction Rally is about to kick off on February 20, as soon as the weekly reset launches at approximately 9 am PST/5 pm EST. Once again, there will be three Factions to choose from, represented by the vendors just below:

  • Dead Orbit - The Dead Orbit Faction is represented by the somber looking Arach Jalaal, and were introduced later in on the lifespan of the original Destiny.
  • Future War Cult - Represented in Destiny 2 by Lakshmi-2, the Future War Cult Faction is home to Destiny 2's second robotic vendor, the other being the Gunsmith Banshee-44.
  • New Monarchy - The third and final faction being introduced in the Faction Rallies event, the New Monarchy Faction is represented by the sinister Executor Hideo.

Just below, we've posted a screenshot of where you find every Faction Rallies vendor within the Traveler social hub. New Monarchy can be found to the very left of the area, near Hawthorne and Ikora Rey, while Dead Orbit and Future War Cult can both be found in the Hangar area of the Traveler, near Amanda Holliday and Cayde-6.

Once you've pledged allegiance to one of the three factions, you'll then have to earn Faction Tokens, which you can do by taking part in Public Events, Lost Sectors, Strikes, Crucible matches, or completing the Leviathan Raid. You'll have to turn in roughly 20 Faction Tokens to your chosen representative in order to earn a reward package from them, and this is basically how the vendor rewards system works in the rest of Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Faction Rallies Reward Loot

Once you've turned in enough Faction Tokens to earn a Reward Package from your chosen Faction representative, you'll earn a random weapon, armor item, or shader from said vendor. We can't guarantee which items you'll earn on any given chance, meaning you'll have to roll the dice and hope for the best gear.

Whenever the Faction Rallies event draws to a close, Bungie will tally the total Faction Tokens that have been turned into each faction since the event began. The Faction that has earned the most total Faction Tokens will then be declared the winner, and players that originally committed to that winning Faction will then have the opportunity to purchase a "powerful weapon" from their representative vendor, for the small price of 50,000 Glimmer.

You can see all three of these elite weapons just below:

So, all that's left for you to do now is choose which Faction you want to pledge your allegiance to now that the Faction Rallies event has kicked off. If Bungie ever make any changes to the way that the Faction Rallies event functions, you can be sure to read about it all here.
