What is a Sparrow?

If you’re new to the world of Destiny and didn’t play the original game, you might be wondering what a Sparrow is. Sparrows are cool hover bikes that allow your guardian to whiz about an area at a much greater speed than on foot. A sparrow is also a bird. We are unsure if there are sparrows (birds) in Destiny 2 and this guide won’t help you unlock them.

How to get a Sparrow in Destiny 2

Unless someone discovers another way, there are two routes to getting your hands on a Sparrow in Destiny 2. One is to complete the Destiny 2 story campaign and the other is to reach level 20. The process isn’t quite as simple as it sounds, so we’ve detailed the steps for you below.

How to get a Sparrow by Completing the Destiny 2 Campaign

  • Complete the Destiny 2 Campaign.
  • Head to the rebuilt Tower and speak with Amanda Holliday in the Hangar.
  • Holliday will let you choose one of three basic Sparrows - at no cost.
  • If you want a better Sparrow, Everis (on The Farm) will give you a free Bright Engram box once you’ve completed the Destiny 2 campaign. This box might contain a Legendary or Exotic Sparrow.

How to get a Sparrow Through Bright Engrams in Destiny 2

  • Complete the Homecoming mission in Destiny 2 and the After the Attack sequence. This will unlock The Farm.
  • Complete the Spark Mission (the first story mission after you arrive on The Farm) to unlock the Eververse shop (run by Tess Everis).
  • Eververse sells Bright Engrams, but only to guardians at level 20.
  • Grind until you reach level 20.

That’s how you can get a Sparrow in Destiny 2. We’d opt to go down the completing the campaign route, as it’s less of a grind.
