Destiny 2 Completionists Are Raging Over a Triumph Worth Zero Points

A minor problem that represents a lot of Destiny 2's year one woes.

Destiny fans are a dedicated lot, and Destiny 2's Moments of Triumph is a good way to give players a sense of accomplishment for their dedication. It's also currently a completionist's worse nightmare right now after one, zero-point, zero value Triumph malfunctioned yesterday. It doesn't help that this Triumph is only rewarded to players who purchase a limited edition of Destiny 2.

At the heart of this issue, first raised in a Reddit thread yesterday, is a Moment of Triumph that is granted for owning "the limited edition of Destiny 2." Unlike other Moments, it's a zero-point Triumph that doesn't count towards the overall completion of a player's Moment of Triumph logbook. Instead, it's more of a bonus perk of purchasing the special edition of Destiny 2 like special weapons, limited skins, and other digital goodies packaged in special editions.

While many on the thread agree seem to agree that this zero-point Triumph is just a way to get people to spend extra cash, completionists are still miffed that it exists at all.

"People saying 'It's only 0 points tho' are missing the point. It's just a dumb inclusion. The triumphs should be things you get within the game, not something you unlock via purchasing extra shit in real life," writes redditor Dante2k4. "That's not a moment of triumph, that's just marketing bullshit."

"If anything, the fact that it's zero points makes it even more pointless and worthless to have in the game. Which brings out the sour side of it not being an in-game achievable thing even more," writes HawkMoona_Matata.

The Triumph is from the year one version of Destiny 2 when Bungie's live-service FPS was one of the hottest games of the year. Since then however Bungie has been on the defensive, working on improving player relationships and adding heavily-requested features and improvements in the lead-up to the Forsaken expansion.

So, while nobody is calling foul per se over this Triumph, it is strangely representative of Destiny 2's first year, with the hype that surrounded the game, and the small mistakes that built up over the ensuing months that resulted in Bungie's current position playing catch-up with its fanbase.

It's also just another byproduct of the live-service model where unless players actively engage with a game since Day One, it's becoming increasingly impossible to achieve true completion of a game, to the woe of completionists everywhere.

Destiny 2: Forsaken launched yesterday and is the start of Destiny 2's second year in service. With new quality of life improvements, many of the requested features, and heaps of new content it should be interesting to see how Destiny 2 fans respond to the game in the coming weeks.
