Destiny 2's latest Faction Rally only offers one new weapon

Destiny 2's latest Faction Rally only offers one new weapon

Bungie have revealed that the latest Faction Rally will only give you one weapon and you're going to have spend some Glimmer to get it.

Tokens can be used to increase a standing with a faction, which unlocks Engrams every time a new level is reached. Thankfully, though, the first Season 2 Faction Rally is now officially live, and it includes new weapons and gear for all Guardians to earn, while the first Iron Banner for Season 2 will begin on January 30, 2018.

The Faction Rally events that recently kicked off in Destiny 2 hasn't gotten off to the best of starts, part of that due to the loot system.

In keeping with the Destiny 2 theme of making a major change, not communicating it, and later apologising when players figure out what's going on, Bungie has put a harsh limit on the number of tokens that can be earned per hour in the now active Faction Rally event.

The first activity that made player suspicious was Lost Sectors, after players saw that they were no longer getting faction tokens from the chests at the end of each sector.

There is also a problem with Rally tokens as Bungie introduced a throttle to stop people farming them as they had in the previous Rally. "This does not prevent players from completing milestones related to Lost Sector chests". As it stands now, any player who opens more than two chests in a ten-minute period will not receive any additional rewards for the next ten minutes.

Despite the addition of multiple new Faction weapons, players found they couldn't be obtained through Faction Engrams.

Game Director Christopher Barret agrees with the outraged community, stating "The timer was meant to fix an exploit but it is way too penalizing right now. Additionally, the previous Winner's offering (Auto Rifles) and an additional weapon are added to Faction Engram rewards", explained Bungie support representative, dmg04. No new Faction Weapons are available through Faction Engrams.

Theoretically, a player could wait until the final Faction Rally of Season 2 to play it out and earn all of the new weapons, as opposed to playing this current one. This brings the total to four weapons within the Faction Engram, and a final Winner's Offering for factions to compete for over the course of the event. The situation mirrors the first year of the original Destiny, which got criticism for supposedly being stingy with loot among other issues.
