Destiny 2 Jan 16-23 Faction Rally Guide

Destiny 2 Faction Rally is returning from Jan 16 to 23 for the third time (second time for PC). Here is a guide to the new items for this round of Faction Rally.

Note: If you are not sure what Faction Rally is, please consort this guide. The Faction Rally returns on average about once a month and offer new items each time it returns.

Token Farming Nerfs

Due to the exploit on Faction Rally Token farming last event, Bungie has put in a very long cooldown on Lost Sector chests so Lost Sectors are a bad method to get Faction Tokens as you won’t get anything even if you run different Lost Sectors legitimately.

Here are the other methods you can earn Faction Rally tokens

  • Daily Faction Rally Milestone
  • Completing Public Events in any Destination – 5 token per heroic event
  • Opening Lost Sector chests – 3 token per chest (long cooldown)
  • Quickplay or Competitive Crucible
  • Trials of the Nine
  • Strikes – 5 to 9 tokens per completion
  • Nightfall – 10 to 18 tokens for first completion
  • Raid

New Victory Weapons

Only the faction that win this week’s Faction Rally will have their weapon available for purchase. If you pledge to the winning faction, you can get it for 1000 glimmer while others will need to purchase it for 50k glimmer.

New Guns to Be Added

These new guns will be added in future Faction Rallies.

With the release of Curse of Osiris, each Faction has received 5 new weapons. These weapons become available over the course of the season, and cannot be earned through Faction Engrams immediately.

In the first Faction Rally of Season 2 (this week), there is a new Auto Rifle available as the Winner’s Offering. No new Faction Weapons are available through Faction Engrams.

In the second Faction Rally of the season, the Winner’s Offering is updated to a new weapon. Additionally, the previous Winner’s offering (Auto Rifles) and an additional weapon are added to Faction Engram rewards.

The final Faction Rally of the season will follow this functionality: The Winners Offering will be updated to a final weapon that has yet to be featured. The previous Winner’s Offering will be added to the Faction Engram rewards, alongside an additional weapon. 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.

    Can you explain how to unlock the armor items for purchase? Do you have to open 10 engrams at a time to get the helmet? Or will opening one at a time, 10 times get it unlocked? I thought the number would count down as you open them, but it doesn’t. Thanks.

    • Just open 10 faction engrams and you’ll be able to purchase it.

      You only have to open 10 engrams in total. The counter doesn’t go down but as the number of engrams you decode goes up the armor pieces unlock once you have opened the required amount
