Bungie Acknowledges Destiny 2’s Faction Tokens Issue; Further Clarifies Information Regarding Season 2 Weapons

Recently several Destiny 2 players reported on Reddit and other Destiny 2 social groups that they were able to earn hundreds of Faction Tokens per hour “without firing a single shot.”

Bungie acknowledged the problem and released a statement detailing when it started and admitted they are always listening to fan feedback. The studio promised to share details on the next Faction Rallies soon too.

There was an issue in the previous Faction Rallies where players were earning hundreds of Faction Tokens per hour without firing a single shot. In the recent December 12 update, Faction Token rewards were added to an existing system that was locking players out from Lost Sector Rewards. We have heard player feedback that this solution was too disruptive. We’re looking at a change that won’t make players feel forced to run to and from a single chest for hours while also not placing a hard stop on enjoying Lost Sectors. We want to ensure that every time you open a chest there is loot inside. We’ll share more details on this before the next Faction Rallies.

The studio continued to further clarify when and how players can gain access to Destiny 2’s Season 2 weapons.

The other question that players immediately asked when decrypting their Faction Engrams was: “Where are the new Season 2 weapons?” It was not made clear beforehand that the new Season 2 weapons would be added throughout the events of the Season rather than all at once in the beginning. This was on us. No excuses. You can read the full details with how the weapons will be rolled out here. We will be remedying this lapse in communication next week with details on what you should expect when the next Iron Banner rolls out in Season 2.

What do you think of Bungie’s acknowledgement of the problem? When do you think they will fix it?
