Destiny 2 Season of the Undying_Season Rank UI

Bungie’s Destiny 2 will follow in the footsteps of Fortnite: Battle Royale and Dota 2 with its own version of the Battle Pass. Going live with Shadowkeep and the Season of the Undying in October, the pass will included a Premium and Free track. So if you possess the Season of the Undying pass for $10, then you’ll have access to the Premium track. Destiny 2: New Light players can level up the Free track.

The Battle Pass or Season Rank UI will confer different rewards upon ranking up. All experience earned will go towards leveling up and the ability to pay for ranks will be unlocked near the end of the season. That being said, there will be triple XP bonuses live for the first three ranks each week of the season. As per director Luke Smith, “Playing strikes with full stacks of bounties and rest XP should get 10 ranks in around 8 hours.”

Season Pass owners, who can also access the new Vex Offensive activity, will receive the following from the Battle Pass.

  • Four Legendary Weapon drops
  • Additional weekly and daily bounties
  • Additional weekly challenges with powerful rewards
  • A new weapon quest for an Exotic Bow, Leviathan’s Breath Exclusive to Season Pass owners
  • A new Exotic Hand Cannon, Eriana’s Vow (Awarded on Rank 35 of the free track. Awarded on Rank 1 of the premium track)
  • Three seasonal Legendary armor sets (one for each class). Collect a complete set during the first 25 ranks of the free track. On the premium track you get all three sets on Rank 1. These also drop within the Vex Offensive seasonal activity. If you want versions with higher stat tiers, you’ll need to play Vex Offensive to earn them
  • Three universal ornament armor sets (one for each class)
  • An Exotic weapon ornament for Eriana’s Vow
  • Two Legendary weapon ornaments
  • A new finisher
  • An Exotic emote
  • An Exotic ship

All players, from Shadowkeep owners to those trying out the series with New Light, will receive access to the following:

  • Patrolling the Moon destination
  • The opening mission of Shadowkeep
  • Two new strikes
  • Crucible Updates
  • Two returning PvP maps from the D1 era—Widow’s Court and Twilight Gap
  • Elimination in Crucible Labs
  • Armor 2.0 build customization
  • Eye of the Gate Lord Seasonal Artifact
  • New finishers
  • Two new pinnacle weapons: one for Gambit and one for Crucible
  • Free Seasonal Rank rewards, which include:

    – Two Legendary weapons
    – Best of Year 2 Bright Engrams
