Happy Bungie Day.
If you’re new to the community, you may find yourself asking, “Wait, why has Bungie dedicated a day to celebrating itself?”
To turn the page back to the beginning, Bungie Day is a holiday started by our community. Every year on the seventh day of the seventh month, we join our fans in celebrating the community as a whole— reflecting on friendships forged, sharing war stories from past skirmishes, or even flipping through some old photos of events where fireteam members met in person for the first time and solidified their bond for years to come.
This year, we have some exciting news.
Moments of Triumph
What’s available today is just a taste of what’s to come with the Solstice of Heroes event, which will expand the list of Triumphs and rewards that players may earn. The complete list of Triumphs will become available in-game starting on July 31, 2018.
Some of the hardcore veterans among you may have already done everything there is to do thus far, but some of you might have some progress to make in the next few weeks.
When Solstice of Heroes begins, Triumphs will become available in-game that track your progress towards Moments of Triumph. As you complete these Triumphs, they will increase your score, which will unlock certain rewards at different point thresholds.
Here is the breakdown of rewards for crossing each point threshold:
- Complete any Triumph – Get your tracking emblem for Moments of Triumph
- This emblem will show total Triumph Points earned
- 125 points – Get the Right Choice, a Legendary Ghost Shell
- 250 points – The Solstice of Heroes Moments of Triumph T-shirt offer becomes available
- 300 points – Get Comrades in Arms, a Legendary Sparrow
- 400 points (all) – Get the Eternally Triumphant emblem upgrade
The Solstice of Heroes Moments of Triumph T-shirt redemption page
is live now, but you won't be able to secure your code until Solstice of Heroes begins on July 31, 2018. After you complete enough Triumphs in Destiny 2
to reach a score of 250, you can go to the Moments of Triumph page on Bungie.net to retrieve the code you will need to purchase your customizable T-shirt.
These are not the only rewards you can earn during the Solstice of Heroes. We’ll have more specifics on that leading up to the event. Stay tuned to the blog on July 17, 2018, for more details.
But Wait, There's More!
That’s not all. The Bungie Store
also has a new collection of wares to celebrate this community holiday. Who knows, you may meet a fellow Guardian who recognizes your swag and joins you in a future raid.
If you make a purchase this week, you will also receive a code for the Day of Seven emblem, available through July 14, 2018.
Best of all, when you do business with the Bungie Store, you’re helping to support the Bungie Foundation
As our last gift to you on this community-created holiday, here are some Forsaken wallpapers to decorate your devices while you count down the days until September 4.
Thank you for creating this holiday. It gives us another moment to celebrate this community, how far it’s come, and everything you’ve accomplished over the years. Thank you for your passion, your inspiration, and your Light.
There will be more events throughout the summer that will serve as an appetizer leading up to the launch of Destiny 2: Forsaken. Until next time! Now we have some Triumph Points to grind…
Happy Bungie Day.
