Bungie wont forcibly unlink it, so that leaves you with 3 options as you don't have cross-save enabled. - leave it the way it is and continue without linking a different PSN - work with PSN and regain access - use a throwaway account (Twitch is the usual one) so you can unlink your Steam and move to a new Bungie profile but in doing so you will lose things such as all redeem code emblems, your Bungie friend list, potentially any Twitch/Prime rewards, most likely all Bungie rewards, and you also likely have your name changed to your Steam and may not be issued a token to change it back. If your Steam name is used during sign up but is filtered you may end up stuck as Guardian####

  • Thanks for the quick reply. So if I'm gathering this correctly, I could potentially create a new twitch account, add my steam to it and once done I can add my actual twitch and psn if that makes sense?

    You would do it like this: - Create a Twitch just for the linking purposes - Link it to your current Bungie account via https://www.bungie.net/7/en/User/Account/AccountLinking, if you have a Twitch already linked, unlink that first - Sign out of Bungie.net and then sign back in as the throwaway Twitch account - Head back to https://www.bungie.net/7/en/User/Account/AccountLinking - Unlink Steam and sign out of Bungie.net - Use the sign up option and select Steam then link your PSN and normal Twitch. Unless you're desperate to get it done quick try the PSN support way first, otherwise check this list: https://www.bungie.net/7/en/Codes/History as this shows all the redeem code stuff you will lose and decide if you want to do the workaround.

  • Appreciate the help with this, gives me hope. PSN support haven't been able to help, makes sense for security reasons. I just want to check a few things and I have listed my process to make sure I'm doing it correctly. 1. The emblems I will lose will be the ones I have redeemed through twitch and also as public available codes? 2. Doing this won't affect any in game content, earned stuff like triumphs or even emblems from specific activities? Process 1. Create new temporary twitch account 2. Remove my current twitch account and link temporary twitch account 3. Sign in to bungie.net with temporary twitch account and unlink steam (temporary twitch account no longer needed) 4. Sign in with my steam account, link my proper twitch and psn account.

    [quote]1. The emblems I will lose will be the ones I have redeemed through twitch and also as public available codes?[/quote] It'll be every emblem linked here: https://www.bungie.net/7/en/Codes/History and potentially some others that get tied to the Bungie account instead of the platform. Basically most emblems you'll see in game under collections->flair->general. Some exceptions exist like the Reborn brave emblem for legend onslaught wave 50 thats in that section but wont be impacted [quote]2. Doing this won't affect any in game content, earned stuff like triumphs or even emblems from specific activities?[/quote] Sherpa emblems would likely also be impacted as they're Bungie account rewards. Triumphs/emblems granted from doing triumphs/rank ups etc wont be. [quote]Process 1. Create new temporary twitch account 2. Remove my current twitch account and link temporary twitch account 3. Sign in to bungie.net with temporary twitch account and unlink steam (temporary twitch account no longer needed) 4. Sign in with my steam account, link my proper twitch and psn account.[/quote] Sign up to Bungie.net as Steam first at step 4, trying to sign in can cause you to be thrown into a loop of it saying no Bungie account exists, but yes thats the process

  • Thanks for the confirmation, just on step 4 now. I'm clicking my account then sign up and it shows sign in and with the account you want. I'm guessing that's correct even though it says sign in?

    Use the join up option -> pick steam and go through there The text on it should say join up/sign up but instead it says sign in
