Bungie extends Destiny 2 Twitch Prime rewards for another four months

Bungie, the studio behind Destiny 2, is extending its rewards program with Twitch for four more months.

Destiny 2 players who are also Twitch Prime members are eligible for monthly rewards like exotic weapons and emotes. Past rewards include the SUROS Regime, Prometheus Lens, new Sparrows, new Ghosts, special weapon ornaments, and exotic ships.

“It’s been six months since Bungie and Twitch Prime joined forces as part of Twitch Prime Rewards,” Bungie said in a blog post announcing the news. “During that time, Destiny 2 players who have Twitch Prime memberships have benefitted by claiming some amazing rewards.”

To get the rewards, players need to link their Twitch Prime accounts to their accounts. Amazon currently offers a free trial of Twitch Prime if players don’t have it already. Once a player has linked accounts, they can log in to the game and visit Amanda Holliday in the Tower’s hangar to claim the new exotic gear.

The content is available in all game regions, and the offer can only be claimed once per account. Once the content is received, it is the player’s to keep, even if the free trial expires. Unfortunately, a player can’t claim past content. Also, if a player already owns one of the items, they can request a duplicate, but not for weapon ornaments and emotes. If they already own an ornament or emote, it won’t show up from Amanda Holliday.

The giveaway content is available all of the platforms that have Cross Save activated. If Cross Save hasn’t been activated, the rewards will be available on whichever platform is linked with the account. accounts are currently available for PlayStation, Microsoft, Steam, and Stadia. To create an account, a player needs to have a valid Destiny character, and if they want to use the forums, the character needs to be at least at power 775. 

Twitch Prime offers rewards for a multitude of games, including Red Dead Online, Doom Eternal, FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, and Grand Theft Auto Online. Last year, Twitch Prime members were eligible to receive a free year of Nintendo Switch Online.

Other Twitch Prime benefits include monthly subscription to channels, and the ability to save past broadcasts for 60 days instead of just 14, among other perks.

Is Destiny 2: The Witch Queen a good intro for newbies?
Promo art for Destiny 2: The Witch Queen.

Destiny 2 is an extremely dense game. Before today, I'd played it for around 15 hours and already had that message imprinted deep in my brain. There's a ridiculous amount of content in this game, so many locations to visit and nonplayable characters to talk to. For a new player, it's all overwhelming. It's why I struggled to start playing the game to begin with. It floods you with so many icons and pop-ups that you'll immediately want a simpler experience.

Here’s what Sony’s Bungie deal means for Destiny
Guardians from Destiny 2

Sony is in the process of acquiring Bungie, and while that's a pretty big deal for the games industry, anyone who doesn't play Bungie's games may not have much of a reason to care. For Destiny players though, the acquisition throws the franchise's entire future into the air. Previous acquisitions, like Microsoft's purchase of ZeniMax Media, have led to franchises that used to be cross-platform becoming platform exclusives.

So, what does Bungie's acquisition mean for the Destiny franchise and the game's fans? Let's break it down.
Is the Destiny franchise moving off Xbox?
Executives from both sides of this deal -- Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan and Bungie CEO Pete Parsons -- have stated that the Destiny games won't suddenly become PlayStation exclusives.

I rescued Destiny 2 ‘new lights’ from a game-ruining fate
A squad of guardians pose as they wait to load.

Destiny 2 introduced a new activity in December called Dares of Eternity as a part of the Bungie 30th Anniversary pack. In it, a team of six Guardians faces off against enemies and obstacles in an activity that humorously models its presentation on that of classic game shows like The Price is Right and Wheel of Fortune. It’s as ridiculous as it sounds, and is meant as a comical, lighthearted bit of adventuring with some quality loot at the end.

The problem with Dares of Eternity is that it automatically launches the first time you boot Destiny 2 during this 30th Anniversary event. That’s all well and good for experienced players who are decked out with the latest high-level equipment. But new players, or players returning from long breaks, are at a severe disadvantage in terms of leveling relative to the enemies, and are effectively stuck in an unending loop of getting their space-butts handed to them.
