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.

The Witch Queen made me a healthier Destiny 2 player
Hive Guardians created by the Witch Queen Savathun

I used to be what you might call a Destiny addict. Back in the mid-2010s, I was all-in on the first Destiny game, practically playing it daily. I had a dedicated crew I ran raids with, chased the highest-level gear I could find, and competed in the Crucible like it was a job. I clocked over 400 hours playing the game over the course of a few years, and when Destiny 2 came out in 2017, I started on that same path.

But life changed. My free time became more scarce as I got older and the idea of spending all my time on one game became unrealistic. I had other things I wanted to play and it no longer made sense to keep up with an MMO where the grind was always climbing. I still checked out every major expansion, playing through any new story content, but I began to feel like I wasn’t getting a fulfilling experience if I ignored the grind.

Destiny 2’s hot new exotic is another pay-to-win headache
The player is firing the green projectiles from osteo striga in Destiny 2.

Few things get the Guardians of Destiny 2 excited like hunting for the latest and greatest exotic weapons. Osteo Striga is one such weapon. This unique SMG debuted with Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, but with a problematic caveat: Only players who are willing to pay extra are eligible to acquire the gun at launch.

It’s the latest in a troubling trend of Bungie turning the pay-to-win screws into one of the best fanbases in gaming, and is one of the few black marks in how the developer engages with its community.
