Destiny 2 players get double XP this weekend (update)

Team up with clanmates!

If you’ve fallen off the Destiny 2 train somewhat, this weekend will be a great time to get back on: You’ll earn double the experience points for everything you do.

Destiny developer Bungie calls this limited-time event a Clarion Call, and this particular one — the first for Destiny 2 — only applies to clans. In other words, the only caveat to earning double XP is that you have to be in a fireteam with at least one other player who’s in the same clan as you.

The Clarion Call will run from 10 a.m. PT on Friday, Nov. 17, until 10 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 20. Bungie noted in its announcement last week that now is a good time to join a clan if you aren’t already in one. You can even join a clan during the Clarion Call and start getting double XP. Bungie did say that it will hold future Clarion Calls that don’t require clan membership, so don’t fret if you don’t like playing with other people.

For more on the future of Destiny 2, check out the latest details on its first expansion, Curse of Osiris, which launches Dec. 5 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. The add-on introduces a new playable zone on Mercury as well as “raid lairs.”

Update: An Activision representative told Polygon that Destiny 2 players can start earning double XP even if they don’t join a clan until after the Clarion Call begins. We’ve edited the article to reflect this.
