Starting Wednesday, Jan. 29, players can link their Twitch accounts to their Bungie accounts and claim bonus gear for being a Prime subscriber. Twitch reportedly advertised the loot on its website, but took it down. In a post on Forbes, Paul Tassi — who appears to be working with embargoed information — described how the process will work.

Every month for six months, players can log on to get four Exotic and Legendary items from Twitch Prime, which they can pick up from Amanda Holliday in the in-game Tower. The loot itself seems geared toward newer players, with most weapons and cosmetic items coming from the first year of Destiny 2 content.
According to Tassi, the first month’s loot is:
- The Suros Regime Exotic auto rifle
- The Coup de Main skin for the Suros Regime
- The Skyline Flipside Shell
- The Unsecured/Outcry ship
Here are all the #TwitchPrime loot items for #Destiny2. The first 4 items will be the first offering, after that each grouping for 4 will follow once a month for 6 months total. You'll pick them up from Amanda Holliday. https://t.co/J6Hhbpwsan pic.twitter.com/Bhj0BjQuEC— JpDeathBlade (@JpDeathBlade) January 28, 2020
Streamer and data miner JpDeathblade found information in the Destiny 2 database about the next six months worth of drops, which you can see in his tweet above. If you’re looking to see when you can pick up different pieces of gear, count four pieces from left to right. Each block of four is a month (Praxic Finery will kick off February’s bundle, with Prometheus Lens launching in March, for example).
Bungie has yet to confirm that Destiny 2 Twitch Prime Loot actually exists. We’ve reached out to Bungie and Twitch regarding the validity of the leaks, and will update this post when we have any new information.
Update: Bungie has confirmed Twitch Prime Loot in Destiny 2 — starting today with the four drops we mentioned above. All players need to do is have a Twitch Prime account and link it to their Bungie account. Players can then collect their new loot on Twitch, and repeat the process every month for six months.
The first offering ends on Feb. 25. Bungie did not offer a full rundown of the rewards over the six month period, so the data mine above is still not confirmed.
