Destiny 2’s Crimson Days event includes Sparrows meant for two

Shaxx is back to spread the love

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, Destiny 2’s Lord Shaxx is eager to bring the season of love back to the tower. In a post on its website, Bungie revealed the details for 2020’s Crimson Days event in Destiny 2, which runs Feb. 11-18.

Players familiar with Crimson Days past shouldn’t expect much new for this year’s Valentine’s Day stand-in. The event-exclusive bow, The Vow, is back again this year. And players interested in taking on their fellow Guardians in a more intimate setting can play the two-versus-two Crimson Doubles mode.

The Crimson Days Sparrows are some of the few new things in this year’s event. The Sparrows come in a pair, and players can ride them side by side for a unique look. They mirror each other, with one side displaying one half of the Crimson days logo, and the other completing it. It’s like friendship lockets of space motorcycles.

Bungie’s post refers to the Sparrows as Crimson Days gear:

The bonds between Guardians are eternal but Crimson Days also brings loot to fall in love with, including a Ghost shell, ornament, emote, and a pair of Sparrows that are meant for one another. All Shaxx asks for in return is your heart.

Players can purchase the Exotic Sparrows by participating in Crimson Days. However, the emote, ornament, and Ghost shell are exclusive to Destiny’s real-money store (as mentioned later in the post).

Crimson Days is free for all Destiny 2 players.

Update: In its weekly blog post, Bungie confirmed the two Exotic Sparrows are gameplay rewards — purchased with Confectionery Hearts. We’ve updated the post to reflect Bungie’s announcement.
