Update (Nov. 7): Destiny 2’s second farming rally has arrived, and with it comes a new farming method that players have found. We’ve updated the guide below with the details, and some information on the new event.
Original story: Now that Destiny 2’s faction rally is live, players are going to be working hard for their allegiances. And even though the event kicked off today, fans are already looking to gain as many of their faction’s unique tokens. This isn't just a popularity contest; there's special loot to earn.
Sure, faction tokens are a great way to unlock faction-specific loot like gear, but there’s a bigger score to be had. During the second Destiny 2 faction rally event, which ends at 1 a.m. PT on Nov. 13, players can rack up resources for their chosen faction by completing activities like doing Public Events, fighting in the Crucible and so on. These “resources” will be tallied at the end of the event, and the faction with the most resources will offer up an exclusive Destiny 2 faction rally weapon.
- Spawn into the Winding Cove area of Earth’s European Dead Zone, and head to your right to the Lost Sector. (Look for a group of boulders with dead trees scattered around them.)
- This will lead you into a network of caves known as The Weep. Clean out the Lost Sector as usual, taking out the boss — Rannix, Drenched Captain — and collecting the loot from the chest at the end. (Note that you won’t have to bother with shooting the enemy supplies anymore, since they no longer reward you with tokens.)
- Above the loot chest, you’ll see a pathway out of the Lost Sector. Clamber up those rocks and make your way out of The Weep; you’ll know you’ve gone far enough when you see the Winding Cove location pop up in the bottom left corner of the screen.
- At that point, simply turn around and go back the way you came. You’ll soon end up right above the Lost Sector’s loot chest. Amazingly, you’ll be able to claim the treasures within — including three faction tokens — without even having to defeat the Captain again.
We’re not sure how long this technique will last, so get up, get out there and get those tokens!
