The Crimson Days Valentine’s Day event is set to make its return in Destiny 2 and in an update made yesterday, Bungie detailed what players can expect.
According to Bungie, the heart of this event will be a 2v2 crucible playlist designed to get the blood of Guardians pumping and to test the bonds of friendship.
“The combat scenario is 2v2 Clash with a round-based twist,” reads the update. “We will also be debuting The Burnout, a new take on The Burning Shrine set in a future timeline where the Vex have succeeded in altering our reality.”
In this mode, staying close to your partner will recharge your abilities faster but if you stray too far, the enemy will receive a waypoint pointing them in your direction. Bungie promises that if you don’t have a significant Guardian for this Valentine’s Day event, they’ll set you up with a partner to partake in the 2v2 fun.
Bungie said in the update that the best way to earn rewards during this week-long event is to play in the Crimson Days Crucible Playlist and that the experience has been tuned to focus on rewarding single-character play. Furthermore, most rewards are found in the Crimson Engram, with all contents on a “knock-out” list to prevent from receiving duplicate gear.
Regardless of what you do during this event, every player that levels up will receive an Illuminated Engram and a Crimson Engram. There are no caps or limits to the amount of Crimson Engrams a player can receive during this event–you must be at the level cap (20 if you don’t have the recent expansion and 25 if you do) to earn Crimson Engrams.
Players can earn exclusive rewards during this event by completing the following:
- Complete the milestone “Welcome to Crimson Days” by finishing five Crimson Days matches and visiting Lord Shaxx in the Tower to earn the Fire of the Crimson Days Emblem and the Tirastrella Ghost Shell.
- Complete matches in the Crimson Days Crucible playlist for a chance to earn the Undeterred Exotic Sparrow.
- Complete either the Leviathan Raid or the Raid Lair: Eater of Worlds to claim the Dieselpunk Exotic Ornament for Wardcliff Coil from the final chest.
- Complete the Nightfall Strike during the Crimson Days event to earn the Flaunting Dance Emote.
The Crimson Days Valentine’s Day event will begin on Feb. 13 and end with the following weekly reset on Feb. 20.
