On top of that, Clans will now have something that’s been highly sought after in the Destiny community for some time: Clan Banner rewards, which grant various bonuses, both temporary and permanent, to your Clanmates once they’ve joined. unlocked.

Here, we’ll explain not only how clans work, but also the awkward stuff, like how to join a Destiny 2 clan and, more importantly, how to earn clan XP for those valuable rewards.

How to join a Destiny 2 clan and explanation of clans

Clans date back to the original Destiny, where they were a means of bringing together groups of players who often played together. Back then, clans were capped at 150 members, but each clan also had a corresponding group, which would allow many more to join.

Now, groups have been separated into something tied to your account, with clans designed more specifically for playing together. Joining a clan is a great way to stay linked to a community that plays regularly, allowing you to join Fireteams for things like attacks, raids, and PvP matches with ease.

How to join a Destiny 2 clan:

However, as things stand, the system for joining clans is a bit complicated, especially if you have a specific clan you want to join; Although Bungie’s help page suggests searching for a clan on a certain page, its links actually only lead to one page. to create your own clan, and searches from that page (and the companion app that also appears as an option) will only show players, rather than clans, as results.

Fortunately, there are two ways to avoid this awkward system: a direct link to the clan page, sent by someone who is already in the clan and can access it, or you can request to join a clan from a specific location in the game .

To join from the game, open the “List” menu and look for someone on that list who is already in the clan you want to join. From there, you can view your clan and submit a request to join.

However, if you can’t access your game and want to join a clan as soon as possible (maybe your friends are already purchasing those shared rewards without you and don’t want to wait), the best solution is to simply ask one of your future clanmates. clan will send you a URL for that clan’s browser page, and you can go directly to that clan’s page and request to join from there.

You can find that URL by logging into Bungie’s site from your browser and going to the “My Clan” tab at the top left. Make sure you’re logged into the appropriate account if you’re doing it in a web browser too!

  • Level 5: Chance to earn a second Crucible token each time you receive one.
  • Level 6: Chance to receive a legendary engram by completing Heroic Adventures on Mercury with your clan members.

How to get clan XP:

In Destiny 2, Clan XP is earned by completing various activities. Clan members can earn up to a weekly maximum of 5,000 Clan XP, which resets each week at the weekly reset. You need at least two clan members to start earning XP. Here’s a quick list of what gives you Clan XP and how much:

  • Completing a story mission – 500XP
  • Completing Crucible games: 500 XP (any mode, win or lose)
  • Complete a Patrol mission – 250XP
  • Completing an adventure – 500XP
  • Complete a public event: 500 XP (only if you are in a Fireteam)

Other things you should know about how Destiny 2 clans work:

  • Clan perks are unlocked at specific levels; Those levels and perks reset each season. Apparently, we can expect more information about seasonal resets soon.
  • You can now earn weekly Clan Engrams – these change (and reset at weekly reset) each week, and at least half of the Fireteam working on the relevant activity must be a member of the Clan for it to count. You can only claim one per character per week. These activities are Crucible (single win required), Nightfall, Raid, and Trials of the Nine (7-win ticket required).

  • The more the better: Each player can only personally contribute 5,000 XP per week, so the more active players you have available, the faster you’ll level up.
  • Be kind to strangers: There is also something called Oath Keeper Scoring; This ensures good behavior when you are matched with individual players. Completing the activities and “amicably disbanding” will improve your score.
