Refer a Friend for Unique Rewards in Destiny 2

By Nicole René, 13 days ago
Do you like to play Xbox with friends? Better yet, do you like to take advantage of that friendship and earn free stuff in the process? Now you can refer a friend to Destiny 2 and collect unique rewards when you play together. You can check out Bungie's promotional video below.


When placed into the program, both parties will receive a special "Refer-a-Friend" quest on the next log in. Playing Destiny 2 as a Fireteam will result in the "Blessing of Friendship" which will boost XP when under the level cap. Furthermore, as stated above, both friends will be eligible to collect the exclusive rewards, such as the unique Shader and Emblem or the Borealis Exotic Sniper Rifle. To collect on the loot, players will need to complete the Refer-A Friend challenges listed below.
  • This is Our Story - Complete a Story Mission with a linked friend.
  • Guardians United - Complete 3 Public Events with a linked friend.
  • Our Crucible - Complete 3 Crucible matches with a linked friend.
  • Count to One Hundred - Reach level 50 and then return to the Tower to talk with Hawthorne.
  • All Right, All Right - Win a Gambit match with a linked friend.
  • Two Flames in the Dark - Complete a Weekly Nightfall Strike with a linked friend.

Before you jump into the game, however, there are a few key pieces of information to remember when signing up. It should also be noted that both players must own a full copy of Destiny 2: Forsaken for the promotion to go through.

October New Player Grace Period: Players that purchased Destiny 2: Forsaken between October 16 and October 30, 2018 will be eligible to participate in the Refer-A-Friend promotion as a New Player until November 7, 2018.

Full Inventory Prevents Quest Pickup: Players that have a full Pursuits inventory will not be able to pick up the Refer-A-Friend quest in Destiny 2 until they have made room in their Pursuits inventory.

Veteran Players with Multiple Referrals: Veteran Players who refer multiple New Players to Destiny 2: Forsaken will receive additional rewards each time one of their linked friends completes the Our Crucible step of the Refer-a-Friend quest. Once the referred player has completed the Our Crucible step, the Veteran Player will need to return to Bungie.net and confirm it by tapping complete on that link. Please note that rewards for multiple referrals may be awarded on a delay, as game services must sync with Bungie.net to validate quest completion. Once this process has completed, Veteran Players will receive a reward package at their Postmaster in Destiny 2: Forsaken.

Destiny Guardians: Players that own Destiny Guardians can only use the Refer-A-Friend promotion to refer other Destiny Guardian players.
You can grab a friend for recruitment yourself through the official site.
