Despite being less than a month old, Destiny 2's first special event is about to get underway.

Starting 26th September, players will be able to take part in the Faction Rallies, a new affair that pits the three factions from the original game against each other in a bid to gather supplies and obliterate enemy resources.

Guardians will be able to pledge their allegiance to either Dead Orbit, Future War Cult, or New Monarchy and earn them faction tokens through public events, Lost Sectors, strikes, the Leviathan raid, or competing in the Crucible.

Of course this wouldn't be a Destiny event without some new loot on offer however. Each faction has its own special weapon for you to get your hands on, and they'll be purchasable at the end of the event. Those who pledge to the winning faction will only have to pay 1,000 Glimmer for the gun, while those who lost are charged a higher price of 50,000 Glimmer. Dead Orbit will hand out a scout rifle, Future War Cult a pulse rifle, and New Monarchy will equip you with a sidearm.

Faction Rallies is a free event that will last through until 3rd October, with anyone who has reached level 20 gaining access.

This scribe will be teaming up with Dead Orbit. Who will you support?
