Destiny 2 - Bounties Guide, How To Get Them And Track Them

Warmind Strik

The most recent Destiny 2 update brings Bounties to the game. They work a lot as they did back in the Destiny 1 days so that series veterans will feel right at home with them. For people who came to the series with the most recent game, this guide will tell you everything you need to know about the new bounty system.

Destiny 2 Bounties

Bounties can be collected from two vendors at the moment, Commander Zavala and Lord Shaxx. Zavala will give you ones that you can complete in Strikes, while Shax will provide you with bounties that apply to the Crucible. Bungie has said that the bounty system will expand in the future, but for now, those are the only two vendors in the game that provide them.

To pick up a bounty, head to the tower and go to either Shax or Zavala. Each vendor will have five bounties available on any given day. It will cost you 250 Glimmer to get a bounty, so 1,250 for all five of them. After that, you have 24 hours to complete the bounty before it expires.

Once you have purchased the bounties, you can review and track them in the inventory screen. Open the Inventory and go to the Pursuits tab. All active bounties will be shown in here, and you can scroll over them with the cursor to review their details. Once a bounty has been completed, you can hand them in straight from the inventory. There is no need to return to the vendor you got them from.

Rewards From Bounties

When you hand in a bounty, three different types of reward are possible.

  • Vanguard Tactician/Crucible Rewards
  • Legendary Gear
  • Shaders

Zavala can give Vanguard Tactician rewards, while Shaxx can potentially give Crucible rewards. You can get any item from the relevant loot table, either Strike or Crucible. Legendary Gear can be in the form of an Engram, and you will need to head to the Cryptarch to get that resolved.

Right now, this feels more like a beta than an actual bounty system. The loot that drops is unlikely to push your Power level higher, and for the most part, it is all stuff that can be gotten from other activities. At the moment, it is just another carriage on the loot train for people who will be doing those activities anyway.
