DISASTER RELIEF FUND

Bungie invites you to jump into action with them to develop a fund that will both support their efforts as well as help us build a pool of reserves that can be leveraged to support future humanitarian needs strategically and rapidly. Between now and September 1 at 11:59pm PT, Bungie has a few exciting opportunities to help those in need around the world, along with some incredible incentives to thank you for doing so.

Here’s how it’ll work:

DIRECT DONATIONS 

  • All donations to the Bungie Foundation will support the Disaster Relief Fund.
  • Donate $25+ and receive the Anchor Point emblem, distributed via email on Thursday, September 9.

GUARDIANS OF HOPE T-SHIRT PRE-ORDER 

  • Every customer will receive the Vital Elixir emblem, distributed on Thursday, September 9.

BUNGIE STORE INITIATIVE

A little bit more about Bungie’s partners:

TEAM RUBICON 

Team Rubicon (TR) is a veteran-led disaster response organization helping vulnerable communities prepare, respond, and recover after natural disasters and humanitarian crises. They acknowledge that crises such as COVID-19, impacts of climate change, and increasing natural disasters are ubiquitous. That is why funds raised through this campaign will support TR’s efforts to meet critical needs around the U.S. and globally, including high priority efforts such as the Haiti earthquake, wildfires, and global COVID-19 support. But these funds will do more than that. The Bungie Foundation and TR’s goal is to leverage these funds to provide exponential and incremental impact to the most vulnerable populations here and around the world, now and into the future.

DIRECT RELIEF 

Direct Relief is a humanitarian aid organization, active in all 50 states and more than 80 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies – without regard to politics, religion, or ability to pay. Each emergency has specific characteristics that are dependent on local facts and circumstances. Direct Relief coordinates with local, national, and international responders to ensure efficient use of resources while avoiding duplication of efforts or logistical bottlenecks. Funds raised through this campaign will generate efficient responses to today’s major crises and will leverage resources to maximize continued health improvement around the world.

Love,

Your friends from the Bungie Foundation

WEAPONS COMING IN SEASON 15

Bungie is saving a lot of the details until the reveal next week but for now they have provided a look of weapons you will be earning next Season.

Next Season’s ritual quest weapons is a rocket launcher with the Explosive Light perk. As is the custom, you can then collect Gambit-, Crucible-, and Vanguard-themed weapon ornaments by upgrading your rank on the vendors.

Three weapons have been added as post-game rewards for completing Vanguard Strikes, Gambit, and Crucible matches. These will drop randomly after completing these activities with random rolls. Here is a sneak peek:

Trials of the Nine weapons have been upgraded with random rolls and certain ones will drop from specific encounters of the Prophecy Dungeon.

Note: Bungie has plans to freshen up the loot pool of the Prophecy Dungeon.

World pool weapons will be updated with some fresh drops. Here are new weapons you can expect to start seeing pop up in the wild.
