Bungie Bounty Emblem Update

Bungie is still granting Bungie Bounty emblems to anyone who they missed in their initial grant. Any player who submitted a ticket using the Missing Emblem Contact Form does not need to submit a new one (even if you received a message that your ticket has been closed, Bungie will reopen it when they have the resources to grant more emblems).

Save your Stadia Characters

Destiny 2 players whose main characters are from Stadia should set up Cross Save with another platform so they do not lose access to their characters after the shutdown on January 18, 2023. Additionally, after January 18, players with Google Stadia as their primary account should not deactivate Cross Save for any reason. Doing so will result in players completely losing access to their characters. 

For more information, please see Bungie’s Save Your Stadia Characters article.

Stadia players who encounter issues accessing their characters once they set up Cross Save should see this Stadia Cross Save Troubleshooting Guide
