During this first phase of our shared adventure, we’ve been thrilled to let you lead the way. On the monitors mounted to our studio walls, our development team has observed your Fireteam. We’ve spectated your missions, your battles, and your Raids. You’ve honored us (and yourselves) with your bravery and gunfire.
Feeling strong yet? To give you a head start, our fiercest killers have been grounded. Their most powerful builds have been kept under tight wraps so that you could discover for yourselves how a legendary Guardian looks and fights.
Now, it’s time for us to join our own party.
Bungie has always enjoyed sharing games with our community. Destiny will be no different. Instead of targeting specific community leaders or luminaries to step up and try to cave in our helmets, we’re randomizing the event. To put it a different way, we’re putting a bounty on our own heads.
Each week, a Bungie team will enter the Crucible.
Each week, you’ll be invited to hunt them.
Each week, those of you who defeat them will win this player emblem.
When fellow Guardians see The Sign of Opposing Will on your nameplate they’ll ask, “Where did you get that?”
You’ll be able to tell them, “I beat Bungie at their own game!”
Your mission (if you choose to accept it) is:
Thursday, September 18th
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM Pacific
Encountering us will not be enough to earn your reward. You’ll need to achieve victory against our designated team. Here are some of your marks:
imtylerdurden Josh Hamrick, Senior Designer
CE_Wizard Jon Weisnewski, Designer
Thug Larz Lars Bakken, Design Lead
DeeJ BNG Yours Truly, Community Manager
…and alternates to be named at gametime.
To claim your prize, win. Then, post a link to your victory in the comments below this article before High Noon (Pacific) the following day (Friday). Look for the Permalink in the upper right corner of every match view. Your link should lead us to something like this. No proof, no reward!
Winners will be announced in the Bungie Weekly Update. Player emblems will appear in the Tower on the following Tuesday. This is a test of your skill in battle, your navigation of Bungie.net, and your luck.
Stay tuned. We’ll do this often. Every playlist. Every platform.
As we are fond of saying lately, we’re just getting started.
