Although the majority of the content in Destiny 2 is playable whether you’re playing solo or not, you’ll want to join a clan to get the most out of Bungie’s latest shooter. In Destiny 2, Clans not only give you a convenient and easy way to communicate with your friends and organize raids, but they also offer additional rewards as your clan progresses through various challenges and level up. If you don’t know how to create a clan in Destiny 2, the detailed guide below will provide you with everything you need to know.
Needless to say, there is a lot going on in Destiny 2. Lucky for you, we’ve also put together a step-by-step beginner’s guide, weapons guide, and leveling guide.
If you already have a group of players ready to play together in Destiny 2, then you are ready to start your own clan on the Bungie website. Fortunately, it’s a remarkably easy process that should only take a few minutes. Keep in mind that you will need to have a Bungie.net account before you create a clan.
Step 1: First, head over to the official clan creation page, and scroll down. You’ll see a few different input fields here, and you’ll fill in information like your clan name and currency. It can help introduce your clan to players who may not know you personally. The abbreviated section is usually an abbreviation of your clan name that will appear next to your username, similar to clan tags seen in other shooters like Call of Duty: War Zone.
2nd step: Once you’ve chosen your name and currency, press the button at the bottom of the page to access your clan’s main menu in your internet browser. If you are using the Fate Companion App, you will get the same information, but it will be spread over several different pages. To view your clan information, click Clan at the bottom of the app.
Step 3: Now you’re going to want players to populate your clan. You can always send them a clan invite while you play Destiny 2, but to make the process a bit easier, you can also send them a link to your profile page through a browser. To access it, go to the main menu of your clan and click on Clan Profile on the left side of the screen.
Step 4: Anyone with the link will see an option on this page to submit a membership request. With the default clan settings, the clan leader or an administrator will need to confirm the request for the new player to join. You can also invite users from the mobile app. To do this, press the Clan, followed by Clan settings. Under the Player management heading, press invite. Here, you’ll see an option to invite any player you want, including those from your PlayStation Network or Xbox Live friends list. You can create a clan with up to 100 players.
If you are a solo player or don’t know anyone who plays Destiny 2, there are several ways to recruit other players. You can use Guided games to find friends (which we’ll cover below), or you can use various online resources to partner with other Guardians. Here are some great ways to find players:
You will want to use a headset or camera to talk to your clan mates while playing Destiny 2, but when you’re getting ready for a raid or planning activities for the week, you can also use Bungie’s built-in chat feature.
Step 1: Click Clan Chat on the left side of your clan management page in a browser, and you’ll be able to talk to everyone in the party and even turn on notifications so you don’t miss any messages. For larger clans, there are even options for the administrator and fire team only, so you can organize relevant information more clearly.
2nd step: You can also organize a clan forum in the companion app. To create a thread in the forum, click on your clan banner and press the three dots at the top right. From there you will see an option to create a Private clan forum. Then tap the pencil icon in the upper right corner to create a New topic Where New recruitment topic. Here you can add polls, ideas, and even links to YouTube videos. A tag option also allows you to better organize discussion threads.
Now that you’ve created your clan, you need to make it stand out from the rest of the pack in order to attract new members.
Step 1: The first thing you will need is a great banner. Your flag will be visible to players, giving them an easy way to recognize the clan throughout the game, and Bungie gives players a robust set of authoring tools to make it perfect. These are usable in both the mobile app and a web browser – each platform gives you the same set of options – but we found the browser to be extremely slow.
2nd step: The tools allow you to choose a banner emblem, emblem foreground, background colors, additional banner details, and additional banner and detail color. The possibilities are not endless, but they allow you to get creative. In order to start earning additional Clan Rewards once you’ve picked your favorite colors, be sure to talk to Suraya Hawthorne at the Farm (or at the Tower after completing the game). She will provide you with the inventory item for your Clan Banner, which will increase as your Clan completes certain activities.
The best part about joining a clan is that it provides you with more loot. Clans earn special ‘Clan Engrams’, which give you new weapons and / or armor to complete many of the activities you were previously going to do in. Destiny 2. At the top of your clan profile, next to your banner, you will see a section with four icons below. These represent the rewards that you and your clan can earn. You can earn these rewards every week by completing four of the toughest challenges in the game:
- Complete the nightfall strike with your clan
- Complete the Trial of the Nine with your clan
- Complete the Leviathan raid with your clan
- Participate in the Crucible with your clan
However, at least half of the players in your squad must be members of your clan for this to count towards your reward. These rewards can also only be claimed once per week, and only one character per account can use them, so you won’t be able to cheat your Titan, Warlock, and Hunter at the same time.
The clan leveling system has been changed with the launch of Destiny 2: Abandoned. Rather than hitting milestones to gain XP and evolve your clan like you did in the vanilla version of Destiny 2, you must now visit the character Hawthorne and complete his challenges. They range from completing certain raids to finishing bounties. Keep in mind that these challenges change over time.
Step 1: At level 50, new challenges can only be completed with a squad, meaning you’ll need to be with your Clan mates to complete them. Previously, you could work effectively towards the goal while rarely interacting directly with your clan.
2nd step: You can earn up to 5,000 XP per week with each character, but note that your Fireteam must be made up of at least 50% of your clan members in order to progress to your clan level.
Not everyone is interested in joining a Clan, but they still want to participate in high-level endgame content, including raiding. Your clan can help these players by letting them join your team in a “guided game”. The system was initially only available to a limited number of players, but has since opened up to all players and allows you to find additional players for Nightfall raids and strikes. The clans offer themselves as guides for the mission, and the two parties are paired up to form a single squad.
It also means that your clan can still complete a raid, even if you have less than six members. A special “Oath Keeper Score” will be assigned to your clan for these activities, allowing researchers to know if your clan is generally holding up with newcomers until they complete a mission. If you work particularly well with new players, you can add them to your clan to serve as guides for future missions.
Step 1: Wait times tend to be longer depending on the role you choose, but joining Guided Play is incredibly easy. To join a guided game for a nightfall strike, head to your Destinations tab (hold the touchpad on PlayStation) then select the Strikes option in the upper left corner. From there, scroll right and you’ll see a tab for Guided games.
2nd step: You need to progress enough in the story for this feature to be available. You can also use guided games for raids.
Step 3: If you are a person already affiliated to a group of two members, you can click on the button To guide button. After selecting this option, an engagement will appear on your screen. Once you have officially accepted the oath, the game will automatically connect you with another user.
Step 4: You will soon find that it is a bit more complicated if you are interested in launching raids as you need to discover and pair your party with other users. If you wish to do so, you can do so by navigating to the landing page. Once you’re at this point, look for the raid choice (you should see it at the top of the page). If you notice a small Guided Games badge, you are definitely in the right area.
Step 5: You will need to increase your power level to 280 for freshman content if you want the chance to become a guide as a beginner. We would also like to point out that at least half of the players in your gang must already be members of the clan. If you are someone who far prefers to be a Seeker, you can achieve this by reaching a power level of 260. Players can start looking for an available position right away, but keep in mind that it can take a bit. time and effort. before you find one.
