Destiny 2 content is playable whether or not you are playing solo. You might want to join a clan to get the most out of Bungie’s latest shooter, however.
In Destiny 2, clans give you a convenient and easy way to communicate with your friends and organise raids. They also offer additional rewards as your clan progresses through various challenges and raises its level.
CREATE A CLAN
If you already have a group of players ready to play together in Destiny 2, then you are ready to create your own clan on Bungie’s website. You will need to have a Bungie.net account.
Go to www.bungie.net/en/ClanV2/MyClans and scroll to the bottom. You will see a few different entry fields where you will fill in information like your clan’s name and motto.
This can help introduce your clan to players who might not know you personally. The shorthand section is generally an abbreviation of your clan’s name that will appear next to your username.
When you picked your name and motto, click on the button at the bottom of the page to go to your main menu in your internet browser. You are now going to want players to populate your clan.
SEND AN INVITATION
You can always send them a clan invitation while playing Destiny 2. An easier way is to send them a link to your profile page via a browser. Go to your clan’s main menu and click Clan Profile on the left side of the screen.
Anyone with the link will see an option on this page to send a “join” request. The clan leader or an administrator will have to confirm the request in order for the new player to join. You can also invite users from the mobile app.
Click on the Clan, followed by Clan Settings. Under the Player Management section, tap on Invites. Here, you will see an option to invite any player you want, including those on your PlayStation Network or Xbox Live friends list. You can create a clan with up to 100 players.
You will want to use a headset or camera in order to talk to your clan while playing Destiny 2. When you are preparing for a raid or scheduling activities for the week, you can also make use of Bungie’s built-in online chat feature.
Click on Clan Chat on the left side of your clan management page within a browser, and you will be able to talk to everyone in the group. You can also turn on notifications so that you don’t miss any messages. There is administrator only and fire team options for larger clans.
MAKE YOUR CLAN STAND OUT
You will need to make your clan stand out from the rest of the pack in order to attract new members.
The first thing you will need is an awesome banner. Your flag will be visible for players to see, giving them an easy way to recognise the clan as they make their way throughout the game.
Bungie gives players a robust set of creation tools to make it perfect. These are usable in both the mobile app and in an internet browser.
The tools allow you to pick a banner emblem, emblem foreground, background colours, extra banner details, and an additional banner and detail colour
In order to start earning extra clan rewards after you have chosen your preferred colours, be sure to talk to Suraya Hawthorne on the Farm or at The Tower after completing the game. She will provide your clan banner inventory item, which levels up as your clan completes certain activities.
