Bungie Day Celebrates the Community With Destiny 2 Moments of Triumph 2020 Launch

July 7th each year is Bungie Day, a Bungie community holiday founded on the studio’s love of the number 7 (7/7). It was started by the community, but Bungie itself picked up on it to continue celebrating the people who come together to play its games. This year’s Bungie Day celebration kicks off the latest Destiny 2 Moments of Triumph event, a yearly rally of content and rewards for the community to close out the current year before the new expansion launches in September.

There’s a lot happening today, so let’s try to break everything down.

New Bungie Store Additions

There are a few critical times each year when a bunch of new items get added to the Bungie Store. One of those days is always Bungie Day, and this year adds tricorn cuff-links, a Bungie Day 2020 shirt, Shaxx plush, and perhaps most importantly, Destiny masks… so you can make sure to wear a damn mask if you go out in public. One is a black mask with the Destiny tricorn on one side, while the other features a grey and black Vanguard pattern.

All purchases support the Bungie Foundation and will get players a pretty awesome new emblem.

Destiny 2 Moments of Triumph 2020

The Moments of Triumph 2020 are live, and this year’s celebration is a big one, considering the massive changes that are coming—and leaving—when the Beyond Light expansion launches this fall. With multiple locations and activities leaving the game to make room for the new content, Bungie is using this year’s Moments of Triumph as a kind of “last hurrah,” sending them off into the great unknown by encouraging players to enjoy them for the next couple of months.

As usual, players can earn the ability to purchase an exclusive Moments of Triumph shirt, along with getting a bunch of other in-game rewards like emblems and a new Title. Note that some of the Triumphs required for the title will not be available until Solstice of Heroes on August 11th.

This year’s Moments of Triumph also brings back five older Raids—ones that will be leaving when the new expansion hits—and players can earn the ability to purchase an exclusive Raid ring for completing all five of them.

  • Leviathan
  • Eater of Worlds
  • Spire of Stars
  • Crown of Sorrow
  • Scourge of the Past

Rewards are now uncapped, so players can farm the Raids for loot as much as they want without hitting the usual weekly lockout.

There’s a lot more to discover in-game too, secrets that Bungie doesn’t put in its news posts and on social media, so it’s worth hopping into the game to see what’s changed, like the arrival (hey, it’s the name of the Season) of even more Pyramid ships to multiple destinations. Remember back when I was saying Titan was a goner? It’s much bigger than that.
