Dead Orbit Wins Destiny 2's First Faction Rally

There can be only one. Today marks the end of Destiny 2's first Faction Rally event, and after a week of Guardians pledging and fighting for the three factions, Bungie has announced a winner: Dead Orbit. 

Those who pledged to the winning faction last week can race over to the tower, which has been decked out in Dead Orbit colors and banners, in order to get a legendary reward from Dead Orbit leader Arach Jalaal. Dead Orbit players can pick up the legendary scout rifle Haunted Earth for only 1,000 glimmer, while all other players can pay the not-so-reasonable price of 50,000 glimmer to get the weapon. Players will be able to get Haunted Earth for the next seven days as part of Victory Week, so make sure to nab that scout rifle, Dead Orbiters! Of course, clever players who have three different characters pledged to each of the factions will always be able to get the legendary reward for cheap. Let's keep that on the downlow though. 

Only the winning faction's weapon is available for purchase now that the event is over, but players can still cash in any faction tokens they may have for additional rewards from their particular faction.
