Destiny 2 Pre-Order Bonuses

Destiny 2 Box Art

This game was released on September 06, 2017 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Destiny 2 is a multiplayer first-person shooter with RPG elements developed by Bungie and published by Activision. The sequel takes place one year after the events in the Destiny: Rise of Iron. The Red Legion of the Cabal, led by the towering commander Ghaul, has devastated the Last City and scattered its Guardians. The surviving heroes will need to venture into new worlds to discover powerful weapons and combat abilities, and rally to take back their home.

The game comes in several different editions: Standard, Expansion Pass Bundle, Digital Deluxe, Limited, and Collector’s. The contents of these are outlined below.

Pre-order bonuses

Destiny 2 - Pre-Order Bonuses

Pre-ordering Destiny 2 through participating retailers and digitally grants the following in-game bonuses:

  • Coldheart: an Exotic Trace Rifle, new type of weapon in Destiny 2 that fires a continuous cold beam. Available with all digital and physical pre-orders.
  • Kill-Tracker Ghost: tracks your kill count in both PvE and PvP and features a unique skin. Available with all digital pre-orders, and with retail copies from GameStop.
  • Salute Emote: as it says on the tin. With digital pre-orders only.

Players who do not wish to pre-order need not despair, for they will be able to attain these items through gameplay starting on December 5.

Any additional retailer- or platform-specific bonuses are listed below:

  • GameStop: exclusive Cayde-6 figurine with physical copies of the game (while supplies last).
  • Best Buy: $10 gift card. Architectural-style print of the Coldheart rifle (with Expansion Pass Bundle only).

    Love Destiny 2. The ONLY thing that would have made it perfect is if they had added the ability to trade weapons, armor, etc with other players.
