How to Make a Clan in Destiny 2
Clans are in-game player groups in Destiny 2. They help players stay in touch and take on assorted PvP and PvE activities together. While many of those pursuits may be completed solo or with random teammates, being able to group up reliably is a major boon. That is especially true when it comes to raids, which have minimum participant requirements and reward coordination. On top of that, clans encourage cooperation by letting members earn special rewards by playing with each other. Keep reading to learn all about setting up a clan and what comes next!
Making a Clan
To start your clan, all you need is a Bungie account that is at least 30 days old or tied to a Guardian who reached the Tower. If you just got the game and don’t want to wait, you can rent a booster to meet the latter requirement quickly. You do not need any members other than yourself to start a Destiny clan. However, it will not be fully functional or visible in the game until you are joined by at least one other player. The clan can be created through the Clans page of the official website or the companion app (available for Android and iOS). Either way, the process is very simple:
- Log in to your account on the app or website;
- Fill in the clan profile details. That includes a full name, a four-character callsign that will appear next to the member Guardians’ names, a motto, and a mission statement (description);
- Design a unique clan banner by picking an emblem, an ornament, and colors for different elements from a set of premade options;
- Choose an official clan language;
- Set your initial security, permissions, and membership options. The latter allows you to choose whether to let new members join on request or implement an approval or invite-only system;
- Finalize details by clicking the “Create Clan” button.
Once the process is finished, you will be able to start inviting members while playing Destiny or through the companion app. A clan can include up to a hundred player accounts. You can extend admin privileges to other members to help you manage the clan. At your discretion, admins may be allowed to invite or remove members, promote them from beginners to full members, and edit the group’s profile. However, as Founder, you will always have exclusive control over security and membership settings unless you turn over the Founder status to an admin. You will need to do that to leave the clan unless you are the only person in it. Deleting a clan is possible only after everyone has left it.
Clan members gain access to multiple advantages, from quality-of-life social features to gameplay-changing rewards:
- Each clan has its private forum on the companion app and up to six dedicated chat channels;
- Clans can host Guided Games for Normal versions of endgame content like the Vault of Glass raid, helping out solo players and potentially recruiting them afterward;
- During each season, members can earn XP for the clan by completing Suraya Hawthorne’s weekly bounties with Fireteams consisting of 50%+ clan members. XP progress gradually unlocks five seasonal perks, which give members banner item-equipped bonuses such as bonus Trials Tokens. All progress resets on season end;
- Each week, every clan account can earn up to four Engrams containing Powerful rewards. The Engrams require Fireteams with 50%+ clan members to complete a Crucible match, a Nightfall strike, any Raid, and a Trials of Osiris run.
Starting a clan may seem like a lot of trouble, but the benefits and access to reliable teammates can mean a major difference in your in-game experience. While you can join an existing clan, sooner or later you may feel tempted to strike out on your own. The success of your clan is ultimately up to you and your allies.
