Refer-A-Friend in Destiny and earn special items

You and a friend can get a special quest, bonus XP and special items.

If you’re a fan of Destiny and want some exclusive new gear, then all you need to do is get your hands on a friend. Bungie’s new Refer-a-Friend will get Destiny vets a handful of cool rewards. Adventure, earn rewards, and become legends together, just the two of you.

To get yourself and at least one other friend involved, all you need to do is sign into and refer-a-friend. This friend must have an activated version of Destiny: The Taken King on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. You and your friend must be linked on the same platform to earn rewards.

Once you’re linked, you’ll be able to earn additional XP through the Link of Friendship. The only thing left to do is complete the exclusive Speaker’s Quest (below) with your Linked Friend and then reap in the rewards.

The complete list of cool rewards you’ll earn by referring a friend to your Link of Friendship consists of the following:

  • Exclusive Speaker’s Quest: The Hunt for Loot
  • Link of Friendship XP Bonus Buff
  • Infinite Link shader
  • Sign of the Infinite emblem
  • Elemental Kindblades (three legendary swords)
  • EV-34 Vector Infinite sparrow
  • Duo Dance emote
  • High Five emote

Destiny is available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. This offer is only available for later generation consoles. The game underwent a special November update recently, and is set for a year-two item upgrade come December.
