Destiny 2’s latest expansion is full of surprises. It’s brought along exciting new things that are still discovered, and now it has brought back the a key location from the first season. The Old Tower from The Red War is making its return, and here is what we know so far.
Beyond Light has brought a plethora of new content to Destiny 2. It’s set on Europa, the icy cold moon of Jupiter, and this location is filled to the brim with exotic weapons, armor, special enemies and new challenges. In addition to these, we are also seeing the return of some familiar things.
The Red War was Destiny 2’s first main story campaign and it pitted Guardians against the looming threat of the Cabal Red Legion. This enemy bombarded The Last City on the Battle of Six Front’s anniversary, and destroyed the original Tower. Now a few years later, the tower is finally making its return.
Speculation about this started when some leaked artwork showed the Traveler and the original Tower, both looking much like they used to before their fates in The Red War. This was followed by Destiny 2 player W0rdsm1th discovering signs of reconstruction at the site of the destroyed tower.
There is a yellow scaffolding and other construction equipment surrounding the ruins of this old structure. Now many other players have reported spotting the same thing when looking from the second level of The Last City.
We wondered if this would just be an Easter egg for Destiny Veterans to enjoy. That it would just serve as a reminder of the Red War and a sign that the world is moving forward, but we were hoping that Bungie was showing it being repaired to tease a new expansion. Now we know that this is related to the upcoming end of season event that has an Iron Banner quest titled “A Tower Rebuilt.”
This quest will take place on December 8 and it’s for a Hand Cannon and Scout Rifle, just like last season. The Iron Banner Quest will have you take down foes with your Super, capture zones, and land final blows with the Hand Cannon.
The Steady Hand and Guiding Sight are the reprised weapon that will be used in the event. You can find more information about the quest on the DestinyTracker Twitter account.
This is sure to excite fans who played Destiny 2’s campaign upon the game’s launch. This is the first time in years that The Last City’s Old Tower will be a vital part of the season so visiting it again will feel nostalgic. You should expect brand new challenges and announcements over the coming weeks until the start of the end of season event.
This is all we know about the reconstruction of the Old Tower so far and we’ll keep checking for more updates. We don’t know what this entails exactly for the future of this location but we’re excited to find out!
Destiny 2 Glory Ranks: What are they, how to rank up & rewards

Destiny 2’s Glory Ranks are perfect for flexing your skill and earning rewards in the Crucible. Learn what they are, how to increase your Glory Rank, and see what rewards you can acquire in the process.
Killing waves of A.I is a simple pleasure in FPS games, but there’s a different thrill when it comes to online. Destiny 2’s Crucible mode offers this with intense multiplayer action that also invites players to increase their Glory Rank and net tasty rewards.
Lots of players don’t fully understand the system and how it works, however. So we’ll walk you through the basics, such as what Glory Ranks are, how you can rank them up, and what you can get for doing so.

What are Destiny 2 Glory Ranks?
Destiny 2 uses these as a way of measuring how good a player is, and they can determine what level of rewards you can obtain.
Guardians that want to test themselves have many ranks to power through, and it can help improve your ability, leading to a more successful time doing Raids and other single-player content.
How to rank up Glory Ranks
Glory points are earned by winning matches in the Crucible – a competitive PvP mode in Destiny 2 – with enough points enabling you to move up a Glory Rank.
Taking part in the competitive playlist will allow players to fight against a variety of different skill levels as the game mode favors connection-based matchmaking as opposed to the modern-day norm of skill-based matchmaking.
The Quickplay playlist will not level up your Glory, so instead, make sure you are only sticking to Competitive Crucible modes.
All Destiny 2 Glory Ranks & points required
From beginners starting their first match at Guardian I to veterans who have managed to hit the Max rank ceiling, there are many levels to ascend.
Here is a complete list of all of the Glory Ranks.
|Glory Rank||Points bracket||Glory points needed for next rank|
As you can see, the first few ranks aren’t anything to write home about, but as you start to make some serious progress, the points needed per rank will seriously begin to mount.
Glory Ranks rewards
But what are you doing all this work for apart from pride and honor? Destiny 2 players are also trying to acquire flashy Titles to display, along with Glory itself.
That’s it. Glory Ranks used to reward weapons, but that was changed some time ago, and cosmetic alterations are the only true, tangible rewards now.
Glory Ranks are one of the many different ways you can enjoy Destiny 2, and there are also Gambit Infamy Ranks to climb up.
