How to Get a Sword in Destiny 2
Fans of the first Destiny will likely have fond memories of slashing through countless aliens with a sword. Though not always practical depending on the situation you found yourself in, there was something satisfying about charging in and changing things up from the standard run and gun formula. Well, the good news is that you can get a sword once more in Destiny 2, and here’s how.
There are a couple of different ways you can get a sword in Destiny 2. The first way is by simply picking one up as a random reward drop. This can occur from completing a public event, searching a lost sector, beating a boss, or just killing a random enemy during a mission. Of course, this isn’t the only item you can get as a random drop, so don’t expect to get a sword every time.
The other way to get a shiny blade in Destiny 2 is by decrypting one of the many engrams you’ll no doubt come across during your adventures. Once again, you can get a ton of different gear in engrams, so don’t expect your first engram to contain one.
Those who have picked up the Limited and Collector’s Editions of the game will also get a Legendary Sword for free, so be sure to redeem your code and pick it up from the Postmaster as soon as you can.
