Want to make a Clan in Destiny 2? Bungie’s space-faring FPS is a thrilling game, but it’s more fun with friends. If you’re not part of one already, you may even want to make a Clan, allowing you to connect with other online players, coordinate on large events and activities, and earn fantastic rewards along the way.

Here, we’re going to explain how to make a Clan in Destiny 2, what the benefits of doing so are, and how you can invite your friends. Once you’re ready, get prepared to dive into some of the game’s toughest challenges. From first runs of dungeons to day-one raid gauntlets like the upcoming raid following the Final Shape release date, there’s so much more you can accomplish with teamwork in this game. Be sure to arm yourself with the best PvE weapons and best PvP weapons in the game first though.

How to make a Clan in Destiny 2

Here are the steps you’ll need to follow in order to create your own Clan in Destiny 2.

  1. The first thing you want to do is head over to the Bungie Clan website. Yes, you’ll be creating a clan on the website instead of in the game.
  2. Sign in to your Destiny 2 account by entering your log in credentials.
  3. After logging in, you should be able to see the option to create a clan. Click it.
  4. Now, you’ll be asked for four things related to your clan. The first will be the clan’s name, the second will be the clan’s nickname, the third will be its motto, and finally, the last thing you’ll need to enter will be a short description of your clan.
  5. Once you’ve put in that information, you’ll have to choose your clan’s language so that players know what language to expect, and then decide how the security measures regarding joining the clan should be.

When all this is done, all you have to do is click the ‘create clan’ button, and your new clan will be created.

Did you know?

If you’re already in a Clan, you won’t be able to access the options to create a new one when logged into the site or the app.

Alternatively, if you have the clan app installed on your mobile device, then you can skip having to go to the official website and log in, and just find the option to create the clan in the app. Of course, you’ll still have to enter the same information as mentioned above to do so.

How to invite players to your Clan

To invite players to a Clan, you’ll first need to ensure that you’re the owner of it. That done, the easiest way to invite somebody is in-game. Head to the director, and go across the tabs in the top right from ‘Destinations’ to ‘Friends’, symbolised by two blank adjacent cut-outs of people. From this menu, you can see people who are nearby, as well as a list of any online, offline, or in-game friends and clan members. Hover over the banner of the person you want to invite and left-click for Details. From here, you should have an option to send them a Clan Invite, which they’ll then need to accept in order to join.

Why make a Clan in Destiny 2?

There’s plenty of good reasons to make a Clan in Destiny 2. The first of these is obvious: it’s social. Being part of a Clan allows you to connect with other players online, often organising for larger activities and events in a way that’s challenging to do otherwise. It’s a great way to play with friends.

An additional benefit though is unique rewards you’ll earn from participating as part of a Clan. By completing ritual activities, raids, dungeons and more, you’ll contribute towards the Clan XP and help to level up the Clan as a whole. In return, you’ll receive weekly Pinnacle Engrams for weekly Nightfall, Gambit, Crucible and Raid activities that are completed as a group. Pinnacle rewards are the highest level Engram rewards you can get in the game.

That covers everything you need to know about how to make a Clan in Destiny 2. Friends alone might not be enough to carry you through the game’s hardest content though. Make sure you know how to get Ascendant Shards and Deepsight Harmonizer, some of the games’ rarest and best materials. Then check out our picks for the best Hunter exotics, best Titan exotics, and best Warlock exotics in the game to arm yourself appropriately for the trials ahead.

Should I join a Clan or make one in Destiny 2?

If you’ve got the connections or confidence to build a new Clan, we’d say go for it. However if you’re looking to get into a like-minded community as fast as possible, we’d suggest joining an existing one instead.

Do Clans specialise in certain activities in Destiny 2?

Some Clans do choose to specialise in certain areas of the game, such as PvP, raids, or Gambit.
