Destiny 2 is one of the many games that allows Twitch Prime subscribers to claim free items thanks to a collaboration between Bungie and Twitch. But how do you go about getting your loot? This quick guide will break everything down and show you the process from start to finish.
Linking your accounts
Before getting started, make sure that you've officially signed up as a Twitch Prime subscriber. You can do this either by paying $12.99/month directly through Twitch, or by connecting an Amazon Prime account to your Twitch account since Twitch Prime is included free with Amazon Prime. Regardless of the method you choose, you can sign up here.
With that out of the way, here's how to get your loot:
- First, head to the Destiny 2 Twitch Prime page and select the Claim Now button on the rewards you want.
Next, click the Link Game Account button to be taken to the Bungie website where you can link your chosen platform's account to Twitch.
Select the platform you play Destiny 2 on. You'll be asked to sign into your account for that platform.
- Once you do, the final step is to approve the linking of your platform account and Twitch Prime account. Select Approve and you'll be good to go!
Now that your accounts have been linked, you can claim future Twitch Prime Destiny 2 rewards just by clicking the Claim Now button found on the Destiny 2 Twitch Prime page.
Getting your loot in-game
Now that you've claimed the items you want and have linked your accounts, your gear is just a short trip to the Tower away. Here's how to finally get your hands on your gear:
- Launch Destiny 2 and head to the Tower.
- Go to the Hangar area and look for Amanda Holliday.
- Walk up to her and, when prompted, approach her.
- In her vendor screen, you'll see your claimed Twitch Prime Loot at the top of her inventory. Select it.
Congratulations! You've finally snagged your items and can now make full use of them.
