fd68c782-1459-4a21-9f7b-0f87a6769d0bCrimson Days celebrates two Guardians, united against the competition, watching one another’s backs and becoming legend together. A Crucible Fireteam, forging bonds of teamwork and friendship that even death only strengthens.

Bungie has revealed more about Destiny‘s upcoming Crimson Days event, including a list of themed loot and more info about the limited run Crucible mode, Crimson Doubles. For one week, Bungie is opening up a Fireteam-Only 2v2 Elimination playlist with a twist: you get a significant buff while your teammate is dead. When your teammate dies, you become “enraged” with the Broken Heart buff. When you find yourself alone in the fight, you gain maximum ratings for Armor, Agility, Recovery, and Weapon Handling speed.

Crimson Doubles


Form a Fireteam with a friend and confront all challengers in an all new 2v2 Elimination Mode. Win five rounds against the opposing team to secure victory. The all new Crimson Doubles game mode will be available for a limited time, beginning February 9th, 2016 and ending on February 16th, 2016. Launch Crimson Doubles via the featured activities section available in the Director. You must be in a Fireteam of two players to play Crimson Doubles.

New Quest And Bounties

Lord Shaxx has an all new Quest and brand new Bounties for Guardians willing to forge themselves in Crimson Doubles combat. Visit him in the Tower to obtain them prior to starting your matches.

Broken Heart

If your teammate falls to the opposition in Crimson Doubles, you will be infused with the power of Broken Heart. In your vengeful state, you will be faster on the draw and much quicker to recover from any damage you take. Use this boost to avenge your partner and keep your dreams of victory alive. The Broken Heart buff will last until you revive your fallen comrade, until the round ends, or until you fall in combat yourself.

Lovely Loot


Complete Lord Shaxx’s “Crimson Bonds” quest for a new Crimson Days Emblem. Play Crimson Doubles for a chance at new Shaders and new Ghost Shells that can drop at up to 320 Light. Crunch down a Crimson Candy to buff yourself and your Fireteam.

Crimson Connection

When a Guardian consumes a Crimson Candy, they share a Crimson Connection with all of the other members in their current Fireteam that boosts experience gain on all equipped weapons for 30 minutes.

Eververse Restocked

Tess Everis has added new emotes to the Eververse Store. Get down with the new Awkward and Strange dances, give a Secret Greeting or Fist Bump to your Crimson Doubles partner, or Charm potential new friends in the Tower when you’re looking for Fireteam.

*Holiday emotes may only be available for sale for a limited time, but once purchased will always be available for your Guardians.

Crimson Days runs from February 9 to February 16.

Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am 50% of the awesome people behind this website. I enjoy writing about my deep love for (J)RPG's, fighting games, and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and Battle Royale games. Absolutely love Sushi and Burgers.
