Bungie’s 30th Anniversary Event introduced tons of new content such as new locations, more events – like the Dares of Eternity offensive and the Grasp of Avarice dungeon, and a new exotic weapon. With these new activities, comes a whole new currency – the Strange Coins. This guide will show you how to get Strange Coins in Destiny 2.
Strange Coins are the newest currency in Destiny 2 that are required to claim bounties from the Starhorse. The Starhorse can be found alongside the merchant Xur in a new area called Eternity. With that said, let’s find out how to get Strange Coins in Destiny 2.
Destiny 2: How to Earn Strange Coins (30th Anniversary Bundle)
As soon as you update your game, you will be placed in a match of Dares of Eternity. Complete the match by defeating other enemies and you will earn the Treasure Key in the end. After receiving the key, you will be prompted to visit Xur and Starhorse.
At this point, open your map and go to the Moon tab and look for Eternity. Once you reach the area, speak with Xur to progress further into the quest. Finally, you will be able to earn Strange Coins by doing the following activities:
- Dares of Eternity runs
- Vanguard Strikes
- Crucible matches
- Gambit matches
- Heroic Public Events
Even if you haven’t purchased the 30th Anniversary Pack, you will still be able to earn Strange Coins and use them. Plus, they have no special requirements apart from taking part in the activities mentioned above.
How to use the Strange Coins
Now that you’ve earned some Strange Coins, let’s find out how you can use them. After getting the quest from Xur, make sure that you collect 7 Strange Coins to complete the Magnum Opus quest and get the Forerunner Exotic sidearm – the homage to Magnum Pistol from Halo.
Not only that but you can also use Strange Coins by talking to Starhorse and claiming bounties. You can earn various rewards such as XP, Enhancement Cores, and Paraversal Haul containers by completing the bounties. Plus, you can also spend Strange Coins to get a random piece of Legendary gear or Treasure Keys.
Make sure that you collect tons of Strange Coins so that you can unlock as much content as possible. Let us know in the comments if you managed to collect tons of Strange Coins and did you get good loot from it or not. We would love to know your thoughts about the latest update in Destiny 2.
