Destiny 2: Crimson Days – how to get The Vow bow

By Lauren Aitken, Wednesday, 13 February 2019 08:51 GMT

The Crimson Days event has started, so grab a buddy and jump into Destiny 2.

Crimson Days runs from February 12-19 and Lord Shaxx has several duo-themed bounties for you. Whether that’s getting kills in the Crucible or completing strikes in a team of two, there’s plenty to be getting on with.

Completing Crimson Days bounties will earn you Confectionery Hearts which you can trade for prizes, including The Vow bow. The Vow is available to all players, even if you don’t own the Forsaken DLC.

Destiny 2: Crimson Days rewards

It’s worth noting that The Vow isn’t the most expensive item on this list, so I’d suggest completing a few bounties and saving up to get it first. You can buy the Warmhearted Gift several times and there’s a chance it will drop the likes of Enhancement Cores, mod components and materials.

You can also earn Confectionery Hearts by playing in duos in the Crucible. You’ll get five Confectionery Hearts if you lose and seven if you and your partner win.

  • Tirastrella ghost shell: 25 Confectionery Hearts
  • Undeterred Exotic sparrow: 50 Confectionery Hearts
  • The Vow Solar bow: 100 Confectionery Hearts
  • Dieselpunk Wardcliff Coil ornament: 125 Confectionery Hearts
  • Flaunting Dance emote: 150 Confectionery Hearts
  • Warmhearted Gift: 15 Confectionery Hearts

If you’re willing and able to complete everything, you can earn the Sugary Shell for your Ghost by completing every Triumph related to Crimson Days. The Sugary Shell has some very interesting perks, including Guiding Light which increases all XP gains.

You’ll need to complete nine triumphs to unlock the Sugary Shell:

  • Purchase Shaxx’s rewards
  • Complete 22 Crimson Doubles matches
  • Win 11 Crimson Doubles matches
  • Defeat 77 Guardians near their partner, activating the Reunited buff
  • Defeat 77 Guardians when they are far from their partner
  • Defeat 77 Guardians after you’ve killed their partner
  • Avenge your partner twice by earning Blood for Blood medals
  • Complete 11 Crimson Days bounties
  • Complete a Nightfall in a fireteam of two

Once you’ve done all of that, the Sugary Shell is yours. You have until February 19 to complete everything, so there’s plenty of time left to do so.
