How to get Destiny 2 Twitch Drops

Watch live streams to unlock unique in-game rewards with Destiny 2 Twitch Drops.

Destiny 2 Twitch Drops are now a reality. Players willing to spend some time watching Destiny-related content can earn exclusive in-game rewards like emblems simply by tuning in to some live streams. If you’re looking to unlock Twitch Drops, we’ve got the steps to make sure you can show off your new goodies as you play.

How to get Destiny 2 Twitch Drops

Unlocking Destiny 2 Twitch Drops is as simple as watching specific Destiny 2 live streams on Twitch for a set amount of time. But before you can do that, you’ll need to link your Twitch and Destiny 2 accounts. Note that Twitch Drops are not to be confused with Destiny 2 Prime Gaming rewards.

  1. Sign in to your account
  2. Click the player icon in the top right and select settings
  3. Choose account linking on the left
  4. Choose connect account next to Twitch
  5. In the pop-up window, log in to your Twitch account and click Authorize
  6. If prompted, enter your account name in the field and select Confirm the link

Once all of the above steps are completed, your Twitch account will be linked to your Bungie Account. From here, all you have to do is tune in to specific Twitch streams. Bungie will announce which streams are eligible. As of this writing, the first Twitch Drops for the Lightfall Showcase are on August 23rd. What follows is a more detailed breakdown of the above steps.

First, go to and log into your account. To do this, click on the icon in the upper right corner and select the platform you are playing Destiny 2 on. Once you’ve signed in, you’ll need to navigate to your profile settings. To do this, click the player icon at the top right and select Settings. This will open your Bungie Account settings.
