Destiny 2’s base game adopted a free-to-play model in September 2019, giving players a vast amount of content to experience for no added cost at all. For a small fee though, players can experience Destiny 2 with the premium season pass, or they can grind for fewer rewards with the free season pass.
With the launch of Beyond Light, comes a new season pass during the Season of the Hunt. Like previous instances, grinding your way through all 100 ranks will unlock rare resources, weapons, and armor. The main attraction is an Exotic shotgun called Duality, which has two firing modes: Shooting from the hip will fire a spread of deadly pellets while aiming down the sights will launch a lethal slug instead. The second unique perk to Duality is that getting a kill with pellets will grant you increased precision damage while landing a killshot with a slug will then increase the duration of the pellet-kill buff.
Earning Duality is easy with the season pass. If you opt not to pay for the premium version you can unlock it at Rank 35. Duality will be instantly unlocked along with seasonal armor for your Guardian in the premium season pass.
The rewards across both the free and premium season passes are the same for each of your Guardians, although the purchased season pass has more to offer.
While you can earn the same armor in both tiers, premium season pass owners can grab that new gear three times in total and with higher energy ratings that will require fewer valuable resources to be spent on them. Additionally, ornaments can also be earned for the Wild Hunt armor that radically alters its appearance and the Antiquity cosmetic can also be unlocked for Duality, giving the shotgun a more handcrafted design.
