The Destiny 2 fanbase is a vibrant community full of excellent players and streamers, all of whom are fully invested in Bungie’s looter shooter. One of the best ways to engage with other Destiny 2 players is to look into creating or joining a clan. Clans are private communities that allow you to join up with your friends, earn exclusive rewards, and more easily take on end-game content.

The Queen’s Dynasty

  • Platforms: Xbox/PC
  • Discord: Yes
  • Purpose: Raid Sherpas
  • Members: 600+

If you’re looking for a community built around helping others navigate Raids, then this clan is for you. Originally launched by an individual named Hambis, their goal was to teach as many Guardians as possible how to complete their first Raid. This effort has ballooned into a 600-person community with nine managing members, and a slew of expert Sherpas that you can schedule a time to Raid with.

It really is all about community here, with the clan regularly hosting movie nights, playing special events, and running through other Destiny 2 content. There are currently four clans underneath the main group (two on PC and 2 on Xbox). To join, reach out to Hambis1901#4644 on Discord. There are currently no requirements aside from being an active player and being respectful to others.

That’s exactly what WARD offers, with a whopping 2,000 members and twenty-four individual clans across PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.

They offer weekly Raid teachings, private matches, quest assistance, and even PvP runs. They’re also very welcome to adding New Lights and helping them get through the introductory missions.

  • Purpose: Multi-game play
  • Members: 5,000+

With an incredibly large community, Ashes of Savathun has evolved into a multi-game clan. They’re still primarily focused on Destiny 2, but you can also join to jump into games of Rocket League, Escape From Tarkov, Minecraft, and several other games. 

For Destiny players on PC, this is an excellent community to try as a guest before officially joining, with a large range of players at every level to squad up with. Like other clans, the rules to join are simple, just be an active player, be respectful and keep gameplay clean.

Fearthewise

  • Platforms: PC/PSN
  • Discord: Yes
  • Purpose: General play + clan building
  • Members: 250+

Primarily a PlayStation clan, Fearthewise follows a loose play structure built around just having a good time. They aren’t focused on one thing in Destiny 2, but instead offer a place for anyone to bring their clan and grow it. You can even join and not join any of the associated clans and chat in their Discord or just squad up for a Strike or two. 

They do have a vetting process if you decide to join up officially, but other than that everything is just about having a good time.

7/8

Apexus Deft

  • Platforms: PC
  • Discord: Yes
  • Purpose: General play + end-game
  • Members: 6,400+

If you want to join a clan community that actually includes progression, Apexus Deft is a great option. With over 6,400 members in their Discord and at least 600 incredibly active players, you’ll always find someone to chat or join up with. The only requirement to be a part of this clan is to stay active on Discord regularly and remain semi-active in Destiny 2.

Now, the really interesting thing about their clan setup is the groupings they’ve created. They have a casual subset that requires no experience or skill. You’ll have the chance to be led by veteran members through end-game content and catch up with other players. If you want a challenge, you can then try out for the hardcore divisions by going through a Trials run with top players. If you make it, you then join the elite section of this clan that goes after world’s first Raid clears and other hardcore end-game content.

8/8

Shrouded Gaming Community

  • Platforms: Xbox/PC/PSN
  • Discord: Yes
  • Purpose: General play + multigame
  • Members: 6,000+

The Shrouded Gaming Community is one of the biggest Destiny 2 clans around. But it’s not just one of the top Destiny 2 clans — the Shrouded Gaming Community is an entire network of streamers and players that are active in a multitude of games. They currently have twenty-five active sub-clans across different platforms, run regular contests, highlight top-tier members and even have opportunities to apply for clan roles.

Basically, if you’re looking to join a clan that covers a number of games and is large enough to get a ton of guidance, this is it. It’s well organized beyond Destiny and features some excellent bonuses that you won’t find in every clan.
