45 Destiny 2 Content Creators Received A Fun Mystery Gift While Data Miners Sell Code For Free Emblem

It looks like there's a bit of "oh, this is fun", and "oh, well, that could have been fun" happening for Destiny 2 fans right now. The fun bit is that Bungie apparently sent out some Season of the Splicer-themed survival kits to 45 content creators. The kits arrived as mystery boxes with a crate inside. In the crate there was a Destiny logo lamp, a cassette player (the portable kind), a cassette containing the Season of the Splicer soundtrack, a UV flashlight, and a note that can only be read with said light. The note effectively just informed the recipients that this is their survival kit.

Okay, so once open it wasn't all that mysterious, but it's still pretty nifty.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Destiny 2 team apparently had plans to offer a "Spicy Ramen Coupon" emblem as a free gift to players on Bungie Day, but (honestly, as expected) data miners have already come across it. That, on its own probably doesn't seem too bad. Stuff gets datamined all the time but apparently the code for the emblem is being sold to other players, and the Bungie team isn't happy about it.

Since the tweet above also asks players to stop spoiling content in general, players have been pointing out that some of the content in question is simply available through the public API intended for third parties to work with, which takes away from the spoilers argument. That said, selling the content is kind of uncool. Although...perhaps players should be wary about buying stuff like this anyway. Unless there's a good reason to pay money for something that was going to be given to you for free anyway.
