Destiny 2's showcase was jam-packed with information regarding the short and long-term future of the MMOFPS developed by Bungie, as it introduced our first official look at the upcoming The Witch Queen expansion while also giving us more teasers for content we can expect to see before 2022.

One of the most exciting aspects of the showcase was the unveiling of a special event commemorating Bungie's 30th anniversary, which will bring a plethora of content to the FPS as a result.

From old fan-favourite weapons making a return, armour, and guns from past Bungie titles, and even brand-new activities, the 30th Anniversary event will be stuffed with content for Guardians to sink their teeth into.

Let's walk you through everything you need to know about Destiny 2's Bungie 30th Anniversary event.
