Have You Seen the Days Without Incident Counter in Destiny 2?
You can change the counter yourself.
Ever since Destiny 1, Guardians have been searching for the fun little easter eggs and interactable pieces of content added to the game by developers. There are quite a few of these, but because they’re so minor, they never make headlines. That’s why today, I want to cover something that’s been doing the rounds in the community lately. It’s an easter egg I wasn’t aware of until this week.
If you head into the Hangar, there’s a counter on the wall that records the “Days Without Incident” in the Tower. Now, you’d think that this is a counter that simply goes up every single day. You’re right in one sense. The counter increases by one every 20-30 minutes. That’s the length of an in-game day/night cycle if you’re sat in the Tower. It makes sense and fits thematically. If anywhere needs a counter like this, it’s where all the heavy machinery is being worked on. I can’t imagine how many incidents they’ve had in the past. Let alone the Red War.
However, something you may not have known has been reported by GamesRadar. You can make the counter go down by one if you die in the Tower. It actually goes down by one every time a Guardian dies in this area of the game.
It’s such a tiny little easter egg, and most of you have probably known about it since the game launched. For others, like me, though, this is a brand new thing to watch. I can’t help but wonder at what point the counter will make it to double digits. Every time I’m in the Tower I see Guardians throwing themselves off of the edge. The poor counter can’t have too many opportunities to get that high.
Unfortunately, I think that reaching triple digits is going to be reserved for when this game’s player base finally dies off, or when Bungie makes it impossible to die in the Tower. Maybe we could all get together to avoid it going down and keep deaths to a minimum? That would be something.
Let us know if you were aware of this easter egg before today in the comments.
