Intergalactic sci-fi video game Destiny is one of the few titles to maintain loyal fan-base dedicated to playing on a regular basis years after launch. Following it’s long-awaited sequel Destiny 2’s release last month, we’re taking a look at all the latest Destiny merchandise. So whether you’re a Warlock, Titan or Hunter, we’ve got something for you. Or perhaps you are seeking a Destiny gift for a fan in the run-up to Christmas, in which case, we’ve got you covered. Let’s take a guided look at all the Destiny series merchandise and gifts online currently.
One of the most highly anticipated video games of all time, the original Destiny was released in 2014 by Bungie, the lauded creators of Halo. It promised to deliver an entirely new gaming experience, and generated a ton of heat on announcement. Whilst Destiny did go on to sell a remarkably large amount of units, it was a divisive title among both fans and critics. Some praised the game-play and atmosphere, others were dissatisfied with the amount of content in the launch package.
However the game established a dedicated fan-base and pushed out millions of units globally. Over the years Destiny has proved itself to be a fulfilling experience with a near-constant stream of content being added every few months. Since launch, developer Bungie made frequent updates with patches, fixes and game-play balances to make the experience immersive for each and every player; veteran or newcomer. Now Destiny fans are enjoying the latest Destiny 2, which has been released on PC (a first for the series) as well as on Xbox One and PS4.
The franchise’s first fully-fledged sequel Destiny 2 promised to deliver an experience that would delight fans of the original Destiny, whilst encouraging a whole new batch of players to join the fold. Destiny 2’s initial announcement trailer featured a familiar face from the original game – Cayde-6, a robot Vanguard voiced by Nathan Fillion – and gave a brief glimpse of iconic location ‘The Tower’ under attack from ‘The Cabal’ (a group of enemies from the first game). Now you’ve been briefed on the latest Destiny news, let’s take a closer look at the merchandise available currently. There’s a real range, spanning everything from candles to onesies, to gorgeous journals and super-cool console accessorises.
Official Destiny Planet Scented Candles
Feel and smell individual planets from the Destiny world with these chic official Destiny candles, which would look perfectly at home in a Spa (or space bunker). They combine scents like vanilla, cedarwood and jasmine. We’re particularly curious to take a sniff of The Dreadnaught, which has a unique “Wormspore” aroma. The folk behind the game developed these, using what they imagined each individual planet would feel and smell like forged from Earthly materials.
If you’re looking to push the ship out, you can even buy this beautiful “Ghost” holder for your planet-themed candles. Your Ghost, which was voiced by Tyrion Lannister (or Game of Throne’s actor Peter Dinklage) in the original Destiny, acts like a personal robot helper that guides you throughout the game.
Official Destiny Ghost Holder and candles in the UK & US (International Shipping): From £39.99

Featuring full-colour concept artwork from a variety of known graphic designers and illustrators, it covers the most iconic moments and characters across the Destiny series. A perfect gift for someone games or art development inclined, it additionally shows a unique insight into the process of creating art for Destiny.
Destiny 2 Faction Magnets Pack
Define your faction with these cute little magnets, perfect for your fridge or your reactor core. The set features three “crucible” factions, which players must complete missions with to build reputation with, and the Vanguard.

Destiny PS4 Accessories
KontrolFreek Destiny CQC Signature Edition Sticks for PS4
For those not already familiar with KontrolFreek’s range of thumbstick add-ons, these are little rubber grips that you can attach to the end of your gamepad’s thumbsticks, designed to give you a slight advantage when it comes to aiming during Destiny. Reportedly, KontrolFreek worked in conjunction with Bungie itself to design this Destiny-themed version of the CQC Signature Edition set of sticks, which feature the Destiny insignia emblazoned on both sticks. In addition to being designed for advanced gamers to gain an additional advantage on the battlefield, the KontrolFreek sticks also help young gamers (or those with smaller hands) get into the action easier.
Destiny DualShock 4 light bar sticker
An alternative and slightly more subtle way to customise your DualShock 4 controller to showcase your fanaticism is with a light bar sticker. These things attach, as the title may suggest, over the light bar of your DualShock 4 and restrict the glowing blue (or yellow, or green, or red) light to a bespoke shape. In this case, you can customise your controller to display a glowing Destiny insignia for a handful of change. Not bad if that’s your kind of thing!
Destiny Xbox One Accessories
KontrolFreek Destiny CQC Signature Edition Sticks for Xbox One
Similar to the PS4 version above, the KontrolFreek Destiny CQC Signature Edition thumbstick add-ons are officially licensed by Bungie and designed to give players an advantage when playing in frantic online battles. This version is specifically designed for use with Xbox One controllers of all kinds, including the Xbox One Elite controller, if need be.
Destiny PC Accessories
Destiny 2 Razer Death Adder Elite Gaming Mouse

Destiny 2 Infinity Gaming PC
This super advanced and pleasently glowing PC from Cyber Power is perfectly rigged for playing Destiny 2.

In one of the most interesting examples of unique officially licensed merchandise, Destiny has its own line of notebooks, journals and sketchbooks. Whether you’re the creative type or you just want everyone in your business meeting to know you’re a Destiny fan, Bungie and co. have got you covered.
Destiny Deluxe Hardcover Sketchbook
For the artists among you, this beautifully put together deluxe hardcover sketchbook lets you hone your craft across 192 blank pages. Featuring a beautifully designed front cover featuring artwork from the Rise of Iron DLC add-on, it’s certain to catch admiring glances!
Destiny Ruled Journal
The most simplistic of all the journals on offer, this ruled journal features over 150 pages of ruled paper along with exclusive concept art from the Destiny series, all bound in a subtle yet strikingdeep blue hardcover.
Destiny: Guardian’s Journal
One part writing journal and one part artbook, the Destiny Guardian’s Journal features over 150 ruled pages to write to your heart’s content on, while the remaining 42 pages feature some previously unseen concept art from the Destiny series, including pieces representing the Guardians, the Traveler, and more. All bound together in a deluxe hardcover.
This special edition ‘Strength and Sacrifice’ Titan hoodie is currently available to order. With this one, you’ll be proudly wearing your class allegiance quite literally across your chest, so be prepared to defend your in-game choices to other believers.
Alternatively, if you’re the Hunter type, you can get yourself one of these green and black hoodies with the Hunter insignia proudly emblazoned across the front.
Of course, if neither of the above hoodies did it for you and you wouldn’t class yourself as either a Hunter or a Titan player that must mean only one thing – you’re all about the Warlock life. That means you can pick yourself up one of these black and grey hoodies with orange trim and arguably be the most stylish of the bunch.
This rather curious Destiny onesie is just perfect for, you guessed it, lounging about and playing Destiny 2 (and saving the cosmos, obviously)
Destiny Action Figures
It took a little longer than most people expected but Destiny finally has its own line of action figures based on various class builds and non-player characters in the game. The latest batch is available to order right now and includes a Vault of Glass Titan, an Iron Banner Hunter, a King’s Fall Warlock and a deluxe figure of Lord Saladin himself.
Destiny Mugs, Wallets and Accessories
Destiny Titan Wallet, Hunter Wallet and Warlock Wallet Bifold
No matter what class you choose to play as in-game, you can show your allegiance in the real world with one of these officially licensed Destiny wallets. Titan, Warlock and Hunter are each represented with their own bifold wallet with its own distinct colour scheme and insignia. Which side are you on?
Destiny Musterbrand Knitted Scarf
If you’re the type to want to stay warm, represent your favourite gaming franchise and look pretty stylish all at the same time, you’re going to want to grab yourself one of these Musterbrand Titan knitted scarves. Although, given that it bears the Titan insignia, that may rule out two-thirds of readers at this point.
Destiny ‘Fallen’ Mug
For those with specific tastes in both alliances and warm drinks, this Destiny mug representing The Fallen will make any occasion worth raising a glass (or a mug) to.

Destiny Official Digital Soundtrack
However you feel about the game itself, it’s nigh-impossible to deny that it has one of the most impressive scores of any video game in recent years. From composers, Michael Salvatori, C Paul Johnson and Martin O’Donnell (who is best known for his work on the Halo franchise) put together and recorded some truly striking pieces, with a full orchestra to boot. Not only that, but the soundtrack features a brand new song composed by Paul McCartney and Martin O’Donnell exclusively for Destiny. If you’ve got a Beatle on your soundtrack, you know you’re doing something right.
