UPDATE ONE: Destiny players will get set rewards from the recent Taken King Crimson Days event, following fan feedback that the drop rate has been pretty low for Ghosts.
The number of Ghosts awarded has not been what Bungie expected when building the new Valentine's Day content so the studio are now putting together a plan to help everyone earn guaranteed 320 light Ghosts.
A recent post from community manager David Dague explained: "If you've already put up the good fight in seven matches, you're on our list.
"If you want in on this, you still have time to earn your reward. Crimson Days comes to an end with the Weekly Reset on February 16th.
"Grab a partner and throw down. We'll have something sweet for you when all is said and done - whether you win or lose."
Here's all the information you need to get everything you want from the Crimson Days event:
- After the event is over, Bungie delivers Ghosts to the Postmaster
- Anyone who has competed in seven matches will receive one
- You had to actually compete though - no suicide runs will count
- Your Ghost will be Chocolate or Crimson - the odds are even
- 320 Light will be guaranteed - the odds are totally in your favor
- Packages will be addressed by account, not character
- Qualifying players will receive their Ghost by February 23rd

Fans of the epic space shooter have been complaining of a lack of fresh content in the new year; however the Crimson Days event has arrived and looks set to be followed by new endgame challenges.
The Destiny Update in Spring will include new gear and a significant Light increase, although it is still unclear how these changes will affect the game and whether the new PvE challenges will be level-capped.
Bungie have set out a very rough roadmap for fans to follow, new content is coming for the Taken King in the coming months, with community manager David Dague explaining: “We’ll be plotting more specific waypoints as time goes on.
“Right now, there are hundreds of passionate people at Bungie working to turn the plan for Destiny’s future into the adventures, dangerous enemies, and glittering treasures that await.

“We’re also gathering up details for spring as the team begins to lock it in.”
No firm date was given for its arrival and it is still unclear just how long fans will have to wait following the conclusion of Crimson Doubles.
“Prior to the holiday break we mentioned a second, larger update slated for Spring,” Dague added.
“That content release will feature a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players seeking some more fun experiences and replayability.”
2016 has proved a rather turbulent year for Destiny, high-level management changes and a lack of clarity on when to expect new paid-for or free content has left fans somewhat in the dark.
It was only last week that many found out that 2016 would see the release of a major Destiny Year Two expansion, rather than the expected standalone sequel.
Activision confirmed the news and described it as large, probably putting it in similar size to the Taken King, while also confirming that Destiny 2 would be released in 2017.
Dague touched on it briefly, adding: “The team is focused on delivering a large expansion later this year, and a full Destiny sequel in 2017.”
