The new expansion for Destiny, House of Wolves hasn’t been out for more than a day and players are already uncovering some hidden treats. Throughout various areas of the expansion, players have discovered mysterious small coins that don’t seem to do anything, yet.
Where Are The Coins?
The players who discovered the coins have already uploaded videos to YouTube with their location.
User Fohacidal — from the video above — was one of the first to discover the coins. As you can see, there’s not much you can do but look at them. The game doesn’t offer an interaction option, so you cannot collect them like the dead ghosts.
A closeup of the coin reveals that it has the House of Judgement symbol engraved on it, which is one of the factions from the game.
Here’s another tutorial video that shows you where to find the coin, should you want to go looking for it.
In the video above, Sinavonick shows us the location of a second coin that can be found within the Queen’s Ransom mission.
What Are the Coins For?
We don’t know yet what the coins do, or what they are for. Bungie previously hid coins around the Tower — seven of them in total — and held a low-profile competition to see who could find all of them first. The player that discovered them all purportedly received an exclusive in-game emblem from the Bungie team. Hopefully, they’re still rocking that emblem now for bragging rights.
Anyway, the assumption is that the first player to find all of the hidden coins in House of Wolves will end up with some cool, exclusive loot. There’s always the chance that Bungie will activate their true use in a later update somehow. What do you think?
Excuse me, I have some coins to go search for.
