Factions are NPC alignment groups that determine the socio-political structure in The City in Destiny. Factions allow players to purchase specific legendary weapons and armor, but only after they earn a certain amount of faction reputation. Each faction requires a player have acquired a reputation of level 2 to purchase Legendary Armor, and level 3 to purchase legendary weapons. Each faction also offers emblems in exchange for Crucible marks.

The default factions are the Vanguard for PvE, and the Crucible for PvP. Currently there are only 3 active factions ( Dead Orbit, Future War Cult and New Monarchy) . Osiris and the Seven Seraphs are no longer factions in Destiny. However, they both still exist as the Warlock Osiris's Cult and the Seraphim Vault, home to Rasputin.

Clans are independent from factions so players need not worry about their NPC allegiances affecting their multiplayer experience.
