Vanguard Reputation is a type of Faction Reputation awarded by completing most of PvE activities in Destiny. High Vanguard Reputation ranks unlock Legendary items for purchase. (See below for a full list).
- Please note that if you equip Cloaks, Bonds or Marks from Dead Orbit, Future War Cult or New Monarchy, all the Vanguard Reputation points that you would earn will go to that particular faction.
How to Obtain
|Activity||No Class Item||Vanguard Class Item|
|Vanguard Bounty (2500 XP)||50||55|
|Vanguard Bounty (3000 XP)||65||71|
- Every Vanguard Rep Rank up after 3 earns the player a Vanguard Commendation.
Without the Weekly Nightfall Strike Bonus, you get around 250-400 Rep per hour.
With the the bonus (25% extra rep gain) you can obtain up to 600 Rep per hour. 25 Rep per VIP Patrol Mission
- Begin in the Steppes and look for for VIP Patrols Missions there.
Go to the Divide if no VIP Patrols is there
Get to Rocketyard if no VIP Patrols is there.
Return to Orbit and repeat process.
All VIP Patrol Missions in the Steppes take you to the Divide. All VIP Patrols Missions in The Divide make you stay in The Divide and ocassionally take you to The Rocketyard. All VIP Patrols missions in The Rocketyard make you stay in place.
Have a Event Timer on your phone or computer, I don't recommend doing events beyond those 3 zones.
To make far more effective, do this as a fireteam. With this technique, place 1 player in The Steppes, 1 in The Divide and 1 in Rocketyard. All players in the fireteam gets credit for each patrol, none of the players need to move around. You can pick up the Kill Everything and Shoot to Loot patrols.
