Soon you’ll be able to treat yourself to an official Destiny 2 toaster – no, I’m serious. Bungie revealed in its latest weekly update blog that you can preorder it on the store right now for $84.99 USD / €87.99 if you fancy it – you’ll even get an emblem to let other players in-game know you’ve got one.
There is a story behind the toaster, mind you. Back in June 2020, Bungie said it’d look into making one if the community raised $777,777.77 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during one of Bungie’s livestreams supporting the Gaming Community Expo (GCX). Well, the community raised more than $800,000, so Bungie is sticking to its word. On top of that, 10% of profits from sales of the Destiny Toaster is going to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, too.
But why a toaster? “Get that bread” has become somewhat of a community meme centred on getting god-rolled loot or the best static roll weapons the game has to offer, like raid exotics or pinnacle weapons.
“Yes, it will actually toast a Tricorn onto your bread,” Bungie says. “Yes, it comes with a free sandwich container so you can keep your food safe during your quests. Oh, and it comes with the fancy Burnt Edges in-game emblem.”
The rest of the blog post goes over topics such as Prime Gaming rewards and the upcoming Grandmaster Nightfalls, which offer better loot to help you climb to a greater level.
