Destiny 2 Twitch drops are a great way to get some extra goodies as a reward for your viewership, so long as you have them active. Destiny 2 has a major event coming up with the Final Shape showcase, the next expansion that is set to close this chapter of the game.

Twitch drops will be active during the showcase, allowing players to snag a swanky new emblem for watching along. Here is everything you need to know about Destiny 2 Twitch drops ahead of the Final Shape showcase.
