Destiny Faction Weapons, Shaders and Ships List

Destiny Faction Weapons, Shaders and Ships List by Debo37

If you’ve reached the endgame, you have probably figured out that those Faction vendors in the tower don’t sell everything their faction has available. I’ve never seen a good list of absolutely everything belonging to each Faction, so I’m consolidating it all into this post.

To get Faction items that are not sold by the Vendor directly, you must rank up the Faction to level 3 or beyond – upon each rank-up, you will get a Postmaster package potentially containing any of the following items listed under that Faction below. In addition, you can occasionally get Faction weapons from Rare or Legendary Engrams, or from the Weekly Nightfall as rewards.


Weapons listed in BOLD text can be acquired from the Faction representative in the Tower. However, the perks on those “vendor weapons” are the same for all Destiny players – to get different perks on a weapon the vendor sells, you must obtain it from a random source – a rank-up package, an Engram, or a Nightfall reward.

Also interesting to note: Future War Cult does not have an Auto Rifle, while Dead Orbit and New Monarchy do not have a Pulse Rifle. Thus, each Faction has 8 weapons.

Each Faction has 4 Faction-specific Shaders that can ONLY be acquired randomly through Postmaster Faction rank-up packages. You CANNOT acquire them through purchase, so you’re at the mercy of RNG if you want one of these. If you wish to check out what a certain Shader would look like on your Guardian, DestinyTracker has a great tool for doing just that.

Each Faction has 1 Faction-specific Ship that can ONLY be acquired randomly through Postmaster Faction rank-up packages. You CANNOT acquire them through purchase, so you’re at the mercy of RNG if you want one of these sweet and super-rare loading screen flairs.

Note that there are TONS of ships coded into the game – and several of them seem Faction-themed. At this point in time, however, there are only 3 Faction ships confirmed to exist – some players have obtained them after the launch of The Dark Below. The 3 confirmed ships follow, and while more ships are certainly in the Destiny database, their release has not yet come to pass.

So that about wraps it up for Faction weapons, shaders, and ships. If I missed anything or made any errors, feel free to correct me in the comments. If not, feel free to discuss/show off the coolest Faction-related items you’ve snagged thus far! Hopefully this guide clears up the confusion surrounding the process for getting Faction weapons, and the controversies all over the place about just how many Faction shaders and ships there really are.

TL;DR: Factions have cool weapons, shaders, and ships. If you need something else to grind, give Factions a shot.
