Hey guys! It’s been a while since I’ve posted some Destiny update and gameplay, today, I’ll be talking about the all-new Sparrow Racing League(SRL).
The SRL features seven new sparrows, three elemental, three trickster new sparrows, and one normal legendary sparrow. Six of those sparrows, including the all-new elemental sparrows, are to be bought from Eververse with silvers. You cannot choose your sparrow as well, so I might suggest finishing the quests before you buy something new. They also updated the hotrod year 1 sparrow, and allows you to do tricks in that sparrow. Only selected sparrows are allowed to do tricks with. The new sparrows except the snowscream, and the hotrod year 1 sparrow.
In my own experience, I got a loot of this new legendary sparrow, the pink colored sparrow. Which allows me to do tricks and flips when I’m in the air. It also has an enhanced handling unlike the other sparrows. The snowscream however, it has an enhanced handling but a lower boost than the sparrow you can get from upgrading your rare sparrow.
The quests are quite basic and easy to do. I managed to finish the “sparrow racing” quest line with my two characters in just 5 hours of playing, with breaks of course. I even played mayhem clash and rift in those times and I still managed to finish off my quest and bounties. The hard part is, hitting the gates properly when you’re in the top two. Being first makes it easier to avoid being pushed off the cliff, but you still need to watch out for more gunfire from the enemies. Being second makes you more vulnerable to other players’ push while being shielded by the first player from the mobs in the track. If you’re quick at the gates(like me), you’ll be able to finish off the quest in like an hour or two.
The reward from the quest line of “Sparrow Racing” is quite random. I got a sparrow toolkit from my Hunter and was rewarded with the new pink sparrow. While my Titan got a Custom horn toolkit, which is pretty dumb and good at the same time. Dismantling a legendary horn doesn’t give you anything at all, so be sure not to dismantle your legendary horn except for the happy horn. The chances of getting a sparrow toolkit is around 45% on your first try. Few of my friends got a sparrow toolkit as well after finishing the quest with me while most of them got the custom hornkit. Getting the elemental sparrow is quite random as well, one of my friend who bought a sparrow got the arcstream right away, while it only guaranteed a random sparrow from the new quests and a possible content of the tron like sparrow that has orange neon linings on the sides.
The other toolkits like the racing toolkit, gives you a random legendary armor that would aid you in the race with its special perks. While you can also get legendary armors in the rewards, the racing toolkit gives you better armor where you can also use your shaders with. The “Circuit” armor is not affected by the shader, so be sure to wear the whole outfit so it wouldn’t look awkward.
Check out the video below, it’s my second character. Winning means you’re on the top three, while finishing the races means you passed the finish line which is pretty basic, unless there’s this racer(like me) who speeds up at last moment and wins selfishly.
I felt so bad that my friend finished on the sixth while they didn’t finish it all. So if you’re looking for finishing like this, do so, but I suggest waiting for other players before passing the finish line. It could lead to rage quit for other players and others might report you as well.
Happy racing to the Destiny community!
