The Crucible is Destiny 2’s dedicated PvP game mode, providing players with a way to test their skills and Loadouts against other players of similar skill.
There is a good variety of game modes to choose from, with rotating casual game modes and a dedicated competitive 3v3 mode.
At the end of every Crucible match, regardless of whether it is casual or competitive, win or loss, players are rewarded with Glimmer, loot, Shaders, and Crucible Valor.
This lets casual players enjoy the game modes they want to play while competitive players can continue their grind in Glory game mode, each working towards increasing their Crucible Rank.
Gain enough Valor, and you will increase your Crucible Rank, rewarding you with additional gear and loot drops. You will want to continue increasing your Crucible Rank until you hit one of the Crucible Rank Milestones.
