Bungie cares about your gains, Destiny (opens in new tab) players. As part of the impending update (opens in new tab) set to go live on April 12, the studio is looking to improve the rate at which you earn faction reputation - thus making it easier to earn special rewards from various vendors scattered about the Tower.

"Your time is valuable, so we’ve increased the amount of reputation you’ll gain by completing the activities you enjoy," senior designer Victoria Dollbaum writes in a new blog post (opens in new tab). To that end, Bungie has beefed up rewards for Heroic Strikes, Crucible matches, Patrol missions, and the Prison of Elders. You can see the full breakdown below:

Heroic Strikes120 Vanguard reputation, 60 reputation with your aligned Faction

Crucible90 Crucible reputation, an additional bonus for winning, 45 reputation with your aligned Faction
