    With the release of Destiny 2 for PC right around the corner it’s time to officially announce the Angry Army PC Clan for Destiny 2. Now PC members of the AJSA community can join forces and tackle the challenges of Destiny 2 under a single Clan Banner. Consoles do not feel left out, as for over a month you’ve been setting a very high bar by building two large separate clans, completely all of the Clan Seasons, flying through the Nightfalls, and conquering the Leviathan Raid. While the game will be setting the challenge for the PC Division, the PS4 and XB1 Division have set the feats… up for the call to action?
    All links to each Divisions Destiny 2 clan will be below.
