Hone your skills and win glory in battle against other Guardians.
― In-game description

The Crucible is a competitive player-vs-player (PvP) multiplayer activity in Destiny. Light level advantages are disabled, so all players have a chance regardless of their or their opponents' Light levels.

Players can earn loot by completing Crucible matches.[1] However, in order to be eligible for rewards, a player must have obtained at least one kill.

Special and heavy ammo spawn in crates for most Crucible gametypes. Special ammo spawns after three minutes and then every two minutes afterwards. Heavy ammo spawns every five minutes, and Lord Shaxx will announce it in advance.[citation needed]

The Crucible is unlocked for all Guardians on a player's account once a Guardian reaches level 5 and speaks to Lord Shaxx.
