Destiny 2: Which is The Fastest Sparrow?

If you’ve been a long-time Destiny player, then you must already know that sparrows in this game don’t refer to birds nor will this article help you unlock our feathery friends.

Sparrows in Destiny 2 are all about speed, power, and action.

These awesome hover bikes are coveted by players because they can give your Guardian a lift and allow you to travel at much faster speeds than on foot.

Today’s big question is: Which sparrow is the fastest of them all?

What is the Fastest Sparrow in Destiny 2?

The S-34 Ravensteel is the fastest sparrow in the game.

The S-34 is a legendary sparrow that was given by Bungie to all players who hit Light Level 30 before the Taken King expansion was released.

“The Sparrow is your pen, speed your ink, the open road your blank page. You are a poet of motion.” If you want to know more about the sparrows in Destiny 2, then you are at the right place.

The S-34 Ravensteel is a 160 speed sparrow with 40 boost making it one of the fastest sparrows in the game.

It has 2 other bonuses which are Quick Brake and Safe Thrusters which makes it pretty ideal for going full speed and sudden stops.

Overall, the S-34 is one of the very rare, very fast, and very best sparrows in Destiny 2 in terms of raw speed.

What is the Best Boost Sparrow?

The XV0 “Timebreaker” and S-13 “Graverobber”.

The S-34 Ravensteel may have the highest base speed. But if we consider adding the boosts into the equation, then these Tier 6 Legendary sparrows can break the limits.

They have a lower base speed of 150 but they have a boost of 60. You can also equip the Overdrive upgrade to reach even greater speeds.

These are the sparrows with the highest caliber in the game and they can definitely be faster than the S-34 Ravensteel overall.

What Are Sparrows in Destiny 2?

If you are new to Destiny 2 and want to know more about sparrows this is the article to read.

Sparrows in Destiny 2 are land-based vehicles which are a lot like hoverbikes.

They can be used as a means of transportation and mobility for your Guardian.

Each Guardian has at least one personalized Sparrow stowed away in your ship ready and waiting for you to summon it at any time.

How to Summon Your Sparrow in Destiny 2?

You can summon your sparrow anytime from your ship by activating your Ghost and holding down the upper face button until it spawns.

Are Sparrows Equipment?

Sparrows are like Ghosts, so yes, they are considered as equipment. This means that you can equip and use them, even the Exotic models without worrying about your armor and weapons.

How Fast Can Sparrows Go?

According to the Destiny Fandom Wiki, Sparrows can go up to 220 kilometers per hour, but not in actual gameplay. 

But now we’ll actually share a secret that very few Destiny 2 players know about. 

Did you know that there is a sparrow that can reach around 200kph speed? It is also known as the “Glitched Sparrow”.

What is the Glitched Sparrow?

The Glitched sparrow is a sparrow that moves unusually faster than its stats.

It refers to the Always on Time Sparrow which is an Exotic Sparrow with 160 speed but is actually way faster than any other sparrow in actual gameplay.

Here is an example footage of the Always on Time Sparrow being faster than another sparrow with the same 160 speed.

We don’t know if this is a bug or a glitch but the Always on Time sparrow is crazy fast.

It really lives up to its name and also its motto; “Every second counts”.  You can acquire the On Time sparrow by purchasing it on the tower in exchange for the following:

  • 1 Exotic Cipher
  • 150,000 Glimmer
  • 240 Spoils of Conquest
  • 2 Ascendant Shards

Speed and Style

Sparrows are one of most wanted equipment in the game.

Not only can you use them to navigate better and faster, riding an awesome sparrow can also be a fashion statement.

So get your own sparrow and ride it in speed and style!
