To show just how special Reddick was to the community, many fans of Destiny 2 have begun to gather around Commander Savala in-Game to pay tribute to the actor (thanks The Loadout).

As can be seen in the social media posts from both Twitter and Reddit below, many players have taken to simply kneeling around Commander Savala to show their respect.
