Eyes up, Guardian, it’s that time of year again. The Guardian Games are returning to Destiny 2 where the Vanguard ceases fire with the Cabal Empress Caiatle to get into the friendly competitive spirit. Friendly as that may be, we still want to crush those Titans. Kidding. Mostly.
Just like every year, this is a free event for all players and it kicks off next week on April 20. The games will run until May 9 with the banners for each class raised as the competition begins.
Last year, Titans absolutely creamed Hunters and Warlocks. Embarrassingly so, and as a Warlock main, I am personally asking to please get your act together so we can take home the W.
Just like last time, every week will give Guardians a chance to win gold, silver, or bronze auras that will last through the duration of the seven-day period. The class that wins at the end of the event will be recognized during the Guardian Games Closing Ceremonies taking place between May 7 – May 9.
But what about the rewards? The winners will earn the Heir Apparent Exotic Machine Gun (with its Catalyst), an Exotic Sparrow, Legendary class items, a pair of shaders, and two emblems.
Glowing is pretty too, so you can rep your class with more pride than you may feel with the special Guardian Games Universal ornament set, plus a new weapon ornament for Heir Apparent and new Exotic emotes. Take a look at all of the rewards with the slideshow below:
