Destiny 2‘s second Guardian Games are upon us, bringing a spirit of competition between character classes to the game for the Olympics-like event. The event is similar to the one Bungie introduced last year, but some of the details about how it works have changed. The alterations can allow you to quickly and efficiently complete goals and earn rewards, if you know how to exploit them.
If you’re new to the Guardian Games, the whole affair can be a bit confusing. It introduces two new currencies–Laurels and Medals–that do specific things. You’ll have to bank a bunch of both in order to drive your class to victory and to unlock Heir Apparent, the event’s Exotic machine gun, and other rewards. Here’s what you need to know about the Guardian Games, including everything you can nab for competing in it.
How To Take Part In The Guardian Games
The Guardian Games are a free activity to all Destiny 2 players, so in order to have access to it, you need to complete the Cosmodrome introduction missions and unlock the Tower. Once you’ve done that, talk to Zavala and choose a class item for the character class you want to compete with in the Games. Make sure to equip that class item–it’s essential to how the Guardian Games works. More on that in a second.
