'Destiny 2' Kicks Off Guardian Games Cup Event

by Rainier on May 3, 2022 @ 4:48 p.m. PDT

Destiny 2 is a first-person action game that takes the player on an epic journey to defend humanity from annihilation.

Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.

In Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lay in ruins, occupied by a powerful new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion. Every player creates their own character called a "Guardian," humanity's chosen protectors. As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city's forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home.

Guardian Games returns to Destiny 2, encouraging Guardians everywhere to jump on their favorite class and go for glory.

Free for all players, this event sees Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans competing to claim the top step on the podium for their chosen class.

Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans will play in a variety of event activities to earn points for themselves and their class across several categories. Guardians returning from Savathûn’s Throne World will warm up in the new training playlist and head to the competitive strike playlist to earn Strike Medals and compete for weekly high scores. Both playlists also include solo options for those looking to work up a sweat. Players can also help their class by collecting Laurels simply by playing most PvE content during the event. Those who play can unlock rewards like the Heir Apparent Exotic Machine Gun and catalyst, Legendary SMG, the Exotic ship, and more.

Guardians looking to pick up some flair for their attire should visit Tess Everis, who will be selling podium-worthy pieces at Eververse. Also available to Guardians who light multiple Platinum Torches are the Guardian Games Tankard and the Guardian Games Medal, unlocked through Bungie Rewards.

At the end of each week, podium ceremonies will grant gold, silver, and bronze auras to each class based on their current standing. The winning class will be recognized at the Guardian Games Closing Ceremonies on May 24, along with a commemorative trophy displayed in the Tower for an entire year.

Guardian Games Cup and Direct Relief Charity Event

Alongside the Guardian Games event, players will cheer for their favorite streamers as they compete for Guardian Games glory while raising donations for humanitarian aid. Bungie has assembled 42 class fireteams from across 14 territories globally to participate in our first ever Guardian Games Cup – a friendly competition to see which team in the world has what it takes to sweep the medals and come out on top.
