The spirit of competition is coming to Destiny 2 and for once it’s not about PvP. OK, it will likely involve a bit of PvP, but ultimately the upcoming Guardian Games event will see which of the game’s three classes are the best.
Between Tuesday, April 21st, and Monday, May 11th, all players of the shooter will be able to speak with Eva Levante to get daily challenges for points on the scoreboard as well as earn Laurels in activities for more points.
In the short-term, rewards for taking part include daily reward packages, a new Exotic machine gun, and metallic class items that change to bronze, silver, or gold depending on where the class stands on the leaderboard. In the long-term, the class that has the most points by the end of the event will have a permanent reminder of their win displayed in the Tower for the rest of the year, along with their metallic items being locked to either bronze, silver, or gold depending on that class’ finishing place.
Naturally, there are other goodies available for players like new Sparrows, ships, and emotes through the Eververse in-game store, and the Bungie Rewards program is feeling the space Olympic spirit with a box of physical schwag when players complete the weekly “On Your Laurels” quest.
