Destiny 2 Guardian Games armor items, release time and Weekly Reset update

The 2 Guardian Games are kicking off today and will be available to everyone on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The main reward will be some shiny new Guardian Games armor, although much will be decided by which class you’re part of. As revealed earlier this month by Bungie, the Guardian Games pits Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks against each other in a new competition.

Players will need to visit Eva Levante to pick up a class item to wear during competition.

Medals will be awarded to those battling it out daily in chosen game modes and these will be key to unlocking the best loot.

A message from Bungie explains: “Your entry into the competition begins with a visit to Eva Levante.

“Each Guardian will receive a class item to adorn while taking part in competition. Bronze, silver, and gold medals will be available to earn daily, each of which will focus on specific game modes.

“To earn medals, equip your new class item, defeat enemies, pick up laurels on the battlefield, and advance your quest for the medals you desire.”

Bungie has also made sure that the Guardian Games will not be dominated by just one class, as per the population.

“We fully acknowledge that class populations are a little lopsided. Hunters are so fabulous with their capes that there are indeed more of them than Warlocks or Titans.

“To help offset this (so Hunters don’t steal the show every day), medals will be weighted slightly per class to maintain an even playing field.

“We aren’t fiddling with the numbers to force wins on alternate classes – Hunters could still take this entire thing if they put enough effort in.”


Depending on your class, you will receive an item like a Cloak, Mark, or Bond which will update to reflect what placement your team has taken.

If your class triumphs, your armor item will update to show a colour like Gold, while second and third place will turn to silver, or shameful bronze.

Whichever Class ends up the overall winner will see their class item change to the correct colour depending on the class placement.

There will also be Daily Destiny 2 Quests to complete to unlock a new Exotic Ghost Shell, as well as a new weapon to earn.

“As an example, if Titans took the “W” for day one, their Mark will update with a wonderful gold sigil,” Bungie explains.

“With Warlocks in second and Hunters in third, their class items would be updated to feature silver and bronze, respectively.

“At the end of the event, your daily placements will be combined for a final score. Depending on your team’s standings, your class items will be locked to their respective placements for the remainder of the year.

“If you’re looking for more ways to represent your class, Eva has you covered. Each week, you’ll be offered a free quest to earn an Exotic Ghost Shell, one themed to each Guardian class. Complete this quest every week to collect all three.”


Bungie has confirmed that the Destiny 2 Guardian Games will begin after the Weekly Reset has been completed.

This means that the Guardian Games will be available to start at 6pm, BST. It should also be noted that gamers will need to update their game with patch 2.8.1.

Below is a list of issues that will be resolved when Guardian Games and Update 2.8.1 becomes available on April 21:

  • Ward of Dawn will now correctly generate Orbs of Light.
  • Fully upgrading any bunker will now unlock the associated Warmind Security Triumph.
  • Interacting with the statue of Sjur Eido for the Wish Ender quest in the Shattered Throne will no longer crash the game.
  • The Level 32 PDS upgrade can now be used to clear the bunker by any character.
  • Rasputin’s Daily Seraph Weapon can now be claimed on any character.
  • Players who've completed the Forsaken campaign will find The Lawless Frontier lore book entry "By Thy Tongue Be Damned" completed and available to claim.
  • Friends listed in a player's Roster should no longer show up as black nameplates with zero Power.
