Each year the Destiny 2 community prepares to clash in the Guardian Games. Titans, Warlocks, and Hunters all face off across a multi-week contest to figure out who exactly is the greatest class of them all. All the protestations of Bungie hating one class go out the window as everyone tries to get as OP as possible in order to bring home the win.
When does Guardian Games 2022 start and end?
The Guardian Games 2022 will start on May 3 and will end on May 24, giving players exactly three weeks to rack up as many points as possible and get the win over their fellow Guardians. The winners will be decided by whichever class deposits those hard-earned medallions at the Podium in the Tower. Medallions can be earned by completing certain activities and mini-quests called Contender Cards and Platinum Cards.
Harder in-game activities will reward higher-value medallions, so players who dive into Raids, Dungeons, and other endgame activities will be learning plenty of points for their teams. Players can also earn Strike Medals within the Guardian Games playlists by performing specific feats during their activities.
There are two Guardian Games playlists: Training and Competitive. It is important to know the best times to play in each playlist:
- On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, the place to be is the Training playlist. Here you can earn practice scores (the combined score of your entire fireteam).
- On Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, it’s time to get sweaty in the Competitive playlist. This is where you’ll earn exciting rewards.
- Players can earn buffs in the Recreational, Training, and Competitive playlists by ranking bronze, silver, gold, or platinum— these last until the next weekly reset.
- You can use these buffs in the regular Vanguard Ops playlist.
