Bungie is bringing back the Guardian Games for 2021! The Destiny 2 Guardian Games 2021 start date is set for April 20, and as players can expect, there are rewards, prestige and more at stake. Check out the trailer and changes coming to this year’s event.
Destiny 2 Guardian Games 2021 Info:
- Bronze: 1 Point
- Silver: 2 Points
- Gold: 5 Points
- Platinum: 15 Points
We still have to account for different class population, so this year the class that comes in third place each day gets a permanent 10% bonus on scoring going forward.
NEW GUARDIAN GAMES PLAYLIST
Another new addition to this year’s event is the Guardian Games Strikes Playlist. This is like the standard Vanguard Strikes Playlist but will group players together by class. This feeds into the Laurel collecting mechanic where players have a chance at bonus Laurels when they pick up a Laurel generated by a player of the same class.
This new playlist will have gameplay modifiers added based on the previous day’s class standing. Classes will get a beneficial modifier tied to gold, silver, and bronze placement.
- Gold: Health, shields, and recovery are increased. Kinetic weapons deal more damage.
- Silver: Melee abilities recharge faster. Elemental damage increased from Guardian sources. More Heavy ammo available.
- Bronze: Grenade abilities deal more damage and recharge much faster. Elemental damage increased from Guardian sources.
||Combatant melee attacks deal more damage.||Combatant melee attacks deal significantly more damage.|
|Warlock||Incoming damage increased while airborne.||Incoming damage significantly increased while airborne.|
|Hunter||Radar is disabled.||Radar is disabled and combatants don’t flinch when damaged.|
You will receive a medal case from Eva to store your hardware until you are ready to visit the podium in the Tower to bank them for your team. Once you have the maximum medals for a certain type in your case, make sure you go turn them as any more earned for that type will be lost. Turning in medals will give you a chance at receiving an event package depending on the medal type.
This year we are introducing a new way to earn points for your team called Contender Cards. You will be able to pick these up from Eva in exchange for Laurels and can have one active at any given time. Completing objectives in strikes, Crucible, and Gambit will grant a Gold Medal upon completion.There is also a special Platinum Contender Card that will focus on completing objectives in Nightfalls, Survival, and Trials. This will be the only way to earn Platinum Medals. Completing a Platinum Card will earn you All-Star status and a special reward at the next podium ceremony.Make sure you complete your Platinum Contender Card before daily reset on Friday if you want to lock in your All-Star status for the weekend.
Every weekend there will be a special ceremony where you will be able show off a glow from your class item depending on your class’ standing that week.
- Third place receives a bronze glow.
- Second place receives a silver glow.
- First place receives a gold glow.
- All-Stars receive a platinum glow.
