Destiny 2 Guardian Games 2022: Start Time, Release Date, New Armor, and More


April 27, 2022

The Destiny 2 Guardian Games is set to return later this year, allowing Guardians everywhere to compete for glory as their favorite class. Once again Zavala and the vanguard will be pitting Guardians against each other to find out which class reigns supreme. Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans will go head-to-head in challenges that will test their bravery, skill, and resolve. If you’re new to Destiny and keen to know more, read on, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the next major Destiny 2 event.

What are the Guardian Games in Destiny?

The Guardian Games is yet another limited-time event in Destiny 2 where the three Guardian Classes (Titan, Warlock, and Hunter) compete against one another in an Olympics-like competition between the three classes.

Players will essentially need to complete activities (such as strikes, nightfalls, and more) – as well as more high-level goals (like gaining a certain amount of melee or primary kills) while completing activities. Doing so will earn players medals and whichever class has the most medals at the end of the event will be crowned the winners. To commemorate the achievement, a trophy will be displayed in the Tower all year long recognising the superior class who came out on top.

Who won the Guardian Games 2021?

The 2021 Guardian Games was won by the Hunters subclass, with Warlocks coming second and Titan’s finishing dead last.

Guardian Games 2022 Release Date and Start Time

Bungie has confirmed that the Destiny 2 Guardian Games event will start on May 3, 2022 and end on May 24. This was revealed in the March 17 ‘This Week At Bungie’ blogpost.

As a quick note, Bungie has indicated that dates are subject to change, and given the event will be coming towards the end of the Season, it’s plausible that a few things could get moved around.

Guardian Games 2022 Armor

20 April 2022 - It looks as though the new Guardian Games armor has leaked once again. This time it's a far better look with cleaner images. Have a look at the images below for a closer look.

A very blurry image of Guardian Games 2022 armor was shared by the DestinyBulletn Twitter account, but we’re not entirely sure where the image might have come from. It wasn’t included in the most recent TWAB, so maybe it’s from an in-game image we’ve missed. Either way, you can have a blurry look at the new armor, just below:

Guardian Games 2022 Rewards

27 April 2022 - It looks as though a new SMG called “The Title” will be available during Guardian Games 2022. This is a new Void energy SMG built on the Cold Front frame. Take a closer look on the tweet below.

At the time of writing Bungie hasn’t revealed any of the rewards players can earn in the 2022 Guardian Games, but we imagine it’ll be similar to the 2021 rewards. As a reminder, here’s what was on offer last year:

Guardians can earn several rewards through the course of Guardian Games, such as the Heir Apparent Exotic Machine Gun and catalyst, an Exotic Sparrow, Legendary class items, two emblems and two shaders. Eververse will have a new Guardian Games Universal Ornament Set with glowing class items, a new weapon ornament for Heir Apparent, sporting Exotic emotes, and more on offer.
