Bungie will be ending its latest Xur and Trials of Osiris event and replacing it with the Guardian Games straight after the Destiny 2 Weekly Reset.
The good news is that there is still plenty of time to do everything you need before the latest activities end.
Each Tuesday, rituals and activities have their progression and rewards reset, and Bungie also chooses this time to release new content.
The development team also takes servers offline regularly on Tuesdays; however, this week’s maintenance will not affect Guardians.
The Destiny 2 Weekly Reset is always locked in for 6pm BST, which is when the next event kicks off on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The Guardian Games returns after the Weekly Reset, which will be available from April 20 and May 11.
Guardian Games is an event for all Destiny 2 players to celebrate their favourite class as they compete against one another to see whose class reigns supreme.
The winning team will have bragging rights, as well as a commemorative statue on display in the Tower for the entire year.
As confirmed by Bungie, Titans dominated the last Guardian Games, earning more medals from Eva Levante by completing Contender Cards and Triumphs than all others.
This year, each week will offer a new chance to be recognized as the top class in the Games.
A message from Bungie adds: “Each weekly podium ceremony will grant Guardians with distinctive gold, silver, or bronze auras, which will last the rest of the week. The winning class will be recognized at the Guardian Games Closing Ceremonies (May 7-11), complete with resplendent fireworks and a trophy displayed in the Tower all year long.
“Winning is its own reward, but equipping a powerful Exotic is even better. Earn the Heir Apparent Exotic Machine Gun and its catalyst, an Exotic Sparrow, plus Legendary class items (one per class), two emblems, and a pair of shaders.”
Medals have the following values: Bronze: 1 Point, Silver: 2 Points, Gold: 5 Points, and Platinum: 15 Points.
Bungie is still accounting for the different class population, and this year the class that comes in third place each day gets a permanent 10% bonus on scoring going forward.
And the dev team has tested this new scoring system by using last year’s data and the development team are hoping that this year’s Guardian Games will be more competitive.
This will mean different classes winning throughout the event. Hunters will likely win early on because of their population advantage but as the bonuses kick in, the competition should tighten up quickly.
Guardians will also notice a new playlist is in place for this year’s Destiny 2 event that 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.
Bungie adds in a statement: “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.”
