Destiny 2’s yearly clash of the Guardians has been confirmed for 2023. Here’s everything we know about the Guardian Games, including start time, rewards, and more.

Guardians in Destiny 2 have always had a rivalry with one another, with each class constantly trying to prove which is the best. Guardian Games is Bungie’s answer to that age-old question, providing players with an event and a competition in an Olympic-like manner.

According to Bungie’s Lightfall TWAB, Guardian Games will be returning in 2023 for Destiny 2. Guardian Games, like the year before, will involve several rewards and cosmetics for players, as well as some form of activity for players to compete in.

What are Destiny 2’s Guardian Games?

The Guardian Games are an event in Destiny 2 which pits Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans in a head-to-head competition to see who is the best class of them all.

Bungie determines this via what classes can accumulate the most points, which are gained by completing either activities or bounties.

There’s a good chance that a new weapon may be added to the game on behalf of this event, similar to how “The Title” was added last year.

Bungie will also reward the winning class of the event with a neat statue that remains in the tower until the next Guardian Games swings around.
