The Destiny 2 Guardian Games are coming back yet again, and with them the annual rise in class loyalty, healthy competition, and cheeky banter is bubbling up too. Announced in the April 28 This week in Bungie blog post, the limited-time event will be dropping onto The Tower starting May 3 for all Destiny 2 players.

For those not in the know, the Guardian Games is an annual occasion that splits players up by their classes.

This allows players to earn a selection of exclusive items, sure, but it also adds to the total class score too. By the end of the event, a class will be crowned champion, and a statue will be erected in the tower for the rest of the year.
