The Destiny 2 2021 Guardian Games have arrived. No Destiny 2 event would truly be complete without a few legendary and exotic items for Guardians to chase after or purchase.

The Guardian Games is a free event that is available to all players, regardless of whether they own the season pass. It is essentially the Destiny 2 version of the Olympics.

Today officially marks the last week of Destiny 2’s Season of the Hunt. Bungie has so far released little information about the upcoming season, but the internet naturally has a different plan. It was recently leaked that the next Destiny 2 season will be dubbed the “Season of the Chosen” and will be focused on the Cabal. The leak comes from a now-deleted tweet from Game Informer. The tweet featured Commander Zavala standing on what appears to be Nessus. Caiatl, the daughter of former Cabal Emperor Calus, looms over Zavala. A mysterious ship appears to have crashed nearby Zavala. This leak matches many of the hints that have been dropped by Bungie over the last few months. A... Read more...
Destiny 2: Beyond Light has been almost solely focused on the newest location of Europa. The Season of the Hunt has taken Guardians to the Tangled Shores and Dreaming City, but most activities on older locations have been neglected by players. Additionally, much of the gear that was issued in previous seasons will sunset in upcoming seasons. This system has therefore not provided Guardians with much incentive to engage with older content. Destiny 2 developers Bungie are thankfully making a few changes to make outdated gear and activities relevant again. Destiny 2 will soon reissue the Dreaming City's Reverie Dawn armor, Moon’s Dreambane armor, and a total of eight weapons. Season 13 will... Read more...
It is the holiday season which means that seasonal video game events abound. Destiny 2 is no exception and players have been grinding through the Dawning 2020 event. Unfortunately, progress for this event has been quite slow. Destiny 2 developer Bungie has therefore tripled Dawning Spirit rewards for the community “Share the Dawning Spirit” quest. The Dawning 2020 event is similar to previous Destiny 2 holiday events. Players must use Eva Levante’s oven to bake cookies for NPCs. There are two Dawning quest lines this year-- “Share the Dawning Spirit” and “And To All a Good Flight.” “And To All a Good Flight” is an individual quest which rewards... Read more...
Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion introduced something entirely new to the game -- a darkness subclass dubbed Stasis.

Players thankfully do not need to wait until the Witch Queen expansion to get their hands on these Aspects and Fragments. Smith further... Read more...

Today, however, Bungie has released its latest patch for the game -- labeled as Hotfix 3.0.1.2 -- that addresses a number of outstanding issues with the game. The hotfix also makes some adjustments to in-game weapons to help with gameplay balance.

In addition, it is now capable of storing five charges, which is an increase from the previous maximum capacity... Read more...

Destiny 2: Beyond Light is set to launch today and kick off a new era of the game. Destiny 2 developers Bungie hosted a live event yesterday to end the last “year” and transition into the next expansion. The Destiny 2 live event was a nice ending, but also featured a host of frustrating issues. Destiny 2 Live Event: Exploring the Streets of the Last City Most players did not know that Bungie would be hosting an end-of-season live event until recently. There had been some evidence that an end-of-season event was possible, but most players did not know that the event would occur until Luke Smith of Bungie tweeted that a “small event” would close out the season.

The new Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion will be available in less than a week. The expansion was supposed to be released this past September, but was delayed until November 10th. This has allowed players to really experience all that the Season of Arrivals has to offer. However, does the Season of Arrivals have one last surprise before the new expansion launches?

First, Reddit user Leopard Avenger claimed four months ago that they had found a “Calamity Protocol” emblem. This legendary emblem is reportedly from an “End of Season Event.”... Read more...
