The latest Destiny 2 TWAB is shorter than last week’s, but it still provides pretty good information about what’s to come. The annual Guardian Games is returning this Tuesday, May 3. Bungie reveals new Ritual Weapons for Season 17 as well.

Annual Event Returns

The longstanding Guardian Games event returns next week. Participants can earn medallions by completing certain in-game activities. Medallions can be turned in at the Podium in the Tower, and the class that receives the most medallions after the event period wins.

This time, Bungie will implement some new things, like two Guardian Games playlists: Training and Competitive. Although you can tackle the activities in the said playlists at any time, you can earn additional rewards when playing them on certain days.

Playing the Training playlist on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday allows you to earn practice scores. Tackling the Competitive playlist on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday grants you exciting rewards.

It is also worth noting that you can earn buffs in all playlists by ranking bronze, silver, gold, or platinum. These buffs will last until the next weekly reset on Tuesday.

So, what are the rewards that you’re going to get? Aside from class items, you will have a shot at earning the Heir Apparent Exotic machine gun and its catalyst. Besides that, you can get “The Title” Void SMG that comes with the Classy Contender perk, which grants class ability energy with final blows from this weapon.
