As part of the ongoing Season of the Worthy, Bungie has kicked off Destiny 2‘s first-ever Guardian Games–an event seemingly inspired by a mixture of the real-life Olympics and Destiny’s Faction Rallies. In it, players of each class will compete with each other to decide (for now) who is best among Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks. Along the way, you can earn a variety of rewards, the most tantalizing of which is a new Exotic machine gun called Heir Apparent. Here’s how to get it and what you need to know about the event.
How To Get Heir Apparent
Eva Levante at the Tower serves as the primary vendor and hub for Guardian Games, and you’ll immediately see Heir Apparent in her list of available gear for “sale.” However, you can’t buy the Exotic outright; you’ll first need to complete the Class Act triumph. This calls for you to complete any seven Guardian Games 2020 triumphs, of which there are 12 total (including Class Act and Star Athlete, the latter of which asks you to complete all 11 others).
The other triumphs largely consist of taking part in the event, as we’ll explore below. You’ll need to redeem medals, kill enemies with abilities in Vanguard Strikes or Nightfalls, earn points by completing Guardian Games bounties, redeem gold medals, and so on. The triumphs are spread across generic goals that can be completed in any activity, and those that require specific types of Strikes or participation in either Gambit or Crucible. As a result, you’ll need to take part in an array of activities–you won’t be able to grind out everything in one activity type.
