Medals, Laurels, and Contender Cards Explained in ‘Destiny 2′ Guardian Games 2021 Guide
From April 20 to May 11, Destiny 2 will host its second-annual Guardian Games, and we’re here to break down everything you need to know about the upcoming case. Are you trying to figure out how to get your squad the most medals and Laurels? Do you want to know how the points will be awarded during the competition? With the aid of Bungie’s official documents, we’ll answer all of those questions and more.
What are the Guardian Games and how do I get started with them?
The Guardian Games are a free, class-based competition in which all Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks compete against one another to win the most points over the course of the event. Although there will only be one true winner who will be awarded the trophy for a full year after the dust settles, the 2021 Guardian Games will also feature weekly Podium Ceremonies. During the ceremony, your Guardian will shine in response to your team’s success over the previous week.
Bronze Glow is the third choice. Silver Glow is the second choice. First, there’s Gold Glow. Platinum Glow All-Stars
The final point totals will be announced during the closing ceremonies, which will take place from May 7 to May 11.
To begin your quest for Medals and Laurels, you must first obtain the new Zavala Class Item and Eva’s Medal Case. The Medal Case stores a large amount of medals without impacting your inventory space. Make sure you periodically turn in Medals to Eva to get credit for all your hard work!
How to earn points by getting Medals and Laurels
The Guardian Games uses two currencies called Medals and Laurels. These are earned the following ways:
Medals are earned by completing Activities, Triumphs and Contender Cards. Contender Cards are a new addition for 2021, which we will explain in greater detail below.
Laurels are dropped by other players, and can be used to purchase Bounties, Contender Cards and other rewards from Eva. Laurels drop in most modes, but are awarded at the end of rounds in Crucible and Gambit. Getting Laurels means leveraging ability kills. Players get bonus Laurels by picking them up from members of their respective class.
Medals award the following points based on their color:
Bronze: One Point Silver: Two Points Gold: Five Points Platinum: 15 Points
To compensate for Destiny 2’s lopsided class sizes, Bungie has introduced a system where the last. This is a brief summary.
