The Guardian Games in Destiny 2, the annual Olympic competition that pits each class against each other over a three-week period, is well underway, and it looks like it is Warlocks are the current favorites to win the whole thing.
Now when you log into Destiny 2, banners representing the progress of each class are clearly visible in The Tower, and they hint at a capital W that goes to the game’s intergalactic wizards. In second place come the Titans, who put in an admirable performance. Last place is Hunters, who are currently being crushed by the tag team performance of the above classes.
As you can imagine, the Destiny 2 community hubs are buzzing with cheers from Warlock players enjoying their exceptional performance. This of course includes some pretty entertaining memes, tasteful posing alongside the class banners, and some amazing artwork too! Reddit user RomanBlue is one such creative who posted his Guardian game poster, which features a warlock triumphantly reaching for the gold.
What is the reason for this big push towards a Warlock win this year? Well, since the launch of the Guardian Games in 2020, the class has yet to achieve a win. Upon initial release, it was Titan’s that came out on top, while Hunters managed to roll into the top spot for 2021. So keep in mind that Warlocks are hungry for a win, and back-to-back wins for Hunters would frankly make the rest of us look bad.
With that in mind, there’s still time to tip the scales more favorably towards Hunters as they push hard and start really contributing to the Guardian Games for a possible second place finish (although that would break my glue-eating titan heart). . However, it’s hard to foresee warlocks botching this lead. We’ll have to wait until May 11th to see if they fumble the ball.
