Guardian Games 2022 has a slightly different structure than before. The basics are about the same: you collect laurels, buy competition cards and bank medals to contribute to the competition. There are cosmetic clothes and gadgets to buy in Eververse and if you missed the Catalyst for Heir Apparent, you can get it again. Same same, but different. A perfectly okay pastime if you are done with the other in Season of the Risen and The Witch Queen.
New for this year’s Guardian Games is the new SMG’s The Title. It is a void aggressive SMG with a completely unique origin trait: Classy Contender. This brand new trait generates class ability energy on kills. Much like Wellspring, though specific to class ability, that is, Rift, Barricade and Dodge. It has been shown that the energy you get again is not as great as from Wellspring, but given that it is specific to class ability, it may be expected. The recovery seems to be a percentage so depending on what class ability you use you will recover different amounts. A simple rule of thumb is that longer cooldowns generate more energy per kill.
But why would you want to use this in addition to Funnelweb or Shayura’s Wrath which is also void SMG’s? Although these two killer machines are great at what they do have great choices (especially Funnelweb), The Title has a different offering. The perks we find on The Title are not as extreme and unfortunately it has neither Wellspring nor Demolitionist. But you have the superb combination between One for All and Stats for All which is perfect for PvE, or Dynamic Sway and Moving Target for PvP.
Though it is its unique origin trait that is its strength. But for The Title to be truly valuable, you need to build yourself for class ability. Here come several exotic armor and can really spice up your style of play. As a warlock, I love my healing rift and if I really want to pink territory, The Stag and The Title together with Utility Kickstart can really make me hard-skinned in difficult activities. But there are several fun combinations! Gemini Jester, Loreley Splendor, Mask of Bakris, The Dragon’s Shadow, The Sixth Coyote, RADIANT DANCE MACHINES!
I myself will test an aggressive build on my warlock with void 3.0, Volatile Rounds and the new long underwear Secant Filaments. It’s exciting weapons like The Title that make Destiny 2 so fun!
What build are you thinking of?
By the way, you farm The Title by beating medals. So jump into the game and show what your class is for!
Support your class and streamer
During the Guardian Games, Bungie holds an event featuring streamers and profiles Destiny 2 competes for which class is best (warlock, duh). The competition is called nothing less than Guardian Games Cup. The hosts and their teams, divided into regions, will not only compete for bragging rights. During their streams, they hand out codes to a unique emblem – so if you want to grab it, you need to keep up.
Of course, Bungie takes the opportunity to incorporate a charity campaign into the competition, with donations for their partners Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organization operating in over 80 countries, including Ukraine. If you want to be a real hero and donate a few coins for a good cause – while cheering for your favorite streamer – then donate via the streamer’s own link during the Guardian Games Cup, and we’ll see which streamer collects the most donations!
