Destiny 2 April 20-27 weekly reset: Guardian Games, Nightfall, Crucible playlists, and more

Exciting times ahead for Destiny 2 fans, as the Guardian Games go live with the latest weekly reset.
Rise and shine, Guardians, it's Tuesday, and that means it's time for the scheduled weekly reset in Destiny 2.

For those uninitiated and unfamiliar with the game, every Tuesday at 10:00am PT/6:00pm GMT, Bungie decides to reset every activity reward, change challenges, singes, and rotate weekly playlists, ensuring a new batch of Pinnacle Gear to chase for those religiously playing the game.

This is a special reset, as it brings the Guardian Games back for the final weeks of Season of the Chosen, a special event that pits Warlocks, Hunters, and Titans in a friendly competition amongst themselves.

Without further ado, this is what the weekly Destiny 2 reset for 20th-27th April brings.

Guardian Games go live

We have an entire article explaining what the Guardian Games actually are and how to take part in them, but the basics of it involve earning Medals and Laures, then proceed to exchange them for points in a global leaderboard that will reward the subclass who earns the most at the end of the event.

If you've didn't complete the Seasonal Iron Banner Challenges before Saladin said goodbye with the reset you're out of luck, as the PvP event won't return again this season.

However, if you still need the Showdown Seasonal Challenge, head out to the Crucible as the playlist has replaced Mayhem for the upcoming week. 

Raid Challenges

As usual, these challenges are optional but will net you more rewards upon raid completion. This week's challenges are:

  • Deep Stone Crypt: Of All Trades - Third encounter, each Guardian must do all three roles (Operator, Scanner, and Suppresor)
  • Garden of Salvation: Leftovers - First encounter, Cyclops' in the first two rooms must not be killed
  • Last Wish: Which Witch - Second encounter, Guardians must not take damage from Shuro Chi's Arc Blast.

And there you have it! An exciting time to be a Destiny 2 fan, don't miss out on everything this week has to offer.

We'll see you next time for the upcoming weekly reset on 27th April.
