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 week, we continue to grind Medals in 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 27th April to 4th May.

Guardian Games continue

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.

Showdown is one of the modes required to complete all Seasonal Challenges, so if you were a diligent Guardian, its absence shouldn't bother you at all.

There's chance Showdown might appear on the final two resets, so keep an eye out if you're missing this challenge.

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: The Core Four - Fourth encounter, Guardians must dunk all four nuclear cores before each DPS phase.
  • Garden of Salvation: A Link to the Chain - Second encounter, all Guardians must recieve the enlightened buff at the same time
  • Last Wish - Forever Fight - Third encounter, don't kill smol ogres, kill big boi.

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.
