Destiny 2 Heir Apparent Exotic guide: Guardian Games 2020

A new event and a new weapon.

Destiny 2 has a new Exotic in the Heir Apparent and Guardians will need to smash the Guardian Games 2020 event in order to get it.

How to earn the Heir Apparent

In order to get the Heir Apparent Exotic Machine Gun, you’ll need to earn the Class Act Triumph, which tasks a Guardian to earn seven additional Guardian Games 2020 Triumphs. A full listing of event Triumphs can be found below:

  • Star Athlete: Complete all Triumphs
  • Renowned: Earn points by collecting laurels from super, grenade and charged final blows
  • Gold Medalist: Redeem gold medals (30)
  • Show Your Colors: Earn points by completing Guardian Games bounties
  • Quintuple Threat: Redeem a gold medal for Crucible, Gambit, Strikes, Destinations and Forges
  • Class Act: Complete any seven Guardian Games 2020 Triumphs
  • Great Deeds: Collect laurels in Gambit (400), Strikes (500), Forges (600) and on Destinations (1,000)
  • Medalist: Redeem any mdeals (75)
  • Represent: Defeat combatants with abilities in Strikes and Nightfalls
  • World Class: Redeem Forge or Destination medals (20)
  • Guardian Gamble: Redeem Gambit medals (10)
  • Embrace the Light: Defeat Guardians with Supers in the Rumble playlist (25)

The Heir Apparent has two perks — the Heavy Slug Thrower, which prevents the weapon from firing until it’s fully spun up, and the Armor of the Colossus, which grants you an Arc shield if firing the weapon at full health.

Guardian Games 2020 explained

  • Earning Medals: You can earn medals daily by speaking with Eva at the Tower. She’ll give you quests across Destiny 2 activities, tasking you to eliminate enemies, collect laurels and whatnot. She’ll also offer a single Gold medals for completing bounties.
  • Redeeming Medals: You’ll need to deposit earned medals into the stage behind Eva; be aware that there’s a different slot to use for each class (Titans use the far left one, as an example).
  • Earning Laurels: You’ll automatically pick up a laurel when you or a teammate kills an enemy with a Super, charged melee or grenade ability.

Destiny 2 is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Stadia where available.
