It's a time-gated quest.

The “Shoot to Score” quest can be procured from Commander Zavala as part of the “Best in Class” quest when Guardian Games is live between May 2 and 23, 2022, but it’ll be gone after that. The quest is time-gated, which means there are some days you have to wait before progress can continue.

Get familiar with the Guardian Games playlist nodes found within the Tower. There are a couple different kinds to play to earn Medallions, Medals, Laurels, and everything you need for the seasonal event, but only one is available during the weekends.

Here’s how to complete the Shoot to Score quest in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Shoot to Score quest guide 2023

Step one

Get the highest score possible in the Guardian Games: Training playlist

Drop into some rounds in the Guardian Games: Training playlist and level up your score to as high as you can get it. You will be awarded special buffs and rewards at the Tower once you return.

The scoring thresholds are as follows:

  • Bronze: 50,000
  • Silver: 100,000
  • Gold: 150,000
  • Platinum: 175,000

Steps two through six

The next four steps can be knocked out in one go if you’re able to attain Platinum score in the Guardian Games: Competitive playlist. Competitive is only live during the weekends, so it must be completed after the reset on Friday and before the weekly reset on Tuesday.

The image above shows step six in the quest, which instructs players to wait until the next week to continue.

Step seven

In week two, the steps will likely repeat again from step one as the quest did in the 2022 Guardian Games. Earn a high score in the Guardian Games: Training playlist to earn buffs. Then it’s time to wait once more until the Competitive playlist returns on Friday.

Steps eight through 12

It’s time once again to go to the Competitive playlist and get some high scores, and then wait once again for next week for the quest to continue.

Step 13

Practice activities in the Guardian Games: Training playlist and reach score thresholds to earn buffs that last throughout the week.

It’s time once again to reiterate that practice makes perfect. Run the Nightfall again in the Training playlist to prepare for one final weekend of high scores. The final steps of the quest will be available on Friday, May 19.

Steps 14 through 18
