Destiny 2’s Guardian Games event has returned for 2022 and there’s a new quest to go along with it.

The “Shoot to Score” quest can be procured from Eva Levante when Guardian Games is live between May 3 and 24, 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.

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 next steps are as of yet unknown but should be available on the weekend reset at 12pm CT on May 13. The steps are likely to repeat, albeit this time with a different Nightfall Strike in the Competitive playlist once it returns.

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 repeat again from step one. 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.

Week two’s Nightfall Strike in the Training playlist is Proving Grounds.

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 this week’s Nightfall (Birthplace of the Vile) 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 20.

Steps 14 through 18
