Destiny 2 players are coming together to honor the late actor Lance Reddick during the Guardian Games event. Reddick, who voiced the Titan Vanguard Commander Zavala in the game, tragically passed away in March 2023.

In remembrance of his contribution to the game, many players are choosing to play as the Titan class during this year’s Guardian Games event, which is currently live in Destiny 2 until May 23, 2023.

The Guardian Games event is an annual in-game competition that allows players to represent their respective classes and compete against each other. The three classes in Destiny 2 are Warlock, Hunter, and Titan, with each having its unique abilities and playstyles.
