The Destiny 2 A Guardian in Shining Armor quest is one of the objectives that kick off the 2022 edition of the annual event.

But first, completing this quest is going to be beneficial. The summer celebration takes place in 2022 in a brand new fashion, presenting a few interesting reworks that are going to appeal to both veterans and newcomers alike. This guide explains how to start the A Guardian in Shining Armor questline in Destiny 2 and what it entails.

How to Start A Guardian in Shining Armor

If you’re logging into the game starting on July 19, make sure to stop by the Tower, as Eva Levante is waiting for you. After you talk to her you’re going to obtain your respective class armor for the event, as well as the Celebrating Solstice quest. You first need to complete Celebrating Solstice to get access to A Guardian in Shining Armor, which is offered by Eva Levante right after you turn in the last step.

This is yet another straightforward quest all in all, but it does require some more time on your hands compared to the previous one.
