Daily Focus Playlist in Destiny 2, Explained

Stay on that hamster wheel.

The Daily Focus playlist was a core feature of the 2021 Guardian Games and is making its return in the 2022 season.

By playing the Daily Focus, Guardians can earn more laurels during the Guardian Games Competition. The Daily Focus, as its name suggests, rotates activities on a daily basis. So one day will see players tackling Strikes, the next Gambit, and then Crucible the following day. It is a way to focus the community on a particular task for the duration of the competition.

Guardians can check their Medal Case for the Daily Focus. It appears in the orange text next to a clock. Alternatively, it can be checked by opening the Director and going to Destinations. Pressing E (PC), L2 (PlayStation), or LT (Xbox) will open up a side tab that tells the Daily Focus and gives a completion percentage.

The point of doing the Daily Focus is to acquire more laurels than usual. These laurels are then used to purchase Contender Cards which reward higher-rank medals to be turned in. Laurels can also be used to purchase bounties from Eva Levante and can reward low-rank medals and XP.
