GR Pick: Destiny 2 Vanguards Throw Down in Rap Battle

GR Pick: Destiny 2 Vanguards Throw Down in Rap Battle

The Destiny 2 community is truly something special. Amidst the chaos of a game that has been middling in its attempts to build on the good qualities of its predecessor, the dedicated Guardians who populate Bungie’s online servers day-in and day-out have been doing what they always do—producing some really cool content. Although the universe of Destiny 2 might be a little grim at times, its player base sure knows how to brighten things up, and YouTuber Dan Bull proved it in a big way recently with a good old fashioned rap battle.

The fully-animated battle features Zavala, the Titan Vanguard, rapping opposite the quirky Cayde-6 in a fun video that is equal parts a cipher and a rap battle. While Cayde-6 has been a fan favorite for years now, it isn’t often we get to see a lighter side of the usually stoic Zavala, and it’s a nice bit of fan-made content for a character who sometimes gets ignored in favor of Destiny 2‘s larger personalities. Check out the video below:

Given that the original Destiny was often criticized for being somewhat bland in the way it approached its cast of Guardians, it must be refreshing for developer Bungie to see its characters getting such elaborate fan-made content made in their honor. While Destiny 2 is improving, with attention being paid to in-game progression and monetization models, videos like Dan Bull’s help pass the time in between the title’s end-game content and its next major releases.

It’s not like Guardians aren’t used to seeing Destiny 2 seep into various other mediums outside of the video game world, either. Activision and Bungie have been aggressive in marketing the game as a multimedia offering, with recent partnerships like the one between Amazon’s Alexa and Destiny 2‘s Ghosts proving just how versatile the lore—and fan dedication—in Destiny 2 can be.

The high quality of Dan Bull’s video makes it stand out in a sea of talented content creators working on Destiny 2 content, and hopefully we see even more from him in the future. Could we see Ikora Rey or Lord Shaxx be the next to try their hands at a rap battle?

Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
