Putting your favorite game as your desktop wallpaper is a great way to show off your fandom. Guardians already know, but typically the best backgrounds are artsy without being too flashy, leaving a nice amount of space for arranging all your icons. With those criteria in mind, we’ve gathered a sampling of some sweet wallpaper options right here.
Hunter, Warlock, and Titan
We’ll start with the classic trio of Hunter, Warlock, and Titan. No matter what class you play, they stand together in the spotlight here.
This second wallpaper options groups them together again, but with a focus on the game’s iconic logo. The framing of the Guardians leaves a nice dark area for you to place all your app icons.
We can’t do a roundup like this without giving a nod to Cayde-6 (RIP). This lovely piece by Juan Pablo Rodan is both a touching tribute and a wonderful wallpaper option.
Cayde-6 will always be a fan favorite, but the Exo Stranger shown here in this shot of Europa was instantly suspicious. This wallpaper will let you reflect back on that history every time you boot up your PC.
How about a second, less villainous shot of Europa? The icy planet makes for a ‘cool’ background, especially with the Europan Pyramid looming in the distance.
Svathun’s Throne World
Destiny 2’s Witch Queen expansion took Guardians to Savathun’s Throne World, represented by the concept art here. It’s a great wallpaper, and a reminder of how far we’ve all come.
Here’s another peaceful shot: the Arcadian Valley on Nessus. The autumn-inspired foliage is a perfect fit for anyone who likes to change out their wallpaper with the seasons.
You can’t have a collection of Destiny wallpapers without including a shot of the moon. It’s been an important part of both games, and you can honor that by setting it as your background.
Vault of Glass
We also had to include at least one raid, and Vault of Glass is our pick. The light shining through all those brutalist bricks makes for a lovely desktop setup.
Finally, we’ll end on this slick shot of a pair of glaives. It’s a sharp image (get it?) to begin with, but it also bisects the screen in a way that perfectly lends itself to icon arrangement on the top and bottom.
