Destiny 2 is known for its Easter Eggs and the new Shadowkeep expansion is no different. With newfound freedom after splitting from Activision, developer Bungie has indulged its whims without concern for criticism. The studio has also tried to give players fun distractions where possible.
One of those distractions is a tire game on the Moon that can become very addicting. Essentially, Destiny 2 players roll a tire down a “hill” and try to land it in one of four different craters. Each of these craters carry a different point value, with the larger craters giving the fewest points.

Destiny 2 players will find the tire game in the Sanctuary area of the Moon near Eris Morn. There is a computer next to an open "door" and a tire will roll out as soon as players interact with the console.
At first glance, the tire game isn’t anything more than another weird Easter Egg that Bungie has put into Destiny 2. It’s certainly not as involved as the Floor is Lava game in the Destiny 2 Tower or creating the big Traveler ball, but it’s something that players can do while they are bored on the moon.
On top of that, there is a Triumph attached to the Tire Game for getting a perfect score. With three tires to work with, Destiny 2 players will need to launch their tubes into the tiny back middle crater for maximum points. Any who achieve the perfect score will unlock the Triumph called "No Pressure."
If any Destiny 2 players happen to be traveling around the Moon and see another player at the Tire Game it’s worth stopping to see their skill. While the Triumph will only unlock for a perfect score, it will unlock for any who witness a perfect score. So although some players may not have great luck when it comes to rolling a tire down some pipe, a random might and everyone will benefit.
Of course, the Tire Game is just one very small piece of the new Shadowkeep expansion that released for Destiny 2 this week. With a story that is meant to be told over months instead of all at once, Year 3 of Destiny 2 has a lot more to offer, even if players might ultimately be disappointed by the initial ending of the Shadowkeep story.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
