How to Unlock Destiny 2 Gambit Prime

Unlocking Gambit Prime in Destiny 2 is dead easy. Firstly, download the new update for Destiny 2 on your platform to access the Season of the Drifter, which comes in at around 4.2GB.

Now boot up your game, and head into the Tower. You can now find the Drifter in the Annex area, which was previously unlocked through Ada-1 appearing at the beginning of the Season of the Forge.

Speak to the Drifter, and he’ll welcome you back like old pals. Thanking you for making Gambit a resounding success, he’ll give you the ‘Who Are You?’ quest step.

And that’s it, you’re all good to go with Gambit Prime. Now head into your navigation screen, and select Gambit. Instead of just the one mode, there’s now the Reckoning, and Gambit Prime. Thankfully, the latter doesn’t have a Power level requirement, so you’re good to go straight away.
