I'm a Dredgen with her title gilded three times!

"Gambit helps me calm down" is a phrase i never thought i would hear.
Yeah it's a strange phrase but it does.
Good for you. 👍
Everybody has their own preferences and all that matters is having fun.
The matches go by pretty fast, so even if you're losing by a landslide it doesn't really matter just get back into the the next one.
And if anyone asks why you play gambit, you just say because you want to.
Yeah I like Gambit just wish there were more maps.
LFG Raid people just kept on asking me why then go on a rant on how Gambit sucks.
Tell them they are poopy heads cause gambit is great.
I love playing gambit lol. Spent all of Saturday with a buddy just grinding away at it cause we enjoy it
Well eventually they got my friend and I through a run of VoG so I'll let them pass, although those who weren't a part of the team and left rudely are poopy heads.
Well that's good!
Well Lots of people Like to Tell others what content to Play and what not but all that matters is that it works for you and you enjoy it. Dont let their negativity get to you. Oh and gratz on the title ^^.
I know, actually my friend (who I play with and was in the Raid team) and I find it amusing that they couldn't believe someone actually liked the game.
I don't have the title yet so I am jealous of you for sure. I just came back to D2 since Shadowkeep. Been really liking all the quality of life changes to the game.
I am getting really close to getting the title for the first time though so I am excited to wear it proudly. Gambit fits the perfect role in the game I like of being efficient at PvE but also having PvP skill. Helped my buddy get his Army of One's for the Malfeasance quest as well this weekend cause he's not the best invader
Do what you like. Don’t let anyone be the gate keeper to what makes you happy. Cheers!
I love gambit but the ammo economy and enemy inconsistency makes me cry :(
Oh same but it's not gonna stop me from getting that title to look shiny.
If you enjoy it, that’s all that matters. I actually have a fun time playing it too!
It does get annoying but just to hear Drifter say my favorite line after getting four kills as the invader is the best. The linen is: "I'm sorry were they saying something, cause they're dead now!"
Personally I find gambit more stressful than crucible since the stakes of a single death are much higher. But if you feel differently fair enough.
I wish Crucible wasn't stressful to me because I absolutely love Shaxx. Honestly think it's from me playing Call of Duty online since 2008 since all there is for online competitive is straight PvP, they had a thing with zombies but I didn't like that one title.
I need Protect the Runner and no one in my clan is into Gambit, it is going to happen someday in solo queue but it’ll be accidental.
You could just lfg. That's how I got it.
Protect the runner is way harder to get now than it was with OG gambit. Really needs supreme communication and a team to get it now.
The real question is: do you have reckoner
Unfortunately I do not as by the time I got good at Gambit they switched to this new version.
Brain Damage gang rise up
Can’t tell you what a mitochondria is but I can tell you all the high value target spawn locations
I conservatively have left tens of thousands of dollars on the table because of Reckoner.
Thanks for sharing. Half tempted to go get it myself now.
It was a struggle with the 50 wins and getting good company since I am mostly solo, I do have a friend that plays with me but we rarely play Gambit as he doesn't like it.
Bruh I wish I had a Gambit buddy
If you wanna do gambit, by steam is Coltbolterson.
I'd be down to do some gambit, I just got back into it today actually.
Steam is Coltbolterson.
I currently have 2 gilded dredgen with minimal effort. I usually just play Gambit for the weekly challenges, and most of the gilding requirements usually just complete by themselves after a few weeks. Then at the end of the season I just focus on invasion since it's the only requirement left for me to do. I feel it's probably the easiest title to gild.
Now the question is, do you have dredgen yet? There's a triumph for killing opponents in super which relies too much on RNG.
Playing Gambit to put you to sleep. Sounds about right haha. Glad it has its niche uses
If it works it works.
Congrats on guilding your title.
I love Gambit!
Looking forward to do the same
I wish you luck
Thanks! Took advantage of the double Infamy? last week and filled half the my triumphs so getting close
Nice! That double infamy was wonderful for me too.
Nice work! This is actually what I do a lot of nights as well when I can't stop thinking about work. Something about Gambit holds my focus enough to allow me to tune everything on my mind out and finally relax. Don't worry about what those snitches say. We're living proof that Drifter really is our salvation sister!
Thanks! Drifter only let me have the title because I get him motes, food and do errands for him but I stick with the Vanguard as I'm married to Warlord Shaxx. Also Ikora scares me, I mean she's known be the only person who has beaten Shaxx and she also holds the record of back to back supers. Then there's that massive shotgun she loves so much.
... 🙁 ... Well in that case...
*points at Shaxx* For him I'll happily be called a snitch.
You don’t need to justify anything OP. Gambit is my favorite mode too :)
Gambit isn’t as horrible as people say it is. It can be insanely unfair at times and random shit happens. Like ammo economy and motes disappearing but it’s a decent game mode. I too gilded it solo and I have a lot of fun playing.
If you’re curious or wanna brag about how good you are about it, destinytracker.com will show you your stats and how you rank compare to everyone else.
I play solo and im still kinda mad it destinytracker didnt give me my top 500 gambit badge since I was definitely #490. But yeah Gambit really gets a bad rap (admittedly can be shit sometimes) even though it can be a lot of fun to play for long sessions.
I don't feel really the same thing, but clearing waves of ads and collect motes like a braindead with a throwing hammer is just a things that calm me.
As a Triple Gilded Dredgen & Reckoner i salute thee :3
Gambit is fun, but it can spiral out of control and the prime has like no health so its not easy to catch up anymore if you're super far behind
I love Gambit but man the games are so one sided.
I might que into 1 close game every 10 attempts.
Wish Bungie would look into Gambit as I love the games but it just feels very broken.
Btw great job! 👍👍
My condolences! Hope you have a speedy recovery!
Got gilded the first season they added this because I wanted to finish the seasonal challenge and by the time I had it finished (the horrendous infamy grind) I was so close I figured why not get it. After that I never bothered doing it again. Gambit in it's current state is the least enjoyable piece of contend Destiny has to offer.
I'll be going for the last 12 wins I need for Gilded Dregen x3 during a 2x Infamy week. I can't be bothered to play it and earn so little rep to reset rank.
"Gambit been leading to this!"
Bank those motes sister, and I’ll make you rich!
I’ve gilded Dredgen once, and only once to see what it was like and Ye not gonna be doing 50 wins every season. I’ll stick with my lil shield icon.
I have a clan mate who always gilds his dredgen tilte in the first 3 days of a new season.
He is nice and all and will always help when u need some one to raid but in the first 3 days of a season he will grind gambit and then never play it again for the season.
I have no idea why he goes theough this pain and doesnt continue to play gambit but its always fun to see him play gambit instead of doing the story.
Dang now I feel bad for teasing other dredgen.
Gratz. Btw since you managed it, hoping you can help me. I've tried to complete Dark Age Arsenal (Win a Gambit match using all Gambit Weapons) using Servant Leader, Trinary System and 21% Delirium and another attempt with Bad Omens and neither worked. Which loadout did you use?
Personally I used Night Watch, Gnawing Hunger and Bad Omens. The other Gambit weapons that you can use are: Lonesome, Bottom Dollar, Trinary System and Crowd Pleaser.
If these don't work then there might be something wrong with the game.
I see. I'll give that a try, thanks.
E: It worked. Thanks again.
Gambit isn't that bad.. Hell, as someone who hated any form of pvp in the past I can't wait for Iron Banana to return. Recently got my jotun too so now I can be like the rest of the chronically skill impaired when invading in gambit 🤣
You do you friend!
Oh I love PvP too but just decided to go for Dredgen because I was closer to it than Unbroken. Now we have the gilding but I do plan on getting Unbroken since I think I can finish what I need, although that multiple season one is going to be annoying.
Congrats! I find gambit more enjoyable than crucible for sure, but I definitely wouldn't describe it as calming lmao. Also, no need to justify why you play it so much, if you like it then heck yeah, thats all you need to say.
If someone else gives you shit for it then it's their problem, don't let others' opinions influence how much you enjoy a game c:
They just couldn't believe that someone actually liked Gambit and I replied "If I didn't like it then I wouldn't have a two gilded title."
They should have figured it out when I popped in with the ornament of the Ancient apocalypse helm.
(Can I get a bearhug?)
Thanks! *Bear hugs*
cant still get it because i played with hunters that went with one shot punches on everything. i still need to get those wins with most motes, since dying its kinda easy where a certain specie of enemies doesnt do damage and another oneshots you, thats why i always ask only titans
I play bottom tree solar Titan with Thermite Grenade so I wipe everything from existence and unless I know you need the motes then those are mine. I wish you luck though
those hunters, as basicly everyone that does main them, were really toxic, and even if they already did done that triumph, they wouldnt allow me to get them
Yeah Dredgens seem to actually be toxic, again I'm admitting it but sometimes you have to be just to get stuff done.
Coming back to the game after a huge break. What is that, I saw the title in game and assumed it was a guild tag or something
I feel you. I took a break from when Warmind was only out for 3 weeks to near the end of Season of Dawn, so I was thrown in for a ride. I knew they added the stuff but never looked up what anything was.
How did you get protect the runner.
Last one I need for dredgen and it seems insurmountablely hard
A lot of suffering and got some help from the LFG on Xbox.
Guess I need to do that.
What role do you usually play in gambit?
I'm all terrain but I according to my friend I play with am an aggressive invader.
Yesterday I got two back to back invades where I got four kills each invade, both in the same match.
Always good to have a good invader on the team
I try to invade as much as I can but if I see a teammate going for the portal then I'll stop and let them go.
Good for you! I find Gambit fairly relaxing too. At least outside of games where you're up against a team with a super anxious tryhard invader. Still working on getting my Gambit reset and Invader kills to gild my title this season and mostly having fun in the process.
I don't get (but also kinda do get) why people rag on Gambit so hard and say it's dead playlist and all this stuff. If it's so bad and nobody wants to play it, why does it take me less time to get a match for Gambit than it does for Crucible? Seems to me that there's plenty of people that play Gambit and don't hate it enough to keep the playlist strong at all hours of the day.
Once I hit the hard cap on my titan I enjoy playing gambit for fun. Solo queue with synthoceps, hands on mod and high strength and mobility, an auto with swashbuckler and jotuun. I punch every red bar I can and jotuun the yellow bars. Bank motes whenever I run by. Usually have my super by the 3rd rotation and clear all the ads on the 4th rotation. Then I tickle the boss with my (until this season) low dps load out and we lose despite getting the primeval way before our opponents.
I think I average 40 some motes and 40 some kills when I run this and I have fun win or lose.
Gambit has been nothing but terrible in my experience. Super annoyed that I don't have 100% trophies on Playstation for Destiny 2 (missing the one to earn a Triumph seal even though I have Conqueror and Splicer). But apparently the game is picky and I have to earn a seal from when Forsaken launched. I want that trophy (especially since I should already have it). But I really don't want to play Gambit to get it. I got hit by Eyes of Tomorrow way more times than was enough just getting Malfeasance and losing stacks of motes. If Bungie would make it to where ANY Triumph seal would award the trophy as it should be that'd be awesome.
