Destiny 2: How to Get The Gambit Prime Weapons (Spare Rations, Sole Survivor)


Hey guys, today, I’m gonna quickly go over
how to get the Gambit Prime weapons that you may have been seeing. They were showcased in the ViDoc a bunch,
but it’s never really been said how you get them. In Gambit Prime, you may have been rewarded
randomly with an extra synth during gameplay based on what you were doing at the time. For example, an HVT kill give a Reaper Synth,
invasion kills give an Invader Synth, killing blockers or invaders a Sentry Synth and dropping
in a ton of motes, a Collector Synth. These requirements are essentially the same
for the Gambit Prime weapons, except the drop chance for them is pretty low. You are randomly awarded these masterworked,
curated weapons while doing things that earn you these extra synths. To make things easy, they’re basically linked
to the following medals: Invader Synths are linked to the Army of One medal, the Reaper
Synth to Value Hunter or Massacre, the Sentry Synth to Not on My Watch and potentially the
Blockbuster medal sort of, and Collector to Half-Banked. For example, the Sole Survivor energy sniper
comes from killing the entire team when you invade. I went in, killed 4 people and got the sniper. You’ll get an invader synth when you do this
the first time in a match, but the sniper is just a very low drop chance. You can also potentially get a synth from
wiping out a bunch of the enemy team’s motes, 10 or 15 or so. The masterwork version comes with Outlaw and
Snapshot, pretty good perks, but it doesn’t have the scope I like though, this one comes
with a triangle top, I like the dot, personal preference. The submachine gun Bug-Out Bag, has a low
chance of dropping from a high value target. You can also get reaper synths from a massacre
medal. This is the easiest weapon to get because
killing an HVT is the easiest thing to do to proc one of the weapon drops. The curated version comes with multi-kill
clip and slideways, multi-kill clip is pretty good as long as you’re killing multiple targets
per clip, but slideways is meh, only restores like 5 bullets or something. The hand cannon Spare Rations is the collector
weapon and the trigger for it is where you need to bank 50 motes or bank a Giant blocker. 50 motes is pretty tough to do in Gambit Prime,
especially solo, Giant blocker is a bit more reasonable, again, solo queue I imagine it’s
a bit tough to do it and you need the full collector set, or most of it anyway. The masterwork version has Overflow, which
give you 28 bullets in your magazine when picking up special or power ammo and Explosive
Rounds. 28 bullets in a hand cannon is a cool novelty,
but you can get by without it and explosive rounds aren’t bad, but aren’t as good as they
used to be. The shotgun is the Sentry trigger, where you
need to kill blockers and invaders. While I haven’t gotten it to drop myself just
yet, it drops from killing blockers and from killing invaders quickly after they enter. These are what trigger the Sentry Synth, so
I assume they are linked with the shotgun. The curated version is full-auto and auto-loading
holster which is a pretty bland roll. It is 60 RPM, or in this case 66 because of
the full-auto, so it shoots a little faster than Mindbender’s Ambition at the same impact,
so I guess that’s noteworthy, but otherwise, that’s about it. Tier 2 Reckoning can drop the shotgun, sidearm,
scout rifle and sniper rifle both curated and non-curated. The weapon will drop instantly upon completion
of the boss kill. Tier 3 Reckoning can drop the hand cannon,
grenade launcher, pulse, auto and SMG. These weapons do not drop very often though,
I did maybe about 7 runs of T3 Reckoning and never got a weapon, so you can expect to grind
for a while if you’re hunting for something good. While doing the opening quest line for the
Drifter, there are also some opportunities to get these items, as he’ll give you a random
item every so often when you complete an objective, but for the most part, you’re gonna be farming
Reckoning if you want a randomly rolled weapon. Thanks for watching and happy hunting.

  1. can someone help me
    i need to complete the chasm of screams strike for the thorn im on ps4 and my gamer tag is pbr2005

  2. Idk if it’s a bug or not. But if you have the full invader gear and invade, all you have to do I drain there motes, you don’t even have to kill, just eat their motes. It has a really high chance of dropping the curated role for the sniper. I got two within three games.

  3. I played at least 15 matches in a row and banked giant blockers every march AND banked more than 50 motes in quite a few of them and haven't gotten a single hand cannon to drop. THIS GAME IS BULLSHIT AND BUNGIE IS PISSING ME OFF. I hope they read this cuz their RNG system sux.

  4. Should I get back into Destiny 2? I went through the DLC all the way to forsaken but never did anything in that newer area after beating hentai monster and haven't done any of the raids or anything and I ended up deleteing the game. I don't have this DLC either. The pass or whatever it is.

  5. Grabbed the curated smg from an hvt yesterday ive not taken in into pvp yet cos yano thorn quest but it seems like it could be a beast.

  6. Hand cannon 100% drops from t2 reckoning. Have had multiple teammates have it on various tiers, one even got it from t2 and then t3 3 times in a row straight after the other tier. It was oryx but also a pal had it from the knights

  7. I honestly think weapons rotate per week more or less like the escalation protocol weapon rotation, farmed tier 3 & tier 2 20 plus times each & only got the scout rifle

  8. Bro, ive played close to 100 games of gambit prime and like 10 games or reckoning tier 2, maxed out my tokens, invader tokens multiple times and i haven't gotten a single weapon. This game hates me

  9. Lack of loot drops are diminishing these experiences. Feels like I'm playing for nothing. 5 consecutive tier 2 clears, nothing. With random reolls back in the game Bungie really needs to fix loot drops.

  10. Hey Datto I have the gambit hand canon with some perks you might want to look at. It has rampage and the new perk where kills reload your weapon. Each kill will reload 2 bullets. If you want to look at it on Bungie.net my gt is EG Cab00se. It’s on my warlock.

  11. Funnily enough, I had no idea these existed. And on my first Gambit Prime match on my Warlock I got the Masterwork Spare Ration.

  12. Shoulda checked on this guide before I started to farm for my spare rations… I though it was a random roll lol

  13. the Reaper Synth requirements are getting on my nerves, I’m just a Collector, and because I can’t get 20 Motes just yet, I try to get 50, but one stray bullet that might hit a high value target marks me off for that instead

  14. if ur still hunting these don't bother with gambit prime (unless u might be going for something like delirium) since they buffed drop rates in reckoning and added a protection thingy which outright makes it superior as in terms of getting actual weapons is no longer purely rng.

  15. Ok ok listen , this is all wrong I got the sniper just from killing the prime. All the weapons just drop when ever period. Just plain and simple RNG. Bullshit!!

  16. So i dont have to keep going through gambit prime killing everyone on the other team when invading to get another sole survivor, and i can just grt it through reckoning tier 2!!!! THANK GOD!!!!

  17. I’ve banked 51 motes in a match. Did not get spare rations. This is a lie or am I missing something

  18. I was able to get three of the lonesome sidearm from a reaper, all three dropped from one reaper mote, and one of them was masterworked, rip me

  19. I have been on a grind just playing Prime. Have gotten the sidearm, handcannon, shotgun, smg, scout rifle, and grenade launcher.

  20. Thank you for this dude, been trying to figure this out now that I hopped back into D-2 again. Cheers

  21. 1:10 is incorrect! i did a team wipe and got no sniper! its only from the reckoning tier three during the swords of oryx is when i got it!

  22. I have this weapon (spare rations) then someone in my clan asked me how I got it and I was like idk. It also has decent rolls.

  23. I've gotten a couple of these weapons so far. Outlast Pulse Rifle, Sole Survivor Sniper Rifle and the shotgun

  24. This video doesn't make sense anymore because you don't get the weapons just as you did or the synths unless you do bounties or finish the matches.

  25. I got the Spare Rations and dismantled it because I died in Crucible, now it's being apparent that I'm just an idiot and dismantled a rare weapon.

  26. i banked the 50 like five times last match i got booted from the game no error code so , guess what fuck it no more destiny you fuck me ill delete you have a good run d2

  27. Do u have to have a tier 3 armor set or can u use a tier 1 armor set of the collecter set to get the hand cannon

  28. i will almost never…. never get the 1-2 punch shotty. but at least this explains why my curated shotty dropped on an invader kill. thanks for this

  29. I've gotten 2 master worked last man standings on top of 10 other none master worked and 1 bug out masterwork

  30. So glad I watched this video a second time. My excitement almost got the better of me as I somehow missed that it's only curated rolls that drop in GP. Nope, nope, nope……
