Season of the Drifter | Destiny 2 Season Six Info
Season of the Drifter is Destiny 2’s sixth and final season of the Annual Pass in year two.
Bungie has one last trick up there sleeve and it’s called “Season of the Drifter”. The Season of the Drifter is surrounded by the Destiny 2, year two game mode called Gambit.
Will Season of the Drifter, or previously known as “Joker’s Wild”, have such twists as Black Armory had with Niobe Labs and Bergusia forge?
Season of the Drifter has four main parts.
- Gambit Prime
- The Reckoning
- New Armor and Weapons
- Timed Release Based Content, Including More Exotic Weapons and Armor
It has been a few months since Bungie released anything “exotic”. The last exotic gear to be released with the Exotic Sniper rifle, Izanagi’s burden.
Let’s not forget the toughest emblem quest ever in the history of Destiny.
No matter what Bungie brings to the Destiny 2 dinner table, it is sure to bring hours of entertainment to the masses and much-anticipated, much needed also, content the Destiny community has been patiently waiting for.
All the new Season of the Drifter sections of content seem to be connected to endgame loot, I.E. weapons, and gear at the max light level.
The all-new Gambit game mode where players choose a specific role and unlock new armor sets with exclusive perks exclusive to the armor set.
The Gambit Prime new Guardian roles are
- Ad clearing and large boss clearing abilities
- Stealthy mote thief that tracks enemy players.
- Deposits blockers and collects motes.
- Protects bank of motes and targets invaders.
A new PVE hoard mode style adventure that is traced back the “The Nine”. This addition to Destiny 2 allows the ability to expand on the lore behind the game.
New Weapons and Gear
There have been over twenty new gear pieces and weapons released. It appears to be all weapons besides a new rocket launcher. The Season of the Drifter weapons surely have a “Gambit” style look to them. The same can be said about the new gear. Dark browns and earthy tones adorn the new weapons and armor lineup.
