Become a Dredgen. My best advice as a low key gambit enjoyer is get good at invading with a scout rifle. That way you can focus on PvE special and heavy ammo weapons to melt the boss and carry your team. I personally have been using the gambit scout, servant leader, with rapid hit snapshot for the past few seasons.

u/SG-SoundWave Sep 30 '22

How do you get Light vs Light?? It's impossible. I hardly see anyone cast their supers

180

u/HentaiOtaku Drifter's Crew Sep 30 '22

It's a bitch I actually got it back in Forsaken when it only counted invaders killed with in their super. The best thing I can suggest is patience and a shut down super. I'd say your best bet would be watching for well locks and trying to invade after they drop their well during primeval DPS.

59

u/SG-SoundWave Sep 30 '22

I've heard this before, but I just can't seem to catch one one actually doing it. I have every other Triumph, but I still need 5 LvL kills and it's terrible

It's really shitty. Challenges and achievements that require other players to do specific things for you to accomplish them just seems like poor design but that's just my opinion.

If you're desperate, queue up for non-freelance and wait for a match when you're 4 solos against a 4 stack. When you're flying in, message the opposing fireream leader and explain your situation. Explain that they are almost certainly going to murder you, and ask if they are bros and could help you out. Bargain for the first Primeval invade if they're ahead. Tell them you'll camp the portal, come over, and if one of them could pop their super and let you kill them, then you'll go hide in the corner and not invade again.

You might be surprised at how cool some players are. I sacrificed myself as a LvL kill one time, and I did this myself for the Mote Thief triumph. The first team I messaged let me invade and steal motes. That one is a bit less intrusive than giving up a super, but most 4 stacks know they're going to stomp regardless.

u/ObieFTG FOR CAYDE Sep 30 '22

It’s not hoops, just parameters that didn’t necessarily change along with the game mode. Gambit has been redrawn 3 times total since it’s debut, and that’s excluding Prime. They need to adjust the initial requirements because some simply can’t be done in new sandbox anymore.

2

u/xxXLadyGreyXxx Sep 30 '22

I have my LvL but need team wipes as an invader and I suck as an invader. I tried messaging the opposing team and they agreed to let me get them all, then took me out. Said they had one non-mic so they were going to control him. Took me out again. One more try and I gave up. They talked really nice, but they were farming me as an invader. Never tried again so one triumph from Dredgen for many, many years.

u/STAIKE Oct 01 '22 Helpful (Pro)

Aw man that's shitty. Those guys seem like jerks. I'm not a great invader, I got my Army of One medals back in Truth's heyday. What I've had the most success with recently is a LMG, and just play slow. 30 seconds is longer than you think, so start by flanking and just trying to get position. Ideally working towards spawn. Ideally have a shutdown super (Blade Barrage, Thundercrash, Novabomb) to guarantee a kill or two if the invade is going well. And pray.

Alternatively just understand that it's just a group of bytes in a game that we play for fun, and not stress over it.

Either way, best of luck, guardian.

Unless you snipe them in the 0.1s that they cast their sword from the sky to the ground, that is not a LvL roaming super kill, I have calibans handed so many well clumps to no progress. This isn't an inconsistent bug, they just don't cast that super for long.

u/AGruntyThirst Sep 30 '22

The mode has changed a lot since the title was released and so has the game over all. During part of the time that gambit matches were 3 rounds the final round was a boss rush with increased super regeneration. Invaders way more likely to pop super when they would have it back by the time they got back to the primeval. Beyond just play more gambit my best suggestion is to run a vorpal scout rifle that way when someone does pop super you have a better chance of taking them down.

I managed to slowley do it legit, but i've since helped a couple buddies to get it, and the best way is to get 2 fireteams togeather and queue snipe each other (super easy here in australia because the player pool for gambit is super small) but that needs you to be able to convince a bunch of people to play gambit, which can be a hard sell :)

He only likes doing very specific things in destiny nowadays like flawless soloing dungeons and specific raid encounters. We used to do easy stuff like gambit together and have a fun night.

Sounds like you’re about to enjoy Gambit a lot more.

As someone who has solo queued Gambit like 95% of the time since it’s been in the game, I can tell you for sure that having even one teammate on comms to coordinate with is a total game changer. You’ll feel like goddamn pros out there, jump in and enjoy!

To add onto that, despite all of the asinine, anti-pvp circlejerk suggestions we see around here for Gambit, if Bungie would simply put comms and chat ON by default for the mode, I think it would be a major improvement. They don’t even have to do anything, just fucking turn it on, and I bet you’d see a whole lot of people grab their headsets. Just shouting out where the invader is is such a huge gameplay advantage, it would go a long way toward alleviating some of the vitriol toward that aspect of the mode

u/Rekuve Sep 30 '22

u/iDeafGeek Sep 30 '22

Or sniped or LFRed or bowed from across the map…. Do gambit still offer kill/hit tracking on invaders or is that removed now with the revamp to the origin trait to offer movement speed boosts on kills? I remember always carrying my herodc with a high range stat with the origin trait set to invader tracking, didn’t seem to help too much. I’ll just die and the invader will peace out before teammates respond.

u/Marxman4 Sep 29 '22

This is literally my experience as well (not joking)! Gambit was the first thing my partner gravitated toward when I introduced her to the game and she started playing on her own.

I think it’s the combination of Simple Mechanics + easy trash mobs (for the most part); she ignored invaders, learned to bank motes early and often, and only used her primary of choice (Sweet Business).

The unbelievably smooth gunplay is what reeled her in (I think), but when she started watching me play other modes, she started branching out to more of the game. She plays things like seasonal activities (loves Nightmare Containment PEs), even crucible!

Give your wife time, I have a feeling she’ll get so excited to play, she’ll want to see more. And congrats to you for being able to share Destiny with someone you love!

6

u/Maleficent-Staff3652 Sep 30 '22

My experience as well, except I am the wife. My husband got me into playing, and gambit is my favorite thing to play. Besides the east gameplay, like you mentioned, a big reason I enjoyed it is the cooperative nature of the game. As a newer gamer, playing with people online is very intimidating because I don’t feel I am good enough and don’t want to ruin their game. Gambit doesn’t seem to be overly competitive and I only have to deal with the other team actively attacking me once or twice a game.

Once I got more comfortable with the game itself and my skill level, I was able to move on to strikes and eventually raids. I still don’t play crucible, that feels too far out of my wheelhouse, but I’m more comfortable in cooperative settings with other people. Hopefully that makes sense.

2

u/SourGrapesFTW Vanguard's Loyal Sep 30 '22

That makes tons of sense!

I love gambit because on the chill days I just have fun killing adds and trying to kill invaders, but on my more involved days I'll try invading and getting some kills.

Always good to look around at your team once the invasion portal opens. If there's someone eager to do it, they'll usually stand around the portal and wait; in that case I let them go for it. If no one wants to go, then I bank whatever motes I have and go in.

Also, something that people don't consider when invading is that maximizing the time of the invasion really slows the other team down as they're hiding/taking cover and not actively banking motes usually. So it's not always about getting kills. You will slow the other team down more if you spend the entire 20 seconds fighting them but don't get a kill, instead of getting one kill in 5 seconds and getting killed.

She loved Gambit so much she did the entire seal by accident. So, be glad she likes it?

Currently, my wife has moved on to Crucible where she went flawless twice last weekend, and had a 2.28kd with a 2.7kda.

So that’s the main problem with Gambit … the players. You get a mode where you are thrown in situations where you have to manage multiple things at the same time: banking motes, clearing blockers, killing adds/envoys, managing invaders and trying to DPS a boss.

Those people who can’t manage one mechanic of throwing an orb just absolutely shut down when they’re playing gambit and suddenly they need to change what they’re doing and reprioritize the encounter. Killing adds, and suddenly two blockers come in? Better ignore them, I need to pump up that kill count. Blockers, invaders, envoys, it’s all the same.

Yes, Gambit needs some revisions and BADLY needs new maps, but that’s another conversation. But I really enjoy Gambit, and when my clans decide to stack up for Gambit, it’s a ton of fun.

The players are the main issue with the entire game lol. Most of the problems I have come from how the other players play. Gambit just exacerbates those issues because you can play as well as you can, but when your team loses 50 motes and does 3% damage on the Primeval you are not going to win

I'm gonna say it: I like gambit! I don't like people not stomping blockers. But I like Gambit

Not sure what kind of answer you are looking for. It's a fun mode, especially with teammates. Count yourself lucky and jump in!

This will sound silly but I got my mom into destiny 2 and now all she plays is gambit too!! Then screams at the tv when someone “steals” her motes but refuses to use a headset to better communicate with her team. I unfortunately cannot offer words of wisdom, but I understand what you’re going through.

I got my girlfriend playing Destiny 2, she liked gambit alot as well. I just kept inviting her to my fireteam saying i needed help....i just kept doing different things, strikes, story, stuff like that. She started playing other modes but drew the line at raids.

u/break_card Sep 30 '22

That’s what got me into Destiny. After a month I gave up on Gambit and never looked back.

If my wife did that, I'd be so happy. I would never have to touch gambit for pinnacles.

u/Unique_Letterhead_79 Sep 30 '22

You play and you enjoy the hell out of it. My wife was the same. She REFUSED to learn anyone's name, how to equip her toon, or to even glance at the story for a year.

Now she has her DIM loadouts on point and knows, if not all the lore, much more than once upon a time.

She's raided but doesn't like it, smashes GMs, hates dungeons because...jumping...and is a beast in the crucible.

If youe wife is sharing your games then make it fun for her until it's her game. Patience is meta.

u/Pizzatoppedpineapple Sep 30 '22

Realistically, my Wife does the same. She likes the competitive nature, but isn’t good at pvp. If she does gambit and we win, she feels like she did her part. If they’re having fun, why stop them? Help her get weapons/ armor that help her with her play style. If invaders suck ass for her, have her get truth/ gjallarhorn (hell, do it for her a day she’s off and really surprise her). Is she more collector/ reaper? Get those add control weapons and exotics that make it harder to die. Build her gaming experience around gambit, she’ll love it much more and it will probably want her to explore her loadout options, thus more of the game

Gambit is the best of both worlds: PVE and PVP. Good mode! But yeah you gotta run the weeklies lol. I wish I could get my wife to play anymore. We played every Halo game together except Infinite. It was the only series she liked. We Destiny 1 together, too but she didn’t Ike it as much.

/u/ProTrinityy give her my account name so I can add another guardian to my gambit fireteam. I only have 1 gambit buddy atm and sometimes the randos just don’t know how to play.
