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. 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!!

  2. 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!!!!

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

  4. 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

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

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

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. 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

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

  16. 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……

  17. Finishing up for the night, at the traveler/tower doing my engrams, drifter wants me. (Done a couple games of reckoning beforehand for the first time). I go to him. He has a 750 legendary engram. It drops a spare rations. The same day I had gotten Outbreak Perfected and The Last Word. My jaw drops in amazement. Life is good. And what I want to say is, there is hope when getting the exotics you truly desire, today was my lucky day, you’ll have your one soon, guardian.

  18. I have been farming reckoning and gambit prime for 3 weeks without a single drop

    My friend played one game and he got a god roll spare rations

  19. ive gotten 4 snipers, 2 shotgun, the grenade launcher and thats it. At this point ill accept any role on the spare rations

  20. I got sole survivor when the enemy team was grouped up in the middle where the damage area for the primeval. I use golden gun 1.2.3.4 damn they all dead!

  21. It’s funny I got the pare rations. But I didn’t know I banked 50 motes cause I was Totally in the zone Just focused. It’s not really that hard to do if you just play smart. I was killing a lot of majors. Also I learned how to avoid invaders if I was carrying a lot of motes. You just gotta know what your doing

  22. Why would Bungie make the HC have such a stupidly low drop rate, really shows how bad they are at balancing out the already insane amounts of RNG in the game.
    I'm nearing 200 Gambit games in total and only gotten 2 spare rations, both with horrible perks.
    But i've gotten 18 night watches, 27 lonesomes, 10 sole survivors (4 curated ones) and 3 last man standing. This is just ridiculous.

  23. Me: intentionally tries to get spare rations
    Bungie: here’s sole survivor and bug out bag
    For some reason I got sole survivor without invading and killing guardians
    I banked fifty motes and didn’t get spare rations maybe I have to complete introduction gambit or the other one

  24. I remember when I was doing the quest for ace of spades, I somehow got spare rations, and my biggest mistake was dismantling it😞

    Update: I GOT IT AGAIN, 70 MOTES BABY!!!!!!!!

  25. I just played gambit I just banked two blockers and kept on killing enemies and got a god roll rations when the game ended

  26. I got spare rations after watching this vid in gambit prime I’m blessed I prayed to the traveler for this hand cannon
