Is the Drifter Evil!? Destiny 2 lore Forsaken | Myelin Games


We discovered some kind of alien monolith,
a facility left by the inhabitants of that planet long gone by then. But trapped inside was a creature. In a cage of some sort, frozen in ice. An exhibit? Was it some kind of zoo? Still not sure to this day. We should’ve brought a scientist. All we had were… well, guys who thought
we looked tough in dark colors. Welcome back guardians. Today I wanted to discuss the Drifter from
the new hybrid mode Destiny 2 Forsaken, Gambit. Many of you have likely heard the Drifter’s
lines during Gambit, or wondered why he has access to the Taken or how he summons a Primeval
or what his ship is pulling, you know that giant asteroid thing his ship is pulling or
why he is called a rogue lightbearer… AND consequently you may have thought, is
this guy a good guy or bad guy? Well, you will be pleased to know that all,
and mean all, of these questions are answered within the lore. The snake symbol of Gambit, why it is called
Gambit, why he has Taken, everything is answered. This video is packed with a tonne of lore. If that wasn’t enough, the Drifter also
has a deep and complex story that is intertwined, with Dredgen Yor, Thorn, The Shadows of Yor,
Shin Malphur and the new exotic Malfeasance. When this video goes live, I will also be
live over on twitch if you want to say hi. Link in the description. As usual, the artwork at the beginning of
this video was provided by Gammatrap, all patreon donations go towards paying for the
artwork. This is myelin games, and I hope you enjoy
this latest destiny 2 lore episode. [INTRO]
There are three main sources of Lore for the Drifter, the first is the book within your
Triumphs, called, a Drifter’s Gambit, the second and the third source of lore is the
Gambit weapon and armour lore tabs. In relative chronological order, the Drifter
is revived as a Guardian, or as they were referred to in the early days of the Collapse,
the Risen. Soon after being revived, the Drifter leaves
Earth. This is told to us in the Artifacts and Old
Friends chapter of the book a Drifter’s Gambit. It reads,
“He told me he left the system as soon as he was risen. Not immediately, sure. Had to get his bearings, find a ship—get
it fit, get it flying. But soon as, he was good as gone. ‘Drawn to the outer,’ he says. I can appreciate.” The Ancient Apocalypse Hood lore tab expands
further and explains how the Drifter left the system at the Dawn of the City Age with
his crew, and that they were in search of something greater than the light. The lore tab reads,
Anyway, my crew, or a little subset of it, we leave the system together. Dawn of the City Age at the time. We were looking for somethin’ greater than
Light. ‘Cuz we had seen that Light can be the cause
of… so much strife. The Drifter doesn’t specifically describe
what he saw that made him somewhat against the light, however other lore tabs describe
how the Drifter lived through the Dark Age. For those not familiar with Destiny’s history,
we had a golden age when the Traveler arrived, with great technology and prosperity, however
following the Collapse was the Dark Age, when many humans turned against each other. In addition, the first guardians, were not
necessarily good, and some become warlords. The Drifter speaks about how he had kept all
his weapons from the Dark Age, so it likely that he witnessed Warlord Guardians, and hence
this encouraged his search for something more powerful than the light. The Warlords were eventually defeated by the
Iron Lords and the Drifter likely witnessed guardians fighting guardians. The Ancient Apocalypse Greaves reads,
No one made Dark Age guns anymore. Drifter had looked far and wide. The one source of Dark Age weaponry in this
system was him. Gambit. Dark Age weapons had been forged at a time
when Light fought Light. Everything was just a little more efficient
back then. And lethal. In Drifter’s opinion, of course. From what I have read, it seems that the Drifter’s
experience during the Dark Age, and seeing light vs light, is what triggered him to leave
the system and pursue something more than the light. It does not outright say in these lore tabs,
however, you could suspect The Drifter as a member of the Shadows of Yor, Guardians
who pursued the Darkness like Dredgen Yor. However, in my opinion, the Drifter is a true
Drifter, he fits in with any group in order to ensure his survival. Regardless, the Drifter left our system in
search of something greater than the light, and what did he and his crew find? Well, they found a planet with energy that
suppressed and consumed the Light. The Drifter compares it to the abilities of
Thorn, as Thorn can consume the light of Guardians, permanently defeating them. Have a listen to the Ancient Apocalypse Hood. We searched far and wide. Must’ve been… hundreds of years. We found a planet beyond the system bristlin’
with an energy that repulsed Light. Naturally, we were curious. We landed. Intended to settle and conduct the research
necessary to make this energy portable. A weapon outta legend called Thorn had similar,
Light-repressing capabilities. I am not too sure what this energy is yet,
is it the Darkness, is it Taken energy? The Drifter would not have encountered the
Taken yet because he would have already left Earth by the time Oryx attacked. IN addition to this energy, the crew found
creatures caged upon the planet, and the creatures seem to have absorbed some of these light-repressing
capabilities. The Ancient Apocalypse Robes reads,
We discovered some kind of alien monolith, a facility left by the inhabitants of that
planet long gone by then. But trapped inside was a creature. In a cage of some sort, frozen in ice. An exhibit? Was it some kind of zoo? Still not sure to this day. We should’ve brought a scientist. All we had were… well, guys who thought
we looked tough in dark colors. During our long stay on that planet, we found
many of those monoliths, each with their own captured creature. Anyway, this thing—the creature—looked
like it shared common bioenergetics with the Hive, but there were no records then or since
that I’ve ever seen of humanity’s encounters with them. And the creature had a property the Hive did
not have. It produced a field that repressed Light—like
a Darkness Zone but contained to a gooey, vacuous form with no head. So, whatever lived on this planet, had captured
these creatures, these hive like creatures, and either experimented on them, or after
the planet was abandoned, the creatures somehow absorbed this dark energy. The Drifter and his crew discovered that the
creations frozen in the cages were also roaming the planet and one of the crew members is
killed in his sleep. Have a listen to the Ancient Apocalypse Gloves,
it reads, Plenty of ’em roaming around out in the wild,
where it was cold, but less cold than the frozen cages that contained the ones in the
monoliths. How’d we find out? Well, one of us died in our sleep. Not that uncommon or tragic, actually. Happened a lot. Damn cold out there. Except this time that fella’s Ghost couldn’t
resurrect him. Turns out one’a those creatures just slithered
by, and close proximity to it from inside our shelter just… silenced that poor bastard’s
Light. It was unfortunate, but it also lit a fire
under us. The next morning we realized we had a potential
weapon on our hands that could change everything in battles of Light versus Light. Slithered by… like a snake, is this why
the symbol for Gambit is a snake! The Drifter encountered these creatures. Whatever, this creature is, it just drained
the light from a Guardian, who then just died in his sleep from the cold of the Planet. Realising that the creatures could be used
as a weapon during light vs light battles, the Drifted and his crew plan to capture and
extract the creatures abilities. The crew had spent a year on the planet with
no success of catching or taming the creatures… and then the events of the Red War occurred,
back in our system, Ghaul invaded and contained the Traveler’s light. The Drifter and his crew despite their distance
from the Traveler, lost their light. When the Drifter and his crew lost their light,
they panicked and turned their weapons upon each other thinking they had been betrayed. Now as mortals, the Drifter was the only one
to leave. Have a listen to the Ancient Apocalypse Bond,
it reads, We were at our wit’s end. A year on the planet, and we had been completely
unable to capture or tame the creatures that had become our sole objective… Our ship had long been rendered useless by
the extreme cold. We had all died a hundred thousand times over
to the cold… One day, when we had settled in for the night
in another monolith, something swept over the planet. I later learned it swept across the system. All’a you hearing this felt it. You were there at the source. All four of us lost our Light. And we knew it. We looked over at the monolith-creature in
its frozen cage. It seemed to stare right back. I think I mentioned we’re all raving psychos
at this point. Well, we did what all measured raving psychos
would do. We thought we each had been betrayed by the
others. We drew on each other. To this day, I’m not sure how many of those
guys drew intending to kill. But I’ll tell you this. I was the only one who walked out. The creature in that monolith watched it all. When it was over, I stuck a finger straight
up at it. It was just me now. How’d I get from there to here? Maybe I’ll get to tell that story someday. So, we don’t know how the Drifter escaped
this planet, we don’t know if he did eventually tame this creature, we don’t know if the
creature seeing this act of murder encouraged it to team up with the Drifter. BUT what we do know, is the Drifter escaped
and following this, he had some very impressive technology, Malfeasance and his ship towing
a mysterious artefact. Have a listen to the lore tab of Malfeasance. It’ll be a lot safer with you wearin’ one
of these. It’s the culmination of a lot of things. Long time ago I set out to find a replacement
for a weapon called Thorn. This will never be that, but to me, it’s better. We built it together. This weapon, sounds like a weapon that was
born from that time on the icy planet with the creatures that suppressed the Light. He mentioned that he was trying to find a
Thorn replacement whilst on the planet, and I believe Malfesance is that weapon. At this stage, the Drifter seems like a villain,
however, you have to acknowledge that even though he has made a weapon that is similar
to thorn, a guardian killer, he did this because of what he witnessed during the Dark Age,
light vs light. Now here, is where it gets even more interesting. How does the Drifter summon the Taken, well
that is explained, and even though we only see Motes of Light in the Gambit mode, the
Drifter appears to have Motes of Dark. The Book, the Drifter’s Gambit follows an
investigation conducted by Shin Malphur. Well, we assume it is Shin Malphur because
the notes are written by a Renegade Hunter and Shin Malphur was known as a Renegade Hunter,
in addition there are a number of other clues that indicate the book is narrated by Shin
Malphur. For those who don’t know, Shin Malfur was
a Hunter who used a Golden Gun to kill Dredgen Yor. Shin Malphur was mentored by Jaren Ward, and
would eventually inherit Jaren’s Ghost. Dredgen Yor was a Guardian who was corrupted
by the Hive and created Thorn, a weapon capable of draining the light of Guardian. Following the death of Dredgen Yor, a cult
spawned, known as the Shadows of Yor, these were guardians who wanted to walk in the footsteps
of Dredgen Yor, and believed that Dredgen Yor was right in his corruption and pursuit
of the Darkness. The Shadows of Yor would go on to replicate
Thorn. You can see how there is overlap between the
Shadows of Yor and what the Drifter wanted to achieve, and this is how the two storylines
intersect. Shin Malphur is tracking down the Shadows
of Yor to defeat them, and at some point after escaping the icy planet, The Drifter is associated
with the Shadows of Yor. He is described as running with their crew. This is how Shin Malphur first came across
the Drifter. While, the Drifter shared similar goals to
the Shadows of Yor, i.e. pursing something more powerful than the light, I don’t think
the Drifter is a Shadow Of Yor, he was just associated with them. Shin is not entirely sure if the Drifter can
be trusted, but rather than killing him, Shin continues to observe the Drifter, believing
he could be used as bait to draw out the Shadows Of Yor. By chance, the Drifter and Shin cross paths,
and meet, and in fact talk. The Drifter tells tales of journeys across
the system and discovery of powerful relics and artefacts, Unsure, if this is all a big
lie, Shin starts to ask many more questions, and the Drifter changes subjects by asking
if he ever knew a man called Callum. Of course, Shin knew a man named Callum, as
Callum is revealed as a Shadow of Yor and on Shin’s hit list. How the Drifter knew this, how the Drifter
knew that Shin was interested in hunting Callum, we don’t know, did he accidently reveal
Callum’s identity to Shin, or did the Drifter know exactly who Shin was, and who he was
hunting. It is important to note, that Shin believes
his identity is hidden from the Drifter, Shin believes the Drifter does not know that he
is the infamous golden gun hunter who defeated dredgen yor. The fact that the Drifter knew to change the
topic to Callum, suggests otherwise. The Drifter gives Shin Malphur the hideout
of Callum, a Shadow of Yor, and Shin is successful in tracking down Callum and defeating him. The scene is brutal, Callum actually has a
fight with his ghost, Callum kills his ghost with a literally thorn, a bullet from the
gun thorn, draining the light from his ghost only to be momentarily killed by Shin. Following Shin’s successful assassination
of Callum, Shin and the Drifter have a further conversation, and the Drifter reveals what
his ship is towing. He has created a pocket Ascendant Plane, a
prison for a Taken Army, and this is where the Drifter gets the Taken from, for the mode
Gambit. Have a listen. “He’s kit-bashed Vex tech with Fallen components,
married it to Hive magic, and scavenged Golden Age science with a sprinkling of who knows
what, and he’s… “He’s secured a pocket of the Ascendant plane. Not a throne world, nothing that grand, but
a big enough chunk to matter—and he’s gone and caged an army. A Taken army. Leftovers from Oryx’s reign? Something new? Something old? Something… Hers? Can’t say. Don’t know. But he has ’em there. He says it’s to hold ’em, study ’em—but
the best bet says his intentions aren’t so clean. What…. What? This is so crazy, yet cool. So this is how they justify the mode Gambit,
the Drifter is helping us prepare fighting the Taken, and that is why he is allowed to
run this mode with Guardians. However, Shin Malphur also has another plan,
Shin wants to run Gambit in order to lure out any more Shadows of Yor, Shin believes
that Guardians who participate in Gambit and witness the Taken may reveal themselves as
Shadows. Have a listen. “We watch the action. We watch him. We watch who plays and who doesn’t. On top of that, we watch their aggression—who’s
diving too deep, too fast, who’s less keen to grow their knowledge, their strength. And who’s simply lookin’ to unleash themselves. “The true promise of this Gambit is what you
and I can learn. About our enemies. Maybe even about ourselves. That has to be first and foremost. After that, we assess Gambit’s value and its
risks. If the danger escalates, we shut it down. If any Guardians go too far, we shut it down—and
them, if need be. Shin is trying to work which guardians are
likely to fall to the darkness and the Shadows of Yor. The Drifter gets approval to run Gambit, however
Shin still does not trust him. And it is not long until Shin’s gut feeling
is proven right, the Drifter did not tell the Tower about the Primevals, these Taken
that had never been seen before, ever. Shin doesn’t even know how the Drfiter got
them, or maybe even made them. Have a listen. What concerns me is… he’d never mentioned
the word “Primeval” before. Not once. And that’s a problem for obvious reasons. “Tearing soldiers of the Deep from another
realm is crossin’ a bridge too far as is. But those beasts? Those weren’t normal Taken possessed and set
to rage. They were born of that shadow realm and they
were… angry. Worse. They were hungry for the Light. You could feel it. Even a ways off. Their aura and their rage weighed on me—cast
a shadow I could feel in my core. Regardless, Gambit is continued, Shin believes
that the nature of Gambit will draw out the Shadows of Yor and allow them to defeat the
Shadows. Now, here is another thing that is NOT revealed
to Shin, the Drifter can control the Primevals with a Mote of Dark, not a Mote of Light,
a Mote of Dark. Whilst scavenging, the Drifter encounters
some Cabal and used a Mote of Dark to summon a Primeval and destroy the Cabal. Have a listen to the Ancient Apocalypse vest,
it reads, Drifter licked his finger and slid it behind
a hidden panel on the bank’s outer shell to crack the thing open. It unfolded, ejecting a single, compressed
Mote. A Mote of Dark, he called it. He could see it glow despite the shining sun
overhead. It was chill to the touch, an effect of the
bank. This particular haul was worth a hundred and
two singular Motes of Dark. A one-sided slaughter. The Ancient Apocalypse Grips and Strides continues
the story. Have a listen. He eyed the approaching squad of soldiers
bristling with armor and weapons. The Mote of Dark was cold to the touch in
his hand. Drifter stuck a single finger in the air at
them. He imagined the Cabal narrowing their eyes
at him under the helmets. [Why does your kind always insist on fighting
even when you are so hopelessly outgunned?] Drifter shook his head. “I won’t fight. I like to watch,” he says, and keyed the Mote
of Dark in his hand. An unearthly howl filled his ears and he cursed. He never quite got used to it. The sky turned a shade of fiery green and
split in half. Nine creatures that Guardians would know as
Primevals stepped onto the sand of the Emerald Coast, out of place, impossible, massive,
and wrong. What!?! he calls the Primeval with a Mote
of Dark. He gets this mote of Dark from a Bank on his
ship, and I have to wonder, when we bank motes of light, is the Drifter doing something with
it, is he converting them to Motes of Dark to control the Taken. This is why Gambit, is called Gambit, the
definition of the word Gambit is an act or remark that is calculated to gain an advantage,
especially at the outset of a situation. We have taking a risk allowing the Drifter
into the City, the Gambit is, that we can use the Drifter to lure the Shadows of Yor,
but the risk is, we cannot trust the Drifter. That concludes this latest destiny 2 lore
episode. If you would like to support the channel and
cannot think of comment, you can leave the word, Gambit, which essentially represents
the entire lore of the Drifter in one word! As usual, it has been a pleasure, this is
myelin games. Peace.

    After listening back to the video, I totally think the Drifter is using us. We kill things, collect motes, bank the motes, the bank converts it to the Mote of Dark, the Mote of Dark can be used to control the Taken Primeval…. WTF!? When you play Gambit it never says, Mote of Light, it just says Mote.

  • Isaac Garcia says:

    Or forge some devastating weapon of some sort probably.

  • D0OM says:

    Stumbled on you, subbed, Top draw!

  • mokusmormota says:

    well, those are motes of light, no probs, but like… compressing light to make dark ?
    or just using the motes of light in the pocketdimension for something with the taken ?
    maybe he trades with them ? maybe the taken willing to fight for the motes ?
    what the taken use the light for ?

  • Martin Dooley says:

    Mote of Dark.

  • Jesus Frankenstein says:

    I believe he's the start of the story allowing us to explore a path towards Darkness, which I adore. Especially after the supposed "leak" of Destiny 3's story having something to do with your Guardian wielding the Darkness.

    Mark my words. The Drifter is the beginning.

  • Crazy Garrett says:

    In the malfeasance quest, one of the quest steps requires you to bank “motes of dark”. Banking any notes will consistently increase the percent of the quest step. This confirms that we don’t bank notes of light, we only pick up and bank motes of dark in gambit

  • Paxton Kocka says:

    the traveler is an orb, motes of light are orbs

    the triangular ships represent the darkness, gambit motes are triangular

  • Ayden Rowe says:

    I think that when we deposite motes of light, the vault corrupts them into motes of dark.

  • A spo mainy boi says:

    Well, he gives some nice weapons so hes ok in my book

  • Issam Khatouf says:

    Even if he is evil I doubt anything else will happen if anything the drifter will continue to host gambit until Destiny 3 otherwise if he does betray us at any point in D2 they’d have to take out gambit and that would probably piss off a lot of people who liked the game mode

  • Ein Ledah says:

    I think he’s creating and cultivating darkness powers, similar to arc, solar, and void. He’s collecting motes of dArk for some unknown reAson, well regular motes we know charges supers. They are synonymous with the light. There’s a line that the drifter will say sometimes if your near him, it’s something along the lines of “there are things in the dark only the darkness can destroy”. Anyways I’m sure raising some Take’n army has a hand in it to.

  • lennox powers says:

    There are talks of guardians using the darkness in Destiny 3. What if he's the door to that? The higher your rank in gambit, the more you reset, the closer to the dark you are. What if it's how you get access to the dark. What if, for a guardian to use the dark, they first have to lose the light? We already did that part, just like him.

  • SJNaka101 says:

    What if the bank compresses motes of light into motes of dark?

  • James Lee says:

    We are literally banking motes of Darkness. When was that even a question?

  • Serhiy Sadurskyy says:

    also, interesting fact that when you are doing quest step "business as usual" – it directly says that you need to deposit motes of dark

  • Jeffrey Previlon says:

    Mote of dark 💀

  • OtoriJTV says:

    Anyone wonder if the thing Drifter found was an Ahamkara. His escape from that planet is miraculous to me. Maybe his lack of visible corruption are due to a bargain he made.

  • Imperial Gunner says:

    Maybe wen we bank notes of light we’re are actually feeding the creature they found and he surprised the motes to dark.

  • Aldo Cruz says:

    But drifter is a shadow of Yur, he calls them his crew and the reason he gives us a malfeasance is because he wants us to support him. He is being hunted by the renegade hunter and gives away callum after callum stole the weapon core from him for malfeasance. I think when he says “we made it together” he is talking about us making it because he doesn’t plan on using malfeasance alone, he wants his whole crew to use it against the hunter.

  • 1990skelly says:

    The drifter isn't evil but I will tell you who probably is, Zavala. Somehow gains access to any location we are asst and impeded us. Stands in the way of unity between the reef. And just gives me the creeps the way he is portrayed.

  • Hoyry Yin says:

    Any one think that ice planet fundament

  • Matt Bator says:

    Any details on the AR in the background gameplay?

  • Vanilla Game Play says:

    101 motes = 1 more of dark and or opens the panel to grab the mote of dark, what if you actually managed as a team to drop that many in and tried blowing up the bank prior to the prime evil drops.

    Also I theorize that he's collecting the motes to actually summon an army of prime evils. Considering the amount of times he says he will make us rich if we give him motes, if his objective is to obtain God knows how many motes it would be easy to assume he's ultimate goal is to fill his "prison" with nothing but prime evils

  • A Guitarist says:

  • Kristophmarauder says:

  • thatbratshinji says:

    I thought Drifter was talking about us building the gun together

  • Kazem Edmond says:

    Great video. Do you think the frozen creatures are the Primevals? Also, your description of the lore helps explain the Dredgen title that we can earn by "falling too deep" into Gambit.

  • MrOdd says:

    mote of dark

  • Corin Salisbury says:

    I’m 10000% sure that the motes in gambit have always been called motes of dark and were just short handed to “motes.” There have been other things with motes of light, but gambit is not one of them.

  • Dracrek says:

    Mote of Dark

  • Jacob Jernigan says:

    Moot o Derk

  • Jake the Snake says:

    It literally says we collect motes of dark in the game

  • Alan Epps says:

    Thank you! Awesome as always!

  • Clone 033 says:

    My bet is that jokers wild will be is collecting more powerful taken than he can get

  • Wade Wilson says:

    I think the bank converts motes of light, to dark.

  • Keron Stewart says:

    sorry but for those people that believe drifter is dredgen yor, your dead wrong. if drifter was yor there was no way the vanguard would allow him in the tower let alone keep him alive!

    also you guys REALLY NEED to read the lore on the drifter as well as the lores for D1 and see how ludicrous this theory is!

    BUUUUUUUT, Then again, people dismissed the notion of uldren coming back let alone the possibility of him being the next hunter vanguard and look what happens! their having to eat a MASSIVE AMOUNT TO CROW AS WE SPEAK!

    soooo, I wouldn't completely ignore that theory cause bungie have done a 180 on the lore before!

    and its as ikora once said to our fav gensym scribe. "CHALLENGE YOUR ASSUMPTIONS ASHER MIR! IT'S THE IMPOSSIBLE THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS!"

  • Sean Parker says:

    Anyone wondering why the Drifter's face is totally different in the season 6 promotions photo? That's no accident my friends 😉 Rezyl Azzir (aka the Drifter) found a way to change his face if you read the lore. He also controls the Taken and has the power to summon Primevals for a reason. Cayde basically stated in the Ace of Spades quest that he could be Dredgen of Yor. There's a lot of contradicting theories but one things for sure – the Drifter is far from good.

  • Sean Parker says:

    With Uldren Sov coming to the tower to represent the Vanguard, is it probable that the Drifter and Uldren will plot together once the Drifter reveals Uldren's past to him in order to defeat the guardians together? An evil dynamic duo could soon try to overthrow all the light bearers in the Destiny universe! Muahahaha!

  • Leeaf_ Gaming says:

    Mote of darkness

  • That guy who left a comment says:

    Ya know this franchise tries to pack in so much ethical and moral things to ponder on but in the end the only thing we can ever do is shoot and take whatever situation our guardians near muteness gets us into

  • Psycho Radi99 says:

    Personally I REALLY love the idea of the Drifter being quasi evil and I truly hope in Jokers Wild we can start to trail away from the Vanguard! Zavala has continued to irk me being too much by the book and after the death of Cayde coupled with the semi leaks that D3 will have Dark Guardians I am PUMPED!!!! (Reminds me of the Grey Jedi's from Star Wars Universe)

    I feel like the primeval is actually the creature on the planet mixed with taken or the he had the taken crupt the creature

  • Michael Dinno says:

    mote of dark

  • sortaisle says:

    Tough in dark clothes…I wonder if the Drifter is a proto-Arach for Dead Orbit.

  • gppgoldchains says:

    they describe primevals in the lore as much worse and more angry taken and stuff but in game there just bigger versions of the already existing taken models

  • Jackmerius Tacktheritrix says:

    12;07 pretty sure he's referring to us, the player and him building Malfeasance together. He didn't build Malfeasance a long time ago so he couldn't have built it with the creatures.

  • SinnohChallenger - Gaming says:

    Is the planet Fundament? Like, where the Hive came from? After all, the Hive left Fundament on a conquest, and he compares the energy to that of Thorn, a very Hive looking weapon.

  • Gallindor Darion says:

    After completing malfeasance, it makes what drifter says about how and where the gun is made more like he's making them in the tower with guardians who excel at Gambit. Is it possible he needed other guardians to compete in Gambit to get enough compressed motes to use in the gun Malfeasance, and each guardian who helps make one, gets one? Assuming that each guardian who does is tied with the Dark and therefore interested in taking down Shin Malphur?

  • kSpades says:

    We kill enemies, they drop motes of light, we bank the motes of light, if we bank enough a primeval is summoned. I’m think the primeval feeds on light

  • kSpades says:

    I bearly play gambit you guys are all Dredgens of Yur Shins on your ass

  • Anthony Wilson says:

    Mote of dark

  • Eddie Stuckey says:

    'We made it together' could also be a reference to him and his crew. Dredgen Yor was a lone gun, the Drifter not so

  • Omnitoki • says:

    He’s evil he tells you that your team sucks if you lose and he isn’t really kidding.

  • CKhirikasVonCP F says:

    Drifter’s ice world is Anthem confirmed.

  • Jayden Fisher says:

    Wouldn't be so cool in the Joker's Wild DLC that you can SUMMON a Primeval?? In PVE of course, Jesus if a taken was spotted during a crucible match, Our and Drifters arses are going to be hunted by Shin and the Tower.

  • Superwarrior627 says:

    Cayde knows what he’s really up to remember the recordings?

  • Charles Revelle says:

    In sure it's been mentioned but I don't think he made malfecense with those creatures but with the guardian(us)…

    Now that I have watched this video, I can think that Shin Malphur is going to reveal himself in Drifter’s Gambit next year.
    I hope he does.
    Like if you want to see Shin Malphur in Joker’s Wild!

  • Johnny Silverhand says:

    The drifter says something pretty creepy. "Just wait and see what I'm doing with all these motes, it's gonna make you shiver" or something similar to that

  • Entertainment says:

    This makes me wonder how bungie is gonna great guardian vs guardian in d3… its not just gonna be crucible it’s gonna be permanent.. not just a game. Maybe something like the division with more shields so that you don’t just die from one rocket shot.

  • Shinobi Inquisitor Fivecraft says:

    I have an alternative theory instead of us banking motes of dark maybe we actually are banking motes of light and the bank is what generates those upon a guardian killing an enemy and those are used to summon the taken which the bank uses their darkness energy to create motes of dark just like when you enter the portal it converts your light to dark energy also generating the motes of dark which with enough light it feeds a primeval generating more dark motes which are compressed into a controlling mote of darkness which allowed that very feat of summoning multiple primevals which is why we need so many motes to generate the dark motes for malfeasance Im sure this sounds crazy but hey it's possible

    Is "Crimson" gun achievable only in Gambit? Just askin, i like the design and i'd like to have it.

  • Samuel Carter says:

    I do not think he is evil but believes in different sources of power than the light.

  • Corey Burks says:

    It has already been stated that the light is in all things, and so is the darkness. Guardians are forged in the light. The taken feed on the light. We are probably just filling the bank up with food to feed the drifters taken army. Motes of dark control the prime evils. I would think that only a creature that has been forged in the darkness can use motes of darkness. Maybe that's what happened to the drifter on that planet. Either he turned to the darkness, ir he is not the same drifter that left earth due to whatever reasons.

    What shotgun is that at around 3:50

  • Multi verse says:

    It says the drifter was troubled when you get the last word

  • Maxon214 says:

    Mote of Dark

  • John Martin says:

    Saying is the drifter evil is silly. The drifter is a means to an end. The drifter knows that as a guardian you run the line of light and dark. Gambit is a way to show what type of guardian you are

  • vegarosa69 says:

    So what about now that we have to side with either the Drifter or the Vanguard? So far the repercussions don't seem to be too significant, but what about after the next update?

  • ROD SQUAD EXTREAM GAMING AND STREAMING says:

    Even if the drifters turn out to betray us if he going to give us the tools to survive then I’ll take it

  • Chapo says:

    Imagine using Jotunn…

  • Calixto Erico says:

    Mote of dark. I'd never trust him.

  • HighSkilled YT says:

    I think he is evil ive heard him say "dont tell anyone about gambit especially zavala."

  • Act Jokinglyric says:

    I’m not sure if you have covered the malfeasance lore but drifter and the guardian (us) actually made malfeasance together in the exotic quest

  • Urban Vendetta says:

    What autorifle is that

  • Brian Marshall says:

    Killing enemies with our light creates a mote of light. When we bank the motes they compress and become motes of dark. Emperor Calus would want drifter at his side so he could have taken fight at his side along with the hive. Can we get some lore of calus’s opinion on drifter and vice versa
