Bungie’s latest Destiny 2 season begins today, and in the run up to its launch we’ve been learning some intriguing new things about its star character The Drifter.
The Drifter has been hanging around The Tower since the launch of September’s Forsaken expansion, and amongst Destiny’s cast of do-gooder heroes he’s stuck out for being a decidedly shadier guy. He’s been around the block, seen some real shit, and when he was left stranded with his crew in the wilderness, thought nothing of permanently offing them to save himself.
Gambit, the in-game activity he represents, sees two teams of Guardians fighting against each other mostly via the proxy of Darkness enemies. And it’s this summoning of enemies like the Taken which sets The Drifter apart. The only thing good guys are supposed to do with these enemies is shoot them – not summon them up as allies.
