How to Get a Weak Synthesizer in Destiny 2 Season of the Drifter
Destiny 2’s Season of the Drifter is here, and with it comes a host of new Gambit and Drifter themed content for players to peruse. The Tower is going to be very “green” in time for Saint Paddy’s Day, that’s for sure. If you’re here, you probably saw that you need a weak synthesizer to enter The Reckoning, and are wondering how do you get a weak synthesizer and what it’s actually used for. Here’s everything you need to know.
The first thing you need to do is go to the Tower and speak to the Drifter in his new location, which is in the Annex of the Tower. He has a new Quest for you that will bring you along the various new content added in Destiny 2’s Season of the Drifter.
Getting the Weak Synthesizer
After you’ve spoken to him and accepted his quest, you’ll see that the first step is to complete a Prime Bounty. These are the new Gambit bounties that are offered up by the Drifter that deal with Gambit Prime specific actions only. You’ll need to complete this step in order to get the weak synthesizer.
You can distinguish them from the older bounties by the fact that they look different, and that they offer synths, such as Sentry Synth, as a reward. Grab all of them to be safe unless you’re really strapped for Glimmer, then just pick the one you think you can complete the quickest.
Then, after that, go out and play Gambit Prime. Make sure that you try and complete at least one of your Prime Bounties so that you can progress in the quest. After you’ve completed it, feel free to go ahead and complete the bounty and obtain the reward.
Return to the Drifter and he’ll give you the weak synthesizer and task you with going on and completing a run of The Reckoning
What It’s Used For in The Reckoning
As for what the weak synthesizer is used for in entering The Reckoning, you can put armor synths that you collect from Gambit Prime into it by pressing Triangle/Y to interact with it from your Pursuits tab, and then picking one of the Synths from the empty slot.
Once you’ve done this, enter The Reckoning from the Gambit menu in the director and then you’ll be matched with other players.
When you spawn in, offer your weak armor mote (for example, if you loaded a sentry synth it would be a weak sentry mote) to the bank in front of you. You’re wagering this, meaning if you don’t complete the run, the mote will be lost. If you complete the run though, you’ll get a new piece of special Gambit armor. Sweet.
Luckily, to start you only have access to tier 1, which will give you weaker armor rewards, but it’s pretty hard to lose provided you and your team are at least at or near the recommended power level of 650.
Your goal is to kill things as fast as you can as a group until you reach 100% dominance. At that point, a boss will spawn, so kill it and you’ll win. If you want to keep going with the same group, you can stay where you are, add another synth to your weak synthesizer, and run it again.
That does it for how to get a weak synthesizer and what it’s used for in Destiny 2’s Season of the Drifter. For more tips and tricks, search Twinfinite.
