You can get Riptide in Destiny 2 by playing the Crucible game mode. Riptide drops randomly from Crucible playlists, so you should get one sooner rather than later. 

While you can't directly increase the drop rate of Riptide in Destiny 2, you can increase the number of legendary gear you acquire from playlist activities by equipping the Crucible variant of the Prosperity ghost mod.
