How to get Gambit memento in Destiny 2

Mementos are brand-new ornaments that can be applied to craftable weapons in Destiny 2. Here's how to get the only one available.
How to get Gambit memento in Destiny 2

Destiny 2's latest expansion, The Witch Queen, brought a complete overhaul of almost the entire system in the game. From loot chasing with the introduction of weapon crafting, to cosmetics, as Bungie has added mementos.

If you don't know what we're talking about, mementos are essentially unique cosmetics that are handed out by different vendors, or found through other sources within each location.

Unlike shaders (more on that later) or specific weapon ornaments, mementos act more comparable to transmog items in the sense that they can be applied to weapons you craft via the Glaive, boasting a slew of features to enhance the look of your gun. 

Let's talk about how you can get your hands on the only available one so far in Destiny 2, the Gambit memento. 

How to earn Gambit memento in Destiny 2

First off, as the name suggests, you'll have to pay a visit to the PvE mode Gambit, which received some substantial changes for Season of the Risen/The Witch Queen. 

Beyond that, it's all up to the RNG Gods to bless you with some fortune, as the memento drops once you complete a match, whether you win or lose. 

If you manage to earn it, this is what it'll look like in your inventory:

It's important to note that if you drop a memento and don't use it, you won't get any more until you've spent the one in your inventory. Furthermore, they are one-time consumables.

Great, so you got a memento, now for the fun part -- what does it do?

What do mementos do in Destiny 2 

As we've said, mementos are cosmetic enhancements for weapons you craft using the Glaive. Simply go through the process as you normally do and add the memento to the proper slot before wrapping up.

Now, there are three levels of enhancements provided by the memento, each with its own unique reward. For the Gambit memento, these are:

  • Level 1: Gambit activity tracker
  • Level 20: Primeval Usurper weapon title
  • Level 30: Exclusive shader

As you can see, leveling the memento is shaping up to be a very tedious grind, so it's best to apply it on weapons you know you'll be sticking with for most of your upcoming Season of the Risen grind.

Also, keep in mind, Bungie will be adding more and more in the upcoming weeks and potentially seasons. So expect mementos for Crucible, Vanguard Ops, and possibly even Raid-themed ones in the near future.
