Umbral Engrams have been introduced in the new Destiny 2 Season of Arrivals. You can use these at the Drifter’s new machine in order to access new gear and weapons that are part of the new season. In this Destiny 2 Umbral Engram guide, we are going to walk you through how you can get Umbral Engrams in the game and how you can focus them to get that hard-earned loot.
How To Get And Focus Umbral Engrams In Destiny 2 Season of Arrivals
Before you get the Umbral Engrams, you need to do a couple of missions in order to help the Drifter set up the Umbral Decoder and Prismatic Recaster. Once these are online you will get Umbral Engram rewards that drop just like Legendary Engrams in Destiny 2.
They can fall in pretty much any activity and event including Public Events, Strikes, Nightfalls and Patrols. You can also get the Umbral Engrams by levelling up your Prismatic Recaster. This takes 500 Twisted Energy for each level. You can earn Twisted Energy by completing weekly bounties that you will find in this machine.
Umbral Engrams can also be earned by picking up passive perks in the Prismatic Recaster. Abilities like Umbral Discovery I will give you a bonus Umbral Engram every time you complete a Strike, Nightfall, Gambit or Crucible match in Destiny 2. The last way to earn these Engrams is by levelling up your Season Pass.
How To Focus An Umbral Engram And Get Rewards
Now that you have got a couple of Umbral Engrams, you need to open them up in order to get your loot. Take these to the Drifter. Return to the Tower and head over the room where the Drifter is. Next to him, you will find the Prismatic Recaster.
Use the machine and select the Umbral Focusing option to open a new menu. This is where you can decide what kind of engram you are going to make. You can choose between Season of Arrivals weapon engram, armor engram, Legacy Engram and one that drops Gambit loot. More types are expected to unlock when as you progress through the Season of Arrivals.
You get some free focuses each week but you will need to spend some materials once those run out. You can get Altered Elements from completing Prismatic Recaster Daily Bounties. Once you have selected what you want, head over to the Umbral Decoder to get your loot.
