The Reckoning takes place in The Drifter’s ship, affectionately known as “The Ball.” That gigantic planetoid you’ve been seeing since Destiny 2 began? Jason's Steam library has 1,400+ games at the moment so he definitely has a lot of things to talk about. I mean I wouldn't have exactly praised anyone at Bungie for bringing him back as a totally different character but at the same time I probably would have moved on. Loading, please wait. I don't hear anything about Drifter=Yor theories, so unless it's on Reddit, your post is irrelevant. It makes sense that the Joker’s Wild DLC will add bounties you can complete earning rewards from the shady peddler. It’s more than likely that we’ll end up discovering what had happened to him, and his “connection” with The Drifter. Also he said once we collected the last word he said that gun killed one of his best friends. The Emissary of the Nine referring to him as "Dredgen" is just confirmation that The Drifter was a member of the Shadows of Yor...which people into the lore already suspected. I feel like it's unlikely to happen, but would be really interesting if it did. Once all those Triumphs are unlocked, players can activate the Gambit Seal, and equip the Dredgen title.
However unlikely i suppose it's possible that after the events of Dwindler's Ridge, Rezyl Azzir's ghost resurrected him and he started calling himself the Drifter. Meanwhile, in D1, if you got within 5000ft of a Rasputin Complex you were under threat from orbiting weapons of mass destruction that would be bring death and calamity without a second thought. Going even so far as to activate SIVA and [i]consuming[/i] the remaining Iron Lords that made it to the complex. A particularly chilling moment happens as well when The Drifter tells the Emissary that he’s “not Dredgen” anymore.
The Shadows of Yor are a group of Guardians who idolize the infamous Dredgen Yor to the point that they utilize replicas of Yor's signature weapon, Thorn, and have adopted new names in honor of him; most disturbingly, they have even explained away his terrible misdeeds by claiming it was all a lie, that he turned because he had no choice. With new twists in Gambit Prime, and yes, even new twists to the lore, along with pinnacle weapons and Gambit Prime armor sets to chase (and even private matches with friends), Joker’s Wild is shaping up to be an engaging new addition to Destiny 2. Even though they had the planet so locked down so well you couldn't even transmat a sparrow safely... It starts with earning the Playing for Keeps badge, which is unlocked by collecting every piece of armor, weapon, emblem, shader, Ghost shell, Sparrow, and ship that drops from the Gambit playlist.
The text, Dredgen, appears on their own character inspection screen and it also appears to other players above their head under their gamertag.
