Umbral Engrams are going to a huge area of interest for Guardians during Destiny 2 Season of Arrivals. Umbral Engrams can be decoded in the Umbral Decoder, but you can also change them, and their loot tables can be focused in the Prismatic Recaster. You can pick what type of Engram you wish to create, then use various resources earned from bounties available at the Prismatic Recaster to alter them to your tastes.
This kind of targeted way to earn loot is sure to interest lots of players out there. When it comes to getting your hands on Umbral Engrams, there are a few sources of them in the game.
- General drops – Umbral Engrams can drop in the same way as normal Engrams. I had them just drop from slain enemies, and gotten them as a reward at the end of Public Events. There are also reports of people getting them from Strikes, Nightfalls, and Crucible matches, so they seem to simply drop in the same way that standard Engrams do, although they are a little rarer from what we can tell right now.
- The Season Pass – your Season pass will have a limited number of Umbral Engrams that you can earn as rewards for leveling up.
- Level up the Prismatic Recaster – each time you level up the Prismatic Recaster using Twisted Energy, you will get an Umbral Engram.
- Finally, you can earn some extra Umbral Engrams with certain perks that you get from upgraded the Prismatic Recaster. Read these perks carefully so you know what they are giving you, and when.
This is everything we know about getting Umbral Engrams at the moment, but we will update the guide with more information as we get through the new seasonal content.
