With this August’s Season of Plunder seasonal event in Destiny 2 comes the return of one of the most divisive weapons in the game, the Mindbender. Better yet, this cherished yet most hated weapon also comes in with a new set of perks alongside its old visual design that has stuck in the minds of many Destiny 2 players.
This shotgun follows Bungie’s trend of revitalizing old Nightfall weapons, whose most recent push started with the Season of the Risen back in February of this year.
With all that being said, here is how you can get your hands on the Mindbender’s Ambition in Destiny 2.
How To Get Mindbender’s Ambition in Destiny 2
Just like before, the Mindbender’s Ambition only drops from Nightfall strikes.
But unlike its previous source, the reissued version does not have a specific Nightfall strike where it will only drop.
Instead, the revered shotgun has a chance of dropping from any Nightfall strike completions whenever it is the rotating weapon reward.
The Nightfall weapon changes every Tuesday, so keep an eye out for whatever weapon is on the rotation for the particular week.
Keep in mind that the harder the difficulty you choose the better chances you’d receive of obtaining the weapon.
The best option is to run the Legend and Master variants of the strikes.
That is basically it. Just make sure that the gun is in rotation by keeping check of the six weapons included in the Nightfall pools and run Nightfall strikes as much as you can with a high difficulty variant until you receive Mindbender’s Ambition.
Believe us, the grind will be worth it considering that the reissued Mindbender’s Ambition comes with a new suite of perks, making it better than ever before.
While the old iteration only has four possible rolls for each perk slot, the new version comes with six. And that’s just one improvement of many.
Good luck out there and may the odds ever be in your favor!
