These will take up the same lot in your inventory as other Engrams. You can pick these up from any event, including Crucible matches and Strike missions. Once have them, you can use them to select your preferred rewards.
How to get the Umbral Decoder and Prismatic Recaster
You can’t open Umbral Engrams by bringing them to the Cryptarch or Eververse. Instead, you’ll need to make use of a tool known as the Umbral Decoder along with the Prismatic Recaster.
Here’s how you can get both of these:
- Head to Titan
- Speak with the Drifter (You may need to defeat the boss in the Gambit-style events first)
- Complete a Strike, Crucible or Gambit match to acquire the Prismatic Recaster
- Open up the Prismatic Recaster and upgrade it with Twisted Energy
- This grant you an Umbral Engram along with an Umbral Decoder
How to Focus your Umbral Engrams
The more you level up the Prismatic Recaster, the greater the reduction will be in the cost of Umbral Engrams. You can purchase more Umbral Engrams with Altered Element that you earn by completing Bounties from the Prismatic Recaster.
Alternatively, you can get more by purchasing a Trade Override with legendary shards. Once that’s done, you can then Focus your Engram to select what gear you want to receive. This will ensure that you get your preferred rewards more often
There are three tiers of Umbral Focusing:
- Tier 1: Grants you access to standard weapons and armor
- Tier 2: Gives you more Legendary weapons
- Tier 3: Lets you unlock armor pieces that focus on mobility and strength
That covers everything you need to know about Umbral Emblems in Destiny 2. You can use them to get yourself much more powerful gear and weapons than you would normally acquire.

The Trials of Osiris is an end-game Crucible event that resets its rewards and map every Friday at 9 AM PST / 1 PM EST / 6 PM GMT. The more reputation you can earn in Bungie’s Trials of Osiris, the better quality of rewards you will receive in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Anniversary Event hints at Halo crossover
Destiny 2 players have spotted some Halo weapons in the upcoming 30th Anniversary event, and they believe it could be teasing a crossover.
The Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack will arrive in Destiny 2 soon, and the teasers appear to show Guardian’s rocking some very familiar Halo weapons. This has sparked rumors that a Halo crossover will be arriving in Destiny 2 soon.
Bungie kickstarted the legendary Halo franchise back in 2001 but since parting ways with Microsoft, has now moved on to developing and supporting Destiny. Now, Halo is in the hands of 343 Industries.
Bungie will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a special Destiny 2 event that brings over content and cosmetics from its previous games. Although it’s Bungie’s most famous franchise, there was no confirmation that any Halo content would arrive.
However, on the 30th Anniversary Pack’s Steam page, eagle-eyed players believe they have spotted Halo weapons that tease a crossover.
The Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack launches on December 7 and brings a new Dungeon, as well as the Gjallarhorn Exotic Rocket Launcher, and weapons and armor from its previous games – Myth and Marathon.
Although Halo put Bungie on the map, the end of its Microsoft partnership has meant that Destiny and Halo have never had a crossover. However, it appears that could change.
Players have spotted weapons that look extremely similar to Halo’s classic Battle Rifle and Focus Rifle (or Covenant Carbine) in an image from Destiny 2’s ‘Dares of Eternity’ activity.
Some also believed that they spotted a Needler in the same image, but it’s actually a new armor set where the shoulder piece has some very familiar purple needles poking out of it.
However, there’s no guarantee that this will be an official crossover. It’s likely that Bungie has crafted new weapons that are inspired by Halo’s but in such a way that it doesn’t directly bring them over.
While an official crossover is possible, we’ll need to wait until the 30th Anniversary event releases to know just how much Halo will arrive in Destiny 2.
