Our Clan

The “Gambito Crime Family [MOTE]” is a Destiny 2 cross-platform (mainly PC and Xbox) clan whose favorite pastime activity is stomping in Gambit and Gambit Prime (we’ll miss you Prime).

We stream game play from various members on Twitch and post on YouTube.

Member status and team openings are for Reckoners, Dredgens and Top 500 Elo players non-assholes (the top 500 thing will happen when you play with us), and everyone has to meet the Requirements and Expectations below. A cooperative, high level of team play is expected and win trading in a competitive playlist where there’s in-game benefits (title/loot) is not allowed [RULE 2] (i.e. a “gambit” clan will still ban you for cheesing Unbroken or Flawless).

We play to win in every aspect of the game, and the thing that unifies us as a family is the complete and utter lack and tolerance of the scrub mentality while still being humble, supportive and cooperative in our teams. [To paraphrase Sirlin], if you are a player who blames other players for violating rules in your head even though it doesn’t violate any actual games rules and you do not take personal responsibility for your gaming, then this is not the place for you.

Our most competitive teams use builds that can require previous and current seasonal mods (members tend to have a complete set of Combat Style armor mods), seasonal exotics, raid exotics and competitive weapons from trials and crucible. It is very normal to clan members to have masterworked exotics in every element on multiple characters. You will be asked to run specific load-outs to rotate into those matches.

Requirements and Expectations:

  1. Proper mindset and reputation: we will look at everything. You will not be accepted into the clan if you have a VAC ban (for any reason and over any time) on your steam profile, and if you have anything unseemly on your profile and game-associated social media in any part.
  2. You will know you’re ready when: Everyone should comfortable completing a solo, flawless, sub-6 minute run of a private gambit match including killing the primeval and do it without a significant time difference from a full stack. Emerald Coast with Fallen should be used for this video. Here are examples: Beyond Light Killector, Season of Chosen Killector, Season of the Lost Killector (latest for pacing expectations).
  3. Pre-screen #1: For “reaping mains” you should be able to solo flawless a full-length private match (you simply kill combatants, when the primeval starts to spawn at the end of the time, then leave to orbit to see the kill tracker) and get 308+ combatant kills on Deep 6 with Hive, 400+ combatant kills on Emerald Coast with Hive or 400+ combatant kills on New Arcadia with Vex. Seasonal outlier builds will need 340+ kills on Deep 6 with Hive, and 460+ on both Emerald Coast with Hive and New Arcadia with Vex. These are the only three map and combatant combinations that are accepted in the pre-screen video. You must also be consistent in your abilities, movement and flow so we ask that you do not use artifact (aka seasonal) mods that are in the 4th or 5th columns. Please show all weapons and armor in the first part of your video.
    For the time being, Reaper applications are closed.
  4. Pre-screen #2: For “invading mains”, a video of three (3) matches in live games will be required. These games can be done solo or with teammates. Overuse of power ammo in these videos will affect the verdict. Invader mains that advance to the selection process are particularly vetted for temperament, communication styles, and timing. It is possible to have your application declined despite a high level of in-game skill.
  5. Selection Process: everyone must play in normal game play with a 3-stack from a select group of members and may be required to scrim with them against a clan 4-stack.
  6. NOTE: You can also submit a video of your “Platinum Dredgen” Triumphs, of which, there are two. [1] Win a match against a blatant cheater (e.g. fully auto Xeno, unlimited golden guns), and [2] Win against DDOS’ers where at least 2 (ideally 3) of your teammates were knocked out and you had to duo/solo win a game.

Clan members also have access to play guides, team builds, map flows, invader secrets and how to have a two minute game in a clan-only section of our discord.

Process for joining the clan:

  1. Join our discord.
  2. This is our Bungie clan page.

  5. Send Wardcliffe#5996 (discord) or Rathos#1337 (recruiting backup) your braytech.org page (an example)
  6. You will submit two videos. The first is the solo flawless match where you bank motes and kill the primeval (#2 above in Requirements and Expectations ). The second video is either a reaping video (#3 above in Requirements and Expectations ) or an invading video (#4 above in Requirements and Expectations ).
  7. Send Wardcliffe#5996 (discord) or Rathos#1337 (recruiting backup) your Bungie Profile page (an example) and let him know your time zone.
  8. You’ll then go through a vetting process with The Commission. We do scheduled game play with prospects to ensure all time zone coverage. You can expect the process to take 3-5 weeks as we truly try to get to know you can prospect.
