So, after noticing some things in the new season, I've come to an interesting idea regarding the purpose of Gambit and how it'll help in the long run of Destiny 2. Call this a pseudo part 2 to my Hive theory if you choose
After watching the first invitation cutscene, part of it gave me a wild idea. That idea? The Drifter is trying to amass a Taken army to fight alongside us, primarily to combat Savathûn and her growing army. But why? In order to understand, here's a synopsis of my previous theory: The Xol we've faced in this game thus far is a fake created by Riven, whilst the real Xol is now Taken and feeding off our usage of the Whisper of the Worm exotic sniper rifle, as Nokris resurrects the faker again and again to keep us occupied, as a way for him to grow in power, feeding off of the constant death similar to Savvy's time loop, and that Savathûn, Quria, Nokris, and the real Xol will be our primary enemy in Year 3. Now back to Drifter. As you may have guessed, I believe he may have realized this whole thing is happening, and using Gambit as what I call a S.L.S., A.K.A. a Sword Logic Siphon. Gambit is meant to be an artificial version of what our Hive, Taken, and Vex friends are up to, us constantly killing enemies, including old Ascendant Taken in the form of Primevals, and using the Sword Logic to help us gain power so we can battle the enemy we've longed to fight against ever since the game's release. Now back to what I said about a Taken army. Sounds crazy, right? But it makes sense. In the first Invitation of the Nine cutscene, we see Drifter summoning a Taken Captain with a single Mote of Dark, and receiving the Haul when he's discovered by the Emissary. If a single mote's good enough to conjure a Captain, who knows what the thousands, if not millions, of motes we've banked over the half-year could do. Heck the Taken in the Reckoning might be coming from these motes
But, there's something else, that bonus I mentioned. Y'know how the Drifter speaks of a second Collapse? Well I personally believe that either D2Y3 or D3BG (Base game) is when we see that Collapse. I believe that A: The upcoming Taken War II will cause it, hence the Drifter's potential Taken army, or B: Some new threat will cause a second Collapse so soon after our second Golden Age, and what the Taken army might foreshadow: Our enemies will ally with us Lightbearers to help us out. Those enemies being the Fallen and Cabal. Why? With the Fallen, Mithrax has created his House of Light, and Variks is working to lead the Fallen as a second Kell of Kells. As for the Cabal, we have Emperor Calus. He only sends his soldiers to fight us because he wants to see our power grow and has no intent to be our enemy, he's only testing us. The main story might involve a double civil war with our allies: Fallen versus Fallen, and Cabal versus Cabal, with the enemy Fallen and Cabal allying together to launch another attack on the Last City. Maybe a House of War or something like that?
Until then, this is all I have to say. Will there be more theories? Ah who knows? We just have to see where things go before I start going overboard with this stuff that could end up becoming nonsense down the line. Until then, fight the good fight everyone.
