The mode is a combination of PvE and PvP, featuring two teams of four Guardians each. Players compete to kill enemies and then kill each other. Each team has an energy bank and compete to fill up that bank with motes of Darkness. Up to fifteen motes can be held at a time. When the bank is full (75 motes), a team will be able to summon a Primeval, a powerful Taken  and invade the other team. At 25 and 50 motes, a portal will open up which allows one player to invade the other team's area.A more intense mode of Gambit is known as Gambit Prime.
The Drifter is the Gambit vendor.
