In Destiny 2: Forsaken, players can’t earn Prime Engrams until they reach Level 50. As such, the first step in getting Prime Engrams is increasing your Guardian to Level 50. There are plenty of ways to level up in Destiny 2: Forsaken. As long as an activity yields EXP, you’ll be able to use it towards your Level progress.

Completing the Forsaken story campaign, investigating new Lost Sectors, and defeating high-level enemies can all help inch you closer to Level 50. Upon reaching Level 50, you’ll receive your first Prime Engram from the Cryptarch in the Tower. Additionally, you’ll receive a Prime Attunement buff which grants you a chance of earning Prime Engram drops from enemies and from Crucible matches.

The Prime Attunement buff will eventually disappear, so while it’s active it’s important to hop into Destiny 2: Forsaken every day and run through tasks including Crucible matches, Wanted Bounties, and Heroic Public Events. In doing so, you should be able to net yourself a decent inventory of Prime Engrams.

Using these Prime Engrams, you’ll be able to further increase your Level and improve your Guardian in Destiny 2: Forsaken. Have you managed to reach Level 50 yet? Do you prefer earning Prime Engrams from Crucible matches, or by killing enemies in the world of Destiny 2: Forsaken? Let us know down in the comments below!
