The Crucible Faction rewards the player for competing in The Crucible. Each match will reward the player one Crucible Token upon completion; handing these in to Lord Shaxx in The Tower is currently the only way to increase standing with this faction. Each rank-up will award the player a Crucible Engram that contains Crucible-themed equipment and shaders.

Vendor Lord Shaxx

Crucible Engram (formerly known as Crucible Gear) is a Legendary Engram.


Players get a Crucible Engram as a reward for each rank increase with Lord Shaxx. Rank can be increased by completing any Crucible playlist activities, including Iron Banner and Trials of Osiris.

This engram's quantity can be viewed using the Engram Tracker icon.jpg Engram Tracker.


Claiming a Crucible Engram from Lord Shaxx's vendor screen will immediately decrypt it into a Crucible weapon or armor item from the current loot pool. They do not need to be taken to Master Rahool to decrypt them.

Players can focus Crucible Engrams into specific weapons and armor items from the current loot pool by purchasing those items through Lord Shaxx's vendor screen. The Focused Decoding menu contains weapons and armor from the current loot pool, while Legacy Gear contains older armor sets that are no longer in rotation. The engrams are automatically consumed when the player purchases an item.


For Focused Decoding and Legacy Gear options, see Lord Shaxx.

Crucible Engrams can drop the following items, as of the Season of the Deep. This engram's contents can also drop when completing a match in a Crucible playlist, excluding Iron Banner and Trials of Osiris.


Weapons will drop with one trait in the third and fourth perk columns. Resetting rank with Lord Shaxx will allow weapons to drop with additional traits in these columns. More resets will allow weapons to drop with more traits, up to 4 resets.[1] Engrams do not need to be claimed or focused before resetting rank, so it is possible to save them for later in order for their rewards to have a chance drop with additional traits.

The seasonal Crucible playlist weapon is Randy's throwing knife icon1.jpg Randy's Throwing Knife, a Scout Rifle. This weapon can only be obtained as a drop from completing Crucible matches, including Iron Banner matches. It will be added to this engram in the next Season.
