Type Engram
Rarity Legendary
Description An engram with complex markers.

Contains a random Legendary Vanguard weapon or armor piece.
Vendor Commander Zavala

Vanguard Gear is a variant of the Legendary Engram.


1 engram is given as a reward for every rank increased with Commander Zavala. Rank can be increased by completing Vanguard activities. Engrams can be claimed from Commander Zavala's vendor screen.

This engram's contents can also drop when completing a strike or Vanguard activity.


Vanguard Gear engrams decrypt into a single weapon or armor item immediately after being claimed from Commander Zavala. They can drop the following items, as of the Season of the Seraph.


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

The seasonal Vanguard playlist weapon is Prolonged engagement icon1.jpg Prolonged Engagement, a Submachine Gun. This weapon can only be obtained as a drop from completing Vanguard activities. It will be added to this engram in the next Season.
