Prior to the release of Deathmatch, rogue gloves could be found in the Crucible. They were found broken and could be repaired using trophy bones. When repaired, they were degradable hybrid gloves, providing only armour. With the release of Deathmatch, all existing rogue gloves were converted into the new corrupt rogue gloves and purchasing of the next tier was unlocked.
