Destiny 2 Acasia’s Dejection: God Rolls and How to get it

by | Mar 12, 2023

Acasia’s Dejection is a Solar Trace rifle from the Root of Nightmares raid. Getting this weapon can save you hours of farming Dares of Eternity looking for a Retraced Path, as Acasia can come with some competitive perks and is also Solar. And considering the potential Trace Rifles have, Acasia is not one to miss.

Today we cover how to get it and tell you what the top god rolls you should be looking for.

How to get Acasia’s Dejection in Season 20

Acasia’s Dejection drops from the Root of Nightmares raid, from either the Scission or Macrocosm encounters. Both Scission and Macrocosm, the second and third encounters, drop seven different items, so you’ll need to get quite lucky. However, looting the chest at the end of the raid will provide a Deepsighted weapon of your choice once a week, should you have 20 Spoils of Conquest to spare.

Alternatively, you can do the Deepsight chest puzzle found within the raid to get a random Deepsighted weapon drop at the end of the raid. This guide by Skarrow9 explains how.

How good is Acasia’s Dejection today’s Meta?

Clearly, Acasia’s Dejection is the solution for players that are not interested in farming for a Retraced Path. Both weapons fill the same role and can do the same things. There is nothing that makes Acasia’s better than Retraced Path, it is simply of the same quality weapon.

Overall, Trace Rifles are a solid pick in the meta right now due to their convenience and ease of use in double Special ammo loadouts. Simply put, Acasia’s Dejection is a good option, but it isn’t breaking new ground when it comes to Trace Rifles or weapons as a whole. A Tier – Strong.

Best Acasia’s Dejection Rolls for PvE and PvP

Once you have Acasia’s Dejection crafted, you’ll want to know what the best perks are so that you can get to leveling your newly crafted Trace Rifle up.

Acasia’s Dejection God Roll

Acasia’s Dejection PvP god roll

For PvP, there aren’t too many great picks. Perpetual Motion and High-Impact Reserves will typically be the best option, though, as you will have High Impact Reserves active quite often in PvP.

  • Barrel: Fluted Barrel
  • Battery: Enhanced Battery
  • Perk 1: Perpetual Motion
  • Perk 2: High-Impact Reserves

Acasia’s Dejection PvE god roll

For PvE, the standard roll will be Rewind Rounds and Incandescent. However, you can opt for Reconstruction and Frenzy instead. You don’t have to worry about the Barrel and Battery too much. However, Fluted Barrel and Enhanced Battery would be the best if you wanted to optimize.

  • Barrel: Fluted Barrel
  • Battery: Enhanced Battery
  • Perk 1: Rewind Rounds (also good: Reconstruction)
  • Perk 2: Incandescent (also good: Frenzy)
