Destiny 2 Axial Lacuna: God Rolls & How to get it

by | Jun 6, 2024

Axial Lacuna is a new precision frame fusion rifle released with The Final Shape. It can be found at the new Pale Heart destination.


How good is Axial Lacuna

Axial Lacuna has a nice array of perks available to it, and with fusion rifles being in a generally good place right now, especially for backup damage and super regeneration, it could be a very viable option.

Axial Lacuna PvE god rolls

PvE Roll: All-Around
Barrel Fluted Barrel
Battery Ionized Battery
Perk 1 Reconstruction
Perk 2 Controlled Burst (also good: Incandescent)
Masterwork Charge Time

We recommend Fluted Barrel as this weapon doesn’t have the best of Handling stats, and also the increase in Stability means that the projectiles will fire with a tighter spread, making Controlled Burst more effective.

Ionized Battery is recommended as when paired with the Backup Mag weapon mod, and Reconstruction, the magazine is increased to 16 shots in the magazine.

Reconstruction is always a very nice perk to have on a backup weapon as it removes the need to reload completely, so it is always ready for those close call situations.

Controlled Burst makes Axial Lacuna a very nice weapons for backup damage in situations where heavy ammo is tight, or to fit in well with damage swap rotations. Also the increased Charge Rate makes the frame slightly less punishing compared to a Rapid Fire.
Incandescent is also a viable option as it provides an option for strong add clear in situations where it is needed.

Axial Lacuna PvP god rolls

PvP Roll: All-Around
Barrel Corkscrew Rifling
Battery Particle Repeater
Perk 1 Firmly Planted (also good: Eye of the Storm)
Perk 2 Kickstart
Masterwork Stability

We recommend both Corkscrew Rifling and Particle Repeater due to the increase in Stability they provide, as Stability is a very important stat when it comes to fusion rifles in PvP.

While Eye of the Storm is viable option due to increase in weapon accuracy, we feel that Firmly Planted is the better option as it does not require losing health to activate, and it synergises very well with Kickstart.

Kickstart has always been a very strong option in PvP, especially for those with a more aggressive playstyle. As mentioned above, it synergises very well with Firmly Planted as sliding to activate Kickstart also provides the bonuses for crouching with Firmly Planted.

We opted for a Stability Masterwork over Range as a tighter projectile spread is always useful in PvP, and the Range Masterwork only provides an extra 0.5m of falloff distance.

Overall, Axial Lacuna seems a very strong option for the majority of situations, both PvE and PvP, with a very versatile perk pool.
