Destiny 2 Commemoration: God Rolls and How to get it

by | Feb 27, 2024

Commemoration is a Legendary machine gun from the Deep Stone Crypt raid. This Void Machine Gun has recently seen a resurgence thanks to the Machine Gun buffs brought by Season 20. It currently comes in as the number 3 most popular Machine Gun in Season of Defiance, so you’ll definitely want to get your hands on it.

Today, we’ll share the best ways to obtain multiple rolls of the weapon and the best perks you want to hunt down.


How to get Commemoration

Commemoration is one of several weapons that drop from the Deep Stone Crypt raid, obtained exclusively from defeating Taniks The Abomination in the final encounter of the raid.

If you are having trouble securing your first drop from Taniks, you can also spend 60 Spoils of Conquest at the loot cache at the end of the raid for an additional chance to the weapon. In addition, Commemoration can be crafted too, but that will require you to find 5 Deepsight (red border) versions of the weapon. You can find the full Deep Stone Crypt loot table here.

How good is Commemoration today

Machine Guns received some love this season, seeing a 10% damage increase and a boost to reserve ammo. That increase in damage and reserves pairs nicely with some of Commemoration’s top perks, specifically Reconstruction, Killing Tally, Rampage, and Dragonfly.

There is a reason that Commemoration is the third most popular Machine Gun and fourth most popular weapon overall in the current PvE meta, and that is the perk combinations centered around Reconstruction. Pairing Reconstruction in the third column with Killing Tally, Rampage, or Dragonfly can be effective for either dealing boss damage or mob clearing.

Commemoration is S-tier for PvE, especially for endgame content, and A-tier for PvE.

Commemoration PvE god roll

  • Barrel: Arrowhead Break
  • Magazine: Accurized Rounds or Extended Mag
  • Perk 1: Reconstruction
  • Perk 2: Killing Tally (also good: Rampage)
  • Masterwork: Reload

With Commemoration and most Machine Guns, we want to maximize potential DPS and mob clearing. With this weapon type comes high recoil, and for that reason, we want to choose Arrowhead Brake as our barrel type. For the magazine, you can go with Tactical Mag or Extended Mag to improve your reload speed.

For our first perk, we want only one thing – Reconstruction. This immensely increases the number of rounds we have in our magazine and allows us to do damage or clear mobs for what feels like forever without the need to reload. This is where Commemoration becomes a PvE powerhouse.

Pair Reconstruction with Killing Tally for the ultimate god roll. A perfect pairing, without the need to frequently reload, Reconstruction allows you to rack up kills so Killing Tally can easily boost your damage output with the weapon.

Commemoration PvP god roll

  • Barrel: Smallbore
  • Magazine: Projection Fuse or Particle Repeater
  • Perk 1: Surplus or Dynamic Sway Reduction
  • Perk 2: Under Pressure or Eye of the Storm
  • Masterwork: Range or Handling

Heavy ammo is rare in the Crucible, but it can change the tide of a match. Since we will be firing a partially filled magazine with no need to reload, range-enhancing barrels such as Smallbore, Corkscrew Rifling, or Full Bore are preferred. Accurized Rounds is the ideal magazine type to stretch that range even further.

In the third column, Surplus and Dynamic Sway Reduction are two safe bets for a general stats boost. In the final column, we want to go with Under Pressure as the perk’s accuracy bonus will be systematically triggered due to our partially filled magazine.
