How to get Revision Zero this Season

Revision Zero is currently unavailable but is expected to return in Season 22. Bungie already announced its plans to introduce a new rotating Playlist featuring Exotic missions from the past, including Operation Seraph Shield and Presage.

Revision Zero was rewarded for running the Operation Seraph Shierl quest and completing The Hidden Shape quest.

Revision Zero drop rate: Operation Seraph Shield

Unlike most other Exotics, Revision Zero was a guaranteed quest reward. The main feature of this weapon was the fact it was craftable, and its many catalysts were rewarded when completing Operation Seraph Shield throughout Season 19.

It is currently unconfirmed if the gun will be farmable or a guaranteed drop when Operation Seraph Shield returns.

How good is this Revision Zero this season?

Revision Zero features unique Exotic perks that set it apart:

  • Hunter’s Trace: This weapon fires special shield-piercing ammunition. Precision hits grant targeting data. Swapping to the alternate scope loads high-damage rounds based on the amount of targeting data. Strong against Barrier Champions.
  • Moving Target: Increased movement speed and target acquisition when moving while aiming down sights.

As a craftable weapon, Revision Zero can be easily built to suit either PvE or PvP needs. Being craftable also grants it the ability to change and better adapt to the ever-changing meta in Destiny 2.

Following Destiny update 7.0.5, Revision Zero received a strong buff due to the 20% damage increase to Pulse Rifles and increased PvE damage of the Hunter’s Trace rounds by 25%, and Increased PvE damage of the Häkke Heavy Burst rounds by 75%.

The combination of these buffs make Revision Zero a strong competitor for endgame content such as Grandmaster Nightfalls and even PvP. If you prefer a hard-hitting Pulse Rifle over, say, Wishender in PvE, or want to compete at range in PVP, this weapon is for you.

Revision Zero God rolls for PvP

For PvP, recoil control is key on this hard-hitting Pulse Rifle. Arrowhead Break adds its full +30 to the Recoil control helping keep its strong bursts central when engaged. Pairing this with Ricochet Round’s bonus to Stability and Range helps Revision Zero keep its shots consistently on target.

As Revision Zero is craftable, there is room for maneuvering. Perpetual Motion is a solid choice because of its benefits when engaged and strafing. Round this off with Fitted Stock which improves Stability and Recoil. Such a roll will give you the most controllable version of Revision Zero when engaged in PvP.

  • Barrel: Arrowhead Break
  • Magazine: Ricochet Rounds
  • Perk 1: Perpetual Motion (also good: Elemental Capacitor, when using a Void or Stasis subclass)
  • Stock: Fitted Stock
  • Mode: Hakke Light Burst Fire

Revision Zero God rolls for PvE

Revision Zero has the intrinsic capability to stun Anti-barrier Champion units, making it a strong contender for endgame activities where Champions abound. Focusing on Stability and Recoil control will provide the most benefits in such endgame situations. Arrowhead Break and Ricochet Rounds will definitely help you land your shots more consistently.

Vorpal Weapon adds a 20 percent damage increase to mini-bosses and bosses, including Champions. Round this PvE roll off with Fitted Stock and you get a laser beam of an Exotic.

  • Barrel: Arrowhead Break
  • Magazine: Ricochet Rounds
  • Perk 1: Vorpal Weapon
  • Stock: Fitted Stock
  • Mode: Hakke Light Burst Fire

Revision Zero catalysts: Where to find them?

Revision Zero actually features multiple Catalysts. To acquire them, you had to clear Operation Seraph Shield on several weeks after during Season 19. Like the gun itself, it is yet unclear how Bungie will re-incorporate these catalysts when Operation Seraph Shield returns in Season 22.

These are the four distinct catalysts available to Revision Zero:

  • Frenzy Refit (Feeding Frenzy): Each rapid kill with this weapon progressively increases reload speed for a short time
  • Pressurized Refit (Under Pressure): Improved stability and accuracy as your magazine gets lower
  • Outlaw Refit (Outlaw): Precision kills greatly decrease reload time
  • 4-Timer Refit (Fourth Time’s the Charm): Rapidly landing precision hits will return two rounds to the magazine

How to unlock the catalyst?

To unlock the catalyst as efficiently as possible, any place with many easy-to-kill enemies can be a good spot. The Shuro Chi Wall encounter from the Last With raid is a particularly popular spot to farm catalysts.
