How to get Revision Zero this Season

Revision Zero is obtainable from the Operation: Seraph Shield exotic mission on any difficulty level. This mission is a part of the Exotic Mission Rotator, meaning you can only farm Operation: Seraph Shield and Revision Zero every three weeks.

Acquiring Revision Zero does require ownership of either the Witch Queen or Season of the Seraph.

Revision Zero is now craftable

In case you missed the Revision Zero the first time around, the weapon is now back, and it can easily be obtained by simply completing Operation: Seraph Shield. Better yet, Revision Zero is now craftable. According to Bungie:

  • First completion of the mission on Normal or Legendary difficulty will award the Exotic Deepsight weapon associated with the mission. Extracting or dismantling this Deepsight weapon will grant the pattern.
  • Each completion of the Normal or Legendary version of the Exotic mission will award an intrinsic upgrade that can be used when crafting the Exotic weapon.

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. It also received increased PvE damage of its Hunter’s Trace rounds by 25% and its Häkke Heavy Burst rounds by 75%.

The combination of these buffs makes 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 for PvE, or want to compete at range in PvP, this weapon is for you.

Revision Zero God rolls for PvE

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

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.

Revision Zero God rolls for 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

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.

Revision Zero catalysts: Where to find them?

As with the other exotics available through the Exotic Mission Rotator, Revision Zero’s Exotic catalyst comes from the Legendary version of Operation: Seraph Shield:

  • Each completion of the Legendary version of the Exotic mission will award a Catalyst upgrade for the crafted Exotic weapon.

These are the four distinct catalysts available for 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.
