Weapons and Rolls

The Epicurean fusion rifle Destiny 2 featured

The Epicurean

This returning Fusion Rifle from The Menagerie used to be a fan favorite. But we’ll see how it performs these days; the competition has never been higher in the Fusion Rifles department…

PVP God roll:

  • Perk 1: Snapshot Sights (also good: Quickdraw)
  • Perk 2: Rangefinder

How to get it: The Epicurean can drop from either the first or final encounter of the dungeon.

New Purpose pulse rifle Destiny 2 featured

New Purpose

PVE and PVP logo Destiny 2 Excels in PVE and PVP

New Purpose has the potential to become the best Stasis Pulse Rifle in the game, mainly because it can roll with the top-tier (and infamous) Desperado perk, but we’ll need to get our hands on a few god-rolls first.

PVP & PVE God roll:

  • Perk 1: Perpetual Motion
  • Perk 2: Desperado

How to get it: New Purpose can only drop from the final encounter of the dungeon.

Fixed Odds

Fixed Odds is another returning weapon from The Menagerie, but unlike The Epicurean, it comes back when the timing is just perfect: Machine guns just received a massive PvE buff. Plus it can roll with two of the best new perks this season: Incandescent (perfect for Solar 3.0 builds) and Killing Tally.

PVE God roll:

  • Perk 1: Feeding Frenzy
  • Perk 2: Incandescent (also good: Killing Tally)

How to get it: Fixed Odds can drop only from the final encounter of the dungeon.

Lingering Dread grenade launcher Destiny 2 featured

Lingering Dread

Lingering Dread is a one-of-a-kind weapon: This is the first Stasis special ammo grenade launcher ever. It does have strong competition in the Kinetic slot (Ignition Code comes to mind) but it will unlock Stasis synergies that no other Special ammo grenade launcher can.

PVE God roll:

  • Perk 1: Auto-Loading Holster
  • Perk 2: Chill Clip (also good: Vorpal Weapon)

How to get it: Lingering Dread can drop from either the first or final encounter of the dungeon.

Unforgiven SMG Destiny 2 featured

Unforgiven

Unforgiven is not “just another” Void SMG. It features excellent base stats and interesting perk combinations that can help it excel in PVE. A roll with Demolitionist and Golden Tricorn will do wonders with Void builds. But will it rise to the top of the Meta? Only time will tell…

PVE God roll:

  • Perk 1: Demolitionist (also good: Feeding Frenzy)
  • Perk 2: Golden Tricorn (also good: Adrenaline Junkie or Rampage)

How to get it: Unforgiven can drop from either the second or final encounter of the dungeon.

Stormchaser linear fusion rifle Destiny 2 featured

Stormchaser

This Linear Fusion Rifle features a brand-new archetype never seen before: A three-burst archetype. Early tests show it has insane DPS, potentially the highest in the game so far. As Saltagreppo, a World’s First PVE player puts it:

The Dungeon Linear is literally and by far the best weapon in the game. It’s a new burst archetype and the DPS is absurd.

PVE God roll:

  • Perk 1: Clown Cartridge (also good: Rapid-Hit)
  • Perk 2: Firing Line (also good: Vorpal Weapon)

How to get it: Stormchaser can drop from either the second or final encounter of the dungeon.

Duality’s Dungeon Exotic

As every other (modern) dungeon in Destiny 2 does, Duality features an exclusive Exotic weapon, in this case, the Heartshadow Exotic sword. This Dungeon Exotic drops from the Final encounter after completing the Dungeon.

Heartshadow Sword Destiny 2 featured

Heartshadow

Exotic Perk: “Heavy attacks made with full Sword energy turn you invisible and fire exploding Void projectiles. Remaining invisible grants this weapon increased damage. Hitting a target with this weapon’s projectiles while invisible weakens them.”

How to get it: Heatshadow only drops from Duality’s final boss. Be aware that completing specific triumphs will increase your odds.

Duality Dungeon Armor

As with every other dungeon in Destiny 2, Duality also offers one set of armor for each class:

Deep Explorer sets:

  • Deep Explorer Helmet
  • Deep Explorer Chest
  • Deep Explorer Arms
  • Deep Explorer Legs
  • Deep Explorer Class item

At first glance, these sets don’t look anything as exciting as those found in the Prophecy or Grasp of Avarice dungeons, but many are liking these new sets a lot.

More Destiny 2 loot tables:

Master Duality Loot

Just like the Grasp of Avarice dungeon, Duality also features a Master version. And just like Grasp, it also offers Artifice armor.

In a nutshell, Artifice armor is unique because it offers a bonus Mod slot. This may not sound like much, but if you’re into endgame content, these can make a huge difference. We cover Destiny 2’s Artifice armor in detail here.

Duality Exotic items

Finally, the Duality dungeon also features one exclusive item: The Mandate of Strength Exotic Ship:

Is the Duality dungeon farmable?

Whenever Duality is the featured dungeon of the week, it can be farmed for unlimited loot. All you’ll need is a committed Fireteam and a couple of hours ahead of you.

This is how you can farm the Duality dungeon:

  1. Go through the dungeon on your first character until you reach the encounter you want to farm.
  2. Start the encounter and wipe (i.e., die without beating it).
  3. Ask your Fireteam to wait. Change characters and log into a character that hasn’t run the dungeon that week.
  4. On that second character, join again your Fireteam.
  5. Wipe again. Now your second character has the proper checkpoint.

And that’s it. You can now farm that encounter ad nauseam until reset! To continue farming, you need to:

  1. Launch the dungeon using your second character (the one that is holding the checkpoint).
  2. Change characters and rejoin your Fireteam on your first character.
  3. Complete the encounter for loot.
  4. Exit the dungeon, switch characters again, and repeat Step 1.

Duality trophies

Finally, for the completionists out there, these are all of the Duality trophies:

Before you leave…

Are you looking forward to farming more top-tier loot from Destiny 2’s endgame activities? Next week, you’ll be able to farm Spire of the Watcher loot (the next featured Dungeon in the rotation).
