Destiny 2 Edge Transit: God Rolls and How to get it

by | Apr 16, 2024

If Guardians were asked what weapons they’d like to have seen return with Into the Light, many would have similar answers (The Recluse, The Mountaintop, and Hammerhead, to name a few). But one weapon seems to have snuck in with nothing going for it beyond a meme that lasted throughout Forsaken: Edge Transit.

Today, we’ll take a deep dive into everything this grenade launcher has to offer, including its god rolls and general potency in today’s competitive meta.


How good is Edge Transit

While you’re unlikely to see Edge Transit used during Season of the Wish, many speculate that the weapon will be the king of DPS upon the launch of The Final Shape.

With the same perk pool that made Cataphract GL3 so popular upon its release, Edge Transit offers the best heavy grenade launcher experience possible while being extremely easy to obtain.

The only place where Edge Transit lacks is PvP, although that’s to be expected. While it doesn’t do anything wrong necessarily, there’s no reason to farm an Edge Transit over anything else if you’re a Crucible player.

Tier Rank & “Roles”:  Edge Transit is S-Tier in PvE (Boss Damage) and B-Tier in PvP.

S-tier for PvE B-tier for PvP

Edge Transit PvE god roll

PvE Roll: Boss Damage
Launcher Barrel Quick Launch
Magazine Spike Grenades
Perk 1 Envious Assassin (also good: Cascade Point)
Perk 2 Bait and Switch
Masterwork Velocity or Handling

For PvE, we’ll begin with Quick Launch, Spike Grenades, and either a velocity or handling masterwork.

From there, any veteran player knows the exact perk combo we’re going to suggest: Envious Assassin and Bait and Switch. This combination made Cataphract GL3 so popular a couple of months ago and continues to be the dominant choice for heavy grenade launchers in the current meta.

The only swap we’d ever recommend making is Cascade Point instead of Envious Assassin, solely for high burst damage (or simply for fun) if that’s something you’re interested in. However, nine times out of ten, Envious Assassin is the dominant pick regardless.

Recommended Loadout: The Mountaintop, Sunshot, Edge Transit.

Edge Transit PvP god roll

  • Launcher Barrel: Volatile Launch
  • Magazine: High-Velocity Rounds
  • Perk 1: Impulse Amplifier
  • Perk 2: Explosive Light
  • Masterwork: Velocity
PvP Roll: All-Around
Launcher Barrel Volatile Launch
Magazine High-Velocity Rounds
Perk 1 Impulse Amplifier
Perk 2 Explosive Light
Masterwork Velocity

Edge Transit simply isn’t as powerful in The Crucible, but that doesn’t stop it from excelling with the right combination of perks. Volatile Launch, High-Velocity Rounds, and a velocity masterwork allow for a nice split between velocity and blast radius, two vital stats in PvP.

Impulse Amplifier is an easy pick in column one, making the weapon significantly easier to use against moving Guardians. As for your final perk, Explosive Light is our pick, although solely for the additional blast radius it offers. Realistically, this final perk doesn’t make all that big of a difference either way, so we recommend experimenting to find what works for you.

How to get Edge Transit

Edge Transit is one of twelve legendary weapons that were reissued with the free-to-play Into the Light release on April 9, 2024. These weapons are farmable via Onslaught, but you can increase Edge Transit’s drop chance by 50% by attuning to the weapon in the Hall of Champions (available by completing the weapon’s respective quest from Arcite).

    envious + bait n swtich is bait.

    cascade + bait n switch is the only reason this gl is good. if you aren’t using that there’s no difference it using it or a regnant / cataphract
