How to get Horror’s Least in 2022

Another victim of weapon sunsetting, the Horror’s Least was off the table for nearly three years. But the wait is over, as it finally returned to us with some solid perks, especially for PvP, as a Nightfall-exclusive reward.

Nightfall Weapon rotation for 2022

There are 14 Nightfall-specific weapons in total, and as of Season of Plunder (S18), only 6 out of the 14 total weapons are currently on rotation, with only one dropping each week. This means you can only farm the Horror’s Least pulse rifle once every six weeks!

How good is the Horror’s Least today

As a Rapid-Fire pulse, Horror’s Least does come with a fairly lacking range stat. However, the Horror’s Least more than makes up for it thanks to its excellent performance. It does have some Arc competition in the way of Insidious, though, which is an excellent option. Personally, I would opt for Insidious inside of PvE, but Horror’s Least for PvP.

  • A Tier – Strong: Very strong weapon types, but not on the same level as S Tier Choices.

Best Horror’s Least Rolls for PvE and PvP

Once you’ve identified the right week to farm, you’ll want to run as many Nightfalls (and at the higher difficulty possible) as possible to increase your chances of finding a god roll. Among the several strong possible rolls out there, these are our favorites, the combinations we consider god rolls.

Horror's Least roll

A Horror’s Least roll, Destiny 2

Horror’s Least PvP god roll

In terms of rolls for PvP, you’ll want high Range and Stability, so the obvious choice is Smallbore. However, Corkscrew Rifling is good too. For your magazine, Accurised Rounds is the go-to in order to get that big boost to Range. Regarding perks, for slot one, you have plenty of options; however, Perpetual Motion and Heating Up are the stand out picks. Zen Moment is also good if you are on a controller. For slot 2, Kill Clip is the best pick by a mile, but Frenzy can somewhat work as an alternative in niche situations.

  • Barrel: Smallbore or Corkscrew Rifling
  • Magazine: Accurized Rounds
  • Perk 1: Perpetual Motion or Heating Up
  • Perk 2: Kill Clip

Horror’s Least PvE god roll

For PvE, you’ll want higher Range and Stability too, so again, Smallbore or Corkscrew Rifling and Accurized rounds are the best picks. Do bear in mind that barrels and magazines aren’t as necessary in PvE compared to PvP. For your perks, you’ll want Perpetual Motion and either Kill Clip, Frenzy, or Focused Fury.

  • Barrel: Smallbore or Corkscrew Rifling
  • Magazine: Accurised Rounds
  • Perk 1: Perpetual Motion
  • Perk 2: Kill Clip, Frenzy, or Focused Fury

Horror’s Least Adept

If you’re courageous enough to tackle Nightfalls on Grandmaster difficulty, you could earn an Adept version of the Horror’s Least. On top of serving as bragging rights, Adept variants of weapons have more perks per column, give even more stats when Masterworked, and can accept unique Adept mods.

Be aware that Grandmaster Nightfalls are only available during the second half of the season.
