How to get Hung Jury SR4 in Season 20

A returning weapon from Destiny 1, Hung Jury SR4 used to be a fan-favorite back then. And since it became available in Destiny 2, the Hung Jury SR4 quickly became a fan favorite once again.

Nightfall Weapon rotation this season

There are several Nightfall-exclusive weapons in total, but as of Season of Defiance (S20), only six are currently on rotation, with only one dropping each week. This means you can only farm the Hung Jury SR4 scout rifle once every six weeks!

How good is the Hung Jury SR4 today

The Hung Jury has always been an outlier within its archetype, as Precision frame Scouts aren’t considered particularly good. However, the perks that Hung Jury can roll are brilliant, putting it a cut above the rest.

It does have some competition for a spot in your arsenal, such as the Night Watch, Doom of Chelchis, and Tarnished Mettle; however, regardless of the type of content you tackle, you can’t go wrong with a good roll of a Hung Jury.

Because of all of this, the Hung Jury is an S Tier weapon. It’s truly a jack-of-all-trades that can do well in every part of the game.

  • S Tier – Best: Highest ranking weapons.

Best Hung Jury SR4 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.

Hung Jury SR4 PvP god roll

For PvP, you’ll want decent Handling and Stability; therefore, we recommend Fluted Barrel. For your magazine, you’ll want Flared Magwell or Tactical Mag. For your perks, we recommend Rapid Hit for slot one and Box Breathing, Adagio, or Explosive Payload for slot 2. Each of these perks brings something special to the table through increased damage, kill-chaining, or just high flinch.

  • Barrel: Fluted Barrel (also good: Corkscrew Rifling)
  • Magazine: Flared Magwell or Tactical Mag
  • Perk 1: Rapid Hit
  • Perk 2: Box Breathing or Explosive Payload

Hung Jury SR4 PvE god roll

For PvE, the stats don’t matter as much, but we would recommend you just stick with the same barrel and magazine picks as for PvP. For the main perks, in Slot one, we recommend Rapid Hit, and for Slot 2, Explosive Payload or Frenzy are the best picks. Slot one also does feature Shoot to Loot, which can be helpful in a pinch, but Rapid Hit is just too nice to pass up.

  • Barrel: Fluted Barrel (also good: Corkscrew Rifling)
    Magazine: Flared Magwell or Tactical Mag
  • Perk 1: Rapid Hit
  • Perk 2: Explosive Payload or Frenzy

Hung Jury SR4 Adept farm: Worth it?

If you’re courageous enough to tackle Nightfalls on Grandmaster difficulty, you could earn an Adept version of the Hung Jury SR4. 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.

PS: Keep in mind that Grandmaster Nightfalls are only available during the second half of the season.
