How to get Jorum’s Claw in Season 20

If you’re actively searching for Jorum’s Claw, focusing Iron Engrams at Lord Saladin is the easiest way to farm for it.

Lord Saladin will offer an Iron Engram each time you hit a new Iron Banner rank. Once you unlock Jorum’s Claw in Collections (through random end-of-match rewards or directly via Saladin’s Rank 7 reward), you can purchase copies at Saladin. However, these copies aren’t cheap; each costs one Iron Engram, 25 Legendary Shards, and 20,000 Glimmer.

How good is Jorum’s Claw today’s Meta?

Being an Adaptive Frame pulse rifle, Jorum’s Claw comes out of the gates pretty weak. These have a relatively slow time to kill in the Crucible (0.93s) and don’t feel that powerful in PvE.

That said, if we compare Jorum’s Claw’s perks to its competition, you can see where the weapon may excel. With S-Tier perks left and right, this weapon turns out to be an alright pick for all areas of the game.

Overall, we’re giving Jorum’s Claw a B-Tier ranking. While it has undeniably strong perks, its frame prevents it from rising above the competition.

Best Jorum’s Claw Rolls for PvE and PvP

Now that we’ve covered Jorum’s Claw’s sources and potential, let’s look at its best rolls for PvE and PvP.

Jorum’s Claw PvP god roll

In PvP, you’ll want to start with a foundation of range. For that reason, look for Full Bore or Extended Barrel in column one and Richochet Rounds in column two. Moving Target, Encore, and Outlaw are great picks for perk one, depending on your preference. As for the final column, Kill Clip is the clear winner—it reduces the weapon’s TTK to an insane 0.53s.

  • Barrel: Full Bore (also good: Extended Barrel)
  • Magazine: Ricochet Rounds
  • Perk 1: Encore (also good: Moving Target)
  • Perk 2: Kill Clip

Jorum’s Claw PvE god roll

You’ll still want to start with either Full Bore or Extended Barrel in PvE, solely for that bump in range. Flared Magwell is generally the best choice for the magazine, significantly decreasing reload speed and increasing stability. Outlaw is the clear-cut winner for perk one, while it’s a toss-up between Incandescent and Kill Clip for the final column.

  • Barrel: Full Bore (also good: Extended Barrel)
  • Magazine: Flared Magwell
  • Perk 1: Outlaw
  • Perk 2: Incandescent (also good: Kill Clip)

When my brother introduced me to the Destiny franchise in 2015, I immediately knew that it would take up a lot of my free time for years to come. With my over seven years of game knowledge, six months of writing experience for, and hundreds of Blueberries already guided through endgame content, I hope to allow newcomers to have the same great introduction I had all those years ago.
