Destiny 2 Loaded Question: God Rolls and How to get it

by | Aug 30, 2023

Loaded Question is one of this season’s featured Nightfall weapons. While fusion rifles are all-around good weapons, this one features a few very specific Adept rolls worthy of your time.

We’ll cover how to get and farm Loaded Question this season, how good it is today, as well as go over our recommended god rolls for PvP and PvE.

How to get Loaded Question this Season

Loaded Question is a Nightfall weapon, which means you can only get it by completing a strike from the Nightfall playlist on any difficulty. Higher difficulties increase your chances of getting a copy of the weapon.

Nightfall weapons rotate every week, so get to know the current Nightfall rotation and make sure you are playing during the right week. You don’t want to waste time on farming the wrong weapon.

To get the Adept version of the Loaded Question you will need to complete the Grandmaster Nightfall featuring this weapon.

After obtaining a copy of Loaded Question, it can be purchased from Zavala for a Vanguard Engram, 25 Legendary Shards, and 20,000 Glimmer. You can buy the base version at any point, but you’ll need to wait through the six-week rotation to purchase Adept variants. These Adept versions also cost more currency and require Nightfall Ciphers (available from Grandmaster Nightfalls).

How good is Loaded Question

Loaded Question is primarily a PvE weapon. The Adept version is actually one of the most popular legendary fusion rifles at the moment. The Stunning Recovery origin trait is a great thing to have in endgame content that has Champions, especially with the Unstoppable Fusion artifact perk in Season 22.

In PvP, fusion rifles, especially high-impact frames, are very deadly. But Loaded Question is not the best one for the job. Even the Adept version lies below more accessible PvP options like Riptide and Iterative Loop.

Best Loaded Question Rolls for PvE and PvP

Loaded Question PvE god roll

  • Barrel: Arrowhead Break
  • Magazine: Accelerated Coils
  • Perk 1: Overflow
  • Perk 2: Controlled Burst
  • Masterwork: Handling or Range

There is a good variety of PvE perks for Loaded Question. Arrowhead Brake with Accelerated Coils will make the gun faster and smoother. But feel free to experiment; something like a Smallbore will give you a good boost to your range and stability should you need any.

The stable perk combination here is Overflow with a Controlled Burst. Overflow will maximize your DPS with extra ammo (you can also equip a few scavenger armor mods), and Controlled Burst is perfect for damaging tanky enemies.

Good perk alternatives are Auto-Loading Holster and Envious Assassin as Perk 1 and Frenzy or Reservoir Burst as Perk 2. Frenzy is better for more intense fights, and Reservoir Burst is aimed at dealing with squishier targets like mini-bosses or majors.

Loaded Question PvP god roll

  • Barrel: Chambered Compensator
  • Magazine: Projection Fuse
  • Perk 1: MUnder Pressure
  • Perk 2: Eye of the Storm
  • Masterwork: Handling or Range

In PvP, fusion rifles are extremely strong, allowing you to kill a Guardian with one burst if you have a good setup. But Loaded Question is lacking with its perks.

For the Barrel, we recommend Chambered Compensator for increased stability and recoil. The Projection Fuse in the magazine column will give you extra range, which is always good in PvP. You can go for different options; just make sure you get something for both range and stability.

For perks, the only decent combination is Under Pressure and Eye of the Storm. There is literally nothing else in the PvP department. Under Pressure will consistently give you improved stability and accuracy as the magazine size of fusion rifles is naturally low. Eye of the Storm will keep you steady while taking damage. You can try to go for a Controlled Burst, but it will be very difficult to take advantage of it on a regular basis.

Loaded Question: Is it worth farming?

Loaded Question is a decent fusion rifle to farm but we wouldn’t say it’s a must. After all, it can be tricky to get the perks you want, especially from Nightfall strikes.

So instead you can try and get your hands on the Iterative Loop or Royal Executioner. Both are great energy fusion rifles to have in your arsenal for PvE.

You can use Loaded Question for PvP if you got lucky with a roll but don’t bother specifically farming for it. There are far better options like the Main Ingredient that dominates the fusion rifle weapon type.

Interested in more top-tier Season of the Witch weapons? You should definitely check out the new Tesselation Exotic Fusion or the Pre Astyanax IV Bow. Both are new weapons that are getting a lot of traction this season.
