Destiny 2 Round Robin: God Rolls and How to get it

by | Mar 15, 2023

One of the few Legendary Strand weapons to arrive with Lightfall, the Round Robin hand cannon has some abilities that many other competitors lack, which makes it a worthy reason to further explore Neomuna.

In this article, we’ll tell you exactly how to get your hands on it, the best places to farm, and its god rolls for both PVE and PVP.

How to get Round Robin in Season 20

Round Robin is a destination weapon from Neomuna, meaning it’s relatively easy to get your hands on. Plus, it’s craftable, meaning you’re guaranteed to get the roll you want with a good amount of dedication.

Because Round Robin is simply a destination weapon, farming it is relatively straightforward: just complete activities on Neomuna. While doing this, keep your eyes peeled for heroic (golden) patrol missions; completing one guarantees you a Neomuna weapon.

A final thing to note is that if you reach Rank 30 with Nimbus, the engrams they offer will also guarantee you a Neomuna weapon (with a chance of it being Deepsight).

How good is the Round Robin in today’s Meta?

Being one of the first Strand weapons released, Round Robin immediately races past the competition for PvE. And, in PvP, this hand cannon can kill a Guardian in only half a second.

Some older choices, like Crimil’s Dagger from Iron Banner, are capable of some of the same things. However, Round Robin has a surprisingly strong set of perks for a destination weapon, allowing it to soar above the rest.

All that said, Round Robin is an A-tier weapon. But while it has a lot going for it (especially in PvP), it’s not something everyone needs to chase.

Best Round Robin Rolls for PvE and PvP

Now that you know how to get Round Robin and why it’s good, let’s move to our favorite rolls that you should look out for.

Round Robin hand cannon gameplay

Round Robin PvP god roll

If you’re chasing Round Robin for PvP, the primary stat you’re looking for is range. Because of that, Hammer-Forged Rifling and Richochet Rounds are the best. If the reload speed is unbearable, swapping Richochet Rounds for Flared Magwell isn’t a bad choice either. In the fourth column, Kill Clip is an easy choice due to its 2-tap potential. As for the third column, many enjoy Killing Wind, but Keep Away isn’t a bad choice either for reload and range.

  • Barrel: Hammer-Forged Rifling
  • Magazine: Richochet Rounds (also good: Flared Magwell)
  • Perk 1: Killing Wind (also good: Keep Away)
  • Perk 2: Kill Clip

Round Robin PvE god roll

Round Robin’s main appeal in PvE is its Strand element. Especially with Hatchling in the final column, there’s lots of synergy between this weapon and the Strand subclasses. The third column, however, isn’t as interesting. If you’re looking to use this for any reason other than pairing it with a Strand build, you’re out of luck. But Round Robin can get a couple of great Strand rolls, so keep an eye out for these!

  • Barrel: Hammer-Forged Rifling
  • Magazine: Flared Magwell (also good: Light Mag)
  • Perk 1: Keep Away (also good: Fourth Time’s the Charm)
  • Perk 2: Hatchling (also good: Golden Tricorn)
