Destiny 2 Rufus’s Fury: God Rolls and How to get it

by | Mar 4, 2024

Raids always come with some of the best and most unique weapons the game offers, and Root of Nightmares is no exception. Rufus’s Fury, a 720 RPM Auto Rifle, is an excellent example of this and is perhaps the best weapon to come from the raid.

How to get Rufus’s Fury

As mentioned previously, Rufus’s Fury comes from the Root of Nightmares raid. More specifically, this weapon can drop from the third (Zo’aurc) and final (Nezarec) encounters. Once you obtain Rufus’s Fury from one of those encounters, two more acquisition methods will unlock: hidden chests located throughout the raid will have a chance of dropping the auto rifle, and you’ll be able to purchase additional copies with Spoils of Conquest at the final vendor.

Like other recent raid weapons, Rufus’s Fury is also craftable. You can find the full Vow loot table here.

How good is Rufus’s Fury

Like most Strand weapons, Rufus’s Fury’s main potency comes from its synergies with Strand subclasses. And with the ability to roll with some outstanding perk combinations, this auto rifle is the best Strand primary weapon we’ve seen thus far.

Most of Rufus’s Fury’s competition lies in Perpetualis, a Strand auto rifle from Season of Defiance. However, compared to Perpetualis, Rufus’s has better rolls and is part of what most consider a superior frame (720 RPM).

Because of all this, we consider Rufus’s Fury S-Tier for PvE. It has extraordinary rolls for every part of the game, with some significant Strand synergies as a bonus.

Rufus’s Fury PvE god roll

This auto rifle is a powerhouse in PvE. For main stats, you’ll want the same ones we mentioned above—stability and range. Therefore, the first two columns of traits won’t change. As for the perks, you can go a couple of different ways here. Reconstruction and Target Lock won’t do you wrong if you want a pure workhorse weapon. But if you’re looking for excellent Strand synergy, Demolitionist and Hatchling is easily the best choice.

  • Barrel: Polygonal Rifling or Hammer-Forged Rifling
  • Magazine: Ricochet Rounds (also good: Flared Magwell)
  • Perk 1: Demolitionist (also good: Reconstruction)
  • Perk 2: Hatchling (also good: Target Lock)

Rufus’s Fury PvP god roll

  • Barrel: Polygonal Rifling or Hammer-Forged Rifling
  • Magazine: Ricochet Rounds
  • Perk 1: Perpetual Motion
  • Perk 2: Target Lock

While this is more of a PvE pick, Rufus’s Fury can also hold its own in PvP. To start, you’ll want to focus on high stability and range; Polygonal Rifling, Hammer-Forged Rifling, and Ricochet Rounds are great for this. Perpetual Motion is best for Perk One, while Target Lock is great for your second.
