Destiny 2 Trust: God Rolls and How to get it

by | Apr 19, 2023

Trust returns with Season of the Defiance as a Gambit weapon. Trust is a 180 RPM Precision Frame Hand Cannon and offers several unique rolls for its archetype. A fan favorite since it first appeared during the Forsaken era, Trust retains its unique gun model and sound effects to bring nostalgia while featuring most of the latest perks in Destiny 2.

How to get Trust in Season 20

Trust is currently available as a random drop from Gambit match completions. Not yet included within the Drifter’s inventory for direct focus using Gambit Engrams, the best way to farm Trust is to play Gambit with a Prosperity (Gambit) Ghost Mod equipped for the best chance at getting post-game loot.

How good is the Trust today

180 RPM Hand Cannons are in a tight spot for PvE and PvP currently. They are definitely fun to use with a snappy feel to them, but they lack slightly more power to become meta. Trust is definitely helping to break that mold, thanks to some of the great perk combinations it offers. A well-rolled Trust is worthy of a place in any Guardian inventory in both PvE and PvP.

Best Trust Rolls for PvE and PvP

Sporting a unique perk set, Trust does come with some rolls worth keeping an eye out for in PvE and PvP. 180 Hand Cannons as a whole may be in a bit of a tight spot, but in the right hands, they can be a lot of fun.

Trust PvP god roll

For PvP, pushing the boundaries is how to get the best out of Trust. Hammer-Forged Rifling with a +10 to Range paired with Accurized Rounds with a further +10 Range helps enhance your engagements.

Opening Shot sits best here in column three to ensure that when that engagement starts, you have the advantage of honing in on that headshot. Rapid Hit or Snapshot are close contenders, but it’s that advantage from the first shot which makes Opening Shot best in a slot for this archetype.

Column four is definitely spoiled for choice, Explosive Payload comes out on top here due to the extra damage on hits and the fact it splits 50 percent of this is have no damage falloff. This means we are pushing its Range even further out and adding extra damage on top. This is what gives Trust an advantage due to the flinch it will cause your opponents, making you harder to hit and this weapon to hit harder.

  • Barrel: Hammer-Forged Rifling
  • Magazine: Accurized Rounds
  • Perk 1: Opening Shot
  • Perk 2: Explosive Payload

Trust PvE god roll

PvE offers some interesting rolls for Trust. Smallbore is the barrel of choice with its +7 to Range and Stability. Arrowhead Break or Corkscrew Rifling both serve well for PvE. Appended Mag will be used to increase the Magazine size, which works worst best with Incandescent or Frenzy.

Rapid Hit brings the synergy of slots two, three, and four together. More ammo, faster reload, and Stability on headshots rounded off with Incandescent causing explosions and applying Scorch to nearby enemies. This roll pairs perfectly with a Solar subclass set for Scorch and Ignite.

There are other combos here that work, such as Frenzy, Golden Tricorn, and Adrenaline Junkie, for how they boost damage. While they all can have a place, Incandescent wins out for its effectiveness in clearing groups of enemies at a time.

  • Barrel: Smallbore
  • Magazine: Appended Mag
  • Perk 1: Rapid Hit
  • Perk 2: Incandescent

Trust: Is it worth it?

Trust looks cool, it sounds cool, and who doesn’t want to be notorious while they’re out there saving the Traveler?

Trust is currently not a best-in-slot pick, but it can hold its own in lower and mid-level content such as the Strike playlist or lower-tier Nightfalls and can do some damage in the right hands in PvP. If you are a fan of cool Hand Cannons, a well-rolled Trust is a must.

Before you go…

If you’re looking to put together a strong PvP loadout able to compete in the current Meta, we recommend taking a closer look at the Autumn Wind Pulse rifle.
