Destiny 2 Warden’s Law: God Rolls and How to get it

by | Apr 16, 2024

Warden’s Law fires a unique two-round burst like any other hand cannon currently in the game. And while Bungie has stated that they plan on expanding this new archetype soon, this makes Warden’s Law one of the most interesting Legendary weapons in Destiny 2 this season. But is this one-of-a-kind weapon actually good or just a novelty?


How good is Warden’s Law

In case you missed it, hand cannons got an absurdly large buff sent their way in PvE with Season of the Witch. As a result, this weapon type is now as popular in PvE as it is in The Crucible.

But Warden’s Law isn’t your ordinary hand cannon; it fires a heavy two-round burst. While this doesn’t do much for it in PvE, even with the aforementioned buff, it does allow the weapon to excel in PvP. Especially when utilizing Kill Clip, Warden’s Law is a slept-on pick in The Crucible—as long as you can hit both shots in each burst.

PvE Roll: All-Around
Barrel Polygonal Rifling or Smallbore
Magazine Flared Magwell or Tactical Mag
Perk 1 Fourth Time’s the Charm (also good: Perpetual Motion)
Perk 2 Vorpal Weapon (also good: Frenzy)
Masterwork Reload Speed

Because Warden’s Law lacks an elemental damage type, it’s immediately outclassed by numerous other options. That is, except for one special case: pairing the weapon with Lucky Pants.

For Hunters, using a Warden’s Law with Fourth Time’s the Charm and Vorpal Weapon with Lucky Pants allows the weapon to do some significant damage for a primary weapon. While dealing optimal damage with this setup requires you to rotate between heavy (and sometimes special) ammo weapons as well, it’s easily the main draw to Warden’s Law in high-end PvE.

If you’re instead looking to run this weapon casually, Perpetual Motion or Fourth Time’s the Charm with Frenzy is your best bet.

Barrel Polygonal Rifling or Hammer-Forged Rifling
Magazine Accurized Rounds or Flared Magwell
Perk 1 Moving Target (also good: Discord)
Perk 2 Kill Clip
Masterwork Range

Warden’s Law shines a bit more in The Crucible than it does in PvE. To fully optimize the weapon for PvP, we’ll start with barrels and magazines that increase range and stability: Polygonal Rifling and Accurized Rounds. For column 3, Moving Target is generally the best pick, but Discord and Perpetual Motion can also work if you can play into them.

The final column is really where Warden’s Law gets interesting. With Kill Clip active, this weapon can two-tap any Guardian under Tier 10 Resilience. This reduces the weapon’s time to kill to 0.50s, which is absurd given Kill Clip’s consistency.

Warden’s Law: Is it worth farming?

For most Guardians, Warden’s Law isn’t worth going out of your way for. Other than the novelty of temporarily being a one-of-a-kind hand cannon, this weapon doesn’t do anything that other weapons can’t. Unless you’re looking to use Kill Clip to get two-tap kills in The Crucible, finding a different hand cannon that suits your needs better is worth it.

How to get Warden’s Law

Warden’s Law is one of six Nightfall weapons this season. Only one is available weekly, so you’ll need to wait until this one appears in the rotation to farm it directly.

After obtaining a copy of Warden’s Law, it can be purchased from Zavala for a Vanguard Engram, 25 Legendary Shards, and 20,000 Glimmer. You can buy the base version of Warden’s Law 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).
