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

by | Sep 12, 2023

Unlike any other hand cannon currently in the game, Warden’s Law fires a unique two-round burst. And while Bungie has stated that they plan on expanding this new archetype soon, this makes Warden’s Law arguably the most interesting Legendary weapon in Destiny 2 for the time being.

But is this one-of-a-kind weapon actually good or just a novelty? What rolls should you look out for on it? How do you obtain it? Read on, as in this article, we’ll cover all that and more.

How to get Warden’s Law this Season

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.

How to get Warden’s Law, Destiny 2

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).

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.

Best Warden’s Law Rolls for PvE and PvP

Warden’s Law PvE god roll

  • Barrel: Polygonal Rifling or Smallbore
  • Magazine: Flared Magwell or Tactical Mag
  • Perk 1: Perpetual Motion (also good: Enlightened Action)
  • Perk 2: Frenzy (also good: Rampage)
  • Masterwork: Reload Speed

Because Warden’s Law lacks an elemental damage type, it’s immediately outclassed by numerous other options. Regardless, this weapon does provide substantial raw power in lower-difficulty activities.

We’re simply looking for things that increase reload speed and stability for the barrel and magazine. For that reason, Polygonal Rifling and Flared Magwell are perfect. Column 3 isn’t filled with much for PvE, but Perpetual Motion and Enlightened Action aren’t horrible picks to increase reload speed. Lastly, utilizing a generic damage perk like Frenzy or Rampage is your best choice in the final column, as no options will synergize with subclasses.

Warden’s Law PvP god roll

  • 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.

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.
