Destiny 2 Wild Style: God Rolls and How to get it

by | Mar 6, 2024

Double Fire Breech Loaders. Like most unique archetypes released since Beyond Light, many thought this was a “one and done” thing, but Bungie proved us wrong. Released with Guardian Games 2024, Wild Style is the second weapon featuring this archetype. But is it worth chasing? Does it have what it takes to earn a spot in the current meta?

How to get the Wild Style

Wild Style can be earned from Nightfall completions. Like all Nightfall exclusive drops, you can obtain the base version from Heroic, Legend, and Master Nightfalls, while your coveted Adepts can only be earned within Grandmasters.

You can also focus the Wild Style at Zavala if you have enough currency, with Nightfall ciphers being the main component if you want adepts. You can find the entire Nightfall Weapon this Week rotation here.

How good is Wild Style going to be?

Given that our only reference is Wilderflight, it’s a little difficult to know how this will fit in the meta, especially as more and more people flock towards fusion rifles. However, grenade launchers are still amazing utility weapons and can even dish out significant damage in the right hands, and this is no different. Right off the bat, the rolls for Wild Style put it far and above Wilderflight for several reasons.

Several perks for reload, several for damage, and the origin trait, while the same as Wilder, fits right into the DPS swap meta thanks to the increase in reload and handling. Though, I wouldn’t use this for PvP, as the damage split means much harder 1-hit kills or even swap kills from ranges most would be comfortable using a GL.

To claim that Wild Style won’t fit into the meta is both right and wrong. While it doesn’t adhere to the current idea of how special grenade launchers are used, it harkens back to yesteryear, when GL swaps were a common occurrence for DPS set ups.  And, given that it is Solar, it will be a perfect addition to many loadouts this season.

Best alternatives:

Wild Style PvE god roll

  • Barrel: Hard Launch
  • Magazine: Spike Grenades
  • Perk 1: Envious Assassin or Danger Zone
  • Perk 2: Incandescent or Surrounded
  • Masterwork: Reload Speed

Compared to Wilderflight, Wild Style offers a much broader scope of perks. Where Wilderflight had a lot of damage buffing perks, Wild Style has a mix of damage and utility, which makes it much more flexible, though most will probably opt to use this as a damage weapon. However, the mainstays of Hard Launch and Spike Grenades will always be needed if using this for PvE. Blinding Grenades might also benefit you if you enjoy using them, especially given that you get two for one in each activation.

For Perk 1, there are a few good ones that will help buff reload speed, while Envious Assassin is your only “free reload” perk. No Auto-Loading is an interesting sight, but there’s more than enough to compensate for it. Perk 2 is going to be your damage or utility perk, with Surrounded and Incandescent filling those roles very nicely. The pairing of Danger Zone and Surrounded means you can use this almost as a shotgun, and in doing so, you take full advantage of the increased damage over regular breech loaders.

Wild Style  PvP god roll

  • Barrel: Quick Launch
  • Magazine: Spike Grenades or High-Velocity Rounds
  • Perk 1: Danger Zone (also good: Stats for All)
  • Perk 2: Surrounded (also good: One for All)
  • Masterwork: Handling or Blast Radius

Here is where this frame fails big time compared to other special GLs. As the trajectory of the 2nd grenade appears to be slightly random, landing far-range shots with both projectiles is very challenging. Given that the damage is split between them, you would need to have both explode close to the target to break shields and since this doesn’t get Disruption Break, we’re opting for a completely different approach. Run Quick Launch for better velocity and handling, and either Spike Nades for better damage on each direct hit or High Velocity for the increased reload speed.

Your best choice for Perk 1 is going to be Danger Zone. Much like in PvE, this is going to be used as a sort of GL-Shotgun hybrid, so running a perk that reduces self-damage by 40% is going to be very useful in those close-quarters fights. If you are in the 6v6 playlist, you might find Stats for All beneficial, given that people tend to group up there. Perk 2 is, again, Surrounded. A 35% buff to blast damage and 40% to direct hit means much easier clean-ups if you don’t manage the kill, which might happen often.
