Destiny - Best New Faction Weapon Rolls Guide

The best new weapon rolls from the Vanguard, Crucible, Dead Orbit, Future War Cult, and New Monarchy. Do we have our April Update Hung Jury?

This guide is going to give you the low down on all the new must have weapons from Vendors in Destiny 2.2.0. With the new update, vendors and factions refreshed the weapons they were selling, so they have all new perks. There were a few must haves for the first few months of TTK, and now we have the next set you are going to want to get your hands on.

Apple of Dischord - Pulse Rifle

  • Headseeker - Body shots with this weapon increase precision damage for a short time
  • Counterbalance - This weapon has increased stability

And a choice between:

  • Snapshot - Aiming this weapon is incredibly fast
  • Hand Loaded - This weapon is effective at an extended range.

You had a chance to chose Apple of Dischord as an option for completing a Vanguard quest in TTK, but this roll is about as perfect as you can hope for. Pulse rifle users rejoice.

Hitchhiker FR4 - Fusion Rifle

  • Hidden Hand - This weapon gains better target acquisition
  • Hot Swap - Readying this weapon grants a brief period of bonus accuracy

This roll has maxed out impact. there are some tradeoffs, but with the overall Fusion Buffs, you could be seeing this weapon a lot in the Crucible.

Future War Cult

The Villainy - Pulse Rifle

  • Perfect Balance
  • Reinforced Barrel
  • Skip Rounds
  • Headseeker 
  • Glass Half Full

This one looks to be dead accurate. Glass half full isn't a huge boon, but will help you take down multiple targets or defend yourself after a firefight.

The Smolder - Rocket Launcher

  • Tracking
  • Javelin
  • Tripod

Absolutely pick one up. Tripod means three rockets in the chamber (or as many as the crucible lets you pick up) as well as tracking. Put javelin on there and your impact radius will increase. This is a no brainer for people without a solid rocket launcher besides truth.
