Destiny 2 Compass Rose God Roll for PvE and PvP


These two destiny 2 Compass Rose God Rolls are deceptively effective. Most people will overlook this brand new Solstice shotgun, but I think that’s a mistake. It has a handful of perk combos that could make it a real META contender, and I wouldn’t be surprised if more people started using it — in PvP, at least — in the coming months.

I’m going to take a deep dive into these two Compass Rose God Rolls. I’ll talk about what makes each of them tick and why I think it’s one of the most sleepy weapons in the game right now.

So if you’re curious what destiny 2 latest shotgun has to offer, check out these two Compass Rose God Rolls.

  • Smooth bore
  • Accurate rounds
  • turn
  • trench barrel

I’m one of the very few non-Titan players who love a shotgun in endgame PvE. I’m primarily a Void Hunter, so I always have invisibility available, which makes it very easy to get into shotgun range even in Grandmaster Nightfalls (although you should never put a shotgun in one of those). Against this background, I have to say that I LOVE this Compass Rose reel. If it were Kinetic it would be one of my favorite weapons. However, I would not recommend it to anyone. At all. Shotguns are not META in PvE unless used for wombo combo with a melee titan build. Just because I like weird things doesn’t mean you should too. I also run Glaives in endgame.

In PvP, a shotgun’s range needs to be around 70 to maximize efficiency. In PvE, I like to have as much range as possible, so maybe I overdid it a bit Smooth bore and Accurate rounds. A lot of people don’t like it Smooth bore due to how it affects the weapon’s pellet spread, but PvE targets are often large enough that it doesn’t make a difference – but the increased range does.

I use shotguns to quickly deal with chunky majors and yellow bars. These enemies almost always have some form of shields turn a surprisingly effective benefit. It grants the user an overshield when breaking through an enemy’s shield – which is the weapon’s primary use case. Having this overshield up close is a life saver.

To me, turn combinations with trench barrel extremely good. Traditional, trench barrel is an S-Tier PvE perk that activates some of the shotgun/titanium wombo combos mentioned above, but I use it to combine with my hunter’s smoke bombs.

The weapon is extremely effective at what it does – I turn invisible and get close to a Major. I then throw a smoke bomb at them to disable them and hit a melee attack. turn Gives me an overshield when I shoot and the damage buff off trench barrel is active. It only takes two or three shots to kill most enemies, and at that point I get my invisibility back for killing an enemy affected by my smoke bomb. It’s a combination made from heaven.

That being said, it’s not going to work that well for everyone. Still, I think this is Compass Rose’s definitive PvE god-roll. Someone could argue that light bulb is a better choice – but that’s an AD clear perk, and shotguns aren’t AD clear weapons. So keep that in mind if you decide to use a roll of your own.

Compass Rose PvP God Roll

  • Full choke
  • Accurate rounds
  • Fast drawing
  • Snapshot Sights

In PvP, Compass Rose really comes into its own as a META contender. That shouldn’t be too surprising since it’s a shotgun. In addition, however, it has a special perk combination that makes it really useful at the highest levels of the game.

I hold Accurate rounds from the PvE role, but I replace Smooth bore With Full choke. Accurate rounds enough to increase the weapon’s range to over 70, so you don’t have to go all-in on a range-based run. Instead of this, Full choke will streamline our pellet spread and make one-shot kills significantly easier.

Looking at all the potential perk rolls, it’s clear that the only real Compass Rose is PvP God role Quickdraw/Snapshot Sights. These two perks are up there with opening shot as the best shotgun perks in the game.

Fast drawing lets you pull out the compass rose insanely fast – something incredibly important in Crucible as you need to quickly adapt to range changes during a gunfight.

Snapshot Sights synergizes incredibly well with this as it increases our ADS speed. Going from your primary weapon to ADSing with this shotgun takes just a fraction of a second, and that’s a game changer when it comes to how you approach many PvP scenarios.

I don’t think Compass Rose will be at the top of the PvP META, and I don’t see it becoming a common use in PvE. However, it’s a great alternative to something like a Felwinter for anyone looking for a different shotgun.
