destiny 2 Something New Hand Cannon has two potential god rolls for PvE and PvP that I think could really affect the META – albeit in a small way. I will go through these rolls in detail and describe why I think they are slept on.
Something new is a tongue-in-cheek joke and a new hand cannon that will be added destiny 2 with the 2022 Solstice event. It’s a reskin of D1’s Better Devils hand cannon, which itself has been remade and reskinned several times. So this is far from the first time we’ve seen this hand cannon, but it’s the first time we’ve seen it in this way.
As a stasis hand cannon, this weapon is of course compared to the popular Vulpecula. I will consider these comparisons to these god rolls and analyze the differences between the two in moderate detail.
If you’re looking for a slightly new god, you can farm along the way destiny 2 Solstice 2022, make it one of them.
Something New God Rolls
Something New PvE God Roll
- Hammerforged Rifle
- Ricochet Rounds
- Triple tap
In my opinion, this somewhat new PvE godroll has the potential to downgrade Vulpecula as a stasis hand cannon. While Vulpecula gets Outlaw/Headstonegets something new Triple Rooster/Tombstone – probably a stronger combination.
Something new is a 120 rpm hand cannon. That’s not a popular archetype these days. They’re slow and bulky – something this hand cannon definitely suffers from. I have chosen Hammerforged Rifle Above thoroughbred for this reason. Our handling and reload speeds are already desperately slow – so I want to avoid slowing them down more than necessary.
Ricochet Rounds are a handgun staple that add good range, so I’ve gone with that perk here. Alternatively, you could walk Issued magwell to try and help with that slow reload speed. This perk column ultimately comes down to personal preference.
That Triple Rooster/Tombstone Combination is the real highlight of this somewhat new Pve God Roll. Triple tap will restore bullets to your magazine on precision kills while tombstone will create stasis shards on precision kills. The synergy speaks for itself. Given how stubborn 120s you’ll never need to expend more than a shot or two to kill a regular red bar, meaning you’ll have a constant supply of Stasis Crystals to fuel your build.
That means, of course, that it competes with that Outlaw/Headstone Vulpecula, but choosing between the two depends on what you’re more comfortable with.
Normally I wouldn’t even talk about it dream work Trait, but on this very specific roll it’s actually quite useful, serving as a second source for refilling your magazine without reloading, further enhancing this weapon’s potential.
Something New PvP God Roll
- Hammerforged Rifle
- Ricochet Rounds
- feeding frenzy
- Multikill clip
In truth, this will probably be the go-to reel when people think of the Something New God Roll. Not only is it a monster in PvP, but this set of perks could also be considered a PvE god-roll. It’s not all that common for a single weapon roll to do so well on both aspects destiny 2
I kept both Hammerforged Rifle and Ricochet Rounds On this role, I put her in the PvE God role for the same reasons. They add extra range without sacrificing our already terrible handling.
However, keeping our handling is not that important for this role. feeding frenzy is our favorite bonus in column three. For those who don’t know, this perk increases your reload speed per kill for a short time. Eliminate the weapon’s greatest weakness.
Now, feeding frenzy is not as strong as To forbid in PvP because it requires multiple kills to get into the highest tiers of reload speed. But even a single kill will make a noticeable difference. Given that something new is a 120 rpm Hand cannon, it hits like a truck so multikills are certainly not out of the question.
feeding frenzy fits incredibly well Multikill clip, which increases your weapon’s damage when reloading after a kill. There are three tiers to this buff, with three quick kills before reloading granting you a 50% damage buff. If you can get this to work constantly in the Crucible, you’re ruining everyone’s day.
The damage potential here means this somewhat new Godroll works in both PvE and PvP. However, 120 rpm Hand cannons currently have no place in the PvE META as generic ad-free weapons. If you want to run this in Nightfalls or Raids, I would highly recommend going for that tombstone roll and put into a stasis build. This will allow you to get as much value as possible out of this “new” hand cannon.
