Destiny 2’s Season of the Chosen is up and running, meaning the Cabal have returned. The Guardians are waging a bitter war against them, only time will tell who wins. Emperor Calus’ daughter Caiatl is quite powerful, and you need some new gear to put a stop to her ambitions. That’s where incredibly powerful new Exotics and other weapons come in. Some of the new stuff, like Palindrome and Shadow Price are locked to certain activities, and they’re very good.
Then there are other weapons like the newly added Engram drops. The Cabal is a rather dangerous foe, and you need to be ready to fight them off. These new tools will help with that. The Extraordinary Rendition in Destiny 2 is one of the best SMGs in the game. The gun has an Aggressive Frame, giving it boosted stats in key areas. The perk pool that comes with it has a good mix of options.
Here’s how to get Extraordinary Rendition in Destiny 2.
How to get Extraordinary Rendition in Destiny 2
Season of the Chosen features a main 12-step Challenger’s Proving questline that you need to complete. There are also weekly Seasonal challenges this season as well. You can complete these to unlock new mechanics, as well as unique rewards. Doing these tasks unlocks some very special rewards, including the new path to Umbral Engrams. This is important as you can only get Extraordinary Rendition in Destiny 2 from these Engram drops.
To get access to the rolls, you need to complete Challenger’s Proving 7, and then finish off Contender’s Ascent 7 as well. Doing this will award you the SMG. If you don’t want to wait, you can get it from either Tribute Chests, or the Tier 2 and 3 Engrams.
You will need to farm Umbral Engrams From the new Tribute Chests. That means that the older way of just playing the game is not as efficient to get Engrams. You can still get them the old way, but Bungie has clearly nerfed the drop rate. To get them faster, complete a match within the Battlegrounds playlists.
Here’s what makes it so good.

What rolls are best for it?
Best PvE rolls
Overflow and Rampage is hands-down one of the best combos in the game. And in PvE, it really cannot be beaten, Corkscrew Rifling is best for its minor buffs to Range, Handling, and Stability. The latter option is a more focused Range buff. Really, your choice boils down to your playstyle. If you want the better overall buff, Corkscrew is usually better in PvE. Chambered Compensator can be used instead, as long as you want to focus on better accuracy over direct Range buffs.
Tactical Mag is great for SMGs in PvE as it helps increase accuracy a bit while adding some extra ammo to boot. Overflow is a solid secondary option for those running Appended, as it refills ammo when you pick up certain ammo types. It’s a really good combo for Strikes. Subsistence can be good, as long as you don’t mind the reserve reduction.
- Corkscrew Rifling or Chambered Compensator
- Tactical Mag
- Overflow or Subsistence
- Rampage or Frenzy
Best PvP rolls
Accurized Rounds and Extended Barrel are musts when running this gun in PvP. Despite have tons of firepower, the long-range capability is limited. So if you want to run this gun, push for as much of a buff to Range as you can get. Zen Moment is another must here, as you need all the help you can get staying on target. Crucible is highly competitive, meaning that something Rampage can be really strong thanks to the increased DPS.
- Extended Barrel
- Accurized Rounds
- Zen Moment
