Destiny 2: How To Get The Wastelander M5 Shotgun

How to get Strange Favor and Coins in Destiny 2

The Wastelander M5 is the newest Lightweight Frame shotgun that players can get in Destiny 2.  The game has added a bunch of new weapons in the Bungie 30th Anniversary event. During that time, we’re going to be seeing a lot of people chasing the god roll for these weapons. The mods and addons for the shotgun are pretty varied, and a few of them are quite useful.

To get the shotgun, you need to do runs of the Dares of Eternity activity. For doing this, you get a treasure key. Once you have collected a key, all you need to do is visit Xur’s Treasure Hoard and use them on the big white chest there. The drops are random, so you won’t get this weapon all the time.

Destiny 2: Wasterlander M5 God Roll

This shotgun can roll with notable shotgun perks like Trench Barrel, One-Two Punch, Dual Loader, and Subsistence. These are all pretty good. And with a nice mix of rolls, the Wastelander M5 can dominate in both PvP and PvE. WIth the right setup, you can make this gun work in both modes, provided you’re willing to get into the face of your opponent.

Wasterlander M5 God Roll PvE

  • Rifled Barrel
  • Assault Mag
  • Perpetual Motion
  • Trench Barrel

Perpetual Motion is a great general option for those wanting to zip around the map. Trench Barrel is great for Guardians polishing off enemies. Just rush in and smack them, then pop a round in them to finish the target off. Assault Mag gives you a lot more shots per second, helping you out when there’s a lot of targets.

Wasterlander M5 God Roll PvP

  • Rifled Barrel
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Slideshot
  • Opening Shot or Killing Wind

Depending on your setup you have a couple of options. If you like to get in their face, a run-and-gun style with a good amount of range is key. Mobility is critical in Crucible, and you need to always be moving. Being able to hit your target will depend on how good you are at getting that killing shot. Rifled Barrel does increase the Range stat, but at the cost of handling speed, so you need to work on your overall accuracy. Accurized Rounds can help with that. And depending on how well you can kill in the opening or final shot, pick from either Opening Shot or Killing Wind.
