How to get Redback-5si
This SMG can be claimed from pretty much any method. The gun itself is not locked to any unique activity, so you can get it from multiple places. Banshee-44 drops are a great source of some good perks. There are also really helpful Adept mods you can get from the Trials of Osiris. This is actually very fitting for the PvP god roll of this weapon.
Redback-5si PvE God Roll
Your options for PvE are actually a lot more open than you might think. SMGs usually have a pretty good mod pool, and the Redback-5si god roll for these modes is pretty flexible. Accurized Rounds is by far the best all-round option for both variants. Your perk choices have a ton of variance based on what mods you like to run. If you want to be up in the action. Surrounded is far more helpful. Subsistence will likely be the preferred option for most players in that instance as well.

- Perpetual Motion or Subsistence
- Surrounded or Vorpal Weapon

Hammer-Forged Rifling and Accurized Rounds return for the PvP god roll as well. Can’t really beat this combo. The choice between Killing Wind or Perpetual Motion will depend a bit on your playstyle.
