A great Legendary Pulse Rifle is the Gridskipper in Destiny 2. The story here involves Fallen Captain Mithrax teaming up with Guardians to stop a mutual enemy. You will need some very strong The Season of the Splicer is a huge change to the game for weapon variety, and this rapid-fire monster is a versatile choice. The Rapid-Fire Frame mod makes it pretty suited for both PvE and PvP, although most will prefer the former. Here’s how to get this new seasonal weapon.
How to Get the Gridskipper
Farming for Gridskipper is very easy to do once you know where to look. Since it’s a seasonal drop, you need to aim for activities that deal with the Splicer theme. That means things like eh Override activity are a great source of rolls. During this activity and playing the game, you will earn Splicer Reputation packs, these often drop the Gridskipper. You can also get them via Umbral Engrams and the Weekly Challenges.
Splicer Vandal’s Armory Engrams and the basic Splicer Armory Engrams appear to be the best. You need to focus your Umbral Engrams with Decrypted Data to boost your odds. And yes, you need to have completed Triumph’s and unlocked the Prismatic Recaster to do this part. You can get both Gridskipper and Farewell from these two Engrams.
Best Rolls for The Gridskipper
The Gridskipper PVE God Roll
- Corkscrew Rifling
- Armor-Piercing Rounds
- Heating Up or Moving Target
- Frenzy or Multi-Killclip
Corkscrew Rifling is arguably the best choice here for PvE if you need the accuracy at range. Hammer-Forged Rifling is a lesser choice if you can’t get the best one. Fluted Barrel is also an acceptable choice in this slot. Armor-Piercing Rounds is by far the best choice for PvP and PvE with this gun. Ricochet Rounds might help for clear of small mob packs, but only really works in small areas.
The first perk is a bit open in terms of choice. There’s no real killer choice here. Heating Up or Moving Target can be picked here, but frankly, this is a really open choice. Frenzy or Multi-Killclip are the best primary perk options on this weapon for PvE play. You get great DPS boosts for these perks as long as you can keep alive. As long as you have a good team, you should be doing plenty of damage.
The Gridskipper PVP God Roll
- Arrowhead Brake
- Armor-Piercing Rounds
- Tunnel Vision or Killing Wind
Arrowhead Brake is great for the recoil bonus, offering more stable shots. Armor-Piercing Rounds is by far the best choice for PvP. There are a few options to increase reload speed that can work if you’re desperate, but you really want that piercing. The damage to shields really can’t be beaten. If you can’t get that, try to get something like Flared Magwell or High-Caliber Rounds.
For other perks, you only really have a couple of viable options.
The choice between Tunnel Vision or Killing Wind comes down to your playstyle. Most players will opt for the reload and ADS speed after getting a single kill. Killing Wind is a bit better if you’re good enough to string kills together. Frenzy is the best PvP roll, at least for Gridskipper in Destiny 2. Since you will be fighting a lot, it’s the best perk.
