Locus Locutus PvE God Roll

Our choices for the Locus Locutus PvE God Roll are:

BarrelArrowhead Brake
MagazineTactical Mag
Column 3 TraitOverflow
Column 4 TraitFiring Line

Snipers have been in and out of the meta weapons for years. They pack a massive punch but require a certain amount of accuracy on often very high zoom scopes. However, snipers are some of the best special damage weapons for long range encounters, or against bosses with large crit spots.

Locus Locutus comes packed with solid perks for PvE and one of the best damage perks for group content. The combination of Overflow and Firing Line is incredibly strong and one of the best damage options available. Its incredibly easy to get setup by standing near allies and picking up ammo bricks. We do want to boost our mag with tactical mag and our other perks are to assist in landing accuracy shots or swapping to the weapon faster.

Overall, not the highest damage sniper frame, the Locus Locutus still packs a massive punch and has a great combination for damage perks.

Locus Locutus PvP God Roll

Our choices for the Locus Locutus PvP God Roll are:

BarrelFluted Barrel
MagazineAccurized Rounds
Column 3 TraitSurplus
Column 4 TraitOpening Shot

Snipers are a PvP favorite special weapon coming just below shotguns in most use cases. Their one shot potential and accuracy make them a very potent weapon in the hands of a PvP player. They do require some practice to be effective; however, they are incredibly rewarding once the skill curve has been learned.

Locus Locutus has a really strong selection of PvP perks boosting the weapons stats and accuracy allowing an already dangerous weapon to become nearly unstoppable. Building into range and handling is incredibly important on a sniper to give the weapon a better feel and increase out likelihood of landing shots. With that in mind, the recommended perk combination is Surplus and Opening Shot which leans into both our focused stats.

Overall, a powerful sniper for PvP and easy to obtain and craft a desired roll.
