PvE – The Immortal God Roll

The following list includes all Destiny 2 The Immortal God Roll traits for PvE

MagazineFlared Magwell
Perk 1Dynamic Sway Reduction
Perk 2Hatchling
Origin TraitField-Tested, Alacrity
ModMinor Spec

Barrel: SMG’s suffer from being short to mid range weapons, so bumping up range and to a lesser extent stability is very helpful. Smallbore does both of these things decently. Hammer-Forged Rifiling, Polygonal Rifling, and Fluted Barrel are also decent choices. Avoid Arrowhead Brake as this thing doesn’t really need the recoil help.

Magazine: More rounds down range is always the play in PvE. The magazine enhancement perks such as Appended Mag and Extended Mag don’t give this weapon a lot of help, which leaves Flared Magwell to help Reload Speed.

Column 3 Perk: For PvE, any perk here will do. There isn’t a perk here that helps tremendously better than any of the others. Dynamic Sway Reduction is always a solid choice.

Column 4 Perk: For Strand synergy the best perk here is absolutely Hatchling by a large margin; however, an argument for Target Lock, Kill Clip, and Demolitionist could be made.

Masterwork: Generally more Range is always helpful on an SMG.

Origin Trait: Field Tested is decent for most use cases, but switch to Alacrity if solo.

Mod: Primaries are often used as minor combatant clearing weapons and so generally minor spec is almost always the best choice in PvE for them.

Conclusion: This weapon feels designed PvP, which makes a lot of sense considering where it comes from. That said it is indeed a decent PvE weapon as well.

PvP – The Immortal God Roll

The following list includes all Destiny 2 The Immortal God Roll traits for PvP

BarrelFull Bore
MagazineRicochet Rounds
Perk 1Rangefinder
Perk 2Kill Clip
Origin TraitAlacrity
ModAdept Range (Targeting Adjuster)

Barrel: This submachine gun allows for range to get boosted almost all the way to the max. Full Bore is absolutely the best perk for this with Extended Barrel and Hammer-Forged Rifling also working.

Magazine: Ricochet Rounds is almost always the play when it can be gotten. High-Calibur Rounds also works as well.

Column 3 Perk: While there are few good options here, such as Perpetual Motion and Dynamic Sway Reduction, the best choice is still Rangefinder. Rangefinder buffs zoom factor which helps so much with target acquisition and aim assist.

Column 4 Perk: Being able to lower the TTK of a weapon is always a godsend, and Kill Clip undeniably does this better than any of the other perks. This allows for an Optimal TTK of .58 seconds when active and its also very forgiving. Controller users can also get some good out of Tap the Trigger, but even there Kill Clip is still the better option. Target Lock is also a very sought after option, allowing for an extremely forgiving TTK.

Masterwork: Again boosting Range is undoubtedly the best choice.

Mod: For the Adept version of this weapon, Adept Range is going to take this to places most SMG’s can’t go. For regular versions, the old main stay of both Targeting Adjuster and Icarus Grip will be fine.

Conclusion: This SMG certainly has the potential to shift the Meta. Being able to get it with Rangefinder and Kill Clip will make it absolutely shred through other guardians at some crazy ranges. This is an absolute must have for PvP. That being said, it will not be easy to obtain although it will be worth it.
