Riiswalker God Roll Guide – Destiny 2

Season 17 has almost hit its mid-age, but the content is still popping. The Season of the Haunted Campaign has finally been concluded, and most of the people seem to be satisfied with the outcome. But, there is still a ton of stuff left to arrive this season, and another round of Iron Banner is definitely on the list.

Now, there is no doubt, that right now if you ask a PvP player about the weapon he wants the most. There is a huge chance that he/she will end up saying, Riiswalker. And it makes sense, as it is the best shotgun for the kinetic slot in the game at the moment.

Riiswalker is definitely the top attraction of this season’s Iron Banner. And as more and more players are realizing how good the weapon is, more players are flocking to Iron Banner.

Well, Iron Banner is coming back on September 6, 2022. So, if you didn’t manage to obtain a Riiswalker previously, now is your chance.

Speaking of the weapon, Riiswalker is a Legendary Lightweight Frame 80 RPM shotgun with a Magazine Size of 6. Being a Lightweight, the weapon has insane handling and can be drawn really fast.

But that’s not what makes the Riiswalker so awesome. It is the fact that this Shotgun can roll with a perk that is exclusive to Iron Banner weapons, which is Iron Reach. Iron Reach straight up adds +20 Range to this weapon, which allows players to take down opponents easily without coming too close to them.

Riiswalker God Roll

Before you start farming the Riiswalker, it is mandatory to know about the God Rolls for the weapon. Here they are.

Riiswalker God Roll PvP

Now, people who would be farming the Riiswalker, are primarily going to farm for a PvP God Roll. The idea of a God Roll can be different for different people. If you ask me, then a Riiswalker PvP God Roll should be:

  • Barrel: Full Choke – I personally always ADS before shooting my shotguns. If you are someone who fires from the hip, Rifled Barrel is the one for you.
  • Magazine: Accurized Rounds – This is a no-brainer. You get +10 Range on your Riiswalker.
  • Trait #1: Quickdraw – This perk will allow you to draw and ready up your Riiswalker insanely fast.
  • Trait #2: Iron Reach – Again, a no-brainer. Probably one of the best range perks you can have on a shotgun. Adds +20 Range. It also reduces Stability by 30. But that doesn’t matter on shotguns.
  • Origin Trait: Skulking Wolf – Fixed perk.
  • Masterwork: Range – Max range is what we are aiming for here.
  • Mod: Icarus Grip – This will help you nail those midair shots.

Riiswalker God Roll PvP

Again, the idea of a God Roll can be different for different people. If you ask me, then a Riiswalker PvE God Roll should be:

  • Barrel: Barrel Shroud – Since we don’t need a lot of range in PvE, Barrel Shroud provides a nice +10 increase to Stability and Handling.
  • Magazine: Tactical Mag – You get an extra shot in the magazine, along with increased Reload Speed and Stability.
  • Trait #1: Slideways – Comes really handy during DPS phases.
  • Trait #2: Swashbuckler – Get a melee elimination and get an instant 33% damage increase for 4.5 seconds.
  • Origin Trait: Skulking Wolf – Fixed perk.
  • Masterwork: Reload Speed – We are aiming for faster reloads here.
  • Mod: Major Spec – For that 7.7% damage increase on Elites and Mini-bosses.

As I said, Iron Banner is coming back on September 6, 2022. So, this is the best time to get your Riiswalker. And the best part is, Iron Banner no longer has Power Level benefits, which means you don’t have to reach insanely high Power Levels to do good in it. Grab your weapons, and just play the mode. I am pretty sure, you will eventually end up obtaining that god roll Riiswalker, whether you win or lose.
