Something New God Roll – Destiny 2

Destiny 2’s Solstice 2022 event is finally here, and we couldn’t help but be more excited. The new update has brought a ton of new content to the game for players to dig in.

You can get all the information you want about the Solstice of Heroes event from here. But to keep it short, With Solstice, Destiny 2 is bringing back Event Cards in a manner similar to the O.G. Destiny. A list of objectives to accomplish throughout the event will be inside the card. All players will have free access to the Event Card, which contains special event rewards, event challenges, event seals, titles, and other ordinary event awards.

The Solstice Event has also brought 2 even-exclusive weapons. One of them is a Hand Cannon called Something New.

Something New is a Legendary 120 RPM Stasis Kinetic Hand Cannon with a Magazine Size of 8. It is an Aggressive Frame HC which means, it is built for high damage and high recoil.

Something New Hand Cannon - Destiny 2

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

Something New God Roll (PvP)

Now, Something New is actually a PvE-focused Hand Cannon, so it is lacking a lot of vital PvP perks. Still, if you are looking for a Something New PvP God Roll, this what you should aim for:

  • Barrel: Hammer-Forged Rifling – Gives you a nice +10 Range boost
  • Magazine: Ricochet Rounds – Gives you +5 Range and +10 Stability
  • Basic Trait #1: Tunnel Vision – After Reloading within 6 seconds of a weapon elimination, you get 20 Aim Assist, -20% Accuracy Cone Size, for 5 seconds.
  • Basic Trait #2: Headstone – Most of the perks in this slot are focused on PvE.
  • Basic Origin Trait: Dreamwork – Once per reload, assists or assisted final blows partially refill the weapon from reserves, potentially overflowing the magazine. This is a fixed perk. We don’t have a choice here.
  • Masterwork: Range – Pretty obvious.
  • Mod: Counterbalance Stock – Makes the Recoil manageable.

Something New God Roll (PvE)

Something new has a good selection of PvE perks. Ihe idea of a God Roll can be different for different people. If you ask me, then a Something PvE God Roll should be:

  • Barrel: Arrowhead Brake – Makes the Recoil manageable, and gives you +10 Handling.
  • Magazine: Appended Mag – +2 Rounds to the magazine.
  • Basic Trait #1: Stats For All – After Damaging 3 Separate Enemies within 3 seconds of each, you get 10 Range with 5% Increased Falloff Distance, 10 Stability, 35 Handling, and 35 Reload Speed with 0.95x Duration Multiplier for 10 seconds.
  • Basic Trait #2: Multikill Clip – You can get up to 50% increased damage.
  • Basic Origin Trait: Dreamwork – Once per reload, assists or assisted final blows partially refill the weapon from reserves, potentially overflowing the magazine. This is a fixed perk. We don’t have a choice here.
  • Masterwork: Reload Speed – The Reload Speed on this HC is one of the worst I have seen.
  • Mod: Backup Map – To increase the Mag Size even further.

How to get Something New in Destiny 2

You can the Something New Hand Cannot from the Solstice of Heroes Bonfire Bash activity. It can drop randomly from completing defeating the final boss and grabbing the two legendary engrams, once you are done with the activity.
