This Fantastic Destiny 2 Gun Has A PvP God Roll And Is Very Easy To Get

Become the bane of pulse and scout rifle users with the spooky Braytech Werewolf auto rifle.


Some of the best weapons in Destiny 2 for PvP, the fabled god rolls, aren't the easiest to acquire, but right now there's a superb auto rifle that you can instantly add to your collection. Braytech Werewolf is a classic weapon that usually drops as a reward during Destiny 2's Festival of the Lost Halloween event, and if you have it in your collection, you can reacquire it with some excellent curated perks.

What makes this auto rifle so deadly in PvP is Zen Moment, as causing damage with this weapon reduces recoil and flinch over time. Combined with its excellent range, and as tested by True Vanguard, Braytech Werewolf becomes a medium to long-distance monster that can invade a territory usually dominated by pulse and scout rifles.

Its rapid-fire frame and stability allow it to fire off a series of rounds that can shred through enemies, and for the low price to grab it from your collection, it's an absolute steal. A god roll of an auto rifle, that you won't need to grind through Trials of Osiris or Iron Banner to acquire.

For anyone who prefers a more up close and personal option, The Immortal is another sought-after weapon that is considered to have a god roll if it includes Target Lock in its perks. That submachine gun requires working your way through the Trials of Osiris ranks, and isn't as easily obtainable as Braytech Werewolf. If you don't have the funky auto rifle, you'll probably need to wait until Festival of the Lost in October to get your hands on it.

Destiny 2's mid-season update will see some interesting buffs applied to auto rifles and several other weapon archetypes. In PvE, auto rifles will do 25% more damage against red and orange-bar enemies, and you can expect damage buffs for pulse rifles, hand cannons, sidearms, and scout rifles as well. Since the launch of Lightfall, Bungie has continued to fine-tune the Destiny sandbox and recent tweaks have seen Commendations requirements for Guardian Ranks lowered, a tougher Nezarec for the Root of Nightmares raid, and better storytelling outside of the disappointing main campaign.
