The new Season of the Seraph in Destiny 2 has been rolling on in a great manner and the new weapons have certainly played their part. There are a lot of superb options to choose from with the Retrofit Escapade legendary machine gun is a favorite of most players.
There is a lot to be excited about regarding this, especially in the god rolls department which is formidable across PvP and PvE combat. Additionally, Retrofit Escapade is extremely useful while clearing out bosses in various encounters and that is why the following guide will help players in acquiring the Retrofit Escapade and using its best god rolls across the game.
Destiny 2: How to get the Retrofit Escapade machine gun
Retrofit Escapade is a Rapid-Fire Frame weapon that can be gotten by unlocking the Heisted Deepsight upgrade which is present within the ‘Efficiency Upgrades’ section. After you have completed this, simply collect the red-bordered copy of the machine gun from the first Seraph chest that drops every week.
Once you reach the Exo vendor’s inventory, you will have to focus on Umbral Engram, 30 Seraphic Umbral Energy, and 50 Legendary Shards in order to get your hands on the Retrofit Escapade.
Here are the base stats of the weapon:
- Magazine: 77
- Recoil: 55
- Stability: 44
- Impact: 25
- Inventory: 29
- Handling: 56
- Range: 23
- Rounds Per Minute: 900
- Reload Speed: 4.69s
There are two Basic Origin Traits to choose from including the newly introduced Ambush which increases range, the damage inflicted, and handling when a battle begins, and Suros Synergy which increases handling and reduces flinch for a while after reloading.
Destiny 2 – Retrofit Escapade God Rolls
First of all, we will take a look at the god roll perks for The machine gun for PvP:
These are the main perks you should look for if you are going for a more Player Versus Player build for the weapon:
- Barrel: Arrowhead Brake
- Magazine: Accurized Rounds
- First perk: Heating Up
- Second perk: Tap The Trigger
Arrowhead Brake massively controls Recoil (+30) and betters Handling (+10) with Accurized Rounds increasing Range (+10). When it comes to the third column, the best way to go would be Heating Up which improves stability and accuracy during final hits alongside bettering vertical recoil. Tap The Trigger allows you to gain more stability and accuracy for some time during the pulling of the trigger in the beginning.
Now Let us take a look at the god roll perks for Retrofit Escapade for PvE, which I think will be the main focus for a lot of players. Especially with the new Gyrfalcon build for Hunter:
- Barrel: Arrowhead Brake
- Magazine: Appended Mag
- First perk: Fourth Time’s The Charm
- Second perk: Target Lock
For the barrel, we are sticking with Arrowhead Brake as it is the standout choice for both PvP and PvE situations. When it comes to the magazine to go with it, players can opt for which greatly enhances the size of the magazine (+14).
The third column is for Fourth Time’s The Charm which gives back two rounds to you if you quickly hit precision strikes within two seconds. Finally, the final perk of Target Lock betters the damage inflicted the longer you keep your weapon focused on the opponents.
Thus, that is all the information players will need when it comes to the Retrofit Escapade and its god rolls for PvP and PvE. It is a great choice for both those scenarios, meaning you have the chance to make decent progress simultaneously which should be a good sign of things for players across the board.
