These two Destiny 2 Doom of Chelchis god rolls are pretty great. King’s Fall came back to Destiny 2 with a ton of new, top-tier weapons – and this is one of them. While Doom of Chelchis is definitely more of a PvE weapon than a PvP one, it can perform incredibly well in both activities – as these god rolls highlight.

While I would still craft a Zaouli’s Bane first, Doom of Chelchis would be a close second for what to prioritize from the raid. You might disagree, though, which would be perfectly understandable if these two god rolls are anything to go by.

There are a handful of really powerful and interesting perk combinations that can make up a Doom of Chelchis god roll. However, the ones I’ve opted for are Explosive Payload and Dragonfly.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, the Firefly/Dragonfly combination is right there. As tempting as that roll may be, it’s not all that good. Both perks do the same thing, so what’s the point in having both beyond the novelty value? Nothing – there’s no point, and Explosive Payload is better, anyway.

Before that, though, we’ve got to quickly touch on the barrel and ammo perks. Of course, I’m opting for Arrowhead Break as I do on any roll where range isn’t important. Arrowhead is just the flat-out best barrel overall. It’s a simple buff to handling and recoil direction – both of which make a big difference to how a weapon feels and plays. If I’m putting together something like a hand cannon or shotgun, then a different barrel is warranted. For a scout, though, there’s no better option.

Accurized Rounds is by far the most popular column two perk on Doom of Chelchis god rolls, but I don’t think you need it with Explosive Payload. Explosive eliminates the need for range and by extension, Accurized Rounds. Instead, I’m running Tactical Mag for the increased reload speed and stability, but you could realistically run whatever you want here.

Now, let’s talk Explosive Payload. This perk is one of the best in the entire game. While it excels on hand cannons, it’s always been a go-to perk for scout rifles, as well. It gives your weapon effectively infinite range, a nice damage buff, as well as the ability to deal splash damage.

Sure, there are other great perks here like Firefly, Vorpal, and Adaptive Munitions – all of which could go into a Doom of Chelchis god roll. In fact, with Season 18 having Anti-Barrier Scout, it might be worth your while to run an Adaptive Munitions/Dragonfly roll. However, future-proofing this weapon requires Explosive Payload as it’s simply a better overall perk.

Doom of Chelchis’ column four is significantly less packed than column three, but there are still great options like Frenzy, One For All (which works great with Explosive Payload), and my choice of perk, Dragonfly.

Dragonfly causes enemies to explode on precision kill. These explosions are often enough to take out an entire wave of ADs if they spawn together, so this is always an S-tier PvE perk. It works great with Explosive Payload, too, as the effects don’t overlap.

There are plenty of great Doom of Chelchis god rolls, so don’t be afraid to experiment. This weapon has all the potential in the world.

  • Tactical Mag
  • Explosive Payload
  • Focused Fury

I agonized over this Doom of Chelchis PvP god roll. Honestly, there’s an argument to be made for keeping the Explosive Payload/Dragonfly combo, but I decided to make one change for change’s sake. Feel free to follow my recommendation, or not.

It’s clear that Doom of Chelchis is designed to be a PvE powerhouse rather than a PvP one. All the same, the weapon can put up a world-class performance in both activities. With that in mind, I’m opting to keep both Arrowhead Break and Tactical Mag from my PvE god roll.

Both of these perks are simply best in class regardless of what activity you’re running, although you can replace Tactical Mag for a lower magazine count to synergize with Focused Fury. Beyond that, there’s no reason to swap them out, as is the case with Explosive Payload in PvP.

In PvE, I think there are plenty of good replacements for Explosive Payload if you want to run something else. In PvP, however, I think it’s the best column three perk by a longshot. The added damage, range, and flinch that the perk gives is often the difference maker in gunfights, so I wouldn’t replace it with anything.

Dragonfly isn’t the best PvP perk due to its limited range and activation requirement, so that’s the perk I opted to replace between rolls. I choose to go with Focused Fury, instead, which isn’t a perk I typically take into… well, anything.

With it, hitting 50% of our magazine as precision hits will give us a 20% damage buff for 11 seconds. In PvP, that’s actually quite an achievable task with a scout rifle, provided you don’t Call of Duty reload after every kill.

You should find Focused Fury being active a surprisingly large amount of the time. If you don’t, feel free to replace it with something that suits your playstyle more.

While it’s obvious that Doom of Chelchis is a PvE primary, it can definitely do work in the Crucible, so grab one for yourself and try it out.
