These two Destiny 2 Firefright god rolls have been crafted by me to try and make the most of what is a pretty underwhelming weapon. Season of the Haunted had some serious belters. The Calus Mini-Tool might just be the best legendary weapon that Destiny has ever seen – between both games. Unfortunately, that means that some guns need to underperform to help balance that out. Firefright is one of those weapons.

As an auto rifle, these Firefright god rolls are already fighting uphill battles for META relevancy. Still, I’ve managed to put together a passable PvE god roll, and a PvP god roll that I wouldn’t recommend, but is the best that Firefright has to offer.

If you’re looking for a way to make one of Destiny 2’s weaker auto rifles viable, then look no further. Here are my two Destiny 2 Firefright god rolls for PvE and PvP.

Destiny 2 Firefright God Rolls

  • Fourth Time’s the Charm
  • Osmosis

The Firefright god roll I’ve put together for PvE is actually one of the better PvE auto rifles you can run. It makes use of Osmosis – which I consider to be an S-tier perk for auto rifles in PvE. One of my favorite ARs of this nature is a Last Breath with Demolitionist and Osmosis. This roll isn’t as powerful as that, but it comes close.

Arrowhead Break is sort of an unimportant choice on auto rifle (AR) god rolls. Unlike hand cannons and shotguns where the barrel makes a difference, it doesn’t matter too much here. That being said, Arrowhead gives us some chunky handling and a nice increase to our recoil direction – making this Firefright god roll a little easier to control overall.

When it comes to perk two on ARs, you’re generally looking at something like Ricochet or High-Caliber Rounds. Armor-Piercing Rounds are included in that S-tier ammo category, but it’s vastly superior on this roll compared to its aforementioned alternatives.

Rather than just using ammo for some more range or stagger potential, Armor-Piercing Rounds will make it much easier for you to take down an enemy’s shield. Given that we’re running Osmosis on this god roll, you’ll be hitting shields with this weapon a lot more than you normally would with a Kinetic weapon – exponentially increasing the value of Armor-Piercing.

Lastly, we have the combination of Fourth Time’s the Charm and Osmosis. Fourth Time’s will always be a top-tier pick on most PvE god roll weapons. In PvE, weapon uptime is everything – so anything increasing that uptime is a godsend. With a mag of 34, Firefright works particularly well with the perk compared to some other, smaller-capacity weapons. Throw Osmosis on top of that (which changes your Firefright from being Kinetic to the element of your subclass when you throw a grenade), and you’ve got a surprisingly effective PvE god roll capable of taking down targets even in high-end activities.

Firefright PvP God Roll

  • Adagio

I’m going to level with you – This Firefright god roll sucks. It’s not that my perk choice sucks – it’s that it all does. At least, it does for PvP.

Auto rifles are already in a terrible spot for the PvP META, so Firefright is already at a disadvantage. When you also factor in the gun’s horrid PvP perk pool, you end up with a weapon you should never be taking into the Crucible.

All the same, I’ve tried my best to get this Firefright god roll to a passable state, starting with the same combination of Arrowhead Break and Armor-Piercing Rounds. As stated previously, Arrowhead is always a great choice here. Armor-Piercing isn’t as valuable on this god roll as it is on its PvE sibling, but it does add some nice impact and stagger in PvP. Swap it out for High-Caliber if you see fit, though.

The meat of this god roll is Threat Detector/Adagio which, ironically, is this weapon’s curated roll. They’re honestly not great PvP perks, but they’re the best we can do given the options.

Threat Detector will increase your handling and stability, and reload when you’re near enemies. This isn’t great, given that you don’t want to take close-range gunfights with an AR. However, it is the best PvP perk available to us in column three, so it’s what we’re taking.

Adagio, on the other hand, is actually pretty decent. Not incredible – just decent. Whenever you kill an enemy with this Firefright god roll, Adagio will proc. This reduces your fire rate by 20% for seven seconds but gives you 30% more damage for that duration. This can make a big difference in team fights or trials, where being able to trade two for one can be the difference between winning and losing a game.

Still, I wouldn’t recommend you go taking this into the Crucible anytime soon. I would, however, recommend you give it a shot in PvE. I’m biased towards Osmosis, but I genuinely believe it’s one of the most slept-on perks in the entire game. Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
