Destiny 2 PvE Build: Gunslinger Hunter – The Golden Reaper

This September, with the release of Shadowkeep, Destiny 2 is readied to give the gamers a little extra ability to craft their “& ldquo; beast murder makers.”

& rdquo; Bungie is taking the actions to make Guardians more personalized; they’& rsquo; re bringing even more statistics back into the video game as well as sprucing up the means shield functions. In short, we’& rsquo; ll start to see gamers have more freedom when it concerns producing builds.

Obviously, with the re-addition of random rolls as well as armor advantages and also mods last September with Forsaken, you can currently produce some builds. You’& rsquo; re totally reliant on RNG, and will likely wind up being a complete mash-up of different armor sets, but you can produce a little synergy.

As we prepare for the much more hardcore friendly, RPG oriented variation of Destiny 2 with Season 8 as well as Shadowkeep, we’& rsquo; re mosting likely to begin doing some develop write-ups as a heat up wherefore’& rsquo; s to come

. I major a Seeker, in both PvE and also PvP, therefore our very first develop is for the Seeker as well as is a PvE develop focused around the Means of the Sharpshooter Gunslinger. I call it The Golden Reaping machine.

This is a hostile develop centered around three things; 1.) eliminating enemies really quickly up-close, 2.) developing orbs of light, and also 3.) getting Golden Weapon extremely fast.

Seeker Gunslinger

  • CLASS CAPABILITY: Marksman’& rsquo; s Dodge– Evading instantly reloads your weapon.
    • We’& rsquo; ll talk about why we’& rsquo; re using this over Casino player & rsquo; s Dodge later on in the build guide.
  • ACTIVITY MODE: Three-way Jump
    • This dive is individual preference for PvE, doesn’& rsquo; t effect the construct. Strafe Dive is additionally really great.
  • EXPLOSIVE: Incendiary Explosive
    • This is the strongest choice Gunslingers have for PvE, beyond particular niche use of Tripmine with a completely various arrangement.


This is the lower skill-tree.

This tree does four things:

  1. Practice Makes Perfect: Each accuracy struck lowers the cooldown of Golden Weapon. Heaps to 5x. Blade Juggler eliminates give Super energy.
  2. Blade Juggler: Precision eliminates with the Throwing Blade immediately reenergize it.
  3. Crowd-Pleaser: Allows precision damages with Golden Gun. Precision strikes with Golden Weapon produce Orbs of Light.
  4. Line ‘& lsquo; Em Up: Accuracy strikes with Golden Gun boost its damage as well as extend its duration.

The initial 2 items straighten with our third program with the build; obtaining Golden Weapon actually quick. The objective is bounce between minor adversaries obtaining accuracy hits as well as eliminates with our primary weapon, as well as getting the orbs we create from it. Throwing Blade isn’& rsquo; t the celebrity of the build, yet is really reliable against the weak minor adversaries of the Fallen, Hive, and also Cabal.

The third product doesn’& rsquo; t do a lot for solo play, but in a group setting just striking 3 precision shots will certainly create 6 Orbs for your teammates.

Weapon Loadout

This weapon loadout is one of the best loadouts in the video game, as well as is totally available. Mountaintop and also Hermit are excellent, yet the majority of the playerbase put on’& rsquo; t have those weapons since they wear’& rsquo; t play Compensation to obtain them. We have actually two locked weapons in this develop, as well as one that you’& rsquo; re totally free to replace

. Our primary of option is the Huckleberry.

Huckleberry is an unique kinetic SMG.

  • Ride The Bull –– Boosted Price of Fire as well as recoil while you’& rsquo; re holding back the trigger. Eliminates with this weapon refilled a portion of the publication.
  • Fluted Barrel
  • Ricochet Rounds
  • Rampage –– Eliminates with this weapon briefly grant boosted damages. Heaps 3x.
  • Short-Action Supply

Huckleberry is extremely simple to make use of; it’& rsquo; s steady and also the recoil is relatively very easy to take care of also on console.

You will absolutely shred adversaries with the Huckleberry, and Rampage simply additionally elevates it. Trip the Bull as well as Rampage go together very well.

Below’& rsquo; s the thing. For this construct, as well as the hostile play-style, you need to have it Masterworked. The driver makes it to ensure that kills with tool reload the whole publication. You’& rsquo; re likewise producing a lots of Orbs as a result of how fast you’& rsquo; re slaying adversaries

. Reloading a section of the publication behaves, however at some point you’& rsquo; re mosting likely to need to reload. Reload speed right here by hand is pretty sluggish. You can reduce this some by using Marksman’& rsquo; s Dodge, but really you want the Stimulant.

If you wear’& rsquo; t have the Catalyst, or wear’& rsquo; t look after the SMG aggressive playstyle, our alternative below is the unique hand cannon Crimson.

Crimson is a horribly underrated weapon, in my viewpoint. It’& rsquo; s not bad in PvP, though it might make use of a minor aficionado to bring the TTK down a little, but in PvE it is superb of what we’& rsquo; re wanting to do below: eliminate red bar adversaries quick with precision kills.

  • Banned Tool –– Fires a 3-round ruptured.
  • Smallbore
  • Accurized Beats
  • Cruel Treatment –– Eliminates with this tool recover the wielder. Precision eliminates likewise fill up the magazine.
  • Hefty Grasp

Masterwork not called for, however it does provide a nice array increase to virtually max the range.

Crimson feels terrific. It’& rsquo; s incredibly stable, can be used up as well as close and also at tool range, as well as is just one of the less complicated hand cannons on console to constantly land fast duplicated crit shots with.

By getting those accuracy kills you’& rsquo; re staying clear of having to refill, recovery yourself, and if you have it Masterworked are generating a lot of Orbs rapidly. This goes flawlessly with Technique Makes Perfect and also our objective of obtaining our very extremely quickly.

Not going to cover it like the above two alternatives, but our last substitute here (moreso when you get to a boss in a strike, raid, or Primeval in Gambit) is the unique pulse rifle Episode Perfected.

Our special weapon (or power tool) for this develop is Loaded Question.

This legendary blend rifle was the Vanguard pinnacle weapon throughout the Period of the Forge. If you didn’& rsquo; t obtain it after that, you can naturally still acquire it by finishing the mission bounty from Zavala.

It is a little bit of a work to get, yet as the most effective unique tool in the ready PvE, it is well worth it. You have to obtain 500 eliminates with a fusion rifle in strikes or Nightfall. 1000 Arc eliminates in strikes or Nightfalls. And also lastly, complete 40 strikes or Nightfalls.

  • High Influence Structure –– This slow-firing, high-damage archetype of combination obtained a 30% damages buff this period.
  • Red Dot 2 MOA
  • Ionized Battery
  • Auto-Loading Holster –– Holstered weapon is immediately reloaded after a brief amount of time.
  • Storage tank Burst –– When the battery is full, your next ruptured deals added damages and also causes adversaries to blow up on fatality.
  • Stability Masterwork

For this, I recommend rocking a Major Spec mod.

This weapon obtained a lot of hate when it was introduced since it’& rsquo; s main perk methods you need to have 7 in the magazine. If you put on’& rsquo; t have seven shots in the mag, you don & rsquo; t reach take advantage of Tank Ruptured with its damage increase and Firefly like explosion that evaporates close-by adversaries.

Right here’& rsquo; s the thing, Loaded Question has actually always been amazing in PvE. Only currently,’it & rsquo; s even better. It & rsquo; s precisely what a peak tool should be, an unique

feeling legendary. For this develop, we & rsquo; re counting on trimming via small enemies easily as well as quickness with our Huckleberry or Crimson. Filled Concern is what we breakout when there’& rsquo; s a group of enemies together, or a major. If it & rsquo; s a significant bordered by red bars, even better. Reservoir Burst with Major Specification is going to wipe out a Significant adversary like it was nothing. One shot dead. If it’& rsquo; s somehow still alive, you can complete it by pleasing it with your main.

Multikills with the Storage tank Ruptured shot will certainly create an Orb, so it’& rsquo; s a very easy means to obtain a group of enemies with round and produce an Orb.

Filled Question is utilized for that function only. It’& rsquo; s not a primary’weapon, we & rsquo; re not running as well as gunning with it. Use it when needed, holster it and afterwards Reservoir Ruptured will automatically be up when you require to use it once more. Primary –– Filled Concern shot –– Key. If there’& rsquo; s two majors there, then you can definitely obtain Storage tank Burst back up rapidly by evading.

While our key usage of the gun is killing majors and also organized up redbars, Loaded Question is also wonderful against employers. If you’& rsquo; re in a team task, state with a Warlock rocking Well of Luster as well as Lunafactions, then Filled Question virtually ends up being a heavy tool.

Finally, our heavy of option is the best famous heavy in the ready employer damage, the grenade launcher Wendigo GL3.

Wendigo is the current (Season of Luxury) Lead pinnacle weapon. It’& rsquo; s a work that & rsquo; s mosting likely to take at a minimal 3 or 4 hrs of tiresome farming. You require to obtain 1500 kills with an Explosive Launcher in brave strikes, 500 grenade launcher multkills in heroic strikes, and ultimately gain factors from eliminating enemies in brave strikes. Kills with explosive launchers count much more, death impedes development. This is like 3400 kills, assuming you’& rsquo; re making use of a grenade

launcher. Your best bet to farm it is to share a group, or set your date back on PS4 to solo, and also hit up a lost market and just start eliminating points with Battling Lion.

It’& rsquo; s a lengthy grind, it’& rsquo; s tedious, and also it & rsquo; s rather tiring if you do it the farming course by means of shed fields (although Battling Lion is simply a lots of fun to use), but it is significantly worth it. This is the hefty tool that you want to pump out majorly employer damage.

  • Flexible Structure
  • Smart Drift Control
  • Blinding Explosives
  • Auto-Loading Holster –– Holstered weapon is immediately reloaded after a short period of time.
  • Eruptive Light –– Getting an Orb of Light boosts the following explosive’& rsquo; s blast distance and also damage.
  • Velocity Masterwork

Certainly opt for a Manager Spec mod.

In this develop, Wendigo is actually what we’& rsquo; re conserving ammunition for employer damages. It’& rsquo; s not seeing a great deal of use, unless Heavyweight is a modifier or you’& rsquo; re obtaining great hefty drops.

If you’& rsquo; re in task with major wizards, knights, captains, or any kind of aggravating adversary that can produce a lot of damages, then feel free to let loose the Wendigo. You’& rsquo; re mosting likely to be gathering Orbs, which implies you can have up to 6 Explosive Light charged shots, so if you wear’& rsquo; t eliminate them then at least you reduce them with the blinding grenades (which are excellent). It’& rsquo; s great in EP, Recknoning, the

Menagerie, and so on. We want to make sure that we have the ammunition for employers though, because Filled Question actually is our major clearing up maker. If you do make use of Wendigo to obtain a team of majors or whatever, after that it additionally benefits from the auto-loading holster characteristic. We’& rsquo; re maximizing our uptime below by never ever needing to refill anything by hand.

Huckleberry or Crimson, with Packed Question, guarantees us a steady stream of Orbs of Light to feed Wendigo and also our class item.

Shield Loadout

You have more freedom with armor than you make with the tools, however these are the rewards I utilize and suggest to aid make this develop far better and also extra efficient. RNG implies it’& rsquo; s not refined though.

I put on’& rsquo; t put much stock into wheelchair, resistance, and also healing. I will claim, for this develop, recuperation can be absolutely no. It’& rsquo; s not a problem whatsoever. We’& rsquo; re moving fast and also producing orbs’, which & rsquo; s all we require. If you & rsquo; re using the Crimson variant, after that all you need is a kill to recuperate.

Easy. Helmet Light

  • Activator –– Gain benefit Super power on Fusion Rifle eliminates
  • Fusion Rifle Reserves –– Increases the quantity of Blend Rifle ammunition you can lug.

The entire lots out is truly developed around Loaded Question. The primary is what we’& rsquo; re using to slaughter the minors rapidly, however make no mistake the star of the program is Filled Inquiry. It’& rsquo; s what & rsquo; s killing teams and also the big kids and also protected enemies. It’& rsquo; s putting in work.

With Light Reactor, you’& rsquo; re obtaining extra Very power for killing with Filled Question, which feeds right into getting our Golden Gun quick.

You’& rsquo; ll see Fusion Rifle Reserves once more, and with these we can lug 22 ammo for Loaded Inquiry. That’& rsquo; s a dreadful lot of Storage tank Burst.

Masterwork isn’& rsquo; t so vital, mine is Solar. Rock a Super mod.


This is where RNG hasn’& rsquo; t blessed me.

Because I wanted Solar and Heavy Ammunition finder, I’& rsquo; m stuck utilizing onslaughts with Hand Cannon loader as well as Heavy Ammunition finder (or Blend Scavenger).

I’& rsquo;d want Heater, Impact Induction, or Momentum Transfer here with Heavy Ammunition finder. Loaders do nothing for us, as we shouldn’& rsquo; t be manually reloading anyhow (unless it’& rsquo; s boss damages time).

Once again, I have Solar masterwork as well as I’& rsquo; m making use of an Apotheosis mod here

. Upper body Chest items are currently among the more ineffective pieces of armor, perkwise, but I’& rsquo; m rocking the complying with which suffices:

  • Unflinching Power Objective
  • SMG Reserves

Solar and a Super Mod.


For the boots, I directly suggest the ST0MP-EE5 exotics.

They are an all over outstanding option, as the Hydraulic Boosters buff sprint speed, slide distance, and also jumping height. As this is an aggressive focused construct, sliding and also entering as well as out of teams of opponents and also running quickly is extremely important.

Mine has Blend Rifle Dexterity and also Special Ammunition Finder, which is ideal for this develop. I’& rsquo;d personally instead have Traction than the Dexterity, however that’& rsquo; s great to for Loaded Question also if it isn’& rsquo; t Improved.

Super Mod.


The cloak is an essential piece of gear.

This the god roll for this develop, and also what I make use of:

  • Healing –– Replenish health and wellness each time you get an Orb of Light.
  • Combination Rifle Reserves

With our weapon loadout of all Masterworked slaying machines, we’& rsquo; re producing a lots of orbs. Wendigo permits you to get orbs also when your super is full. Healing indicates that we constantly have a recovery source, despite very condition, and also is the reason why we put on’& rsquo; t need to care one bit about the Healing stat.

The books once again assist us get the 22 shots for Loaded Question.

This develop, with everything interacting (the accuracy shots procing Technique Makes Perfect, getting Orbs, Light Activator, the Super mods, and also simply killing things swiftly) suggests we can get our Super in much less than 50 secs from absolutely no extremely energy. You can utilize your very, and supplied there’& rsquo; s sufficient adversaries around and also you’& rsquo; re quick at killing and also collecting your orbs, have it back in much less than a minute.

And that’& rsquo; s why it & rsquo; s the Golden Reaper. You & rsquo; re reaping adversaries really quick as well as you have access to Golden Gun really quickly.

When Destiny 2 introduced in 2017, you couldn’& rsquo; t also obtain your grenade back in the quantity of time you can get your super back with this develop.

Here’& rsquo; s a fast video clip showing how quick you can get your very back. And this was just everyone’& rsquo; s preferred lost market to check things in, and also it wasn’& rsquo; t a best outing by any means (missed picking up some orbs, obtained flinched out of some accuracy shots, and was at times sluggish). Yet however, 48 secs from Golden Weapon to Golden Weapon.

< I assume this is probably the greatest integrate in the ready Gunslinger’& rsquo; s in PvE. It & rsquo; s terrific in basically every task; strikes, patrol, EP, forges, reckoning, Menagerie, raids, and also Gambit (as a slayer, it’& rsquo; s not set approximately attack or actually also handle an invader unless you can get up close).

If you’& rsquo; re on a raid boss, or the Primeval, just switch out Huckleberry or Crimson for Break Out Perfected if you have it.
