Rocket Launchers have long been a formidable choice for DPS in Destiny 2. Among the various options available, the Apex Predator god roll from Last Wish stands out as the easiest top-tier choice. Craftable and capable of enhanced perks, this Rocket Launcher offers an efficient farming process. Though relying on RNG for red border weapons can be frustrating, the right roll on the Apex Predator can rival the best damage-dealing weapons in the game. In this guide, we will explore the optimal god rolls for the Destiny 2 Apex Predator.
The Finest God Rolls for Apex Predator in Destiny 2
The Apex Predator Rocket Launcher excels in PvE encounters, particularly when equipped with its optimal enhanced perks. While not as versatile or powerful in PvP, it can still be viable in Crucible matches if you lack a preferred PvP rocket launcher or wish to make the most of your efforts in obtaining the perfect Apex Predator god roll.
The Ultimate PvE Apex Predator God Roll
- Barrel: Quick Launch
- Magazine: Impact Casing
- Trait 1: Reconstruction
- Trait 2: Bait and Switch
With this PvE Apex Predator god roll, the rocket launcher offers the second and third-highest DPS rotations in Destiny 2. The only rocket launcher technically superior is the Cold Comfort from the Ghosts of the Deep Dungeon. However, acquiring the perfect Cold Comfort relies solely on RNG. It is not craftable, and while you can farm specific encounters for it, obtaining both Envious Assassin and Bait and Switch, along with the other three top-tier perks, is a matter of luck.
On the other hand, Apex is craftable, allowing you to guarantee Reconstruction, Bait and Switch, and the other desired perks and Masterwork. Though it comes with a slight decrease of around 40,000 total DPS, the relative ease of obtaining the Apex Predator compensates for it, making it a worthy choice.
The Preferred Apex Predator PvP God Roll
- Barrel: Quick Launch
- Magazine: Black Powder
- Trait 1: Tracking Module
- Trait 2: Explosive Light
Do not anticipate this weapon to dominate PvP, as it is outshined by almost every other Rocket Launcher in Destiny 2. If you intend to use a rocket launcher in PvP, I would recommend sticking with the legendary Gjallarhorn. However, if you remain steadfast in your desire to use Apex Predator, the above god roll can make it viable in specific situations. You will need to acquire both Power ammo and an Orb of Power to make it worthwhile. Yet, even in that scenario, it falls short compared to other options. Nonetheless, the inclusion of Tracking Module enhances the usability of this PvP Apex Predator god roll.
These represent the best Apex Predator god rolls in Destiny 2. Hunters wielding Radiant Dance Machines and Blade Barrage have the highest possible DPS in the game, closely followed by Warlocks. Unfortunately, Titans face slightly more limited options. Regardless, I hope this information proves helpful.
