Destiny 2 Osteo Striga has become immensely popular since its introduction in the Witch Queen expansion about a year ago. This remarkable exotic SMG can hold its own in both PvP and PvE activities. However, what sets it apart from other exotic weapons is its ability to have its perk rolls customized and crafted at the Enclave on Mars. In this article, we will discuss how to obtain the best roll for Destiny 2 Osteo Striga in both PvP and PvE, as well as the process of acquiring the weapon for new players.

- Weapon Type: Exotic Kinetic SMG
- Impact: 25
- Range: 80
- Stability: 37
- Handling: 26
- Reload Speed: 18
- Aim Assistance: 55
- Inventory Size: 30
- Zoom: 13
- Airborne Effectiveness: 27
To begin, let’s explore the intrinsic perk and traits associated with the Osteo Striga SMG, as well as its unique exotic catalyst:
- Screaming Swarm: This perk allows the weapon to fire a stream of sentient, toxic projectiles that track the targeted enemy.
- Toxic Overload: Landing a final blow or multiple precision hits triggers a burst that poisons nearby targets.
- Exotic Catalyst: Poison final blows replenish ammo in the magazine and provide increased reload speed and stability stats to the weapon.
Initially, when the Witch Queen expansion was released, players who owned the deluxe edition of the DLC instantly obtained the Osteo Striga. However, without the deluxe access, you will need to complete the main campaign of the Witch Queen to unlock the ability to craft the Osteo Striga at the Enclave on Mars.
Moving forward, to craft your first Osteo Striga at Level 1, you will require the following crafting materials and resources:
- 15,000 Glimmer
- 2,375 Resonant Elements
- 7 Resonant Alloy
- 1 Ascendant Alloy
It’s important to note that you won’t be able to immediately craft the best roll for the Osteo Striga, as certain rolls will be initially locked. To unlock and access these rolls, you will need to level up the weapon at specific thresholds. Additionally, the exotic catalyst will also need to be unlocked by grinding the Osteo Striga to Level 10.
Best PvE Roll

In my personal experience, the Osteo Striga performs exceptionally well in PvE activities such as strikes, Dares of Eternity, and even endgame content like the recent Root of Nightmares raid. It is not only effective for clearing ads but also enjoyable to use with any subclass.
Here are my hand-picked PvE god roll perks for the Osteo Striga:
- Fluted Barrel or Ultra-light Barrel: These barrels greatly increase handling speed and slightly enhance stability.
- Smallbore or Dual Strength Barrel: These barrels increase range and stability.
- Flared Magwell: Optimized for fast reloading, it greatly increases reload speed and slightly improves stability.
- Short-Action Stock: This stock greatly increases handling speed, making weapon swapping smoother.
Best PvP Roll

The Osteo Striga reigns supreme in PvP encounters, thanks to its unique tracking bullets with poison effects. It is one of the top kinetic exotic weapons to wield against Guardians in casual matches, ranked play, and even Trials of Osiris. Fine-tuning the weapon specifically for PvP is not necessary, but if you want to maximize your stats:
- Polygonal Rifling: This barrel is optimized for recoil reduction, increasing stability.
- Accurized Rounds: This magazine allows the weapon to fire at longer distances, increasing range.
- Hand-Laid Stock: This stock optimizes recoil control, further enhancing stability.
That concludes our guide. While Destiny 2 Lightfall may not have left players with the same satisfaction as Witch Queen, Bungie aims to address the concerns in the ultimate expansion of the Light vs Darkness saga, The Final Shape. We eagerly await a resolution to the controversial ending of Lightfall. If you enjoyed reading this article, you may also find our PVE weapon Tier List for Destiny 2 intriguing.
