Destiny 2 enthusiasts rejoice! The legendary machine gun, Commemoration, has become the talk of the town. With its recent resurgence and powerful perks, it has secured a spot as the third most popular machine gun in the Season of Defiance. In this article, we will explore the best ways to obtain multiple rolls of this coveted weapon and uncover its top perks. So, gear up and join us on this exciting journey.
How to Obtain Commemoration this Season
To acquire Commemoration, you must venture into the Deep Stone Crypt raid and defeat the formidable Taniks The Abomination. This raid-exclusive weapon can be obtained as a drop. If you’re having trouble securing your first drop, fear not! You can spend 60 Spoils of Conquest at the loot cache at the end of the raid for an additional chance to obtain this prized possession. Additionally, for the more resourceful guardians out there, Commemoration can be crafted. However, this method requires finding 5 Deepsight (red border) versions of the weapon.
The Power of Commemoration
Machine guns have received a well-deserved boost this season, with a 10% increase in damage and an enhancement to reserve ammo. These improvements synergize perfectly with Commemoration’s top perks, namely Reconstruction, Killing Tally, Rampage, and Dragonfly.
There’s a reason why Commemoration is the third most popular machine gun and fourth most popular weapon overall in the current PvE meta. The perk combination centered around Reconstruction is a force to be reckoned with. Pair Reconstruction in the third column with Killing Tally, Rampage, or Dragonfly, and you’ll have a deadly weapon capable of dealing massive boss damage or clearing hordes of enemies.
Commemoration is a must-have and can be considered an S-tier weapon for PvE, especially for endgame content.
While Commemoration reigns supreme, there are other noteworthy machine guns worth considering. Thunderlord, an exotic heavy machine gun from the Forsaken Pack, boasts formidable power and versatility, making it a solid choice for both PvE and PvP. Another alternative is Corrective Measure, a legendary heavy machine gun acquired from the Vault of Glass raid. This weapon’s adaptability and high damage potential make it a force to be reckoned with.
Best Commemoration Rolls for PvE and PvP
After acquiring enough Commemoration drops or resourcefully gathering Deepsight versions, it’s time to choose your favorite roll. Here are our recommendations for god rolls in PvE and PvP:
Commemoration PvE God Roll
To maximize potential DPS and mob clearing, it’s crucial to manage Commemoration’s high recoil. Selecting Arrowhead Brake as the barrel of choice will help mitigate this issue. For the magazine, Tactical Mag or Extended Mag are excellent options to enhance reload speed.
The holy grail of PvE rolls is Reconstruction as the first perk. This perk significantly increases your magazine capacity, allowing you to rain down relentless damage or clear mobs without reloading. Pair Reconstruction with Killing Tally for the ultimate combination. With no need for frequent reloads, Reconstruction lets you accumulate kills effortlessly, while Killing Tally significantly boosts your damage output.
- Barrel: Arrowhead Brake
- Magazine: Accurized Rounds or Extended Mag
- Perk 1: Reconstruction
- Perk 2: Killing Tally (also good: Rampage)
- Masterwork: Reload
Commemoration PvP God Roll
In the Crucible, heavy ammo is a precious resource that can turn the tide of a match. Since you’ll be firing with a partially filled magazine and no need to reload, prioritize range-enhancing barrels such as Smallbore, Corkscrew Rifling, or Full Bore. Opt for Accurized Rounds for maximum range extension.
For the third column, Surplus and Dynamic Sway Reduction provide a general boost to stats. In the final column, choose Under Pressure as the perk, as its accuracy bonus will be systematically triggered due to the partially filled magazine.
- Barrel: Smallbore
- Magazine: Projection Fuse or Particle Repeater
- Perk 1: Surplus or Dynamic Sway Reduction
- Perk 2: Under Pressure or Eye of the Storm
- Masterwork: Range or Handling
Is It Worth Farming Commemoration?
Without a doubt, Commemoration is the best legendary option for machine guns this season. While there are numerous great combinations for PvE, the Reconstruction and Killing Tally pairing is the ultimate god roll that every guardian should strive for.
Good news awaits those who seek to expand their arsenal. Commemoration is craftable, and upcoming changes will allow players to apply Deepsight to their weapons. So even if you don’t acquire the recommended god rolls mentioned here, it is a perfect time to stock up on additional rolls. Prepare yourself, for you and Taniks are about to become well-acquainted.
