Trust, the beloved hand cannon from the Forsaken era, returns with Season of the Defiance in Destiny 2. As a 180 RPM Precision Frame Hand Cannon, Trust offers a plethora of unique rolls within its archetype. While retaining its iconic gun model and nostalgic sound effects, Trust also incorporates the latest perks in the game.
How to Acquire Trust in Season 20
Currently, Trust can be obtained as a random drop from completing Gambit matches. It is not yet available in the Drifter’s inventory for direct acquisition using Gambit Engrams. To enhance your chances of obtaining Trust, equip the Prosperity (Gambit) Ghost Mod while playing Gambit for increased post-game loot drops.
Evaluating Trust’s Performance
In the present PvE and PvP landscapes, 180 RPM Hand Cannons find themselves in a somewhat challenging position. While they provide a snappy and enjoyable experience, they lack the power needed to become the meta. Trust, however, contributes to breaking this mold with its exceptional perk combinations. A well-rolled Trust deserves a spot in any Guardian’s inventory, whether in PvE or PvP scenarios.

Optimal Trust Rolls for PvE and PvP
Trust showcases a unique set of perks that make certain rolls exceptionally valuable for both PvE and PvP engagements. Although 180 Hand Cannons may face some challenges, skilled Guardians can still derive immense enjoyment from wielding them.
Trust PvP God Roll
To extract the best performance from Trust in PvP scenarios, pushing its boundaries is essential. Opt for Hammer-Forged Rifling to gain a +10 Range boost, paired with Accurized Rounds for an additional +10 Range, thereby enhancing your engagements. Opening Shot in the third column ensures that you possess an advantage from the outset, allowing you to focus on landing precise headshots. While Rapid Hit and Snapshot are viable alternatives, Opening Shot reigns supreme in this archetype due to the initial advantage it provides. When it comes to the fourth column, Explosive Payload surpasses other options with its additional damage on hits and the fact that 50 percent of said extra damage does not suffer any falloff. This combination elevates Trust’s Range even further while adding extra impact. The resulting flinch caused by this perk combination makes it more difficult for opponents to hit you and allows your shots with Trust to pack a harder punch.
- Barrel: Hammer-Forged Rifling
- Magazine: Accurized Rounds
- Perk 1: Opening Shot
- Perk 2: Explosive Payload
Trust PvE God Roll
In PvE activities, Trust offers intriguing rolls worth considering. Opt for Smallbore as the barrel choice, which provides a +7 boost to both Range and Stability. Arrowhead Break or Corkscrew Rifling also serve as suitable alternatives for PvE engagements. Increase the Magazine size by using Appended Mag, which pairs well with the Incandescent or Frenzy perks. Rapid Hit synergizes with slots two, three, and four, granting more ammo, faster reloads, and Stability bonuses upon landing headshots. Complete this roll with Incandescent, which causes explosions and applies Scorch to nearby enemies. This combination perfectly complements a Solar subclass set based on Scorch and Ignite.
While other perk combinations, such as Frenzy, Golden Tricorn, and Adrenaline Junkie, offer damage boosts and can find their place, Incandescent emerges as the winner due to its effectiveness in clearing groups of enemies simultaneously.
- Barrel: Smallbore
- Magazine: Appended Mag
- Perk 1: Rapid Hit
- Perk 2: Incandescent
Is Trust Worth It?
Trust not only boasts an appealing appearance and captivating sound but also allows Guardians to wield its power while carrying out heroic deeds in the name of the Traveler. Although it may not currently be the ultimate choice, Trust can hold its ground in lower and mid-level content, such as the Strike playlist or lower-tier Nightfalls. Additionally, in skilled hands, Trust can inflict significant damage in PvP encounters. If you have a penchant for impressive Hand Cannons, acquiring a well-rolled Trust is a must.
