There’s nothing better than a shotgun to deal with a sword. The Swordbreaker is here with the arrival of the Crota’s End raid. While this shotgun may be a niche choice for a PVP weapon, it is a pretty decent PVE weapon. Get ready for some heavy pellet shots, and here are the Swordbreaker god rolls in Destiny 2.

How to Get Swordbreaker in Destiny 2

The Swordbreaker is one of the weapons you can collect during the Crota’s End raid after the second and fourth encounters. There is also a chance that you get a red-border Deepsight version of this weapon, and you can get one each week at the Crota’s End sword vendor after the boss fight. That means that this weapon is craftable so you will need to extract five Deepsight weapon pattern progress to craft Swordbreaker at the Enclave.


Swordbreaker God Rolls

Swordbreaker PVE God Roll

  • Corkscrew Rifling
  • Appended Mag
  • Subsistence
  • Sword Logic / One-Two Punch
  • Masterwork: Stability, Reload Speed.

The Swordbreaker is better equipped for PVE with some useful traits that will further expand its capabilities. Subsistence will reload your magazine after defeating targets, reducing the need to reload the weapon. Sword Logic will grant final blows with bonus damage, allowing you to expand its duration and strength by defeating powerful enemies. You can also use the One-Two Punch trait, which will grant a melee damage bonus after heating an enemy with every pellet shot from the barrel of the Swordbreaker.

Swordbreaker PVP God Roll

  • Smallbore
  • Assault Mag
  • Slideshot
  • Opening Shot
  • Masterwork: Stability, Reload Speed.

While PVP could benefit from a better trait pool, the Swordbreaker still packs some punch with what it has. Slideshot will reward your sliding with automatic weapon reloading and a range and stability boost and agile Guardians benefit from this trait. Opening Shot provides increased accuracy and range on the opening shot of the Swordbreaker’s attack. This will help you survive and even win the occasional Guardian encounter during PVP matches.
