Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer is here and it’s time to elevate your fashion game. Along with new weapons, a 6 player activity, armor, story missions, and season pass, the heavily requested armor transmogrification feature is finally arriving. In this season, players will team up with the Fallen Captain Mithrax to stop the Vex from plunging Earth into total darkness. Of course, the main thing you care about is getting all that sweet, sweet loot. Along with the Solstice of Heroes event, players can now hunt down a new Precision Frame shotgun called the Compass Rose.
How to Get Compass Rose
There are two ways to get Compass Rose during the Solstice of Heroes event. The first is by progressing through Eva Levante’s quest at The Tower. Throughout the quest, she will drop the Compass Rose, but unfortunately, it appears that it will always have the same perks. While Genesis/Vorpal Weapon is a decent combo, it’s not the god roll for PVP or PVE. The other way is by opening Solstice Packages and hoping it drops a Compass Rose for you. The drop rate for this weapon seems to be abysmally low, as I’ve opened 50 packages so far and only obtained two additional shotguns. To get Solstice Packages, you need to kill mini-bosses in the EAZ and then open up the chests once you slay the final boss. Each package requires 15 Solstice Keys, which are obtained by opening EAZ chests, completing Solstice bounties, or finishing general activities in Destiny 2.
Compass Rose God Rolls
Compass Rose PVE God Roll
- Full Choke
- Assault Mag
- Field Prep or Lead From Gold
- Vorpal Weapon or Trench Barrel
When it comes to the Compass Rose PVE god roll it entirely depends on what you will be using this shotgun for. Because of this, I decided to include a roll that’s great for single-target boss damage and one for general use. Regardless of your primary perks, you will first want Full Choke to tighten the spread at the cost of a slight decrease in precision damage. You can run Smoothbore, but this actually increases the weapon’s projectile spread, making it less consistent. In the first primary perk slot, I guess either Field Prep or Lead From Gold. The former is terrific for bosses since you can get a quick reload in while Lead From Gold works wonders for engaging multiple targets. Plus, it allows you to keep a constant stream of ammo which is great for more casual PVE modes or even some raid/dungeon encounters.
In your second slot, I recommend either Vorpal Weapon or Trench Barrel. Vorpal Weapon pairs wonderfully with Field Prep, letting you pour on damage to a boss while Trench Barrel is a little more flexible. Even though Trench Barrel got nerfed seasons ago, it’s still a solid shotgun perk — especially if you are utilizing a melee build.
Compass Rose PVP God Roll
- Full Choke
- Accurized Rounds
- Snapshot Sights or Vorpal Weapon
As for the PVP roll, you will want both Full Choke and Accurized Rounds to give you better range. Both of these perks combined make the Compass Rose way more consistent in fights, allowing you to easily take down Guardians before they can react. To help us win our shotgun fights, we are also looking for Quickdraw and Snapshot Sights. These two perks combined make the Compass Rose terrifying in the right hands, as you can ADS (aim down sights) comically quick with this gun. Given the base range of 66, this turns the Compass Rose into a PVP monster and certainly one of the best shotguns for Crucible. Another solid perk you can get is Vorpal Weapon, which is great for killing Guardians in their Supers.
