Destiny 2: The Best Black Armory Weapon Rolls

destiny 2 black armory best perfect god rolls

One of the main grinds of Destiny 2's Black Armory add-on is for the new forge weapons that are available from the new vendor Ada-1. Players are able to farm these weapons using the frames picked up from Ada-1 in order to search for the perfect roll for each particular weapon. We have collected the best rolls to be looking for while forging these frames into the new Black Armory weapons.

Blast Furnace

Blast Furnace is a 4-burst pulse rifle, and it has turned out to be one of the most powerful pulse rifles in Destiny 2. It can be especially deadly in PvP where the right roll can lead to the ability to two-burst an opposing Guardian—and it doesn't even require every shot landing on the head. The perfect roll for Blast Furnace is one that has:

  • Feeding Frenzy
  • Kill Clip

The other perks are up to personal preference, but the combination of Feeding Frenzy, which greatly increases reload speed after any kill, and Kill Clip, which increases damage after a reload, synergize to lead to massive damage.

Kindled Orchid

Kindled Orchid is a hand cannon in the 140 rate of fire archetype. What's unique about the best roll of the Kindled Orchid is that it can have two of the most popular perks in the game, which stack when activated for massive damage. This is a weapon that is better for PvE than it is for PvP, but that doesn't mean players shouldn't at least try it in PvP. The perfect roll for Kindled Orchid is:

  • Drop Mag
  • Kill Clip
  • Rampage

Players usually get a choice of only Kill Clip or Rampage, but the Kindled Orchid can roll with both, combining for massive damage output. Drop Mag is also necessary because the reload speed of the Kindled Orchid is abysmal, and Drop Mag greatly increases reload speed allowing players to take advantage of the Kill Clip/Rampage combo.

Tatara Gaze

The next Black Armory weapon is Tatara Gaze, a high-impact sniper rifle, which with the right perk, can one-shot to the body in PvP. Many of the perks are up to personal preference the one perk that is necessary for this perfect roll is:

  • Kill Clip

Kill Clip allows this high-impact sniper to kill in one shot to the body of an enemy Guardian. Other great perks to have in the other columns include Snapshot Sights, Quickdraw, or Outlaw.


The Hammerhead machinegun's best roll will turn it into a mini-Thunderlord. The Hammerhead is the same archetype as the Thunderlord exotic machinegun, and while it pales in comparison to the Thunderlord due to the chain lightning and increased rate of fire that the Thunderlord has, the Hammerhead is a good alternative for anyone who wants to use a powerful machinegun in their heavy slot while also being able to use another exotic weapon in a different slot. Therefore, the best roll for the Hammerhead is to make it as close of a copy to Thunderlord as possible, which leads to the perks:

  • Polygonal Rifling
  • Extended Mag or a perk that increases reload speed
  • Feeding Frenzy
  • Rampage

The main use for the Hammerhead with the roll is multiple target damage and clearing adds. That is needed for Feeding Frenzy and Rampage to proc, so use this weapon in that way instead of for damaging one high-health enemy.

Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
