Destiny 2: How to Get Curated Black Armory Weapon Rolls

One of the pursuits hardcore Destiny 2 fans have is chasing down the curated weapons in the game, which are specific versions of weapons that developer Bungie put in the game that drop with a fixed roll and a level 10 Masterwork. There are curated versions of all seven Black Armory weapons, and players have discovered exactly what they are and how to get their hands on them.

The secret to getting curated Black Armory weapons in Destiny 2 is to complete Ada-1's weekly Powerful Frames at the Bergusia Forge. It's not a guaranteed drop, but there is a chance for a curated weapon to drop when completing a Powerful Frame in the Bergusia Forge. In addition, the curated versions of the Black Armory will also drop with a unique Black Armory shader called Bergusia Night that can only be found on a curated weapon.

Curated rolls tend to be very good rolls, but they aren't always the fan-favorite or most powerful roll of each particular weapon in the game. They do come with a maxed-out Masterwork level, however, so that will save players the need to upgrade that stat on the weapon. As for the Black Armory weapons, there are some curated rolls that are the most popular rolls while some fans may prefer others. The curated rolls for each weapon are:

The Spiteful Fang

  • Natural String
  • Fiberglass Arrow Shaft
  • Archer's Tempo
  • Explosive Head
  • Accuracy Masterwork

Not a bad roll, but most players will be searching for a roll with Rampage instead of Explosive Head.

Blast Furnace

  • Meyrin RDL / Satou Focus Lens
  • Tactical Mag
  • Outlaw
  • Headseeker
  • Handling Masterwork

This is one of the best pulse rifles in the game with the right roll, and this curated roll is not it. The most popular and powerful roll of this weapon is one that drops with the Feeding Frenzy and Rampage/Kill Clip combo.

The Ringing Nail

  • Rasmussen ISA / Meyrin RDL
  • High-Caliber Rounds
  • Dragonfly
  • Rampage
  • Stability Masterwork

The Ringing Nail curated roll is a great roll, especially for PvE with Dragonfly and Rampage. Some players may prefer other rolls based on their individual playstyle, but this is definitely one to seek out and keep.

Kindled Orchid

  • Corkscrew Rifling
  • Drop Mag
  • Kill Clip
  • Rampage
  • Range Masterwork

This version of the Kindled Orchid is the "god roll" with its unique Kill Clip and Rampage perk pairing that can lead to extremely high damage numbers and fast reloads.

Tatara Gaze

  • Chambered Compensator
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Snapshot Sights
  • Box Breathing
  • Handling Masterwork

This isn't a horrible version of this sniper rifle, which is better suited for PvE. But most players are seeking a roll of this sniper rifle that includes Kill Clip, allowing the Tatara Gaze to one-shot body-shot opponents in the Crucible.

Stryker's Sure-Hand

  • Tempered Edge
  • Balanced Guard
  • Assassin's Blade
  • Surrounded Spec
  • Impact Masterwork

This is an extremely good if not the best roll of the Stryker's Sure-Hand sword.


  • Hammer-Forged Rifling
  • Armor-Piercing Rounds
  • Feeding Frenzy
  • Rampage
  • Handling Masterwork

Like the Kindled Orchid, this curated roll is the best roll on the Hammerhead, turning this Legendary machinegun into a mini-Thunderlord.

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