How to get Rose in Destiny 2
Rose is a Crucible weapon and is initially obtained by participating in the Dividing the Ladder quest.
Visit Lord Shaxx in the Tower and he will give you the quest. Your mission: Complete placement matches in the Crucible competitive playlist.
You will need to complete seven matches to meet this condition. There is no need to win, so even Guardians who are not fans of PvP will be able to do so.
Once you finish the matches and get a location, return to Lord Shaxx. He will reward you with your Rose.
In the future, you’ll be able to earn one rose per character/per week by completing a weekly Competitive Division challenge, each delivering random perks.
The Season of the Depths is here along with the Into the Depths quest. You can also know how to go fishing! Don’t forget to keep an eye on the Lost Sector and King’s Fall challenge rotation schedule!
Pink God Roll Recommendation in Destiny 2
Rose is a hand cannon designed to combine the firepower of a 140 RPM hand cannon with the faster speed and handling of the now defunct 150 RPM archetype, thanks to its intrinsic Lightweight Frame trait. It is a weapon for an agile shooter, in the center of the action.
An ideal drop, or “god roll,” from Rose emphasizes fast, accurate shooting with an increase in damage output.
Here’s our recommended Pink God roll in Destiny 2:
- Corkscrew fluted
- tactical mag
- perpetual motion
- explosive charge
Corkscrew Rifling gets the nod over frequent favorite Arrowhead break due to its increased range. Rose has a very predictable recoil pattern, so there’s no need to affect it, and controlling damage reduction is always an important consideration for hand cannons.
Tactical Mag is a jack of all trades. An extra bullet for the magazine of a hand cannon is a great help. Improving stability and reload speed is key to keeping your gun consistently firing with high accuracy.
Perpetual Motion is designed to increase stability, handling and reload speed if you continually move. That works perfectly with the best way to use Rose, and the buff will be active frequently.
The explosive payload is ideal for hand cannons. Converts half of the damage dealt into burst damage, which does not decrease based on range. Also improves that part of the damage by 30% in PvE activities. With it, Rose is more lethal and effective at long ranges.
As usual, once you have your roll of choice, be sure to upgrade it to Masterwork to give it a stat boost, the ability to spawn orbs on multiple kills, and add the option for a kill tracker.
