There’s brand new loot in Destiny 2, and it packs a punch. The new weapons from the raid “The Apprentice’s Oath” are not only visually captivating. We introduces them and tells you how strong the endgame weapons are and what they can do.
Destiny 2’s ambitious content par excellence began with a raid sprint, in which hundreds of teams encountered left and right communication errors, lest we forget a slew of bugs in various encounters. However, despite the big hiccups, those who compete during the raid race or those simply trying to complete the first day have gotten some great exclusive loot.
Most talked about by the Witch Queen; the Rebel Raid Vows will be unlocked today. The campaign has already ended, but the raid has not yet begun. If we talk about it, it was one of the best campaigns I have ever played. The story is excellent and ends with a great note, leaving everyone wondering what happened or what will happen next.
Destiny 2 raids are among the most challenging and rewarding activities in the game. Raids are six-player co-op missions that require a high level of coordination and communication to complete. Upon completion, players are rewarded with some of the best loot.
What awaits you in the raid: In the latest Witch, Queen raid, “The Apprentice’s Oath”, you can expect not only an epic, dark setting but also well-done puzzles, challenging tasks and a realization that changes everything. Although the raid is only a few days old, it is already one of the best raids in Destiny 2 for the community.
In addition to the cool content, players can expect some rewards in the new raid. Above all, the raid weapons, including the latest raid exotic, are known to be strong options that should not be missed.
This makes the raid weapons unique: The new legendary weapons from the raid have a unique weapon animation and the original perk “Soul Drinker”. Each weapon also has a weapon crafting blueprint that can be extracted.
Incidentally, after the first raid run was completed, the Destiny universe also changed as a result. You can read more about this here All stats given in the article are the base stats of the weapon. So still without bonuses from perks, such as range. Compared to other legendary weapons, it is noticeable that the base values are quite solid.
Insidious – Pulse Rifle
The weapon can do: “Insidious” is a rare pulse rifle with a hard-hitting, aggressive four-salvo fire. The weapon is visually reminiscent of the popular black and red weapon “Blast Furnace” from the Black Armory.
Specific Origin Perk: The new raid weapons have the unique origin perk “Soul Drinker”. This means all weapons from the Apprentice’s Oath raid grant health based on the number of hits before reloading.
These are popular perks on the weapon: The new perk “Lure and Change” is particularly strong with the pulse rifle. It causes damage dealt with within a short period with other weapons and increases that weapon’s damage bonus. This allows the pulse rifle to be optimally combined with all weapons in your loadout. Otherwise, the Quick Strike and Steady Hands perks are also powerful options for the Pulse Rifle.
Is there a good alternative? Currently, the Sacred Origin Legendary Pulse Rifle from the Garden of Salvation raid would still be an available alternative.
In which encounter do you get the weapon? The Insidious Pulse Rifle drops in the second encounter (The Caretaker) and the final boss in the Apprentice’s Oath raid.
