How to get Riptide in Destiny 2

Riptide is a Crucible weapon, strictly coming out of Destiny 2’s main PvP mode. It is rewarded randomly at the end of matches, so you’ll have to play a bit of Crucible and have a bit of luck if you want a Riptide.

There are a few things you can do to tip the odds in your favor. First, you can equip the crucible version of the Prosperity Ghost Mod on your Ghost. With this enabled, Crucible victories have a chance to earn an additional piece of legendary gear. This applies to both armor and weapons like Riptide.

Rewards drop at the end of matches, so focusing on faster match types can give you more opportunities in Riptide for the time invested. Mayhem and Scorch, in particular, tend to end quickly.

Riptide God Roll Recommendation in Destiny 2

Riptide is most effective when quickly unloading his full burst of fusion shots at an enemy, whether PVP or PVE.

The ultimate Riptide, or ‘God Roll’, is a secondary weapon that can quickly and accurately release all of its damage before returning to other weapons.

The best combination of perks, or “god roll”, will be different for different situations and players. However, there are certain combinations that should produce consistently excellent results.

Here’s our best recommended Riptide God roll in Destiny 2:

  • Corkscrew fluting
  • Accelerated coils
  • Automatic loading case
  • Cooling clip

Adding range and handling is helpful, but what makes the Corkscrew Rifling a hit for Riptide is the improved stability. This will help ensure that all shots in a burst hit their target accurately, which is essential for effective use.

The role of accelerated coils is simple: to make this gun shoot faster. There is a small damage drop, but the usefulness of that pales in comparison to firing quickly, and Riptide still hits very hard even with the damage loss.

A fusion rifle should be used in certain situations, with the other weapon handling most of the action. The auto-loading holster is perfect for this, as you can fire your main weapon, switch to Riptide to deal big damage, and return to find your other weapon fully reloaded and ready for action.

Chill Clip is only active for the first half of the Riptide magazine, but that’s more than enough to have a big impact. With it, the first shots slow down whoever is hit. This is a powerful tool for crowd control in PvE and an important aid in keeping a Guardian in place while you take them out in PvP.

As usual, once you have your preferred roll, 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.
