No one can stand the wrath of Gunnora's Axe!

This isn’t the first time Gunnora’s Axe will be introduced in Destiny 2. This weapon has been introduced twice before and will be returning during the Season of the Seraph. Needless to say, this weapon has been an integral part of the Iron Banner loot pool previously, and this season won’t be any different.

To get your hands on Gunnora’s Axe, you will have to wait until the Iron Banner activity goes live during this season. Just like the Trials of Osiris, the Iron Banner is an activity that runs over the weekends during the season. However, it’s not as frequent as the Trials of Osiris. That said here are the speculated god rolls for this weapon, both for PvP and PvE.

Gunnora’s Axe God Rolls for PvP and PvE in Destiny 2 Season of The Seraph

Shotguns have always had a fan following in Destiny 2. When it comes to close-quarters combat, be it PvP or PvE, shotguns are deadly, and can effectively one-shot most enemies and Guardians alike. That said, here are the rolls that you can consider while farming for the Gunnora’s Axe in Destiny 2.

PvE God Rolls

  • Barrel: Arrowhead Brake ( +30 Recoil, +10 Handling) / Fluted Barrel ( +5 Stability, +15 Handling)
  • Magazine: Accurized Rounds ( +10 Range) / Flared Magwell ( +15 Reload Speed, +5 Stability )
  • Basic Trait 1: Hip-Fire Grip ( Increased accuracy, stability, and precision hit targeting when firing from the hip)
  • Basic Trait 2: Vorpal Weapon ( Increased damage against vehicles, bosses, and Guardians with their super active) / Voltshot (Reloading this weapon after defeating a target overcharges this weapon for a short period of time, jolting the target on the next hit)

Between the two rolls, the Arrowhead Brake improves the recoil and the handling on this gun. With bonus handling, your weapon will be ready to fire quicker than other weapons. The Fluted Barrel on the other hand will give you more stability and handling.

With the Accurized Rounds, this shotgun won’t turn into a sniper, but having a few points on the range will prevent enemies from getting into melee range. If you don’t care about getting into punching range, the Flared Magwell will give you bonus stability and will help you reload quickly.

For the first trait, it doesn’t get any better than Hip-Fire Grip. No one really aims down the sights with a shotgun, so you could do with additional accuracy, stability, and precision hits when firing from the hip.

In the second column, the Vorpal Weapon perk will help you deal more DPS to bosses. Alternatively, with the Voltshot perk, you’ll have an ad-clearing monster on your hands.

PvP God Rolls

  • Barrel: Hammer-forged Rifling (+10 Range) / Arrowhead Brake ( +30 Recoil, +10 Handling)
  • Magazine: Accurized Rounds ( +10 Range) / Flared Magwell ( +15 Reload Speed, +5 Stability )
  • Basic Trait 1: Moving Target ( Increased target acquisition and movement speed when moving while aiming down the sights ) / Hip-Fire Grip ( Increased accuracy, stability, and precision hit targeting when firing from the hip)
  • Basic Trait 2: Voltshot (Reloading this weapon after defeating a target overcharges this weapon for a short period of time, jolting the target on the next hit) / Opening shot ( Increased range and accuracy on the first shot of the attack )

When it comes to PvP, range is important. So Hammer-Forged Rifling and Accurized Rounds should be your go-to perks. With the perks, Moving Target and Opening Shot are helpful because the former will help you move quicker while aiming down the sights. The latter will make your first shot deadly accurate. In PvP, where you barely have two to three rounds to start with, Opening Shot is a perk makes a world of difference.

Given that Gunnora’s Axe hasn’t gone live in the game yet, the aforementioned rolls are pure speculation, for now, based on how these rolls have performed on other Pin Point Slug frame shotguns. We’ll update these rolls once it goes live in the game.

The Dawning event is currently live in the game. Here’s how you can get your hands on ingredients like Dark Frosting, Flash of Inspiration, and Sharp Flavor over the course of the event in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
