The No Survivors is the latest Solar Submachine Gun to be added to Destiny 2. It is one of four new weapons that were introduced alongside the new Ghosts of the Deep dungeon. Among all of the new weapons, the No Survivors is the only primary weapon in the set. So far, it has proven to be a very versatile weapon. It has even drawn comparisons to the king of Solar SMGs, the CALUS Mini-tool.
How to get No Survivors in Destiny 2?
The No Survivors can be acquired as a chance drop at the end of encounters from the new Ghosts of the Deep dungeon. It is not guaranteed since there is always the chance of acquiring armor pieces instead. But since the loot pool isn’t that deep, you may be able to get more than one roll per dungeon run.
Best No Survivors PvP God Roll
1st Column: Hammer-forged Rifling
2nd Column: High-Caliber Rounds
Quick Access Sling (Backup Mag as an option)
Rangefinder + Target Lock (This is “The Immortal” roll. It’s pretty much the roll you want or need in PvP. Not much more to say than that.)
Well-Rounded + Collective Action (This combination isn’t as good as Rangefinder with Target Lock but there will come a day when aggressive frame SMGs and Rangefinder is going to get nerfed again. So might have this roll in the back pocket. Best used with a grenade build.)
Just when you thought we’ve had our fill of The Immortal, then comes the No Survivors SMG. We’d usually say stick with The Immortal but we understand that there are players who simply do not like Trials of Osiris. Furthermore, to get access to the Adept version of The Immortal, you’ll need to get a Flawless run. And all players can do that for a variety of reasons.
In contrast, all you need to do to get the god roll for No Survivors is to complete encounters in the Ghosts of the Deep dungeon. So, if you don’t want to go through the trouble of running the Gauntlet that is Trials of Osiris, you can always farm the dungeon instead.
Best No Survivors PvE God Roll
1st Column: Smallbore
2nd Column: Flared Magwell
Reload Speed Masterwork
Backup Mag Mod
Demolitionist + Adrenaline Junkie (Classic grenade-based pairing. Both perks synergy well with each other.)
Demolitionist + Incandescent (Leaning more on Solar builds. This pairing is great for players who appreciate Incandescent and what it brings to the sandbox.)
Well, it’s no CALUS Mini-tool with Threat Detector and Incandescent but it’ll get the job done. You’ll just have to change up your playstyle to incorporate grenade use more often and you’re good to go.
How good is the No Survivors Submachine Gun?
If you’ve missed your chance of getting a craftable version of the CALUS Mini-tool, then going into the new dungeon for No Survivors is the next best thing. It is unfortunate that we won’t have access to Enhanced Incandescent but it is what it is.
Getting the god rolls for this weapon will be greatly beneficial to your efforts in Destiny 2. And even if you don’t manage to get the 5/5 god roll for either PvP or PvE, the perks are absolutely stacked for specialist playstyles.
These are the No Survivors Base Stats before any perks are applied:
Reload Speed: 26
Rounds Per Minute: 750
At base stats, The Immortal has a better spread overall. the No Survivors may have 4 more at range compared to The Immortal. However, The Immortal has 8 more points in stability, and that matters a lot on an SMG. But all that stuff doesn’t matter if you’re dueling head-to-head at lethal ranges. It is likely a toss-up that could very end with a trade. This is especially true if both guns have the same perks.

And that’s all we have right now for this No Survivors god roll guide. The gun really is just a Solar version of The Immortal. The regular version. Unless something new comes up, this is probably the best SMG introduced for this season. If we find more interesting rolls of this weapon, we will update the article. Until then, good luck and have fun out there, Guardians.
