Destiny 2 Unforgiven SMG God Roll & How to Get It (2022)

How To Get Unforgiven SMG and God Rolls in Destiny 2

The Unforgiven SMG is among the several new weapons that arrived during Destiny 2’s Season of the Haunted. Even in Season of Plunder, there’s no doubt that this void SMG still offers one of the best perk combinations and god rolls of any weapon in the game. As such, if you’re wondering how to get it, here’s what you need to do.

How do you get the Unforgiven SMG in Destiny 2?

The Unforgiven SMG can be obtained through encounters in the Duality Dungeon and hidden chests that spawn in Calus’ mind. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to craft this SMG.

You can’t expect to find the weapon lying about after completing the dungeon; you have to reach the second encounter: The Vault and third encounter: Calus’s Greatest Shame. Even then, it’s still up to random chances whether or not you get a drop.

Although the SMG can be found in hidden chests, getting it will need some work. The first chest can be found in the area containing four Cabal statues, and the second can be found next to the tenth Repressed Memory.

Can you craft the Unforgiven SMG?

No, you can’t craft your own Unforgiven SMG in Destiny 2, like most of the other weapons you’ll get from the Duality Dungeon.

Before diving deep into the Unforgiven’s best perks, let’s take a look at this weapon’s default stats first:

The Forgiven SMG’s aggressive frame allows it to deal a lot of damage to foes that can counter its considerable recoil. As such, here’s a list of god rolls and perks to go with it:

Best Unforgiven PVE God Roll in Destiny 2

  • Barrel Perk: Arrowhead Brake
  • Magazine Perk: High-Caliber Rounds
  • Third Column Perk: Demolitionist, Feeding Frenzy
  • Fourth Column Perk: Adrenaline Junkie, Rampage

Improved control and reduced recoil from using the “Arrowhead Brake” will lead to more accurate shots. And because of its increased range and potential to stagger, “High-Caliber Rounds” are especially essential.

There is a natural fit between Third and Fourth Column perks and the current trend of ability-focused builds. In addition, it provides a damage increase that is simple to reach its maximum of five stacks: all it takes is one grenade kill. While both “Rampage” and “Feeding Frenzy” increase your reload speed, they also give players rewards for killing enemies.

Best Unforgiven PVP God Roll in Destiny 2

  • Barrel Perk: Corkscrew Rifling
  • Magazine Perk: High-Caliber Rounds
  • Third Column Perk: Feeding Frenzy, Tunnel Vision
  • Fourth Column Perk: Rampage

So far, the strongest barrel mod for PVP is “Corkscrew Rifling,” which improves range, stability, and handling slightly. However, in the end, the decision is entirely up to you. The “High-Caliber Rounds” will be the same thing that is detailed in the PVE magazine Perk. Having them will increase your chances of success in battle, and you’ll also gain some more range as a bonus.

A faster reload time after killing enemies is a benefit of “Feeding Frenzy” or “Tunnel Vision,” either of which come in the third column perk. Since your magazine is smaller, you’ll be able to quickly engage more than one target. You can also utilize “Tunnel Vision” to speed up your aim down sight and find new targets after a kill. Lastly, since each kill adds a stack of Rampage, increasing your damage, the optimal Fourth Column Perk to choose now is “Rampage”.
