If you’re like me and enjoying the new Strand subclasses, then you might’ve heard of the primary weapon known as Rufus’s Fury Destiny 2. It is a kinetic weapon that features the strand element from the Lightfall expansion. The gun has some interesting perks, along with the fact that it’s a 720 RPM archetype. So with god roll perks such as Recombination for PVE as well as Perpetual motion for PVP, it can become a killing beast of an auto rifle.
How To Obtain Rufus’s Fury
If you have an idea of the gun and play the game regularly like me, then you will already know that you can acquire it through the loot drops of the Root Of Nightmares raid. The raid requires you to be at least 1770 power level in order to attempt it without any discomfort against the enemies. Furthermore, according to the loot pool, you have a chance to obtain the auto rifle through the third and final encounters of the raid.
Alternatively, you can also acquire the weapon through other means via the weapon crafting system of the Relic on Mars/Savathun’s Throne World. You will first need to acquire five deepsight weapon patterns for it, which can all be obtained via the raid, but it all depends on your luck.
Thankfully if you’ve activated the final chest before beating Nezarec in the last encounter, then you have a full-proof chance to obtain the deepsight weapon pattern for it once per character per week.
Following are the available perks available for Destiny 2’s Rufus’s Fury auto rifle, which can all roll on the gun depending on your RNG factor:

|Perk Column 2
Furthermore, it is also worth stating that the Root Of Nightmares weapons (just like other raid weapons) also feature a unique origin trait that is not found on most other weapons. The following Origin Trait for Rufus’s Fury raid weapon is called:
- Harmonic Resonance: Equipping multiple weapons from this set grants this weapon increased reload speed and handling. It also deals increased damage versus Tormentors, Lucent Hive, and Guardians using their Supers.
Adept And Crafted Version Differences
First things first, the adept version is largely similar to the normal versions of weapons, and they are only available in the master or higher difficulty variants of certain activities. Adept weapons feature a +3 stat boost to all non-master worked stats, but the only downside is that whatever enhanced perks you find on them, they cannot be re-rolled whatsoever.
Furthermore, on the adept versions of weapons, such as Rufus’s Fury, you can also equip them with Adept Mods, which can range from increasing their range or even providing extra damage to bosses/major enemies.
However, we strongly recommend going for a crafted version of Rufus’s Fury solely for PVE with the god rolls we will mention, as unlocking the weapon for crafting will come eventually. You will only have to level it up in order to unlock enhanced versions of certain perks. While the adept version may certainly sound tempting, having flexibility in your weapon with the crafted version will be a much better experience in the long run.
PVE God Roll
Rufus’s Fury excels at delivering a high velocity of damage due to it being a 720 rounds-per-minute auto rifle. Hence why we have recommended the following rolls for it in PVE to make it an ad-clearing beast:
- Gun Barrel: Arrowhead Brake or Hammer-forged Rifling
- Magazine: High-caliber or Ricochet rounds
- Perk 1: Reconstruction or Demolitionist
- Perk 2: Target Lock, Frenzy, Hatchling (Warlocks)
720 RPM auto rifles are pretty much like laserbeams, so ideally, you will want an increased range or stability, hence why we have listed the aforementioned barrels. High-caliber can be a fantastic choice to deal additional knockback damage to enemies with every single shot, or you can even use ricochet in its stead, which will increase the stability of Rufus’s Fury but also allow the gun to fire off from surfaces.
Reconstruction will double the magazine size of the gun over time, allowing you to fire it longer than having to reload. You can also substitute with demolitionist too, as kills with the weapon will help build grenade energy, perfect for most meta builds. Target Lock and Frenzy are great to have increased damage against enemies, but Warlocks can also get by with Hatchling since their Strand builds revolve around the Threadlings.
PVP God Roll
At the moment, Auto Rifles in The Crucible can be a great choice, but there are some occasions where the meta weapons, such as No Time To Explain, can outgun you with its Time-To-Kill ratio. Still, if you’re on the fence about using Rufus’s Fury for PVP, we have outlined the god roll for it below:
- Gun Barrel: Polygonal Rifling or Hammer-forged Rifling
- Magazine: High-caliber or Appended Mag
- Perk 1: Perpetual Motion or Moving Target
- Perk 2: Target Lock
Having range will greatly optimize Rufus’s Fury to be a strong weapon in most PVP maps, especially ones where you will engage Guardians at longer distances. Perpetual Motion allows you to gain bonus handling, reloading speed, and stability while moving. Still, you can also substitute it with Moving Target, which will allow you to gain increased target acquisition and movement speed while aiming-down-sights.
Lastly, Target Lock is essential to make it the godly PVP roll as it basically increases the damage of the weapon the longer it is fired on a target. It will allow you to shred through the health of most Guardians with ease.
