Destiny 2: Elsie’s Rifle God Rolls

The Stranger’s Rifle returns in Destiny 2 as Elsie’s Rifle, one of the 12 guns in the BRAVE arsenal of weapons added in the Into The Light update. It’s easily one of the best Legendary Aggressive Pulse Rifle’s in the game currently due to its impressive base stats and solid perk pool, rivaling even the current iteration of the Messenger from Trials of Osiris.


Destiny 2’s New Light Subclasses Will Be Dead on Arrival

Destiny 2 is adding Prismatic subclasses with The Final Shape, but their Light counterparts may be dead on arrival.

With the list of traits available to Elsie’s Rifle, it’s hard to go wrong with any roll you get. However, if you want to bring the best when taking on the hardest of content like Destiny 2’s raids and GM Nightfalls, or if you want to stay competitive in the Crucible, you’ll want to bring the best perk combinations you can get from this weapon.

Before diving into the rolls, it’s worth noting that Elsie’s Rifle comes with a very impressive stat package. Its base Handling is very high for an Aggressive Frame Pulse Rifle, and its reload stat of 60 means that, by default, players will only have a 1.7 second downtime between magazines. The base Range and Stability on Elsie’s Rifle are excellent as well, giving this weapon some more leeway when it comes to what perks it can comfortably take.

WIth that being said, we highly recommend using Extended Mag and a Reload Speed Masterwork on this weapon for PvE. The extra rounds will come in handy during add-heavy encounters, especially in modes like Destiny 2’s Onslaught where the enemies just keep coming. Then, try getting a rifle with any of the two perk combos listed above.


Destiny 2: The Whisper Quest Walkthrough

Here’s a complete guide showing the right path through Destiny 2’s The Whisper quest, as well as some tips on how to fight the final boss.

The classic Repulsor Brace/Destabilizing Rounds combo will make Elsie’s Rifle perfect for Void builds. These perks will help you clear groups faster while giving you some extra survivability. Meanwhile, Rewind Rounds and Adrenaline Junkie will make the gun hit even harder for extended periods of time. Indomitability, the Origin Trait of all Destiny 2’s BRAVE weapons, grants grenade energy on-kill if you’re using a Light subclass, giving even more value to Adrenaline Junkie.

As far as PvP is concerned, any roll with either Zen Moment or Headseeker will do nicely. Having both on the same gun will skyrocket your dueling potential — Zen Moment mitigates flinch, while Headseeker makes your shots magnetize towards the heads of your enemies if you ever hit a stray body shot. These kinds of consistency perks are top-tier when it comes to competing in Destiny 2’s Crucible.

Aggressive Frame Pulse Rifles will always kill other Guardians in two bursts if all the bullets hit the head. Damage perks like Kill Clip and Desperate Measures won’t make this weapon kill faster, though they will make it more forgiving by making body shots deadlier.
