It is Arms Day my favorite day of the Destiny week. I get to see if the Gunsmith brought me a shiny new pew pew or a pile of weapon parts and marks.

I would like to share this piece of information that seems like most guardians that I talk with don’t know. That piece of information is that you do not have to cash in your Armsday roll the following week. You can keep that package week after week or in some cases month after month until you get that God roll you are looking for. God roll or bust is my motto with the Gunsmith.

This week features some fantastic packages:

  • Hakke Arminius-D
  • Hakke Zarinaea-D
  • Suros DIS- 47 Scout Rifle
  • Omolon Cocytus SR4 Scout Rifle
  • Omolon Uzume RR4

I am going to make this short and sweet and give you my picks for each node from most preferred perk to least preferred perk. I didn’t list all the available perks just the few that I thought would help complement the weapon’s stats.

My perfered are marked with a *

Omolon Uzume RR4
I am going to offer up a PvP and PvE perk list for this weapon since they are so different when it comes to Sniper rifles. Omolon doesn’t seem to be the choice foundry for PvP players and a PvE player I like the snipers with the higher impact so I skip this package usually. I am sure this Sniper has some fans.

The Uzume RR4 is a high RoF low Impact Sniper rifle (40/13) with a TtK of 0.53s with only body shots.

– PvE roll for this sniper –

Scope Node:
Condor SS2
Corvo SS2

Third Column Node:
Triple Tap *
Luck in the Chamber
Firefly

Fourth Column Node:
Rifled Barrel *

Fifth Column Node:
Mulligan *
Unflinching

Sadly there is not much left in this perk tree that will help this gun shine in PvE

– PvP roll for this sniper –

Scope Node:
Faucon SS1

Third Column Node:
Performance Bonus *
Army of One – This will help you as a guadian reduce the cool downs of grenade and melee

Fourth Column Node:
Snap Shot – This is all about the increased Aim Down Sight. The nerfed the perk and added more frames to the ADS for snipers; however, this is still a PvP favorite

Fifth Column Node:
Mulligan *
Unflinching
Clown Cartridge

 

The last perks that I have never like but PvP player might so I am going to list them in no real order here:

  • Life Support
  • Underdog
  • Exhumed
  • Last Resort
  • Battle Runner
