Dead Man’s Tale God Roll – Destiny 2

Whether you play PvE or PvP in Destiny 2. Here are the recommended perks that make up the Dead Man's Tale god roll.

Dead Man’s Tale is an Exotic Scout Rifle Guardians can chase in Season of the Chosen in Destiny 2. This Exotic weapon can roll with different perks and finding the right perks will take some time. This guide will tell you the recommended PvE and PvP perks that make up the Dead Man’s Tale god roll.

Dead Man’s Tale God Roll – PVE

In Season of the Hunt, Bungie introduced random rolls for perks on some Exotic weapons. This trend continues with Season of the Chosen and Dead Man’s Tale.

Dead Man’s Tale is the newest Exotic to roll random perks that can make it that much better. With Dead Man’s Tale being a Scout Rifle, you will want to focus on increasing your reload speed. The intrinsic perk is called Cranial Spike and is triggered when you chain precision hits. Those precision hits grant increased damage and reload speed.

Perks you will want to look out for will increase Handling, Stability, and decrease reload time, or eliminate the need for it entirely. Below are the recommended PvE perks for Dead Man’s Tale:

PvE Perk Slot 1

The barrel-type you are looking for will increase Stability and Handling.

  • Corkscrew Rifling: +5 Range, +5 Stability, and +5 Handling
  • Chambered Compensator: +10 Stability, +10 Recoil, -5 Handling
  • Fluted Barrel: +5 Stability and +15 Handling
  • Polygonal Rifle: +10 Stability
  • Smallbore: +7 Range and +7 Stability

PvE Perk Slot 2

Increasing Stability is your focus in perk slot 2. You will be looking for two perks here.

  • Steady Rounds: +15 Stability and -5 Range
  • Ricochet Round: +5 Range and +10 Stability

PvE Perk Slot 3

There is only one perk you should be hunting for in the third perk slot and that is Outlaw.

  • Outlaw: Precision kills greatly decrease reload time
  • Fourth Time’s The Charm: Rapidly landing precision hits will return two rounds to the magazine.

PvE Perk Slot 4

Increasing your Stability is still key and you are looking for one specific perk in the last slot.

  • Hand-Laid Stock: +10 Stability
  • Short-Action Stock: +15 Handling

Dead Man’s Tale God Roll – PvP

The recommended PvP perks will pretty much mirror what you want with the PvE roll as well. Below are the recommended PvP perks for Dead Man’s Tale:

PvP Perk Slot 1

Getting your Stability and Recoil just right is your main focus here.

  • Corkscrew Rifling: +5 Range, +5 Stability, and +5 Handling
  • Chambered Compensator: +10 Stability, +10 Recoil, -5 Handling
  • Fluted Barrel: +5 Stability and +15 Handling
  • Polygonal Rifle: +10 Stability
  • Smallbore: +7 Range and +7 Stability

PvP Perk Slot 2

I prefer a little extra Range over Stability since it fits my play style better. Either of these perks will be great.

  • Steady Rounds: +15 Stability and -5 Range
  • Ricochet Round: +5 Range and +10 Stability

PvP Perk Slot 3

Killing Wind is the popular choice, but Subsistence can mean almost no need to reload. Less ammo isn’t a problem for this weapon in PvP, and getting a kill will return rounds to the magazine allowing players to just keep firing and killing without having to stop to reload.

  • Killing Wind: Final blows grant increased mobility, weapon range, and handling for a short duration
  • Subsistence: Kills partially reload the magazine from reserves, but reserve capacity is reduced

PvP Perk Slot 4

Mirroring the PvE perks, you will be looking out for either of these two perks.

  • Hand-Laid Stock: +10 Stability
  • Short-Action Stock: +15 Handling

Dead Man’s Tale is quite possibly one of the best Scout Rifles you can obtain in Destiny 2 and the right perks make it amazing. Thanks to light.gg for listing all available perks you can obtain. Stay tuned to Guide Stash and the Destiny 2 archives for more guides and news.
