Imperial Needle God Roll – Destiny 2

Be on the lookout for an Imperial Needle god roll. We've got ideal perk combinations for both PvE and PvP.

Imperial Needle is a Legendary Combat Bow that can be acquired during Season of the Chosen. This Combat Bow has great Handling and a load of other great perks that can be hunted. This guide will tell you the recommended PvE and PvP perks that make up the Imperial Needle god roll in Destiny 2.

Imperial Needle God Roll – PVE

Some of my favorite weapons in Destiny 2 are Combat Bows and I always have one on my Hunter. Combat Bows provide the player with a deadly accurate weapon that can deal a lot of damage quickly. Imperial Needle is one of those Combat Bows you want to have. Here are the recommended PvE perks:

PvE Perk Slot 1

Imperial Needle has great Handling, to begin with, but why not add more while improving the Charge Time and Draw Time?

Article continues below
  • Elastic String: +5 Handling, +20 Draw Time, +20 Charge Time, and -10 Accuracy
  • Flexible String: +10 Handling, +10 Charge Time, +10 Draw Time, and -5 Accuracy
  • Agile Bowstring: +5 Stability and +15 Handling

PvE Perk Slot 2

While the Accuracy is decent on Imperial Needle, increasing it is quite useful on a bow.

  • Combat Arrow Shaft: +20 Inventory Size
  • Fiberglass Arrow Shaft: +15 Accuracy and -5 Stability
  • Straight Fletching: +10 Accuracy

PvE Perk Slot 3

No-brainer here with Impulse Amplifier. You’ll hit more targets when your arrow arrives at them more quickly.

  • Archer’s Tempo: Draw time decreases after every precision hit
  • Killing Wind: Final blows grant increased mobility, weapon range, and handling for a short duration
  • Impulse Amplifier: Massively increases projectile velocity, increases reload speed

PvE Perk Slot 4

Swashbuckler is a great perk to have, but you get some options here. Do you want to get your abilities back as fast as possible? Me, I’m sticking with Swashbuckler.

  • Swashbuckler: This weapon gains increased damage from melee kills and kills with this weapon
  • Thresh: Killing combatants with this weapon generates a small amount of Super energy
  • Wellspring: Kills with this weapon generate ability energy. This energy is divided between your uncharged abilities

Imperial Needle God Roll – PvP

Combat Bows are deadly in PvP and if you are one of those players that like to use them, Imperial Needle will be one you want to have. Here are the recommended Imperial Needle PvP perks:

PvP Perk Slot 1

PvP is largely about doing damage to your opponent faster than they can do damage to you. With that in mind, let’s improve the Charge Time and Draw time, with a small bump to Accuracy.

  • Elastic String: +5 Handling, +20 Draw Time, +20 Charge Time, and -10 Accuracy
  • Flexible String: +10 Handling, +10 Charge Time, +10 Draw Time, and -5 Accuracy
  • Polymer String: +5 Accuracy, +10 Charge Time, and +10 Draw Time

PvP Perk Slot 2

You will only be looking for two perks in the second slot. Increasing Accuracy is going to be key. The loss to Stability is irrelevant here, so take the extra Accuracy.

  • Fiberglass Arrow Shaft: +15 Accuracy and -5 Stability
  • Straight Fletching: +10 Accuracy

PvP Perk Slot 3

Delivering final blow is going to be what you are aiming to increase some key stats in PvP.

  • Archer’s Tempo: Draw time decreases after every precision hit
  • Killing Wind: Final blows grant increased mobility, weapon range, and handling for a short duration

PvP Perk Slot 4

Only two perks to look out for in the final perk slot. I am not a big fan of Swashbuckler in PvP, so Opening Shot is your go-to here.

  • Opening Shot: Improved accuracy and range on the opening shot of attack
  • Swashbuckler: This weapon gains increased damage from melee kills and kills with this weapon

Imperial Needle will be a great Combat Bow to have if you are a fan of them. Thanks to light.gg for all the listed perks available to Imperial Needle. Be sure to check out our Destiny 2 archives for more news and god roll guides.
