Here are the recommended PvE and PvP perks for Temptation's Hook in Destiny 2.

Temptation’s Hook is a Legendary Sword acquired during Season of Arrivals in Destiny 2.  To obtain this Sword, you will need to get an Umbral Engram and decrypt it in the Annex where The Drifter resides. You will want to keep an eye out for certain perks depending on if you play PvE or PvP. Here are the recommended perks that make up the Temptation’s Hook god roll in Destiny 2.

Temptation’s Hook God Roll PvE

When Swords initially appeared in the first Destiny, the community was excited to wield a different kind of weapon. Swords have become the preferred weapon for many Guardians, not only to use against opponents, but also to explore an area by going into third person mode.

Lately, Swords haven’t been getting the love they deserve and have badly needed a buff. Season of the Worthy changed that by making swords more usable against Champions. The right perks also help make the weapon more formidable. Here are the PvE perks to look for.

PvE Perk Slot 1

Impact and Magazine size are the most important perks to have for your blade.

  • Enduring Blade: -5 Impact, +35 Magazine, and +35 Ammo Capacity.
  • Honed Edge: Impact +5, Magazine +0, and Ammo Capacity +0.
  • Jagged Edge: +10 Impact, -20 Magazine, -20 Ammo Capacity.
  • Tempered Forge: +3 Impact, +10 Magazine, and +10 Ammo Capacity.

PvE Perk Slot 2

When guarding, you want high Stability and Defense.

  • Balanced Guard: +50 Stability, +50 Defense, +50 Inventory Size, +50 Efficiency, +0 Charge Time.
  • Burst Guard: +100 Stability, +100 Defense, +0 Inventory Size, and +100 Efficiency.
  • Swordmaster’s Guard: +20 Stability, +20 Defense, +50 Inventory Size, +30 Efficiency, and +10 Charge Time.

PvE Perk Slot 3

Both of these perks will grant you ammo for using your Sword. Either one is great to have.

  • Tireless Blade: Sword ammo granted for every other powered sword kill.
  • Relentless Strikes: Landing three light-attack hits within a short time grants Sword ammo.

PvE Perk Slot 4

Having a perk that increases damage in the final slot is the way to go.

  • Surrounded: This weapon gains bonus damage when three or more enemies are in close proximity.
  • Vorpal Weapon: Increased damage against bosses, vehicles, and Guardians with their Super active.
  • Flash Counter: Melee blocked immediately after guarding disorients and weakens the attacker.
  • Whirlwind Blade: Rapid strikes increase this weapon damage for a short duration. Guarding also ends the effect.

Temptation’s Hook God Roll PvP

Swords are one of the more fatal heavy weapons in Destiny 2 PvP due to how easy it is to defeat your opponent and having the ability to see in third-person. With very similar perks compared to PvE, here are the recommended PvP perks.
