Shadow Price god roll - Destiny 2

Shadow Price returns again with another powerful god roll for PvE and PvP.


The Final Shape requires only the best weapons to defeat The Witness and this Nightfall gear refresh has the ticket. Shadow Price has been a celebrated Auto Rifle since the early days of Destiny 1 and getting another perk refresh in Destiny 2 gives these PvE and PvP god rolls a new level of power for Guardians to wield.

How to get Shadow Price

Shadow Price is obtainable from Nightfall activity completions. This random drop is not guaranteed but the higher the difficulty of Nightfall you defeat, the higher the chance you’ll receive one. Keep an eye on the Nightfall weapon rotation schedule for when it comes up next.

The Adept version of Shadow Price is only obtainable from successful Grandmaster Nightfall runs when Shadow Price is the weekly weapon. You can also focus Shadow Price at Zavala in the Tower it using Nightfall Ciphers after acquiring.

PvE - Shadow Price god roll

This Shadow Price god roll is a real workhorse and with its damage and Magazine boosting perks, it can tangle with the most difficult of enemies in the game.

Shadow Price god roll - PvE
Barrel Corkscrew Rifling (Stability +5, Range +5, Handling +5)
Magazine Flared Magwell (Stability +5, Reload +15)
Perk 1 Overflow (Upon picking up Special or Heavy ammo: magazine gets refilled and overflowed from reserves. Maxes out at 100 percent increased magazine capacity. Activates even if stowed)
Perk 2 One for All (After damaging three separate enemies within three seconds of each: 35 percent increased damage for 10 seconds. Buff duration cannot be refreshed)
Origin Trait Vanguard’s Vindication (Weapon kills restore 7HP)
Masterwork Reload Speed (+10 when fully masterworked)
Mod Backup Mag (Magazine +6)

Begin with Corkscrew Rifling to boost key stats in Stability, Range, and Handling. These three increases combine to keep Shadow Price easily controlled when shooting down enemies and feeling snappy when called upon. Flared Magwell then comes in for added Stability to keep the reticle steady and gives a big boost to Reload to ensure the Magazine keeps getting topped up quickly to get straight back to a fight.

The main perks provide a great combination and this starts with Overflow. Picking up ammo bricks overflows the Magazine, effectively doubling the starting amount. Pair this with One for All in the final slot which provides a 35 percent damage boost upon hitting three separate targets. With the doubled Magazine size of Overflow, this major damage boost can be used to mow down waves of enemies or sustain some solid damage to larger targets.

PvP - Shadow Price god roll

Shadow Price is built upon a solid Precision Frame which brings in some great advantages in The Crucible which this god roll looks to exploit.

Shadow Price god roll - PvP
Barrel Smallbore (Stability +7, Range +7)
Magazine Accurized Rounds (Range +10)
Perk 1 Strategist (Weapon kills grant 10 percent Class ability energy. Activating your class ability briefly improves this weapon's stability)
Perk 2 Gutshot Straight (Aiming down sights increases body shot damage, decreases target acquisition. -20 percent auto aim cone size (no effect on magnetism), body shot damage increases 20 percent)
Origin Trait Vanguard’s Vindication (Weapon kills restore 7HP)
Masterwork Range or Handling (+10 when fully masterworked)
Mod Targeting Adjustor (Aim Assistance +5)

Start the god roll off with Smallbore, its boosts to Stability and Range allow for an easy to control weapon when firing in close quarters and keeps the aim feeling sticky when targeting foes at longer distances. Add Accurized Rounds for a further Range boost. With its Precision Frame allowing Recoil to be easily controlled, this means Shadow Price will be difficult for any opponent to dodge once shots are locked on.

The main perks of this god roll start with Strategist. This new perk introduced with The Final Shape adds Class Ability energy for every kill, keeping this ability up can be the difference between winning and losing any duel in The Crucible. Finish off with Gutshot Straight which ups body shot damage when ADSing. This makes non-critical hits even more effective and can ensure enemies have no chance when facing Shadow Price due to its critical hits and body shots both doing solid amounts of damage per hit.

Shadow Price gets a high quality refresh with PvE and PvP god rolls worth chasing down next time it rolls around in the Nightfall rotation. To follow all the unfolding events during The Final Shape check out the Guardian essential Destiny 2 complete strategy guide.
