For PVP, a Silicon Neuroma god roll will likely focus more on Handling. You want to be able to get that scope up to your eye quickly to be able to hit some fantastic shots.

Silicon Neuroma god roll - PVP
Barrel Arrowhead Brake (Recoil Direction +30, Handling +10)
Magazine Ricochet Rounds (Range +5, Stability +10)
Perk 1 Snapshot Sights (Faster time to aim down sights. Stability is increased. Stability +5)
Perk 2 Opening Shot (Improved accuracy and range on the opening shot of attack.
Origin Trait Vanguard's Vindication
Masterwork Handling
Mod Adept Handling / Quick Access Sling

Starting with Arrowhead Brake, this thing will fix the awful sideways kick, bringing the recoil into a straight up and down bounce. It also adds a bump to the Handling stat. For the magazine, Ricochet Rounds is a nice one for the Stability and Range bonus, but you could go pure Range with High-Caliber Rounds.

The PVP perks on this thing will be Snapshot Sights and Opening Shot. Both of these remain standout options, though, you could be forgiven for rolling with Perpetual Motion if you strafe while ADSing, as it will boost the Stability and Handling fruther. For the final column, Demolitionist is a decent alternative pick to help you get your grenade back. This is can be a game-changer in Trials, where abilities can control the flow of battle.

For the Masterwork, Handling is a neat pick. This will help get the gun into your hands quicker when hot swapping between your other weapon – which you might want to be a god roll Cantata-57 given that it’s an Energy weapon.

The Mod is going to come down to personal preference. Radar Tuner will get your radar back on the screen faster, which is useful if you’ve been hardscoping a lane for a beat. Alternatively, Quick Access Sling for the faster ready and stow speed, Targeting Adjuster for target acquisition, or even Sprint Grip for faster ready and ADS speed after sprinting. For those with an Adept version, slap on Adept Handling.

Silicon Neuroma god roll for PVE

Silicon Neuroma has a couple of nice perks for a PVE god roll. However, there is a standout couple of perks that synergize well with each other.

Silicon Neuroma god roll - PVE
Barrel Arrowhead Brake (Recoil Direction +30, Handling +10)
Magazine Appended Mag (Magazine +1)
Perk 1 Triple Tap (Rapidly landing precision hits returns one rount to the magazine)
Perk 2 Firing Line (This weapon deals increased precision damage when near two or more allies)
Origin Trait Vanguard's Vindication
Masterwork Reload Speed
Mod Adept Mag or Adept Big Ones / Backup Mag, Major Spec or Boss Spec

As above, Arrowhead Brake helps pull the recoil into a more vertical pattern. On the magazine front, Appended Mag will put one more round in the magazine, meaning you have another chance to proc Triple Tap.

This is where the magic happens. When Triple Tap activates, you’ll have two rounds in the magazine, which will now be under the effect of Firing Line (provided you're near allies). If you don't get Firing Line, Focused Fury is neat if you're by yourself or soloing content.

The Origin Trait, Masterwork, and Mod will all be personal preference. A Reload Speed Masterwork will help you take advantage of Triple Tap and Firing Line while the mod will be dependent upon if you have an Adept version. Throw on Adept Big Ones to handle Majors and Bosses.

The good news about finding your own Silicon Neuroma god roll is that it is one of the Nightfall weapon drops. Make sure you’re logging in and knocking out some Nightfalls to boost your chances of the perfect roll. Keep an eye on the GM Nightfall rotation so you know when you farm one.
