The Steady Hand god rolls in Destiny 2 make it one of the most dangerous guns for PvP. Although a new Season is coming to Destiny 2, Iron Banner should remain unchanged. The Steady Hand is an Iron Banner gun introduced in Beyond Light for Iron Banner, and it's already become a favorite for many players. So, what rolls should you be looking for in your Steady Hand?
Steady Hand God Roll in Destiny 2 Explained
- Appended or Extended Mag
Masterwork: Reload Speed or Range
It's worth noting that The Steady Hand is a gun best used in PvP, but if you're adamant about using it in PvE, here's what you should be looking for. One absolute perk you must have on The Steady Hand is Outlaw. Being an aggressive frame Hand Cannon, The Steady Hand has extra range and hits like a truck, but has a poor reload speed. The Outlaw perk, which enables a super quick reload after getting a precision kill, should fix that. For the second perk, you'll probably want to get the Swashbuckler perk if you like doing most of your damage with your weapons, as it increases your damage for every kill you get. Another alternative, for players that have an ability based build, is the Wellspring perk, which makes kills from the gun recharge a player's abilities. For the magazine, getting an appended mag or extended mag, both of which will increase the gun's magazine size, is the way to go. The ideal Masterwork is Reload Speed or Range.
- Zen Moment
- Moving Target
- Ricochet Rounds
Masterwork: Range or Stability
Now, we're getting to the spicy parts of this gun. With the rate of fire buff Bungie gave to Aggressive Hand Cannons, the Steady Hand is now one of the better guns to take into the Crucible. So, what rolls should you be looking for here? It depends on the playstyle. In general players should look for Ricochet Rounds for their magazine. But for the perks, there's some variety for players. Those who utilize their special weapon a lot, should have Quickdraw, which allows players to instantly draw out the weapon when switching to it, which is a must. But for players who use double primaries or will mostly stick to the Steady Hand in the Crucible, then Zen Moment or Moving Target, the first of which increases stability when doing damage, and the second of which increases target acquisition when aiming down sights, are good choices. For the second perk, Swashbuckler is the best choice to increase damage output, but Snapshot Sights and Mulligan are useful too. Snapshot sights allow players to instantly aim down sights while Mulligan has a chance to return a missed bullet to the magazine. Another intriguing option is the Iron Grip perk, which heavily increases stability at the cost of reload speed. This perk is mainly for players who really struggle with recoil, and should be paired with a backup Mag mod to increase their magazine size and lessen the impact of the slow reload speed. The best Masterwork for the Steady Hand would probably be Range or Stability.
The first chance to get The Steady Hand will be Feb. 23, as that will be the first Iron Banner of Season of the Chosen. Players can get one guaranteed drop from completing the Slaying Dragons questline, but after that, there's no way to target farm this gun, so players will have to amass tokens and complete bounties to get it. From there, it's a matter of luck, but now you'll know what rolls to look for in your Steady Hand.
