Widow’s Bite is a returning Sniper that’s come back to us in Season of Arrivals. This is a rapid-fire frame sniper and comes with some great rolls, and it’s not going to be sunset for over a year. The following is a guide for how to get Widow’s Bite in Destiny 2.
Widow’s Bite is an energy sniper that deals Solar damage, which also sits in that 140 archetype of Snipers (Beloved, Supremacy etc). The stats for this weapon include 55 for impact, 36 for range, 42 for stability, 69 for handling and 60 for reload speed. Its also got 5 in the mag as standard.
The curated roll comes with Quickdraw where this weapon can be drawn unbelievably fast and Firmly Planted where the weapon gains increased accuracy, stability and handling when firing while crouched. Its also got steady rounds for the increase in stability and slight decrease in range and Arrowhead Brake for an increase in recoil control and handling speed.
For PVE something like Demolitionist and Lead from Gold would be good and PVP you’re looking for Quickdraw and Firmly planted.
To get this weapon you want to head into the Prophecy Dungeon. I got this one to drop for me at the end of the first encounter, then again at the first secret chest in the heaven/hell section. This may be different for you as there’s a set loot pool for the dungeon, but head-on in there and good luck for getting this weapon to drop for you.
Let me know what you think of Widow’s Bite and how this sniper compares to others. Will you be picking this one up as a replacement for other 140s?
