Far Future is a new sniper added into the game as part of Season of the Chosen. This is a very useful Sniper, which could be seen as a good replacement for Adored, given its similarity in stats. Today I am going to have a look at the weapon stats and perks, the god rolls for PVE and PVP plus how to get Far Future in Destiny 2.
Far Future is a Legendary Energy Sniper Rifle with an Adaptive Frame meaning it has a well-rounded grip, reliable and sturdy. Looking at the stats we have Impact 70, Range 53, Stability 53, Handling 47, Reload Speed 48, Rounds Per Minute 90 with Magazine 4.
Far Future Perk Pool
In terms of the perk combinations, there’s plenty of good ones here including Wellspring, Demolitionist, Thresh, Multi kill Clip, Opening Shot and Frenzy for the 4th slot. In the 3rd slot we have Surplus, Quickdraw, Moving Target, SlideshotAutoloading Holster and Lead from Gold. The one that stands out to be missing is Snapshot Sights, which would normally be a go-to perk for Snipers in the Crucible.
Far Future God Rolls
For PVP Quickdraw and Opening Shot would be a decent roll and for PVE Surplus and Frenzy would be good. Other popular rolls out there in the community at the moment include Moving Target and Wellspring which would be good for PVP, Autoloading Holster and Thresh which is more of a PVE roll.
How to get Far Future
This is a random drop from the end of Battlegrounds activities. Once you run through to the end and beat the boss you can smash the loot crate with the Hammer of Proving and you’ll have a chance at a drop for this weapon. You can also target this one through Umbral Engrams and the Prismatic Recaster.
Comparing to other Snipers
This is a similar sniper to Adored, the pursuit weapon from Season of the Hunt. It’s an adaptive frame like Adored and is also 90 rpm with 4 in the magazine. It has similar stats with the same impact and slightly more range with +2, more handling at +4 and less stability at -4. It’s got more reload speed +4. The only thing that is missing is Snapshot Sights. If you can get Quickdraw and Opening Shot then I’d give that one a go. One big advantage this has over Adored is that it’ll be relevant for longer, given it came out a season later baring in mind sunsetting of weapons.
