Eternal Blazon is a new energy scout rifle that’s been put into the game as part of Season of the Chosen. This is a lightweight scout rifle, meaning you’re going to be able to move around faster with this one, and it has some very interesting comparisons to Night Watch – one of the most popular scouts in Destiny 2 history. Today I am going to look at the weapon and the stats, the god rolls to chase and how to get Eternal Blazon in Destiny 2.
Eternal Blazon is an Energy Scout Rifle that deals Arc Damage. It’s a Lightweight Frame meaning Superb handling. Move faster with this weapon equipped. Looking at the stats we have Impact 60, Range 40, Stability 41, Handling 66, Reload Speed 61, Rounds Per Minute 200 and Magazine 16.
Night Watch is another Lightweight Frame Scout Rifle, but this one is in the Kinetic Slot. WHen we compare Eternal Blazon to Night Watch we have the same impact, slightly less range with -3, more stability with +1, slightly less handling at -2, slightly less reload speed with -1 and same rpm and magazine size. This is essetnially an Energy version of Nightwatch, so if you like that Scout Rifle then this one could be for you.
Eternal Blazon Perks and God Rolls
For PVE Full Auto and Kill Clip would be good. Full auto is fairly self explanatory and the then Kill Clip gives a damage boost by reloadig after a kill. Rapid Hit and Thresh is another good PVE roll where Rapid Hit increases stability and reload speed and thresh gives you a small amount of Super Energy.
For PVP Quickdraw and Rangefinder would be a decent roll. Range is always good in PVP and quickdraw is going to get that scout rifle into your hands nice and quickly. Killing Wind and Disruption Break might also be a good one to look out for.
How to get Eternal Blazon
To get this one it’s a random drop from activities in Season of the Chosen. You can get this through Umbral Engram Focusing too. I’ve had luck with this dropping for me during Season of the Chosen, so focus those Umbral Engrams and hopefully you’ll get a good roll too.
Next up, I want to have a look at the lore. Much like the other weapons this season, there’s some really interesting stuff in here.
Eternal Blazon Lore
“But this eternal blazon must not be to ears of flesh and blood.”
It was a warm night in the Last City. A gentle breeze rolled through the streets, ruffling treetops and bearing choirs of cicadas. On a night like this, even the most chronic of insomniacs could achieve a sound, dreamless sleep—all they’d need do was lay their head down and breathe deep.
Except for Zavala. He preferred to spend a night like this walking through the gardens. “Nothing better than a midnight stroll. Right, Targe ?” he remarked quietly to the Ghost floating over his shoulder.
Targe bobbed silently in the breeze. In his opinion, a full eight hours of sleep would’ve been vastly better, especially for the beleaguered commander. But, while some Ghosts felt giving advice was part of their calling, he did not. So he said nothing.
His disapproval was felt regardless. “I know, I should rest.” Zavala closed his eyes and inhaled. The night air was fragrant with fresh blooms and petrichor. “But I’d argue this counts.”
Targe remembered when this acre was first dug out for planting, back when the City was little more than a sprawl of encampments. They had just returned from a grueling patrol, but as soon as Zavala saw the others digging, he dropped his weapons and picked up a shovel.
Saladin gave him a long lecture about the importance of rest and recovery, but he just stubbornly kept on digging. “I’d like to sow some life for once,” he said. Targe could still picture the look on the Iron Lord’s face in that moment, flickering between pride and exasperation. It was in that moment that he, too, picked up a shovel.
“We’ve come so far,” Zavala murmured in the present. “Sacrificed so much.”
Again, Targe said nothing. They had indeed. As they passed under a tree, the cicadas tucked in its branches went still. For a few seconds, the only noise was the crunch of boots on the gravel path. Once Zavala and Targe were a few yards away, the cicadas resumed their melodic thrumming.
“It amazes me sometimes that I’ve survived this long.” Zavala looked up, his pupils reflecting the bone-white orb of the Traveler above. “All thanks to you.” His words came out so soft, and it was hard to tell if they were an accusation or gratitude.
Targe tilted up towards the Traveler too. What could he say? It was his duty to resurrect his Guardian. More than that, it was his purpose. Not one he had chosen, but then again, neither had Zavala.
A silence fell, deeper than before. Ghost and Guardian stared up at the opaque moon, their thoughts synchronized around the same question:
“Are you watching over us? Or are we on our own?”
