Destiny 2 – How to get Threaded Needle (Linear Fusion Rifle)

Threaded Needle is a new Linear Fusion Rifle added to the game as part of the Battlegrounds activity in Season of The Chosen. Today I am going to have a look at the weapon, the stats, the god rolls to chase for PVP and PVE plus how to get Threaded Needle in Destiny 2.

Threaded Needle is a Legendary Power Linear Fusion Rifle which is a Precision Frame meaning it fires a long-range precision energy bolt. This weapon’s recoil pattern is more predictably vertical. Looking at the stats we have Impact 41, Range 43, Stability 52, Handling 35, Reload Speed 28, Charge Time 533 and Magazine 5.

Threaded Needle perks and God Rolls

For PVE Clown Cartridge and Dragonfly would be a decent roll, plus this one is the most popular roll out there in the community at the moment. Clown Cartridge randomly overfills the ammo on reloading and Dragonfly creates elemental damage explosions on kills. Another good roll for PVE would be Rapid Hit and Vorpal Weapon, making this very useful against bosses for Legend Lost Sectors, Strikes, Nightfalls or Raids.

For PVP Killing Wind and Vorpal Weapon would be good, giving you that boost to mobility, range and handling for a short duration through Killing Wind. Vorpal Weapon is great for taking out Guardians in their supers. Rangefinder is another good perk for PVP.

How to get Threaded Needle

To get Threaded Needle it’s a random drop from the end of Battlegrounds, plus you get it at rank 30 on the season pass. You don’t have to unlock it from the season pass to get it, it is RNG based but you are guaranteed to get a roll from the season pass at rank 30.

Finally, let’s have a look at the lore.

Threaded Needle Lore

“Most of our advanced tech was first used against us by alien races. Time to return the favor.” —Lord Saladin

Ignovun, Chosen of the Cabal, spent all day receiving honors. After Empress Caiatl’s announcement, every Legionnaire in the land tank had come to jealously salute him for his promotion. It was the appointment of a lifetime.

Deep within the Halphas Electus, Ignovun oversaw his arena’s preparation. There was the hanging of Caiatl’s banners, the anointing of his ammunition, and the intonement of the Litany of the Chosen by an imperial mythkeeper. He was fitted for new armor that gleamed in the light. He was briefed on the protocols of the Rite, and the expectations of his victory.

But now, alone in the arena, doubt creeps into Ignovun’s thoughts. Ghaul believed that the strength of the smallmen was their Light. He reasoned that the power of the Traveler, like any weapon, could be stripped from the enemy and used against them. Clearly, he was wrong.

Ignovun believes differently. Their strength comes not from Light, but from death. The Guardians are already walking corpses, and yet they fight on. They have all died a thousand times, while Ignovun has yet to die even once. How can he defeat an opponent whom death cannot best?

Suddenly, the treacherous ravings of Ixel, the Far-Reaching did not seem so absurd. If the Cabal are to triumph over the smallmen, they will have to succeed where Ghaul failed. They will have to bring mortality to the Vanguard.

Ignovun knows that these musings will not save him. But he does not fear: if the smallmen can face death, then so can he.
