Season of the Splicer

Destiny 2 – How to get Farewell (Legendary Sidearm)

Farewell is a new sidearm added to Destiny 2 in Season of the Splicer, this is a deadly Sidearm with loads of potential in both PVP and PVE. Today I am going to look at the stats, the perks and god rolls to chase as well as how to get the weapon.

Farewell Stats

Farewell is a Legendary Kinetic Sidearm with a Lightweight Frame meaning it has Superb handling. Move faster with this weapon equipped. Looking at the stats we have Impact 43, Range 26, Stability 46, Handling 68, Reload Speed 54, Rounds Per Minute 360 and Magazine 15.

Farewell Perks and God Rolls

This one can roll with the new perks found in Season of the Splicer. This includes Heating Up, where final blows with this weapon increase accuracy and stability and also improve vertical recoil. There’s Adrenaline Junkie where Grande Final blows grant bouns damage and handling for a moderate duration. We also have Tunnel Vision where reloading after defeating a target greatly increases target acquisition and aim down sights speed for a short duration.

The most popular rolls out there at the moment are Full Auto/Frenzy, Heating Up/Multikill Clip and Subsistence/Adrenlaine Junkie. For PVE Full Auto and Frenxy would be good, where as PVP Full Auto / Multikill Clip or perhaps Moving Target and Unreletning would be good rolls to chase.

Full auto is the stand out on this weapon and it turns this sidearm into an absolute beast in PVP. TrueVanguard, a great Destiny 2 streamer and content creator, put out a great video with some in depth PVP advice/tactics with this weapon, I highly recommend going to check that one out if you like PVP. I’m not going to try and give PVP advice, I’ll leave that to the pros.

How to get Farewell

To get this one it’s a random drop from the end of the Override activity. This is in the Conflux chest, and you will need a key code to open this one. To craft a key code you’ll need Ether, which you can get from running acitivities like Strikes, Gambit and Cruicble. Then simply craft the key code before via the Splicer Gauntlet in your quests tab to create the key to use on the chest. You can also focus Umbral Engrams min the Prismatic Recaster in Season of the Splicer to get Splicer loot.

Surprise Attack Mod

This is a great mod to use if you are enjoying using sidearms.

Surprise attack – While Charged with Light, reloading or readying a Sidearm will consume all stacks of Charged with Light and convert them into stacks of a major damage buff, which are depleted as you damage combatants with that Sidearm. But it does give you a minus 10 intellect.

To get this to work you do need to be charged with light, which you can get a couple of ways. There’s Taking Charge, the charged with Light mod or you could use Elemental Charge – one of the new Elemental Well mods. Surprise Attack is great as it doubles damage output on Sidearms.

Let me know what you think down in the comments, let me know waht rolls you got and also what you are chasing.
