Destiny 2 – How to get the Compass Rose (Legendary Shotgun) plus God Roll Guide

The Compass Rose is a new shotgun added to Destiny 2 as part of Solstice of Heroes 2021. This is a great new Precision Frame Shotgun that has potential for both PVE and PVP, plus it looks damn good too. Today I am going to go through the stats, the god roll guide for PVP and PVE plus how to get Compass Rose in Destiny 2.

Compass Rose is a Legendary Energy Shotgun with a Precision Frame meaning this weapon’s recoil pattern is more predictably vertical. Looking at the stats we have Impact 70, Range 66, Stability 47, Handling 42, Reload Speed 53, Rounds Per Minute 65, and Magazine 5.

Compass Rose Godroll Guide

For PVE Rifled Barrel, Assualt Mag, Surplus, and Trench Barrel is a good roll to look out for. Rifled Barrel gives you can increase to the range, but a decrease to handling, Assault Mag improves stability and an increased rate of fire, surplus gives you increased reload, handling and stability for each fully charged ability and then trench barrel get increased damage, handling and reload speed after a melee hit.

For PVP Quickdraw, Snapshot Sights, Barrel Shroud and Light Mag would be good. Barrel Shroud gives you that increase in stability and handling, and Light Mag boosts reload speed and a slight increase in the range. Quickdraw gets the weapon in your hands nice and fast and Snapshot Sights makes it quicker to aim down sights.

How to get Compass Rose

You can get this weapon from the introduction quest found in Solstice of Heroes 2021. Speak to Eva in the Tower, run through the EAZ, and meditate at the Statue and you’ll be rewarded with the Compass Rose Shotgun.

To get repeats and random rolls, you will need to run through the new European Aerial Zone activity and open Solstice Packages. This can be found in the Tower and you’ll only be able to access this activity during the event which is from July 6th – August 10th, 2021.

The EAZ is a matchmade activity, free for all players, so it should be nice and easy to get your hands on the weapon. The only catch is you are going to need a bunch of Solstice Key Fragments to be able to open Solstice chests.

As you run through the EAZ activity you’ll defeat bosses and the more bosses you defeat, the more chests they will leave behind. You’ll need 15 Solstice Key Fragments to open a single package. You can get Solstice Key Fragments from playing the EAZ itself, but you can also get them from other activities in the game like:

  • Completing Eva Levante bounties
  • Crucible matches
  • Strike playlists
