Cartesian Coordinate has made a comeback this season, given the new fusion rifle meta in Season of the Lost. Due to the artifact mods this season, Cartesian Coordinate is one of the best weapons in the game right now, and everyone is looking for the best roll whether you like PVE or PVP content. Today I am going to check out the weapons, its stats, and god roll guide plus look at the best ways to farm this weapon in Destiny 2.
Cartesian Coordinate is a Legendary Energy Fusion Rifle with a Rapid-Fire Frame meaning Deeper ammo reserves. Slightly faster reload when the magazine is empty. Looking at the stats we have Impact 55, Range 29, Stability 33, Handling 55, Reload Speed 51, Charge Time 460, and Magazine 7.
The meta this season is either a Fusion Rifle or Linear Fusion rifle with the artifact mod Particle Deconstruction. This can be found in the final column at the bottom, and it’s going to make melting bosses with Fusion or Linear Fusions VERY EASY this season, so I would prioritize getting hold of it ASAP. Cartesian Coordinate is particularly good in the Vault of Glass and you can melt bosses with the help of a few mods.
Cartesian Coordinate God Roll Guide
For PVE Cleanshot IS, Liquid Coils, Feeding Frenzy, and Vorpal Weapon. Cleanshot IS increases handling speed and slightly increases range. Liquid Coils increases impact damage, then Feeding Frenzy increases reload speed after rapid kills, and finally, Vorpal Weapon increases damage against bosses, vehicles and Guardians in their super.
For PVP Red Dot Micro, Enhanced Battery, Under Pressure, and High-Impact Reserves would be a decent roll. Red Dot Micro increases range and handling speed, always good for PVP. Enhanced Battery increases the magazine size so you can kill more Guardians. Under Pressure improves accuracy and stability as the magazine gets lower, finally, we have High-Impact Reserves where rounds at the end of the magazine deal more damage.
How to get Cartesian Coordinate
To get this one it’s a random world drop legendary weapon, so you can get this from legendary engrams, drops at the end of activities like strikes, crucible and gambit, plus when you open up loot chests.
Keep an eye out on Banshee-44 in the Tower, he sells a bunch of legendary weapons every Tuesday, so he might be selling it. Also, you can turn in materials at Banshee-44 if he hasn’t got it, and he may give it to you as a reward. Xur also sells legendary weapons at the weekend, so go and check him out and see what he is selling. He recently sold very good rolls of Dire Promise and Main Ingredient, so Xur’s value has rocketed in recent weeks. I do weekly guides for both Xur and Bashee-44 on the channel, so subscribe and hit the bell to never miss an update.
Finally, you can focus Umbral Engrams at the Prismatic Recaster in the H.E.L.M. Check out the Season of the Splicer focusing option and then Worldly Weapons or Shock Trooper. You are going to need the splicer currency decrypted data for this, but with Shock Trooper you have a 50/50 chance of getting the weapon, so this could be the best way to get the weapon in the game right now.
Cartesian Coordinate Lore
Where does one end and the other begin?
All was quiet in the Gulch, save for the occasional chirp of birds and the gentle trickle of the river. It might’ve been peaceful, Chalco Yong thought as she crept along the bank if it wasn’t so damn eerie. Where were the Cabal and their noisome injection rigs? Where were the thundering Pike gangs? Evidently taking the day off, just when it was most inconvenient.
The Hidden agent crouched, running her hand over the smooth stones cluttering the shore. She was hoping to have good news for her next report. Ikora looked so tired at their last check-in.
No wonder. Even before the Pyramids arrived, it felt like their enemies were multiplying at the same rate their allies were decreasing. Now, with four celestial bodies stolen out of the sky, that trend seemed to be accelerating.
And here she was, following a tenuous lead on the whereabouts of the infamous Light Kell into a dead zone.
She briefly considered turning her radio on and checking in, but then she saw it: the ideal skipping stone, palm shaped and perfectly worn. She picked it up, and with a well-timed flick, sent it spinning across the water. The mirror image of blue sky and pine tree tops rippled once, twice, six times before gravity outweighed momentum, pulling the stone beneath the surface.
Suddenly, a frenetic rustling broke out all around her. The trees quivered as hundreds of birds burst forth, shrieking in alarm as they circled in the sky. Chalco whipped around, rifle at the ready, but there was no one. She slowed her breathing, ears open for the telltale whine of speeding Pikes.
The wispy hairs on the back of her neck stood at attention as the air crackled with electricity. A great rumbling threw Chalco off her feet. She rolled as she hit the ground. The second shockwave arrived while she was facedown—a louder and more definitive thud that caused the rocks to jump up and fall back down with a clatter.
Silence returned. When she lifted her head, all seemed as it had moments ago…
…except for the once-clear sky, now streaked with aurorae of many colors.
Chalco leapt up and ran for the ravine wall. She scaled it, then the nearest pine in a matter of seconds. A risky move considering the possibility of aftershock, but she needed height.
It wasn’t until she reached the wavery top branches that she saw it. Cresting over the tree line was the Shard of the Traveler, bleeding polychrome rays. Chalco turned her gaze up, following the arc into the stratosphere. What was happening?
Keeping her eyes fixed on the sky, she flipped on her radio. Immediately, Eris Morn’s voice echoed over the Vanguard’s public frequency: “This will not be the end. It will be an escalation.”
A flash, piercing in its brilliance, lit up the southeastern sky. Chalco braced herself against the tree, squeezing her eyes shut. When she opened them, the sky had returned to clear blue and the Shard had returned to its dim, jagged state.
“Huh,” she said aloud to no one.
