Annual Skate is a new hand cannon introduced in Season of the Lost. This is a 140 rpm hand cannon, which is currently the best of the bunch given the nerf to 120 hand cannons, so it’s worth checking out rolls on this one when it drops for you in-game. Today I am going to check out the stats, the perks, the god rolls to chase for PVE and PVP, plus how to get Annual Skate in Destiny 2.
Annual Skate is a Legendary Energy Hand Cannon that fires solar damage with an Adaptive Frame meaning it has a well-rounded grip, and it’s reliable and sturdy. Looking at the stats we have Impact 84, Range 46, Stability 54, Handling 52, Reload Speed 44, Rounds Per Minute 140, Magazine 10.
Annual Skate Godroll Guide
When comparing this to Dire Promise or other 140 Hand Cannons, Annual Skate isn’t going to win any competitions, however, it does have some decent rolls which can make it competitive. Outlaw and Surplus are decent, plus Dragonfly and Time Payload are good… although Wellspring is a decent perk too on this.
For PVE Steady Hand HCS, Tactical Mag, Surplus, Dragonfly would be a good roll. Steady Hand HCS increases stability and increases handling speed. Tactical Mag slightly increases stability, increases reload speed, slightly increases magazine size. USrplus increases handling, reload, and stability for each fully charged ability and then finally Dragonfly creates elemental damage explosions.
For PVP Fastdraw HCS, Accurized Rounds, Outlaw, Timed Payload would be good. Fastdraw HCS greatly increases handling and slightly increases stability, accurized rounds then increases range. With Outlaw, kills greatly decrease reload time, and finally Timed Payload projectiles attach to enemies and then explode after a short duration.
How to get Annual Skate
To get this hand cannon it’s a random drop from activities, and it’s in the world loot pool, meaning it can drop from Strikes, Crucible, Gambit, and other activities like Public events, nightfalls, Trials, all kinds of events in Destiny 2. The downside is there’s no 100% way for this to drop for you, but the upside is you have more opportunities, it’s just a random drop so you are at the mercy of Destiny’s RNG.
