Borrowed Time God Roll Guide
For PVE Corkscrew Rifling, Richochet Rounds, Feeding Frenzy, and Rampage would be a decent roll. Corkscrew Rifling increases range and stability, and slightly increases handling speed. Richochet Rounds increases stability and slightly increases range. Feeding Frenzy is where each rapid kill with the weapon progressively increases reload speed for a short time.
For PVP Chambered Compensator, Armour Piercing Rounds, Rangefinder and Tap The Trigger. Chambered Compensator increases stability, moderately controls recoil, and slightly decreases handling speed. Armor-piercing rounds increase range. Rangefinder increases range and Tap The Trigger grants a short period of increased stability and accuracy on initial trigger pull.
How to get Borrowed Time
To get this Borrowed Time, this is a potential drop from the end of Gambit matches. If you have a decent team you can run through Gambit matches pretty quickly. This season The Servant Leader is the main Gambit weapon, and that seems to drop more frequently than Borrowed Time, but you can still get it. Also, Xur has sold this weapon in the past, so keep an eye on his inventory each week, as he may well sell it again.
You can also pick up Gambit bounties from Drifter, he’s in the Annex in the Tower. You may get a chance at a weapon drop on completion of the bounties, or by leveling up Gambit ranks at Drifter.
