Season of the Risen

How to get Silicon Neuroma (Legendary Sniper Rifle) Plus God Roll Guide in Destiny 2

Silicon Neuroma has returned to Destiny 2, and its part of the Nightfall weapon drops this season. This is a slow-firing, hard-hitting Sniper Rifling, plus it comes with some very interesting and versatile origin traits, meaning this sniper is going to come in very useful in high-end PVE content this season. Today I am going to check out Silicon Neuroma, look at the stats, the god roll guide for PVE and PVP plus how to get Silicon Neuroma in Destiny 2.

Silicon Neuroma is a Legendary Kinetic Sniper Rifle with an Aggressive Frame meaning high damage, high recoil. Looking at the stats we have Impact 90, Range 77, Stability 25, Handling 32, Reload Speed 34, Rounds Per Minute 72, Magazine 3.

Silicon Neuroma was in the original Destiny 2, as it was Asher Mir’s Weapon, who was our vendor on Io at the time. This was a great sniper back then because it was quick and it packed a serious punch. The sniper has returned to us in Witch Queen, and it’s been given a perk revamp to update it to the standards of the sandbox we have today. A lot has changed since the original Destiny 2, and Silicon Neuroma is back to join in the party.

As a 72 RPM sniper, this is in the slower range of the sniping family. If you are comfortable with that, then this is a sniper worth checking out. It does have a wide array of perks, so you can take this into PVP if you want, but it does have the Vanguard’s Vindication origin trait, which heals you on every kill. That makes it good in PVP, but deadly in PVE. It also has the Stunning Recovery origin trait, which heals you, improves recovery, and partially reloads your magazine after stunning a champion. That makes it very useful for high-end PVE content.

How to get Silicon Neuroma

To get this Sniper you have to run Nightfall Strikes when Silicon Neuroma is available as a reward that week. It’s available this week, 1st – 8th March 2022, then it’ll be available later in the season. We don’t have a full picture of the weapon rotation at the moment, but when we do I’ll be sure to let you know. Silicon Neuroma drops more regularly on higher difficulty nightfalls, and really you want to be running Legend or Master Nightfalls for a chance for it to drop.

Early on in the season, this is going to be tricky as you have to level up to at least 1530 to stand a chance in the Nightfall, although later in the season when you are leveled accordingly it’s going to be much easier. The Adept version of Silicon Neuroma will be available once the Grandmaster Nightfalls get added to the game in a few week’s time. For now, your best bet is to run legend or master nightfalls and you should get a drop of Silicon Neuroma in no time at all.
