Season of the Seraph

How to get the Ikelos SMG V1.0.3 (Season of the Seraph) Plus God Roll Guide in Destiny 2

The Ikelos SMG has returned in Destiny 2, and it’s got some upgrades and a new Origin Trait. This was already a fan favourite weapon, but with these changes it’s going to shoot right to the top of the most wanted list in Season of the Seraph. Today I am going to check out the perks, the stats, the god rolls to chase for PVE and PVP, plus look at how to get the Ikelos SMG v1.0.3 in Destiny 2.

Before we get into the guide let me know what you think of the new and improved Ikelos SMG v1.0.3 and let me know your favourite roll combinations.

How to get the Ikelos SMG v1.0.3

To get this SMG you are going to need to find Rasputin’s nodes which are found in hidden locations around the solar system.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Pick up your Resonance Amp from the opening mission of Season of Seraph
  • Collect Seraph Key Codes from activities (like Vanguard Ops, Story missions, Crucible and Gambit)
  • Run the new Season of the Seraph activity Heist Battlegrounds – launching from the H.E.L.M.
  • Pick up the Resonate Stem from the chests at the end
  • Combine 4 Resonant Stems with the Resonance Amp to get your location.

Once you have your location, then make your way there, and collect your loot from the Rasputin Node.

There is a chance you’ll get a red border version of the weapon when it drops from the node. If you go to the H.E.L.M. you can also buy Ikelos weapons from Clovis Bray, our Seasonal Vendor for Season of the Seraph. You can upgrade the perks on the table at Clovis Bray to access more Ikelos weapon features, plus you can give yourself a chance at more red bordered versions of the weapons.

Once you have 5 red border versions of the weapon, you’ll be able to unlock the pattern and then craft your very own version of the Ikelos SMG v1.0.3 at the Enclave, on Savathun’s Throne World.
