Season of the Seraph

How to get Long Arm (Spire of the Watcher Scout Rifle) plus god roll guide in Destiny 2

Long Arm is a new Scout Rifle added to Destiny 2 in Season of the Seraph. This is related to Dead Man’s Tale, albeit in Legendary version, being a Tex Mechanica Scout Rifle, and it’s currently one of the most popular weapons in the game. Today I am going to look at the stats, the perks, the god rolls to chase for PVP and PVE, plus look at how to get Long Arm in Destiny 2.

How to get Long Arm

To get Long Arm in Destiny 2 you have to go through the Dungeon, Spire of the Watcher. This can be found on Savathun’s Throne world, next to the Enclave. You can get Long Arm as a random drop from the first encounter, which is where you have to scale the Tower itself. I believe this is the only place you can get the weapon, although once you get it in your loot pool you can also get it from the secret chests found in the Dunegon. While the second and third encounter need a few people to get this done in a timely manner, you can easily go in and farm the first encounter over and over again, plus it’s a good way to learn the mechanics for the dungeon.

Long Arm

Long Arm is a Legendary Energy Scout Rifle with an Aggressive Frame meaning high damage, high recoil. Looking at the stats we have Impact 100, Range 55, Stability 25, Handling 53, Reload Speed 45, Airborne Effectiveness 14, Rounds Per Minute 120, and Magazine 15.

The new Tex Mechanica weapons come with the Origin Trait Tex Balanced Stock. This is where damaging targets while firing from the hip increases handling, reload speed and movement speed while aiming down sights.

Long Arm God Roll Guide

The Long Arm Scout Rifle comes with some very nice perks, including Rapid Hit, Wellspring, Dragonfly, Explosive Payload to name a few. This is essentially a mini-DMT, so if you like Scout Rifles I think you’re going to like the Long Arm and find a set of perks combinations that work for you.

For PVE Corkscrew Rifling, Tactical Mag, Subsistence and Explosive Payload would be good.

  • Tactical Mag – Slightly increases stability, Increases reload speed, Slightly increases magazine size
  • Subsistence – Defeating targets partially reloads the magazine from reserves.
  • Explosive Payload – Projectiles create an area-of-effect detonation on impact.

  • Arrowhead Brake – Greatly controls recoil, Increases handling speed
  • Accurized Rounds – Increases range
  • Rapid Hit – Rapid precision hits temporarily increase stability and reload speed.
