How to get Koraxis’s Distress (Root of Nightmares Grenade Launcher) plus god roll guide in Destiny 2

Koraxis’s Distress is a power grenade launcher added to Destiny 2 as part of the Root of Nightmares Raid, introduced in Lightfall. This is a great power weapon, with excellent stats, a very useful origin trait, plus it’s a strand legendary weapon, meaning it’s going to be great for Strand builds. Today I want to have a closer look at Koraxis’s Distress, check out the stats, the perks, the god rolls to chase for PVP and PVE, plus how to get Koraxis’s Distress in Destiny 2.

How to get Koraxis’s Distress

To get this Legendary Grenade Launcher you’ll have to run the Root of Nightmares raid, which arrived as part of the Lightfall expansion. You can get this from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd encounter (which are Cataclysm, Scission and Zo’Aurc). Once you get the weapon you’ll also be able to get it from the secret chests found in the raid, however, it has to be in your loot pool before you can get it to drop there.

Koraxis’s Distress

Koraxis’s Distress is a Legendary Power Grenade Launcher with a Rapid-Fire Frame meaning it has deeper ammo reserves. Slightly faster reload when magazine is empty. Looking at the stats we have Blast Radius 20, Velocity 58, Stability 27, Handling 25, Reload Speed 28, Airborne Effectiveness 11, Rounds Per Minute 150, and Magazine 5.

The origin trait on the Root of Nightmares weapons is Harmonic Resonance. Equipping multiple weapons from this set grants this weapon increased reload speed and handling. It also deals increased damage versus Tormentors, Lucent Hive, and Guardians using their Supers.

Koraxis’s Distress God Roll Guide

For PVE you are looking for Hatchling and Reconstruction.

  • Hatchling – Precision final blows or rapidly defeating targets with a non-precision weapon spawns a Threadling at the target’s location.
  • Reconstruction – This weapon slowly reloads itself over time, up to double capacity.

For PVP you want Impulse Amplifier and Wellspring.

  • Impulse Amplifier – Massively increases projectile velocity, increases reload speed.
  • Wellspring – Kills with this weapon generate ability energy. This energy is divided between your uncharged abilities.

The best Koraxis’s Distress god roll in PvP is Impulse Amplifier and Wellspring. With that being said, you’re unlikely to use this weapon in the Crucible and there’s not all that many great perks for PvP.
