Rufus’s Fury is an auto rifle added to Destiny 2 as part of the Root of Nightmares raid, and it’s quickly become one of the best, and most sought-after weapons in the game. It’s a rapid-fire frame that deals Strand damage, so works great with your strand builds. Today I want to dive into the details, check out the stats, the perks, the god rolls to chase for PVP and PVE plus look at how to get Rufus’s Fury in Destiny 2.
How to get Rufus’s Fury
To get this one you are going to need to go into the Root of Nightmares Raid in Destiny 2 Lightfall. It can drop from the 3rd and final encounter, and once you get hold of it you can get it from the secret chests in the raid too. Collect 5 red border versions of the weapon and you’ll be able to craft it at the Enclave on Savathun’s Throne World.
Rufus’s Fury is a Legendary Kinetic Auto Rifle with a rapid-Fire Frame meaning deeper ammo reserves, plus it deals Strand damage. Slightly faster reload when magazine is empty. Looking at the stats we have Impact 18, Range 34, Stability 58, Handling 41, Reload Speed 50, Airborne Effectiveness 22, Rounds Per Minute 720, Magazine 55.
This one comes with the Origin Trait 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. Therefore it’s good to pair this one with another raid weapon if possible.
