When it comes to player-vs-environment scenarios and other crucial moments in Destiny 2, shotguns are the first choice of most players. You can effortlessly dominate the battle by equipping the right Shotgun with first and second perks. Most shotguns offer a random roll giving you the ability to kill your enemies in Destiny 2 with a single bullet. Although they are best for short ranges, you can extend the barrel and install other upgrades for medium-range kills. This article features information about The Comedian Destiny 2 shotgun, a great, legendary weapon to use in the game.
Although the traits of The Comedian shotgun are a few, they have made it a go-to choice weapon in the game. You will get some ammo back after killing an enemy, which means you will never be short on the stock. If everything goes according to the plan, you will be the new king of PVE in Destiny 2 quickly but it also works in another game mode. Use the kill tracker to keep track of your kills with the shotgun and compare it with an older report.
How to get The Comedian in Destiny 2?
As you already know that the Comedian is a legendary shotgun in Destiny 2, so getting your hands on one will be a difficult task. This gun drops on certain weeks and in particular frequencies only, so you have to wait for the right time to buy the Shotgun from the loot table.
The only difficulty is the availability of the Shotgun at the loot table, as you can get it in a few clicks once it comes on sale. The difficulty level of the Nightfall strike doesn’t matter as long as you do them when the gun is available.
Pro players suggest that you opt for high nightfall strikes instead of low-level ones based on damage assessments. This will increase your chance of getting the gun from a random drop. But you can do multiple low-level nightfall strikes if your character isn’t powerful enough for those high-level strikes. You have the option to go solo on your hunt for the Shotgun or join a team to accomplish the task with other players.
The version of Shotgun that you will get depends on the difficulty level of your nightfall strike. Those who have attempted the grandmaster nightfall strike have got the Adept version of The Comedian. If you have some extra money and don’t know what to do with it in the game, go to the Vanguard quartermaster to buy this Shotgun and avoid all the hassle of manually grinding for it.
Stats of The Comedian in Destiny 2
The Comedian is a pretty good weapon with an ever-increasing firing rate and power in terms of stats. You can fire 55 rounds in a minute with a base-level Comedian shotgun, but each death increases the rate of fire. The magazine capacity is four which can be a problem when facing multiple enemies but assault mag can solve this problem.
To cope with the low magazine capacity issues, you can follow the principle or reload when you want to, not when you have. It has an impact value of 85, which is pretty good, but its range is limited to 35 only. The Shotgun offers very high recoil as the handling points are 37, so you have to aim perfectly, or you will miss the shot.
The Comedian Upgrades
The Comedian shotgun comes up with five upgrade columns, and you equip perks in each column to upgrade the Shotgun to increase its damage and other stats. Perks are different for each column, and you can equip a few perks from each column.
Void damage, arc damage, and solar damage are the three perks of the first column, and they mainly increase the overall damage of the weapon. The second column is for muzzle perks, and each perk has a different impact on recoil, range, and impact.
Smooth Ballistics, Linear Compensator, Field Choke, Accurized Ballistics, Soft Ballistics, and Aggressive Ballistics are the most commonly used second column perks. The third column features nine perks, and the Full auto perk is the first choice as it removes the reload sequence.
The four-column is all about the barrel, stock, and magazine to improve the reload speed, range, stability, and handling of the Shotgun. The fifth perk column also features eight randomly selected perks, and you can equip a perk according to your needs.
Best setup for God Roll
Full choke, corkscrew rifling, rifled barrel, and small-bore are the best barrel upgrades for God Roll. The rifled barrel increases the range of the weapon at the cost of reload speed. Choose assault mag, appended mag, or tactical mag as weapon’s magazine. Equip subsistence or ensemble in the first perk column and vorpal weapon or the trench barrel in the second.
Perks for The Comedian Destiny 2 God Rolls
To achieve a curated roll, random rolls, or god roll of this Shotgun, equip some of the best perks, and pro players test all these perks in Destiny 2, so the chances of something going wrong are very low.
The god rolls Subsistence should be your priority for the first column as it refills your magazine with a small number of bullets from time to time. The roll subsistence is one of those good perks that eliminates the need to reload your weapon after each attack as the Subsistence perk has your back.
The ensemble is a relatively new perk for rolls in Destiny 2 but it is undoubtedly one of the best perks. It is a team-oriented perk, so only choose this perk if you are going in a battle with your friends. With this perk, the Shotgun’s handling and reload speed increase when you are near your team.
Lead from Gold/Genesis
If you are struggling with ammo, lead from Gold and genesis perks will save your day as they give you ammo resulting in infinite ammo in your bag. You need to break a shield to get ammo with the genesis perk. Lead from gold also grants some special ammo.
The hip-fire grip perk is a solid choice for those who want to improve their aim without any third-party aim assistance and do some precision hit targeting.
The bottomless grief is there for your god roll if you are the last alive member of your squad and need ammo to kill enemies. It refills the magazine with each kill, so you don’t have to reload the weapon anymore.
Vorpal Weapon or Trench Barrel
This is the second column perk for the God roll of the Comedian, and vorpal weapon or the trench barrel are the best choices for this column. After equipping the trench barrel as the second column perk, Melee gets a damage boost.
One for All, Thresh, Adrenaline Junkie, Unrelenting
One for All, Thresh, and adrenaline junkie perks are there if you don’t have any other choice, but you shouldn’t equip them if other perks are available. On the other hand, unrelenting is best for the god roll especially if you want to survive some extra time on the battlefield as this weapon grants health.
