Destiny 2: Doom of Chelchis King's Fall Scout Rifle God Roll Guide

Discover the god roll for the Doom of Chelchis in this guide, one of Destiny 2's newest and best Scout Rifles.

Coming with Destiny 2’s introduction to the classic King’s Fall Raid is a selection of new weapons and armor with unique perks and some of the most potent rolls in the game. The Doom of Chelchis Scout Rifle is a Void powerhouse with perk combinations never before seen and somewhat of a more traditional bent.

It’s good in both PvE and PvP, and here are the rolls you want for both, with primary and secondary choices. 

Doom of Chelchis Scout Rifle PvE God Roll

There are multiple fantastic PvE rolls on the Doom of Chelchis, but one stands above the rest for its potential and power. If you don’t manage the best, there are plenty of standard options as well.

Barrel: Arrowhead Brake, Corkscrew Rifling

Range isn’t a huge issue with Scout Rifles: overall usability is much more important. Arrowhead Brake offers a solid increase to weapon Handling, making it smoother to ready, stow, and use the Doom of Chelchis. Corkscrew Rifling is an entirely acceptable alternate, offering a little bit of Stability, Handling, and Range. That last bit isn’t essential, of course, but nice to have all the same.

Magazine: Accurized Rounds, Tactical Mag

There aren’t as many usability options in the Doom of Chelchis’ magazine selection, so it comes down to Accurized Rounds and its good boost to Range or Tactical Mag’s Stability and Reload Speed bonus. Tac Mag’s one extra bullet means less with the Runneth Over Origin Trait, as you can overflow the Doom of Chelchis’ magazine depending on how many teammates you have around you.

PvE Trait 1: Firefly, Explosive Rounds

There is no reason to take anything less than Firefly for your first Trait on the Doom of Chelchis. The massive Solar explosion on a precision kill and Outlaw-level buff to Reload Speed has always made this Trait invaluable. If you can’t land Firefly, Explosive Rounds is a fantastic secondary option, ensuring more consistent damage at any range.

PvE Trait 2: Dragonfly, Frenzy

Consider yourself set if you can get your hands on a Firefly/Dragonfly Doom of Chelchis. The dual explosions can clear whole crews of trash mobs and stagger others after robbing them of half their health. Frenzy is a more comfortable, if less flashy, option, providing a 15% damage boost and enormous bonuses to both Handling and Reload Speed as long as it’s active.

Doom of Chelchis Scout Rifle PvP God Roll

Scout Rifles have long been in a weird place in Destiny 2 PvP, but the Doom of Chelchis fares better than most other options, especially with the perks presented here.

Barrel

Both PvE options work just fine in PvP.

Magazine

PvE’s Magazine perks are great in PvP, as well.

PvP Trait 1: Explosive Rounds, Vorpal Weapon

Explosive Rounds are a terror in PvP, inflicting heavy flinch and shaking their victim’s screen, which can throw off anyone’s aim. The extra damage unaffected by range is a nice bonus. Vorpal Weapon is more situational in PvP, but additional damage against enemy Supers can be crucial as more and more of them become harder to deal with.

PvP Trait 2: Frenzy, Eye of the Storm

Damage buffs are always welcome in PvP, and while the Doom of Chelchis doesn’t have the likes of Swashbuckler or Kill Clip, Frenzy is a worthy substitute that activates regardless of the range of your engagement. Eye of the Storm is a good secondary choice, adding Handling and Accuracy as your health gets lower, helping ensure you come out the victor in a contested engagement.

Getting your hands on any of the rolls presented here will make your Doom of Chelchis a monster. Which you choose depends on how you want to use the weapon, but even the more traditional choices are effective in almost any engagement.
