Destiny 2: How to Get Hung Jury SR4

The Hung Jury remains a fantastic scout rifle option in Destiny 2. Find out how to get it and what god rolls to look out for with this guide.

The Hung Jury SR4 remains one of the better Legendary Scout Rifle options in Destiny 2, and while it’s also received a pair of perk refreshes since its initial release, adding it to your list of weapons hasn’t changed. Don’t expect the most consistent farm, nor a guarantee you get anything approaching what you might want as far as a god roll goes. But it’s now a bit more rewarding to go after weapons like this, thanks to updates added to its playlist. Here’s how to get Hung Jury SR4 in Destiny 2.

How to Get the Hung Jury SR4 in Destiny 2

To get the Hung Jury SR4, you’ll need to complete Nightfall activities at any difficulty. There’s no easy way to farm it. The base difficulty has a significantly lower chance of awarding the gun and is, unfortunately, the only matchmade version. Of course, it’s much easier than at Master or Grandmaster, so you can get runs done more quickly and without the need for the most optimal builds.

I actually prefer farming my Nightfall weapons this way, as it lets me focus less on the more hardcore farm methods and doing some people-watching. It’s always interesting to me to watch how other players, especially newer ones, approach higher-end content, even if it can be…frustrating at times.

Note that the Hung Jury SR4 isn’t available every week. Nightfall-specific weapons are on a rotation week-over-week and season-over-season, with new ones coming in and older ones phasing out as Bungie continually updates the meta and loot availability. If you want to know what to expect from your Nightfall loot, there are a couple of ways to check:

Hung Jury SR4 PvE God Rolls

There are decent options for Hung Jury god rolls for both PvE and PvP. The former focuses on maintaining as much consistency as possible, while the latter focuses on pure lethality. Here’s one of the god rolls you’ll want to look for to take on the enemies of humanity.

  • Barrel: Arrowhead Brake
  • Magazine: Tactical Mag
  • Slot 3 Trait: Rapid Hit
  • Slot 4 Trait: Firefly

This Hung Jury god roll gives the Scout Rifle solid all-around performance and one of the most powerful add-control perks available on a Primary weapon in Firefly. The community and I have loved Firefly since it came to the game with the Ace of Spades back in the Forsaken expansion, and it remains almost as effective today as it was then.

The larger elemental explosion and increased reload speed Firefly grants is hard to beat when fighting off lesser enemies, and with Rapid Hit, keeping the weapon topped off and improving its usability so long as you hit precision shots. Tactical Mag and Arrowhead Brake round out the controllability suite, ensuring every stat on the Hung Jury gets some love.

Hung Jury SR4 PvP God Rolls

Scout Rifles remain an awkward PvP choice, though with specific rolls, the Hung Jury can be an absolute menace.

  • Barrel: Corkscrew Rifling
  • Magazine: Accurized Rounds
  • Slot 3 Trait: Rapid Hit
  • Slot 4 Trait: Frenzy

Scout Rifles don’t need the extra range Accurized Rounds provides, but having it helps the Hung Jury compete even at Sniper Rifle ranges. Corkscrew Rifling and Rapid Hit combine to make the gun almost a laser beam, and I’ve gone with Frenzy here to cater to a more active playstyle, especially given Destiny 2‘s faster-paced current meta. Just don’t expect everyone to play by your rules.

And that’s how to get Hung Jury in Destiny 2 and the god rolls you should be on the lookout for. If you found this guide helpful, check out our other D2 guides.
