Armsday Roll Recommendations


  1. Danger Close, Rodeo, High-Caliber Rounds/Hand-Loaded/Rifled Barrel
  2. Last Resort, Counterbalance, High-Caliber Rounds/Hand-Loaded/Rifled Barrel
  3. Surrounded, Rodeo, High-Caliber Rounds/Fitted Stock/Rifled Barrel

This roll for the Arminius-D isn’t perfect, but it’s got a few things going on that could make it good in PvP. Counterbalance and Rifled Barrel are the stars here, combining for a predictable recoil pattern and competitive range. The problem is that you’ll still be stuck with a low stability stat. If you’re looking for something in PvE, wait until another week.


  1. Army of One, Glass Half Full, Single-Point Sling/Speed Reload/Braced Frame
  2. Crowd Control, Rangefinder, Single-Point Sling/Hand-Loaded/Braced Frame
  3. Partial Refund, Focus Fire, Snapshot/Hand-Loaded/Smallbore

Roll #2 adds some balanced stat boosts to the Zarinaea-D. Rangefinder and Braced Frame bring range and stability to solid levels at the cost of some reload speed, while Crowd Control increases DPS in PvE and, to a lesser extent, PvP. This is just a solid roll; if you’re looking for the perfect PvE primary, you’ll need to wait for a combination of Spray and Play and Army of One/Crowd Control.


  1. Fitted Stock/Oiled Frame, Lightweight/Injection Mold, Rangefinder
  2. High-Caliber Rounds/Casket Mag, Speed Reload/Reinforced Barrel, Partial Refund
  3. High-Caliber Rounds/Appended Magazine, Snapshot/Smallbore, Rodeo

Roll #1 brings some decent stat increases to the table. Fitted Stock, Injection Mold and Rangefinder make up a solid trio of boosts for PvP. However, that’s about all that’s going on here. If you want something interesting for PvE, you’ll need to hold off on burning this package.


  1. Counterbalance, Spray and Play, High-Caliber Rounds/Armor-Piercing Rounds/Injection Mold
  2. Surplus, Who’s Next?, High-Caliber Rounds/Armor-Piercing Rounds/Injection Mold
  3. Private Eye, Partial Refund, High-Caliber Rounds/Armor-Piercing Rounds/Injection Mold

In the new Wrath of the Machine Raid, ammo conservation is key. In the final fight, you’ll want every ammo brick to count for as much as it can. That’s why roll #2 with Surplus is the best we’ve got this week. However, while Surplus is nice, it would help for the gun itself to be better for when you actually need to use it, so you may benefit from waiting for the perfect roll on this one. It’s possible to get a Tamar-D with Surplus, Spray and Play for faster reloads and Perfect Balance. Keep that in mind as your dream roll.

Uzume RR4

  1. Performance Bonus, High-Caliber Rounds/Reinforced Barrel, Underdog/Battle Runner
  2. Performance Bonus, High-Caliber Rounds/Injection Mold, Unflinching/Last Resort
  3. Outlaw, High-Caliber Rounds/Hand-Laid Stock, Life Support/Underdog

Here’s a decent PvP roll for the Uzume RR4. Performance Bonus and Unflinching are key for ammo conservation and follow-up shots in PvP, while Injection Mold’s stability and handling bonus is great in both PvE and PvP. It’s a simple roll on a unique Sniper Rifle.


Next Week’s Orders

Weapon Type Impact Notable Stat
SUROS ARI-41 Auto Rifle Medium AA (72)
SUROS ARI-45 Auto Rifle Highest Range (48)
Uffern HC4 Hand Cannon Medium-High Stability (70)
Lyudmila-D Pulse Rifle Highest Range (63)
Tamar-D Sniper Rifle Medium Reload (66)


This is a Monte Carlo style auto rifle coming in at a whopping 68 base stability. Its range is about as low as we’ve seen at 17 though, so this gun will absolutely depend on range perks to have any use outside of close range PvE. Other than that, it has high Aim Assistance (72) and decent reload speed (54), so we’ll be keeping a close eye on the rolls next week.


This is a slower rate of fire Auto Rifle with a very balanced, middle-of-the-pack stat blend. Overall, it will need a boost to stability in order to become a reliable Crucible threat, but it’s base 48 range should keep it viable in most engagements.


The Tamar-D is a medium-impact Sniper Rifle. If you like sniping in PvE, order one of these! Hakke snipers can roll with Surplus, which really helps with ammo scarcity in PvE. Hakke’s scopes are a bit different than the ones offered by the Vanguard and Crucible Quartermasters, so you may have to adapt to use this gun in high-stakes PvP.

Uffern HC4

This Omolon Hand Cannon has a unique impact archetype, right below the highest but still higher than the Hawkmoon and Fatebringer. The gun looks and feels nice due to Omolon’s design and the base stability of 70, but we’re seriously worried about the low base range of 24. Hopefully there are some range perks offered next week.


With a solid roll, this gun can still do some work in PvP as a legendary primary. It has base range of 63 and stability of 54, so we’ll want to preserve the range while increasing stability to laser-like levels, and a reload perk like Feeding Frenzy would be icing on the cake. Counterbalance is going to be the key, as Hakke Pulse Rifles have an awkward recoil pattern that needs to be corrected for maximum accuracy.
