Destiny 2 The Call God Roll guide: Best perks, perk pool, and how to farm it

Best perks for this Strand Sidearm.

The Call is one of the few Rocket-Assisted Frame Sidearms in Destiny 2, and a bunch of Guardians are farming for the God Roll after being introduced to the weapon in The Final Shape campaign.

While it’s not the greatest weapon for the Crucible and PVP in general, The Call is a fantastic gun for PVE activities because of its high damage output, quick reload speed, and other perks. It has a strong perk pool too, so it’s hard to get a bad roll. If you want the best possible God Roll for The Call, though, here’s what you should look out for when playing Destiny 2 The Final Shape.

The Call God Roll in Destiny 2

This is the PVE God Roll for The Call in Destiny 2.

  • Barrel: Quick Launch
  • Magazine: High-Velocity Rounds
  • Perk 1: Lead from Gold
  • Perk 2: Desperate Measures
  • Masterwork: Velocity

With Quick Launch and High-Velocity Rounds, you won’t have to worry as much about leading targets to hit them with this weapon’s rockets. Since The Call uses special ammo, Lead from Gold is the ideal first perk since it will keep your ammo reserves full. Pair that with Desperate Measures, which buffs overall damage, and you’ve got a God Roll on your hands.

The Call Perk Pool in Destiny 2

The Call can roll with most of the usual perks that you’d see on a weapon like this. Here’s a full breakdown of both perk columns and their possible rolls.

  • Perk 1: Demolitionist, Stats for All, Subsistence, Lead from Gold, Slice, Beacon Rounds, Strategist.
  • Perk 2: One for All, Desperate Measures, Adrenaline Junkie, Vorpal Weapon, Golden Tricorn, Multikill Clip, Hatchling.
  • Origin Trait: Dealer’s Choice

How to Farm The Call in Destiny 2 The Final Shape

The Call is a destination weapon for the Pale Heart, so it drops from any activities that take place there. Any slain enemies have a chance to drop this weapon, but aimlessly roaming around isn’t the most efficient farming strategy. We recommend playing through The Final Shape campaign and then grinding Overthrow, which is a repeatable activity within the Pale Heart.

Since it’s a destination weapon, there’s no way to target farm The Call other than grinding Pale Heart activities and hoping you get lucky. Thankfully, the other Pale Heart weapons are excellent as well and their Origin Trait, Dealer’s Choice, gets stronger if you have more of them equipped at the same time. While destination weapons are exciting, don’t forget to explore the Pale Heart to obtain powerful Exotic weapons like the Khvostov.
