Destiny 2: Guide to Acquiring the Perfect Roll for Whisper of the Worm

May 15, 2024

Destiny 2 boasts a plethora of weapons, among which Exotic variants stand out as the most unique and rare. These weapons come with their own distinctive intrinsic traits and perks, setting them apart from any other weapon in the game.

The Whisper of the Worm is one such Exotic weapon, reintroduced as craftable in the Into the Light update alongside the reactivation of The Whisper Exotic Mission. With Sniper Rifles receiving significant buffs in recent seasons, Whisper of the Worm has emerged as one of the best choices for sustained damage output.

Previously, Whisper of the Worm could be obtained from the Monument of the Lost Light in the Tower, but its availability was limited after the original sunset of The Whisper mission. However, the Into the Light update has brought back this mission, allowing players to obtain the Exotic by completing The Whisper mission on normal or Legendary difficulty.

To unlock perks for the crafted version of Whisper of the Worm and its catalyst, players must complete the Exotic mission on Legendary difficulty. Approximately four Legendary runs of The Whisper mission are required to fully customize Whisper of the Worm.

Whisper of the Worm is a Solar Heavy Ammo Sniper Rifle featuring the Exotic Intrinsic Trait “White Nail.” This trait enables the weapon to deal higher base precision damage, with three rapid precision hits refilling the magazine. This makes Whisper of the Worm highly effective for sustained boss damage without the need for reloading.

The Exotic Catalyst for Whisper of the Worm, Whispered Breathing, enhances its performance by granting bonus Range and precision damage when aiming without firing for a brief moment while zoomed. Unlocking the Catalyst is crucial for maximizing the weapon’s damage potential.

With the introduction of crafting, Whisper of the Worm now offers new perks in addition to its original one. These include Field Prep, No Distractions, Enlightened Action, and Mulligan, providing players with various strategic options to enhance their gameplay experience.

For the optimal “God Roll” of Whisper of the Worm, players should prioritize perks that complement its playstyle, such as Field Prep for increased ammo reserves and improved aiming down sight speed when crouched. Pairing this with appropriate barrel and magazine options, such as Corkscrew Rifling and Flared Magwell, enhances the weapon’s handling and overall performance, making it a formidable choice for long damage phases.
