Destiny 2 Compass Rose is the new Legendary shotgun added as part of the Solstice of Heroes event.
It boasts impressive stats and some good perk potentials, but if you’re hoping to get your hands on the gun, prepare for some Compass Rose farming. There’s a bit of RNG and a lot of event grinding in store. However, the Compass Rose is worth the time and effort, especially if you’re looking for a good PvP shotgun.
How to get Destiny 2 Compass Rose
You’ll actually get your first Compass Rose just by completing Solstice of Heroes’ first quest. Unless you’re very lucky, you’ll likely need a few extra rolls to get a good version of the new shotgun.
That means starting the Compass Rose farm process of earning Solstice Key Fragments and unlocking Solstice Packages. Each Package costs 15 Key Fragments to open.
Fortunately, Destiny 2 isn’t skimpy with handing out Solstice Key Fragments. You can get plenty of them from Crucible matches, Strike playlists, or Eva Levante bounties.
However, the best way to get more Solstice Key Fragments is defeating minibosses in the European Aerial Zone.
Solstice Packages may contain a number of items, including armor and materials. There’s no sure chance of getting a Compass Rose, so prepare for the long haul if you want the Compass Rose god roll.
