There are many weapons in Destiny 2, with the ever-evolving meta shotguns have kept their place on top. The season of undying hit hand-cannon pretty hard, but I guess that’s for good. The game has to stay fresh, and with the hand-cannon dominated meta, this was required. Guns such as Dust Rock Blues, Not-Forgotten, Ace of Spades, Retold Tale, and Mindbenders Ambition are still dominating the crucible.
Retold Tale is the 65 RPM dreaming city exclusive shotgun, it’s a precision shotgun. One of the best in the game, I’d rank it best after Mindbender’s Ambition, which sits on top for the best PvP shotguns.
Retold Tale Stats
- Type: Precision Frame
- Impact: 70
- Range: 69 (varies with rolls)
- Handling: 41
- Reload Speed: 47
- Aim Assist: 75
- Recoil: 64
The stats can vary with the rolls you get.
Retold Tale God Roll
The actual roll you should be looking for the Retold Tale is:
- Full Choke – For tighter pellet spread. Rifled barrel is also good, but full choke offers more consistency.
- Accurized Rounds – For the additional range.
- Quickdraw – Immediately draw the shotgun
- Snapshot Sights/Slideshot – Depends on choice, slideshot is better though. You can slide and 2 bullets will return to the magazine.
- Mod Slot: Icarus Grip – Improved in-air accuracy.
Enough rambling about the meta and stuff, let’s find out how to farm the retold tale shotgun in Destiny 2.
