Along with the tons of new content that came with the Curse of Osiris DLC in Destiny 2, comes the Perfect Paradox Shotgun. Almost everyone has been talking about it and mentioning how amazing it is. However, it can be difficult to figure out how you can get the weapon for yourself.
This Destiny 2 Perfect Paradox Shotgun Guide will tell you all about how you can get the Shotgun for yourself. We will also mention how the Shotgun compares with other weapons of similar type in the game and discuss the general stats along with the viability of the weapon.
How to Get the Perfect Paradox Shotgun in Destiny 2 – Destiny 2 Perfect Paradox Shotgun
Before we delve into how to use the weapon, let’s see how we can get the weapon. To get the weapon, you first need to unlock all four of the lost Prophecy Weapons and then visit Brother Vance to get the Verse Number 10, your first verse of the week.
After completing the challenge and getting the sword, return to Brother Vance and get the second verse for the week. This quest will have waypoints for you along the way so I do not think that you will have any trouble trying to complete the quest. It is just one of those boring grindy quests so common with Destiny.
After you complete the quest, return to brother Vance and he will send you on a mission to collect some blue stuff. Namely, you need to find Two Concentrated Radiolarian Cultures, Two Advanced Paradox Amplifiers and 2 Fossilized Hermaion Blossoms. Find these items, then activate them in the verse item before returning to brother Vance.
At this point, you will be given another mission, known as Not even the Darkness Mission which takes place on Mercury. This mission is also not that difficult since you are constantly guided by the game. Once you are done with this, all you need to do is to return to Brother Vance and you will be able to craft the Perfect Paradox Shotgun inside the Lost Prophecy Weapon Forge.
Now that you have the weapon with you, let’s see how it stacks up against other weapons in the game.
Perfect Paradox Shotgun in Destiny 2
This weapon cannot compare to Legend of Acrius upgraded, but it is much better than most other weapons. It shoots faster and has longer range than the Hawthorn does. It is also much better in terms of looks as well. Since Hawthorn was the most effective PvE Shotgun in the game previously, the title now belongs to the Perfect Paradox Shotgun.
In PvP though, it is not as useful as the Trials of the Nine Shotgun. The Trials of the Nine shotgun just works much better when playing against other players than the perfect paradox does.
It is a good weapon to pick up but if you already have a Trials of the Nine with you already, then it is probably not worth it for you to grind all of the stuff which you may have already done before just to get a shotgun.
