The Destiny 2 Gnawing Hunger weapon was first introduced to the game in the Season of the Drifter and has made a grand return in the Season of Arrivals! If you’ve never heard of this weapon, it’s a powerful auto rifle that will shred through enemies in both PvP and PvE matches and has an excessive amount of perks that players can roll for. In this guide, we are going to explain how to get the Gnawing Hunter weapon in Destiny 2 and take a look at its god roll perks.

Destiny 2 Gnawing Hunger Weapon Location

There are a couple of ways that players can acquire the Gnawing Hunger weapon in Destiny 2, none of which are especially hard. Some will require larger amounts of luck, while others will require a large number of resources. In the list below, you’ll find the four best ways to get the Gnawing Hunger auto rifle.

As you can see, there are a few different ways to go about getting the Gnawing Hunger weapon. However, perhaps the best way to get the weapon is by decrypting Lead-Focused Umbral Engrams, as these will either reward you with the Night Watch or the Gnawing Hunger. If you don’t have any of those lying around, Dredgen-Focused Umbral Engrams also have a chance of rewarding you with the weapon, but the odds are a bit worse than the Lead Engram.

If you happen to have a lot of Gunsmith Materials lying around, another good option is to give 100 of them to Banshee-44, as he will give you a legendary weapon in exchange. That being said, these materials can be a bit tough to comeby, so you may not want to spend them all in one place. 

Destiny 2 Gnawing Hunger God Roll

The Gnawing Hunger weapon has a lot of different perk options and is eligible for random rolls in the game. That being said, there are some perks that are better than others that you’ll want to watch out for if you’re hoping to land a Gnawing Hunger god roll. In the list below, we’ve detailed our picks for the best Gnawing Hunger perks.

  • Barrel: Arrowhead Brake
  • Magazine: Tactical Mag
  • Trait 1: Tap the Trigger/Zen Moment
  • Trait 2: Demolitionist

As we mentioned above, there are a lot of Gnawing Hunger weapon perks that players will have a chance at getting when they receive the weapon. The list above is designed to be a nice mix of PvE and PvP and is not built towards one specific mode. So if you find yourself focusing on one game mode over another, you may have a different Gnawing Hunger god roll in mind.
