While this weapon may not be the absolute beast it once was, it can still pack a heavy punch when used correctly. So with that said, here’s everything you need to know about how to get The Mountaintop god rolls in PvE and PvP.

How To Get The Mountaintop in Destiny 2

Achieving your very first Mountaintop roll in Destiny Into the Light is quite easy and it follows the same quest steps as the other BRAVE Arsenal weapons.

So, in similar fashion, to acquire this weapon there’s a series of steps you need to follow. However, it may take you a bit longer to find your perfect god roll.

Here’s how to get The Mountaintop in Destiny 2:

  • Complete Arcite’s BRAVE Weapon Quest (specifically related to The Mountaintop).
  • Attune the weapon in the Hall of Champions.
  • Start farming Onslaught activities where you’ll find your rewards in the chests at the end.

Once you’ve completed Arcite’s Mountaintop quest, you will received a curated roll with fixed perks for all players. If you wish to continue farming for different rolls, potentially securing yourself a god roll, attuning the weapon in the Hall of Champions will give this weapon a 50% increase in drop rate across all Onslaught activities.

The Mountaintop PvP God Roll in Destiny 2

While The Mountaintop is not quite the weapon it once was, this weapon can be still extremely powerful and tedious to deal with in the right hands.

Here’s our pick for the best PvP Mountaintop roll:

  • Barrel: Quick Launch
  • Magazine: High-Velocity Rounds/Spike Grenades
  • Perk 1: Auto-Loading Holster/Impulse Amplifier
  • Perk 2: Harmony
  • Masterwork: Reload Speed/Handling

One of the strengths of The Mountaintop lies in its ability to shoot grenades in a straight line as opposed to other grenade launchers. Because of this, having perks that increase its bullet velocity are often favored in a PvP setting. In addition, having a masterwork that increases its handling or reload speed just make it easier for you to switch weapons, or get your next shot off as quickly as possible.

The Mountaintop PvE God Roll in Destiny 2

The Mountaintop has always been primarily known as a PvP weapon, but it does also have effectiveness in PvE. Here’s out pick for the best PvE Mountaintop roll:

  • Barrel: Quick Launch
  • Magazine: Spike Grenades
  • Perk 1: Auto-Loading Holster
  • Perk 2: Frenzy/Recombination
  • Masterwork: Velocity
  • Mod: Boss Spec

When it comes to PvE, there are number of roles that can be effective, but this one will definitely get the job done. Spike Grenades is a no-brainer as it increases your damage output on direct hits. Auto-Loading Holster cuts down reloading time, allowing you to stay in the action more and do more damage. Perk 2 comes down to personal preference, but Frenzy and Recombination are both solid picks once again for increasing damage output.

So there you have it, our god roll for The Mountaintop for PvE and PvP. Along with The Mountaintop, many reprised weapons have been making a name for themselves once again. Check out our Recluse guide to see the best roll for you. Until next time, Guardians…
