Jurassic Green is a Solar Pulse Rifle which is tied to the Festival of the Lost event. This year, we’ve also gotten a fun new visual update to go along with its newly-refreshed perks! While we do wish there was more of a “Jurassic” theme, we can’t deny that the new color scheme does look really great. In this article, we’ll cover how to get Jurassic Green in Destiny 2, and then we’ll take an in-depth look at the god roll for Jurassic Green in both PvE and PvP.
How to Get Jurassic Green
To get Jurassic Green, you’ll have to play during the Festival of the Lost event. This is the Halloween event for Destiny 2, and the 2023 Festival of the Lost is active from October 17 – November 7. If you want to farm Jurassic Green, make sure to do it while you can!
While the Festival of the Lost event is live, just play Haunted Lost Sectors and focus Eerie Engrams at Eva Levante to farm Jurassic Green god rolls!
Haunted Lost Sectors don’t take too long to run, so you should be able to farm a bunch of them in a fairly short time. Lots of people are using Titans with Banner of War this year, but really any build can complete a run in about the same amount of time.
Once this event is over, you probably won’t be able to get Jurassic Green again until next year. However, that could all change.
Since The Final Shape is supposed to change so much, we might see all new events and loot next year. Or maybe it won’t–who knows? Either way, Jurassic Green is a really cool Pulse Rifle that’s worth grabbing, especially if you can get a god roll!
Jurassic Green | Best PvE God Roll and Perks
Jurassic Green is a very fun (and very cool looking) weapon, and luckily it’s solid in both PvE and PvP. While it isn’t really “meta” in either right now, there are plenty of reasons to use it in any kind of content. Here are the PvE god roll options for Jurassic Green!
- Arrowhead Brake
Arrowhead Brake gives the strongest bonuses when compared to all the other barrels, at least in PvE. It gives a huge +30 to Recoil Control and +10 Handling. Assuming you’re using a weapon that actually benefits from the +30 Recoil (meaning it doesn’t have over 70 by default), it’s always a strong pick. You could go for other barrels if you want, but this is the best if you’re going for a true god roll.
- Tactical Mag
- Appended Mag
Tactical Mag is the best all-round pick here, as it gives +5 Stability, +10 Reload Speed, and +3 Magazine Size. All of these bonuses are great, and getting them all with no penalties is always worth it on Pulse Rifles.
However, you could also opt for Appended Mag if you prefer it. All Appended Mag does is give you +6 Magazine Size, but that is a lot of extra ammo. If you don’t feel like the Stability and Reload Speed bonuses are necessary, this is a great alternative.
- Heal Clip
Subsistence is easily the best perk overall for this slot, as it allows you to reload a portion of the mag on each defeat. To be specific, each kill (with this weapon) will give you 10% of your magazine back. That allows you to stay in fights for longer, and against huge waves of enemies that can be a huge assistance. If you get pushed into a corner by a ton of adds, Subsistence can really help you out a lot.
If you want a more fringe perk, Heal Clip is a great one to try out. It gives you the Cure buff (which heals you a bit) every time you reload after killing an enemy, which has some interesting effects. In activities where you aren’t allowed to heal as easily (thanks to debuffs or modifiers), Heal Clip is a good way to heal anyway. Or it could just help you out in general PvE content, as healing is always helpful.
There’s no real alternative to Incandescence on this gun for PvE. With Incandescence, every kill you get turns your enemy’s corpse into a scorching explosion. This makes clearing adds a breeze, and helps ignite more powerful enemies when they’re near weaker ones.
The utility you get out of Incandescence beats out every other elemental perk, especially on primary weapons. And since you won’t be using Jurassic Green for boss DPS anyway, there’s no reason to care about opting for a more damage-based perk.
Weapon Masterwork and Mod
- Masterwork: Reload Speed
- Mod: Minor Spec or Major Spec
The masterwork for Jurassic Green in PvE could change based on preference, but we recommend Reload Speed. Since there’s never a time when bonus Reload Speed is bad, it’s a safe pick that you won’t ever regret.
For the mod, we recommend either Minor or Major Spec. If you plan to use Jurassic Green against weaker enemies, then go with Minor Spec. But go with Major if you plan to use it more against Champions or other powerful enemies.
Jurassic Green | Best PvP God Roll and Perks
Jurassic Green isn’t considered a great PvP weapon right now, but it certainly has the right perks to be. If you like the archetype and feel of the weapon, you can get a lot of use out of Jurassic Green in the Crucible. Here’s the full PvP god roll for Jurassic Green!
- Arrowhead Brake
- Corkscrew Rifling
Arrowhead Brake is still good for PvP, as Recoil Control is always an important stat. Getting that +30 Recoil bonus is hard to pass up on Pulse Rifles, no matter what other perks you have. Plus the Handling bonus is better in PvP than PvE, so you can get more use out of that as well here.
On the other hand, you might want to prioritize Range over Recoil Control in PvP since it’s so important. If you choose to do that, Corkscrew Rifling is a well-balanced option that still gives other bonuses as well. It gives +5 to Range, Handling, and Stability, so it’s good for any build.
- Accurized Rounds
Here we are again with a range-based option. This magazine option gives +10 Range, but nothing else. But since it gives more Range than any other option (except ones that also have penalties), it’s the go-to option for most Pulse Rifles in PvP. Range is too important to ignore, so Accurized Rounds is always a smart pick.
- Keep Away
- Killing Wind
Keep Away is currently one of the strongest perks for PvP, and it’s at its best on Pulse Rifles. To get its bonuses, you’ll need to first make sure you’re at least 15 meters away from all enemies.
Once you’ve “kept away”, you’ll get the following bonuses: +10 Range, +30 Reload Speed, and (roughly) -5% Accuracy Cone Growth (which means increased accuracy). [The light.gg numbers for the accuracy percentages are noted as uncertain, but it should be pretty close.] This allows you to keep your distance and get bonuses for doing so, which is perfect for Jurassic Green.
If you’re a more aggressive player, however, you might want a perk to match that style. Killing Wind incentivizes getting kills, after which you gain increased Mobility, Range, and Handling for 5 seconds. It’s great for the more aggressive players who want to use a ranged weapon anyway.
Headseeker is another perk that has taken PvP by storm lately. With Headseeker, whenever you land a non-precision shot, your get a short-term buff which increases your precision damage and aim assist.
This means that if you land a body shot, your next head shot will do more damage and will be easier to hit thanks to the increased aim assist. It’s a near-perfect Pulse Rifle perk, so we highly recommend using it before it gets nerfed or changed.
Weapon Masterwork and Mod
- Masterwork: Range
- Mod: Counterbalance Stock or Targeting Adjuster
For the PvP masterwork, Range is the best choice. While you could go for Stability instead, Range is just ultimately more important for winning PvP fights. There are far more scenarios where extra Range is more helpful than any other masterwork stat, so it’s a fairly easy choice.
The mod for PvP is a choice between Counterbalance Stock and Targeting Adjuster. Counterbalance Stock gives +15 Recoil Control, while Targeting Adjuster gives +5 Aim Assist. Either is great, but it just depends on which you find more helpful.
