Reed’s Regret Stasis Linear Fusion Rifle

Reed’s Regret is a precision frame linear fusion rifle and it’s the only heavy weapon that deals Stasis damage in the game. (We don’t count Salvation’s Grip in this house…) Linear fusions rifles are one of the focused weapons in this season’s artifact so Guardians will be able to get a lot of use out of this weapon in both PvE and PvP. Pairing Reed’s Regret with a fusion rifle in the energy slot and the Particle Deconstruction mod cranks up the damage output.

Bungie also plans on buffing linear fusions in the near future since they “still aren’t where we want them to be, so expect some tweaks”.

How to Get Reed’s Regret

Players can only get this linear fusion rifle by playing Trials of Osiris and the recent revamp to the Trials loot system changes how players can farm gear from the game mode. In a nutshell, Guardians will have to play Trials to earn points to rank up their reputation with Saint-14.

Players will earn a Trials engram each time they rank up their reputation and they can take this Engram to the Cryptarch for a random piece of Trials loot or they can focus the Engram at Saint-14 for a random roll on a specific piece of gear.

However, players can only focus Trials Engrams for a piece of gear that they’ve already unlocked. Since Reed’s is a new weapon, you won’t be able to target this for a focused engram until you’ve decrypted one from the Trials Engram.

Best Way to Farm Reed’s Regret

  • Earn enough Trials reputation to rank up & earn a Trials Engram
  • Decrypt Trials Engrams at the Cryptarch to get Reed’s Regret
  • Give future Trials Engrams to Saint-14

Players can earn both the regular and Adept versions of Reed’s Regret by this method, but you’ll need to go Flawless and unlock the Passage of Wealth before you can focus Trials Engrams into the Adept version.

Reed’s Regret PvE God Roll

Oddly enough for a weapon from Trials of Osiris, Reed’s Regret can roll with some of the best PvE perks in the game which makes it one of the most sought-after weapons for endgame activities in Season 15.

  • First Column: Smallbore – Dual strength barrel. Increases range and stability.
  • Second Column: Accelerated Coils – Speeds up charge. Faster charge time and descreses impact damage.
  • Third Column: Toss up between two perks.
    • Clown Cartridge – Reloading this weapon randomly overfills it from reserves.
    • Triple Tap – Rapidly landing three precision hits will return 1 round to the magazine.
  • Fourth Column: Toss up between two perks.
    • Firing Line – This weapon deals increased precision damage when near two or more allies.
    • Vorpal Weapon – Increased damage against bosses, vehicles, and Guardians with their Super active.
  • Masterwork: Charge Time – Reduces the charge time to fire this weapon.
  • Weapon Mod: Boss Spec – Increases damage against bosses and vehicles.

Triple Tap vs. Clown Cartridge

Any time there’s Triple Tap or Fourth Time’s the Charm on a precision special or heavy weapon, you can expect it to be on that weapon’s PvE god roll. You’re already going to be aiming for precision shots to take advantage of the crit multiplier so you might as well get some ammo returned directly to your magazine too!

Clown Cartridge is also a solid perk to chase after in the third column. You’ll usually be able to get an extra 2 or 3 rounds added to your magazine which is

The only way that Clown Cartridge edges out Triple Tap is if:

  1. You consistently get +3 rounds to your mag when you reload.
  2. You have trouble consecutively landing precision shots.
  3. Heavy ammo bricks are raining from the sky.

Triple Tap is still a better pick. Landing all of your precision shots effectively gives you 8 rounds per magazine which is generally what you can expect to get from Clown Cartridge. However, Triple Tap is a more efficient use of your heavy ammo and will give you more shots throughout a boss fight. And landing more shots means dealing more damage which is what this whole thing is about.

That being said, if you get the god roll above on your Reed’s Regret and it’s Clown Cartridge instead of Triple Tap, it’s still a great weapon. It’s just a 99.9999% god roll instead of 100%.

Firing Line vs. Vorpal Weapon

Both weapon perks give damage buffs with Firing Line edging out Vorpal by doing an extra 5% more damage. If you’re lucky enough to get a roll with either perk, be sure to keep it since season 15 should be called Season of the Fusion Rifle instead of Season of the Lost. With the right loadout and armor mods, you can deal some serious damage with this linear fusion rifle.

  • Vorpal Weapon: +15% damage to vehicles, bosses, & Guardians in their Super
  • Firing Line: +20% damage to precision shots

However, I’m a bigger fan of “always on” weapon perks like Vorpal Weapon as opposed to conditional ones like Firing Line. Bosses and majors can get flinched unexpectedly or move unpredictably because of a change in terrain that causes your precision shot to turn into a body shot. This completely negates the bonus of Firing Line where you’d still get the buff from Vorpal Weapon.

You might also not be near two of your teammates to proc Firing Line in the first place so your shots won’t be doing 20% more damage as they should.

Also, it bears mentioning that firing Line is bugged right now and because of that, it’s hard to recommend it as the end all be all god roll for Reed’s Regret with any level of confidence. Bungie knows about it and they’re working on a fix, but who knows how long it will be before it goes live? That being said, if you do get one to drop with Firing Line on it, keep it. It won’t be bugged forever and it will become the go-to weapon perk for boss damage.

Reed’s Regret PvP God Roll

This linear fusion rifle can roll with some interesting perk combinations that can turn it into a monster in the Crucible and Trials of Osiris.

One thing to remember is that LFRs are high-skill cap weapons and take a lot of getting used to in PvP. They’re far more nuanced than the point-and-shoot gameplay most players get from homing rocket launchers like Truth and Ascendancy. While this is the god roll for PvP, don’t expect free headshots with it.

  • First Column: Smallbore – Dual strength barrel. Increases range and stability.
  • Second Column: Accelerated Coils – Speeds up charge. Faster charge time and descreses impact damage.
  • Third Column: Toss up between two perks
    • Heating Up – Final blows with this weapon increase accuracy and stability while improving vertical recoil.
    • Killing Wind – Final blows grant increase mobility, weapon range, and handling for a short duration.
  • Fourth Column: Vorpal Weapon – Increased damage against bosses, vehicles, and Guardians with their Super active.
  • Masterwork: Charge Time – Reduces the charge time to fire this weapon.
  • Weapon Mod: Adept Range

Heating up vs. Killing Wind

No PvP god roll is complete without Killing Wind. It’s such a strong perk that it’s worth chasing after on every weapon that it can drop on. Getting defeats will proc Killing Wind and make Reed’s snappier and stickier to help you pick up those multi-kills. This perk has fantastic synergy with one-hit-kill precision weapons like sniper rifles and linear fusion rifles.

Heating up does the same thing but in a slightly different way. Final blows give your weapon a boost to accuracy and stability. This makes the recoil on your shots more controllable and your aim will be a little more forgiving with the accuracy bump.

Which one you go with really boils down to personal preference, or which one you’re lucky enough to get.

Vorpal Weapon

There’s no other choice in the 4th column. When a special or heavy weapon rolls with Vorpal, you use it in PvP. Enemy supers can completely change the flow of a match and turn it in their favor. Shutting them down quickly before they can cut through your team is the most important thing you can do.
