Destiny 2 Rufus's Fury is a new auto rifle that many players will want to get. Destiny 2 weapons have their pros and cons, and when a weapon like this comes along, players tend to jump on it. Rufus's Fury is a versatile weapon, with applications for both PvE and PvP. Here is how to get Rufus's Fury in Destiny 2.

Rufus's Fury is one of the rewards available in the Destiny 2 Root of Nightmares raid. As with all raids, loot is awarded after completing each encounter, and some loot is specific to certain encounters. Rufus's Fury is a potential drop from the third encounter, the boss fight with Zo'Aurc.

You do have a second chance to get the weapon, as any weapon can drop from the final encounter, the boss fight with Nezarec. If you do manage to get Rufus's Fury from either source, you can grab another one from the end of the raid, and from raid chests.

The reasons you might want extra copies of the weapon are to get different perk rolls, as well as Deepsight versions so you can eventually craft the weapon.

Rufus's Fury is quickly gaining popularity due to a couple of factors. Firstly, it is a Strand weapon, so it synergizes well with Strand builds. Also, it is a 720 RPM auto rifle with good stability, making it very useful in the Crucible.

Furthermore, Rufus's Fury can roll with some really great perks. Polygonal/Hammer-forged Rifling, alongside Ricchochet Rounds, make the most out of the weapon's already impressive stability and its range.

It can also roll with perks like Demolitionist, which is extremely useful in PvE, or Reconstruction which will keep your ammo topped up. Target Lock grants increased damage as you fire at an enemy, and the raid origin perk Paracausal Affinity also grants a 20% damage increase after final blows.

If you are running with Strand and you want a weapon that works with your build, there is likely no better option than Rufus's Fury. The god roll for this weapon depends on what you want it for, which is why crafting is so great. For PvE, you ideally want Target Lock and Demolitionst for grenade-based builds, or Target Lock and Reconstruction for general builds.

That is it for the Destiny 2 Rufus's Fury auto rifle. For more on the game, check out our Destiny 2 Vexcalibur guide.
