Destiny 2: How to unlock the Adored Sniper Rifle

Here’s how to unlock the Adored Sniper Rifle, through the Gambit, Crucible, and Vanguard quests in Destiny 2 Beyond Light.

Published

Adored sniper rifle in Destiny 2

Destiny 2’s Season of the Hunt introduced the Adored Sniper Rifle, a reworked version of the fan-favorite Beloved. Here’s how you can get your hands on this powerful Ritual weapon.

In the second year of Destiny 2, developer Bungie began experimenting with the idea of powerful weapons that could be unlocked by completing specific milestones in the game’s three core playlists: Vanguard, Crucible, and Gambit.

One of the weapons available to be unlocked this way is the Adored Sniper Rifle. With a fixed perk pool and two traits in each column, this weapon is strong in both PvP and PvE scenarios.

Triple Tap and Vorpal Weapon are excellent when in PvE scenarios, while Snapshots Sights and Killing Wind will help you aim and take down enemies quickly in PvP.

Here’s how you can get your hands on it.

What is Destiny 2’s Adored Sniper Rifle?

Adored in an Adaptive-frame sniper rifle, and while it does not have the raw damage output of other snipers like the Aggressive-frame Revoker, the gun still has solid stats and some good perk combinations available.

The first two static perks on the weapon are Hammer-Forged Rifling and Accurized Rounds, which boost the gun’s range value. The first set of interchangeable perks are Triple-Tap and Killing Wind, followed by a choice between Vorpal Weapon and Snapshot Sights.

Adored offers some interesting perk combinations depending on playstyle and whether the sniper will be used in PvP or PvE.

How to obtain Adored: Vanguard, Crucible and Gambit quests

While there was still only a single Pursuit weapon, Bungie changed the process for obtaining the new Sniper Rifle: players can choose to complete a single quest in one of the three core playlists – Strikes, Crucible, and Gambit – and will be rewarded with the new Sniper Rifle.

Guardians should follow the steps outlined below, in their preferred playlist, to obtain Adored:

Vanguard Guide

      • 1000 combatants
      • 300 points

    1. 35 defeats in streaks
    2. 20 Sniper Rifle headshots
  3. Speak with Banshee-44 in the Tower to receive your Adored

Crucible Guide

    2. 20 blockers
    3. Speak with Banshee-44 in the Tower to receive your Adored

Is Adored worth the grind?

While the three quest options for obtaining Adored are quite simple compared to some previous Pinnacle weapon quests, the question still stands: is the weapon worth the grind? Members of the Destiny 2 community have started to issue their verdicts on the new gun.

While it may not be the most powerful Sniper Rifle in the game, Adored does appear to be a solid choice for both PvP and PvE, especially with the recent sunsetting of many other weapons.

If you are looking for a new Sniper Rifle to use in Beyond Light and Season of the Lost content, completing the short grind to obtain this weapon is probably a good idea.
