Destiny 2 Riiswalker god roll perks for PVE and PVP

The Riiswalker is a powerful Destiny 2 weapon, and players can maximize its potential by acquiring the god roll perks for this piece of loot.

Destiny 2 Riiswalker God Roll

There are many weapons that Guardians can use to achieve victory in Destiny 2, with the Riiswalker being one of the best players can acquire especially if they attain one that has a god roll.

The world of Destiny 2 has plenty for players to enjoy and experience. One of the biggest attractions is the various weapons that players can collect and use in their battles.

These weapons reach their true potential when they are equipped with their god roll that contains perks that maximize their potential.

One of the strongest weapons that Destiny 2 players can get their hands on is the Riiswalker, so here is the Destiny 2 Riiswalker god roll you should be on the lookout for when trying to get the best version of this Legendary shotgun.

Now, the particular Destiny 2 Riiswalker god roll you want will depend on whether you will be using it for player versus environment or player versus player battles.

Perks that work well in PVE battles are not guaranteed to perform well when it comes to battling it out in the Crucible, Iron Banner, or Trials of Osiris.

With this in mind, here is the PVE and PVP Destiny 2 Riiswalker god roll for either scenario you will find yourself when playing.

PVE

  • Smallbore
  • Assault Mag
  • Surplus
  • Vorpal Weapon

PVP

  • Rifled Barrel
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Quickdraw
  • Iron Reach

It is important to note that Guardians can only get this Legendary Shotgun through the Iron Banner playlist, so you will only be able to get this weapon when Iron Banner is live in the popular first-person shooter.

Unfortunately, it is not guaranteed you will get the Riiswalker god roll whenever you get this weapon, as the perks you get will be random in the same way, so you will have to pray to the loot gods that the next time you get this weapon to drop that it will have the PVE or PVP perks you want.

For Destiny 2, check out everything you need to know about Valor Ranks and stay tuned for future news and guides.

Apex Legends players believe Seer is inspired by music star Lil Nas X

Apex Legends players are suggesting that Seer has a very similar aesthetic to music artist Lil Nas X and may have been influential to the design.

Apex Legends Seer Lil Nas X

Some Apex Legends fans are drawing on similarities between the new Legend Seer and popular musician Lil Nas X, suggesting he may have been an influence when the developers were creating the character.

Apex Legends has just dropped its brand new update featuring a variety of changes in the patch notes. As well as Legends and weapons receiving buffs and nerfs, players also get to drop in on a new Decimated World’s Edge and Ranked Arenas playlist, keeping the free-to-play FPS fresh.

As well as all this, players have also been able to get their hands on the new Legend Seer, who has an interesting kit and an intriguing aesthetic that many relate to Lil Nas X.

apex legends seer

Lil Nas X is a popular musician who has broken onto the music scene in the last few years. The musician is known for his outlandish outfits, and most notable, his cowboy influence due to his hit song “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus.

Lil Nas X is constantly seen sporting a cowboy hat similar to Seer’s, which seems to be the main reason for their recent comparison by Apex fans on social media.

Of course, both are of similar heritage, with African influence being a heavy part of Seer’s lore and design, even having a skin called “Afrofuturism.” However, the main point of comparison seems to be the personality and aesthetic similarities, possessing flamboyant and extravagant qualities.

Similar to Lil Nas X, Seer also has a musical background, with his mother being a dancer. Seer definitely possesses a spring in his step similar to that of a professional dancer, as he moves very fluidly as if every action is part of a routine.

Their outfits also have a similar aesthetic, with Lil Nas X often pictured with gold accents and a cowboy hat, much like Seer’s launch bundle skin.

Fans on Twitter have already picked up on this, with one user even putting the images side by side to compare, demanding that the devs confirm Seer has some Lil Nas X influence in his design.

We are yet to officially know whether Respawn Entertainment was influenced by Lil Nas X when they were creating Seer.

However, we know Respawn is great at representing communities and all walks of life, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this was their ode to Lil Nas X and his breaking of industry norms.

Fortnite Season 7’s Legendary Quests tasks players with placing three Spy Probes for the Week 9 challenges. Here’s where to find and place the probes.

Along with the 17.30 update and the upcoming Ariana Grande concert, Fortnite Season 7’s ninth batch of Legendary challenges have gone live. If players complete these challenges, they’ll net a ton of XP towards earning Battle Stars and completing the Season 7 Battle Pass.

Week 9 tasks players with completing various extraterrestrial themed challenges, such as placing Bioscanners in Alien Biomes and placing Spy Probes. Here’s where to place the three Spy Probes for the Week 9 Legendary challenges.

Fortnite Spy Probe

Although you only need to plant three, there are at least eight Spy Probes to find around the Fortnite island. These can usually be found on hilltops, where they get a good view of the surrounding area.

They’ll be marked by a blue, translucent object sticking out of the ground. Simply approach it and press your interact button, and you’ll have completed the challenge.

Fortnite Spy Probe locations

Fortnite Spy Probe locations
  1. By the road south of Holly Hedges
  2. By the pond between Holly Hedges and Bony Burbs
  3. On the south-east side of Weeping Woods, by the road
  4. Directly south of the Zero Point, south-east of Defiant Dish
  5. On the hill above Hydro 16
  6. Off the road west of Misty Meadows
  7. On the hill east of Flushed Factory
  8. On the hill west of the Apres Ski resort

By landing near Flushed Factory, you’ll manage to get all Fortnite three Spy Probe locations without having to travel far, and with luck, complete the Quest in one game. This will net you 30,000 XP, which will be a major boost in unlocking the Rick Sanchez skin.
