How to Get Blood Feud in Season 18

Like seasons prior, seasonal weapons are obtainable through random drops and via focusing umbral engrams. Acquiring the weapon is one thing, but collecting red frame weapons for crafting is another. You will need 5 red frame weapons in order to craft a Plunder Weapon.

To increase your chances and even guarantee red frame weapon drops, you will need to use the Star Chart in the HELM. This is the seasonal upgrade path which will give bonuses to the seasonal activity and allow you to curate your loot. Plunder Weapons can be purchased from the Star Chart using 12 Plundered Umbral Energy, Legendary Shards, and an Umbral Engram.

The Star Chart is upgraded using Repute, which is acquired via Seasonal Challenges and through steps of the seasonal quests, Sails of the Shipstealer.

Unlike prior seasons, the Star Chart has more freedom in its upgrade path, and an upgrade does not require all of the prior upgrades in the same row.

For instance, if you upgrade the 1st level of the Swashbuckler row, you can use your next Repute for the second upgrade on the Quartermaster row even if you do not have level one.

The upgrade path is divided into 3 rows: Quartermaster, Navigation, and Swashbuckler. It is recommended to unlock in this order:

  1. Level 1 of the Navigator row.
  2. Level 2 of the Swashbuckler row.
  3. Level 3 of the Navigator row for the Weapon Treasure Map upgrade, allowing you to create a treasure map specifically for Plunder Weapons in the expedition activity.
  4. Level 3 of the Quartermaster row to unlock Focused Weapon Spoils in order to be able to use your Plundered Umbral Energy for a chance at red frame weapons. This bit is recommended second, as waiting is beneficial because you can save up your umbral energy and this will give you time to unlock the weapon you desire to directly purchase it for a chance at a red frame drop.
  5. Any upgrade in Level 4 that you prefer so you can unlock the Level 5 upgrades.
  6. Level 5 of the Swashbuckler row
  7.  upgrade that gives a guaranteed red frame drop once per week from the Ketcrash activity as well as upgrades that increase the odds for a Plunder Weapon drop from Ketcrash.

The last source of red frame weapons is from the Treasure Beacons which are obtained through reputation gains at the Star Chart. These beacons will give an easy-to-follow quest that will ultimately end in you getting a red frame weapon. Earn these quickly by upgrading your Star Chart with bounties acquired from the Star Chart.

How to Unlock Blood Feud Pattern and Craft It

As mentioned before, 5 red frame weapon drops are needed to be completed in order to craft this weapon. Once that is complete you need to level up a crafted version of the weapon to unlock all of the perks that it can roll with, including enhanced perks. Next, we will go over the best perks for Blood Feud in both PvE and PvP; here are the available perks for Blood Feud:

How to get Blood Feud in Destiny 2 - Blood Feud God Rolls for PvE and PvP 4

Blood Feud PvE God Roll

Barrel Option

  • Smallbore – For the Range and Stability bonuses
  • Fluted Barrel – For the Handling and Stability bonuses

Magazine Option

  • Appended Mag – Gives +3 to Magazine Size
  • Tactical Mag – Gives +1 to Magazine Size, +10 to Reload Speed, and +5 to Stability

Perk Column 1

  • Pugilist – Kills with the weapon give melee energy
  • Grave Robber – Weapon kills refill the magazine

Perk Column 2

  • Swashbuckler – Increases damage from kills with the weapon or melees. Stacks up to 5, and a melee kill automatically gives 5 stacks
  • Headstone – Spawns stasis crystals on precision kills
  • Frenzy – Once in compat for 12 seconds, grants 15% bonus damage, 50 handling and reload speed

The barrel options are for relevant stats for submachine guns and are not the defining factor of the weapon. Magazine options are mostly based around the ammo economy via magazine size. In terms of perks, column 1 Pugilist synergizes well with the new Arc 3.0 classes based around melee damage by giving back energy on kills, meaning you can use your melee far more often which many Arc 3.0 builds will be based around.

The other option in this column is also based around melees, Grave Robber. This circumvents reloading through melee kills and lets you have more weapon uptime. Column 2 offers fantastic perks. Swashbuckler continues the melee theme, and if you are getting melee kills, you will get a massive 33% damage bonus and it pairs very well with either of the 2 recommended first column perks.

Headstone is great if you are using stasis for ability energy. Lastly, Frenzy is a solid perk that is very easy to use. You do not need to think about using it and it is very easy to keep active, and you more or less get a flat 15% damage bonus.

Blood Feud PvP God Roll

Barrel Option

  • Hammer-Forged Rifling – Gives +10 to Range
  • Smallbore – Gives +7 to Stability and Range

Magazine Option

  • Accurized Rounds – Gives +10 to Range

Perk Column 1

  • Dynamic Sway Reduction – Increases stability up to +10 and maximizes after 0.6 seconds
  • Pugilist – Kills with the weapon gives melee energy

Perk Column 2

  • Headstone – Spawns stasis crystals on precision kills
  • Elemental Capacitor – Gives a stat bonus depending on subclass type:
  • Soler: +50 reload speed
  • Arc: +50 handling
  • Void: +20 stability
  • Stasis: +20 recoil direction and 5% reduction of ADS movement speed penalty

The barrel and magazine options are targeted towards particular stats, most notably range and stability to ensure landing shots and reducing damage falloff.

Column 1 features Dynamic Sway Reduction for boosts in weapon performance via stability as it helps you land shots and reduces flinch.

Pugilist is here again if you are dependent on a melee build and depend on cooldowns for your build as this perk can circumvent this.

The second column is dependent on subclass. If using stasis, both Headstone and Elemental Capacitor are good options.

The former is a great means of stasis energy and utilizing stasis abilities that require a crystal. Elemental Capacitor gives very meaningful stat bonuses and are passively utilized, so you don’t have to play around it.

The only stat that is lackluster is for Solar subclasses, as reload speed in PvP is not as meaningful as other stats. In that case, Wellspring or Swashbuckler are good options for Solar subclasses.

Warp Up

Unfortunately, there is no direct means of getting red-framed weapons like there was last season, but there are more ways to get weapon drops in general.

Getting a crafted weapon is great, but keep an eye on the perks you get from random drops as you might get lucky with the perks and be on the same level as a fully crafted weapon with much less of a grind. Good luck on your grind and chasing your plunder!
