How to Get Ikelos Hand Cannon V1.0.3 in Destiny 2 – Ikelos Hand Cannon V1.0.3 God Rolls for PvE and PvP

Season of the Seraph is here and reprises some weapons from the Warmind DLC nearly 5 years ago… Yes, it was that long ago. The Ikelos_HC_V1.0.3 is the newest version of one of the Warmind weapons that are back.

This 180 RPM Precision Frame Hand Cannon was given a massive overhaul to its perk pool and sports the Void element which can be combined with the reworked Gyrfalcon’s Hauberk exotic for Volatile Rounds in patch 6.3.0.1 soon after this season’s release.

How to Get Ikelos_HC_V1.0.3 in Season of the Seraph

In Season of the Seraph there are Ikelos and Seraph weapons which have slightly different means to acquire. Ikelos_HC_V1.0.3 is an Ikelos weapon, and to acquire Ikelos weapons the following can be completed:

Combine 4 Resonate Stems via the Resonance Amp in your inventory to create a hint to find an Override Frequency which can be seen by hovering over the Resonance Amp. Finding the Override Frequency will unlock an Ikelos Weapon. Once an Ikelos weapon is found, it can be focused in the Helm once the Ikelos Weapon Focusing upgrade is unlocked from Clovis in the Helm.

Focusing is done at Clovis in the Helm at the cost of an Umbral Engram, 50 Legendary Shards, 30 Seraphic Umbral Energy, and 4 Resonate Stems. To ensure getting Red Frame Deepsight Ikelos weapons, the Focusing Deepsight upgrade from Clovis will need to be unlocked, and makes it such that the first Ikelos or Seraph weapon that is focused each week is a Deepsight drop.

The Ikelos Weapon Focusing and Focusing Deepsight upgrades are the 2nd and 7th respective upgrades of the Focusing Upgrades path in the first row of the Seasonal Upgrades from Clovis.

To unlock these upgrades Exo Frame Modules are needed. These are received through completing the Seasonal Challenges found in the quest tab.

One of the weekly Seasonal Challenge Exo Frame Modules can be acquired through progression of the Overarching Seasonal Quest, “More Than a Weapon”, and the other from a weekly separate challenge.

How to Unlock the Ikelos_HC_V1.0.3 Pattern and Craft It

5 patterns are required to craft a Seraph or Ikelos weapon. The Deepsight Focusing upgrade is the only 100% guaranteed way to get a red frame Deepsight drops, but any regular drop of these weapons has a random chance to be a Deepsight weapon.

Once 5 patterns are unlocked the weapon can be crafted at The Enclave, and then leveled up to unlock Enhanced perks as well. Below is a list of all of the available perks for Ikelos_HC_V1.0.3:

The God Roll consists of the following perks seen above. Corkscrew Rifling gives a good all around stat boost. Seraph Rounds are an amazing magazine option as they give a small stat boost, and so many intrinsic bonuses to the weapon. Rapid Hit is a top tier perk as it not only makes your reload speed much faster, but it also increases Stability, making it easier to hit shots.

Subsistence is a great alternative for content where enemies have lower health, as you’ll be getting a lot of kills and get a lot of value out of this perk. Frenzy is always a solid option, and you can never go wrong with it. Repulsor Brace is an interesting alternative for more difficult content as with Void subclasses, this perk can synergize very well by giving constant overshields.

When analyzing the PvP perks you must be realistic with which perks will actually get value. For stat boosting range from Hammer-Forged Rifling and the bonuses from Seraph Rounds are great to have. Rapid Hit will make dueling easier, and is the recommended perk here.

Air Assault is a viable option as well if you play in the air a lot, it is just more difficult to make active. Golden Tricorn is the only perk that will be activated somewhat consistently. This perk has a higher damage bonus than Rampage at 1 stack, making it the preferred perk. As getting a Grenade or charged melee kill which gives a 50% damage is more likely to occur than getting a double kill within the Rampage time window.

Wrap Up

Season of the Seraph makes it much easier to target farm weapons. There are 10 new weapons to chase, so there are a lot of Red Frames to collect. You can only get 1 guaranteed Red Frame weapon per week, but each drop does have a chance to be a Deepsight Weapon.

Because of this, weapon frames can be farmed, but luck is involved. So whether you decide to take the grind slow and target specific weapons, or test your luck by grinding out random drops, good luck with your quest for getting new additions to your arsenal for Lightfall!
