How to Get Ikelos Submachine Gun V1.0.3 in Destiny 2 – Ikelos Submachine Gun 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_SMG_V1.0.3 is the newest version of one of the Warmind weapons that are back.

This 750 RPM Aggressive Frame SMG not only has a fantastic perk pool, but it also is Arc and synergizes with last season’s Arc 3.0 subclass rework.

With the combination of archetype, element, and perks, this SMG is arguably going to be one of, if not the best PvE weapon in the game going into Lightfall.

How to Get Ikelos_SMG_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_SMG_V1.0.3 is an Ikelos weapon, and to acquire Ikelos weapons the following can be completed:

ikelos smg icon

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_SMG_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_SMG_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. Feeding Frenzy gives solid reload bonuses, but is dependent on kills.

Voltshot is one of the best perks in the game no matter what subclass is being played and is a good tool for getting multi-kills to get higher stacks on Feeding Frenzy.

Perpetual Motion and Frenzy are solid alternatives for more difficult content in which enemy health is scaled up because they are almost always active, as there are many points in which you can shoot an entire magazine of a weapon and not net a single kill, meaning neither Feeding Frenzy nor Voltshot get activated.

In PvP, looking for range is ideal for SMGs as they can be effective from more areas. Corkscrew Rifling and Seraph Rounds are the choice for PvP due to the stat bonuses, and all the effect Seraph Rounds have on disrupting enemies during duels.

Perpetual Motion gives even more stat bonuses for a strong neutral game and Rangefinder extends the effective range of the weapon even further. Tap the Trigger is a good alternative to Range Finder as it makes the weapon very easy to handle during the initial portions of a duel and lasts roughly equivalent to the time to kill of the weapon.

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!
