Ahoy, welcome to Season 18! With the new season, there are 6 new seasonal weapons, known as Plunder Weapons, to chase after.

All Plunder Weapons are craftable and come with new perks and solid stats.

This article will focus on Brigand’s Law, a Rapid-Fire Frame Arc Sidearm. Sidearms are in a great spot in PvP and this sidearm offers excellent perks for all facets of the game as well as the Arc element to synergize with the new Arc 3.0 rework released with Season 18.

How to Get Brigand’s Law 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 seasonal upgrade path 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 Hidden Compartment 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 are 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 Brigand’s Law 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 it can roll with, including enhanced perks. Next, we will go over the best perks for Brigand’s Law in both PvE and PvP; here are the available perks for Brigand’s Law:

How to get Brigand’s Law in Destiny 2 - Brigand’s Law God Rolls for PvE and PvP 4

Brigand’s Law PvE God Roll

Barrel Option

  • Corkscrew Rifling – Gives +5 to Stability, Handling, and Range
  • Fluted Barrel – Gives +5 to Stability and +15 to Handling

Magazine Option

  • Appended Mag – Gives +4 to Magazine Size
  • Tactical Mag – Gives +3 to Magazine Size, +10 to Reload Speed, and +5 to Stability

Perk Column 1

  • Pugilist – Kills with the weapon to give melee energy
  • Feeding Frenzy – Rapid Kills give stacks that increase Reload Speed. Max of 5 stacks which gives +100 Reload Speed and a 0.8x duration multiplier.

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
  • Voltshot – Reloading this weapon after a kill makes your next shot Jolt an enemy
  • Demolitionist – Kills with this weapon gives 10% grenade energy

Sidearms have such a fast reload speed that you can focus on magazine size and other stats for the Barrel and Magazine options. In perk column 1 Pugilist is a great option due to giving back melee energy and is slightly recommended over Feeding Frenzy due to the already fast Reload Speed of sidearms. The final column has a lot of great options.

Swashbuckler is a top-tier damage perk, and pairs exceptionally well with Pugilist. Voltshot is great for spreading damage through Jolt and gives any bonuses from Jolted enemies from your Arc 3.0 class build.

Lastly, there is Demolitionist which gives back grenade energy and if you are building around abilities combining Demolitionist and Pugilist is a good combo as kills give back both melee and grenade energy.

Brigand’s Law 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
  • Steady Rounds – Gives +15 to Stability and +7 to Airborne effectiveness at the cost of -5 Range

Perk Column 1

  • Perpetual Motion – Grants Stability, Handling, and Reload Speed while in motion
  • Killing Wind – On a kill, gives +20 Range, +50 Mobility, +40 Handling, and a 5% increase in damage falloff distance

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
  • Rangefinder – When aimed down sights gain 10% increased zoom and 30% increase in aim assist falloff distance

Range and Stability are the two stats to look for on a sidearm to bump out your effective range, keep your cursor still, and reduce incoming flinch. Steady Rounds is the only exception that subtracts Range due to the huge Stability boost and the Airborne effectiveness bonus, as sidearms play very well in air.

Column one features Perpetual Motion which is a fantastic neutral game PvP perk as it is activated by not being AFK and grants free stats. Killing Wind gives better stats than Perpetual Motion, but is much harder to come by as a kill is required.

For the second column, Swashbuckler is available for a 33% damage increase on weapon kills and Rangefinder which is a solid neutral game exotic as it extends the range in which the weapon can duel at.

Warp Up

Unfortunately, there are 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 with your grind and chasing your plunder!
