Destiny 2 Lingering Dread God Roll Guide – PvE and PvP

Blinded and slowed.
This article is over 2 years old and may contain outdated information

Whenever a new breach-loaded grenade launcher is released in Destiny 2, there’s a chance that it might become a top-tier weapon choice. Enter Lingering Dread, a new stasis-powered grenade launcher introduced in the Duality dungeon that has been stopping Guardians in their tracks. Lingering Dread is the first of its kind and comes with the new Bitterspite origin trait, which grants you faster reload speeds after taking any amount of damage.

In PvE, Lingering Dread has the potential to become a top-tier pick for both easier content and pinnacle content alike due to its ability to both slow and blind enemies with the right trait combinations. In PvP, Lingering Dread isn’t a very good pick as breach-loaded grenade launchers are very much out of meta. You can pull off some fun plays if you manage to direct hit enemies with Lingering Dread.

Where and how to get Lingering Dread

Lingering Dread is only available from the Duality dungeon in the Derelict Leviathan. While participating in the Duality dungeon, you will be able to get drops of Lingering Dread from the “Nightmare of Gahlran” and “Nightmare of Caiatl” encounters. Luckily, Bungie has made all raids and dungeons in Destiny 2 farmable, meaning you can repeat the above encounters as many times as you want, and you will continue to get random drops of the Lingering Dread grenade launcher.
