KEY POINTS

  • Unforgiven can roll with priority perks like Adrenaline Junkie and Golden Tricorn
  • The weapon stumbles slightly in the Crucible
  • Void builds can make heavy use of the Unforgiven as the primary weapon of choice

Last season, “Destiny 2” players went crazy over the Funnelweb, a 900 RPM Void SMG that dominated the PvE sphere thanks to its rate of fire and the seasonal Volatile Flow mod. Many regarded the Funnelweb as the best PvE weapon in the game, but in “Season of the Haunted,” it had some stiff competition.

The Unforgiven is a new 750RPM Void SMG that falls under the Aggressive Frame category. It deals more damage per shot, and as far as aesthetics are concerned, it looks and feels a lot chunkier than the Funnelweb does. However, there’s much more to it that players might be interested in.

Now that Bungie unlocked the Duality dungeon weapons in the API, everyone can now take a closer look at the Unforgiven without actually having to own one.

The SMG comes with barrel perks and magazine options that include fan favorites like Ricochet Rounds, Light Mag and High-Caliber Rounds. However, the most interesting perks for this weapon lie in the third and fourth columns.

What makes Unforgiven unique is that it is one of the only weapons in the game that can roll with Demolitionist and Adrenaline Junkie. It can also roll with the new Repulsor Brace perk, which grants a Void Overshield whenever a Void-debuffed target is defeated.

Speaking of DPS, Unforgiven can roll with Golden Tricorn. This perk grants up to 50% extra damage whenever the user scores a Void ability kill. The only other Void SMG that has Golden Tricorn is Shayura’s Wrath, and sadly, it’s no longer available in the Trials loot pool.

When comparing the Unforgiven to the Funnelweb, it’s clear that the former has a better selection of perks for PvE. Unforgiven is also easier to target-farm since it drops from Duality’s second and third encounters.

However, the weapon pales in comparison to the Funnelweb in PvP, as the latter can roll with a higher range stat (thanks to Rangefinder), and it has a more competitive TTK.

Overall, the Unforgiven is incredibly powerful in PvE if players get the right rolls. It synergizes with most Void builds, and its damage potential can skyrocket when Golden Tricorn is fully powered. Players who are looking for a new workhorse weapon should definitely give this SMG a try.
