Starting our countdown to number one is Whisper Of The Worm, an exoctic sniper rifle. Whisper Of The Worm is found by completing the quest called “The Whisper”. Which has you go to IO and then join in the public event “Taken Blight” where you will then go and find a Taken Boss, typically located over by the Grove of Ulan-Tan Lost Sector, and kill him. Once you kill him, an anomaly will pop up that you go through to start the rest of the quest.

Having the combination of the perks White Nail and Mulligan make it to where you will hardly ever have to reload this gun. Get 3 precision kills rapidly and it refills your magazine, and if you accidentally miss a shot, there is a chance that it will return shots to your magazine.

In slot number 3 is the IKELOS_SR_V1.0.1 legendary sniper rifle. Found by going through all 7 levels of the Escalation Protocol on Mars. It is one of several different IKELOS weapons that drop, so you may have to do it a few times before you get the sniper rifle.

With the combination of Seraph Rounds, Box Breathing, and Triple Tap you can’t go wrong with this gun. Being able to penetrate shields, and even bounce off hard surfaces, and being able to reload 1 shot back into your magazine after rapidly firing three times is amazing. Not only that but while aiming down the sights, the longer you wait, the longer your range gets. No one stands a chance against you.

  • Rapid-Fire Frame
  • Full Bore or Corkscrew Rifling or Polygonal Rifling
  • Seraph Rounds
