How to get Reckless Endangerment in Destiny 2

There is no shortage of weapons to choose from in Destiny 2. Whether you're looking for the best PvE guns or those that excel in PvP, Bungie's action MMO is built on the foundation of loot chasing. 

Naturally, some weapons are just simply better than others, and it seems the seasonal offering this time around, the Reckless Endangerment shotgun, might be one of the best in the game at the moment. 

Getting the gun might prove to be a grind, but if you want to acquire one of the best close-ranged weapons in Destiny 2 and complete the Dangerous Conduct week 5 seasonal challenge, this is what you need to know about the Reckless Endangerment shotgun.

How to get Reckless Endangerment fast in Destiny 2

There are three ways to unlock the Reckless Endangerment shotgun, which means that if you want to get it as fast as possible, you'll need to target specific activities. 

This being a seasonal weapon, that means you'll have to grind one of the following activities:

  • Vanguard Ops
  • Crucible
  • Gambit

If you want to speed up the process, you can pick up bounties at the Tower to gain XP and reputation with each of the NPCs that grant the Reckless Endangerment shotgun. These are:

  • Zavala for Vanguard Ops
  • Lord Shaxx for Crucible
  • The Drifter for Gambit

All of them will grant you the shotgun once you reach Rank 16.

The fastest to grind is undoubtedly PvP, but if you're not into multiplayer we recommend you pick up daily Zavala bounties and blast through them as quickly as possible. You can pick up to eight daily bounties per day. 

Reckless Endangerment perks and traits

While the Reckless Endangerment doesn't come with random rolls, it does have a unique distinction, and that's having three Origin traits.

Origin traits are activity-specific or manufacturer-based. Some can roll with two, but Reckless Endangerment is one of the few that has three guaranteed.

These are: 

  • Vanguard's Vindication: Final blows with this weapon grant a small amount of health
  • One Quiet Moment: Grants increased reload speed when out of combat
  • Invader Tracker: Damaging the Invader with this weapon marks them for allies

There are more classic traits to choose from including Swashbuckler, Snapshot Sights, Perpetual Motion, and Steady Hands.

The gun also comes with a handling Masterwork by default, so all in all, it's definitely a strong weapon to wield, particularly in Crucible and other PvP activities.
