Best perks for the Wastelander M5 Shotgun | Destiny 2

Wastelander M5 is a Tex Mechanica shotgun in Destiny 2, and as a Lightweight frame, it fires at 80 RPM and boosts movement speed when equipped.  Here are the best perks you should look for on Wastelander M5 in Destiny 2.

Perks and rolls

Range is the name of the game for Shotguns. In terms of barrel perks look for Rifled Barrel, Smallbore, or Corkscrew Rifling. Accurized Round is the top dog magazine perk, but Assault Mag is just as deadly.

Perpetual Motion is a great perk to pair with this weapon. It plays into a high movement playstyle, which synergizes with the frame move speed bonus. Slideshot is great for boosting range and partially reloads the magazine. If you plan on killing lots of enemies, then Subsistence is a great way to avoid reloading.

Your two damage perk options are Trench Barrel and One-Two Punch. Both require melees to activate, but One-Two Punch will provide a higher damage output. If you want to take this weapon into PvP, then look for Opening Shot for that bonus range and accuracy. Killing Wind is also a solid stat-boosting perk.

Is Wastelander M5 any good?

Shotguns are not strong in the current Destiny 2 meta. However, the combination of cool animations and insane range makes you feel like a cowboy in the wild west. It has a solid balance of perks that are suitable for both PvE and PvP. Wastelander M5 drops from Dares of Eternity and Xur’s Treasure Hoard.
