Cartesian Coordinate review and best perks | Destiny 2

Where does one end and the other begin?

Cartesian Coordinate is a Rapid-Fire fusion rifle in Destiny 2. Originally only having Auto-Loading Holster, it now has random rolls. Here are the best perks you should look for on Cartesian Coordinate in Destiny 2.

Cartesian Coordinate perks and rolls

Cartesian Coordinate has sight options instead of barrel perks. None of the four options is drastically better than the other, making the sight choice come down to preference. Fusion rifles also have battery perks instead of magazine perks. Always look for Liquid Coils to increase impact. Avoid Accelerated Coils – although this perk decreases charge time, it also lowers the damage per bolt.

Under Pressure provides great stability and accuracy as the magazine gets lower. If you plan on clearing lower-tier enemies, then Feeding Frenzy is great for reload speed. Lead From Gold is a good perk to help with ammo economy.

Vorpal Weapon is your go-to perk in the second column. It boosts your boss damage and helps with killing champions. High-Impact Reserves is also a solid choice, but it only activates towards the end of your magazine. Swashbuckler is a decent damage perk, but it requires kills to get max damage.


Here are the perk combinations and god rolls you should look for on Cartesian Coordinate in Destiny 2:

  • Under Pressure + Vorpal Weapon
  • Under Pressure + High-Impact Reserves
  • Feeding Frenzy + Swashbuckler


Cartesian Coordinate is one of the strongest choices for PvE damage right now. When Vorpal Weapon is combined with the Particle Deconstruction Mod, it has the ability to out-damage some of the exotic fusion rifles. However, it is not a strong pick in PvP activities, where it is often outclassed by shotguns.

Cartesian Coordinate can be obtained through world drops.
