What Is Hammerhead?
The Hammerhead is a legendary machine gun that was unveiled during the 5th season of Destiny 2. This is one of the most competitive weapons alongside The Recluse for both PvP and PvE and ranks at the top on the PvP charts. This powerful machine gun is the 1st black armoury weapon created by a Guardian. It is one of the two machine guns currently available in Destiny after the exotic Thunderbird. Hammerhead has random roll perks, and therefore cannot be re-acquired from collections.
The hammerhead comes equipped with an adaptive frame making it well-rounded, reliable, and sturdy. The hammer-forged ranging allows you to hit over longer distances. With the armour-piercing rounds, all you need are two shots to down your enemy. These rounds also tend to cause severe damage to the enemy’s shield and over-penetrate targets. It also comes with two notable traits; the “Feeding Frenzy” and “Rampage.” The “Feeding Frenzy” will increase your reload speed for a short time after kills, whereas “Rampage” grants increased damage post two successive kills.
This legendary machine gun is an adaptive frame with a well-rounded grip. This is a full 50 round permanent machine gun and fits 60 in the magazine. This runs perfectly with added perks such as surrounded, high-impact reserves, and quick-draw, along with a few other options.
