How to get Taraxippos & its God Roll in Destiny 2

A new Legendary!

Taraxippos is a Legendary Scout Rifle added in the Destiny 2 Guardian Games 2023, and it's become a favorite of mine. Its 200RPM fire speed and Lightweight Frame Archetype make it a popular contender in both PvE and PvP for getting that higher kill/death ratio! Here's how to get Taraxippos in Destiny 2.

Where to get Taraxippos in Destiny 2

The Legendary Scout Rifle Taraxippos, named after a spirit in Greek mythology that got its kicks out of scaring horses during the ancient Olympic Games, is obtained through the Destiny 2 Guardian Games 2023.

You can earn a curated roll by completing the Talented Scout Triumph on the Guardian Games 2023 Event Card. But if you're after its God Roll, you'll want to bank as many Medallions at the Tower as possible in hopes of getting a random drop. Good luck, Guardian!

Taraxippos PvE and PvP God Rolls in Destiny 2

You'll want to grind out as many Taraxippos as possible to increase your odds of obtaining a God Roll drop. And depending on what your intended use is for the weapon will determine which God Roll you go for: PvE or PvP. I personally play a lot of Competitive PvP, so I'll be going for a roll with Explosive Payload to create an AoE (Area of Effect) and hopefully kill two birds with one stone—or two Guardians with one bullet.
