Monte Carlo is an exotic weapon in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep. This auto rifle pairs well with hand to hand combat, as it has perks that reward combining its attacks with melee attacks. It has a simple, elegant design, with a long bayonet at the front, under the barrel. Getting it might be tricky – it’s not especially hard, but it’s a grind. If you’re wondering how to obtain Destiny 2 Monte Carlo exotic auto rifle, this guide will show you just that.
How to get Monte Carlo
The Monte Carlo is a random drop. This means there’s no guaranteed way to get it – you’ll just have to play the game and hope it drops sooner rather than later. You might get it from your first heroic public event in Shadowkeep, or you might play a 100 hours and never see it. As always, try to stick to activities that have a higher chance of dropping exotic gear – like nightfall strikes and heroic public events.
Monte Karlo perks and stats
Description: There will always be paths to tread and methods to try. Roll with it.
The intrinsic perk is called the Monte Carlo Method, and it makes dealing damage with this auto rifle reduce your melee cooldown. It also has a chance to fully charge your melee with each kill. By itself, it’s nothing spectacular. But there’s also a trait there, called Markov Chain, which increases the damage of the auto rifle with each melee kill, while also giving you ammo for melee kills.
This means that the Monte Carlo can be quite a boon in the hands of a skilled Titan – or any player that relies on melee a lot. But that’s all on paper. We’ll see how it holds up after a few days of practical testing.
