New Hung Jury Adept Scout Rifle in Destiny 2 Season 20

Hung Jury God Roll S20 – The Hung Jury SR4 (Adept) is a Kinetic Legendary Scout Rifle introduced in Destiny 2 Season 14: Season of the Splicer. The weapon has returned as the reward for this week’s Grandmaster Nightfall rotation in Proving Grounds – so now is the perfect opportunity to discuss what perks you should look forward to farming on your Hung Jury.

In this Destiny 2 God Roll Guide, we’ll look at the optimal perk combinations of the Hung Jury (Adept) that will make the gun your go-to weapon for any PvP and PvE activity in Season 20!

Scout Rifles are one of the go-to weapons in PvE for high-difficulty endgame content in Destiny 2, where you’ll need to deal maximum damage while keeping a safe distance from your enemies. Here is the PvE God Roll for the new Hung Jury SR4 (Adept):

  • Barrel: Arrowhead Brake/Fluted Barrel
  • Magazine: Flared Magwell
  • Trait #1: Shoot to Loot/Rapid Hit
  • Trait #2: Kinetic Tremors
  • Masterwork: Handling/Reload Speed
  • Mod: Adept Big Ones Spec

We’re prioritizing the Hung Jury’s Handling and Reload Speed while eliminating its recoil for optimum usage in PvE activities. Shoot to Loot provides excellent utility by enabling you to pick up ammo (and soon Orbs of Power, too) while maintaining a safe distance from your enemies, and it pairs really well with Kinetic Tremors – a new perk introduced in Season 20. With this perk combo, every six shots landed on a target will trigger damaging shockwaves on them that will also pick up any ammo (as well as Orbs of Power in S21) on the ground over a 5-meter radius. Finally, the ‘Adept Big Ones Spec’ weapon mod increases your damage against Powerful Combatants and Bosses. Don’t forget that, with the artifact mod equipped, a Scout Rifle like the Hung Jury is an excellent choice to counter Unstoppable Champions in Season 20!

Scout Rifles are the meta in Destiny 2 PvP right now, and even if you aren’t a fan of Crucible, Iron Banner, or Trials of Osiris, having a PvP God Roll Hung Jury Adept ready in your Guardian’s arsenal never hurts. While the notion of a ‘perfect god roll’ is different for every playstyle, here are my recommendations:

  • Barrel: Small Bore
  • Magazine: Accurized Rounds
  • Trait #1: Rapid Hit
  • Trait #2: Box Breathing
  • Masterwork: Stability
  • Mod: Adept Range

As you can see from the list of perks above, we’re going with a build that enhances the Scout Rifle’s Stability and Range – two stats that are crucial in any PvP engagement. ‘Rapid Hit’ complements this idea by improving both Reload Speed and Stability with each precision hit. ‘Box Breathing’ is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated Scout Rifle perks, and you’ll never realize how much harder it makes the Hung Jury hit until you use it. It boosts the damage of your opening shot by a whopping 66% once you proc it by aiming down sights for 1.5 seconds. You can potentially two-tap any enemy (at range!) if you land your shots. True Vanguard demonstrates this exceptionally well in this video:

How to Get the Hung Jury SR4 (Adept) in Destiny 2 Season 20

The Hung Jury Adept is this week’s guaranteed reward for clearing the Proving Grounds Nightfall at Grandmaster difficulty. You can also obtain the non-Adept version of the returning Scout Rifle by completing the Nightfall in lower difficulties – Hero/Legend/Master.

Proving Grounds is the first Vanguard Strike in Season 20’s weekly Grandmaster Nightfall cycle, which went live on April 11, 2023, at 9:00 AM PST/12:00 AM EST. You have exactly one week to grind for the best rolls for the Scout Rifle in the GM NF before it’s removed from the rotation next Tuesday.

The Hung Jury (Adept) is one of Destiny 2’s top 180 RPM Legendary-rarity Kinetic Scout Rifles, and it’s well worth grabbing if you enjoy using long-range weapons. Because it is a Grandmaster Nightfall-exclusive weapon, it will be a long time until it is available again after it is removed from the reward rotation next week. Best of luck with your grind, Guardian!
