  3. Focus Iron Engrams for a better roll.

    After claiming an Iron Engram, you can now focus on your engram and buy yourself more copies of Riiswalker until you reach the roll you want. However, you must have earned at least one Riiswalker prior to buying one from Lord Saladin.

What is the God Roll for Riiswalker?

There are a few noteworthy combos of perks that can make Riiswalker into a top-tier weapon. But of course, every gun must have the best roll. According to, the highest rated pair of perks considered the “God Roll” for the weapon is Surplus, and Iron Reach. Surplus gives increased handling, reload speed, and stability for each fully charged ability, while Iron Reach massively improves weapon range at the cost of weapon stability. This perk combination allows the weapon to have a higher range and handling stat than the majority of the shotguns in the game. It’s no surprise it has dominated the crucible for multiple seasons now.

Can you Craft Riiswalker?

Unfortunately, no, you aren’t able to craft it at this time. This applies to all other Iron Banner weapons as well. However, Bungie has said in a previous TWAB that there could be a possibility in a future season for Iron Banner weapons to become craftable. If and when they do become craftable in the future, we’ll be sure to update you with the information.
