Recommended Reforge Perks

Counterbalance
This will provide a 9% bonus to recoil control. Unfortunately the base stability is below average (similar to Payback SOS), so the increased control you’ll gain from this perk is crucial.

Perfect Balance or Fitted Stock
Either of these column 5 perks will increase the stability, which is very much needed for the high rate of fire archetype.

Third Eye or Rangefinder
Third Eye will be most useful in PvP, this is going to allow you to keep an ‘eye’ on your radar at all times, increasing your awareness.

With the worst range out of Legendary auto rifles, you’ll benefit greatly from Rangefinder.

The Good

Being in the high rate of fire/low impact archetype, Silimar’s Wrath is incredibly useful against groups of trash mobs like Thrall. It’s got a lot of potential in the Crucible with enough stability upgrades.

You’ll be able to empty the magazine in just 4.4 seconds, sometimes disorienting other Guardians by just how fast the bullets are flying at them.

Its reload speed is also well above average at just under 2 seconds.


It’s also got a decent amount of aim assistance if that’s something you’re looking for.

Thankfully it comes standard with Counterbalance and Perfect Balance, so if you can’t afford to Reforge this, those perks will definitely help out with its poor base stability.

The Bad

Essentially a copy of Atheon’s Epilogue without the elemental damage, it is incredibly weak at any range greater than 10 feet on the account of its recoil and low damage per bullet.

It’s base stability is horrible, but at least better than Payback SOS.


The range is where this weapon really needs an improvement, only higher than Necrochasm by 1 point.

With such low Impact, it usually takes an entire magazine in PvE to down a tier 2 enemy.

The default Snapshot, Single Point Sling, and Glass Half Full perks seem like a waste. Glass Half Full is an especially poor choice since it doesn’t provide any additional damage in PvP, and only 3-10 more damage in PvE.

You’ll want to try to either improve the damage more substantially with Crowd Control, add more awareness with Third Eye, or improve the pitiful range with Rangefinder.

Conclusion

Like most of the weapons forged by the Lords of Iron beneath the Iron Banner, Silimar’s Wrath is very aesthetically appealing with its silver and gold color scheme. But when it comes down to performance and usability, there’s just so many better choices.

Check out our top 5 Legendary auto rifle listing to see our picks.

For PvP this weapon earns a 7/10 and for PvE a 7.2/10.
