Looking for a good riven mod for the hek. Any suggestions?

Firstly OP, the title needs to be changed to correct "help" to "Hek" although a help shotgun sounds nice.

Secondly, you would want to get a +multishot, +crit dmg, +crit chance and a -faction dmg on the riven. 

If you buy from the trade chat, you're gonna need a lot of plat, if you have an unrolled Hek riven, you're gonna need a lot of Kuva. Simply put; GrindFrame

Unless you get a perfect roll Hek will not be good with a riven cause of its poor disposition. 

So your perfect roll will likely have one element (Toxin preferred), damage or multishot and a negative for faction or impact. CC + CD is also acceptable (needs to have both, single won't work). 

Good to have will be some punch through so if you get one of the above and punch through, it will be great too. 

 

Also change the title, people won't get it.

You might wanna think twice with multishot on riven because of diminishing returns. The more same type of mods you have on your weapon, the less effective those mods are. A good Hek build has Scattered Justice and Hell's Chamber, two multishot mods, which give a total of 320% multishot. Also to my knowledge you have only one damage mod since Heavy Caliber is not for shotguns. So I'd go for damage or even elemental damage instead of multishot.

And I'd think twice about buying a Hek riven, it has the lowest disposition meaning the lowest possible stats. You are better off getting Arca Plasmor since it has many advantages and one disadvantage compared to Hek and you get it at MR 10 from dojo. The only thing Hek has and Arca Plasmor doesn't is Scattered Justice mod which gives 200% multishot. Arca Plasmor has a bit higher damage per shot, 10 bullet magazine, innate radiation damage meaning you can get both radiation and corrosive on it which is very useful against all armored targets due to bonus damage multipliers of those elements to armored targets. Arca Plasmor also has a bigger spread than Hek, meaning with the +damage +spread mod you can take out group of enemies in one shot.

So if you are already high enough MR to use rivens, might as well get Arca Plasmor. It also had 3/5 riven disposition instead of 1/5 Hek has.
