Destiny 2 Best Raid Weapons 

The Deep Stone Crypt for Destiny 2 finally went live, and with it, a lot of new weapons went live as well.

Raid specific weapons are really unique in nature. They drop from specific raid encounters and are only available to players who have completed that specific encounter. These weapons come with what are known as God Rolls and they enhance the capabilities of the weapon by a lot.

Best Raid Weapons in Destiny 2

#1 Trustee

The trustee is a new legendary scout rifle which is full auto. It has deeper reserves and reloads faster when the magazine is empty. This weapon can be obtained from the Crypt Security encounter in Destiny 2. The curated roll for this weapon "polygonal rifling" gives it additional stability.

The roll "under pressure" increases stability and accuracy as the magazine begins to run low. Overall, this is a pretty interesting weapon to have in Destiny 2. The perk "redirection" causes an increased damage to more powerful combatants if they're killed after weaker combatants.

#2 Commemoration

This is a legendary power machine gun also obtained from the Deep Stone Crypt raid in Destiny 2. This gun forms the perfect alternative for the Hammerhead which isn't available in the game anymore.

This gun comes with the roll "Feeding Frenzy" which increases it's reload speed for a short time for each rapid kill. This weapon drops from the final encounter in the Deep Stone Crypt raid.

#3 Heritage

This is a legendary kinetic shotgun which has a precision frame. It fires a single slug round. The recoil pattern for this weapon however, is vertical.

This weapon comes with the perk "reconstruction" where elemental final blows increase the weapon damage for it's next shot. This weapon drops from the Replication encounter in the Deep Stone Crypt raid.

#4 Succession

This kinetic sniper rifle has an aggressive frame which provides high damage but high recoil as well. This weapon comes with a perk called " No distractions" which reduces flinch while aiming down the sights.

In the final column, this weapon has the "vorpal weapon" perk which provides increased damage against bosses, vehicles and other guardians. This weapon is also obtained from the Deep Stone Crypt raid in Destiny 2.

#5 Posterity

This is a brand new hand cannon introduced in Destiny 2, and it comes with a set of very unique and exclusive perks. The posterity comes with a perk called "genesis" where breaking the shield of an enemy reloads the magazine from its reserves.

Overall, apart from the exotics that the raid drops, these five weapons are absolute beasts in the PvE environment if acquired from the raid. They haven't made it to the meta yet because only a few players have received these weapons in game till now.


Destiny 2: How to Get Deep Stone Crypt Weapons (& God Rolls)

The Deep Stone Crypt Raid weapons are some of the most powerful weapons in Destiny 2. Each of these weapons becomes more powerful with God Rolls.

The Deep Stone Crypt raid weapons are some of the most powerful weapons in Destiny 2, perfect for new or returning players wanting to get better weapons for their arsenal. Destiny 2 has seen a number of changes since these weapons were originally released, and severalupdates to weapons have made them even stronger in Season of the Lost. There are seven weapons for players to earn during the Deep Stone Crypt raid, each with powerful perks.

The Deep Stone Crypt raid offers a Sniper Rifle, Scout Rifle, Hand Cannon, Shotgun, Machine Gun, Sword, and Exotic Rocket Launcher. Eyes of Tomorrow is an Exotic Rocket Launcher that can only be earned by defeating the final boss, Taniks, the Abomination. Each week, Guardians have the opportunity to defeat Taniks and the Deep Stone Crypt once per character to unlock the Eyes of Tomorrow. If they can't get the weapon to drop from the raid, they'll have to wait until the following week to try again.

Every other weapon in the Deep Stone Crypt raid has a lot of utility for PvE and PvP content in Destiny 2. Unlike the Garden of Salvation or Last Wish raids, these weapons can only be earned from specific chests. Guardians will have to open each chest for the first time in the Deep Stone Crypt raid in order for that weapon to become available in future chests. Additionally, only one new weapon per chest can be opened weekly on any character until all weapons have been earned.

Destiny 2: Deep Stone Crypt Weapon God Rolls

These are the Deep Stone Crypt weapons, where they can be found, and their God Rolls:

  • Trustee (Scout Rifle earned from the Crypt Security encounter) - Fluted Barrel, Tactical Magazine, Surplus, Wellspring
  • Succession (Sniper Rifle earned from the Atraks-1 fight) - Fluted Barrel, Tactical Magazine, Moving Target, Snapshot Sight
  • Heritage (Shotgun earned from the Atraks-1 fight) - Arrowhead Brake, Assault Mag, Reconstruction, Recombination
  • Posterity (Hand Cannon earned from the Rapture encounter) - Corkscrew Rifling, Tactical Mag, Rapid Hit, Rampage/Demolitionist
  • Bequest (Sword earned from the Taniks final boss fight) - Honed Edge/Tempered Edge/Jagged Edge, Burst Guard, Tireless Blade, Surrounded
  • Commemoration (Machine Gun earned from the Taniks final boss fight) - Fluted Barrel, Appended Mag, Surplus, Rampage
  • Eyes of Tomorrow (Exotic Rocket Launcher earned from the Taniks final boss fight)

The Trustee, Posterity, and Commemoration are all very strong choices for PvE content. Each of these weapon types received a large increase in PvE damage output for Season of the Lost. Additionally, Heritage's perks Reconstruction and Recombination are fantastic choices for Destiny 2 PvP, including the updated Trials of Osiris. The former reloads the weapon automatically from reserves, while the latter grants an increase in damage range after getting a final blow with an Energy weapon.

Destiny 2: 10 Best Raid Weapons, Ranked

Raids are pinnacle activities in most MMORPGs, tasking a group of players to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds in the hopes of obtaining the best gear that game has to offer.

Related: Destiny 2: The Best Hand Cannons For PvE

Destiny 2 might lack large-scale parties for its Raid activities, but it has a good pool of valuable weapons for players to chase. Many argue that Destiny 2's raid weapons are lacking compared to recent additions. While that can be argued, certain raid Legendaries and Exotics contain perk combinations or synergize with playstyles better than any other weapon available. Ranging from Hand Cannons of Trace Rifles, here are the 15 best raid weapons in Destiny 2.

Updated July 9th, , by Charles Burgar: The Vault of Glass raid released in Season of the Splicer, introducing some fan-favorite weapons from the original Destiny with new perk pools. Some of these weapons are incredible, containing perk combinations that make these weapons the best of their respective archetype. We've added certain VoG weapons to the list that are worth your attention. Each entry will now also state how you can obtain the weapon and any perks you should keep your eyes out for.

10 The Supremacy

How to obtain: Last Wish raid (any encounter and chest)

Returning from the original Destiny, The Supremacy is a Rapid Fire Kinetic Sniper Rifle that is versatile enough to be a solid choice for any activity.

A massive 5 round magazine can be further enhanced with magazine perks, mods, or Triple Tap. It won't beat out most meta PvE weapons, but it can hold its own. For PvP, this weapon is one of Destiny 2's best Sniper Rifles. Snapshot Sights compliments this weapon's low zoom and great aim assist stats nicely, making this a fantastic choice for sniping Guardians in the Crucible. So long as you get a god roll, The Supremacy is able to hang in any activity.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Snapshot Sights, Outlaw (PvE)
  • Column Two: Kill Clip, Triple Tap (PvE)

9 Commemoration

How to obtain: Deep Stone Crypt raid (Atraks encounter)

Every player can use a good Commemoration in their inventory. This Adaptive Frame Heavy Machine Gun is a direct replacement for Black Armory's Hammerhead, packed with an absurd amount of range and a great selection of perks.

Unlike Hammerhead, Commemoration has an arguably stronger selection of perks; Reconstruction and Rampage turn this weapon into a hybrid between 21% Delirium and Hammerhead thanks to the weapon's round magazine when Reconstruction is active. Dragonfly can also roll instead of Rampage, giving this weapon a surprising amount of group-clearing potential. For PvP, any roll works here due to the gun's incredible stat package. If you do want to min-max, Dynamic Sway Reduction and either Rampage or Moving Target are your best bet.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Reconstruction, Dynamic Sway Reduction (PvP)
  • Column Two: Rampage, Dragonfly, Under Pressure (PvP)

8 One Thousand Voices

How to obtain: Last Wish raid (final encounter)

Crafted from the bones of the Ahamkara, One Thousand Voices is an explosive Heavy Exotic Fusion Rifle. Unlike most Fusions, this weapon fires a concentrated beam of energy that explodes after a short delay. It strikes a solid balance between add-clear and single-target DPS without running into ammo issues.

Related: Destiny 2: The Best Fusion Rifles

The weapon's only downside is its acquisition method. To obtain this incredible weapon, you must slay Riven of a Thousand Voices and complete the following encounter to open a chest. If you get your hands on this weapon, One Thousand Voices rewards dedicated raiders with a versatile Fusion Rifle that can clear waves of enemies and minibosses with ease.

However, what makes One Thousand Voices worth a mention is its ability to generate Warmind Cells. While Wrath of Rasputin is equipped, the beam's AoE explosion can make Warmind Cells if you kill enough targets. You can also turn One Thousand Voices into a workhorse weapon with Fusion Rifle Scavenger and finder mods. Despite each mod description, Fusion Rifle Finder mods will spawn Heavy ammo if this gun is equipped. When paired with scavenger mods, you can fire this weapon with reckless abandon, spawn Warmind Cells, and deal respectable damage versus bosses.

7 Corrective Measure

How to obtain: Vault of Glass raid (Conflux, Templar, and Atheon encounters)

Machine Guns might not be in the best spot currently, but Corrective Measure has such a unique perk pool that it's worth chasing. If you love using Machine Guns for add-clear, you're going to love this gun.

Corrective Measure is one of the only Machine Guns that can roll with Subsistence, automatically reloading a portion of your magazine on a kill. You can pair this with One for All for a massive damage boost. Alternatively, you can use Firefly, allowing this weapon to deal both Void and Solar damage. Arguably the most unique roll on this gun is Demolitionist and Adrenaline Junkie, allowing you to create a grenadier build that is supported by your Heavy weapon. It's already a solid Heavy weapon for casual PvE content, but when Machine Guns get buffed next season, expect this weapon to become one of the best Machine Guns for PvE.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Subsistence, Demolitionist
  • Column Two: One for All, Firefly, Adrenaline Junkie (only use with Demolitionist)

6 Praedyth's Revenge

How to obtain: Vault of Glass raid (Oracle and Atheon encounters)

Praedyth's Revenge is the best Legendary Sniper Rifle for boss DPS in Destiny 2. This Rapid-Fire sniper is capable of rolling with Rewind Rounds and High-Impact Reserves, allowing this weapon to fire over a dozen shots before needing to reload. With High-Impact Reserves buffing most of your rounds, Praedyth's Revenge packs a serious punch. It isn't a great choice for PvP due to its inability to roll with Snapshot Sights, but for PvE, this sniper is an excellent choice.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Rewind Rounds
  • Column Two: High-Impact Reserves, Frenzy

5 Fatebringer

How to obtain: Vault of Glass raid (Templar and Gatekeeper encounters)

While Hand Cannons aren't the best for pinnacle PvE content, Fatebringer manages to break the mold with its excellent selection of perks and great stat package. You won't find a better Kinetic Hand Cannon.

The curated roll for Fatebringer comes with Explosive Payload and Firefly, allowing this weapon to one-tap red bars in PvE. Precision final blows will then cause an explosion that deals more damage than unmodded Dragonfly while also granting a reload speed bonus. If general add-clear isn't your cup of tea, you can run Osmosis and Thresh instead. Osmosis is especially interesting since it rolls in the first column, allowing you to use it alongside a damage perk like Kill Clip. This allows Fatebringer to deal Stasis damage, making it an excellent choice for certain Elemental Well builds for PvE.

For PvP, Fatebringer is the best Kinetic you'll find. Its stats alone make it a better alternative to Dire Promise, its only competition in terms of Legendary s. Perks like Killing Wind and Eye of the Storm give Fatebringer a level of consistency that few Hand Cannons can offer, allowing you to chain precision hits against Guardians with relative ease. If you dislike how slow s feel and can't use Palindrome, Fatebringer is an excellent choice.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Explosive Payload, Killing Wind, Osmosis (PvE)
  • Column Two: Firefly (PvE), Eye of the Storm (PvP), Opening Shot (PvP)

4 Heritage

How to obtain: Deep Stone Crypt raid (Atraks-1 and Descent encounters)

Heritage fills a similar niche that Chaperone does but without requiring an Exotic slot. This weapon is a Precision Frame Shotgun that has an absurd amount of range, capable of one-tapping Guardians to the head at 11 meters with the right perks.

Related: Destiny 2: Every Possible Way To Obtain Spoils Of Conquest

Killing Wind and Slideshot gives this weapon nearly 12 meters of range when both perks are active, outranging nearly every other Legendary Shotgun in the game. Better yet, Heritage's excellent handling and sights make landing headshots a breeze. For PvE, it also serves as a great compliment to First In, Last Out since it can roll with Reconstruction and Recombination. This gun is a must for damaging Taniks in the Deep Stone Crypt raid, which is where this weapon drops from.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Reconstruction, Slideshot (PvP)
  • Column Two: Recombination (PvE), Killing Wind (PvP)

3 Succession

How to obtain: Deep Stone Crypt raid (Atraks-1 encounter)

Due to its Aggressive Frame, Succession is capable of one-tapping Guardians with a body shot in PvP if you have a 20% damage buff. Empowering Rifts and High-Energy Fire makes this Sniper Rifle a force to be reckoned with in PvP.

Surprisingly, Succession is a phenomenal PvE Sniper Rifle as well. Reconstruction and Vorpal Weapon make for an excellent combination in Nightfalls and Master Lost Sectors. With the right perks, you can have an eight-round Sniper Rifle output an absurd amount of damage to majors, Champions, and bosses in a single magazine. Guardians that want a good PvE sniper will have a hard time finder a better alternative.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Reconstruction, Killing Wind (PvP)
  • Column Two: Vorpal Weapon, Snapshot Sights (PvP)

2 Divinity

How to obtain: Garden of Salvation raid (requires the Divine Fragmentation quest)

With the removal of stacking buffs and debuffs introduced in Shadowkeep, maintaining debuffs on high-priority targets is near-essential for Destiny 2's Grandmaster Nightfalls and raids.

Those who wish to use something besides Sunbreaker Titans or Nightstalker Hunters should obtain Divinity. This Exotic Trace Rifle sacrifices raw damage output for utility. While Divinity is damaging a target, they will take increased damage atop of precision damage from any source. You can apply this debuff safely from cover while teammates strike the target with high-damage weapons. While it might be locked behind a quest that culminates into a tough challenge in the Garden of Salvation raid, the reward is more than worth the trouble it puts you through.

1 Anarchy

How to obtain: Purchased from the Exotic Kiosk in the Tower. Costs 1 Exotic Cipher, , Glimmer, Spoils of Conquest, and 2 Ascendant Shards.

One of Destiny 2's most unique Exotics is Anarchy, a Grenade Launcher that fires Arc traps instead of explosive ordinance.

Obtained from the Exotic Kiosk for Spoils of Conquest, Anarchy is best utilized as a damage-over-time weapon. Sticking two grenades on a target will deal constant Arc damage for over ten seconds, which gives ample time for the user to switch weapons and output even more damage. These grenades also create electric wires between each other, allowing you to create deadly tripwires on any surface. Better yet, swapping to another weapon will cause Anarchy's grenades to inherit any anti-Champion properties your weapon might have, making this gun the most versatile Exotic in all of Destiny 2.

Destiny 2: Best Deep Stone Crypt Raid Weapons, All 6 Ranked

The Deep Stone Crypt has been out for a while now in Destiny 2: Beyond Light and players are starting to get their hands on the new set of raid weapons. These weapons are perhaps the most unique and game changing raid weapons since probably the Vault of Glass in the original game. Let&#;s go through all of them and rate the best raid weapons to have from the Deep Stone Crypt raid in Destiny 2: Beyond Light and which god rolls you should be shooting for.

6. Bequest &#; Best Deep Stone Crypt Raid Weapons

best deep stone crypt raid weapons

PvE Roll: Thresh & Surrounded

PvP Roll: Thresh & Assassin&#;s Blade

Honestly, Bequest is releasing at an unfortunate time. It&#;s actually one of the better swords in Destiny 2: Beyond Light, on paper, and it looks fantastic like all of the other Deep Stone Crypt raid weapons on this list.

The problem is that it&#;s always going to be in the shadow of Falling Guillotine and The Lament. Heck, it may also not really outshine Temptation&#;s Hook and the unique things it can do.

There&#;s just no way for Bequest to match the raw power of a whirlwind attack from a properly rolled Falling Guillotine or a Banshee&#;s Wail combo from The Lament.

If The Lament wasn&#;t so easy to get, I&#;d say Bequest could at least be a decent stand in until you get a good Falling Guillotine roll, but alas, that&#;s not the case either.

If you&#;re going to use Bequest, use it for its unique perk Thresh, which isn&#;t found on any other sword in both PvE and PvP.

5. Commemoration &#; Best Deep Stone Crypt Raid Weapons

PvE Roll: Reconstruction & Rampage

PvP Roll: Dynamic Sway Reduction & Under Pressure

Commemoration is one of the few non-sunset machine guns left in Destiny 2: Beyond Light. Although it doesn&#;t share the exact same stats as Hammerhead (it lacks its range and aim assist), it does share the same archetype of the famed Black Armory machine gun and that alone should put it on the radar of many guardians.

The RPM adaptive frame archetype just feels like the right balance of power, speed, and magazine size on machine guns, and if you get a roll with Reconstruction, one of the new Deep Stone Crypt raid perks, you&#;ll get a bit of all worlds as well.

Reconstruction allows for a gun to slowly reload on its own, even when stowed, up to double of the gun&#;s normal capacity. That means Commemoration&#;s base 59 round magazine can be doubled and increased even further with Backup Mag and Tactical/Appended Mag.

While Commemoration is number five on this list, mostly because the raid weapons are so good, and machine guns are kind of just &#;fine&#; currently in the meta, as there are so many great add clear weapons and better boss damage weapons, don&#;t sleep on it if you like machine guns. It may surprise you.

4. Trustee &#; Best Deep Stone Crypt Raid Weapons

PvE Roll: Reconstruction & Wellspring

PvP Roll: Surplus & High Impact Reserves

Trustee might be one of the best feeling full-auto scout rifles to be introduced into Destiny since Vision of Confluence.

Trustee is in the Rapid-Fire Frame archetype, which means that it has full-auto intrinsically. Combined with reconstruction and you can have a scout with a base magazine of 34, firing fully automatic and really racking up that sustained primary damage from a safe distance.

Throw on Wellspring to also recharge your abilities while you kill and you have about as good a legendary scout as you can get.

For PvP, use Surplus and High Impact Reserves to just passively boost your stats while you annoyingly plink away at enemies from across the map.

3. Posterity &#; Best Deep Stone Crypt Raid Weapons

best deep stone crypt raid weapons

PvE Roll: Reconstruction & Rampage

PvP Roll: Surplus & Rampage

If you&#;re noticing a trend here, yes Reconstruction is an amazing perk that you&#;ll want if a raid weapon can roll with it, especially in PvE where DPS lives and dies with how often you need to reload.

Posterity is a RPM Precision Frame hand cannon. Not the greatest right now but Posterity, like all of the Deep Stone Crypt raid weapons for the most part, really feels nice to shoot.

What feels even nicer is a potentially massive 34 mag size on a hand cannon if you stack Reconstruction with Backup Mag mod and one of the mag rolls. Pair it with Rampage and you should have no problem keeping Rampage going when you have rounds in the chamber. Truly insane.

RPM hand cannons aren&#;t the greatest in PvP right now as they have a longer TTK compared to other hand cannons and stiff competition from the exotics like Thorn or Ace of Spades, but Surplus & Rampage will likely serve you well; or honestly, the PvE roll isn&#;t bad there either if you just want to non stop shoot and lane with a hand cannon.

2. Succession &#; Best Deep Stone Crypt Raid Weapons

best deep stone crypt raid weapons

PvE Roll: Reconstruction & Vorpal Weapon

PvP Roll: Moving Target & Snapshot Sights

Out of all the Deep Stone Crypt raid weapons on this list, perhaps none are as benefitted by Reconstruction as Succession.

Succession is a High-Impact kinetic sniper. This means its potential to do very high damage is through the roof, but it&#;s limited by its low magazine size. That&#;s normally the trade off.

However, as we know by now, Reconstruction can boost that mag size to at least six or higher, potentially doubling your damage output before you need to reload, making this one of the best legendary sniper rifles for boss phases where sniping is useful, or really anything that you can consistently land critical hits on and has a lot of health to eat all of those shots.

For PvP, high-impacts sniper rifles are a bit gnarly to use because of their stability and handling being rougher than others, but if you can hit your shots then a Moving Target & Snapshot Sights perk combo will help you out big time.

1. Heritage &#; Best Deep Stone Crypt Raid Weapons

best deep stone crypt raid weapons

PvE Roll: Reconstruction & Snapshot Sights/Recombination

PvP Roll: Slideshot & Snapshot Sights/Moving Target

Finally, we arrive at perhaps the most impactful Deep Stone Crypt raid weapon, Heritage. Why is Heritage so great? Well, it&#;s a rare kinetic slug shotgun.

There are only a handful of slug shotguns in the whole game and most of them were sunset, and none of them get to have Reconstruction as a perk. Slug shotguns are one of the highest DPS weapons in the game, so having Reconstruction on one of them is a lethal combo.

We know what Reconstruction does at this point in the article, so by now you should be able to see the value of it on Heritage for bosses that allow you to fire off a full mag of shots, such as the final boss of Deep Stone Crypt.

It also feels great to use, especially if you pair it with Snapshot Sights, but if you want to potentially boost the damage even higher you could try pairing it with Recombination, which will allow elemental final blows to boost the damage of your next shot with Heritage.

In PvP, it works like a standard slug shotgun that you can use in the kinetic slot if you don&#;t want to run The Chaperone for whatever reason. The standard PvP shotgun perks apply here, just pick your favorites and slide baby slide.

Destiny 2&#;s current meta goes through twists and turns as weapons rise in popularity, dominate the raid meta, and then get nerfed. In this guide, we&#;re going to run through the best weapons for PvE and raids in Destiny 2 in as of Beyond Light and Season of the Hunt. We&#;ll start with the best Legendary weapons and then dive into the best exotic weapons for PvE and raid content as well.

Best Legendary Weapons for PvE & Raids in Destiny 2 ()

  • Seventh Seraph SAW (Machine Gun, Power, Arc)
  • Succession (Sniper Rifle, Kinetic)
  • Trustee (Scout Rifle, Energy, Solar)
  • Truthteller (Grenade Launcher, Energy, Void)
  • Vision of Confluence (Energy, Solar)

Before the pitchforks come out, please know that this is not a definitive list of every weapon that is good in PvE Destiny 2. Weapons that are left off this list are not bad or &#;trash.&#;

This is merely a curated greatest hits collection from our various Destiny 2 weapon guides including at least one of nearly every weapon type to help build up your legendary weapon collection with a variety of great guns.

Let&#;s highlight, though, a few of the biggest and best Destiny 2 PvE weapons that are particularly game-changing that you should definitely have.

The most impactful, if you can consistently clear Deep Stone Crypt, are its raid weapons; particularly: Commemoration, Heritage, Posterity, Succession, and Trustee.

These weapons, thanks to the unique perk Reconstruction that they can all roll with, are all among the best PvE legendary weapons in Destiny 2 right now as of Beyond Light. Collect them all with Reconstruction and that can be the backbone of your legendary weapon collection.

You&#;re also going to want to get a good roll of Falling Guillotine with something like Whirlwind Blade and Tireless Blade. Swords are among the best PvE legendary weapons right now in Destiny 2 and Falling Guillotine is by far the best legendary sword you can have. Having that as a solid boss DPS weapon frees up your exotic slot for something else if you wish.

Finally, it&#;s also worth highlighting the Seventh Seraph and Ikelos weapons which are notable because of the ease in which they can create Warmind Cells for builds that are based around those mods. The ones listed above are arguably the best of those family of weapons, but any well-rolled Ikelos or Seventh Seraph weapon is worth hanging onto.

Best Exotic Weapons for PvE & Raids in Destiny 2 ()

best pve exotics destiny 2, best weapons
  • Anarchy (Grenade Launcher, Power, Arc)
  • Cloudstrike (Sniper Rifle, Energy, Arc)
  • Dead Man’s Tale (Scout Rifle, Kinetic)
  • Divinity (Trace Rifle, Energy, Arc)
  • Eriana&#;s Vow (Hand Cannon, Energy, Solar)
  • Eyes of Tomorrow (Rocket Launcher, Power, Solar)
  • Izanagi&#;s Burden (Sniper Rifle, Kinetic)
  • Jotunn (Fusion Rifle, Energy, Solar)
  • Monte Carlo (Auto Rifle, Kinetic)
  • No Time to Explain (Pulse Rifle, Kinetic)
  • One Thousand Voices (Fusion Rifle, Power, Solar)
  • Outbreak Perfected (Pulse Rifle, Kinetic)
  • Riskrunner (SMG, Energy, Arc)
  • Sunshot (Hand Cannon, Energy, Solar)
  • The Huckleberry (SMG, Kinetic)
  • The Lament (Sword, Power, Solar)
  • The Fourth Horseman (Shotgun, Energy, Arc)
  • Ticuu’s Divination (Bow, Energy, Solar)
  • Traveler&#;s Chosen (Sidearm, Kinetic)
  • Trinity Ghoul (Bow, Energy, Arc)
  • Vex Mythoclast (Energy, Solar, Exotic)
  • Whisper of the Worm (Sniper Rifle, Power, Solar)
  • Witherhorde (Grenade Launcher, Kinetic)
  • Xenophage (Machine Gun, Power, Solar)

Same disclaimer as for the legendary weapons, let&#;s look at the best exotic weapons for Destiny 2&#;s PvE scene that you&#;ll want to have in your arsenal ASAP.

Let&#;s mention a few of the absolutely critical weapons when it comes to difficult PvE encounters such as Nightfalls and raids right away first: Anarchy, Divinity, Eriana&#;s Vow, The Lament, and Xenophage.

With those five exotic weapons in hand, there&#;s really nothing you won&#;t be able to do when it comes to boss damage for anything remotely difficult in Destiny 2&#;s PvE scene.

Drilling down a bit further from there are the three exotic snipers: Cloudstrike, Izanagi&#;s Burden, and Whisper of the Worm. In a situation where you need to do long-range DPS and Xenophage isn&#;t as good an option, you won&#;t go wrong with using one of those three exotics.

As far as clearing out waves of enemies quickly, another situation you&#;re going to want to consider using your exotic weapon for: Eyes of Tomorrow, The Huckleberry, Trinity Ghoul and Witherhorde stand out above the rest.

Riskrunner is also just as good if you are fighting Fallen (and to a lesser extent Hive) to get its exotic chain lightning attacks rolling by taking Arc damage. If you&#;re a big hand cannon fan, Sunshot can also be quite destructive in the add clearing role.

Finally, popular exotics that are among the best for ability builds include Monte Carlo for anything melee-centered, and Traveler&#;s Chosen which helps recharge all of your abilities.

That&#;s all for our picks for the best legendary weapons for PvE and raids in Destiny 2 and the best exotics for PvE and raids as of the current meta in Beyond Light and Season of the Chosen. Did we leave out something that&#;s your favorite? Let us know in the comments below.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light - Every Deep Stone Crypt Raid Weapon, Ranked

Destiny 2: Beyond Light has brought major changes to the loot structure of Destiny 2 as a whole. Major parts of the game were removed including planets and weapons. To make up for this, the new gear Bungie added in Beyond Light is incredibly strong.

RELATED: Destiny 2: 10 Builds You Need To Try In Beyond Light

The Deep Stone Crypt raid has the strongest weapons in the game currently, some of which could go toe-to-toe with older Pinnacle weapons. Exclusive perks, great perk combinations, and a devastating Exotic are more than enough reasons to farm this raid. For those looking for the best guns, here are all of the Deep Stone Crypt raid's weapons ranked from worst to best in Destiny 2: Beyond Light.

Updated December 24th, by Charles Burgar: Build variety is stronger than ever thanks to Beyond Light's new suite of perks and weapons.

How to obtain: Drops from Taniks, the Abomination. Can also be purchased from the Abomination Spoils cache.

Arguably the only mediocre weapon tied to the new raid, Bequest is an Arc Sword that packs a serious punch with each swing thanks to its perk pool.

Thresh and En Garde make for an interesting combination, allowing your Heavy ammo to give you Super energy while providing the highest damage per swing out of any Legendary Sword in the game. The overall DPS of this weapon is sadly worse than Falling Guillotine or the Lament, which means its unlikely Bequest will see much use in people's loadouts in the near future.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Tireless Blade, Relentless Strikes
  • Column Two: Surrounded (PvE), Assassin's Blade

6 Trustee

How to obtain: Drops from the Crypt Security encounter. Can also be purchased from the Security Spoils cache.

For a Scout Rifle, Trustee has certainly made an impact in PvE and PvP. Due to its Rapid-Fire Frame and excellent scope, Trustee has taken over the role of Randy's Throwing Knife in Destiny 2' sandbox.

Perks on this weapon are mixed. Only two damage perks exist on this gun: High-Impact Reserves and Redirection. Redirection might give a 2x damage bonus when it has five or more stacks, but that is rarely enough to one-tap majors. High-Impact Reserves is excellent in PvP since it allows this weapon to four-tap Guardians—matching the TTK of most slower RPM Scout Rifles. Instead of obtaining damage, Guardians should focus on obtaining a roll with Reconstruction and Wellspring to make Trustee an ability-generating machine.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Reconstruction, Killing Wind, Zen Moment (controller)
  • Column Two: Wellspring, Redirection (PvE), High-Impact Reserves (PvP)

5 Succession

How to obtain: Drops from Atraks-1, Fallen Exo. Can also be purchased from the Replication Spoils cache.

Fans of Aggressive Frame Sniper Rifles need to obtain a good roll of the new Succession Sniper Rifle. This Kinetic weapon packs a serious punch, capable of rolling with Vorpal Weapon or the new Recombination perk.

Recombination grants very little damage in PvP to warrant using, but it can be used to gain up to a % damage boost in PvE. Reconstruction can also roll on this weapon alongside a damage perk, allowing Succession to obtain an eight or ten-round magazine that is buffed by Vorpal Weapon. PvE players will want to obtain this weapon to make boss DPS phases go a little bit smoother.

PvP players can also take advantage of this weapon's ability to roll with both Killing Wind and Snapshot Sights. The responsiveness of Succession after a kill is close to what Beloved used to provide. Combine this with Whisper of Hedrons, High-Energy Fire, or an Empowering Rift to one-tap Guardians to the chest in PvP.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Reconstruction, Killing Wind (PvP), Moving Target (PvP)
  • Column Two: Vorpal Weapon (PvE), Recombination (PvE), Snapshot Sights (PvP)

4 Posterity

How to obtain: Drops from the Descent raid encounter. Can also be purchased from the Disarmament Spoils cache.

Not Forgotten has returned in the form of Posterity, an Arc RPM Hand Cannon that has a fantastic suite of perks to roll from. Even if you hate RPM Hand Cannons, Posterity is strong enough to warrant giving it a try.

Reconstruction and One for All is an absurdly strong combination in PvE, doubling your magazine while granting a 33% damage buff after hitting three enemies, lasting ten seconds when activated. As long as you can activate another damage buff like Whisper of Hedrons, Posterity can rival the damage output of most Adaptive or Aggressive Frame Hand Cannons while maintaining its pinpoint accuracy.

Posterity shines even brighter inside of the Crucible. A roll with Killing Wind and Rampage turns this weapon into Not Forgotten, allowing it to comfortable three-tap Guardians from absurdly long distances. If Rampage is coupled with Whisper of Hedrons or High-Energy Fire, Posterity can even two-tap Guardians as pre-nerf Not Forgotten was capable of! Don't let its suboptimal weapon frame dissuade you from farming this gun; Posterity is easily one of the best Hand Cannons in Destiny 2 currently.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Rapid Hit, Killing Wind, Reconstruction
  • Column Two: Rampage, Demolitionist, One for All (PvE)

3 Eyes Of Tomorrow

How to obtain: Has a 10% chance to drop after defeating Taniks, the Abomination. It can only drop on your first completion per character per week.

Gjallarhorn is arguably the most iconic weapon in the Destiny franchise due to its rarity at launch and the unethical amount of damage it could dish out every shot. It's sad that Gjallarhorn will likely never return in Destiny 2, but that's OK. We have Eyes of Tomorrow to take its place.

Eyes of Tomorrow is Destiny 2's take on the mythical Rocket Launcher. Instead of firing a rocket that splits into miniature explosives that track, Eyes of Tomorrow cuts out the middle man and fires a volley of six rockets at once that can individually track targets. The tracking on Eyes of Tomorrow is aggressive, almost on par with Truth with its ability to curve around walls.

Unlike most Rocket Launchers, Eyes of Tomorrow deals a great deal of damage with every shot. This weapon has one of the highest burst DPS values in the game, has respectable sustained DPS against bosses, and can be further enhanced thanks to the Adaptive Ordnance perk—which grants a 50% damage increase to your next volley after you kill four enemies with any weapon, not just Eyes of Tomorrow (this is likely a bug). Considering it deals Solar splash damage, Eyes of Tomorrow is also eligible for spawning Warmind Cells when coupled with the Wrath of Rasputin Combat Style Mod.

With all of those positives, why isn't this the top entry on the list? Sadly, Eyes of Tomorrow has a severe damage penalty against raid and Nightfall bosses, making it a subpar choice for boss DPS. Worse, the time it takes to fire this gun is enough for someone to kill you in the Crucible, which makes Wardcliff Coil an objectively better option in that environment. If you're lucky enough to get this weapon to drop, however, few weapons can match the raw damage that Eyes of Tomorrow can dish out in PvE and Gambit.

2 Heritage

How to obtain: Drops from Atraks-1, Fallen Exo. Can also be purchased from the Replication Spoils cache.

Chaperone finally has some serious competition with the release of the Heritage Kinetic Shotgun. It is effectively a Legendary Chaperone: it fires slugs, has an absurdly long range for a Shotgun, and gains increased effective range after a kill.

For that final part to occur, you will need a Heritage with Killing Wind. Slideshot also pairs nicely with Killing Wind inside of PvP. With both perks active, Heritage can reach nearly 12 meters of effective range.

Reconstruction and Recombination can roll on this weapon, making this a fantastic Shotgun for DPS phases or killing majors. It isn't uncommon to have 12 rounds at the ready thanks to Reconstruction. Recombination just makes the burst DPS even higher by granting a devastating initial Shotgun blast that deals nearly twice as much damage. Every player should farm for a good Heritage roll.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Reconstruction, Slideshot (PvP)
  • Column Two: Recombination (PvE), Killing Wind (PvP), Snapshot Sights (PvP)

1 Commemoration

How to obtain: Drops from Taniks, the Abomination. Can also be purchased from the Abomination Spoils cache.

Commemoration is a perfect blend between Hammerhead and 21% Delirium. As an Adaptive Frame, Commemoration has the same range, aim assist, and overall damage that one would expect from Hammerhead. However, some of its perks also turn this weapon into a slower version of 21% Delirium.

Rampage and Recombination can roll on this weapon, giving it a 33% damage buff after killing three enemies. Recombination is the real star of the show, allowing Commemoration to reach a magazine capacity of to rounds. Guardians can fire this weapon for an extended period of time without ever needing to reload, making Commemoration the closest replacement to 21% Delirium the Destiny community has seen thus far.

PvE players will want this weapon for its great group clearing potential. PvP players will want this gun for its absurd aim assist and range stats inherited from Hammerhead. Gambit players will also want Commemoration since it is virtually the same as Hammerhead but has a higher infusion cap. No matter what activities you enjoy, Commemoration is sure to impress.

Recommended Traits:

  • Column One: Reconstruction, Dynamic Sway Reduction (PvP, controller)
  • Column Two: Rampage, Dragonfly (PvE), Moving Target (PvP)

Destiny 2 Deep Stone Crypt Loot Table: Raid Weapons &#; Armor

Raids are supposed to be the pinnacle activity of any self-respecting MMO. They&#;re supposed to be hard and require well-coordinated teams, but they&#;re also supposed to award the best loot out there.

And I&#;m happy to confirm the Deep Stone Crypt raid checks all the boxes.

In this post, we&#;ll cover all the loot locked behind every encounter of the Deep Stone Crypt Raid, including some of the best weapons in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 Deep Stone Crypt Loot Table

This table covers all the Deep Stone Crypt loot per encounter, including weapons and armor:

On top of rewarding loot when completing encounters, the raid also has 2 hidden chests and a brand-new cache system called the Cache of the Crypt using Spoils of Conquest.

Deep Stone Crypt hidden chests

There are two hidden chests in the Deep Stone Crypt, and each has the chance to reward with you the following Mods:

  • Enhanced Operator Augment
  • Enhanced Scanner Augment
  • Enhanced Suppressor Augment
  • Herd Thinner

Or with any Weapon or Armor piece already acquired from prior successful encounters.

Instead of trying to explain where these two hidden chests are, I leave you with this great video guide from Jarv:

The new Cache of the Crypt

Once you have defeated the final boss, you&#;ll see a thing appear called Cache of the Crypt right next to the usual chest that spawns once an encounter is over.

This Cache of the Crypt is a great addition to the game as it lets you use Spoils of Conquest (the new raid currency) to purchase specific weapons and armor.

Cache of the Crypt Destiny 2 1

Purchasing a weapon or armor you have already found costs only 20 Spoils of Conquest, which can be earned from completing a full Raid, any Raid, including Garden of Salvation and Last Wish. This gives you more opportunities to find good rolls on the specific weapons you&#;re interested in.

On top of that, the Cache also offers Crypt Caches for a chance to get something you haven&#;t found before. I haven&#;t purchased one yet, but I would think twice before spending 60 Spoils of Conquest on one, especially when purchasing a weapon or an armor piece costs only 20 Spoils of War&#;

All Destiny 2 Deep Stone Crypt Weapons: Ranked

It is undeniable that every single weapon from the Deep Stone Crypt is top tier. A quick YouTube search will result in hundreds of raving reviews for these weapons.

Bungie definitely got it just right: These weapons have unique perks, great stats, and worthy of a raid.  The DSC raid may not be the hardest in Destiny 2, but it&#;s still a challenge for the average player. We certainly hope the upcoming Vault of Glass raid will follow the lead.

PS: if getting a 6-man Fireteam together is too difficult for you, the returning Prophecy dungeon has some great loot in stores too!

We review in detail every single one of these weapons in our official DSC Weapons Tier list. For now, this is an overview of all the excellent weapons from the DSC, from weakest to strongest:

The Last Word

It has to be said that Bungie did a great job with the Deep Stone Crypt and its loot. Every single one of these weapons is great and some of them are without a doubt best-in-class.

If you were waiting for another reason to give the new raid a shot, these weapons should do it. What are the god rolls you&#;re chasing? I&#;m definitely looking for any of these (except the scout) with Reconfiguration!
