How to get Bequest this Season

Bequest drops from the final encounter in the Deep Stone Crypt raid. Our recommendation is to wait until DSC becomes the week’s featured raid and then attempt the raid. Remember that you can use the checkpoint bots to jump into specific encounters of a Raid or a Dungeon.

Bequest is also a craftable weapon. Collecting 5 Deepsights will unlock its pattern and allow you to shape it in the Enclave. If you are planning to min-max the whole team composition before heading into the activity, make sure to get the enhanced version of the Surrounded perk. Luckily, you can now level the weapon up by simply spending resources, so this shouldn’t take you too long.

How good is Bequest

At first glance, Bequest is just your simple Adaptive Frame arc sword. And until Crota’s End was released, no one really cared about it. Now, it is considered to be the most consistent way to one-phase Crota surpassing other swords like Lament or Falling Guillotine.

The thing that sets the Bequest apart is it’s incredibly high Impact Stat. If Masterworked, Bequest can reach 78 Impact, the same as The Lament Exotic, and much higher than every other Legendary sword out there. This results in insane DPS, especially in encounters such as Crota.

Best Bequest Rolls for PvE and PvP

Bequest PvE god roll

  • Blade: Jagged Edge
  • Guard: Swordmaster’s Guard
  • Perk 1: Relentless Strikes
  • Perk 2: Surrounded
  • Masterwork: Impact

Regardless of where you go, this is the only god roll for Bequest. Jagged Edge for more damage and Swordmaster’s Guard because you will mostly use the sword on stunned targets like Crota. If you don’t, then Balanced Guard will do fine too.

As for the perks, Relentless Strikes will compensate for the additional ammo costs of Jagged Edge. And the Surrounded will grant you more damage when three or more enemies are nearby. An important note about the Surrounded perk, you have to make sure you leave a couple of ads when dealing damage to take advantage of the perk. It can be tricky, but otherwise, you waste a lot of DPS potential.

Bequest PvP god roll

  • Blade: Honed Edge
  • Guard: Burst Guard
  • Perk 1: Tireless Blade
  • Perk 2: Assassin’s Blade
  • Masterwork: Impact

You are probably not here for a PvP roll because swords in PvP are… impractical. Either way, you can try and take it to the Crucible, just don’t expect much.

We went for a Honed Edge to get a damage boost without any sacrifices, paired with Burst Guard for higher resistance. Both are not set in stone, so try to experiment to find a perfect combination that works for you.

Our perks are focused on you getting a kill and then snowballing from that. Because let’s be honest, if you don’t get a kill in PvP with a sword, you are dead. Tireless Blade gives you extra ammo, and Assassin’s Blade boosts movement speed and damage all after securing a kill.

Bequest: Is it worth farming?

For PvE, especially for the Crota fight in the Crota’s End raid, this is the best sword you can find. Combine it with a Tractor Cannon, a Well of Radiance, and any other damage-increasing ability, and you will deal a massive amount of damage.
