These are the different Tier levels used for this ranking:

  • S Tier – Best: Highest ranking weapon types.
  • A Tier – Strong: Very strong weapon types, but not on the same level as S Tier Choices.
  • B Tier – Average: Decent choices that can be lethal in the hands of a skilled player.
  • C Tier – Weak: The middle of the pack, somewhat mediocre.
  • D Tier – Worst: Lagging behind the competition, these don’t have much to offer.

Dares of Eternity loot rotation: How to farm it

With The Witch Queen, Strange Coins can no longer be earned from completing activities in the game. This means farming Dares of Eternity loot became much harder. That said, the situation is finally improving. With the release of Season of the Haunted (S17):

Increased Strange Coins earned from the reward chest in Dares of Eternity from 1 to 3. This does not affect the number of Strange Coins earned from Lightning Round chests.

This won’t bring us back to when Bungie’s 30th Anniversary launched, but it will certainly help ease the process.

Pinnacle and Powerful rewards

Finally, as an added bonus, Dares of Eternity also reward Pinnacle and Powerful gear:

This will definitely help you level up at the start of the season!

    It would be really, really nice and a massive time saver to have the weapon ranks included in these tables.
