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 weapons farm: How to get them

Farming Dares of Eternity loot is much harder these days. Before the release of The Witch Queen, Strange Coins could be earned from completing nearly any activity in the game. These days, farming Dares of Eternity loot requires playing a lot of Dares of Eternity.

There are no shortcuts here. Reddit Sasquath describes the situation well:

Now that Strange Coins no longer drop from bounties or some activities, you HAVE to do Dares for Strange Coins now. Considering the Dares bounties & Horse purchases require Strange Coins, and the price tag that remains…

Hopefully, Bungie will address requirements now that Strange Coins are so much harder to acquire than during their 30th Anniversary event.
