Destiny 2 Arc Weapons: The Complete Tier list

Weapons

[toc] Sometimes, even the best weapons in the game won’t be good enough if their element doesn’t match your enemies’. This is especially true for Master and Grandmaster content. For that reason, knowing which weapons, per element, are best in class is extremely important in Destiny 2.

In this guide, we will cover the best Arc weapon in Destiny 2, explain what makes them special, and provide you with a comprehensive list including every Arc weapon in the game.

What are Arc weapons in Destiny 2?

Arc weapons are part of the Energy weapons family. They sit in the Energy slot on your character and do elemental damage.

Energy weapons can do either Solar, Arc, or Void damage, and are perfectly suited to deal with shielded enemies. Kinetic weapons may be able to deal more damage to unshielded enemies, but Special weapons can simply tear through enemy shields, as long as you are using a matching element.

Primary and Special ammo

Just as all Kinetic and Energy weapons, Arc weapons include Primary and Special ammo weapons:

On the other hand, Heavy weapons also deal elemental damage, just like Energy weapons. However, they require the more elusive Heavy ammo.

Best Arc weapons in Destiny 2: Tier list

The list below includes the top-tier Arc weapons currently in the game, for both PVE and PVP. By only including S and A Tier weapons, you can rest assured these are the most lethal guns out there:

As a reminder, these are the different Tier levels used for our rankings:

  • 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.

Note that this list is the result of the many different Tier lists we’ve done so far.
