Destiny 2 Arc Weapons: The Complete List

Sometimes, even the best weapons in Destiny 2 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 cover the best Arc weapon in Destiny 2 and provide you with a comprehensive list, including every Arc weapon in the game.

Checkmark icon V3Updated as of Season of Defiance (S20).

What are Arc weapons in Destiny 2?

Arc weapons can sit on either the Energy or Heavy slot on your character. As their name implies, they can deal Arc elemental damage, which makes them perfect for activities filled with Arc enemy shields. Arc weapons can come in all flavors, including Primary, Special, and Heavy ammo weapons.

Best Arc weapons in Destiny 2: Tier list

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.

Arc Weapons: The complete list

In case you’re looking for something much more specific (i.e., an Arc adaptive hand cannon) that you couldn’t find above, this list includes every Arc weapon still viable in Destiny 2:

I've been covering gaming since 2012, and some of my work has been featured by large brands, including MSN.com, Forbes, Rock Paper Shotgun, and more. I've been obsessed with Destiny 2 (and now Diablo 4) for years now, and I hope to provide new and returning players with the guides and resources I wish I had when I first started.
