When I returned to Destiny 2 after an 18-month break, I was completely lost. Not only is Destiny 2 notoriously bad at explaining things or giving a vague sense of priority, but it’s also a game that naturally evolves with time. Especially because of its ever-changing weapons, meta, and sandbox.

It was frustrating to search online, find outdated guides, and end up grinding for weapons that were no longer good (I’m looking at you Breakneck).

In this guide, you’ll find everything important there is to know about the best weapons in Destiny 2 today.

What are the best weapons in Destiny 2? How to find them? What about the best Exotics?

The Best Season 14 & 15 weapons

Like any other looter shooter out there, Destiny 2 is all about getting the latest and greatest gear. Exotics and best-in-class legendaries are always important, but the new weapons will always get the spotlight.

And when the Seasonal weapons happen to be as good as Season of the Splicer and Season of the Lost, then they instantly become the most sought-after weapons in the entire game.

This guide covers every weapon released in Season 14 and 15, including the best PVE and PVP rolls selected with the help of some of the best Destiny 2 content creators:

Exotics are a key part of a Guardian’s loadout. As you’re allowed to only equip one Exotic weapon at a time, it’s often a difficult choice that can even lead to intense debates with your Fireteam.

All 82 weapons ranked for PVE and PVP

[/et_pb_slide][/et_pb_slider][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.11.2″ global_colors_info=”{}” theme_builder_area=”post_content”]

The guide includes:

  1. A ranking including all 81 Exotics currently in the game
  2. Requirements to obtain them
  3. Guides on how to get them
  4. A focus on all the newest Exotics

Knowing which Exotics are best and understanding which ones are the easiest to obtain can make a big difference, especially if you’re just starting out. With that knowledge, you can better target what Exotics to chase first and build strong loadouts sooner rather than later.

If you’re ready to start chasing the best Exotic weapons and Catalysts, these guides will show you where to find them:

Be aware that many Exotic quests were removed from the game and put into the Destiny Content Vault (DCV).

Most of those weapons are now available for purchase at the Monument to Lost Lights in the Tower.

Some of them literally break the rules of what a weapon should be able to do in Destiny 2.

Having said that, you should always be clear on what you’re looking for when talking about weapons in Destiny 2. Are you looking for: A weapon for PVE or a weapon for PVP?

PVP vs PVE

PVP and PVE are entirely different beasts that require entirely different tactics, strategies, and weapons. A good gun for PVE will most likely be very different than a good gun for PVP. For that reason, we will always talk about PVP and PVE separately.

Weapon sunsetting: Several weapons in Destiny 2 were recently retired. They are still in the game but are no longer viable for end-game content. Read everything there is to know about weapon sunsetting here.


The Best Destiny 2 PVE Weapons

You’ll see us talk a lot about DPS, damage per second, throughout this section.

About DPS: DPS is important for PVE, because the higher the DPS, the more damage you can deal to a Boss or Major.

What to look for in PVE

A good PVE weapon should be able to deal a good amount of DPS while remaining consistent and easy to use. Some weapons can deal great DPS, but require excellent aim and leave little room for mistakes.

All of our top PVE weapons follow those criteria. They do good DPS, are consistent, and easy to use. These are the weapons you’ll want to bring to the most challenging PVE content in Destiny 2:[/et_pb_text][et_pb_slider show_arrows=”off” show_pagination=”off” module_class=”buttons” _builder_version=”4.11.2″ _module_preset=”default” header_level=”h6″ header_font=”|800|||||||” header_font_size=”32px” background_enable_color=”off” background_color_gradient_direction=”360deg” background_enable_image=”off” custom_button=”on” button_use_icon=”off” transform_translate_linked=”off” max_width=”100%” module_alignment=”center” custom_padding=”60px||60px||false|false” custom_css_slide_title=”margin-left: -45px;||margin-right: -45px;” box_shadow_style=”preset1″ box_shadow_blur=”0px” locked=”off” global_colors_info=”{}” transform_styles__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_scale__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_translate__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_rotate__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_skew__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_origin__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_translate__hover=”0px|-3px” background__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” background_enable_color__hover=”off” box_shadow_blur__hover_enabled=”on|hover” box_shadow_blur__hover=”18px” button_bg_color__hover=”#6369ce” button_bg_color__hover_enabled=”on|hover” button_border_color__hover=”#6369ce” button_border_color__hover_enabled=”on|hover” theme_builder_area=”post_content”][et_pb_slide heading=”Destiny 2 Best PVE Weapons” button_text=”Read More” button_link=”https://www.blueberries.gg/weapons/best-pve-weapons/” url_new_window=”on” use_bg_overlay=”off” _builder_version=”4.11.2″ _module_preset=”default” header_level=”h3″ header_font_size=”25px” body_font=”|600|||||||” body_font_size=”19px” background_color=”rgba(0,0,0,0.25)” background_enable_color=”on” background_color_gradient_direction=”270deg” background_image=”https://www.blueberries.gg/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Best-DPS-weapons-Destiny-2-Featured-Parallax.jpg” background_enable_image=”on” background_blend=”overlay” filter_brightness=”102%” link_option_url=”https://www.blueberries.gg/weapons/best-pve-weapons/” link_option_url_new_window=”on” child_filter_brightness_last_edited=”off|desktop” custom_css_slide_title=”||” locked=”off” global_colors_info=”{}” child_filter_brightness__hover_enabled=”off|hover” background__hover_enabled=”on|desktop” background_blend__hover=”darken” background_color_gradient_start__hover=”rgba(119,129,253,0.6)” background_color_gradient_end__hover=”rgba(0,0,0,0.65)” null__hover=”rgba(119,129,253,0.6)” background_color_gradient_start_position__hover=”0%” background_color_gradient_end_position__hover=”70%” background_color__hover=”rgba(0,0,0,0.4)” background_enable_color__hover=”on” use_background_color_gradient__hover=”off” sticky_transition=”on” theme_builder_area=”post_content”]

The Best Destiny 2 PVP Weapons

You’ll see us talk a lot about TTK, time-to-kill, throughout this section.

About TTK: TTK is particularly important in PVP, because the lowest the TTK, the faster you can kill your opponent. You can read all about it in our TTK guide below.

What to look for in PVP

Unlike PVE, PVP is not about sheer damage or DPS. In the Crucible, every bullet counts, and for that reason, you should be looking for those weapons that require the least bullets (and time) to kill an opposing Guardian.

But similarly to DPS in PVE, TTK in PVP is not everything. You also want a lethal weapon with a good TTK that is also consistent and easy to use.

It goes without saying that our selection of PVP weapons follows that criteria too. They are consistent, easy to use, and have some the lowest TTK out there:[/et_pb_text][et_pb_slider show_arrows=”off” show_pagination=”off” module_class=”buttons” _builder_version=”4.11.2″ _module_preset=”default” header_level=”h6″ header_font=”|800|||||||” header_font_size=”32px” background_enable_color=”off” background_color_gradient_direction=”360deg” background_enable_image=”off” custom_button=”on” button_use_icon=”off” transform_translate_linked=”off” max_width=”100%” module_alignment=”center” custom_padding=”60px||60px||false|false” custom_css_slide_title=”margin-left: -45px;||margin-right: -45px;” box_shadow_style=”preset1″ box_shadow_blur=”0px” locked=”off” global_colors_info=”{}” transform_styles__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_scale__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_translate__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_rotate__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_skew__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_origin__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” transform_translate__hover=”0px|-3px” background__hover_enabled=”off|desktop” background_enable_color__hover=”off” box_shadow_blur__hover_enabled=”on|hover” box_shadow_blur__hover=”18px” button_bg_color__hover=”#6369ce” button_bg_color__hover_enabled=”on|hover” button_border_color__hover=”#6369ce” button_border_color__hover_enabled=”on|hover” theme_builder_area=”post_content”][et_pb_slide heading=”Destiny 2 Best PVP Weapons” button_text=”Read More” button_link=”https://www.blueberries.gg/weapons/destiny-2-best-pvp-weapons/” url_new_window=”on” use_bg_overlay=”off” _builder_version=”4.11.2″ _module_preset=”default” header_level=”h3″ header_font_size=”25px” body_font=”|600|||||||” body_font_size=”19px” background_color=”rgba(0,0,0,0.25)” background_enable_color=”on” background_color_gradient_direction=”270deg” background_image=”https://www.blueberries.gg/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Best-PVP-Weapons-Destiny-2-Featured-Parallax.jpg” background_enable_image=”on” background_blend=”overlay” filter_brightness=”102%” link_option_url=”https://www.blueberries.gg/weapons/destiny-2-best-pvp-weapons/” link_option_url_new_window=”on” child_filter_brightness_last_edited=”off|desktop” custom_css_slide_title=”||” locked=”off” global_colors_info=”{}” child_filter_brightness__hover_enabled=”off|hover” background__hover_enabled=”on|desktop” background_blend__hover=”darken” background_color_gradient_start__hover=”rgba(119,129,253,0.6)” background_color_gradient_end__hover=”rgba(0,0,0,0.65)” null__hover=”rgba(119,129,253,0.6)” background_color_gradient_start_position__hover=”0%” background_color_gradient_end_position__hover=”70%” background_color__hover=”rgba(0,0,0,0.4)” background_enable_color__hover=”on” use_background_color_gradient__hover=”off” sticky_transition=”on” theme_builder_area=”post_content”]

Current Destiny 2 Meta

While not as covered as the “Top weapons” in Destiny 2, the current Meta is equally important.

The Meta defines what weapons and loadouts are the most efficient and lethal at any given time. For that reason, understanding the current Meta will help you better understand Destiny 2 weapons in general and potentially get ahead of the competition.

This guide covers the current Meta and state of the Sandbox in detail: What the best weapon types are and why, and what have been the latest changes:

The best places to find great weapons

Some of the best weapons are extremely hard to acquire. And that’s a good thing, as Destiny 2 is a looter-shooter and having to work hard for the best gear is part of the fun.

But in case you feel lost and don’t even know where to begin, there are a few excellent sources where you can consistently farm Top Tier weapons.

The following guides focus on specific sources of great guns. Each guide ranks every single weapon from its relevant activity, includes the top exotics found there, provides the best rolls for Legendaries, and gives you tips to efficiently farm them:

Your turn

These resources should help you figure out what the best weapons in Destiny 2 are. These are the weapons that are worth chasing, either because they’re simply the best in class or because they’re very good while being easy to farm at the same time.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]

    1. Just updated last night. I usually go in there and update it twice a month. It’s rarely huge updates, but more adding new resources and updating some highlighted weapons based on the shifting meta.
      After all, everything can change from season to season so I better go back to previous “best of” guides!

  1. Need to add more best weapons by type…not just bows. I like to experiment around and see what other Guardians are using.

  2. I’ve been keeping Leviathan’s Breath in my arsenal for PVE. That bow can melt elites and bosses. Altough the 10 max arrows hurts the viability of the weapon
