Destiny 2 Deep Stone Crypt Loot Table: Weapons & Armor

by | Jul 6, 2022 | Weapons

Raids are supposed to be the pinnacle activity of any self-respecting MMO. They’re supposed to be hard and require well-coordinated teams, but they’re also supposed to award the best loot out there.

And I’m happy to confirm the Deep Stone Crypt raid checks all the boxes.

In this post, we cover all the loot locked behind every encounter of the Deep Stone Crypt Raid, including some of the best weapons in Destiny 2.

On top of rewarding loot when completing encounters, the raid also has 2 hidden chests and a new cache system called the Cache of the Crypt which uses Spoils of Conquest.

Deep Stone Crypt hidden chests

There are two hidden chests in the Deep Stone Crypt, and each has the chance to reward you with:

  • Mods: Enhanced Operator Augment, Enhanced Scanner Augment, Enhanced Suppressor Augment, Herd Thinner
  • Any Weapon or Armor piece already acquired from prior successful encounters.

This great video guide from Jarv shows you how to find them:

How to farm the Deep Stone Crypt

Up until now, farming raids was impossible. Raids could only be completed once per character per week. That meant you only had a maximum of three shots per week and per encounter to find that elusive god roll you were desperately looking for.

This changed with the release of the Deep Stone Crypt, which uses Spoils of Conquest.

Once you have defeated the final boss, you’ll see a thing appear called Cache of the Crypt right next to the usual chest that spawns once an encounter is over.

This Cache of the Crypt is a great addition to the game as it lets you use Spoils of Conquest (the new raid currency) to purchase specific weapons and armor.

Purchasing a weapon or armor you have already found costs only 20 Spoils of Conquest, which can be earned from completing a full Raid, any Raid, including Garden of Salvation and Last Wish. This gives you more opportunities to find good rolls on the specific weapons you’re interested in.

On top of that, the Cache also offers Crypt Caches for a chance to get something you haven’t found before. I haven’t purchased one yet, but I would think twice before spending 60 Spoils of Conquest on one, especially when purchasing a weapon or an armor piece costs only 20 Spoils of War…

Bequest

Bequest suffers from being an Adaptive Frame, and top of that, it can’t roll with the typical top-tier sword perks including Whirlwind Blade or even Vorpal Weapon. But to make matters worse, as a Deep Stone Crypt weapon, it is more difficult to obtain than most other swords in the game.

Bequest PVE God Roll: 

  • Tresh: Killing combatants with this weapon generates a small amount of Super energy (also good: Relentless Strikes).
  • Surrounded: This weapon gains bonus damage when three or more enemies are in close proximity.

Trustee

Trustee has a lot of good perks to choose from. It feels good to shoot. It looks good. It sounds good. The only problem was that it remained a Scout rifle.

But Scouts have received several buffs lately. In fact, they are nowadays considered good for endgame PVE. And as a top-tier scout, Trustee can finally shine.

Trustee PVE God Roll: 

  • Reconstruction (also good: Surplus)
  • High-impact Reverses (also good: Redirection)

Posterity

With an extremely strong perk pool and amazing stats, Posterity is easily the best 180RPM Hand Cannon in the game. Its only problem at the moment is that it’s a Precision Hand Cannon, which are quite weak throughout the game. While it isn’t the best choice now, it might be worth picking up a roll that you like for when 180s get buffed.

Posterity PVE God Roll: 

  • Reconstruction: This weapon slowly reloads itself over time, up to double capacity (also good: Rapid Hit).
  • Rampage: Kills with this weapon temporarily grant increased damage (also good: One for All: Hitting three separate targets increases damage for a moderate duration).

Commemoration

Machine guns are popular in PVP because they offer an excellent ammo economy. When used right, one ammo brick can result in 4-5 kills. And Commemoration just so happens to be one of the top machine guns for PVP. It may not have as high base stats as Hammerhead, but it more than makes up for it with great perks. Commemoration has a lot of potential for PVE too. With the right perks, it can outclass most other legendary machine guns for ad clear.

Commemoration PVP God Roll: 

  • Dynamic Sway Reduction: Improves accuracy and stability while continuously holding down the trigger.
  • Under Pressure: Improved stability and accuracy as the magazine gets lower (also good: Rampage).

Commemoration PVE God Roll: 

  • Reconstruction: This weapon slowly reloads itself over time, up to double capacity.
  • Rampage: Kills with this weapon temporarily grant increased damage.

Succession

Succession is another hidden gem from the Deep Stone Crypt raid. While it can certainly hold its own in PVP (thanks to clean sights and great perk combinations), in PVE, it’s top tier. Perhaps the best there is.

With the Reconstruction perk and something like Vorpal Weapon or Recombination, this can easily be the best DPS sniper in the entire game.

Succession PVE God Roll: 

  • Reconstruction: This weapon slowly reloads itself over time, up to double capacity.
  • Vorpal Weapon: Increased damage against bosses, vehicles, and Guardians with their Super active (also good: Recombination).

Eyes of Tomorrow Destiny 2 featured rocket launcher

Eyes of Tomorrow

Eyes of Tomorrow was disappointing at launch because of its low damage output against bosses. A recent buff has improved the situation, but more importantly, it remains an excellent weapon for ad clear and a monster in Gambit and in 6v6 PvP modes.

Exotic Perks:

  • Eyes on All: This weapon is capable of tracking and firing at multiple targets simultaneously.
  • Adaptive Ordnance: Killing four or more combatants in a single volley increases the damage of the next volley.

Heritage

Vanguard logo Destiny 2 Excels in PVE

In PvE, Heritage is simply a cut above the rest. One of my favorite weapons, the Heritage can come with Reconstruction and Recombination, both of which exclusively appear on weapons from the Deep Stone Crypt raid.

Reconstruction reloads your magazine over time up to double its regular size. Simply put, your Heritage can get a crazy number of shots in the magazine, allowing you to unload into a boss. Recombination, which increases the damage of your first shot based on the number of kills you get when the weapon is holstered, is the perk at play. This perk allows Heritage to deal Heavy Weapon level damage for that first shot, allowing you to quickly take down a beefy target like a miniboss or a champion.

Overall, the Heritage is an option that should always be ready to go in your Kinetic slot for practically all types of content.

PVE God roll:

  • Perk 1: Reconstruction
  • Perk 2: Recombination (also good: Auto-Loading Holster)

The Last Word

It has to be said that Bungie did a great job with the Deep Stone Crypt and its loot. Every single one of these weapons is great and some of them are without a doubt best-in-class.

If you were waiting for another reason to give the new raid a shot, these weapons should do it. What are the god rolls you’re chasing? I’m definitely looking for any of these (except the scout) with Reconfiguration!
