Destiny 2 Legendary Weapons: Every Weapon still Viable

by | May 18, 2021

Beyond Light was a great Expansion. Perhaps one of the best Destiny has ever seen.

But it also came with a lot of baggage, most of it due to Bungie’s decision to also remove half of the game and sunset most weapons. Luckily, Bungie did the unexpected and decided to remove sunsetting from the game:

We’ve made the decision that any weapon or armor that can currently be infused to max Power will continue to be able to reach max Power permanently.

Below, we round up all the Legendary weapons that survived sunsetting and remain viable in Destiny 2 today, including the 30+ new weapons released this season.


Destiny 2 Weapon Loot Pool as of Season 14

The table below includes all 175 legendary viable weapons viable today, i.e. the legendary weapons that can reach the maximum Power Level this season:

Changes to the loot pool

When it comes to loot problems, Bungie clearly listened and absolutely knocked it out of the park.

Since the release of Beyond Light, the quantity and quality of new weapons have dramatically increased. On top of receiving the usual Seasonal weapons, this season alone we saw:

  • Playlist weapons (2 per activity or 6 in total)
  • Nightfall weapons (3 in total)
  • Iron Banner weapons (2 reprised and 2 new weapons)
  • Vault of Glass weapons (6 in total)
  • More reprised Year 1 weapons (9 in total)

With Season of the Chosen, Bungie also made several changes to the way existing weapons can be acquired:

  • Reintroduced 4 Moon weapons and 4 Dreaming City weapons with new perk combinations
  • Removed all Season 10 weapons from the World drop pool but gave them instead to the Gunsmith

All of these changes are reflected in the table above and you can count on it being updated as soon as Bungie implements changes to the Destiny 2 weapon loot pool.

The Best Legendary Weapons in Destiny 2

In the grand scheme of things, 175 total viable weapons (excluding Exotics, of course) is not so bad. In fact, the list is big enough to make finding “good weapons” hard for newcomers.

Our Top PVP Weapons and Top PVE Weapons guides cover the best legendary weapons in Destiny 2 in great detail. In the meantime, if you’re looking for a quick list with some of the best legendary weapons that can still be obtained in-game, this will help you get started:

The Last Word

For once, Bungie was quick to identify the problem and do something about it. The lack of loot in general, and weapons in particular, was worrying. Adding a handful of weapons from Seasons 10 and 11 hardly solved the problem.

But Bungie kept pushing forward. Both Season of the Chosen and Season of the Splicer have done great things in terms of adding exciting new weapons and keeping the meta fresh. If Bungie can continue delivering as many exciting weapons with each new season, we shall never have a loot problem in Destiny 2 again.
