Destiny 2 Legendary Weapons

Every Weapon still Viable in Destiny 2

By Ric (aka Prim)updated Updated Jan 14, 2021

Beyond Light has been an excellent Expansion so far. 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 remove half of the base game and sunset most weapons.

It is now clear there’s a loot problem in Destiny 2: The same few weapons always drop. Both Forsaken and Shadowkeep’s paid campaigns reward obsolete gear. Beyond Light introduced too few weapons compared to the hundreds that were sunset. And the list goes on.

Bungie was quick to react. In just 2 weeks, they reintroduced more weapons to the World loot pool and confirmed that longer-term solutions are on the way.

If you simply want to know what this means to you in-game, the table below includes every single viable legendary weapon (e.g. not sunsetted) in Destiny 2 right now. All 117 of them…


Destiny 2 Weapon Loot Pool as of Beyond Ligh

To partially solve the loot problem currently plaguing the game, Bungie added and removed several weapons to the World loot pool. You can see these specific weapons by filtering the table below using the “Obtainable in-game” button below set to “Added” or “Removed”:

With Hotfix 3.0.0.4, Bungie made the following changes to the loot pool:

  • Remove all Legendary weapons that hit their Infusion Cap at the end of this Season.
  • Added all of the Seventh Seraph weapons from Season of the Worthy.
  • Added all of the Season of Arrivals Seasonal and planetary reprisal weapons.
  • Set weight drop chances so that the newer an item is, the more likely it is to drop.
  • Removed True Prophecy from the loot pool (for unknown reasons)

All of these changes are reflected in the above table.

The Best Legendary Weapons in Destiny 2

In the grand scheme of things, 117 total viable weapons (excluding Exotics of course) is not a lot for a looter shooter. That said, it’s still a big list if you’re just starting out and are simply looking for “good weapons”.

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

Adding a handful of weapons from Seasons 10 and 11 will hardly solve the problem. But Bungie is aware of that and mentioned that other changes could be coming:

While we are not yet ready to dive into the long-term strategy yet, we are listening to feedback and watching how the player build landscape evolves over these first few weeks of Beyond Light, and incorporating that feedback as we plan out future Seasons.

Hopefully, their long-term strategy will be put in motion soon. In the meantime, this list should help you understand what are your options and continue building a good arsenal of weapons.
