Destiny 2 Origin Traits Guide: Ranking & Weapons list

by | Aug 25, 2022 | Weapons

[toc] Since the release of The Witch Queen expansion, every new weapon now comes with an Origin Trait, which, in short, behaves like a passive perk. Origin Traits are not as potent as weapon perks, but they require little work to activate and are meant to complement perks, not replace them.

By offering extra benefits compared to older weapons, don’t be surprised if Origin weapons slowly rise to the top of the meta. In this guide, we cover every single Origin Trait in the game and provide you with a complete list of weapons, including traits.

Checkmark icon V3Lists updated as of Season of Plunder’s release (S18).

As you can see, there are 2 different types of sources for Origin Traits:

  • Where does the weapon come from: Iron Banner, Trials of Osiris, Nightfalls, etc.
  • Who manufactured the weapon: Suros, Veist, etc.

For this reason, some weapons can have more than one Origin Trait: One trait coming from its source and another one coming from its manufacturer. But do keep in mind that, in those cases, you’ll have to select which Origin Trait will be active.

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 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.

    This year’s edition of Compass Rose also has the Dream Work trait. If there’s a way to do it, another “reissue” column would be very helpful!
