Destiny 2 Season 16 Weapons God rolls

by | Jun 12, 2022 | Weapons

One of the biggest questions we get after a new Season is: What are the best weapons in the game now?

While we’ve answered that question before, this time we focus on every new weapon released with Bungie’s Season of the Haunted (S17).

In this guide, we cover every Legendary weapon (with their respective PVP and PVE god rolls) released this season, including free-to-play, returning weapons, Season Pass exclusives, and we tell you which ones deserve your attention the most.

A big thank you to all the amazing content creators that helped us put together this resource. Needless to say, their perk recommendations are all excellent and I’m grateful they are part of this.

Destiny 2 Season 16 Weapons: PVE and PVP God rolls

The list starts with the  S Tier and moves down from there:

Reviews ongoing… As you can see, we’re still working on our god roll selection for Season 17 but stay tuned for the update!

PvE God Roll: Auto-Loading Holster (also good: Compulsive Reloader) + Chill Clip

► Riptide's large perk pool makes it annoying to grind, but it's undoubtedly worth it. You can slow and freeze combatants instantly with incredibly synergistic combinations such as Auto-Loading Holster and Chill Clip. Additionally, because of Riptide's quick charge time and deep ammo reserves, you can stun-lock enemies (including Champions!) with its back-to-back freezing potential.

► Our favorite sidearm in the game, Trespasser is a monster with its exotic perk active. While it won't be the best choice in Master or Grandmaster content, it's exceptionally powerful and fun everywhere else.

PvE God Roll: Unrelenting (also good: Moving Target) + Incandescent

► Able to roll with the excellent perk Incandescent, CALUS Mini-Tool immediately cemented itself as a top-tier pick with the release of Solar 3.0. Plus, it's one of the few craftable SMGs currently in the game, meaning it's one of the easiest to get as well.

► The first linear fusion rifle to not be a Precision Frame, Stormchaser and its three-round burst is as unique as they are fun. And with S-Tier perk combinations like Rapid Hit + Firing Line, this already-strong linear fusion rifle easily competes with top picks like Reed's Regret.

That day has come, and Austringer is once again a great pick for anything in the game. With amazing stats, even better perks, and the ability to be crafted, it's hard to not see why people love this weapon.

► One of the strongest sidearms in the game, Drang (Baroque), is back and has excellent rolls for every part of the game. Incandescent alone makes it great for PvE (although not as good as CALUS Mini-Tool), and its high zoom stat and well-rounded first column make it a good PvP pick too.

► Lingering Dread is the first of its kind. It's the first Special Stasis Grenade Launcher, and it comes with one of the newer Stasis perks, Chill Clip. However, despite the potential nuance that Chill Clip may bring, Lingering Dread doesn't shake up the meta. It is merely another 'pretty good' option.

► For those not wanting to grind out The Messenger, New Purpose is the next best thing. Desperado was recently nerfed and is now significantly less potent, but it's still crazy fun in both PvE and PvP. Plus, New Purpose's Stasis element and Headstone can also play an integral part in a PvE Stasis build.

► While Heartshadow does require you to change your playstyle a bit due to its unique perks and heavy attack, it can be extremely useful in the right hands. Not only are Invisibility and Weaken irreplaceable buffs for PVE, but they also allow this sword to have great synergy with a Void subclass. Plus, Heartshadow is extremely fun to use!

► The only SMG in the game that can roll Demolitionist in its first column, Unforgiven is one of the many unique weapons to come from the Duality dungeon. Plus, its second column is full of tons of S-Tier damage and utility perks, making Unforgiven an easy choice for any Void 3.0 build.

Exotic Perk: "Fires a powerful short-range burst of Solar damage. Hold to swap to a longer, more powerful burst."

► Lord of Wolves dominated the meta for a good part of early 2022. But Season 17's changes to the Special ammo economy and a specific nerf to the weapon, hurt the Lord of Wolves. However, despite the nerfs, it remains an extremely easy shotgun to use with very high levels of lethality.

► Nezarec's Whisper is the first glaive to roll with some S-Tier PVE perks (such as Demolitionist), but that isn't saying much since it's only the third Legendary glaive to be released. Because of those unique perks, it can be used in ways the other two glaives can't, putting it above some of the rest.

► Staccato-46 contains some exceptional new perks from Season of the Haunted, like Incandescent. However, its rolls aren't very useful in high-end PvE content (where scout rifles are primarily used). Unless you're a huge scout rifle fan, there isn't a reason to run this weapon over something like Strident Whistle or CALUS Mini-Tool.

► Chain of Command is a "jack of all trades, master of none" weapon. From complimenting a grenade-centric build with Adrenaline Junkie + Demolitionist to focusing on elemental shields with Osmosis or Adaptive Munitions, this machine gun can fit any role you need. That said, if you have a good Corrective Measure or THE SWARM, there's no reason to use this instead.

► A community favorite back in Year 1, D.F.A. has been brought back in, sadly, a pretty average state. This weapon doesn't have the stats or perks to carry it in PVP, and while it can roll Outlaw / Rampage, there isn't too much here for high-level PVE content either.

► Even though Tears of Contrition is easily outclassed in PvE, it can excel in PvP. A 180 RPM weapon with Explosive Payload is always deadly, but with a 1-second TTK, it can be hard to justify. But if you play into it and are a good shot, it can work. For the vast majority, however, sticking to a Hand Cannon or SMG is best.

► The first sidearm with an Adept variant, many have been waiting for something like it. Sadly, it only partially lived up to expectations. Its base stats are easily best in class and can benefit even more from Adept mods, giving it a great feel at base. However, its perks are fairly niche for PvP, making a lot of players pass on this weapon for now.

► Dead Weight could have all the perks in the world (and it nearly does, having 12 options per slot), but it would still struggle because Rapid-Fire frame shotguns are notoriously weak in both PvE and PvP right now.

PvE God Roll: Fourth Time's the Charm + Focused Fury

► One of the coolest sounding and nicest feeling weapons in the game, Firefright sadly just isn't all that good. Precision Frame auto rifles don't have a place in the game right now, and Firefright's mediocre perks don't boost it above the rest.
Season 17
Slot: Kinetic symbol Destiny 2 Kinetic | Ammo: Primary ammo Destiny 2 Primary | Archetype: Precision

PvE God Roll: Fourth Time's the Charm + Focused Fury

These are the different Tier levels used for this Tier list:

  • S Tier – Best: Highest ranking weapon types.
  • A Tier – Strong: Very strong weapon types, but not on the same level as S Tier Choices.
  • B Tier – Average: Decent choices that can be lethal in the hands of a skilled player.
  • C Tier – Weak: The middle of the pack, somewhat mediocre.
  • D Tier – Worst: Lagging behind the competition, these don’t have much to offer.

Season of the Risen (S16) God rolls

The list starts with the  S Tier and moves down from there:
