PvP God Roll: Keep Away + Headseeker (also good: Moving Target)

► From the returning Crota's End raid, Oversoul Edict is one of the best legendary pulses, bar none. Its perk pool has something for everyone and is a solid pick for all manners of content. It is also craftable, so a god roll is only five red borders away.

PvE God Roll: Envious Assassin (also good: Compulsive Reloader) + Reservoir Burst (also good: Controlled Burst)

► A fusion to match Loaded Question, The Eremite quickly became a favorite thanks to it being craftable, and with some solid perks to boot. Like most high-impact fusions, the only real issue you'll have with it is the slower charge time.

► While most of its use cases are relatively niche (using Lucky Pants in PvE and potentially two-bursting in PvP), Warden's Law is an interesting and unique option that's gained a fair bit of popularity. It may not compete with top picks like Rose or Exalted Truth, but Warden's Law is still a fun weapon that you can't go wrong with.

► Word of Crota is in the running for the best 180 RPM hand cannon in the game, competing with other top-tier options such as Posterity. While it continues to be difficult to recommend 180 RPM options over other archetypes, Word of Crota excels in its own field and could become a top option with future sandbox changes.

► While Nox lacks the highly sought-after Reservoir Burst, it is the only Kinetic slot fusion rifle that could be considered a backup DPS weapon. Controlled Burst only deals 5% less damage than Reservoir and also decreases the charge time, letting it eke out that extra damage that could make or break a DPS phase.

► Necrochasm is an add-clearing monster that can cause a chain reaction of constant explosions. What holds Necrochasm back, though, is its lack of synergy with any subclass, making it quite hard to use in a build.

► Tessellation is a unique weapon that focuses on using your Grenade ability to grant an empowered explosive shot that deals considerable damage. However, many will argue that it isn't worth sacrificing your grenade for.

► Kept Confidence has gained a fair bit of popularity in the PvP community because of its ability to roll with top-tier perks like Killing Wind and Eye of the Storm. However, a lack of PvE perks and an overall abundance of new and powerful hand cannons make this one only average for PvE.

► Ex Diris is incredibly unique and has a fun interaction with the Mothkeeper's Wraps, but that's about it. The weapon falls flat in any challenging content as it doesn't do enough damage to warrant using your Exotic weapon slot or Special ammo.

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.

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 (and now Diablo 4) 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.

    I feel like Royal Entry should be S-tier, considering all rockets deal the same amount of damage either way, and precision frames have inherent tracking. That, and Clown Cartridge can cause some insanely high burst damage.

      Fully agreed/ I have changed the tier rankings to reflect that and put Royal Entry in front of Code Duello for that reason. Thanks, cheers!

    Is there a reason the PVE and PVP columns are swapped in the two weapon tables (“Destiny 2 Season of the Lost Weapons God rolls” & “Season of the Splicer Weapons God Rolls”)? It makes it slightly confusing to read.
