Destiny 2 Trials of Osiris Loot: Rewards and Weekly Rotation

by | Oct 15, 2021 | Weapons

Trials of Osiris, Destiny 2’s infamous endgame PVP activity, is back and it’s stronger than ever. And this is a big deal because Trials has been in desperate need of an overhaul for a long time. Things got so bad, the activity itself became a meme.

But Trials always got one thing right: The weapons. Trials’ weapons have always been considered some of the best weapons in the entire game. And now that Trials is actually fun to play and rewarding, it is the perfect time to farm some of its best loot.

In this guide, we’ll cover the entirety of Trials’ loot, including weapons and armor, this week’s rotation, and more.


Destiny 2 Trials rewards this week

Every week, Trials will have one new Adept weapon up for grabs. These are weekly rewards we’ve had so far this season, including this week’s Adept weapon:

On top of offering an Adept weapon each week, Trials also offers the following rank rewards:

Rank Reward
4 Upgrade Module (x2)
7 Enhancement Prism (x3)
10 Eye of Sol (Sniper Rifle)
13 Upgrade Module (x2)
16 Igneous Hammer (Hand Cannon)

But perhaps more importantly, you will also receive Trials of Osiris engrams every time you rank up. And if you decide not to focus them, and simply decrypt them, you will receive a Trials item you don’t already have in your collection.


Destiny 2 Trials Loot

The two tables below cover everything Trials of Osiris has to offer in terms of loot. Let’s start with the weapons.

Trials Weapons

This table covers every single Trials of Osiris weapon that has not been sunsetted and remains, therefore, viable for endgame content.

Notice Trials of Osiris weapons are on a seasonal rotation, meaning some of them are not available this season (the option “Obtainable now” will help filter those out):

PVP God Roll: Rapid Hit (also good: Moving Target) + Desperado (also good: Headseeker)

► The best Legendary Pulse Rifle in the entire game, The Messenger is a returning weapon from Destiny 1 that comes with a top-tier perk previously reserved only for Pinnacle weapons: Desperado.

PVP God Roll: Rapid Hit (also good: Quickdraw) + Rampage (also good: Snapshot Sights)

► Not as dominant as it once was due to the several nerfs to 120 RPM hand cannons, Igneous Hammer is still the best one out there. Plus, 120 RPM hand cannons remain extremely strong in competitive PVP.

PVP God Roll: Firmly Planted (also good: No Distractions) + Snapshot Sights (also good: Opening Shot)

► Eye of Sol is an extremely solid 90 RPM sniper akin to the now retired, Beloved. Featuring a reasonable 45 zoom stat and good aim assistance, Eye of Sol can also roll with great perk options.

PVP God Roll: Tunnel Vision (also good: Killing Wind) + Kill Clip

► One of the latest (hot) new weapons to come out of Trials of Osiris, Shayura's Wrath is perhaps the best PVP SMG we have seen in a while. As a 600 RPM weapon, Shayura's Wrath offers a competitive TTK, but more importantly, it has an insane range for an SMG.

► Unfortunately, this Trials of Osiris weapon isn't available right now. But when as soon Bungie brings The Scholar back, you'll definitely want one as it remains a great PVE Scout Rifle.

► Sola’s Scar is the best Legendary Caster frame sword for two reasons. As a Solar weapon, it can create Warmind Cells. Also, it can roll with the top-tier perk Chain Reaction.

► In spite of the several nerfs Aggressive shotguns received, they remain competitive. And Astral Horizon being one of the best Aggressive shotguns out there, it's still a weapon you will want to farm as soon it becomes available again.

► The Summoner has excellent base stats, great perks, and a beautiful aesthetic. It occupies the best AR archetype and has access to Rangefinder for a substantial range increase, and Dynamic Sway Reduction to dramatically improve consistency.x

PVE God Roll: Triple Tap (also good: Clown Cartridge) + Firing Line (also good: Vorpal Weapon)

► With best-in-class base stats, superior to my current Legendary favorite, Threaded Needle, Reed's Regret also offers an excellent PVE perk combination that no other Linear Fusion can offer: Triple Tap with Firing Line.

PVE God Roll: Impulse Amplifier + Lasting Impression

► Capable of rolling with Impulse Amplifier and Lasting Impression, Tomorrow's Answer is technically a good rocket launcher too for DPS. Too bad other, easier to farm options, exist.

No

Slot: Arc Energy | Ammo: Destiny 2 special ammo Special | Archetype: Aggressive

PVE God Roll: Quickdraw + Kickstart (also good: High-Impact Reserves)

► Exile's Curse is technically a good Fusion rifle for PVP. It's just hard to rank it any higher than this because several other Fusions surpass it, including other High-Impact frames but also Fusions belonging to even stronger archetypes.

These are the different Tier levels used for this ranking:

  • 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.

The list starts with the S Tier and moves down from there. It also covers both PVE and PVP, with the “Excels in” column clearly identifying where each weapon shines:s

Trials Armor

The following table covers this year’s Trials of Osiris armor: The Pyrrhic Ascent sets.

Pyrrhic Ascent Gauntlets Destiny 2Pyrrhic Ascent Gauntlets | ArmsPyrrhic Ascent Helm Destiny 2Pyrrhic Ascent Greaves | Legs

Adept Trials weapons

Trials of Osiris Adept weapons, reserved for Flawless runs, offer better stats (via an improved Masterwork) and can accept Adept mods, which are superior to normal mods.

Needless to say, Adept versions of these weapons are superior and a major flex.

The Last Word

Now that Trials of Osiris is finally enjoyable for the average player, now is the time to start farming your favorite weapons. Which one is your favorite Trials weapon? I have to mention my Messenger with Headseeker that I love dearly… I know Desperado is technically better but Headseeker is too good when dueling…
