Destiny 2 Weapon Rolls: PVE and PVP God Rolls

Weapons

In Destiny 2, a weapon is only as good as its “roll”. You can have a weapon with excellent base stats, but it can only be truly great if it has good perks.

It is the combination of great base stats and excellent perks that define the best weapons in the game. Needless to say, a legendary weapon’s perk combination is extremely important, and is the main reason players continuously grind in Destiny 2: To find their god rolls.

This guide includes god rolls for all the best Legendary weapons in the game, including recommendations from some of our favorite content creators, as well as god rolls from many of our own tier lists and guides.

Checkmark icon V3List updated as of The Witch Queen’s release (S16).

Destiny 2 God rolls from content creators

The following god rolls come from some our favorite content creators. This is a community initiative that happens once per season, and I’m glad to confirm god rolls for Season 16 are now included:

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.

Destiny 2 God rolls database

The following recommended rolls come from the many Tier lists we’ve done so far and they only focus on the third and fourth perks.

Hardcore players will insist that all the perks are equally important. And while that may be the case for the most demanding and competitive players, having decent perks in the first and second slot is more than good enough as long as the other two perks are top tier.

► Machine guns are popular in PVP because they offer an excellent ammo economy. When used right, one ammo brick can result in 4-5 kills. And Commemoration just so happens to be one of the top machine guns for PVP. It may not have as high base stats as Hammerhead, but it more than makes up for it with great perks. Commemoration has a lot of potential for PVE too. With the right perks, it can outclass most other legendary machine guns for ad clear.

On top of that, it also comes with that smooth "feel" you'd want from a hand cannon. Exotic hand cannons tend to grab all the spotlight, but make no mistake, a god roll The Palindrome can be just as good.

► Dead Man's Tale was a real game-changer. Before its release, it was unimaginable to see a scout rifle dominate the Crucible, but here we are. With excellent stats and the ability to 2-tap guardians once its Exotic perk is active, Dead Man's Tale is extremely lethal at long ranges. Plus, it feels incredible to use in hip-fired mode thanks to its catalyst. By the way, with the ability to roll with random perks, there are a couple of nasty rolls out there, including one with Vorpal Weapon for when Supers start to appear.

With an S-Tier Origin Trait and no terrible perks in its pool, there's not much to hate about this pulse rifle.

And on top of having excellent base stats, Heritage can roll with fantastic perks that are unique to the DSC raid, and being a Kinetic weapon, it intrinsically deals 10% more damage than its Energy counterparts.

On top of that, it has best-in-class base stats and excellent perks. And while all of its perks are good, it can also roll with the exclusive Desperado perk. With Desperado, which greatly increases its rate of fire after a precision kill, its TTK is massively reduced, allowing it to duel absolutely anyone and even go for insane killing sprees in 6v6 modes.

As a 600 RPM weapon, Shayura's Wrath offers a competitive TTK, but more importantly, it has an insane range for an SMG.

Slot: Kinetic symbol Destiny 2 Kinetic | Ammo: Destiny 2 special ammo Special | Archetype: Aggressive

PVE God Roll: Reconstruction + Vorpal Weapon

► Succession is another hidden gem from the Deep Stone Crypt raid. While it can certainly hold its own in PVP (thanks to clean sights and great perk combinations), in PVE, it's top tier. Perhaps the best there is.

With the Reconstruction perk and something like Vorpal Weapon or Recombination, this can easily be the best DPS sniper in the entire game.

► Trustee has a lot of good perks to choose from. It feels good to shoot. It looks good. It sounds good. The only problem was that it remained a Scout rifle.

But Scouts have received several buffs lately. In fact, they are nowadays considered good for endgame PVE. And as a top-tier scout, Trustee can finally shine.

► As mentioned before, slug shotguns are in a great place right now for PVE, and Blasphemer benefits from that. However, Blasphemer has very stiff competition in the likes of Heritage or First In, Last Out.

On the PVP side, Blasphemer is certainly no Chaperone, but it's still an excellent choice for slug shotgun users, and with the right perks, it can be the best Chaperone Legendary alternative.

Peacebond was one of the few weapons to offer Headstone and that made it very special. That isn't any longer the case, as many other weapons can roll with Headstone these days.

► Hezen Vengeance, the rocket launcher from the Vault of Glass raid, is an overall great package. It offers good stats and good perks all-around, and that alone makes it a decent reward for a raid.

But thanks to one single perk, Overflow, Hezen Vengeance is a unique weapon. The only rocket launcher that can roll with Overflow, it has the potential of having two rockets in the chamber quite often, which translates into insane burst-DPS.
