Finding the perfect Destiny 2 God Roll

A word of caution: While it is tempting to believe that there will always be one God roll that is better than the rest, any given weapon will always have several “god rolls”. A god roll that is better suited for casual PvE, another roll for endgame PvE, and an entirely different roll for PvP. When talking about God rolls, the context is critical, which is why we recommend you dive into our different guides when evaluating potential god rolls.

A Destiny 2 God roll checker?

While other sites feature god roll checkers that allow you to select the perks you’re looking for and see what weapons can support them, we have a different approach. We focus on the best weapons in Destiny 2 and provide you with individual guides that tell you what rolls you should look for. Ultimately, you’re probably more interested in chasing the best rolls for the best weapons instead of chasing a specific roll on a mediocre weapon!

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.

    Thank you for the placing all this info on one webpage. I’ve been looking for this info on yt and google, and it’s time consuming.

    Will there be an update for the rest of the Opulent, Haunted, and Solstice weapons?
