Destiny 2 Pit of Heresy Loot table: Weapons & Armor

by | Mar 19, 2024

Many Guardians ignore the Pit of Heresy because it doesn’t feature exclusive weapons or armor. Indeed, Pit of Heresy offers the same gear that you can find elsewhere on the Moon.

Still, this dungeon has a lot to offer. First, it’s the only place where you can farm the capable Premonition pulse rifle, and more importantly, it drops some of the best high-stat armor in the entire game. This guide covers the entire Pit of Heresy loot table and tells you how to farm its high-stat armor.

Destiny 2 Pit of Heresy weapons and rolls

The main complaint with Pit of Heresy is that most of its weapons can be acquired elsewhere on the Moon destination, except the Premonition pulse rifle and Xenophage:

Pit of Heresy Exotic

The Xenophage Exotic machine gun can be acquired as part of an Exotic quest. However, as said quest culminates within the Pit of Heresy dungeon, Xenophage is technically a dungeon weapon, too.

Xenophage

The Xenophage Solar Exotic machine gun features the following perks:

  • Pyrotoxin Rounds: Fires high-powered explosive ammunition.
  • Rangefinder

Pit of Heresy Dungeon Armor

Unlike every other dungeon in Destiny 2 that offers an exclusive Armor set, the Pit of Heresy drops the standard Moon armor: the Dreambane set.

Dreambane Armor

Pit of Heresy armor, Destiny 2

To be fair, while the Dreambane set is not exclusive to the Pit of Heresy dungeon, the versions that the Pit offers have extremely high stats. Some of the best in the game.

Now that transmog is a thing, many will argue that finding high-stat gear is more important than finding new sets…

Is Pit of Heresy farmable?

Whenever Pit of Heresy is the featured dungeon of the week, it can be farmed for unlimited loot. All you’ll need is a committed Fireteam and a couple of hours ahead of you.

This is how you’ll be able to farm the Pit of Heresy dungeon:

  1. Go through the dungeon on your first character until you reach the encounter you want to farm.
  2. Start the encounter and wipe (i.e., die without beating it).
  3. Ask your Fireteam to wait. Change characters and log into a character that hasn’t run the dungeon that week.
  4. On that second character, join your Fireteam again.
  5. Wipe again. Now your second character has the proper checkpoint.

And that’s it. You’ll then be able to farm that encounter ad nauseam until reset! To continue farming, you’ll need to:

  1. Launch the dungeon using your second character (the one that is holding the checkpoint).
  2. Change characters and rejoin your Fireteam on your first character.
  3. Complete the encounter for loot.
  4. Exit the dungeon, switch characters again, and repeat Step 1.

Before you go…

Are you looking forward to farming more top-tier loot from Destiny 2’s endgame activities? Next week, you’ll be able to farm Shattered Throne Loot (the next featured Dungeon in the rotation).
