Destiny 2 Wellspring weapons this Week: Rotation & Tier list

by | Sep 17, 2022 | Weapons

On top of including an excellent campaign, The Witch Queen expansion also features a new 6-man activity called Wellspring.

And while the activity itself offers good enemy density, daily rotating bosses, and more, most Guardians run it to farm one of the four Wellspring-specific weapons. We’ll see if any of these ever reach the top of the meta, but as all of them are craftable, they remain highly appealing. In this guide, we cover all Wellspring weapons and their daily rotation.

Wellspring rotation this Season

There are currently 4 different Wellspring weapons in rotation. Each day, only one weapon can be farmed at a time. This means you’ll have to wait for specific days to fam the Wellspring activity if you’re chasing a specific weapon:

Best Wellspring weapons: Tier list ranking

This table ranks the 4 Wellspring weapons available today. It starts with the top Tier weapons and moves down from there. It also covers both PvE and PvP, with the “Excels in” column clearly identifying where each weapon shines:

PvP God Roll: Under Pressure + Snapshot Sights

► Now that Snipers with low zoom levels got a buff, Snipers such as Father's Sins are back on the table. Able to roll with the indispensable Snapshot Sights, Father's Sin is the most accessible and competent sniper for PVP right now.

► Able to roll with all the best PVE perks possible, Fel Taradiddle is potentially the best Lightweight bow in the entire game. Just try it with Archer's Tempo and Successful Warm-Up and you won't believe its speed.

PvE God Roll: Clown Cartridge + One For All

► Tarnation suffers from the poor Rapid-Fire archetype and a poor perk pool. However, the saving grace of Tarnation is its ability to be crafted, completely nullifying the RNG aspect. It can also come with Enhanced Perks, which place it above its Rapid-Fire competition.
Season 16

PvE God Roll: Clown Cartridge + One For All

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.

How to farm Wellspring weapons

Farming Wellspring weapons is as straightforward as it gets: they only drop from The Wellspring activity in the Throne World destination.

Gaining access to the Wellspring activity

To get access to the 6-man Wellspring activity, you’ll need to own The Witch Queen expansion and have completed the campaign. Once you’ve completed the campaign, you’ll need to visit Fynch in the Throne World destination in order to permanently unlock the Wellspring activity.

Wellspring weapons drop rates

The first few weeks of the Witch Queen expansion were difficult for players looking to farm Wellspring weapons. Wellspring weapons with Deepsight resonance were particularly hard to get.

Probably a bug was preventing these weapons from dropping, but luckily Bungie recognize the issue and has already released a patch to improve the situation:

Are you still farming Wellspring weapons? Or perhaps you are already leveling up your crafted version of your favorite weapon of the lot?
