10 Best Legendary Weapons in Destiny 2 Ranked Worst to Best

I’m sure you’ve seen the new Destiny 2 Heavy Sniper Rifle (HST-09) that can be found in the game’s new Dreaming City raid. While this weapon looks like something out of a sci-fi fantasy novel, it’s actually quite formidable. In this guide, I’ll show you why.

Many of us have moved on from the first Destiny 2, but we have the games we never got to play, and other games we didn’t know about. The series is becoming a popular game in the competitive gaming community, and it has become more popular due to the popularity of the first game. The first game was a big hit, and that has led many people to play the game, with the second installment being kinda popular as well. Many people have different opinions on one of the most common questions: which weapons are the best.

Having a good stock of legendary weapons is extremely important in Destiny 2. It would be a dream come true if we could use our favorite exotics in any location, but that would probably be too nice (to be perfectly honest).

In this guide, we will discuss the best legendary weapons in Destiny 2, as well as some information about each of them. We’ll look at the divinity scrolls for each weapon, discuss some of their uses, and how to acquire them. We hope this helps you in your process!

What makes a legendary weapon good?

Before I go straight to the list, let me explain how you determine the quality of a legendary weapon. Legendary weapons don’t have to be flashy, they just have to be effective. It’s great if they have certain skills they can excel in (like range or DPS), and even better if they can get mods (especially champion mods).

I recommend trying out every legendary hero you come across to see how they perform, even if you don’t plan on using them often. Sometimes a gun is no fun, but it’s even more fun when you have it in your hand.

Let’s go to the list!

Top 10 legendary weapons in Destiny 2

Starting with number 10, we go to the best of the best legendary weapons in Destiny 2.

10 /10

Seventh Seraphim’s Rifle

Received from: Armorer

The gun of the seventh Seraphim has really surprised me this season. In the past I wouldn’t have recommended it, but given the quality of the mods for Warmind Cell, I can’t pass it up. As anti-barrier mods have made automatic rifles particularly good this season, this weapon is ideal for those hoping to use the Warmind cells in weekly night raids. Overall, it’s an excellent weapon, but the extra bonuses gained this season make it good enough for this list.

Carabiner of the Seventh Seraphim God Roll:

  • Corkscrew or chamber compensator
  • Ricochet cartridges or high calibre ammunition
  • All good things come in fours.
  • Anger or the weapon of the dagger

Palindrome is one of my favorites for many reasons. First, I love handguns (even if they are a bit on the low side at the moment). But more than that, having a reliable main weapon from the void has been a blessing this season. Some Nightfall moves require Void damage, and since hand cannons now have an overload mod, this is the best time to become a Palindrome fan. This gun is excellent and feels great, especially if you know how to handle it. The only downside is that you can’t get it now, as it was a Nightfall award from last season, but it will be available again at the end of this season.

Palindromic God Project:

  • Hammerwork or corkscrew wave
  • Ricochet Rounds
  • Outlaw.
  • Rampage

Since learning the power of stun grenades, Truthteller has become one of my favorite weapons. In very late games like Grandmaster Nightfall, blinding grenades are one of your most useful advantages. This, along with other exceptional advantages (especially disruption breaking), sets Truthteller apart from other grenadiers in this regard. The fact that this is an energy weapon that the champion mod can get this season makes it one of the best weapons to use in the late game.

God of Truth Scope:

  • Quick start
  • Stun grenades
  • Self-loading case
  • Operating losses

Fall of the guillotine

Received from: The legendary pomegranate

Falling Guillotine has been a fan favorite since its release, and it’s not hard to see why. Even when Swords was at the peak of its popularity and Lament was in full swing, Guillotine still had an important place in the metagame. And although the sword has lost power in recent times, it remains one of the best legendary heavy weapons Destiny 2 . Falling Guillotine is excellent in the low to mid level, and can be a monster in the right situations, even late in the game. Honestly, I’d recommend wearing a guillotine even if you don’t plan on needing it. You never know when a sword might come in handy, and this sword is one of the most reliable.

God’s guillotine case.

  • Jagged Edge or Hungry Edge
  • Balanced safety
  • Merciless blows
  • Vortex knife

Succession is my pick for most powerful sniper rifle and best legendary special weapon in Destiny 2 right now, all because of some perk : Reconstruction. All the weapons that can have this advantage are excellent, but it is the weapon of succession that makes this advantage the best. Even when encountering exotic snipers, I prefer Succession on my side. It does a lot of damage to bosses and is very useful for night attacks when trying to kill persistent champions. If you really want it, you can even find benefits that make it useful for ad-clear as well. It’s worth doing the fight against Atrax One in the Deep Stone Crypt raid for that reason alone.

Successor role of God

  • Pipe or boom breakage
  • Tactical Magazine
  • Reconstruction
  • Weapons of the dagger

Received from : Seasonal Engrams (Titanium)

The Falling Guillotine may be the most coveted legendary sword at the moment, but that’s only because this weapon is only available to Titans. The Crown Shard has quickly established itself as an elite weapon due to its insane DPS and fun aspect. Crown Shard is the most explosive sword in the game so far, and I’ve even seen many people use it in the late game. You know guns are good (maybe even too good) when some people use them instead of anarchy. Anarchy in the endgame is the game’s most common weapon, but Crown Splitter does its best to defy that.

God Scroll Crown Distributor:

  • Sharp edge
  • Heavy duty protection
  • Merciless blows
  • Weapons of the dagger

Ignition code

Received from: Seasonal Engram.

Ignition Code is not only a powerful grenade launcher, but also one of the best legendary kinetic weapons in Destiny 2 as a whole. A kinetic grenade launcher of this quality is a rarity, but it gets even better with this season’s artifact mods. Breach and Clear has completely invaded the metagame this season, and Ignition Code fits perfectly with what it wants to do. He’s good for ad-sweeps because he’s a grenade thrower (which is exactly what they do), but he also helps a lot with boss DPS. Shoot once with this weapon at the boss to activate Breach and Clear (and also do a lot of damage with the vorpal weapon), after that you can use another weapon at will. This weapon is a great advantage in any situation.

God Roll ignition code:

  • Hard or fast start
  • Stun grenades or stun grenades
  • Slideshot of ambitious Killer
  • Weapons of the dagger

3 /10

Emergency kit

Salvager’s Salvo does everything Ignition Code does, but with a longer range. Right now, I’d say he’s on par with Trinity Ghoul in terms of publicity fade, but his legendary status makes him much more valuable. His warped roll is actually perfect for what he’s being used for, and his DPS on bosses is nothing to laugh at, as long as you’re using him in low-level content. The only drawback to Salvo is that it is an energy weapon, but it is still superior to most other energy weapons in the game. If you’re looking for publicity, this is the top of the bunch. And to top it off, you don’t even have to do anything complicated to buy it.

Miners’ Battle God’s Throw

  • Quick start
  • Armour-piercing grenades
  • Ambitious killer or destroyer
  • Dagger weapon or chain reaction

I like Fatebringer so much because of the quality of their sandwiches. Explosiveness is one of the best assets of the moment. This allows hand cannons to do a lot of damage even at very long distances. The latter benefits were not without merit: Firefly is great for cleaning up ads, and Frenzy is great in the late game when you desperately need that extra damage. The Fatebringer is one of the few hand cannons I can use with ease at Grandmaster level, and I’m more than happy to use it for most of the Vaults of Glass raid at Master level. This is one of the best all round pistols you can have right now, you just have to be lucky to get a good shot at VoG.

Fatebringer God Role:

  • Corkscrew or complete gun
  • Accurate ammunition
  • Explosive charge
  • Firefly or Merryweather.

The SMG IKELOS is not a super flashy weapon, but it is so consistently excellent that I had to mark it as the best legendary primary weapon in Destiny 2. The main appeal of this weapon is that it can spawn Warmind cells, and it is by far the best weapon to do so. This thing pierces weak enemies like they’re nothing, and can take on stronger opponents with ease. Even if you don’t buy the Warmind Cells, it’s still a great weapon. It is easy to purchase, has good benefits and the damage is exactly what you need. Overall, this is one of the best legendary weapons in Destiny 2.

IKELOS_SMG_v1.0.2 Role of God:

  • Corkscrew or small arms
  • Seraphim’s rounds
  • Threat or backyard detector
  • Encircling or dagger weapons
