Every season, Bungie adds a ton of new weapons and armor to the loot pool in-game, along with some tweaks and weapon balancing patches. This means, with each season, there’s going to be a new meta and new weapons that are going to reign supreme. Today, we are going to discuss the top ten weapons you can use inside the Destiny 2 PvP in Season of Arrivals.

Top 10 Weapons in Destiny 2 Season of Arrivals

If you’re looking to try out the best weapons in the Trials of Osiris or the Iron Banner, or simply in the Crucible, you can find out recommended weapons below.

Bastion

Bastion is an exotic kinetic fusion rifle added in Season of Dawn. The weapon has a unique perk that allows it to shoot three kinetic slugs, deadly at close range combat in PvP. You can find the weapon’s perks below:

  • Saint’s Fists: Charge to fire 3 spreads of Kinetic slugs.
  • Breakthrough: A portion of this weapon’s damage bypasses elemental shields.

The Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned is one of Destiny 2’s vanilla hand cannons. This weapon is a 140RPM with random rolls. For the absolute god roll for The Old Fashioned, you should be looking out for a perk combination of Accurized Rounds, Feeding Frenzy, and Kill Clip. This will allow you to reload faster every time you get a kill inside PvP, no matter the body shot of headshot.

The Summoner

The Summoner is an energy auto rifle added with the Trials of Osiris in Season of the Worthy. Recently, auto rifles in Destiny 2 got a huge buff, making them a really go-to weapon type in the Crucible. God roll for The Summoner in PvP that I prefer is Ricochet Rounds, Zen Moment, and Rangefinder. This will allow you to get those long-range shots without having too much recoil.

Beloved

Next up, we have an energy sniper rifle that has been called out for one of the best snipers in PvP. Beloved was added in Season of Opulence last year. This sniper is a 90RPM weapon with random rolls. So, for PvP god roll, you should look for something like Snapshot Sights with Moving Target or Snapshot Sights with Quickdraw, depending on personal preference.

The Mountaintop

The Mountaintop is a pinnacle grenade launcher (Crucible) added in Season of the Armory. Its unique perk is Micro-Missile, which allows the grenades to fire in a straight line. It’s highly useful inside PvP and PvE as well. If you haven’t acquired this weapon, you can get the quest from Lord Shaxx.

  • Micro-Missile: This weapon fires in a straight line and has a massively increased projectile speed.

Another pinnacle weapon from the competitive playlist was added in Season of Opulence. Revoker is a 72RPM Aggressive Frame sniper rifle with a pinnacle perk called, Reversal of Fortune that will return any missed shots to the magazine.
