    The Final Shape is underway and its first episode has just been released, so players are knee-deep in the content with their eyes set on the challenges Destiny 2 has to offer. If you’re hoping to tackle master content or Grandmaster Nightfalls, then you’ll want to pick up some of the best legendary weapons available to make the task easier.

    Best Legendary Weapons and God Rolls in Destiny 2 The Final Shape

    Legendary weapons are the biggest part of Destiny 2, as we can only equip one Exotic weapon at a time, so making sure you have enough backups for all content is a must. We’ve compiled a list of weaponry you’ll need in your arsenal if you’re looking to take on the Witness and gain some power.

    10. M5 Moor

    As a Strand Titan, I’m partial to the Wastelander M5, thanks to its ability to deliver One-Two-Punch; This perk will dramatically increase your ability to lock your opponent into the ground for any melee class. Since this is a shotgun and we put an emphasis on CQC, we use the Full Choke barrel and Steady Rounds to ensure all of our pellets hit the center. Its strength relative to other legendary shotguns is not the greatest, but this lever-action model has a special place in my heart.

    Did I mention the Wastelander M5 looks great? Well now you know.

    God Scroll:

    • Barrel: Full choke
    • Magazine: Constant rounds
    • Benefit 1: Photo slide
    • Benefit 2: One-two-punch

    9. BXR-55 Fighter

    The Halo Battle Rifle is on this list because of my own bias (it’s the best thing in the entire game). But do not be fooled! This three-shot burst pulse rifle is reliable and effective in defeating red slash mobs thanks to the advantages of this weapon platform. Recoil is almost non-existent, so you can be sure that you will make precision shots easier than any other weapon – the perfect choice for beginners. Demolitionist is my personal choice as a Titan, but since the BXR-55 Battler can be crafted, you can swap it out for a more suitable perk, although Incandescent is a must. The BXR is a solar weapon, so it pairs incredibly well with Incandescent and is a monster at tearing through hordes of mobs with a large clip.

    God Scroll:

    • Barrel: Arrowhead brake
    • Magazine: Bounce rounds
    • Benefit 1: Demolitionist
    • Perk 2: Incandescent

    8. Bane of Chelchis

    As one of the only weapons capable of using as much explosive charge as Dragonfly, Doom of Chelchis has incredible clarity with layers and layers of explosions. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a simple damage boost, we can swap Firefly for One for All and increase our stopping power by 35%.

    Doom of Chelchis is a Void weapon that has perfect synergy with the Void subclass and plenty of prismatic shenanigans, so consider picking this up if you’re a Void player or if scout rifles are your thing. I wanted to make sure scout rifle players had at least one recommendation on this list, as they are a criminally underrepresented weapon type.

    God Scroll:

    • Barrel: Small hole
    • Magazine: Magwell flared
    • Benefit 1: Explosive charge
    • Benefit 2: One for all/Dragonfly

    7. Convicted petitioner

    Linear fusion rifles have never been my thing, they felt clunky and slow. Enter the Doomed Petitioner with one of the fastest fire rates of all LFR weapons and I can finally admit that they aren’t that bad. The Envious Assassin’s accessibility is exactly what puts this rifle in the upper echelons of weaponry, providing an overflow magazine that allows for consistent damage against bosses. It requires more effort than something like Reconstruction, but the reward is well worth overcoming the extra hurdle.

    For the second buff, I choose the trusty precision instrument, since if we ever miss a precision hit against a boss, then we’re already wasting damage. Combine both perks and make sure you get it right and you will surpass the health bars almost instantly.

    God Scroll:

    • Barrel: Fluted barrel
    • Magazine: Ionized battery
    • Benefit 1: Envious killer
    • Benefit 2: Precision instrument

    6. Ikelos_SMG_V1.0.3

    Like other extremely powerful SMGs, the Ikelos_SMG can only be obtained through an exotic quest that rotates weekly. If you’re like me and miss that week, then you have no choice but to wait three weeks for it to come back. The Ikelos_SMG itself is weaker than some on this list, but it shines when combined with an Arc playstyle: the Voltshot perk can boost the subclass and deal with certain champions.

    The reason Ikelos_SMG doesn’t score higher on our list is generally due to its bow type and perk set. There may be a better option available, but it is an acceptable alternative if you can farm the weapon consistently.

    God Scroll:

    • Barrel: Hammer Forged Rifle
    • Magazine: Seraphim rounds
    • Perk 1:Feeding frenzy
    • Benefit 2: Voltshot

    5. Zaouli’s Nightmare

    Zaouli’s Bane is Sunshot without occupying the Exotic position; Its explosive charge and solar type allow it to chain-explode a series of mobs in just a couple of shots. There aren’t many legendaries that perform as well as their exotic counterpart and that’s why Zaouli’s Bane ranks so high on our list. The Explosive Payload increases PvE damage by 15% and each shot has a small area-of-effect burst, while Incandescent causes all enemies to become singed and eventually ignite in stronger explosions.

    If you don’t have this Hand Cannon monster yet, then you should spend some time farming it and reading about the King’s Fall raid.

    God rolls:

    • Barrel: Fluted barrel
    • Magazine: Magwell flared
    • Benefit 1: Explosive charge
    • Benefit 2: Incandescent

    4. Succession

    The Succession has consistently been one of the best legendary weapons since its release and has even performed well in PvP as an added bonus. However, we’re looking at the PvE side of things and thanks to buffs like Reconstruction and Recombination, Succession can keep up with exotic snipers to keep damaging bosses. To ensure we use Reconstruction to its maximum effectiveness, be sure to pair this weapon with a hard-hitting launcher and a high primary ammo capacity; Throw each shot into the magazine, switch weapons, and repeat until the boss is dead.

    I turn to this sniper whenever I need a solid answer to a difficult boss or just to shoot on the fly.

    God Scroll:

    • Barrel: Arrowhead breakage
    • Magazine: Tactical Magazine
    • Perk 1: Reconstruction
    • Perk 2: Recombination

    3. The call

    Introduced at the beginning of The Final Shape, Call has quickly earned a place in the meta thanks to his incredibly high damage and good buff set. Similar to the Indebted Kindness, this weapon looks much more like a hand cannon and has the advantage of launching missiles with each shot. The Call’s devastating output makes it one of The Final Shape’s must-haves, and thanks to its relative newness, it can be farmed very easily throughout the campaign and while exploring Pale Heart for collectibles.

    Leading Gold as our first buff ensures that we never run out of ammo, as long as there are plenty of red bar mobs to farm. Because this weapon is equipped with explosive missiles as ammunition, we can activate the 35% increased damage of Desperate Measures when hitting three separate targets.

    God Scroll:

    • Barrel: Volatile launch
    • Magazine: High Explosives Ordinance
    • Benefit 1: Gold lead
    • Benefit 2: Desperate measures

    2. Calus Mini Tool

    Despite its annoying availability, the Calus Mini Tool is always at the top of “Best Legendary Weapon” lists due to its incredible damage, perfect perks, and excellent rate of fire per minute. To get your hands on this amazing SMG, you’ll need to farm the Presage exotic quest which unfortunately is only available once every three weeks.

    The Calus Mini Tool is my go-to for adding clear SMG for every difficulty level and I promise you won’t be disappointed. Its only negative aspect is the difficulty in farming this weapon due to the exotic quest rotation, however, it can be crafted, so as soon as you find five red-rimmed mini-tools you can choose your perks.

    Speaking of which: Relentless is an obvious first choice thanks to its ability to trigger health regeneration on quick kills; This can be the difference between life and death in some scenarios. The incandescent prevalence on this list should tell you everything you need to know about its potency. No other benefit of the Mini Tool offers the same amount of power, making it a must-have.

    God Scroll:

    • Barrel: Hammer Forged Rifle
    • Magazine: Curized rounds
    • Perk 1: relentless
    • Perk 2: Incandescent

    1. Apex predator

    Apex Predator takes the gold medal due to its incredibly high damage and some of the best buffs in the entire game. Rebuild allows you to reload the weapon while dealing damage with other weapons, and Bait and Switch increases your damage by 35% when you switch to this caster. If you continue the cycle, you will constantly activate these buffs and destroy any boss that comes your way. This rocket launcher has seen me through a lot of content and I have to recommend it to everyone who doesn’t have this bad boy in their back pocket.

    True to its namesake, this launcher has the ability to take you to the absolute pinnacle of Destiny 2’s content and help you navigate through it; Don’t miss out on this incredible weapon.

    God Scroll:

    • Barrel: Fast food
    • Magazine: Impact housing
    • Perk 1: Reconstruction
    • Benefit 2: Bait and switch

    As long as you get some of the weapons on this list, you’ll be ready to take on the toughest content Destiny 2 has to offer. Just make sure you acquire God Rolls or you’ll see drastically reduced potential.
