Shadowkeep starter weapon pack: What loadout is the best to meet the new Destiny 2 DLC?
23rd September 2019
What Destiny 2 weapons will do good in the upcoming update?
The speculations around Bungie’s new installment for Destiny 2 do not cease to circulate through the fan community. The game is back on the radar with a bunch of promising updates that are likely to change some of the core concepts of our favorite science-fantasy shooter. And while you are busy scrolling through our website looking for a nice Destiny 2 carry, we’re gonna make it easier for you by offering one or two options for perfecting your loadout.
In this article, we will share some insights into the weapons that will most probably continue being the top ones and defining Destiny 2 meta just like they are doing now. Judging by where things currently stand, three weapons have proven to be particularly effective and powerful. The holy trinity includes two grenade launchers – Mountaintop and Wendigo – and a well-known Recluse SMG. If they are not affected by any balance changes (yes, Bungie, we know you like nerfing things), we will get ourselves a pretty solid weapon choice to jump to the next D2 chapter.
Destiny 2 Shadowkeep is shaping up to be quite something, but with just a couple of adjustments to your loadout, you will be fully prepared to face any hardships it throws at you.
Destiny 2 best weapons to start playing Shadowkeep
Destiny 2 Mountaintop GL
In a manner of speaking, this weapon is a total breakthrough not only in D2 but also in the whole franchise. We are used to GLs being strictly heavy weapons, but Mountaintop completely changes this well-established principle. It’s a kinetic weapon, which means it can be equipped to your first slot and, in doing so, frees the heavy one for another even more damage-dealing item. Speaking of damage,
How to get Mountaintop Destiny 2 GL?
It is obtainable through the Crucible quest, which has recently been drastically eased. It’s still a long journey but now it’s at least bearable and more or less balanced for above-average players. So, in order to obtain this GL, it’s necessary to complete the following steps:
- earn Glory in the Crucible until you hit Fabled rank;
- complete a special Triumphs by landing 750 regular kills and 75 multikills with GLs and earning 25 medals.
Then you stop by the Tower to chat with Shaxx, and this will get you your Mountaintop.
Destiny 2 Recluse SMG
Recluse is, well, Recluse. Being the fastest SMG in D2 with the record-breaking TTK of 0.46 seconds, it is irreplaceable for add clearing and boss damage, ‘cause it absolutely melts in PvE. It’s stable, it has a solid range, and it’s exclusive perk substantially buffs damage for any kill you manage to land, which basically comes to one simple truth: as long as you keep killing with any weapon from your loadout,
How to get Recluse Destiny 2 SMG?
Well, to obtain this gem, you’ll have to take some pains. After you take the quest by visiting Shaxx in the Tower, you’ll face two objectives:
- earn Glory in the Crucible until you hit Fabled rank;
- win a particular number of Crucible matches.
It’s not as easy as it might occur at first, but for a strong Crucible player, it’s really gonna be a piece of cake. If your PvP skills are not high enough, then you’ll have to exert all your powers, but we can assure you – Recluse is totally worth your while.
Destiny 2 Wendigo GL
This beauty goes straight into your heavy slot, and along with the two abovementioned weapons forms the most lethal combo ever known in D2.
How to get Wendigo GL3?
As it’s a Vanguard weapon, the quest is received from Zavala and requires a certain prowess in handling GLs. The objectives are the following:
- delivering 1500 GL final blows;
- delivering 500 GL multikills;
- earning points in Strikes.
Not exactly a child’s play, but now thanks to the almighty nerfs, your progress bars will be filled a lot faster.

As October is stepping on our toes, we are more than ready to jump into the welcoming arms of D2’s eight
Destiny 2 Shadowkeep weapons: What’s new?
Destiny 2 armory continues to expand. It has over six hundred weapons and keeps growing, as Bungie keeps adding more and more items. That is great if you ask us. The opportunities in making combos and creating various loadouts truly have no boundaries. Well, almost no boundaries, ‘cause as we all know, not every weapon is easy to get. While some gush like water from a burst pipe, dropping from all quarters, the others require tedious and nerve-racking grind.
Shadowkeep and the Eighth Season of the Undying will massively enhance D2 weapon collection with some new exciting additions. We are talking about such exotics as
