The Strongest Destiny 2 Weapons with the Highest DPS

1136

You've probably heard a saying about bringing a knife to a gunfight, which means stepping into a difficult situation without being fully prepared. When we talk about an actual weapon choice in the game, that idiom really hits a nerve, although bringing a gun is only half the story, 'cause you need it to be the right gun.

Regardless of whether you are planning intensive raiding or just wanna know the best-hitting options for taking out strong enemies, we've got you covered. We've prepared a bunch of lists with the best PvP and PvE weapons in the game, and have also come up with a short review on D2 weapons with the highest DPS. After this, you might consider making some improvements to your build, so feel free to take a look at our Destiny 2 boost offers on the website. But alright, first things first – we've promised you a weapons guide, so let's get into it.

How can Destiny 2 boost help you

With Season of Opulence's arrival, the issue of choosing the most powerful Destiny 2 weapons has become more acute than ever. Figuring out a proper build for each type of in-game activity is extremely important if you want to progress fast and unleash your true killing potential. As you know, Destiny 2 weapons come in different categories – Kinetic, Energy, and Power – which is also highly crucial depending on the objective you have to accomplish and enemies you need to deal with. We won't go into details about each category's specifics (cause it's worth a whole stand-alone article) – just gonna give you a couple of tips on how to maximize DPS in Destiny 2. Take good note, Guardian, it might come in handy.

For maximum DPS you need:

  • to increase your power level as much as possible;
  • to make good use of your skills and combine them properly (Empower Rift skill for Warlock, for example, boosts your weapon damage a great deal; Hammer Strike for Titan weakens your enemies and therefore deals more damage);
  • to try to be accurate – critical hits are essential in damage-dealing;
  • not to waste your time – sometimes a mere second can matter a lot when it comes to maximizing damage;
  • to make sure you're equipped with the most effective weapons and feel comfortable using them.

Keep in mind that almost every exotic and legendary weapon in D2 is possible to purchase with the help of our boosting service. It'll be quicker and way more pleasant than on your own. So if you decide to make your in-game life easier and take a decent shortcut, check out our weapon boosts section. And now if you don't mind, we'll jump straight to those DPS monsters that will make every build deadly as hell.

Destiny 2 weapons with the highest DPS

Just before we get to business, let us mention one thing: we're gonna talk only about normal DPS and normal total damage numbers to give you a better idea of each weapon's performance. Raid DPS numbers might be slightly different, but the overall picture will remain the same.

We will start with hand cannons which surprisingly have a pretty high DPS, especially with a Precision perk. Luna's Howl with its Magnificent Howl is definitely gonna rock. The longer you can keep getting critical shots, the higher your DPS is gonna fly. Lumina Exotic hand cannon is another beast with some nasty damage buffs. Sturm can get you up to 20k DPS but sadly if you pair it with Drang it's gonna eliminate a lot of DPS potential out of it. Malfeasance is also worth mentioning – it's super stable and extremely dangerous.

The next ones on our list are auto rifles, and here we only have two exotics: Sweet Business and Cerberus +1, which performs well only with good RNG Spread.

Outbreak Perfected pulse rifle gets stronger the more you use it: DPS continues to increase the longer you fire this beauty, and High Impact with Desperado perk will bump your DPS to up around 13k.

In sniper rifles category, Darcy is definitely the queen. It's one of the most reliable weapons in D2, especially with Rapid Fire perk. Whisper of the Worm may be out-DPSed by some of the weapons mentioned above, but its total damage remains one of the highest in the game.

Grenade launchers are just insane in terms of damage-dealing. Wendigo GL3 has the highest DPS in the whole game thanks to its Explosive Light perk. Mountaintop shows an impressive number of nearly 55k damage points (and is also available in our Destiny 2 Mountaintop offer with an incredible discount).

Fusion rifles are not far behind. Sleeper Simulant with the Catalyst and One Thousand Voices both deal around 50k DPS. Loaded question and Merciless at max charge are pretty impressive as well, so get a closer look at those fusions – they are not bad at all.

Our last but not the least contestants are shotguns: Lord of Wolves with almost 50k DPS and the Chaperone with a good old Lightweight perk.

Destiny 2 best weapons for PvP

With all the in-game diversity, The Crucible is still one of the most fearsome and thrilling activities in Destiny 2. To impress the mighty Lord Shaxx you will need to pick your weapons wisely, but don`t worry – we have some solid PvP tips just for you. If you haven`t made your build yet or are looking for some changes, our short weapon compilation is exactly what you need.

  • Kinetic:
    • Lumina is vastly popular in the arena. It heals allies and buffs damage. Absolute essential, if you ask us;
    • Bad Juju was a real super-star in the first Destiny game and now it`s back to melt all your PvP opponents down.
  • Energy:
    • Lord of Wolves shotgun is a savage killer that will leave your opponents no chances;
    • Recluse SMG really slays with the highest TTK in the game;
    • Luna`s Howl is a fast and highly-accurate murder tool, which totally lives up to its reputation.
  • Power:
    • One Thousand Voices is a monstrously-looking fusion rifle that we'll be your true friend on the arena. Range and impact are mind-blowing. It's very useful in PvP, 'cause it can take down several enemies at once (and it's also very easy to get with our One Thousand Voices farm boost);
    • Grenade launchers are currently facing a huge increase in popularity. For power slot almost any GL is gonna be good, but our absolute favorite is Anarchy – one of the best around for Crucible. If you don't know how to get Anarchy Exotic Grenade Launcher (or any other weapon from this article), we'll gladly provide you with a proper boost, just let us know.
  • Destiny 2 best weapons for PvE

    We know that picking a weapon for a decent PvE performance can become a nasty thorn in the flesh, and that's why we've come up with a bunch of good weapon combos to make you unstoppable even in the hardest challenges.

    • Mountaintop + Recluse + Anarchy Exotic;
    • Breakneck + Ikelos + Whisper of the Worm;
    • Loaded Question/Merciless + Sleeper Simulant;
    • Outbreak Perfected + Wendigo GL3;
    • Swarm of the Raven + Tractor cannon (in case you're wondering how to use Swarm of the Raven + Tractor cannon, just let your allied player fire the shotgun while you're using the GL on the boss, and the DPS will skyrocket for sure).
