Best Destiny 2 PvP Weapons

The current Destiny 2 PvP weapon Tier List is based on the meta, weapon strengths and personal use.  Because this list is weighted based on what is being used most in PvP newer weapons tend to show up frequently on the list.  Different situations and maps also require different weapons.  This is an overall look at what is currently performing well based on community and personal use. 

NOTE: I weight community use more heavily than my own preference. 


Revoker holds steady at #1 after a week where it dropped almost off the charts.  The Last Word jumps up one spot to #3 based on community use pushing Dust Rock Blues and Crimson both down one spot.  Community use bumped the rest of the list in very minor ways, not enough for me to make a change to list.  

  1. Revoker 
  2. Spare Rations
  3. The Last Word (UP 1)
  4. Dust Rock Blues (DOWN 1)
  5. Crimson  (DOWN 1)
  6. Thorn 
  7. Arbalest 
  8. Bygones
  9. Ace of Spades
  10. Randy's Throwing Knife 


The Recluse dropped six spots solely on community usage statistics.  I'm not sure why it dropped so dramatically.  I used it as I normally do.  Symmetry and Claws of the Wolf, two of my mainstays fell off the list.  Apparently I'm one of the few who still uses them. I haven't completed the Symmetry catalyst quest yet.  Jötunn and Devil's Ruin joined the top 10 list.  

  1. Not Forgotten 
  2. Luna's Howl 
  3. Mindbender's Ambition
  4. Beloved 
  5. Erentil FR4
  6. Lord of Wolves 
  7. Trust
  8. Jötunn
  9. Devil's Ruin
  10. The Recluse (DOWN 6)


No changes to power weapons this week. 

  1. Hammerhead
  2. The Wardcliff Coil
  3. Play of the Game
  4. Truth
  5. Avalanche
  6. The Colony
  7. Black Talon
  8. Bad Omens 
  9. Komodo-4FR
  10. Crooked Fan-4FR
