In Destiny 2, PVP revolves around shotguns, and these are the best ones that players can get for the Crucible.
Destiny 2 is now a well-known name in the action MMO genre. In its second part, it has set the standard for looter shooters and ruled the genre with its constantly growing story and lore. Destiny 2 also has a large PVE and PVP community where players can pick and choose the best parts of the game and enjoy them to the fullest.
The shooting in Destiny 2 is one of its most praised parts. The most important thing about the game’s PVP setting is that there are guns to shoot, and Bungie made sure that many of them feel great to shoot. Shotguns are a type of tool that is used a lot in the field. There are many different things to do in the game, but some are better than others. Here are Destiny 2’s best weapons for PVP.
The Root of Nightmares raid in Lightfall’s new location, Neptune, is where you can get Conditional Finality, the newest raid Exotic in the game. Conditional Finality has quickly become a powerhouse in PVE, thanks to the fact that its Stasis and Solar pellets can both freeze and fire targets.
However, it has also been used a little bit in PVP, which is easy to understand. The power to freeze a target with one shot is very appealing to many players who like to use Stasis CC on their opponents in PVP. It’s not the easiest tool to use, but those who like to get up close and personal should definitely try it out.
Fractethyst is an old but good weapon from Season of the Lost. It is sometimes for sale in Xur’s collection, so players should keep an eye out for this good choice for a Stasis shotgun. Fractethyst is a precision frame that is easy to use, which makes it appealing, even though its PVP perk pool isn’t the biggest.
In the first column, players will want either Slideshot or Quickdraw, and the second column supports Opening Shot for that extra boost when first fighting an enemy. This shotgun is a great choice for new players, even though it can be hard to get from Xur.
Found Verdict is one of the best Legendary handguns in Destiny 2 PVP, and it comes with the Vault of Glass raid. Even better, the Timelost version of it has higher stats for those who love to min-max to their hearts’ joy. It’s an Arc shotgun that has been a favorite among PVP shotgun fans for a long time.
The good old Slideshot is in the first column, which goes well with the shotgun playstyle. In the second section, the best choice is still Opening Shot, which boosts your range and accuracy when you first fight an enemy in PVP.
If a player wants to put their shotgun in the Kinetic slot, they don’t have to look any further than the Wastelander M5, a shotgun that can be made after completing the Dares of Eternity quest. The fact that it can be crafted and that it has the Hot Swap Origin Trait are both great reasons for PVP mains to grind this weapon out. Hot Swap simply makes it easier to use the Wastelander M5 after taking damage.
In the first column, the best perk for the Wastelander M5 is “Perpetual Motion.” In the second column, the best perk is “Opening Shot.” Slideshot is also a great choice. And those who like to move around a lot might even choose the Air Assault perk.
Since the beginning of PVP, Felwinter’s Lie has been a famous card. For 75,000 Glimmer, 100 Legendary Shards, 2 Enhancement Prisms, and 1 Ascendant Shard. You can buy this customized roll at the Monument to Lost Lights. It used to be a limited-time weapon, but it has been a fan choice for a long time.
Slideshot and Opening shot come with Felwinter’s Lie. But they can be switched out for Vorpal Weapon and Surplus when needed. As a Solar shotgun, it’s a safe and easy choice that’s easy to get for players who don’t have a good shotgun and would rather buy a good roll than work for one.
In Season of Defiance, Imperial Decree is back. If a person has extra Defiant Engrams, they can focus this expensive weapon at the War Table in the H.E.L.M. Once enough Deepsight Patterns are unlocked, players can make this weapon. Its Enhanced perks make it even more appealing.
In PVP, both Slideshot and Threat Detector in the first column are very good picks. Opening Shot in the second column is a tried-and-true perk that players can’t go wrong with. It’s a good Kinetic shotgun that competes with the Wastelander M5 in the same slot. Despite the SMG meta, it even made it into the top 10 Trials of Osiris guns.
Matador 64 is an Arc shotgun that can be found in the Grasp of Avarice dungeon. It has also been on the list of the best guns in Crucible (Trials and Competitive, as of season 20). It has some great benefits for some PVE Arc builds, and it can also be used for PVP.
In the first column, you can choose from Perpetual Motion, Threat Detector, or Pulse Monitor for Drift Boss. Even though it was nerfed last year, Killing Wind is still in the second column. It helps with aim and range like Opening Shot. Sometimes, Swashbuckler works well for fighting builds that are close to the enemy. The only bad thing about it is that it can’t be made. But if a player gets a godroll, they can’t go wrong with this shotgun.
Destiny 2 can be played on a PC, a PS4, an Xbox One, a PS5, and an Xbox Series X/S.
