The Top 10 Best ‘Destiny 2: The Witch Queen’ Weapons And Their God Rolls

Destiny 2

Bungie

Barring any last minute secrets, we now have full access to the arsenal of Destiny 2’s The Witch Queen and its attached Risen season. Not only that, but at this point I now have the crafting pattern for every legendary and exotic minus the raid weapons, and I figure it was about time to start doing a ranking list.

Some of these are getting boosts from seasonal mods and void 3.0, but others are going to be good long after this season. Here are my ten picks, along with my favorite rolls.

Destiny 2

Bungie

10. Forensic Nightmare (Stasis SMG) – I don’t love all that many of the Throne World weapons, but Forensic Nightmare stands out to me as a go to for my Hunter Stasis build as the only Stasis SMG out there that can shred mods with well boosts. Plus it’s debuffing whatever you’re shooting.

Favorite Roll: Perpetual Motion/Kill Clip – The damage boost on Kill Clip combined with stasis boosts make it nutty. This can also roll Headstone, however, if you can land those close range shots.

Destiny 2

Bungie

9. Thoughtless (Stasis Sniper Rifle) – While I am not a big sniper person, even I can recognize the addition of this as a key DPS weapon from the Risen collection.

Favorite Roll: Overflow/Firing Line – Overflow will stack it up to something like 8 or 9 in the mag, more if you enhance it, and Firing Line is one of the best current DPS boosts in the game after a series of nerfs have hit many others.

Destiny 2

Bungie

8. Palmyra-B (Stasis Rocket Launcher) – The only bit of craftable world loot on this list, the Hakke launcher can shred tanks with its inherent trait.

Favorite Roll: Autoloading/Explosive Light – As far as I know this is one of only two rocket launchers that can roll Auto/Explosive, the other being Hothead. But unlike Hothead, this one has inborn tracking, and is stasis so it can be boosted by well builds.

Destiny 2

Bungie

7. Piece of Mind (Kinetic Pulse Rifle) – Rapid Fire Pulses have been a top choice in PvP on and off for a while now with more and more being added to the game, but now we have a king to rule them all.

Favorite Roll: Perpetual Motion/Elemental Capacitor – Capacitor is a huge stat boost for PvP play across all subclasses, even more so when you enhance it. Adrenaline Junkie is the other option there for damage stacks or big boosts from grenade kills.

Destiny 2

Bungie

6. Deliverance (Stasis Fusion Rifle) – Just the fact that we now have a legendary fusion rifle that exists in this slot for the first time is a huge deal, not to mention the fact that it’s a pretty good one.

Favorite Roll: Perpetual Motion/Chill Clip – When used with a stasis build especially, Chill Clip can act like a variant of Reservoir Burst with exploding enemies into ice shards.

Destiny 2

Bungie

5. The Enigma (Void Glaive) – Look, I don’t know how glaives will feel after this season and they lose some of their boosts, but for now? This thing is ridiculous with its ability to suppress on every single shot with a seasonal mod.

Favorite Roll: Impulse Amplifier/Frenzy – The only glaive, exotic or legendary, that can roll Impulse Amplifier, which totally changes its entire feel and is essentially a must-have for projectile speed. Absolutely gamechanging.

Destiny 2

Bungie

4. Under Your Skin (Void Bow) – This very well may be the best non-exotic bow in the game, which is saying something, given the other options in place, including old sunset ones like Hush.

Favorite Roll: Archer’s Tempo/Successful Warm-Up – My first double enhanced perk weapon, I knew there was no question that I wanted to invest into this thing. This makes draw speed even faster than Hush, and while the kinetic Throne World bow can also roll this, this is a precision frame for higher damage, not lightweight. Plus it’s void and can trigger volatile rounds. Oh and it has Land Tank since it’s a Risen weapon for damage reduction. See? Nuts.

Destiny 2

Bungie

3. Forbearance (Arc Breach Grenade Launcher) – This is easily one of the best special weapons in the game right now because of one perk and one perk only.

Favorite Roll: Ambitious Assassin/Chain Reaction – The fact that this is both a wave frame grenade launcher that can also roll chain reaction means it outclasses ritual weapon Salvager’s Salvo immediately. You can pair chain with anything, but AA will give it a bonus shot.

Destiny 2

Bungie

2. Osteo Striga (Exotic Kinetic SMG) – A preview of what seems like our inevitable poison class, this is my most used weapon of the season and one of the best mob clear options in the game, especially with its catalyst and the recent 40% damage buff on red bar enemies from exotic primaries.

Favorite Roll: Max Range – I forget which options to set to get here, but with an auto tracking SMG, get that range to 100 and watch it work.

Destiny 2

Bungie

1. Funnelweb (Void SMG) – What’s a king to a god? Recluse was far and away one of the best weapons in Destiny history, but a Funnelweb with the right rolls and some help from void 3.0 means it’s even better.

Favorite Roll: Perpetual Motion/Adrenaline Junkie – In the current meta, Adrenaline Junkie is a must-have damage perk, and grenade kills for well generation will give it volatile rounds for an insane level of mob clear. Perpetual Motion is the perfect level of perma-boost an SMG like this needs.
