5) Randy’s Throwing Knife
The legendary Rapid Fire Framed Scout Rifle has made its triumphant return to the Destiny 2 loot pool. This time, there are a total of 24 perks to choose from, and you can obtain this weapon as a drop by finishing PvP matches in the Crucible. Randy’s Throwing Knife is a versatile weapon that excels in both PvP and PvE encounters. Perk combinations such as Perpetual Motion and Kill Clip make it lethal in 1v1 engagements, while Rapid Hit and Focused Fury are great for sustained DPS against elites and Champions.
4) No Survivors
No Survivors is the new Solar Submachine Gun that drops from all encounters in the Ghosts of the Deep Dungeon. With its powerful perks and Aggressive Framed archetype, it’s a highly viable weapon for endgame content. Unlike most seasonal weapons, No Survivors cannot be crafted. You must acquire the best perks through drops. In PvP, look for perk combinations involving Rangefinder and Target Lock. For PvE, focus on add-clearing with perks like Demolitionist and Incandescent.
3) Bug-Out Bag
If you’re having trouble finding a decent No Survivors from the Dungeon, you can head to the seasonal HELM. Spending some Deep Engrams there will allow you to obtain the returning Reckoning gear, including Bug-Out Bag. This Solar Submachine Gun fires at an impressive 900 RPM and has an Adaptive Framed archetype. It’s a great alternative for those seeking high fire rate weapons. In PvP, consider perks like Subsistence and Incandescent, while Perpetual Motion and Killing Wind shine in both PvP and PvE scenarios.
2) Spare Rations
Spare Rations has been one of the most sought-after weapons since its sun-setting. This Adaptive Framed Hand Cannon fires at 140 RPM and offers perks that give players a significant advantage on the PvP battlefield. Rapid Hit and Kill Clip are excellent choices for shutting down opponents in Crucible. Furthermore, you can pair Spare Rations with this season’s Unstoppable mod to enhance its usefulness in PvE. Consider perks like Vorpal Weapon and Slideshot to improve damage and utility.
1) Apex Predator
Apex Predator is the surprise entry of the season, featuring powerful perks that make it even stronger than renowned Rocket Launchers such as Hezen Vengeance, Roar of the Bear, and Hothead. With Reconstruction and Bait and Switch in its perk pool, Apex Predator can deal devastating damage, especially in combination with Gjallarhorn. It is recommended to farm the Last Wish Raid this season to unlock the Apex Predator for crafting.
These five weapons should be your top priority for farming in Destiny 2 Season of the Deep. Remember to optimize your gear with the correct perks for each situation. Happy farming, Guardians!
