Best Destiny 2 Weapons You Need To Get Before Forsaken Launches

Destiny 2 is going to get a major uplift in the shape of the upcoming Destiny 2 Forsaken DLC. There are going to be some changes in the game and some weapons are not going to be available as rewards when the upcoming Destiny 2 Forsaken DLC is released. Here is a list of all the weapons that you need to get before the upcoming DLC comes out.

Destiny 2 Weapons You Need To Get Before September 4th

The following are all the best weapons that you need to get in Destiny 2 before Forsaken DLC is launched:

Crooked Fang-4SR

When Forsaken DLC comes out this weapon will no longer be available. It was added in Curse of Osiris and is only available from the weapons vendor. If you do not already have this weapon then you should get it as it is one of the best linear fusion rifles in the game.

Old Fashioned

This is one of the most popular hand cannons in crucible right now because it has the Drop Mag and Kill Clip perks that can melt enemies in no time at all. Right now you can get the weapon from the weapons vendor or from a rare Legendary Engram drop.

Nameless Midnight

This kinetic scout rifle is one of the best weapons in the game and is a favorite of our very own Arslan Tufail. The weapon has the explosive payload, steady rounds and precision frame perks. You can get the weapon by playing the campaign but as of right now we are not sure whether or not it will be obtainable in the upcoming Forsaken DLC.

Kibou AR3

This is one of the best energy auto rifles in the game and might not be available in the upcoming DLC so you should get the weapon before Forsaken comes out. This weapon has the Dragonfly and Tactical Magazine or Armor-Piercing Rounds perks so you can imagine why it is on our list. You can get the gun by playing adventures in Warmind or from Ana Bray as a faction reward.

Positive Outlook

This auto rifle was first introduced in the Curse of Osiris DLC and has the Kill Clip perk that adds bonus damage when the player reloads after a kill. You should pick this up if you already don’t have this weapon.

Uriel’s Gift

This energy auto rifle is a fan favorite since the game came out and even if you have not got the DLCs you might have got this weapon. If not then this is something to get before Destiny 2 Forsaken DLC is released. You can get this weapon from the gunsmith. It comes with the Tap the Trigger and Steady Rounds perks.

Redrix’s Claymore

Redrix’s Claymore is a very popular weapon in the game and I am pretty sure that if you have been playing the game this long then you have already heard about it. Players can get this weapon by reaching the Fabled rank in crucible which is a hard thing to do, so you can imagine that getting this weapon is not that easy. But it is worth it


This sub-machine gun is also available at the gunsmith and might not be available when Destiny 2 Forsaken DLC comes out so you should get one before that. The weapon has the precision frame, kill clip, and tactical mag and is great for PVE and PVP. Keeping that in mind this is a must-have for Destiny 2 players.

Manannan SR4

This energy scout rifle features explosive payload, lightweight frame, and alloy magazine. It can melt shields pretty easily.

Curtain Call

This is one of the best launchers in is very popular in the raid because of the cluster bombs that do massive damage to mini-bosses and can clear loads of enemies in a single shot. This is a must-have if you do not already have it.

Furthermore, Cayde’s Spicy Ramen Secret Mission will pay respect to the fallen guardian. For more information regarding the game, stay tuned to SegmentNext.
