[Top 10] Destiny 2 Best Void Weapons That Are Powerful (Ranked)

Destiny 2 Best Void Weapons

In Destiny 2, "void" is one of three kinds of elemental damage, along with solar and arc. Furthermore, each weapon type has various archetypes with distinct stats and benefits to suit different play styles and tastes. Some weapons may have intrinsic perks that increase their void damage output or provide additional benefits linked to the Void subclass powers.

Using void weapons strategically can be particularly effective against enemies with void shields or vulnerabilities to void damage, making them an essential part of a Guardian's arsenal in Destiny 2 activities such as strikes, raids, and Crucible matches.

What are the best Void Weapons in Destiny 2?

Bungie continually introduces new void weapons into the game each season, making it challenging to determine the absolute best among them. However, here's a curated list of the top 10 void weapons currently available.

10. Doom Of Chelchis 

"Where is the Great Machine? Where is the Great Machine?" —Chelchis, Kell of Stone

Regarding Void scout rifles, two prominent contenders stand out: Aisha's Embrace and Doom of Chelchis. Obtaining these weapons isn't straightforward, with Aisha's Embrace now unavailable in the Trials of Osiris loot pool and Doom of Chelchis exclusive to the King's Fall raid, for those fortunate enough to have the chance, acquiring the Harrowed version of Doom of Chelchis from the Master difficulty King's Fall raid is highly recommended. 

This variant offers a combination of perks suitable for PvP and PvE engagements. However, perks like Firefly or Explosive Payload in the first column are almost essential for PvE activities, greatly enhancing the rifle's effectiveness in dealing with enemy hordes and delivering impactful precision shots.

This legendary scout rifle is known to drop from various encounters throughout the raid, including the Entrance, Totems, Golgoroth, Deathsingers, and Oryx encounters.


9. Exalted Truth

"It's the end of the world. We don't have another choice." —Ikora Rey

The Exalted Truth void hand cannon in Destiny 2 is a recent addition with excellent stats and perk combinations explicitly designed for PvP combat. Thanks to its outstanding stability and handling, it immediately became a preferred choice for competitive encounters. Its main feature, SUROS Synergy, sets it apart by significantly improving handling and eliminating flinching after reloading.

While getting it may be difficult, once you have it, this hand cannon can boost your performance in PvP clashes, allowing you to display dominance over other players in Crucible.

8. Collective Obligation 

"What The Witness gave me, I give to you. May it serve you in death, or in finality. It cannot be both." —Rhulk, disciple of the Witness

Collective Obligation, the raid Exotic from Vow of the Disciple, continues to be somewhat overlooked by the Destiny 2 community. However, it received significant buffs during Season of the Plunder, elevating it to a formidable choice for void builds, especially among Void Hunters.

One of its standout features is its ability to store Void Leech, which, when activated, debuffs targets. This newfound functionality essentially positions Collective Obligation as a substitute for Divinity as a weakening weapon. Moreover, it shines as a primary weapon capable of dealing substantial damage, particularly with the Void 3.0 update.

Exotic Perk: 

This weapon leeches Void debuffs when damaging targets that are suppressed, weakened, or volatile. Once charged, [Alternate Weapon Action] will be used to swap firing modes. In this mode, damage from this weapon applies the same Void debuffs that were leeched.

Collective Obligation Stats

  • Impact: 29
  • Range: 49
  • Stability: 55
  • Handling: 41
  • Reload Speed: 41
  • Reload Time: 2.24 seconds

  • Inventory Size: 58
  • Zoom: 17
  • Airborne Effectiveness: 26
  • Recoil: 76
  • Rounds Per Minute: 390
  • Magazine: 36

How to get The Collective Obligation

To obtain Collective Obligation in Destiny 2, players must complete the Vow of the Disciple raid. This raid Exotic drops exclusively from the final boss, Rhulk. However, it's important to note that acquiring this weapon is subject to random chance and depends entirely on RNG. 


7. The Hero’s Burden 

Forged in honor of Saladin, of all that has been lost and all that remains.

The Hero’s Burden, an Adaptive Frame Submachine Gun from Iron Banner, has undergone several perk updates. However, the Season of Defiance introduced a significant refresh, granting it a brand-new perk known as Destabilizing Rounds.

Destabilizing Rounds have the unique effect of causing nearby targets to become volatile upon kills. This bestows the wielder with volatile rounds without necessitating them to be on a Void subclass. Additionally, if the user is on a Void subclass, it further enhances their void builds, amplifying their effectiveness in combat scenarios.

The Hero’s Burden Stats

  • Impact: 20
  • Range: 44
  • Stability: 40
  • Handling: 59
  • Reload Speed: 53

  • Perk 2:  Repulsor Brace 

How to get The Hero’s Burden

6. Taipan-4FR 

My will dissolves those who oppose it.

Linear Fusion Rifles have emerged as the go-to choice for boss damage in the current meta, dominating activities like GM Nightfalls and raids. While many LFRs are challenging to obtain, often requiring raid or Trials of Osiris participation, Taipan stands out as an exception. By completing a brief Enclave quest, players can unlock the ability to craft Taipan-4FR, offering a solid DPS option. 

Sporting the same notable perk combination as its Stasis counterpart, Reed's Regret, Taipan combines Triple Tap and Firing Line, an S-tier combination for endgame PvE content. This allows players to unleash massive damage while occasionally benefiting from partial reloads courtesy of Veist Stinger, the weapon's origin trait.

Taipan-4FR Stats

  • Impact: 41
  • Range: 48
  • Stability: 43
  • Handling: 36
  • Reload Speed: 29
  • Reload Time: 2.53 seconds
  • Aim Assistance: 64
  • Inventory Size: 33
  • Zoom: 25
  • Recoil: 69
  • Bounce Intensity: 31
  • Rounds Per Minute: 553
  • Magazine: 5

PvE God roll:

  • Barrel: Arrowhead Brake
  • Battery: Liquid Coils or Enhanced Battery

This means that every activity capable of rewarding random Legendary weapons, such as Strikes, Lost Sectors, and Crucible matches, provides the opportunity to obtain this Linear Fusion Rifle, albeit with a random combination of perks. 


5. Le Monarque 

"Wings flutter. Beauty distracts. Poison injects. The butterfly's curse extends to your enemies. A short life, shortened further by your hand." —Ada-1

Le Monarque, an Exotic precision-frame Bow, has Snapshot Sights and the unique feature of Poison Arrows. It's a leading contender for endgame challenges thanks to its ability to shoot toxic arrows that cause a poisonous spray when conditions are right. These deadly clouds can be generated with great accuracy and timing, causing substantial damage. 

In PvE situations, Le Monarque is very effective against Overload Champions and majors. Combined with Volatile Rounds, it becomes an effective weapon in Match Game activities, capable of eliminating Champions. 

Exotic Perk:

"Arrows fired quickly after a full draw become poison arrows. Precision hits with poison arrows spread poison to nearby enemies. Strong against Overload Champions"

4. Leviathan's Breath 

"Cast a Shadow over the wilds of this universe. Return with glorious trophies." —Emperor Calus.

Leviathan's Breath is the only bow in Destiny 2 that uses heavy ammo, having been added as a seasonal weapon during the Season of the Undying event. Despite its impressive damage potential, the long draw time initially limited its efficacy. However, with the revised catalyst following the Lightfall DLC, which offers an improved version of Archer's Tempo, this weapon saw a huge alteration, particularly in PvE encounters.

With the release of Void 3.0, volatile rounds become a fixture in almost every activity. Leviathan's Breath emerged as an excellent alternative for endgame content, perfectly combining with ad-clearing void builds.

Exotic Perk:

"Fires a massive heavy bolt that stuns unshielded combatants. Strong against Unstoppable Champions. When fully drawn, the bolt creates a large concussive blast that knocks combatants back."

3. Falling Guillotine 

What won't be given must be taken.

Falling Guillotine is one of Destiny 2's most powerful Legendary Swords. Its stunning Vortex Frame design ranged perks, and strong stats solidify it as a top-tier option. Since Season 11, Falling Guillotine has transformed the meta, not only for its performance but also for its stylish neon-lit blades.

Whirlwind Blade, the sought-after trait, is essential to Falling Guillotine's effectiveness. When coupled with Relentless Strikes, the sword becomes a deadly weapon capable of quickly defeating raid or dungeon bosses with accuracy and efficacy.

2. Graviton Lance

Think of space-time as a tapestry on a loom. This weapon is the needle.

Graviton Lance received a massive transformation in Season of the Deep, including a considerable increase in fire rate and an astonishing 67% damage boost. This change quickly transformed Graviton Lance into a two-burst powerhouse capable of annihilating whole waves of enemies, even in the most difficult Grandmaster difficulty encounters.

Graviton Lance is the most effective add-clearing Exotic for Void subclasses. Its unique firing mechanism fires bursts that cause massive explosions upon enemy death, generating nova bomblets that set off a chain reaction of devastation.

Shallow graves give way to old vendettas and hungry claims.

Warlord's Ruin, the latest dungeon introduced in Season of the Wish, allows players to obtain its coveted Exotic drop, Buried Bloodline, if luck is on their side. This Sidearm stands out for its unprecedented archetype and has swiftly become a staple in the Destiny 2 meta. 

Despite being a sidearm, it offers two compelling effects that cater to fans of Void weaponry: health leeching from enemies and triggering Devour upon swiftly dispatching foes with final blows.
