What are the Best Warlock PvP Weapons?


Getting solid and godly weapons and then using them in the Crucible to test them against other Guardians keeps many Destiny 2 players interested in this popular looter-shooter.This article will cover what are the best PvP weapons for warlocks and the rolls you should farm to be practically unbeatable against other Guardians in PvP activities.

The Destiny 2 meta is constantly changing because so many different weapons are available, and Season of Plunder is no exception. There is always something new and exciting to try out in PvP, thanks to Bungie's sandbox updates, seasonal artifact mods, and new weapon releases.


10. Main Ingredient (Best PvP Fusion Rifle)

"Now stir the sauce…."

In Destiny 2, the Main Ingredient is one of the top fusion rifles for PvP. During their peak, fusion rifles were a nightmare in PvP because they could map you from a reasonable distance and had a bizarre recoil pattern. This weapon isn't utilized in PvP as frequently as it once was because of recent nerfs, but it still has some potential and might be a strong contender for the greatest weapon to use when engaging in PvP activities.

PvP God roll:

Barrel: Red Dot Micro

Magazine: Particle Repeater

Perk 1: Firmly Planted

Perk 2: Tap The Trigger

Main Ingredient Stats

  • Impact: 80
  • Range: 59
  • Stability: 35
  • Handling: 31
  • Reload Speed: 24
  • Reload Time: 2.58 seconds
  • Aim Assistance: 45
  • Inventory Size: 40
  • Zoom: 15
  • Recoil: 73
  • Bounce Intensity: 27
  • Rounds Per Minute: 780
  • Magazine: 5

How to get it:: 

Obtaining a Main Ingredient Fusion Rifle is quite simple. You must wait till Xur sells it. After the weekly reset, the illusive seller arrives every Friday and departs on Tuesday. For those who don't know, Xur used to only focus on exotic gear and weaponry. The seller now provides a variety of legendary items as well, and this past weekend they offered a Main Ingredient god roll.


9. Lorentz Driver (Best PvP Linear Fusion Rifle)

"Weapon system no longer explodes when trigger is pulled." —Prototype 7.2.1 Revision Notes

While sniper rifles are a constant threat in The Crucible, there's no doubt that the Lorentz Driver is one of Destiny 2's top long-range weapons for PvP. It's absurd that a headshot instantly kills a Guardian and causes a dangerous vortex to form around their location.

Although Cloudstrike might provide a comparable result, Lorentz's interference with nearby players is far more severe. The advantage of pre-charging around corners is another one. Anyone who might hear a Lorentz Driver charge up a shot hesitates before sticking their head out.

The Langrian Sight, which also identifies targets, is another option. Some people ask for yet another nerf to this beast of a Linear Fusion because it is highly effective.

Exotic Perks:

Lagrangian Sight

This weapon marks targets with an automated targeting system. Final blows on marked targets generate a telemetry pattern. Collecting three telemetry patterns without dying grants this weapon bonus damage for a long duration.

EM Anomaly

A precision final blow with this weapon creates an implosion that pulls in nearby targets and damages them with an additional detonation.

Lorentz Driver Stats

  • Impact: 41
  • Range: 38
  • Stability: 47
  • Handling: 25
  • Reload Speed: 28
  • Reload Time: 2.55 seconds
  • Aim Assistance: 22
  • Inventory Size: 35
  • Zoom: 25
  • Recoil: 79
  • Bounce Intensity: 21
  • Charge Time: 533
  • Magazine: 6

How to get it: 

In Destiny 2, you can get it from the Monument to lost lights.


8. Le Monarque (Best PvP Bow)

"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 remains lethal in PvP after several nerfs. Its ability to keep opponents out of firefights for much longer than anticipated makes it great. A single precision strike can no longer kill low Resilience Guardians, but a Single shot will bring most Guardians to a health gate where a second shot can finish them off.

It implies that anyone hit by a poison arrow will flee and wait patiently for the damage to diminish before recovering, giving your other teammates the option to pursue them or concentrate on more important targets.

Exotic Perk:

Arrows fired quickly after a full draw become poison arrows. Precision hits with poison arrows stun the combatant and spread poison to nearby ones. Strong against [Disruption] Overload Champions.

Le Monarque Stats

  • Impact: 76
  • Accuracy: 73
  • Stability: 46
  • Handling: 54
  • Reload Speed: 40

  • Zoom: 18
  • Recoil: 78
  • Bounce Intensity: 22
  • Draw Time: 684

How to get it:: 

The Black Armory in Forsaken used to drop Le Monarque. However, that content has since been vaulted. With the inclusion of the Monument of Lost Lights, obtaining the Bow has become much more straightforward. This Kiosk, which is accessible from The Tower, is filled with numerous exotics that were related to earlier content. Only players who have the Forsaken DLC can purchase Le Monarque.


7. Piece of Mind (Best PvP Pulse Rifle)

This pulse rifle was introduced as one of the seasonal weapons in season 16 and is much more than it first appears to be. Due to its powerful Land Tank Origin Trait, which increases Resilience, Piece of Mind has even received a lot of love in PvP when entirely crafted and leveled.

For the first Enhanced Perk column, Heating Up is a necessity. Players can choose Moving Target for the second option, but more exciting opportunities, such as Vorpal Weapon, can be helpful in PvP.

Piece of Mind Stats

You must unlock the pattern for crafting by completing 5 Deepsight Resonance extractions from this weapon.


6. Jade Rabbit (Best PvP Scout Rifle)

"What kind of harebrained scheme have you got in mind this time?"

Whenever there is a Trials of Osiris week, the most "efficient" weapons rise to the top of the rankings. This time, that weapon is the Jade Rabbit, a scout rifle that has mostly gone unnoticed but has recently become quite potent due to several buffs working together.

The Jade Rabbit has been around for a while, but thanks to the Season of Plunder scout rifle buff, it's worth digging up from your vault.

Chaining body shots will allow you to deal additional damage on your subsequent accurate shot thanks to its unique perk, "The Fate of All Fools." If you pepper a few opponents in PvP, you can quickly rip them apart.

Jade Rabbit Stats

  • Impact: 67
  • Range: 80
  • Stability: 40
  • Handling: 21

5. Riiswalker (Best PvP Shotgun)

"No. I will not allow a Fallen to fight in the Banner, that right is reserved for Guardians alone. But if you insist, I may allow a Guardian to carry a Fallen-forged weapon into battle. You are a weaponsmith, are you not?" —Lord Saladin to an Unknown Eliksni

In Destiny's Crucible, shotguns are a trademark due to their superior close-range performance. There are powerful and weak shotguns, like most other weapons in the game.

You will unquestionably become a Crucible force to be reckoned with if you receive a Riiswalker god roll in Destiny 2. You can extend the range of this beast to OG Destiny 1 Shot Package levels of nastiness with the right combination of perks

By completing the third stage of the Iron Banner quest, winning Iron Banner matches, or exchanging Iron Banner tokens for packages, you can obtain Riiswalker.


4. The Messenger (Adept) (Best PvP Trials Pulse Rifle)

The bearer of bad news.

Nothing is more exquisite than a pulse rifle with the Desperado perk. Desperado, which debuted with the renowned pulse rifles Redrix Claymore and Broadsword, is the first pinnacle perk in Destiny 2. This perk is just as lethal now that it can roll with The Messenger pulse rifle. Desperado received some nerfs in season 17, but it is still worthwhile to grind.

The most significant roll for this gun is undoubtedly Rapid Hit and Desperado, but it can also roll with Killing Wind and Kill Clip for a more aggressive playstyle. The Messenger's stat package is sufficiently strong to defeat most Kinetic Pulses, regardless of any adept perks you add.

(Note: The adept versions of the weapons and adept mods can only be obtained by going flawless and opening the chest on the lighthouse.)


3. Beloved (Best PvP Sniper Rifle)

Beloved, the renowned sniper rifle from the Season of Opulence, is back in season 17, and you can craft this weapon with Enhanced Perks. This sniper rifle is a must-have for anyone who enjoys playing snipers in the Crucible, though it will require some hard grinding and favorable RNG to unlock.

2. Austringer (Best PvP Hand Canon)

Austringer returned in season 17 as a weapon you can craft with enhanced perks. Some claim that this hand cannon, when equipped with enhanced perks, might even outperform the infamous Eyasluna, but in the end, it all comes down to preference and playstyle.

Outlaw and Rangefinder are two essential perks for Austringer. Despite this, some players prefer an aggressive playstyle and may choose a game like Eye of the Storm. Players should craft this monstrous hand cannon, especially those who take PVP seriously.
