What are the best weapons for King’s Fall in Destiny 2?


King's Fall raid is back in Destiny 2, fulfilling one of the Guardians' most ardent requests. It is one of the Destiny 2 player's longest and most challenging activities. It is teeming with powerful rewards, exotic weapons, and sophisticated mechanics.Let’s discuss what are the best weapons for King’s Fall in Destiny 2 that you can farm for, from shattering Fusion Rifles to adaptable pulse rifles.

While Destiny 2 may lack huge raiding parties, it does have a good selection of valuable weaponry for players to hunt down. In recent expansions, raid weapons have grown increasingly coveted, coming with some of the most remarkable perk combos we've seen on Legendaries. 


10. Reed’s Regret (Best for Boss Damage)

"Trust me." —Savathûn as Osiris

In Season of the Lost, linear fusion rifles established themselves as a dominant DPS option, and they continue to do so today. They still outclass any DPS weapon in the game, even without the DPS artifact mods like Particle Deconstruction. It is a great choice for all boss encounters of King’s Fall raid as you want to melt that final boss as quickly as possible.

So what makes Reed's Regret unique is that It was the first linear fusion rifle to roll with the triple tap, considered the strongest DPS perk ever. You can combine that with the firing line to become your fire team's DPS god. If you are a devoted PvE Player, this weapon is a must.

PvE God roll:

Barrel: Arrowhead Brake

Battery: Liquid Coils or Enhanced Battery

Perk 1: Triple Tap

Perk 2: Vorpal Weapon or Firing Line

9. Izanagi’s Burden (Best for Boss Damage)

"Shame. Guilt. Fear. We all bear them. Gather your regrets, purge them as best you can. Let your enemies feel the weight of your burdens." —Ada-1

Izanagi's Burden is one of the greatest snipers for boss damage and end-game events like raids and grandmaster nightfalls. Because of an exotic perk, this sniper can fire four shots at once while holding down the reload button, dealing the same amount of damage. 

The ease of usage of this weapon is not quite there because it requires accuracy and technique to be effective. It is the finest option for damage, though, if you can use it as well as possible.

"Some things should not be saved." —Techeun Sedia

Rapid-Fire Pulse Rifles are now very popular in PvP and PvE. They fire quickly, blasting your opponents to the sky, and are simple. Horror's Least combines the best parts of Rapid-Fire Pulses. If you like Pulses, you should keep an eye out for this rifle.

The most significant perk of Horror’s Least is Kill Clip, reducing this weapon’s TTK in the Crucible. Kill Clip allows this weapon to quickly clear fodder ads in PvE. When combined with Steady Hands, your gun will have maximum handling when firing high-damage shots. Horror’s Least will make excellent use of any exotic weapon perks introduced in Arc 3.0. It is perfect for controlling ads in King's Fall raid encounters.

7. Xenophage (Best for Ads Control)

This might sting a little.

Xenophage is the best machine gun specifically for invading in Gambit. It is a rare Machine Gun with high-impact damage that first appeared in Season 8. It has since earned a good reputation in the community. Although it is an exotic weapon with solar damage to opponents, it also has some additional benefits that make it a good choice. This weapon resembles a heavy rocket launcher with numerous tiny rocket shells.

Xenophage has gone through many ups and downs. Unnecessary modifications turned it into a farce, and the weapon remained that way for a long time. However, now that Xenophage has been restored to its former glory, it is once again an excellent PvE weapon that never disappoints.  You can use it to control yellow bars and powerful enemies in King’s Fall.

Exotic Perks:

Pyrotoxin Rounds

Fires high-powered explosive ammunition.


Aiming this weapon increases its effective range and zoom magnification. Increased projectile velocity while aiming Rocket Launchers, Grenade Launchers, and Bows.

6. Insidious (Best for Ads Control)

Shape: Deception

Insidious is a weapon only available in the Vow of the Disciple raid. This Arc pulse rifle may be the next best thing when Season 18 and Arc 3.0 arrive, so it's highly suggested that players obtain it to ensure they have at least one Arc weapon that accepts primary ammo.

Although pulse rifles are more commonly used in PvP, there's no doubt that this dad rifle's slow and steady beat makes it one of the most enjoyable and valuable pulse rifles to employ in PvE. You can effectively concentrate on tiny waves of foes to increase your damage for a generous period by combining Dragonfly and One For All's enhanced traits. The enemies will start to drop like flies after the first headshot that kills.

PvE God roll: 

Barrel: Arrowhead Brake

Magazine: Appended Mag

After the Caretaker and Rhulk encounters, reward chests also contain a chance to receive the Insidious weapon pattern.


5. Thunderlord (Best for Ads Control)

They return from fields afar. The eye has passed, the end nears. Do not fade quietly. Let thunder reign again.

Thunderlord still reigns supreme in the machine gun weapon category, thanks to its lightning-quick ability to clear ads with lightning bolts from the sky (it is also super cool, which nets it bonus points). When it comes to heavy weapons, it is still the undisputed king of machine guns, and with its increasing fire rate, as you hold the trigger down, it becomes helpful in mounting damage on yellow-bar enemies.

Calibrate reality. Seek inevitability. Embody divinity.

Divinity trace rifle is still one of the game's most powerful and distinctive weapons. After holding its beam over ads for a few seconds, the Exotic perk locks them in an arc bubble, stunning Overload champions and weakening other enemies.

Divinity is helpful for boss fights and other team-based activities because shooting this cage deals additional damage, especially when compared to a headshot. Divinity is versatile, powerful, and a must-have for any PvE activities involving bosses, particularly Raids.

3. Gjallarhorn (Best for Ads Control)

“If there is beauty in destruction, why not also in its delivery?” — Feizel Crux

There is no better way to manage the ads in end-game activities like raids than a fire team with Gjallarhorn. The exotic perk revamp of this renowned weapon was terrific because, in Destiny 1's early days, six Gjallarhorns were undoubtedly the finest DPS weapon. 

The new perk gives teammates utilizing a legendary rocket with an auto-loading holster a significant boost because they obtain the damage advantages of wolfpack rounds and the reload advantages of the auto-loading holster.

2.  Taipan-4FR (Best for Boss Damage)

My will dissolves those who oppose it.

The Taipan-4FR is Destiny 2's unquestioned champion for boss DPS and ammunition efficiency.

You'll discover that the 20% damage boost is fantastic for a group of two or more.
