In Destiny 2’s PVE, Void guns go very well with Void 3.0. Here are the Void weapons that every Guardian’s safe needs to have.
Every season in Destiny 2, there are more and better elements and Void weapons. They go well with the Void 3.0 subclass, which came out with The Witch Queen’s first season, Season of the Risen. Thanks to a few outliers, they’re also some of the best guns in the game overall as of Season of the Seraph.
This list of the best Void weapons in Destiny 2 has everything from Exotic picks to Legendary weapons. PVE players who want a good selection of good Void weapons don’t need to look any further. Even though PVP hasn’t been taken into account much, and some repeat archetypes have been left off the list, it’s possible that this list will grow in the future as more weapons are added to the game with the upcoming Lightfall expansion.
Null Composure is an old seasonal weapon from back in the day. It is still one of the best fusion guns for PVE. Even though fusion guns haven’t really been part of the PVE meta since Season of the Lost, because they have good perks, this is still true.
With Reservoir Burst and Feeding Frenzy, it’s a nice Special weapon to add to a Void build, especially if players choose to run an Exotic or Legendary Kinetic main. If players missed it when it was a seasonal item, they can still get it from the Monument to Lost Lights.
The Veles-X is an old seasonal weapon that was already strong when it came out. Due to its Aggressive Frame, firing this pulse rifle might feel a little slow, but it’s a great addition to any PVE Void builds that need a pulse rifle to stun champions.
Repulsor Brace works well with Void builds in general because it gives Void overshield, and Golden Tricorn is a great way to make sure that the player gets some ability energy when using the weapon. Overall, these are both very strong PVE perks as of Season of the Deep, so it’s a good idea to grab the Veles-X from the Monument to Lost Lights just in case.
Even though Commemoration isn’t as powerful as another important Void machine gun mentioned below, it’s still one of the best things you can do in Destiny 2. One can be found in the Deep Stone Crypt raid, and it can be made after unlocking five patterns. Its Origin Trait, Bray Inheritance, gives back ability energy to players when Commemoration deals damage. This is great for the game’s meta, which is to spam abilities.
The best perks for this one are Reconstruction in the first slot so that you don’t have to reload your gun and Killing Tally in the second spot so that you get a small damage boost as you kill enemies.
Hollow Denial is no longer available, but it still deserves to be on this list. Who knows, Banshee-44 or Xur might sell it again in the future, so players should keep an eye out for it. Hollow Denial is very strong in a time when running two Special weapons with Lead from Gold is better than running a main weapon.
Lead from Gold and Repulsor Brace are the best two skills to use with this Void trace gun. It lets players have almost unlimited ammo if they use their heavy weapon to clear ads at the same rate. Repulsor Brace gives a nice Void Overshield, but Killing Tally is also a good choice for those who don’t want to use Void to weaken enemies.
Harsh Language is a Void wave frame that made a lot of waves in the Destiny 2 community during Season of Defiance. Harsh Language shows that wave frames are worth their weight in gold in general. It’s a very strong grenade launcher for a world drop, and it has some interesting perk choices.
Envious Assassin and Destabilizing Rounds make this weapon a very good tool for clearing ads, but Repulsor Brace is also a choice for players who want to use this weapon in a full Void build.
With the Lightfall update, a new raid called “Root of Nightmares” was added. It came with its own set of interesting weapons. Nessa’s Oblation is a surprising good choice among them, since shotguns are becoming more and more useful in PVE.
This Void shotgun has a Pinpoint Slug Frame, which means that it needs to be used with great accuracy. When it comes to perks, Reconstruction is a must-have for PVE so you don’t waste time reloading, and Destabilizing Rounds goes well with Void characters in general.
Le Monarque was a strong Exotic in PVP for a long time, but it has since lost some of its importance while PVE has gained some. One of the Exotics that was changed for Season of the Plunder was the Void bow, which now has a built-in perk that protects the champion from Overload.
The community has shown that pairing Le Monarque with an extra anti-Overload bow mod does more damage to the champion, so if Overload Bow comes back, Le Monarque is the best pick. Le Monarque does poison damage over time, which slows the target’s natural health recovery. This is why it used to be so powerful in PVP.
Auto guns might be coming back soon, and if there’s one worth getting, it’s the Gnawing Hunger, which Xur will sometimes sell from Friday to Monday. It’s one of the best automatic weapons in Happy Wheels because it feels good and doesn’t have a lot of spread or recoil.
It has a small but good pool of perks, so it shouldn’t be too hard to get good ones, even though it’s a rare weapon to get these days. Subsistence, Rampage, Demolitionist, and Swashbuckler are all very good choices for PVE, which is probably where Gnawing Hunger will be used the most.
Doom Of Chelchis
When it comes to Void scout guns, Aisha’s Embrace and Doom of Chelchis come to mind as two of the best. Both are hard to get. Aisha’s Embrace is no longer a drop from the Trials of Osiris, and Doom of Chelchis can only be found in the King’s Fall raid. But they are both amazing weapons with great bonuses, though the Doom of Chelchis’ bonuses are a little more interesting.
Try to get the Harrowed version of Doom of Chelchis from the Master King’s Fall raid if you have the chance. It has benefits for both PVP and PVE, but for PVE, you almost always need Firefly or Explosive Payload in the first column. Make sure to get it Harrowed, or unlock five patterns and make it yourself.
The Other Half
When it came to Void swords, The Other Half and Fallen Guillotine were once again two of the best. Both guns are a must-have for PVE fans, but The Other Half wins because of how much it has helped the Destiny 2 community with movement and speedrunning.
The only perk players need to look for with this weapon is “Eager Edge.” When players first switch to The Other Half and use main fire to attack, Eager Edge throws them a good distance away. Even after the changes that Bungie made to Eager Edge during Season of the Plunder, this makes scaling jumping tasks easy. To get this sword, players will need to open the treasure chest at Xur’s Treasure Hoard and farm it for The Other Half. Like the other Dares of Eternity weapons, it can now also be made.
Funnelweb is definitely the most famous Legendary weapon from the time of The Witch Queen update. Early in the Season of the Risen, this SMG, which looks simple, quickly became everyone’s favorite meta main weapon because it worked well with Volatile Flow and Void 3.0. The best part is that it’s still almost as good, and it’s so popular that people run it even when they’re not using the Void version.
It can be used in place of Unforgiven, the SMG from Duality, to some extent, but Funnelweb is easier for most players to get to and isn’t locked behind paid material. It can be found in engrams that say “Legendary.” For the best set of perks, players should look for Subsistence and Frenzy.
Collective Obligation is another exotic weapon. It is the raid exotic from Vow of the Disciple, and most people still don’t pay much attention to it. It got a lot of buffs during Season of the Plunder, making it a great choice for any Void build, but especially for Void Hunters.
Collective Obligation can store Void Leech, which removes buffs from targets when it is used. It can now take over Divinity’s job as a weapon that makes enemies weaker. It can also be used as a primary weapon that does a lot of damage and works well with Void 3.0. When put together with the Gyrlfacon’s Hauberk chest piece, hunters will love it.
So, what about the Void subclass’s raw DPS? Everyone agrees that Taipan-4FR is the best first choice. It only needs two patterns to be able to be made into a weapon, and as a linear fusion gun, it is very powerful.
The best perks for the Taipan-4FR are Firing Line and Triple Tap, but if players want to play solo, they should change Firing Line with Field Prep or Frenzy instead. Even though linear fusion rifles had their damage cut by 15%, the Taipan-4FR is still a very powerful choice for attack.
Retrofit Escapade is still one of the best Void guns in Destiny 2 by a long shot. It may not be as good as it was during Season of the Seraph, but after all the improvements to machine guns over the last year or so, it is still a very good DPS choice.
The best perks for this weapon are still Target Lock and Fourth Time’s the Charm, especially when it comes to dealing damage to bosses. Void Hunters will use it the most, since they can still avoid reloading the weapon to some extent, even though it’s not as amazing as when the weapon first came out for Season of the Seraph. Those who didn’t get this weapon may still have a chance that Banshee-44 or Xur will have it in their inventory one day.
