Destiny 2 Best Boss DPS Weapons


10. Falling Guillotine

 Use and Review:

 There is little doubt about how effective a good sword can be in battle. But when it comes to owning bosses in PVE there is little doubt of who dominates the field. Fallin Guillotine is a beast. Its special attack that sweeps in a circular arc, not only damages enemies it does devastating damage to them including bosses.

8. One Thousand Voices

Use and Review: 


This energy beam projection weapon is the Destiny 2 equivalent of easy like a Sunday morning. The beam of energy just melts boss health bars away. The only reason it does not rank higher up the list is the limited ammo, and the time it takes to reload. That being stated there is no way to go wrong here. Fire away, find cover, reload and repeat.

This boss killer for players that like to engage bosses at a distance. Sniper rifles have been a bane in PVE enemies since the first Destiny game.

3. Thunderlord

Review and Use:  

Oh, Thunderlord, the most underappreciated weapon in the PVE arsenal. Woe to those that have collected this weapon and let it sit in their weapons locker gathering dust. The weapons has a phenomenal rate of fire, damage, and when taking against bosses it melts their health bar like an ice-cream sitting under the noonday sun. It is possible many don’t like the fact that it runs through ammo quickly, even though the reload speed more than makes up for this drawback.
