Destiny 2: All 17 Season of the Plunder Weapons

With every season in Destiny 2, we get a new suite of weapons to try out. This season, called Season of the Plunder, has some great new options. In this article, we’ll cover all the new Season of the Plunder weapons, from seasonal options to new world drops.

Let’s get started!

Season of the Plunder Weapons Explained

To keep things simple, we’ll organize the list in categories. Note that we won’t be covering the King’s Fall or new Iron Banner/Trials weapon, as those deserve separate attention.

We’ll also include either the PVE or PVP god roll (or sometimes both), depending on what the weapon’s main use is. We won’t offer PVP god rolls for a weapon that would only be used in PVE, and vice versa.

Exotic Weapons and Ritual Weapon

There are only two new Exotic weapons this season, not including the one from the new raid. There’s also a new ritual weapon, as always, so let’s take a look at all three!

1. Delicate Tomb

Delicate Tomb is this season’s Season Pass Exotic, and it’s one of the most interesting we’ve gotten in a while. It has a unique perk that allows it to fire differently based on if you’re aiming down sights or not (sort of like Duality has). Shooting from the hip fires a horizontal spray, while aiming down sights fires a more precise shot.

It’s also a great weapon for Ionic Traces builds. Landing final blows with it creates them, and one of its perks allows you to jolt targets after picking one up. It’s a really interesting weapon, and while it might not be super meta, it’s definitely got some niche uses, if nothing else.

How to get Delicate Tomb: Purchase the Season 18 season pass or progress to Level 35 in the free version of the pass.

Perks (pre-determined):

  • Fluted Barrel
  • Liquid Coils
  • Tempest Cascade
  • Short-Action Stock

2. Quicksilver Storm

Quicksilver Storm is available as a pre-order bonus for those who purchase the deluxe version of the upcoming Lightfall expansion. It’s a very unique Auto Rifle that is able to fire grenades and mini-rockets, and it also looks cool. It’s one of the more interesting Exotics made lately, and it feels really fluid to use. If you were thinking about pre-ordering the deluxe version of Lightfall already, this is a great incentive to do so early.

How to get Quicksilver Storm: Pre-order the deluxe version of the Lightfall expansion.

Perks (pre-determined):

  • Corkscrew Rifling
  • High-Caliber Rounds
  • Grenade Chaser
  • Hand-Laid Stock

3. Cry Mutiny (Ritual Weapon)

Cry Mutiny is this season’s ritual weapon, which means you have to play a lot of either Vanguard, Crucible, or Gambit to receive it as a reward from either Zavala, Shaxx, or Drifter. Unfortunately, it’s a Heavy Grenade Launcher this season, which means it doesn’t really have a place in the meta right now. It can be a fun weapon to use in lower-tier activities, but it has little to offer outside of that. It does have really great visual design, though.

How to get Cry Mutiny: Reward from either Commander Zavala, Lord Shaxx, or the Drifter.

Perks (pre-determined):

  • Swashbuckler or Vorpal Weapon
  • Incandescent or Demolitionist
  • Mini Frags
  • Volatile Launch

Seasonal Weapons

This season’s seasonal weapons are, as usual, tied to new seasonal activities. You can get these weapons by playing Ketchcrash or Expedition. An interesting note about these weapons is that they have some really cool perk combinations for melee builds, since their origin trait rewards melee attacking.

Make sure to keep a look out for that if you’re someone who loves to melee. Also, all of these weapons are craftable as well!

4. Tarnished Mettle (Scout Rifle)

Tarnished Mettle is an Arc energy Scout rifle with some really great perk combinations. Explosive Payload and Rapid Hit is a perfect combination for endgame content, while Joltshot and Fourth Time’s the Charm are solid alternative picks. It can also get Demolitionist, which could be good depending on your build.

PVE God Roll:

  • Explosive Payload or Voltshot
  • Rapid Hit, Fourth Time’s the Charm, or Demolitionist
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Arrowhead Break, Chambered Compensator, or Corkscrew Rifling

5. Sailspy Pitchglass (Linear Fusion Rifle)

Sailspy is an interesting LFR because it can get the Voltshot perk. This is a perk that certainly isn’t going to be useful in every single situation, but I could see it being a fun, niche pick. Its best perks for a typical build are easily Vorpal Weapon and Clown Cartridge, but it has room for experimentation if you aren’t one for meta builds.

PVE God Roll:

  • Vorpal Weapon or Joltshot (for specific builds)
  • Clown Cartridge or Rapid Hit
  • Accelerated Coils or Enhanced Battery
  • Arrowhead Break, Chambered Compensator, or Corkscrew Rifling

6. Brigand’s Law (Sidearm)

Brigand's Law (Sidearm) - Destiny 2: Season of the Plunder Weapons

Brigand’s Law is a rapid-fire frame Sidearm with awesome perks. It’s probably the best weapon for the new Voltshot perk right now, which is really strong when optimized. It can also get the Pugilist/Swashbuckler combo, which is great for melee builds.

PVE God Roll:

  • Voltshot or Swashbuckler
  • Pugilist or Feeding Frenzy
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Arrowhead Break, Corkscrew Rifling, or Chambered Compensator

PVP God Roll:

  • Rangefinder or Voltshot (potentially)
  • Perpetual Motion
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Arrowhead Break, Corkscrew Rifling, or Chambered Compensator

7. No Reprieve (Shotgun)

No Reprieve (Shotgun) - Destiny 2: Season of the Plunder Weapons

This shotgun is honestly pretty solid, especially if you intend to utilize its melee-oriented God Roll. It’s a slug shotgun, so it could be really good for boss DPS in certain activities as well. If you’re looking for a fun PVE shotgun, this could be the one for you.

PVE God Roll:

  • Swashbuckler
  • Pugilist
  • Assault Mag
  • Arrowhead Break, Corkscrew Rifling, or Chambered Compensator

8. Blood Feud (SMG)

Blood Feud isn’t the most spectacular SMG, but it’s far from terrible. It can also get the Swashbuckler/Pugilist combo for melee builds, but it doesn’t do a whole lot outside of that. It does have Frenzy as an option, which is great, and Headstone is good in specific builds.

PVE God Roll:

  • Frenzy, Swashbuckler, or Headstone
  • Pugilist or Ambitious Assassin
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Arrowhead Break, Corkscrew Rifling, or Chambered Compensator

9. Planck’s Stride (Machine Gun)

Planck’s Stride isn’t all that special, but it is a fun weapon to use. It’s not one you’ll probably want in endgame content, but for easier activities where your goal is to get done quick or just have fun, it can be great. Pugilist and Swashbuckler are both great perks, but on this weapon, you can unfortunately only have one.

PVE God Roll:

  • Swashbuckler or Pugilist
  • Grave Robber or Killing Wind
  • Accurized Rounds or Appended Mag
  • Arrowhead Break, Corkscrew Rifling, or Chambered Compensator

Other New Weapons in Season of the Plunder

In addition to the seasonal and Exotic weapons, there are a whole bunch of other weapons added into the game. These can be anything from Gambit drops to general world drop weapons, so it should be a diverse list!

10. Taipan-4FR (Linear Fusion Rifle)

Taipan-4FR (Linear Fusion Rifle)

Taipan-4FR is one of the best weapons in the game right now. It’s given as a free reward for progressing the Foundry Resonance quest at the Enclave on Savathun’s Throne World, so there’s no reason not to grab one. The god roll of this LFR is equal to, or perhaps better, than any other LFR in the game, so go grab one if you need a solid DPS weapon.

Where to Get Taipan-4FR: Foundry Resonance quest or World Drops. (Craftable)

PVE God Roll:

  • Firing Line or Frenzy
  • Triple Tap or Clown Cartridge
  • Enhanced Battery
  • Arrowhead Break

11. Pure Poetry (Hand Cannon)

Pure Poetry is a fairly bland Hand Cannon with decent perks. Really, the only reason you would want one of these is if you just like the way the weapon feels. If you do, then you could get some use out of it, but otherwise, it’s not too important.

Where to Get Pure Poetry: Strikes.

PVE God Roll:

  • Rampage or Frenzy
  • Outlaw or Fourth Time’s the Charm
  • Extended Mag, Alloy Magazine, or Appended Mag
  • Arrowhead Break, Corkscrew Rifling, or Chambered Compensator

PVP God Roll:

  • Rampage or Opening Shot
  • Perpetual Motion or Outlaw
  • Extended Mag, Alloy Magazine, or Appended Mag
  • Arrowhead Break, Corkscrew Rifling, or Chambered Compensator

12. Boudica-C (Sidearm)

Boudica-C is another fairly underwhelming new weapon. It’s a pretty decent Sidearm for PVP, but there’s no reason to use it over any other sidearm. Its purpose is simply to be a decent sidearm for new players who might not have any other ones, but it doesn’t have many uses outside of that. On the other hand, it does look and feel great, so it might be worth getting for that reason alone.

Where to Get Boudica-C: World Drops.

PVE God Roll:

  • Frenzy or Swashbuckler
  • Pugilist or Ambitious Assassin
  • Extended Mag, Armor-Piercing Rounds, or Appended Mag
  • Arrowhead Break, Corkscrew Rifling, or Chambered Compensator

PVP God Roll:

  • Gunshot Straight
  • Moving Target, Hip-Fire Grip, or Pugilist
  • High Caliber Rounds, Ricochet Rounds, or Armor-Piercing Rounds
  • Fluted Barrel, Arrowhead Break, or Corkscrew Rifling

13. Pizzicato-22 (SMG)

The Pizzicato-22 is another decent weapon that doesn’t do anything too special. It’s a solid SMG with a nice variety of perks, but it’s still outclassed by other SMGs. If you like the way the weapon feels, then it’s worth getting, but it’s not something you should prioritize.

Where to Get Pizzicato-22: World Drops.

PVE God Roll:

  • Multikill Clip, Pugilist, or Demolitionist
  • Ambitious Assassin or Perpetual Motion
  • Ricochet Rounds, Extended Mag, or Armor-Piercing Rounds
  • Corkscrew Rifling, Arrowhead Break, or Chambered Compensator

PVP God Roll:

  • Rangefinder
  • Perpetual Motion or Hip-Fire Grip
  • Ricochet Rounds, Extended Mag, or Armor-Piercing Rounds
  • Corkscrew Rifling, Arrowhead Break, or Chambered Compensator

14. Ammit AR2 (Auto Rifle)

Ammit AR2 is a really great Auto Rifle that’s already become a staple of many players’ loadouts. Since it’s craftable, it gets the benefit of enhanced perks on top of its already great perk pool. It’s really easy to get one, so I highly recommend crafting one of these.

Where to get Ammit AR2: Foundry Resonance quest at the Enclave or World Drops. (Craftable)

PVE God Roll:

  • Incandescent or Adaptive Munitions
  • Stats for All, Ambitious Assassin, or Triple Tap
  • Extended Mag, Appended Mag, or Ricochet Rounds
  • Corkscrew Rifling, Arrowhead Break, or Chambered Compensator

15. Yesteryear (Pulse Rifle)

Yesteryear (Pulse Rifle)

Yesteryear is this season’s new Gambit weapon, and it’s a great one! It’s very similar to the Trials weapon, The Messanger, as both are Pulse Rifles that can roll with Desperado and Outlaw. Yesteryear is a welcome addition to the game, as it’s a great Pulse Rifle that’s much easier to obtain than some similar weapons.

Where to get Yesteryear: Gambit.

PVE God Roll:

  • Desperado, Rampage, or Dragonfly
  • Subsistence or Outlaw
  • Extended Mag, Ricochet Rounds, or Armor-Piercing Rounds
  • Arrowhead Break, Chambered Compensator, or Corkscrew Rifling

PVP God Roll:

  • Desperado
  • Outlaw or Perpetual Motion
  • Ricochet Rounds, Armor-Piercing Rounds, or High-Caliber Rounds
  • Arrowhead Break, Chambered Compensator, or Corkscrew Rifling

16. Mindbender’s Ambition (Shotgun)

Mindbender's Ambition (Shotgun) - Destiny 2: Season of the Plunder Weapons

Mindbender’s Ambition is a fairly sub-par shotgun that’s new to the Vanguard drop pool. It’s perks are pretty average and it feels okay, but there’s nothing to write home about here. If you get one while playing Strikes, it might be worth keeping one if you get a good roll, but it’s unlikely to be a frequently used weapon.

Where to get Mindbender’s Ambition: Vanguard.

PVE God Roll:

  • Incandescence or One-Two Punch
  • Auto-Loading Holster
  • Assault Mag or Accurized Rounds
  • Rifled Barrel, Smoothbore, or Smallbore

PVP God Roll:

  • Fragile Focus or Incandescence
  • Snapshot Sights or Slideways
  • Assault Mag or Accurized Rounds
  • Rifled Barrel, Smoothbore, or Smallbore

17. Out of Bounds (SMG)

Out of Bounds (SMG) - Destiny 2: Season of the Plunder Weapons

Out of Bounds is a pretty good new SMG in the Crucible playlist that has a nice variety of perks. Golden Tricorn and Swashbuckler are both great for PVE, while Rangefinder and Kill Clip are amongst the best for PVP. It might not be the best SMG in the game, but it’s definitely a good one worth picking up, especially if you play a lot of Crucible already.

Where to get Out of Bounds: Crucible.

PVE God Roll:

  • Golden Tricorn or Swashbuckler
  • Subsistence or Demolitionist
  • Ricochet Rounds, Extended Mag, or Alloy Magazine
  • Arrowhead Break, Chambered Compensator, or Corkscrew Rifling

PVP God Roll:

  • Rangefinder or Kill Clip
  • Perpetual Motion or Moving Target
  • Ricochet Rounds, Extended Mag, or High-Caliber Rounds
  • Arrowhead Break, Chambered Compensator, or Corkscrew Rifling
