Best Auto Rifles in Destiny 2
Note: Now updated for Curse of Osiris. Yay!
The Scathelocke is a gun that players fell in love with during Destiny 2’s beta. It’s a well-rounded weapon with decent range, firing speed, reload speed, and handling. It also packs one hell of a punch and is one of the more common auto rifles to start dropping once you hit level 20.
If you throw on a Kinetic Stability mod on one of your armor pieces, that makes the Scathelock a dangerous tool in both PvE and PvP, capable of picking up aliens and fellow guardians alike from a sizable range. Also, since it’s a Kinetic weapon you’ll do more damage on crit hits, though it doesn’t get any bonuses against Crucible opponents that happen to be in their super. Still, if you want a solid, well-balanced auto rifle, this is a great contender.
