Destiny 2: Shadowkeep introduced a new weapon crafting/questing mechanic called the Lectern of Enchantment. This Lectern will allow you to repeatedly quest for new moon weapons. There’s a large slate of these new legendary weapons, so we’re going to break down for you the best new moon weapons introduced in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep.
We’ll begin with some of the just okay weapons that you shouldn’t stress too much about getting, and then dive into some of the more viable options.
Best Legendary Moon Weapons in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep
Meh Tier – Super Situational or Useless Moon Weapons
So the weapons in this category struggle for a number of different reasons. They actually might be fine weapons, but are outclassed by something else in its weapon group that isn’t hard to get, or are actually just trash.
In the case of Loud Lullaby, there are just so many good hand cannons to choose from including Duke, which is a similar feeling hand cannon, that are probably going to be better in most situations. If you get a nice roll on it though and like the way it feels, knock yourself out.
I can say the same pretty much about Every Waking Moment. It’s hard to recommend a SMG that isn’t Recluse right now considering how good Recluse is. Even if you don’t have Recluse, I’d argue that the new Exit Strategy SMG or Huckleberry are still better options.
A Fine Memorial is completely outclassed by Hammerhead, the still reigning champion of legendary machine guns, and Night Terror is well, um, just a sword. Most swords feel the same and this one doesn’t have any super special perks to make it stand out.
- Loud Lullaby – Kinetic Hand Cannon
- Every Waking Moment – Void Submachine Gun
- A Fine Memorial – Arc Light Machine Gun
- Night Terror – Arc Sword
