The Deep Stone Crypt has been out for a while now in Destiny 2: Beyond Light and players are starting to get their hands on the new set of raid weapons. These weapons are perhaps the most unique and game changing raid weapons since probably the Vault of Glass in the original game. Let’s go through all of them and rate the best raid weapons to have from the Deep Stone Crypt raid in Destiny 2: Beyond Light and which god rolls you should be shooting for.
6. Bequest – Best Deep Stone Crypt Raid Weapons
PvE Roll: Thresh & Surrounded
PvP Roll: Thresh & Assassin’s Blade
Honestly, Bequest is releasing at an unfortunate time. It’s actually one of the better swords in Destiny 2: Beyond Light, on paper, and it looks fantastic like all of the other Deep Stone Crypt raid weapons on this list.
The problem is that it’s always going to be in the shadow of Falling Guillotine and The Lament. Heck, it may also not really outshine Temptation’s Hook and the unique things it can do.
There’s just no way for Bequest to match the raw power of a whirlwind attack from a properly rolled Falling Guillotine or a Banshee’s Wail combo from The Lament.
If The Lament wasn’t so easy to get, I’d say Bequest could at least be a decent stand in until you get a good Falling Guillotine roll, but alas, that’s not the case either.
If you’re going to use Bequest, use it for its unique perk Thresh, which isn’t found on any other sword in both PvE and PvP.
5. Commemoration – Best Deep Stone Crypt Raid Weapons
PvE Roll: Reconstruction & Rampage
PvP Roll: Dynamic Sway Reduction & Under Pressure
Commemoration is one of the few non-sunset machine guns left in Destiny 2: Beyond Light. Although it doesn’t share the exact same stats as Hammerhead (it lacks its range and aim assist), it does share the same archetype of the famed Black Armory machine gun and that alone should put it on the radar of many guardians.
The 450 RPM adaptive frame archetype just feels like the right balance of power, speed, and magazine size on machine guns, and if you get a roll with Reconstruction, one of the new Deep Stone Crypt raid perks, you’ll get a bit of all worlds as well.
Reconstruction allows for a gun to slowly reload on its own, even when stowed, up to double of the gun’s normal capacity. That means Commemoration’s base 59 round magazine can be doubled 118 and increased even further with Backup Mag and Tactical/Appended Mag.
While Commemoration is number five on this list, mostly because the raid weapons are so good, and machine guns are kind of just “fine” currently in the meta, as there are so many great add clear weapons and better boss damage weapons, don’t sleep on it if you like machine guns. It may surprise you.
