traveler's chosen
  • Brass Attacks (Energy, Void) – Season of the Chosen season pass reward.
  • Drang (Energy, Solar) – Complete the quest, My Captain on Nessus.
  • Devil’s Ruin (Energy, Solar, Exotic) – Exotic Cipher reward from Cryptarch.
  • Forerunner (Kinetic, Exotic) – Obtained via Magnum Opus quest during 30th Anniersary event.
  • High Albedo (Kinetic) – European weapon quest from Variks.
  • Peacebond (Kinetic, Stasis) – Possible drop from completing Iron Banner matches and turning in Tokens.
  • Seventh Seraph SI-2 (Energy, Void) – Random world drop.
  • Traveler’s Chosen (Kinetic, Exotic) – Purchased from exotic kiosk.

There are quite a few legendary sidearms you can choose from but among the most popular is Peacebond. It’s a very easy-to-use gun that rolls with very choice perks and is also a rare Stasis weapon that can pair very nicely with Stasis builds.

Devil’s Ruin is probably the best and most versatile Sidearm in Destiny 2 in PvE, but the only problem is you do have to burn an exotic slot on it. If you want a gun that can do it all though: short-range, long-range, innate unstoppable rounds, decent boss dps, decent add clear, Devil’s Ruin is a pretty solid choice. It’s essentially the jack of all trades, master of none weapon in Destiny 2 which kind of fits for a sidearm.

High Albedo is just an all-around solid sidearm in the Adaptive Frame archetype which means it fires a three-round burst. It can roll full-auto and wellspring which is a great combo for both PvE and PvP. Seventh Seraph SI-2, on the other hand, also has great perk combos but is in a lightweight frame. More importantly, though, it works within Warmind Cell builds.

Finally, Traveler’s Chosen is the other exotic worth looking at. While on its own its unique perk which helps you build up your abilities is useful, you might want to give it extra consideration if you have a build that is revolving around one or more of your abilities.
