Destiny 2: Top 20 Best Ghost Shells, Ranked

Destiny 2 screenshot, showing a ghost shell

Few things represent our personalities in Destiny 2 like the ghost shell we decide to put on our interstellar navigator… plus whatever colors we choose too.

Spend enough time with a Ghost you like and you won’t want to leave their side.

But choosing a shell for your floating companion is more than purely aesthetic. There are traits to consider, and of course, just how hard each one is to get.

You may love a shell, but grind for it for a couple of days and the love will fade away.

To help any struggling guardians looking for the most stylish and practical shell they can cover their disembodied guiding voice with, I’ve come up with the ultimate rankings list. Browse along and see what grabs your attention, I’m sure there will be something here you just can’t pass over.

20. Generalist Shell

Generalist Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: All characters created after the New Light update get this shell during the tutorial mission; it’s the one equipped on your Ghost by default.

While not the most unique or powerful of the Ghost Shells, it’s hard to deny the unassuming appeal of your first shell.

It’s compact, it’s practical, what else do you need?

Regrettably, it’s a terrible shell in terms of traits. And by that I mean it has none.

Couldn’t they at least give it Speed Demon or something?

19. Peerless Precision Shell

Peerless Precision Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This Exotic shell used to drop from Steadfast Engrams in Season 4.

If your aim is to never miss a shot, there’s nothing more representative than this target-looking Ghost Shell.

As its description says, it’s a shell “for Ghosts who never lose sight of their target”.

To help you in your endeavor to become a peerless, precise shooter, this shell has a couple of useful traits, along with a random mod.

Omni-Telemetry lets you produce Weapon Telemetry with all types of weapons, and Speed Demon makes your Sparrow spawn faster and reload your weapons as you ride.

18. Lunar Shell

Lunar Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: Keep an eye on the Eververse, and buy this whenever you see it on sale. Worth it!

One of the most interesting-looking shells available for Guardians is the Lunar Shell, an Exotic that looks more like a witch’s crystal ball or a Piece of Eden than a shell

But that’s perfectly fitting into Destiny’s universe of techno-mysticism.

The Lunar Shell has one of the most valuable traits you can get on a Ghost Shell, Guiding Light, which gives you an invaluable 10% XP bonus that you’ll love when grinding seasonal rewards.

It also provides the Speed Demon bonus and another random mod.

17. Eyeball Shell

Eyeball Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This shell may drop from any Bright Engrams you get your hands on.

Not to be confused with the considerably more eyeball-looking Okular Fortitude Shell (also a pretty solid Ghost Shell), this item has a spherical design reminiscent of something Portal’s Aperture Science might produce.

Unlike other shells with set bonuses, the Eyeball Shell provides two random bonuses.

So you could have two of them that are entirely different from each other. Neat!

16. Knight’s Peace Shell

Knight’s Peace Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This used to be a reward from going Flawless in the Trials of the Nine back during the Warmind season.

The Knight’s Peace Shell shines bright like a diamond and claims a place as one of the prettiest ghost shells in D2.

Along with Omni-Telemetry so you can produce Weapon Telemetry for Banshee-44, this Exotic shell has the excellent Guiding Light trait and a random mod from a pool of cache and resource detectors for different destinations like Io or the EDZ.

15. Star Map Shell

Star Map Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This shell used to drop from Illuminated Engrams during the Curse of Osiris season.

In accordance with its name and description, this shell has a dark blue color with luminous accents reminiscent of the night sky.

If you’re the kind of Guardian who wants to chart the stars, you can’t go wrong with the Star Map Shell.

It’s one of the few shells with the Treasure Hunter trait, which detects caches within 50m in any location and increases Glimmer gain. Amazing whenever you’re grinding for resources.

Otherwise, it has the Omni-Telemetry ability and a random mod that’ll give you additional faction consumables in one of several possible destinations.

14. Alchemical Dawn

Alchemical Dawn Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: You’ll get this unique shell from completing Crucible matches and earning rank-up packages from Lord Shaxx.

According to its description, this Exotic Ghost Shell is ideal “for Ghosts who are ready to see fire rain”. Bad ass.

The Banshee’s Favorite trait will help you generate Telemetry at a faster rate than usual from any kills you get with Energy weapons.

It also has the Vanguard and Crucible Scanners, which net you more faction consumables during such activities, and a random Scanner mod for one of the game’s many destinations.

13. Starlight Shell

Starlight Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: Despite drop rates being abysmally low, this shell can be obtained from completing activities in the Dreaming City, chief among them the Ascendant Challenge .

This rough-looking steel shell offers two entirely random mods.

As such, it may seem weird to give it such a high spot on our ranking, but being able to farm it statistically guarantees you’ll get a good roll eventually.

12. Kill-Tracker Ghost Shell

Kill-Tracker Ghost Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This Legendary shell used to be available as a pre-order benefit only, but can now be acquired from Lord Shaxx at the cost of some Legendary Shards.

This is one of those items you get exclusively to brag to other Guardians about your prowess in the Crucible and overall badassery.

Not only does it track your total kills in both Vanguard and Crucible activities, but it also provides two random mods.

If you’re lucky, one of them will give you 10% extra XP in the Crucible.

It looks great in its default blue and orange color, but this shell takes wonderfully to most shaders too. The possibilities are endless.

11. Constricting Shell

Constricting Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This Legendary shell is part of the Eververse’s Season of the Worthy merchandise, and can only be bought from that store.

Featuring an amazing design depicting a snake organically wrapped around the shell and the Hunters’ logo on the back, this is easily one of the coolest ghost shells for anyone proud of their Hunter heritage.

In addition to Speed Demon and a random mod, this shell gives you access to the Public Defender trait which considerably increases loot from public events.

This can make grinding them quite profitable.

10. Rust Punk Shell

Rust Punk Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: Can\ be found in both Nostalgic and Etched Engrams, which you’ll have to take to Tess Everis at the Eververse shop to decrypt.

If you’re going for a steampunk-themed Guardian look, you can’t go wrong with this rusty-looking shell.

That said, what ultimately elevates this ghost shell is definitely the Treasure Hunter trait . It’s incredibly useful and quite uncommon.

9. Sanctified Vigilance

Sanctified Vigilance Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: Used to drop from Fond Memories Engrams decrypted at Eververse during the Season of the Dawn.

This intricately ornamental black shell with golden accents is perfect for Guardians who don’t mind looking too elegant for any occasion.

Public Defender is easily this shell’s most valuable feature, along with Omni-Telemetry and a random mod.

8. Crimson Shell

Crimson Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This Ghost Shell was available for purchase from the Eververse during the Crimson Days (St. Valentine’s Day) celebration, in Season of the Dawn.

Edgy Guardians will feel naturally drawn to this Exotic shell’s pointy edges and menacing red-tinted glow.

In terms of bonuses, it has the super-valuable Guiding Light for 10% more XP from all sources, and Banshee’s Favorite is always useful to grind Weaponsmith rewards.

It also provides an extra random mod.

7. Predator Sun Shell

Predator Sun Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This Exotic drops from Solstice Engrams, only available from Tess Everis during the Solstice of Heroes event.

There are few other Ghost Shells with such a dark, ominous-looking design.

It’s reminiscent of a black sun with ritualistic meaning, which makes it perfect for Guardians with an interest in the occult.

Luckily for all macabre-enthusiast Guardians, the Predator Sun Shell isn’t only appealing but useful thanks to Public Defender increasing Public Event rewards, a random mod, and Omni-Telemetry like most other top-tier shells.

6. Traitor Primus Shell

Traitor Primus Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: The Traitor Primus Shell is part of the seasonal Eververse merchandise from the Season of the Dawn.

Described as being perfect “for Ghosts who know only endless ambition”, this shell has an intimidating look that’s also literally among the largest.

It doesn’t even fit in the item’s picture!

Like many other shells, this one enables your Ghost to produce more Weapon Telemetry thanks to the Omni-Telemetry trait.

In addition it has the Public Defender trait, which makes it ideal for farming Public Events, and a random mod.

5. Contender’s Shell

Contender’s Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This shell can only be obtained by running the Leviathan raid .

While your ghost will look like a Smartphone in a protective case rather than a mystical aspect of the Traveler, this shell is an absolute must if you’re farming equipment from the Leviathan Raid.

In addition to tracking the number of times you’ve done the raid, its Seeker of Brilliance trait enables Bright Engrams to drop in the last chest.

Plus on top of that, Seeker of Opulence makes all Exotic drops from Leviathan 50% more likely to be Year 1 Exotics you don’t already own.

4. Cosmos Shell

Cosmos Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This old-timey shell used to drop from Bright Engrams in Season 2.

Humans have always marveled at the majesty of the universe around them and its mysteries, and this didn’t change with the arrival of the Traveler and subsequent rise of the Guardians.

This is ideal to show your love for the cosmos by encasing your Ghost in the shining stars.

The Guiding Light trait used to be exclusive to the Cosmos Shell, and it remains its most appealing feature, as you just can’t beat a 10% increase in XP gain.

It also has Omni-Telemetry and a random mod which will help you find resource caches in one of the game’s planets.

3. Almost Mighty Shell

Almost Mighty Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This shell is part of the Eververse’s wares during the Season of the Worthy.

Easily the funniest shell in the entire game is this Exotic from Season 10.

It’s a parody of the Almighty, the Red Legion’s system-destroying superweapon… except it’s just a ball with two measuring sticks attached to it.

Thought you were getting an Almighty shell? Well, you thought wrong.

Ironically with the Treasure Hunter and Banshee’s Favorite traits, this is actually a pretty mighty Ghost Shell, and one that you shouldn’t pass up if you see it in the Eververse.

2. Sagira’s Shell

Sagira’s Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: Get this amazing shell by completing all 11 of Osiris’ Lost Prophecies for Brother Vance while on Mercury.

A fan-favorite for its connection to Osiris’ witty and loyal companion, Sagira’s Shell looks just like the legendary Guardian’s Ghost.

While both of its traits are region-locked to Mercury, they remain incredibly useful, increasing glimmer and faction consumable acquisition, as well as revealing caches and resources in a 75m radius.

If only this also made your Ghost sound like Sagira…

1. Omolon Shell

Omolon Shell Destiny 2 Ghost Shells

Obtained: This shell was added to the Eververse’s wares during Season of the Dawn.

The Omolon Shell is the only one in the entire game bringing together both the Guiding Light and Treasure Hunter traits, arguably the best you can get on a shell.

That said, I think it’s fair to say what makes this shell so exceptional is that it looks exactly like a Pokéball if you use the Crucible Vermillion shader on it.

Just imagine how much clout you’d have rocking this!

Destiny 2: Best Ghost Shells, Ranked

There can only be a fine selection of the very best Ghost Shells in Destiny 2 to give the Little Light some fashion.

  • The Generalist Shell is a nostalgic and iconic Ghost Shell that holds sentimental value for many Destiny 2 players.
  • The Almost Mighty Shell features a funny design that pays homage to the terrifying Almighty ship in the game.

Destiny 2 features many ways for players to customize their character. From their class, subclass, weapons, and transmog gear. However, one key aspect of this customization may go under the radar in Destiny 2 , as the importance of the Ghost should never be understated. The Ghosts are filled with Light that gives Guardians their powers, and to bestow this Little Light with a fancy new Ghost Shell shows them that they are adored.

RELATED: Best FPS Games To Switch Off Your Brain While Playing

Players have over 20 Seasons of Ghost Shells to choose from to find the best Ghost Shell in Destiny 2 that they will want to provide their Ghost with. Some of them are great for their humor, whereas others just simply look cool. Destiny 2 ’s best Ghost Shells are a matter of preference, as there are hundreds of them to enjoy.

8 Generalist Shell

Born from the Traveler, built of machinery and Light, the Ghost is your companion and faithful guide. Although there may not be anything inherently special about the Generalist Shell, it’s one of the reasons why it is one of the best. This Ghost Shell doesn’t need a fancy hat, or a funny car to make it unique. Instead, the Generalist Shell has nostalgia value on its side, for this is going to be the first Ghost Shell of many new Guardians that began their campaign after the Red War had ended.

The Generalist Shell is the common Ghost Shell that every player will start the game with. It’s an iconic design, and Destiny 2 fans will recognize this Ghost Shell and its longevity as the staple of Ghost Shells, and the first form of an eternal Little Light friend.

7 Almost Mighty Shell

For Ghosts who have delusions of grandeur. Nothing seemed more terrifying to Destiny 2 players than the Almighty, a Cabal ship that traveled solar systems to drain and eat Stars to collapse a solar system in total darkness. The Almighty was a grave threat to the solar system and the Last City of Earth, so it would only make sense that a Ghost would want to feel as powerful as this once grand Cabal ship.

Players can find the Almost Mighty Shell in the Eververse Store for Silver. It features a funny design and a play on the word ‘Almighty’. The design of the Ghost Shell has two long wooden rulers poorly taped onto the top and bottom of the shell, making it one of the longest and wackiest Ghost Shells that is completely out of place.

6 Exotech Shell

For Ghosts who look toward the future. The Exotech Shell is a relatively new Ghost Shell that was introduced during Destiny 2 ’s Season 19, Season of the Seraph. It has a fairly unique design from the rest, and instead of featuring a Ghost Shell in a funny costume, or a hat, it instead has a nice layer of armored plating that acts as a Ghost Shell for once.

RELATED: Destiny 2: Best Female Characters, Ranked

Players that use the Exotech Shell might find its design intricate and rewarding, and enjoy the technical aspect of the Shell from the details of armored plating and wires. The ears of the Shell also make it more interesting. Perhaps those that use the Exotech Shell simply enjoy the fashion side of Destiny 2 or the logic behind having an armored Ghost.

5 Tyrant Shell

For Ghosts who aspire to a higher form of intelligence. The Tyrant Shell is a true menace and a grand contrast to other shells. Whereas most Ghost Shells are cute and fun, the Tyrant Shell doesn’t hide its sinister meaning. This Ghost Shell seems directly inspired by the Darkness and The Witness’ Pyramid Ships that have been seeking the Traveler across the universe for eons.

To wield the Tyrant Shell may prove that the Guardian in question is darker than one realizes. If there’s a member on the Fireteam that is using the Tyrant Shell, it’s best to keep one eye on the enemies, and one eye on them, as who knows if and when the Darkness will sway them and their Darkness Ghost Shell.

4 Lampion Shell

For Ghosts who wish for an ever-brighter future. Introduced in Season 9, players could pick up the Lampion Shell from Eververse. The Lampion Shell easily brightens the room when it's at its darkest, and players can expect the Guardian that wields the Lampion Shell to have a warm presence and a desire to help fellow Guardians.

Its warm orange glow and lamp design prove that hope still lies within the Light, and even when the Darkness and The Witness seems to have taken all from the Last City, there will always be that one Guardian and Ghost Shell there with a desire to help . The Lampion Shell is a cute addition to Destiny 2 and a warm one at that.

3 Spelunking Shell

For Ghosts who brave the depths. Despite being titled as a spelunker, the Spelunking Ghost Shell can be used as anything, and that’s what makes it so great. The Spelunking Shell can unlock the Guardians’ inner expression for their love of the archaeologist Indiana Jones, or perhaps just their adoration of the Wild West and cowboys.

RELATED: Destiny 2: Strongest Raid Bosses, Ranked In Terms of Lore

With the Spelunking Shell equipped, players have free reign on the appearance side of things to change the Ghost Shell’s hat color. This means that players can truly express themselves with any color. A brown leather, a vibrant pink, or even something more wild.

2 Clicker Shell

For Ghosts with an unknown lifeform taking control. Although the Clicker Ghost Shell can only be purchased for Silver in the Eververse Store, it’s worth mentioning as one of the best Ghost Shells out there. Not only is it a perfect collaboration for PlayStation fans and those that adore The Last of Us and the terrors of the fungal Clicker enemy, but it has a very cool effect that is exclusive to this Ghost Shell alone.

When players pull out the fungal-infested Ghost Shell, not only are they greeted with an invasive storm of spores, and an infected blue Ghost eye that has turned a deep orange, but they will hear the Ghost Shell chatter like a Clicker enemy from The Last of Us . It’s great attention to detail that will have players traumatized over their fights with Clickers from Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic game.

1 Ghoyster Shell

For the Ghost on the half shell. One of the funniest Ghost Shells to grace the hands of players, the Ghoyster Shell usually makes an appearance during the Solstice events that take place around Summertime in Destiny 2 . The beauty of this Ghost Shell doesn’t just come from it’s the tropical oyster shell that can be customized with any color but from the ridiculous eyes.

The Ghoyster Shell features a wacky set of googly eyes that will jiggle around when the Ghost Shell is moved. This can make for some comedic moments in pretty intensive Destiny 2 cutscenes, especially Lightfall. The Ghoyster Shell is one of the more unique and fun Shells for players to mess around with.

Destiny 2 is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

Overview [ edit ]

Ghosts are floating machine entities slightly larger than a human hand. They consist of a spherical core with a single glowing "eye", which is surrounded by a "shell" of several pieces that can separate and rotate freely around the central sphere. The default Ghost shell consists of eight roughly tetrahedral segments colored white with orange highlights, but there is a huge diversity of shells available that Ghosts can adopt for cosmetic purposes.

Every Ghost has a unique personality and identity, though not necessarily a name. This personality may be intended to complement that of the Chosen they're meant to eventually revive, [1] and often they have a name coined by their Chosen, [2] whilst others may take names they are given by others.

When a Ghost revives their Chosen, they are bonded together from that point forward. A "neural symbiosis" begins between them. Every Ghost has one specific person they are meant to revive. For some, their Chosen is a sort of "soul mate" and they know instinctively when the right remains have been found; [3] for others, they simply search until they find someone they feel is worthy of the Light or has a "spark". [4] [5] Many Ghosts have spent the time since the Collapse searching fruitlessly for their Chosen. In the worst case, their Chosen's corpse may be irretrievably destroyed before they could be revived, leaving the Ghost's quest eternally unfinished. [6]

Some Ghosts lose hope in ever finding their Chosen; these usually find some other way to make themselves useful, such as joining the Vanguard 's covert Spectral Network , where they act as scouts and spies for the Vanguard. Ghosts that never find their Chosen may be referred to as "unconnected" or "unpartnered". [7]

On revival, the Ghost's Chosen becomes a Light-bearing Guardian. Once a Ghost chooses, they can revive no one else. [8] It is possible for a Ghost to bond to someone other than their original Chosen, as with Shin Malphur , though that case required special circumstances.

Destiny 2 reveals that Ghosts enter a temporary catatonic state when the Light is cut off from them. Much like their Guardians, the Lightless Ghosts are severely weakened and damaged. Worse, should the Guardians be killed, then they will be unable to resurrect them. Fortunately, at least one Guardian was able to regain their Light from a broken shard of the Traveler in the European Dead Zone .

Function [ edit ]

For a Guardian, their Ghost serves as a companion, scout, librarian, and mechanic, waking ancient machinery and cracking ancient codes. [9] Ghosts can support Guardians by performing certain actions such as illuminating darkened areas, repairing technology from the Golden Age , hacking into machines, informing Guardians of incoming hostile threats, [10] calculating complex enemy behaviors, determine combat outcomes, mapping numerous projectiles and their myriad of trajectories, [11] and providing communications. [12] Most importantly, Ghosts may revive Guardians from death. As long as the Ghost survives, and barring special circumstances, Guardians are effectively immortal and may be resurrected fully intact from any death without consequences. The death does not have to be immediate, nor do they have to be revived in the same place they died. [13] Ghosts may also repair any injury a Guardian suffers in a matter of seconds, though can sometimes have such difficulty repairing Exo Guardians that it is easier to resurrect from scratch. [14]

Ghosts have no special control over their Guardians' actions, other than talking to them, or potentially withholding the resurrection of a Guardian who becomes dangerously erratic or monstrous. [15] [16]

Hive Ghosts [ edit ]

Although Ghosts have been associated with human Risen for most of their history, it has recently been revealed that there is nothing fundamentally preventing them from choosing non-human Lightbearers; a subset of Ghosts have chosen Hive partners, beginning with Immaru who resurrected Savathûn, the Witch Queen . These Hive Ghosts would become part of the Witch Queen's Lucent Brood , with Fynch , a renegade amongst them, stated that Savathûn and Immaru tricked a number of Guardian-less Ghosts to join them, claiming that the Hive were more deserving of the Light than humanity and would give the Hive Ghosts purpose. However, while human Risen often treat their Ghosts as friends and companions, the Hive Lightbearers are less generous in their treatment of the Hive Ghosts, with most treating them with contempt, suspicion and hostility. Immaru and Savathûn are the only known exception to this, as they treat each other as equals.

Due to the integral role the Hive Ghosts have to the Lucent Brood, the Guardians would have little choice but to target the Hive Ghosts to defeat the Hive Lightbearers to prevent them from rising again. This would be the first time Guardians would have to target Ghosts since the age of the Warlords . The Guardian's Ghost, would view the Hive Ghosts as traitors to humanity and the Light, unable to understand the reasons in their choice of siding with the Hive.

History [ edit ]

After the Collapse, the wounded Traveler deliberately shed many pieces of itself. These pieces understood intuitively that they had a mission to raise a companion from the dead, their Chosen, and created mechanical shells for themselves. [17] As far as the Guardians know, no new Ghosts are currently being made; each one lost is irreplaceable. [9] It is unclear whether all Ghosts were made at once, or over a period of time; Immaru is stated to be among the oldest of the Ghosts, suggesting the latter. Despite their origin as pieces of the Traveler, Ghosts do not possess any special insight into the nature of the Traveler, or into other matters pertaining to the Light and Darkness .

An unknown number of Ghosts continue to search for their Guardians; there are recorded instances of Guardians being revived after the conclusion of the Red War . [18]

Gameplay [ edit ]

Ghosts serve the important function of a narrative device, acting as a vehicle for important tasks such as informing players of new objectives, and also serve as a revive/respawn marker when a player's character dies during cooperative play. [10] Ghosts notify players when another player/Guardian has left the area or is revived. A Ghost can assist to more quickly revive another fallen player by holding the X button on the Xbox 360/One, the square button on the PlayStation 3/4, or the E key on PC. This can only be done in close proximity to a fallen player's death location, marked by their Ghost. On occasion, while on missions, certain objects must be scanned either to progress the narrative or provide additional context to the Guardian, which is visually represented as the Ghost flying out and scanning the object of interest. For example, scanning a dead Cabal on Phobos will have Ghost describe what legion it's from.

Ghost Shells [ edit ]

For more information, see Ghost shells .

Ghost shells change the appearance of Ghosts.

In Destiny's The Taken King expansion, defensive boosts and additional effects were added to Ghost shells. Rare shells had a single perk, while legendary shells had several to choose from. Shells could be purchased from The Speaker , the Vanguards , or Lord Shaxx . [19] As of Rise of Iron , Ghost shells marked with New Monarchy , Dead Orbit , or Future War Cult colors and symbols could be bought from faction representives.

With the release of Destiny 2 , Ghost shells provided fixed bonuses, such as extra experience gains, or built-in trackers for planetary resources. As of the Beyond Light expansion release, all Ghost shells became purely cosmetic, with four mod slots allowing customization of what bonuses a Ghost could provide, dependent on the upgrade level of the Ghost.

Known Ghosts [ edit ]

Ghosts without listed Lightbearers are not known to have one, either stated outright or simply never mentioned.

Notable Quotes [ edit ]

  • "This is some great data here. I wonder if Ikora gives hugs to Ghosts. Heheh... anyways, nice work." [20]
  • "Don't do that." —says this after the Guardian jokingly calls him "Little Light".
  • "Every Ghost is born knowing that we have to find our Guardian. We don't know what they look like. Not on the outside, anyway. On the inside, I'd always known who you were. And that together, we could be something more. When you think about everything we've seen, everything we've done, I feel like... I made the right choice. [...] Thanks - you know - for being my Guardian." —at the end of A Khvostov Rising Mission
  • "You know it's starting to concern me how seldom you talk. We've been through a lot together, the neural symbiosis is pretty far progressed, but you'd be surprised how little I understand what you're thinking." [21]
  • "I don't think I ever told you this, but Saint-14 was one of the first Guardians I ever met, even before I found you. I always hoped you would turn out like him. I wasn't disappointed. You were a good friend Saint. Goodbye." —at the end of the Not Even the Darkness Mercury World Quest [22]
  • "I don't have a mouth." —to The Drifter (character) during the mission variant of The Corrupted strike

Trivia [ edit ]

  • Ghosts were sometimes called "Dinklebots" by players, as a nod to Peter Dinklage , [23] who provided their voice in the game. As of The Taken King , Nolan North replaced Dinklage as Ghost's voice actor and redubbed lines from the original Destiny game. [24] Players have started to call this new Ghost "Nolandroid", though Nolan North himself prefers "Nolanbot". [25]
  • It was indicated pre-release that players need certain equipment before having access to a Ghost. [26] This is currently not the case, as the Ghost is present with the player from the start of the game in current builds (having revived them). [27]
  • Holding out a Ghost in some sections of the Moon opens doors. However, they are pitch black inside.
  • Ghosts may be deactivated and revived. [28]
  • The Ghost's saying "We always visit such cheerful places" is a possible reference to Cortana 's line in Halo 2 on the level Delta Halo , saying: "We always visit such nice places".
  • Dead Ghosts can be found in the game world which, upon revival, unlock new Grimoire cards.
  • According to an advertisement for Destiny , Ghosts existed during the Golden Age . [29] This is likely an error as all other sources have stated that Ghosts were created by the Traveler after the Golden Age.
  • The Ghost was depicted as taking part in the Ice Bucket Challenge in a short video by Bungie , which donated to the campaign. [30]
  • While dead Ghosts are considered to be common, a few sources suggest that Ghosts are virtually indestructible , requiring special means (usually from a paracausal source; a shotgun blast from a guardian, a longbow shot from an Awoken, or a darkness-empowered devourer bullet) to permanently destroy them .
  • In the Destiny 2 Dance Trailer a ghost is seen playing music suggesting that they were actually used as music boxes*

Ghosts of the Deep dungeon guide - Destiny 2

A complete walkthrough of the Ghosts of the Deep dungeon in Destiny 2.

Bill Lavoy

The Ghosts of the Deep dungeon is Season of the Deep’s big piece of content new to Destiny 2. This dungeon can be considered a raid-like activity intended for three-player fireteams, or even solo if you’re feeling up to the task. This guide will break down each encounter and give you suggestions for builds and weapon loadouts to use.

Last updated: Saturday, June 2, 2023, at 2:50 p.m. EDT. 

How to start Ghosts of the Deep

To start Ghosts of the Deep, you must first visit Hawthorne in the Tower and pick up a quest called Rise . This quest will require you to complete the Ghosts of the Deep dungeon. To launch the Ghosts of the Deep dungeon, you must use the Director to open the H.E.L.M., at which point you’ll see the dungeon on the map. Ghosts of the Deep (normal mode) has a Power suggestion of 1790 as of Season of the Deep. The Master version of Ghosts of the Deep has a recommended Power level of 1840, but all Guardians will be capped at 1820. There is no benefit to being above 1820 when completing the Master version of Ghosts of the Deep.

Required reading:

  • Ghosts of the Deep complete loot table
  • All 12 Memory of Darkness locations in Ghosts of the Deep

Ghosts of the Deep dungeon guide

Ghosts of the Deep launched on May 26, 2023, during Season of the Deep. The dungeon takes place on Titan, a location that has come back to the game after several years of being sunset.

Ghosts of the Deep Master changes

There are a few differences players can expect when loading up Ghosts of the Deep on Master difficulty. Firstly, players have come to expect Artifice armor from Master dungeons and the same holds true here. However, no Artifice armor drops from the opening encounter, Hive ritual disrupted . Here's what you can expect:

  • Player Power is locked at 1820, 20 below the dungeon's Power of 1840
  • Artifice armor only drops from the boss encounters
  • Unstoppable Ogres replace regular Ogres in the opening (Hive ritual Disrupted) and Ecthar, The Shield of Savathun boss fight
  • Barrier Knights replace the three standard Knights in the Simmumah ur-Nokruk, Lucent Necromancer boss fight
  • Vorlog, Risen in Heresy has an Arc shield

While the Barrier Knights pose a threat in the final fight, they do offer an opportunity to use Aeon Exotics to generate Heavy ammo. This is also true for Vorlog. You can keep killing him with Finishers while wearing Aeon Exotics to replenish your allies' Heavy ammo.

Hive ritual disrupted

An image showing the opening encounter of the Ghosts of the Deep dungeon in Destiny 2

The first encounter of Ghosts of the Deep will require you to disrupt a Hive ritual to open a door. To do this, several statues need to be imbued with a Vestige of Light. First I'll give you a bullet breakdown of what you must do, then explain it in more detail below.

  • Kill the two Hive enemies by the door
  • Kill the Soulfire Binder Ogre
  • Follow the green goo to a Hive rune
  • Take note of the rune symbol and remember it
  • Kill all the enemies at the Hive rune
  • Follow the green goo to a second and third Hive rune
  • Kill the Lightbearer at the third Hive rune
  • Finish the Lightbearer’s Ghost to get Vestige of Light
  • Whoever finishes the Ghost gets the buff, nobody else
  • Take the Vestige of Light buff back to the door
  • Kill the Veilweaver Wizard
  • Reveal the illusion to acquire Deepsight
  • Imbue the correct statue with the Vestige of Light
  • Repeat three more times (four total) to open the door

Start the encounter by killing the two Hive by the door you’re trying to open. Killing these two will spawn a Soulfire Binder Ogre. When you kill the Ogre, you’ll see some green goo appear on the ground and a message in the bottom left corner of your screen that says, “The way forward is revealed…” Follow that green goo, keeping your eyes peeled for a Hive rune in the sky, taking note of which rune it is. You will need to remember this. Once you see the rune, head to that location and some enemies will spawn. A couple of the enemies will also be called Soulfire Binders. When you kill the Soulfire Binders at the rune location, more green goo will spawn on the ground showing you the path forward.

Continue forward until you find the second Hive rune, which will be the same symbol as the first. Kill all the enemies, including the Soulfire Binders, and a third instance of green goo will spawn that you must follow. When you arrive that the third rune location, kill all the enemies, including the Lightbearer. As soon as you kill the Lightbearer, kill its ghost. The person that does this will receive the Vestige of Light buff with an 80 second counter. You will also see in the bottom left that a Veilweaver Wizard is revealed.

Return to the door where you began the encounter. To speed things up, use your sparrow. When you arrive, kill the Wizard and you will see an illusion on the ground. Any member of your fireteam can approach this illusion and reveal it, giving you Deepsight for 20 seconds. With Deepsight active, the member of the fireteam that has the Vestige of Light buff must approach the statue with the same Hive symbol you tracked through the area and interact with it when prompted to “Imbue with Vestige of Light.” If you get the wrong statue, that member of your team will die, and you’ll have to begin again without having made any progress. If you get it right, you’ll hear the satisfying sound of success and see a message that “A ritual statue manifests.”

Repeat this process four times and the door will open, granting you a reward chest. If you’re curious what can drop out of that chest, we have a Ghosts of the Deep loot table you can browse. When you’ve collected your loot, head inside and make your way forward to the second encounter.

Secret Chest #1

The first secret chest can be found near the “Reach the Wreckage” objective. You’ll hop into the water and move forward, dropping off a cliff. There are two entrances to the area with the secret chest, and quite a few Hive waiting for you at the bottom entrance furthest from the chest. As you emerge from the water, the top entrance will deliver you directly to the chest, while the bottom entrance will require you to fight some Hive. Either way, the secret chest is right at the entrance. If you go through the bottom, which is common, kill the Hive and then loop back around to find the chest almost directly above where you emerged through the bottom entrance.

Defeat Ecthar, the Shield of Savathun

The second encounter is a big bump in difficulty over the first, and Guardians would be wise to have a Well of Radiance on the team. My team included a Well of Radiance, Shadowshot, and Gathering Storm, which worked well. Use what you're comfortable with. Riskrunner is a hero in this encounter, as are Arc Resistance mods in your Chest Armor. Don't be shy about using your Supers, just be sure you have them back for the damage phase. Lastly, the difficult part is staying alive in the main room, and evading the boss while finding the runes underwater is the easy part. Split the roles in a way that makes sense for your team.

  • Kill the praying Acolytes
  • Kill the Blistered Knights
  • Kill the Keeper of the Deep Ogre
  • Reveal the illusion to gain Deepsight
  • Note the three Hive rune symbols on the wall
  • One fireteam member goes underwater
  • That person finds the matching runes and touches them
  • That person returns to the surface
  • Kill the Lightbearer Wizard and its Ghost
  • Whoever kills the Ghost gets Vestige of Light
  • Take the Vestige of Light to a statue and imbue it
  • Repeat this for a second and third Lightbearer Wizard
  • Kill the Wellkeeper Knight
  • Step into the pool it spawns where it died and take down Ecthar's shield
  • Damage Ecthar and repeat until he’s dead

Begin the second encounter by killing the four Acolytes praying near the fountain. This will spawn the boss, Ecthar, the Shield of Savathûn, into the room. It will also spawn a bunch of adds and three Blistered Knights. Kill the Blistered Knights to spawn a Keeper of the Deep Ogre. Once you kill that Ogre, wherever it is, an illusion will appear near the fountain. Any member of your team can reveal the illusion to grant the entire team 20 seconds of Deepsight.

While you have Deepsight, look at the left and right walls of the room to see eight Hive runes, four on each side. Three of these runes will be lit up. You must take note and remember all three of the rune symbols.

At this point, one member of your team (minimum) must hop into the water, ideally through the smaller holes on the left and right. This will bring the boss with them, leaving the two remaining members of the fireteam in the room to kill adds. The person underwater must then track down the three symbols that appeared on the walls and choose the option to “Touch Rune” when you spot it underwater. Once you have correctly touched all three runes, while maintaining your Pressure Resistance and evading the boss, return to the surface and reunite with your team.

At this point there will be Lightbearer Wizards in the main room. When you kill one, be sure to kill its Ghost. The person that gets the kill on the Ghost will get the Vestige of Light buff. That person must go to one of the three statues in the room, all of which are up the stairs, and choose the option to “Imbue with Vestige of Light.” There is one statue on the left stairs, one on the right, and one at the back in the middle. Once your team has killed three Lightbearer Wizards and their Ghosts and imbued the three statues with the Vestige of Light, you’re ready to kick off the damage phase.

The moment the last statue is imbued with the Vestige of Light, a Wellkeeper Knight will spawn just in front of where the fountain is. Kill this Knight and it will drop a pool at its feet. Step into the pool and begin your damage phase by taking down Ecthar's shield. Once the shield is down you don't need to stay in that pool the Knight dropped if you don't want to. In this tight of space, Rocket Launchers are not advised. What works is a Warlock with a Well of Radiance, and even a Hunter with the Gathering Storm Super. The Well of Radiance is almost mandatory to keep you alive. Hit the boss with everything you have and when he becomes immune, repeat the process until the boss is dead.

As additional advice, it should be noted that any number of players can go underwater to complete the rune section. If you want to have three, that's fine. It's also noteworthy that once a single rune has been touched, a Lightbearer Wizard will spawn, so you could have a member of your fireteam kill that Wizard and imbue a statue before you're even finished with the underwater section to speed things along.

Secret Chest #2

The second secret chest can be found shortly after the second encounter, and just before you enter the arena to fight Simmumah ur-Nokru, Lucent Hive. When you get to a section where you must hop from one platform to the next, killing Shriekers as you go, you're in the right area. At some point an Ogre will spawn and walk towards something that resembles a gazeebo. Kill the Ogre, then hop up onto the gazeebo to find the secret chest. This is the last secret chest in the dungeon.

Defeat Simmumah ur-Nokru, Lucent Hive

The final encounter is a tricky one, and definitely has the toughest mechanics, but once you get the hang of it you should be fine.

  • Approach the Ghost and crush it to begin the encounter
  • Approach the illusion and Reveal it to gain Deepsight
  • Note the three locations with orbs which are connected
  • Heart (always one of the three locations)
  • Head to one of the locations and stand near it so it glows at your feet
  • Kill Vorlog, Risen in Heresy while standing at the glowing location
  • Heart must be completed last during this sequence
  • A lens will spawn in the sky
  • Look through the eyeglass towards a Hive symbol to reveal a rune
  • Repeat steps 5 through 7 at the two remaining locations
  • Head through one of three chambers full of water to find a Lightbearer
  • Note the Hive rune symbol in that room
  • Kill the Lightbearer and its Ghost to get Vestige of Wizard/Knight/Acolyte
  • This buff will last 60 seconds and must be imbued within that time
  • If the timer on the buff runs out, you die
  • Return to the main area
  • Imbue the correct location with the Vestige of Light
  • The order does not matter here
  • Repeat steps 10 through 16 until all three locations are imbued
  • Begin the damage phase
  • Repeat until Simmumah ur-Nokru, Lucent Necromancer is dead

Begin the encounter by crushing the Ghost near Simmumah, ur-Nokru, Lucent Necromancer. Reveal the illusion to grant your team Deepsight. Use Deepsight to note three locations in the main area that have dark orbs on them. These three locations will be connected by a string of light. Move to one of the locations and stand close enough so that the ground glows beneath your feet. Wait until Vorlog, Risen in Heresy appears, and kill him while you’re standing at the location, with your feet inside the glowing area. This will spawn a lens in the sky. Look through that lens, aiming your weapon at the symbol of the Hive, to reveal a Hive rune. 

You must repeat the process two more times, once at each of the two remaining locations. The only difference is you don’t need Deepsight each time. Deepsight, for the time being, is only used so you can see the three active locations. Once you know where they are, you only need to lure Vorlog, Risen in Heresy to each location, kill him while standing at the glowing locations, and then use the lens to reveal the Hive rune. You must complete the heart location last only during this sequence. Once all three runes have been revealed, you’re onto the next part of this encounter.

An image showing a map of the Simmumah ur-Nokru encounter in the Ghosts of the Deep dungeon

With all three Hive runes revealed, enter one of the chambers, pass through the water section, and emerge in a back chamber where you’ll find a Lightbearer. This could be a Wizard, Acolyte, or Knight. Kill the Lightbearer and its Ghost to get the Vestige buff, take note of the Hive rune symbol, then return to the main chamber. You will need to reveal the illusion to get Deepsight, then approach the Hive rune that matches the one you saw in the chamber and imbue that location with the Vestige of Light. This process must be repeated three times, at which point you’ll enter a damage phase.

When the damage phase begins, you'll need to stand at one of the three locations, inside the pool, and lower the boss' shield. This is best accomplished with a shot from Arbalest, which will drop the shield with a single projectile. Do not shoot rockets and throw your Super at the boss until the shield is down. Once the shield is down, move around as required. If the battlefield is littered with Heavy Ammo, move around and pick it up if you feel that's going to help to chunk more of the boss' health. A good strategy is to have one teammate with Gjallarhorn, and two others with strong Legendary Rocket Launchers (my Adept Hothead is my baby here). The Gjallarhorn user fires rockets at the boss, which grants nearby teammates Wolfpack Rounds. This does an incredible amount of damage. Consider gathering up at the head to complete your damage phase, as it gives you a great view of the field and the boss can't crush you like at the heart location.

When the damage phase ends, repeat the entire process until you get another, and until the boss is dead. Take note that the locations that must be imbued will change after each damage phase, so you will need Deepsight to identify them. The heart location will always be one of them. Throughout this encounter, you must have the Deepsight buff to see the three active locations, and you must have the same buff to imbue each location with the Vestige of Light.

Once again, a Well of Radiance is great here. Simmumah, ur-Nokru, Lucent Necromancer will move around the main area to the last location you revealed a Hive rune and can wreck you in seconds. Arc Resistance mods are great, and Void Hunters will love invisibility here. Titans have lots of options for surviving, but I wouldn’t hate a Ward of Dawn here if your team is struggling to stay alive. For damage, consider Rocket Launcher with Tracking Module if you’re not hitting your shots.

Best weapons for the Ghosts of the Deep dungeon in Destiny 2

Image of Alexis Walker

Destiny 2’s Ghosts of the Deep dungeon is one of the tougher dungeons you can find in the game today, up there with the difficulty laid down by similarly chaotic gauntlets like Duality. More than most, the weapons that you bring down with you into the depths of Titan’s Arcology will define how successful—and how efficient—you will be in clearing the three main encounters with the Lucent Hive.

Luckily for those trying to optimize their dungeon deep dives, there isn’t just one path to take when it comes to the arsenal that you bring with you. Every piece of your loadout has a few different options that you can equip in each encounter and still find success, based on experiences from our own runs through the dungeon. What matters most is finding the right gun to pair with the subclass build you’re running—or if you’re running solo, the right gun to maximize your survivability.

Here are our recommendations for what you should bring into all three of Ghosts of the Deep’s core encounters , whether you’re flying in as a lone wolf or running with the pack.

What is the optimal loadout for Destiny 2’s Ghosts of the Deep dungeon?

First encounter – the hive ritual.

Three Guardians in Destiny 2 running through a forest toward a tall, domed section of Titan's Arcology building.

In Ghosts of the Deep’s first encounter, loadouts can be a lot more flexible than they are during the later fights that involve boss damage phases to contend with. Here, the focus of an optimal loadout is on speed and lethality. Regardless of whether you’re in a fireteam or solo, that means running your best ad clear build with whatever Special and Heavy weapons you’re most comfortable with.

Best weapons to disrupt the Hive ritual, as a fireteam or solo

The Forbearance grenade launcher from Destiny 2 in the weapon inspect screen.

  • Quicksilver Storm, CALUS Mini-Tool (with Incandescent), IKELOS SMG (with Voltshot)
  • Forbearance, Dead Messenger, Salvager’s Salvo
  • Gjallarhorn, Corrective Measure (with One For All)

We recommend players both running with a group and lone wolfing it should work with the old reliables here. Special grenade launchers, specifically Wave Frame grenade launchers such as Forbearance and Deafening Whisper , work great in this area due to their flatness. Depending on whether or not you’re already using your Exotic slot, you can even bring Dead Messenger along if you don’t have a good roll of a Legendary Wave Frame grenade launcher.

In your Heavy slot, it’s best to run either a rocket launcher or a heavy machine gun from our experience. Both weapon types are adept at clearing out the large groups of Hive that spawn in at each encampment and make quick work of the Hive Guardians and Ogres too when they start to get involved. Some of our fastest Hive ritual disruptions have come via Gjallarhorn paired with a double Special loadout, but alternatives like The Hothead or a machine gun with One For All work just as great.

We haven’t mentioned much about Primary weapons here, and that will be a running theme in this guide. As of Season of the Deep, Primary weapons have fallen to the wayside in many respects due to the prevalence of ability-focused builds encouraging players to use two Special weapons instead. If you are going to bring a Primary weapon into this encounter, Exotics such as Quicksilver Storm or a god-rolled CALUS Mini-Tool with Incandescent are your best bet.

Second encounter – Ecthar, the Shield of Savathun

Ecthar, a Hive Lightbearer Knight, fires at a Guardian during the second encounter of the Ghosts of the Deep dungeon.

The second encounter against Ecthar is a chaotic, close-range affair with some of the highest enemy density in Destiny 2 today. That means your loadout needs to be built around close-quarters combat as well, but the exact nature of the guns that you bring will depend on your subclass and what the rest of your fireteam has equipped.

Best weapons to defeat Ecthar, as a fireteam

The Arbalest linear fusion rifle from Destiny 2 as seen in the weapon inspect screen.

  • CALUS Mini-Tool (with Incandescent), IKELOS SMG (with Voltshot)
  • Arbalest, Wastelander M5 (with Trench Barrel), Deliverance (with Chill Clip), Acasia’s Dejection
  • Legend of Acrius, The Lament, Falling Guillotine, Tractor Cannon

A fireteam of Guardians has the benefit of building differently to complement each other and better optimize a damage phase against Ecthar. In both this and the final encounter against Simmumah, one player should have Arbalest equipped to be able to break the boss’ shield in a single shot at the start of the damage phase. This will drastically save both time and ammo at a moment when you want to have the longest damage phase possible.

For the other players, the Exotic you choose to bring varies depending on the setup. If you are using a Well of Radiance during damage—something we highly recommend—you can choose to use either swords or certain shotguns against Ecthar. For swords, you either want to be using The Lament or a well-rolled Falling Guillotine with Relentless Strikes and Whirlwind Blade. Alternatively, the Exotic shotguns in question are Legend of Acrius (if you have the catalyst) and Fourth Horseman .

Double Special loadouts will once again serve you well during the buildup phase where large groups of minor enemies need to be dispatched quickly. Running shotguns, fusion rifles, and trace rifles together is a safe bet since you’ll rarely have the breathing room to make use of more explosive alternatives that are just as likely to blow you up as the enemies standing directly on top of you. A Wastelander M5 or IKELOS SG with Trench Barrel is a great pairing to melee builds such as the Liar’s Handshake Arc Hunter that dominate this encounter.

Best weapons to defeat Ecthar, solo

The Lament Exotic sword from Destiny 2, displayed in the weapon inspect screen.

Ecthar is the first real hurdle in any solo run of Ghosts of the Deep. The build you bring is far more important than the weapons, but what’s crucial about the weapons you choose is that they ensure your survival when things start to get hectic toward the start of the damage phase. Our weapon loadout thoughts here are broken down based on subclass, which is something to take into consideration when planning out your own run as well.

Hunters are one of the strongest classes during the buildup phase where ad clear is the focus, but lack survivability in the damage phase. When running the Liar’s Handshake Arc build, you should pair it with two Special weapons that complement the style. This could be anything from two shotguns to a fusion rifle and a trace rifle, but what you take in should come equipped with perks like Trench Barrel or Reservoir Burst to maximize the value of each shot spent. Guns like the Wastelander M5 , Until Its Return and PLUG ONE.1 are some good starting points.

In the damage phase, Hunters don’t have access to sources of healing that Warlocks and Titans do in their subclass. Because of this, The Lament is the only easy-to-recommend option here, as each successive hit will provide you with a burst of healing that should keep you sustained against the oncoming damage.

Titans have it a bit easier. The Synthoceps build with Solar Throwing Hammers and a Tractor Cannon has been a go-to for Titans for over a year now, and that isn’t about to change with Ecthar. The heavy reliance on your abilities to do the heavy lifting also means you can be a little more lax with your Special and Primary weapon slots, but you’ll still find that fusion rifles like Deliverance or trace rifles like Acasia’s Dejection will be great here.

Warlocks have similar recommendations to the Titans, with Sunbracers, Well of Radiance, and Phoenix Dive offering up all the survivability you need to be safe during the damage phase. Running a weapon like Legend of Acrius for the damage phase, if you have the catalyst, will be the way to go. If not, you’ll most likely want to rely on The Lament as well. Then, take anything with Incandescent in your other slots, such as Acasia’s Dejection or CALUS Mini-Tool , to enjoy some perfect synergy with your Solar subclass in the remainder of the encounter.

Third encounter – Simmumah ur-Nokru

The final boss of the Ghosts of the Deep dungeon, a Hive wizard, summoning glowing white moths.

Ghosts of the Deep’s third encounter is one of the most challenging dungeon fights you can find in Destiny 2 . Even as a fireteam, it’s pivotal that you bring the right weapons with you for the damage phase since Simmumah has a hefty health bar that will take you a long time to chunk down if you aren’t on top of things. This is especially the case for solo players, who will more than likely find themselves in this encounter for an hour or more.

Best weapons to defeat Simmumah, as a fireteam or solo

The Cataclysimic linear fusion rifle from Destiny 2, as displayed in the weapon inspect screen.

  • Riskrunner, Quicksilver Storm, CALUS Mini-Tool (with Incandescent), IKELOS SMG (with Voltshot)
  • Arbalest, Witherhoard, Acasia’s Dejection, PLUG ONE.1, Pardon Our Dust
  • Cataclysmic, Taipan-4fr, Reed’s Regret, The Hothead, Gjallarhorn, Leviathan’s Breath

The damage phase against Simmumah is a ranged one, which means it’s finally time to break out the linear fusion rifles if you feel confident enough in your aim. Cataclysmic is the most popular choice here due to the existence of perks like Bait and Switch or Focused Fury, but alternatives like Reed’s Regret work just as great if you have a better roll of it. Whether you’re solo or in a fireteam, having Arbalest for the boss’ shield is even more crucial here than it is during the fight against Ecthar since Simmumah’s large health bar means every second of damage matters.

Players who are less confident in their aim can fall back on rocket launchers such as The Hothead , as long as it has tracking. Simmumah will move around from time to time during the damage phase, and it’s not worth the risk of wasting a rocket just because he shimmied to the side slightly after you fired a freehand one. Fireteams can also equip one player with Gjallarhorn to enhance everyone’s rocket damage against him.

There’s nothing particularly new here in the department of Special and Primary weapons that you should bring, but there are a few potential standouts that you might want to experiment with. There’s a lot of Arc damage in this encounter, which means that Riskrunner can make a case for itself as a useful Exotic Primary weapon to wield during the buildup between damage phases. Ranged grenade launchers like Witherhoard and Pardon our Dust too make an appearance in the recommendations now that combat is relegated to medium to long range. But players should still switch back to Arbalest before the damage phase begins.

Leviathan’s Breath has been a fascinating Exotic to see emerge as a DPS contender in this encounter, but players should be aware that they need the catalyst equipped if they want to use it over more traditional Heavy options like rocket launchers and linear fusion rifles. If you do have the catalyst, though, Leviathan’s Breath is well worth trying out for both full fireteams and solo players alike.

Guardians have been called to explore the depths of Titan's Arcology in Destiny 2's Ghosts of the Deep dungeon. Those that own the Lightfall Dungeon Key will be able to explore the depths of Titan's ocean to uncover the remains of a long-defeated foe and some powerful new weapons. If you're interested in a Stasis Wave-Frame GL or a Rapid-Fire Glaive, Ghosts of the Deep is a dungeon you'll want to farm.

As with most dungeons, Ghosts of the Deep features three unique encounters, two jumping sections, and a couple of hidden chests for perceptive Guardians to find. This guide will cover how to beat every encounter in this dungeon, explain the mechanics of every encounter, and showcase both hidden chest locations.

This dungeon contains many add-dense encounters, a boss fight that encourages close-range DPS strategies, and a final boss that encourages long-range sustained DPS strategies. Because of these wildly varied encounters, we're going to recommend that you bring multiple weapons to Ghosts of the Deep.

  • Add Clear: Machine Guns, Wave-Frame GLs, Trinity Ghoul, Osteo Striga, Riskrunner (if solo).
  • Ecthar DPS: Legend of Acrius or Lament.
  • Simmumah DPS: Linear Fusion Rifles or Leviathan's Breath (with Catalyst).

Beyond weapons, you'll also want a good build for this dungeon. Spec for 100 Resilience and use chest DR mods to increase your survivability. For builds:

  • Hunter : Nightstalker can use Gyrfalcon's Hauberk and a Void weapon for great add clear. Pair with Taipan or Leviathan's Breath for great DPS against Simmumah.
  • Titan : Sunbreaker can shrug off most damage with Sol Invictus. Consider speccing for Throwing Hammer DPS against Ecthar.
  • Warlock : Dawnblade makes DPS encounters incredibly safe through Well of Radiance. Use Starfire Protocol or Sunbracers to assist with add clear.

Return to Quick Links

Ghosts of the Deep features two hidden chests, both of which are found during platforming sections. You'll find the first one just before the Ecthar encounter and the last one right before Simmumah. As with other hidden chests, these chests can only drop items you've currently acquired from the dungeon.

Hidden Chest #1: First Hive Cave

When you first reach the ocean floor during the first platforming section, you'll have to enter a series of pressurized caves filled with Hive. In the first Hive cave you enter, hug the left wall until it ends and turn around. Climb up the ledge on your right and follow the path. You'll find the chest right next to a water barrier at the end of the path.

Hidden Chest #2: Ogre Gazebo

Just before you face Simmumah in the final encounter, you'll enter a spacious room in the Dreadnaught named "Ghosts of the Deep." This room will spawn a large Hive Ogre under a gazebo. Kill the Ogre and climb the gazebo to find the chest.

Right as you spawn into the dungeon, hop on your Sparrow and follow the dirt road. It'll take you to the middle of a Hive ritual just outside an entryway. Be sure to deploy a Rally Banner before starting. This is an add-intense encounter with many Lucent Moths , so bring a bullet-hose weapon. Machine Guns and Exotic SMGs do well here. If you're attempting solo flawless, consider using Riskrunner.

Start the encounter by killing the two Knights near the entryway. This will spawn a whole army of Hive behind you, one of which will be an Ogre. Killing the Ogre will coat one of the roads with green energy. You'll want to hop on your Sparrow and head in the direction the energy is facing. If you're going the right way, you'll eventually see a massive symbol floating in the air.

Remember this symbol and head under it. This will spawn a small pack of Hive units and a few Lucent Moths. Clearing out the Hive will spawn more energy. Follow it again and keep an eye out for the same symbol. Upon doing this three times, a Lucent Lightbearer will spawn. Kill the Lightbearer and crush its Ghost. You'll gain the Vestige of Light buff for roughly 90 seconds. If this drops to zero, you die. Return to the Hive ritual where you started the encounter.

A Wizard will be patrolling the ritual grounds. Kill the Wizard and use the Deepsight orb it drops. This will reveal a series of Hive statues around the ritual site. You'll need to activate the statue that matches the symbol you saw earlier. If done correctly, the shrine will materialize and the Vestige of Light buff will disappear. Activate four shrines to finish the encounter.

The depths of the Arcology are infested with Hive magic and the ruins of a great ship. Your goal is to descend into the ocean floor and infiltrate the remains of the Dreadnaught. You'll start in the Arcology itself. Look for a sort of turbine structure and make your way down. At the very bottom, you'll find a fenced-off area with some holes near the top. Jump into this area.

In this new room, you'll want to turn to your right and jump into the pipe in the wall. At the other end will be a massive chasm that's broken up with multiple floors of platforms. Keep dropping down until you reach a lobby area. Continue along the path to reach a drilling site.

Underwater Section

After defeating a few Hive guarding the area, you'll want to continue your descent. Look for a hole in the ground nearby to drop down a massive glass column. At the very bottom is a pool of water you can jump into, forcing you to use your pressurized suit.

As before, your goal is to descend as much as possible. Walk into any nearby air bubbles you see to repressurize your suit, but beware that air bubbles are not instanced in this dungeon. If you're playing with a group, you'll want to coordinate bubble grabs to ensure no one dies here.

Eventually, you'll reach the bottom of the structure with no clear way out. Look for some sunken walkways over the edge of this structure and jump down. You'll then want to look for a fan . Jump atop this fan to fling yourself back into the Arcology, repressurizing your suit. This platforming pattern repeats until you reach the ocean floor.

There is a hidden chest located in the first Hive cave.

The ocean floor is mostly linear and doesn't have many diverging paths. As with Salvage and Deep Dive, you're looking for barriers of water to walk into . These barriers indicate a room that isn't flooded, letting you fire your weapons and move as normal. Continue your descent until you reach the remains of the Dreadnaught. Get inside and complete a short jumping section to reach the next encounter.

This encounter includes plenty of adds and a highly mobile boss. Bring a good add-clearing build and a non-precision DPS weapon. Swords and Rocket Launchers work well here. A Well of Radiance is also highly recommended. Solo players will want some form of crowd control or healing to stay alive during the DPS phase.

Start the encounter by defeating the kneeling Acolytes near the center of the room. This will spawn Ecthar, a massive Lightbearer Knight that is immune to all incoming damage. You'll need to defeat three Blistered Knights in the ship to spawn an Ogre. Defeating this Ogre will spawn a Deepsight orb near the Rally Flag. Clear all the adds before using it.

Activating Deepsight will showcase three symbols on the plates adorning the ship's walls. Memorize these symbols and delve into the ocean. You'll find gaps in the Dreadnaught's floor you can use to reach the ocean floor. These exact symbols can be found lining the walls and flora. You must activate the same symbols you saw in the Dreadnaught. Activating the wrong symbol will kill you.

Each symbol you activate will spawn a small army of Hive inside the ship, one of which will be a Lucent Lightbearer. You must kill the Lightbearers and crush their Ghosts to gain Vestige of Light, same as the last encounter. Vestige carriers must deposit the buff into one of three Hive statues on the upper platform aboard the ship. Once all three statues are charged, the DPS phase will begin. Kill all the adds before starting the DPS phase.

Depositing all three Vestiges of Light will cause a Blistered Knight to spawn near the boss. Kill this Knight and stand in the energy pool it drops. This will grant a buff that allows you to damage Ecthar's immunity shield. Once broken, you'll be able to move anywhere in the arena to damage the boss. You'll have roughly 30 seconds to damage the boss here, so use everything you have. The boss will eventually regain its shield and reset the encounter, requiring you to repeat the process. There's no enrage mechanic here, so take as many DPS phases as necessary to defeat Ecthar.

The next part of this dungeon is a mix of underwater platforming and Dreadnaught navigation, nothing particularly difficult if you've made it this far. The only notable part here is a spacious room buried deep within the Dreadnaught. This zone features a Shrieker, multiple Wizards, and an Ogre that spawns near the end of the path. The second hidden chest is located directly above the Ogre's spawn location. Beyond that, kill any Hive you see, navigate through the Dreadnaught, and you'll reach the final encounter with little trouble.

As with the previous encounter, this is an add-dense environment that features a boss with a massive health pool. This boss remains mostly stationary, so Linear Fusion Rifles and Sniper Rifles are good options. A good add-clearing weapon is also recommended to make the pre-DPS phases much easier. You'll also want to get a good read of the arena before you start. Destiny veterans will notice that the massive creature in the ground is none other than Oryx, the Taken King. Make note of Oryx's exposed limbs on the ocean floor, as these act as ritual sites for this encounter.

Start the encounter by crushing the Hive Ghost floating near Oryx's chest. This will enrage Simmumah , a Hive Wizard attempting to resurrect the Taken King. A Deepsight orb will spawn in the arena shortly after she starts attacking. Interact with the Deepsight orb. This will reveal a triangle floating above Oryx, its vertices located above a specific body part. Standing near these body parts will give you the " Ritual Conductor " buff. Your goal is to kill an enemy called Vorlog at each highlighted ritual site.

If done successfully, you'll get a text prompt stating, "Vorlog is slain at the [body part] or Oryx, calling Simmumah to his death!" Two green icons will appear beside the invoked ritual site: a green circle and a Taken symbol. You must line up both symbols by looking at them in a specific location , similar to the Savathun symbols in the Witch Queen campaign . Find a spot in the arena where the circle perfectly surrounds the Taken symbol. Doing this correctly will cause a large Hive symbol to appear above the body part. You must repeat this two more times, revealing a total of three symbols.

Preparing For DPS

Now that each site is displaying a symbol, it's time to use Vestiges of Light to rid Oryx's body of Simmumah's dark magic. You'll notice water barriers on the edges of the arena. Each water section leads to a Lightbearer. The first time you enter this room, you'll find a specific Lightbearer (Wizard, Acolyte, or Knight) alongside one of three symbols you just uncovered. Remember this symbol ; it disappears when the Lightbearer dies.

Kill the adds in the room and destroy the Lightbearer's Ghost. This will grant the Vestige of the [Lightbearer] , named based on the type of enemy slain. Return to Oryx's corpse and activate Deepsight. You'll see dunking orbs below each shrine symbol. Dunk the Vestige in the shrine that matches the symbol in the Lightbearer room. For example, if you saw the 'hamburger' icon in the Wizard room, you'd dunk the Vestige of Wizard at whichever shrine is displaying the 'hamburger' symbol. Dunking at the wrong shrine will kill you. Match the correct Vestige with each shrine until all three are charged.

Charging all three shrines will start the DPS phase. All three shrines will emit energy fields that will empower your weapons, allowing you to damage the boss' immunity shield. Stand in the field and damage Simmumah until their shield breaks. You're free to reposition once the shield is down, but we recommend planting a Well of Radiance and damaging the boss from a static location.

After a few seconds of the damage phase starting, Simmumah will teleport away from your fireteam and remain stationary for the rest of the fight. Use your Super and Heavy weapons to damage the boss. They remain stationary from this point forward, so using precision weapons like Linear Fusion Rifles is a good idea. Keep damaging the boss until they're either dead or become immune. If the latter occurs, repeat this process until Simmumah is slain. Kill the boss to complete the Ghosts of the Deep dungeon.

Best Destiny 2 DPS Weapons for the Ghosts of the Deep Dungeon

Looking for the best boss DPS options in the Ghosts of the Deep Dungeon in Destiny 2? This guide has them.

best ghost in destiny 2

The best DPS weapons for the Ghosts of the Deep Dungeon can make one of Destiny 2 ‘s best endgame experiences more manageable. Both of the dungeon’s bosses have more than 12 million HP, ensuring you’ll only manage one or two phases with the best DPS options. Our guide will examine the best three weapons for each boss so you can go in prepared.

Best Destiny 2 DPS Weapons for Ghosts of the Deep: Ecthar, Shield of Savathun

The first boss in the Ghosts of the Deep Dungeon, Ecthar the Knight, is all about being up close and personal. Here, you’ll want DPS weapons that can do massive burst damage at close range.

Related: How to Use Checkpoint Bot

Best Overall Ecthar DPS Weapon: Legend of Acrius

best ghost in destiny 2

The first even Destiny 2 Raid Exotic, the Legend of Acrius has always been a top-tier choice, but its range is so low and its use case so niche that it was almost always overshadowed by more general options. This massive shotgun has found its home against Ecthar, especially during the Arc-focused Season of the Deep. You can easily one-phase Ecthar with three of them, especially if you have the Exotic Catalyst. Pair with Arc Surge mods for an even easier time.

Best Alternate Ecthar DPS Weapon 1: The Lament

best ghost in destiny 2

The Beyond Light quest Exotic, the Lament Exotic Sword, is a DPS monster like Acrius despite some of the mild nerfs it’s received since its release. Don’t expect an easy one-phase, but if you and your fireteam are all using the weapon properly (using the Exotic ability, then standard swings while the guard refreshes) with Solar Surge mods, it’s a comfortable two-phase.

Best Alternate Ecthar DPS Weapon 2: Tractor Cannon and Titan Bonk Hammers

best ghost in destiny 2

Solar Titan Throwing Hammers are a meme for a reason: they deal a downright criminal amount of single-target damage and can give you your health back quickly and easily. If you build up Roaring Flames x3 by taking out trash mobs with the Hammer, then equip Synthoceps, then use the Tractor Cannon to debuff Ecthar, you have a comfy four-phase solo fight and one of the wackiest one or two-phase kills with a team.

Best Destiny 2 DPS Weapons for Ghosts of the Deep: Simmumah Ur-Nokru, Lucent Necromancer

best ghost in destiny 2

Simmumah is too far away and moves around too much for any of the above Ecthar DPS weapons to be effective. The catch for doing DPS to Simmumah is she tends to move around and teleport a lot, making her top DPS strategies inconsistent at best. You will, however, need long-range options, and luckily there are tons of them available in Destiny 2 . Here are three of the best.

Best Overall DPS Weapon for Simmumah Ur-Nokru: Gjallarhorn and Hothead

best ghost in destiny 2

Even with the Apex Predator Rocket Launcher getting the likes of Bait and Switch, Hothead with Explosive Light/Clown Cartridge getting Wolfpack Rounds from Gjallarhorn is still one of the best overall DPS choices in the game. You need Simmumah to stay relatively still for optimal DPS, and one-phasing her requires some series meta tactics (using Shoot to Loot to gather fallen Heavy bricks, for instance), but it is possible. Two phasing her is pretty comfortable with this combo, however.

Best Alternate DPS Weapon for Simmumah Ur-Nokru 1:Levaithan’s Breath

best ghost in destiny 2

A seasonal Exotic from way back in Season 8, with its Catalyst, some Void Surge mods, and good aim, your team can have an excellent off-meta time one-phasing Simmumah. Leviathan’s Breath was a joke Exotic for a long time, and only a few people I ever knew sang its praises, and rarely as a top-tier PVE option. Now it’s getting a new lease on life four years after its release, and I’m happy for those who’ve always stuck by it.

Best Alternate DPS Weapon for Simmumah Ur-Nokru 2: Cataclysmic

best ghost in destiny 2

I’ve talked about how great the Cataclysmic is here once before , and while it’s a boring choice these days, considering how ubiquitous it was in previous seasons, I say it’s a bad choice in the Simmumah fight, either. There are enough trash mobs to activate Bait and Switch and get Solar Surge rolling easily, so while there’s nothing flashy about using this Linear FUsion Rifle anymore, if you want something that just works, there are few better picks.

While the weapons and setups outlined here are probably some of the best DPS choices against the Ghosts of the Deep Dungeon bosses, some wild ones are going around, including Witherhoard/Malfeasance, of all things. Ultimately, what you use is up to what you and your fireteam are most comfortable/have fun with.

Destiny 2

More From Forbes

It appears we know what destiny 2’s three post-final shape episodes are about.

  • Share to Facebook
  • Share to Twitter
  • Share to Linkedin

While all eyes are on The Final Shape, Destiny 2’s conclusory “Light and Darkness” expansion, Bungie has at least given us enough information to know they are not doing something drastic like stopping development on the game, recent problems or not.

We are being herded into a new non-seasonal format that is still…somewhat seasonal, but with three not four of them and longer, more substantive stretches of content. But at this point, there have been enough story hints about where things are going that I think we know the focus, or at least part of the focus, on what’s been announced already.

Echoes, Vex Episode – This one may be the most fuzzy, but as of this week, I think we got some strong hints that it will have to do with the Vex research team at the Ishtar Collective. We just saw the Ishtar symbol inside the Black Garden , where we know copies of the original team have been exploring. And there are hints other copies in there have previously made contact with the missing Vault of Glass fireteam Warlock, Praedyth. Also, after the explanation of Maya Sundaresh’s Veil research, my theory is that she lives on after death, and may show up as a Vex-infused antagonist, given that we have never really truly gotten a “face” from that race we can hate. Asher Mir may show up as well.

Best High-Yield Savings Accounts Of September 2023

Best 5% interest savings accounts of september 2023.

Revenant, Scorn Episode – Again, we have gotten hints about this in past seasons, and now a whole lot this season specifically. We know that there is a faction of Scorn loyalists who are working for Fikrul, specifically outside the plans of The Witness, even though it has been known to use Scorn in its armies itself. The Warlord’s Ruin dungeon discusses Fikrul at length, and the implication is that the Scorn there are from House of Kings, who are intimately tied with Uldren in Crow’s past life. We have killed Fikrul many times but he is effectively immortal, and it seems fairly obvious he will be the focus of this episode here as the only real Scorn figure who continues to lurk and scheme in the background.

Heresy, Hive Episode – Here, again, it seems pretty clear which Hive we are ready to focus on. We know that Savathun has been resurrected and is now off doing…something as we keep her ghost hostage. And the events of Season of the Witch had Eris using her Hive god power to cut Xivu Arath off from her Throne World, making her mortal and able to be hunted and killed. In theory. The one caveat here is that it’s hard to imagine Savathun not involved in The Final Shape in some significant way, and I could see something like The Witness transporting Xivu Arath through the Traveler Portal to act as some last line of defense, maybe as the campaign boss. But we just don’t know, and my money is on both sisters featuring heavily in this episode.

Those are my theories based on what I think is pretty solid evidence over the course of the past year. Let me know what you think.

Destiny 2: The Best Sniper Rifles For PvE

A fter years of constant updates and expansions, Destiny 2 has seen the rise and fall of certain weapon archetypes. The meta has shifted dramatically over the game's lifespan, ranging from buffing certain weapon archetypes or nerfing others into obscurity.

Destiny 2: The 10 Best Hand Cannons For PvE

Sniper Rifles are a fantastic DPS option in PvE during tough activities such as raids and Nightfalls. Even when you aren't firing a salvo of rounds into a boss, you'll want a good weapon for defeating Champions and other tough foes. For those looking for a good PvE Special weapon, here are the ten best PvE Sniper Rifles you should be using in Destiny 2.

Updated December 21, 2023, by Charles Burgar: Season of the Wish added a few new Sniper Rifles for Guardians to try, most of which are tailored for PvP play. With that said, the Naeem's Lance Sniper Rifle from the Warlord's Ruin dungeon is a solid DPS option for players who lack a Supremacy or Succession roll. We've updated this list to include Naeem's Lance, and we've updated a few entries with better perk recommendations.

How to obtain: Gunsmith Engrams.

Fugue-55 is a versatile powerhouse in PvE. This weapon is one of three Sniper Rifles to roll with Auto-Loading Holster and Vorpal Weapon , making this weapon fantastic against Champions and certain boss fights. If you're using your Heavy weapon for boss DPS, Fugue-55 serves as a great Special weapon for killing Majors and other foes that typically aren't worth Heavy ammo.

However, should you want a good boss DPS Sniper Rifle, Fugue isn't a bad option. Fourth Time's the Charm and Firing Line can roll on this weapon, allowing you to fire a barrage of high-power shots before needing to reload. It doesn't compete with the likes of Thoughtless, yet it is a solid DPS Sniper Rifle for low to mid-tier content. Keep your eyes peeled for a good roll.

Recommended Traits

  • Column One: Fourth Time's the Charm, Auto-Loading Holster
  • Column Two: Firing Line, Vorpal Weapon

Praedyth's Revenge

How to obtain: Vault of Glass raid (Oracle and Atheon encounters)

Praedyth's Revenge is the king of Rapid-Fire Sniper Rifles. Rewind Rounds allows Praedyth's to output more rounds than most Sniper Rifles. And thanks to a bug fix in Season of the Seraph, Rewind Rounds can now trigger on Divinity's critical bubble, making this a proper DPS option.

Destiny 2: How To Complete Every Vault Of Glass Challenge

This Sniper Rifle also dishes out a respectable amount of damage for a Rapid-Fire Frame. It can roll with High-Impact Reserves as well, increasing the damage most of your shots deal. And thanks to the weapon's ability to roll with Tactical Mag, you can use a Boss Spec mod instead of Backup Mag for even more damage.

  • Column One: Rewind Rounds
  • Column Two: High-Impact Reserves, Frenzy

Locus Locutus

How to obtain: Season of the Witch activities.

Locus Locutus is an Adaptive Frame Sniper Rifle that deals Stasis damage, filling the same niche as Thoughtless back during The Witch Queen. If you never got that weapon, Locus is effectively a one-to-one replacement. Overflow and Firing Line is the chase roll here, allowing this weapon to overflow its magazine and benefit from 20% more precision damage.

Beyond single-target DPS, Locus Locutus has a few rolls for more general play as well. High Ground is an interesting option, providing a 20% damage buff if you're attacking enemies from an elevated surface. Headstone is also a great pick if you use Sniper Rifles to kill packs of adds from a distance.

  • Column One: Overflow, Keep Away
  • Column Two: Firing Line

Naeem's Lance

How to obtain: Warlord's Ruin dungeon .

Naeem's Lance is the first 140 RPM Sniper Rifle to deal Strand damage. This means youc an get Slice and Hatchling on this weapon for some solid Strand synergies, although there are weapons far better suited for that niche. The same can be argued for this weapon's DPS potential, but it far exceeds most other PvE Snipers.

Reconstruction and Precision Instrument is the ideal choice for single-target DPS here, doubling your magazine size over time while buffing your precision damage with every headshot. This caps at 25% at five hits. It's a stronger buff than Vorpal Weapon and Firing Line, but it takes time to ramp up. While it's not the best Sniper Rifle for PvE DPS, it's a solid option for players unable to raid.

  • Column One: Reconstruction
  • Column Two: Precision Instrument, High Ground

Cloudstrike

How to obtain: Empire Hunts

Cloudstrike is an absurdly good Sniper Rifle, both for PvE and PvP. This weapon is a Rapid-Fire Sniper Rifle that generates lightning bolts whenever it lands a precision kill.

Lightning bolts from this weapon deal immense damage, capable of clearing out an entire wave of enemies in most activities. If that wasn't enough, Cloudstrike also generates these lightning bolts on rapid precision hits . Since this weapon fires at 140 RPM, expect a flurry of lightning bolts to rain from the sky whenever you use Cloudstrike on a boss.

It deals excellent damage, can clear out groups of PvE enemies with ease, and has a high base aim assist value of 68. Combined with its range of 64, Cloudstrike gives a lot of leeway for landing precision hits. No matter the game type , Cloudstrike is a fantastic Sniper Rifle that will serve you well.

How to obtain: Legendary Engrams.

If you missed out on last year's Thoughtless, Irukandji makes for an excellent replacement. This Rapid-Fire Sniper Rifle deals Stasis damage and features the Veist Stinger origin trait, causing the weapon to automatically reload a portion of its magazine on hit.

When paired with the likes of Fourth TIme's the Charm and Firing Line , you'll be dishing out some solid DPS from a safe distance. It won't dethrone Succession or Supremacy, but Irukandji is a solid weapon nonetheless.

  • Column One: Fourth Time's the Charm

IKELOS_SR_v1.0.3

Warmind's IKELOS weapons have been brought back for the third time, complete with new perk pools and a solid Origin Trait. Thanks to this weapon's perks, it's effectively a Solar version of Thoughtless with slightly better DPS thanks to its Rapid-Fire Frame.

Destiny 2: Starcrossed Exotic Mission And Hidden Chests Guide

As with Thoughtless, the IKELOS Sniper Rifle can get Overflow and Focused Fury , leading to a relentless barrage of high-damage shots against majors and bosses. If you dislike Overflow for raids and dungeons, consider a roll with Fourth Time's the Charm and High-Impact Reserves instead. And just like Thoughtless, this version of the IKELOS SR is fully craftable.

  • Column One: Overflow, Fourth Time's the Charm
  • Column Two: Focused Fury, High-Impact Reserves (with FTTC)

Izanagi's Burden

How to obtain: Purchased from the Exotic Kiosk in the Tower. Costs 1 Exotic Cipher, 150,000 Glimmer, 200 Legendary Shards, and 2 Ascendant Shards.

You won't find a better Sniper Rifle for one-shotting enemies than Izanagi's Burden. This Exotic Sniper Rifle is capable of collapsing its magazine into an overcharged shot , causing this weapon to deal an absurd amount of damage. One bullet is usually enough to kill a Major or even Champions in mid-tier content.

Since it's easier than ever to craft a Rocket Launcher with Auto-Loading Holster , Izanagi's Burden has become a staple for raid boss DPS . Fire a rocket, swap to your Izanagi's Burden, fire a shot, reload, and repeat. It's great for Nightfalls, raids, and overworld content when you need something to die in a single round.

How to obtain: Deep Stone Crypt raid (Atraks-1 encounter)

For those looking for a hard-hitting Sniper Rifle, the Deep Stone Crypt raid's Succession Sniper Rifle is arguably the best option available to you. It received a perk refresh in Season of the Seraph, although its new perk combinations can't top its top-tier combination of Reconstruction and Recombination .

Reconstruction and Vorpal Weapon make for an S-tier PvE sniper, allowing this weapon to obtain a six or eight-round magazine that passively reloads itself. Recombination can be used in place of Vorpal Weapon for better burst damage , sacrificing sustained DPS. Overall, Succession can one-shot majors with enough Recombination stacks, auto-reload itself, and is easy to use.

  • Column Two: Vorpal Weapon, Recombination

The Supremacy

How to obtain: Last Wish raid.

The Supremacy has always been seen as a good PvP Sniper Rifle since it was brought into Destiny 2 through Forsaken's Last Wish raid. Season of the Deep gave all Last Wish weapons a major perk refresh, including Supremacy. That perk refresh didn't just buff Supremacy for PvE, it made this gun arguably one of Destiny 2's strongest Sniper Rifles.

This is the first Sniper Rifle to roll with Bait and Switch , providing a 35% damage buff if you hit a target with all three of your weapons. This makes Supremacy great for backup DPS when your Heavy weapon runs out of ammo, outshining every other Legendary Sniper Rifle.

If you frequently farm raids and have a Divinity user, you might want to use Rewind Rounds and Fourth Time's the Charm . This combination lets you fire over 40 shots before needing to reload , giving Supremacy excellent sustained DPS.

While it won't top an Exotic Sniper Rifle, this is a Legendary weapon that resides in the Kinetic slot, letting you run an Exotic Primary or Heavy instead. And if you want your Sniper Rifle to slay adds with ease, you can use Kinetic Tremors in the final perk column to give Spuremacy some AoE damage. Best of all, this weapon is craftable .

  • Column Two: Bait and Switch, Fourth Time's the Charm, Kinetic Tremors
