One of the effects of the move to fixed weapon rolls in Destiny 2 is that, in theory, it levels the Crucible playing field. There are – in theory – countless Kinetic/Energy weapon combinations with which a Crucible combatant can achieve success, without depending on a randomly-granted perk. However, in every FPS, there will always be what’s considered the “meta” or ‘best’ loadout, and Destiny 2 is no exception. Although we’ve only made it a few weeks since launch day, the dust in Lord Shaxx’s prized arena has already begun to settle, and there appear to be some weapons that
Trials is now live, and will be active until the next weekly reset. The map is Eternity, which has a mysterious otherworldly vibe to it.

Standard Bearers A few times during the raid, you’ll need to defeat the Standard Bearers to unlock the next room.

There are three Exotic weapons awaiting Guardians in the Destiny 2 endgame and they’re all rewarded from doing a World Quest. In order to access these World Quests you must have completed the main campaign. Each World Quest has their own suggested power level you should be at before tackling them, with the highest being 260 for the EDZ quest. As noted in this article, it’s best to complete these when your Power level is at least 260, since Exotics are an easy way to increase your power level. Rat King Let’s start with what’s quite possibly the most difficult
Every public event in Destiny 2 features a hidden requirement that, once met, will trigger a more difficult heroic version. Many of these will spawn an additional boss or spawn more powerful enemies, and it’s always worth it to do the heroic version, as they increase your chances at greater rewards, including Exotic engrams.

Reaching the max character level is very straightforward: just play through the game normally and you’re likely to be level 20 shortly after the campaign ends. As for Power level, the only way to increase it is through your gear. Armor and weapons will determine your Power, and that level will be limited once you reach 260.
