In Destiny 2’s PvP things are a bit different. The exotic weapons are a bit too specialized and in reality you just want something that can one-shot headshot guardians with relative ease without all the other bells and whistles or having to burn an exotic slot.
Adored added at the start of Beyond Light is still incredible popular but two new snipers have found their way into the mix: the aggressive frame Frozen Orbit sniper and adaptive frame Far Future, both of which are quite good. Take your pick depending on your play style and you can’t go wrong.
An interesting weapon that bucks the trend of exotic snipers not being great in PvP is Cloudstrike.
While it’s definitely slower to get kills with as compared to something like Adored, if you can wrangle its bulkiness and consistently land your shots, you have incredible multi-kill potential that no other sniper can match when enemies have grouped up thanks to its lightning strikes.
Revoker is the only sunset weapon that I’m still recommending in all of our weapon guides. Revoker is still popular in quick play where it works as it always did, and even in a power enabled activity such as Trials of Osiris I would not be surprised if players take the power hit to use this unique weapon. Bungie should really just make it an exotic at this point.
