Fusion Rifles are surprisingly powerful in Destiny 2. Whether you main PvE or PvP, you”ll want a few Fusion Rifles in your arsenal.

Fusion Rifles are Destiny”s take on energy guns, firing a burst of energy after a short wind-up time. These weapons might have longer ranges than Shotguns, but Fusion Rifles are rarely seen in PvE or PvP content.

These weapons might not be as easy to use as most Special weapons, but Fusion Rifles offer a playstyle that no other weapon can offer. Thanks to its unique perks and Exotics, Fusion Rifles are great weapons to use against majors, most bosses, and function as solid holdout weapons in Crucible. Here are the best Fusion Rifles players should have in Destiny 2.
Updated May 28th, 2021 by Charles Burgar: Season of the Splicer has given Fusion Rifles a noticeable range buff. These weapons have now become a solid means of countering Shotgun rushers in PvP and clearing out waves of enemies in PvE. Fusion Rifles also saw the return of the Reservior Burst perk, a fan-favorite that originated from Loaded Question. Whether you love vooping enemies in PvE or PvP, these ten weapons are worth using.
How to obtain: Last Wish raid.
Techeun Force is the only Special weapon in Destiny 2 that can roll with Kill Clip and Rampage simultaneously. When both perks are active, this weapon becomes a monstrous weapon for clearing out majors and even bosses.
As fun as that sounds, it”s somewhat difficult to keep both perks up for more than a few seconds. Other perks for this weapon include Under Pressure and High-Impact Reserves, making it a solid Special weapon for PvP players. Techeun Force might not be the strongest Fusion Rifles in Destiny 2, yet its unique ability to roll with two damage perks simultaneously makes it a blast to use in PvE. Crucible players will likely prefer a High-Impact Frame or Telesto.
Column One: Kill Clip, Under Pressure (PvP) Column Two: High-Impact Reserves (PvP), Rampage (PvE), Rangefinder (PvP)
9 Vex Mythoclast
How to obtain: Vault of Glass raid.
Destiny”s first raid Exotic has made its way to Destiny 2. Awarded from the Vault of Glass raid, Vex Mythoclast stands as a unique hybrid between a Fusion Rifle and a Linear Fusion Rifle that uses Primary ammo.
Vex Mythoclast shares the same charge mechanic that Tarrabah uses, granting charges towards a supercharged mode as you get kills. In Vex”s case, the gun needs six stacks of Overcharged before it turns into a Linear Fusion Rifle for the next three shots. Each round from the LFR mode deals a surprising amount of damage, dealing slightly less damage than Arbalest. This makes Vex Mythoclast a solid workhorse weapon against red and orange bar enemies. If you can get a Charged with Light build for this gun, it becomes great as a hybrid Primary/Special weapon for PvE. Just be aware that Vex Mythoclast also shares Tarrabah”s mechanic of losing all stacks when you swap weapons.
Unfortunately, Vex Mythoclast should be avoided by most PvP players. It has a horrendous effective range of 21.5 meters, a range stat that”s on par with good SMGs and most Auto Rifles. Vex”s time to kill isn”t enough to compete with those weapons. If you can consistently land two kills with this gun to activate its Overcharge mode, you might find success with this gun in 6v6 modes. For competitive PvP, Vex Mythoclast isn”t strong enough to compete with the current meta.
How to obtain: Drops from the final encounter chests in the Last Wish raid. It has an escalating chance of dropping.
Have you ever wanted to fire a concentrated beam of explosive death at your enemies? If so, One Thousand Voices has you covered. As Destiny 2″s only Heavy Fusion Rifle, it packs one hell of a punch.

This weapon fires a beam of energy for a second, exploding multiple times shortly afterward. Players can quickly aim between targets in the middle of the beam firing, giving this weapon an absurd amount of add clear. Crafty Guardians can make this weapon spawn Warmind Cells by using the Wrath of Rasputin mod. You can even use Fusion Rifle Finder mods to spawn Heavy bricks for One Thousand Voices after a set number of kills.
With how powerful this weapon is, why isn”t One Thousand Voices our number one pick? Well, it”s a Heavy weapon, for starters. Players will have to sacrifice both their Exotic and Heavy slots for a weapon that has great add clear but mediocre single target DPS. Its reliance on Heavy ammo means it”s seldom used in PvP, making it not worth the Exotic slot in that sandbox. In PvE, One Thousand Voices is an underrated gem.
7 Trinary System
How to obtain: Gambit matches and Engrams.
Obtained from Gambit matches, Trinary System is one of the only non-sunset Adaptive Frame Fusion Rifles left in Destiny 2. This archetype has never been particularly great in PvE or PvP, but Trinary System doesn”t abide by the status quo.
With a whopping 24 traits to roll from, Trinary System has one of the most versatile perk pools out of any Fusion Rifle. Firmly Planted and Tap the Trigger makes this weapon a beast in PvP for those who can get used to sliding. If you only play PvE, this is the only other Fusion Rifle besides Coriolis Force that can roll with One for All, drastically improving this weapon”s damage output. Pair One for All with Feeding Frenzy to make a devastating workhorse weapon. Every single perk combination that makes a Fusion Rifle great can roll on this weapon.
Column One: Firmly Planted (PvP), Feeding Frenzy (PvE), Killing Wind Column Two: Tap the Trigger (PvP), Swashbuckler, One for All (PvE)
How to obtain: Trials of Osiris matches and Engrams.
For clarity, this entry refers to the Season of the Chosen variant of Exile”s Curse, not the version from Worthy to Hunt. This particular version has a new perk pool that has given Exile”s Curse a much more unique identity.
Do not be fooled by Exile”s Curse”s base stats. While this weapon seems unworkable from a stats perspective, Exile”s Curse has some of the most powerful perks a Fusion Rifle can roll with for PvP.
Slideshot and Kickstart is an absurd combination, giving you a massive boost to stability, range, damage, and charge speed whenever you slide. In essence, Exile”s Curse turns into a Shotgun with a moderate delay before firing, disintegrating targets from well beyond Shotgun distances. Perks like Quickdraw and Backup Plan can roll on this weapon for Guardians that enjoy using Fusion Rifles as a counter to aggressive players. There are far better Fusion Rifles for PvE, but it”s hard to find a Fusion Rifle that lets you get away with being this aggressive.
Column One: Slideshot (PvP), Killing Wind Column Two: Kickstart, High-Impact Reserves, Vorpal Weapon
How to obtain: Purchased from the Exotic Kiosk in the Tower. It costs 1 Exotic Cipher, 125,000 Glimmer, 200 Microphasic Datalattice, and 1 Ascendant Shard.
Jotunn is an Exotic Fusion Rifle that fires tracking Solar projectiles, instantly killing Guardians and most PvE enemies alike. It might look more like a toaster than a Fusion Rifle, but this weapon packs a serious punch.
After a long charge time, this weapon fires a slow-moving projectile that kills almost every non-boss enemy in a single blast. If the target lives, a burn DoT is applied to keep the damage going. Jotunn might not deal enough damage to use in pinnacle PvE content, yet its ease of use makes it a staple Exotic for some Crucible players. Set your sights on a target, fire a projectile, then wait for the fireball of death to make contact. From 6v6 Control to Trials of Osiris, Jotunn is a devastating pick.
How to obtain: Earn packages during The Dawning.
Bungie can”t fool the community; this gun is Erentil FR4 with some ornaments attached to the barrel. It has similar stats to Erentil, is part of the same High-Impact archetype, and even rolls with perks that made Erentil so noteworthy.

While it can”t roll with scopes, Glacioclasm still maintains the same degree of accuracy and lethality as its Year 2 counterpart. Under Pressure and High-Impact Reserves allows this weapon to kill enemies from hilariously long ranges in PvP. If you”re a much more aggressive player, consider a roll with Killing Wind and Swashbuckler. Kills will ramp up your range and damage output, allowing this weapon to shutdown Supers with ease. It”s not a bad weapon in PvE either.
Column One: Killing Wind, Under Pressure (PvP), Slideshot (PvP) Column Two: High-Impact Reserves (PvP), Swashbuckler
3 Plug One.1
How to obtain: Nightfall reward (rotates weekly).
Plug One.1 is one of the best PvE Fusion Rifles in Destiny 2. It”s one of the only Fusion Rifles with Reservoir Burst, a perk originally found on Loaded Question. The first shot of your Fusion Rifle will deal increased damage and cause defeated targets to explode, making it a fantastic weapon for clearing red bars and majors alike.
Unlike Loaded Question, it”s possible to chain Reservior Burst with each kill by using the Bottomless Grief perk. So long as you”re the only member of your fireteam, this weapon will automatically reload itself after every kill, allowing you to chain Reservior Burst. Alternatively, you can just use Feeding Frenzy.
If you fancy PvP, Plug One.1 is surprisingly good against Guardians. It can roll with Heating Up and Kickstart, allowing you to play quite aggressively with this weapon while maintaining great accuracy. Killing Wind and Backup Plan also make for a solid panic weapon when you get rushed by a Shotgun user. Overall, Plug One.1 is one of the best Fusion Rifles in Destiny 2, provided you”re capable of farming Nightfalls for a good roll.
Column One: Feeding Frenzy, Heating Up (PvP), Killing Wind (PvP), Bottomless Grief (PvE) Column Two: Reservoir Burst (PvE), Kickstart, Backup Plan (PvP)
How to obtain: Exotic Engrams found through Xur or world drops.
Telesto fans frequently call it the “besto” of Fusion Rifles, and they have a point. Telesto is an Exotic Fusion Rifle that, when it”s not breaking Destiny 2 in some obscure way, stands as one of the best Special weapons in the game.
This is thanks to its Exotic perk causing Telesto to fire Void projectiles that stick to objects. While it can be used as a standard Fusion, it can also create traps in PvP or turn a player into a walking bomb in PvE. Its potential for mayhem is endless and is definitely worth the Exotic slot. Telesto can also spawn Warmind Cells if you use this season”s Warmind”s Decree Artifact mod, turning Telesto into an S-tier PvE weapon.
How to obtain: Purchased from the Exotic Kiosk in the Tower. It costs 1 Exotic Cipher, 100,000 Glimmer, 150 Etheric Spirals, and 1 Ascendant Shard.
Many members of the Destiny 2 community vastly underestimate Bastion. Supposedly the player character”s favorite weapon, according to Saint-14, Bastion is a contender for one of the best PvP Exotics in Destiny 2.
Damage falloff on Bastion begins at around 20 meters, which is much further than most Fusions. Instead of firing one burst, Bastion fires three in quick succession. The amount of damage this weapon does per shot is enough to shutdown Supers and any Shotgun rusher. If players want to make this weapon a true terror, pair it with an Empowering Rift with Lunafaction Boots to hold down an objective. It”s a powerhouse in Trials of Osiris and Competitive Crucible. It might not be the best Fusion Rifle for PvE, but this weapon is so strong in PvP that it had to take the top spot on this list.
