Destiny 2 Guide: The Best Guns to Use in PvP According to Top Streamer
1. The recommendations are based on Destiny 2 beta
2. The images the gun are just to show you how the weapons look like and the perks in the images are not relevant
Better Devils - Hand cannon
With each hit, there will be a small explosion that causes area damage. 2 customization options for the clip: increases capacity but decreases reload speed, or increases reload speed but discard remaining bullets in the clip — it all depends on individual preference and play style. Better Devils may not be the best hand cannon but it's a very good one in all aspects.
Nergal PR4 - Pulse rifle
This pulse rifle provides a perk allows you to fire full auto, which may not be a necessary thing for some players in PvP. The other perk that significantly increases the stability when firing but slightly decreases the range is a better option for PvP. There are 2 scope perks and they all looks good.
Copperhead-4SN - Sniper rifle
This sniper rifle deals high damage but it's difficult to master. Your crosshair will deviate a lot when you get shot and that means you have to pick your spot very carefully and handle the timing carefully as well.
Main Ingredient - Fusion rifle
One of the best guns in beta. With it you have a chance to one-shot-kill an enemy using ultra.
Nightshade - Pulse rifle
Reload to increase damage after a kill is a good ability, while the perk increases stability, reload speed and clip capacity is also good choice for most players. Besides, there's a scope perk that increases range and move speed.
Minuet-42 - Hand cannon
The hand cannon can improve the accuracy and range on the opening shot and this will trigger each time you fire on a new target. There are 2 clip perks that can increase reload speed and you can choose one according to your play style.
Sweet Business - Auto rifle
It's recommended that you try to predict enemy location with radar. The gun's firing speed increases over firing, so fire behind the cover and don't go out until you reach the max firing speed. You may become underdog with this gun if you and your enemy fire at the same time. In simple words, the gun is not for all combat situation.
Retrofuturist - Shotgun
It's good in all aspects and the only problem is can you get close to the enemy and kill him with a shot. You can choose the perk that reduces bullet spread in order to deal more damage to the enemy.
Mtashed though sidearms and SMGs weren't good enough to use for PvP in most case. Scout rifles were also not recommended.
