Welcome to Destiny 2 Weapon Crafting Guide! The craftable weapons system is popular among players and gives them not only powerful new guns to play, with but also something to collect and progress. As a result, each season, the Bungie team keeps expanding and adding new guns to the crafting weapons pool. Let’s take a closer look at the weapon crafting feature introduced in the expansion Destiny 2: The Witch Queen.
How Weapon Crafting in Destiny 2 works
The Witch Queen expansion brought about weapon crafting an entirely new system. You must own the Witch Queen expansion so this may not be applicable to everyone but still worth explaining. The TLDR on the system is this, any purple weapon you find has the chance of being a “red bar”
If you highlight the weapon, it’ll show you if it can be extracted. The weapons that can be extracted mean, after a certain amount of repeats you can craft the weapon. Once you craft the weapon you level it by equipping and killing enemies. This allows you to re-craft the weapons with god roll traits and perks. The trick to doing this is yes RNG but if you can do the current raid once a week you’re guaranteed a red border, currently that’s King Fall in Season 18 and Season 19 will be a Deep Stone Crypt.
The crafted weapon – Taipan-4FR
I got incredibly lucky on my return to Destiny 2 and shortly after got all the red boards needed for the Taipan-4FR. Consider this the god mode weapon in PvE for boss fights with Arrowhead break, advanced battery, triple tap enhanced trait, firing line enhanced trait, and vestige stinger you’ll be doing well over 90k critical hits in raids fully buffed. This weapon meta isn’t going away any time soon and truly makes PvE much easier especially if you have a group of players running it, you can MELT boss fights. Red bars and crafting weapons apply to all sorts of content like solo, PvP and so forth and consider this system one of the main draws for buying the Witch Queen.
