Every Legendary Weapon Getting Sunset in Destiny 2: Beyond Light

Destiny 2: Beyond Light is scheduled to release on November 10th, there’s a lot of hype and anticipation building around this major expansion. Similar to both Forsaken and Shadowkeep, Beyond Light is going to shake-up the gameplay formula in a few radical ways. Perhaps the biggest (and most controversial) decision to have a large assortment of weapons not progress with the new expansion. While they will still exist in the world, specific guns cannot be infused higher than the current light cap of 1060. This means the weapon pool in Destiny 2 is getting significantly smaller and old favorites like The Recluse will be retired from the PVE scene.

To help you decide what to keep, we have compiled a list of every single legendary weapon that isn’t surviving the rotation. This is dozens upon dozens of weapons, many of which are extremely popular choices for both PVE and PVP game modes. If you’re unsure of what to keep, we also have a smaller list of every weapon that can be infused above 1060 and viable in Beyond Light. We won’t be including Exotics since those will all be available in the new expansion and aren’t impacted by sunsetting.

Here’s a complete list of every gun getting sunset in Destiny 2: Beyond Light:

Remember, while these weapons won’t be able to have their Power level increased, you can still use them in PVP activities such as Control. So if you have a god roll of Spare Rations and don’t want to give it up, this gun is still useable in some modes. Keep in mind, Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner take into account what your Power Level is, so sunset weapons will not be viable.

If you are looking to pick up some weapons going into Beyond Light I recommend Gnawing Hunger, Falling Guillotine, Dire Promise, IKELOS_SR_v1.0.2, Python, and Seventh Seraph VY-7. All of these are terrific guns that are perfect for either PVP or PVE. Each offers a diverse perk pool that allows them to slot into most popular builds. Remember, the IKELOS guns can also spawn Warmind Cells, so don’t feel as if you’re limited to the Seventh Seraph guns from last season.

Personally, I recommend keeping any god rolls even if they are being sunset this season. You never know if Bungie will reintroduce a weapon or if they will become dominant in the Crucible. That being said, you’ll need vault space so don’t feel too bad if you need to clear out room for all the new items coming in Beyond Light. After all, no one wants to have a full vault going into the next expansion!
