Shadowkeep: Best Kinetic Weapons

Go Figure

This Pulse Rifle with 450RPM is dropped randomly by defeating enemies across the map so just keep on killing hope the RNG favors you. For PvE, it is best used with a medium zoom, Rampage, Outlaw and Ricochet Rounds. For PvP: Ricochet Rounds; Outlaw; Kill Clip; Medium Zoom Sight.

Its reliability as a weapon makes it most desirable. The PvE Rolls makes it ludicrously powerful when fighting Ads and when face-to-face with Majors. The PvP roll for PC (Ricochet Rounds, Kill Clip, and Outlaw) makes it so you do a great amount of damage with no recoil; whereas with the PvP roll for Console, you may have to make some alterations – Zen Moment will allow you to reduce recoil considerably. Along with this, you can have Kill Clip and Ricochet Rounds.

The Mountaintop

This Grenade Launcher is awarded in the ‘Pinnacle Weapon’ quest. A notorious weapon, it is famed for being the Kinetic Weapon with the greatest DPS. When augmented with the Spike Grenades, Pinnacle (a Perk that modifies another Perk) and the Micro Missiles Perks, it becomes a powerful weapon that can be used at your beck and call. However, it should be made blatantly apparent that these Perks are not easy to obtain. You’ll have to grind for HOURS in PvP to attain the level this guide speaks of.

Blast Furnace

Another Pulse Rifle acquired through Black Armory. Similar in many ways to Go Figure… but better! With higher base stats, it only gets better when you add in Perks. Have the same Perks as Go Figure, but in lieu of Outlaw you should get Feeding Frenzy (a regular skill instead of a precision kill activates the Perk). However, this weapon does require you to purchase the Annual Pass, and you must have the Third Forge unlocked.


You can find this Hand Cannon through the Menagerie of Rune (Rune of Desire + Red Rune) and it is highly useful in PvP. If you are lucky enough to get Eye of the Storm (Increasing accuracy as your health decreases) and Rangefinder (increases range) perks, they makes this a powerful hand cannon despite having less than 180 RPM.

Alongside that, you can attach any range-extending Barrel, Accurized Shots, and Outlaw – all of this to maximize the weapon’s range; similarly you can replace Outlaw with Rampage and have a roll that is lethal!
