Chroma rush also uses a Rapid-Fire frame with a large magazine. With great stability and 720 RPM, this gun absolutely destroys your opponents in Crucible. It can also be obtained by playing Override and by focusing Umbral engrams. One might argue that the Shadow Price Adept with a good roll might be a better option but this doesn’t change the fact that Chrom Rush is equally effective.

3. Shayrua’s Wrath: SMG

Shayura’s Wrath is a weapon that players will have to work a little harder for considering it is Trials weapon. Trials weapons and armor are always difficult to acquire given the fact that Trials requires a greater skill level than other PvP activities. However, this Particular SMG is a 3-win drop which makes it slightly easier for players to get it without losing their mind.

Shayura’s wrath is clearly the best SMG to have in your arsenal, especially while playing on close-range maps. Its Precision frame and 600 RPM allow you to inflict a great amount of damage, quickly.

Perks to have:  Killing Wind, Celerity, Heating up, Kill Clip.

4. The Last Word: Exotic Hand Cannon from Destiny 2: Forsaken

The Last Word’s appearance in PvP has been very volatile depending on the buff/nerf implemented to the gun. Ever since the ADS was nerfed out so PC players don’t have an advantage anymore, it was quickly forgotten by players. However, a buff to its hip-fire made it an amazing weapon for controller players and gave them an upper hand. Well, things are a little different now (Again!).

Apparently, Hip-fire grip got a buff with the Season of the Splicer and is now a great weapon to have again. While it is a good thing for mouse and keyboard players, it is even better for Controller players with aim-assist. Ultimately, with crossplay coming out this year, it will be the first-choice weapon for many controller players. Take a look at the video below to see exactly what has changed and how it works now.
