The arrival of The Witch Queen expansion in Destiny 2 has sparked massive interest from players wanting to know all about crafting weapons. With weapons playing such an important role in the game, it’s easy to see why there is so much excitement and hype about the crafting process. If you are one of the many who are wondering how crafting works in Destiny 2, we have got just the guide for you. Here, we will show you all you need to do to craft weapons in the game.
Destiny 2 The Witch Queen Weapons Crafting Guide
To craft weapons in Destiny 2 The Witch Queen, you need to take part in and complete The Witch Queen’s campaign to go to the Enclave on Mars. Before doing so, you will unlock something known as the Deep Sight Ability. This is the ability that allows you to gain access to the Enclave. Here, you will take part in a quest called The Relic. This quest will run you through all of the basics of the process of crafting weapons.
Once here, you will need to unlock Patterns. Patterns are the equivalent of blueprints for crafting weapons in Destiny 2. You can get them through several different ways inside The Witch Queen expansion. Some of these methods include successfully completing quests and certain objectives. Before you get your hands on any patterns, however, you will have access to the Legendary Glaive Pattern by default. You can use this pattern to play around and understand patterns better.
What is Deepsight Resonance in Destiny 2?
Deepsight is a new ability that is unique to The Witch Queen in Destiny 2. With its help, you can unlock the Deepsight Resonance, a helpful tool that assists you in your quest for finding weapons.
Upon inspecting any weapon with Deepsight Resonance, you will be presented with an objective. Completing the said objective will allow you to gain access to the extraction of the essence of any one of the concerned weapon’s perks.
This extraction will allow you to receive crafting materials that you can use to either forge or reshape your guns.
Now, let us take a look at how the crafting process takes place at the Enclave on Mars.
Weapons Crafting Process in Destiny 2
Upon interacting with the central device in the Enclave, you will find two options, they are Shape and Reshape.
Picking Shape will result in the crafting of a new weapon with Patterns, Deeplight Resonance, and other materials you may have come across and collected. Once you decide the pattern you wish to craft, you will need to choose from a few perks.
- Magazine – The Magazine trait will tweak the capacity of your weapon’s magazine. Apart from this, it will also help you alter certain factors like reload speed, range, and capacity.
- Intrinsic Trait – This particular perk is more or less the main bonus for your weapon.
- Momento – The Momento helps add a unique tracker to your weapon. Once your weapon undergoes the process of forging, however, you will lose them.
- Barrel – This perk offers a boost to the primary stats of your weapon such as range, reload speed, stability, and handling.
- Trait #1 – You can choose which perks you wish to assign as your weapon’s main perks.
- Trait #2 – You can choose which perks you wish to assign as your weapon’s main perks.
Picking Reshape will simply result in the alteration of perks on a weapon that already exists. You can keep tweaking a weapon as much as you like, along with the ability to reforge crafted weapons. However, you will not have the opportunity to reforge weapons.
How to Level Up Weapons?
To level up weapons and increase their level, you need to use your weapon when completing objectives and defeating your enemies. Doing so will help you earn XP for the said weapon, allowing you to level up.
So there you have it. This is all you need to know about crafting weapons in Destiny 2 and how to level up your weapons. As you can see, the scope for growth is extremely vast in The Witch Queen expansion of the game. We recommend you take your time and patiently explore the world of crafting inside this game.
