This is Destiny’s most used weaponry

For both new and old-guard Destiny players the primary weapon of choice is the Vision of Confluence, a legendary scout rifle with plenty of damage upgrade options, according to developer Bungie’s recent deep dive into its game stats.

“Weapon use in Destiny is pretty diverse and follows a very fat ‘long tail’ distribution,” according to a developer. “The guns on these lists are indeed awesome but a lot of players are finding that other, more obscure weapons better fit their tactical needs or their personal play styles. Besides, punching all of the aliens in the face is obviously the correct way to play Destiny anyway.”

The team over at Bungie pulled the top ten weapons for level 20 Guardians and above, based on the past two weeks of gameplay to create the chart below. They also pulled stats to create a list of the top primary weapon selection among all players and the top primary weapon used in Crucible matches. Both of those lists are below the chart.
