Destiny TTK: Massive Breakdown of Trials of Osiris, Iron Banner, Raid, and Drop Weapons, Including Times-to-Kill, Stats, and Pros and Cons

Yesterday, redditor Mercules904 has shared a list on all the Vendor and Gunsmith weapons which can be found here. And now, he had done another great work in creating a list of ToO, IB, Raid, and Drop Weapons, Including Times-to-Kill, Stats, and Pros and Cons.

Several things to note:
  • Classes are broken down into Impact sub-classes.
  • All Times-to-Kill are assuming Guardian has max armor (not including the effects of The Ram).
  • All Pros and Cons are determined by comparing weapons within the same class, not by all weapons in general.
  • The list will give two final recommendations for each weapon class. The first will be the gun with the best combination of stats and Time to Kill. The second will be a gun with a slightly slower Time to Kill, but that is easier to use and/or more forgiving.
The list only includes ToO, Raid, IB, and Strike weapons.

Scout Rifles - For Time to Kill, The Inward Lamp with any of the recommended perks. For Ease of Use, Doom of Chelchis with the recommended perks.

Pulse Rifles - For Time to Kill, Grasp of Malok with perks that enhance Range and Stability. For Ease of Use, Nirwen's Mercy with perks that enhance Range.

Hand Cannons - For Time to Kill, The Water Star with recommended perks. For Ease of Use, Eyasluna with perks that enhance Aim Assist (SureShot IS or Hidden Hand).

Auto Rifles - For Time to Kill, Doctrine of Passing with perks that enhance Range and Stability. For Ease of Use, Haakon's Hatchet with perks that enhance Range.
